The power this girl has with her words is breathtaking. The visuals odd the video even more so.

Justin and I watch the NTSB air crash investigations on YouTube, so when I heard about the Germanwings crash, I immediately thought that it was intentional - pilot waits for other pilot to go on potty break, locks him out, hits the "down" button, and, well, that's that. There was an Asian flight years ago where the pilot did this. But I'm horrified that I was right.

I would like to get this in, before people start the chatter about how the guy was mentally ill (he was) and that caused the crash... that the stigma about mental illness is why that plane crashed. The stigma is what caused that pilot to hide it from his employers, so that they did not know how he was suffering and struggling. So they did not know that they needed to support him through treatment and hold his place for him so he could stay employed. The stigma and the shame that it causes - and a brutal economic regime that lets people lose everything if they need to take a break from "being productive" - is what stops people for reaching out for the help they need, and acknowledging the limits that they have at least for this moment.

So if my newsfeed starts to be full of commentary that casts mentally ill people as the scary Other, I will have to edit my friends list and you will know why.

Florida climate scientists have been silenced by their governor and his political appointees. Jeb Bush used to govern Florida and he is a national leader for his party. Urge him to stand up for science today.

What can you expect of a conservative, they are only concerned that they get the money before anyone else does.  They see it as an opportunity to make money off of the poor.

Preparing to shoot our next episode of Database Ranger's Power Reviews with +Jacob Brode. This involves a bit of... redecorating. 

Sometimes I realize that, in spite of all my hopeless 13 year old expectations, I really do lead an interesting life. 

Here's one of our older episodes.

Yes, that’s right!  The duo who brought you The Ballad of Captain America’s Disapproving Face are playing live in the Boston area this weekend – not once, but TWICE!

Saturday afternoon at 2:pm will find us playing a house concert in Medford – 246 High Street, to be exact, though for space considerations, if you’d like to attend that one, please head over to the FaceBook event and RSVP.  We’d rather not make the Fire Marshals or our event hosts cry with this one if possible.

And on Sunday night, we’ll be doing a half hour set at the Plaza Azteca, beginning at 7:30.  ( http://murder-ballads.com/?event=worcester-ma-open-mic-at-plaza-azteca ) We’ll have T shirts and CDs available for both shows, and we’d honestly love to see some of our online fans in person if any of you can get to either show.

And if you can’t?  Well please consider shilling the shows for the benefit of what friends you might have who COULD get to the shows, but might not otherwise think to go.  We’re a small band, and neither of us is very good at the advertising end of things – we need all the help we can get!

Cheers, and I hope to see some of you this weekend!
Catt Kingsgrave and Adam D Fromm, a.k.a. Murder Ballads, will take to the house concert stage for the first time in longer than we'd care to admit, with folk originals, bluesified Anglo-Celtic traditional fare, left-field covers, and yes, the occasional bona fide murder ballad.

Speaking of brownies! If you take Alton Brown's standard brownie recipe (it's online - just Google Alton Brown Brownies!) and substitute in Bob's Red Mill GF All Purpose flour, it comes out absolutely indistinguishable from the original. The recipe also tolerates the substitution of margarine for butter very well, which is great because so many of us GF people are also casein-sensitive or lactose-intolerant. 

Normally I am Not A Fan of substituting an all purpose flour blend for wheat flour. It rarely does anything but fail. But in this case, there is so little flour in the original recipe, and all it really does is hold the chocolatey goodness in place, so the straight substitution works. 

Note that these are serious special occasion brownies. They use a lot of cocoa, and if you can afford expensive cocoa, it just kicks them up to major gourmand territory. Throw some dried cranberries or cherries in there, or some hazelnuts... OMG. I don't care if Martha Stewart herself came with elaborate petitfours and pastries, your brownies will be the first thing to disappear and the thing people remember the longest.

+Sarah Morehouse Not actually a conlang; ASL is, crazily enough, probably a creole of several different naturally occurring sign languages, including Martha's Vineyard Sign Language and French Sign Language.
