After Debate

Two of the three of us watching and playing got a bingo.  I managed to eke out mine thanks to the last question ("is Hillary presidential?"), which was good for three boxes. 

I didn't X out racist or sexist because I was waiting for something overt, specific, and egregious rather than the typical poisonous subtext that informs his entire discourse.

Wow, Donald Trump has a lot to say about China.

ETA:  The Putin thing was in Question 6.

Too cold for me, although the temptation to live in the East again is great.

Boosting the signal to voters and string geeks.  Here is a beautiful project tying together this designer's heritage and creativity, with the proceeds going to a great pair of causes.

I’m donating all my profits from this shawl to organizations concerned with voting rights. Half will go to the League of Women Voters (the successor to the women’s suffrage movement) and half to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which works for voting rights, among many other civil rights issues.
 
When I decided to knit a shawl based on sunflowers, I really had no idea what I wanted to call it. Shortly after starting work on this shawl, it was International Women’s Day, and I was reminded that my great-grandmother had been a suffragist in Kansas as…

Michael Twitty's incandescent essay on being intersectionally gay knocked my socks off.  It is not an easy read, but it is a rewarding one.

I don’t write often on here about my sexual orientation because this blog focuses on my journeys through African American food history. I came out when I was 16 years old in my school newspa…

E. coli in flour? If this is true, it does not bode well.

Boosting the signal.
 
Flour recall. Because I seem to know a lot of bakers.

I just discovered this website at the nexus of string, thingmaking, robotics, education, and coding. So fascinating, with nods to tablet weaving, the warp-weighted loom, and more!

As a finale to the weavingcodes project we are running a series ofTanglebot workshops for all ages to provide a messy introduction into weaving, robotics and coding along with the artifacts and discoveries we’ve made on this project. Tanglebots are prototype/failed weaving robots (weaving is quite hard as we’ve discovered, so we are starting with tangles and seeing what patterns emerge).

I didn't think we'd see another album from Leonard Cohen; how delighted I am to be wrong!

On his 82nd birthday, Leonard Cohen has released a new song, the title track to his forthcoming album, You Want It Darker.

An army group in Turkey says it has taken control of the country, as bridges are closed in Istanbul and aircraft fly low over Ankara.

This is so mesmerizing!  It's an enhanced live take on Gustav Klimt's painting, Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I. 

I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at here.  Cosplay plus stop motion plus photoshopping, I guess?  The combination of effects situates the work pretty close to my uncanny valley.  Still, it's so gorgeously realized that I'm watching it anyway.

Judging from her wrists, hands and shape of her head, I'd say that is computer animation.
