Puppy dog's tails

<All boys have need of some recklessness. If they do not come by it naturally, it must be bred into them. The trick is titrating just enough of the stuff so that they are game for life's adventures but not liable to do something catastrophically stupid, like going to law school.>

It was on Halloween night that I first realized there was a problem. My three children—dressed as Darth Vader, a pirate fairy, and Tinker Bell—were making their way down Lee Street, in Old Town Alexandria, Va. The houses were decked with spider webs and all manner of spooky, expensive-looking accoutrements. Police had closed the street to traffic and hundreds of families milled about. It was Bobo paradise. My children walked up to a house where a...

Proud to be an orange square that melts easily

<The process itself was invented in Switzerland, in an effort to reduce cheese waste; scraps from various batches of cheese could be melted together and formed into a new, delicious product. In 1916, Canadian-American entrepreneur and cheese salesman James Kraft perfected the technique in the US, patented it, and started selling the very first process American cheese. It soon became immensely popular due to its long shelf life and easy shipping.>

What's in American cheese? There's a lot of hysteria out there about it being "full of chemicals" and "not real cheese." This explainer helps set the record straight by discussing the ingredients, process, and regulations around those melty slices.

I've been considering trying sodium citrate in our beer cheese sauce after reading this article. I wouldn't try making American cheese slices myself though, as I feel this is the sort of thing where I should at least have tried the original first.

Worthwhile Canadian Initiative Award

Once upon a time Michael Kinsley held a boring headline contest at The New Republic and "Worthwhile Canadian Initiative" won. *

Think of it as the anti-clickbait or coma-bait award.

I propose this as today's Internet winner of same: "Tiki’s Sweet Secret: Using Velvet Falernum In Cocktails".

At the Taiwanese-American “soul food” restaurant Win Son, in Brooklyn, the Teresa Teng cocktail is a clever crowd-pleaser made with cucumber vodka and lemon.

Code Blue!

Clickbait headline of the day: "A Prairie Dog Does Pull-Ups For A Donut… "

No link because, hey, you have a finite lifespan and need to spend that 15 seconds interacting with your family.

Remember them? A bunch of people who live nearby and, with any luck, look like you.

World Peace

<Instead I used the recipe from King Arthur and I will never use another; with some tweaks (in technique, the recipe is as fine as can be) it exceeded all of my chocolate wafer hopes and dreams. And then I made massive, cake-sized cookies instead of tiny ones, and it’s the best thing since icebox cake. For the filling, I made peanut butter whipped cream and I’m sorry, but it’s going to ruin your life. I had significant doubts about whipped cream’s ability to showcase the nuance of peanut butter and each of them were wrong. This whipped cream is terrifically peanut butter-y with zero textural compromise and together, this cake manages to be dead simple but exceeding all of our icebox cake hopes and dreams.>

I am pretty strict low-carb nowadays, anyway (keto). I'm not missing a thing. AND I get to eat stuff most people on a "diet" would be afraid to.

When you have clay in your hands, it's hard to avoid making birds.

<About 6 months before her passing, a visitor to her home asked Eva what the highlight of her life was; she told him, “Let us separate my work and my life… the high point in my life was having my two children. The high point of my work was the Museum Ware by Castleton China. This is my favorite set. I had a show there [at MoMA] you know, in 1947.”>

Heh. A web designer that extolls the virtues of "being kind to recipients" and products as "well behaved children."

Admit it, you want one

<An extraordinary art car on a fully restored 220 Cabriolet A, part of Hiro Yamagata’s renowned “Earthly Paradise” series. Since the early 1990s, Yamagata has worked on some three dozen of these cars, sourced from around the globe. Yamagata’s cars have been displayed at the Venice Biennale in 1995 and were also the subject of a hardcover book, Earthly Paradise, the introduction to which was written by the renowned Beat poet Allen Ginsberg.>

Don't Mind Me

Menja Stevenson's Bustour series

<In 2008, German artist Menja Stevenson created a work called “Bustour", which was equal parts performance art, photography project, and sociology experiment. She created clothing from in-use transit fabrics and then rode the coordinating lines, creating stunning photos and observing the reactions of other riders.

"I had to get into contact with the transport companies to get the fabrics; they're not officially available. I had to do a lot of persuasive effort to convince the companies to hand over the fabric! I was very proud of myself when I finally got them. I found some conservative looking dressmaking patterns on the internet, and the bags are my own design. It wasn't easy for me to sew the dresses; the rough and stiff fabric often broke the needles.

"Wearing them, you sweat like crazy, they feel like a knight's armor and it's hard to act naturally. I couldn't believe that many people didn't realize the connection seeing me and the seats together. Did they think that it was sheer coincidence? Some curious people at least talked to me, and a very few laughed, but most passengers would look shyly at me and quickly look the other way again.">
