I found this timely video in a newsletter from an author I picked up in a promotion for mysteries with humor, and I am really looking forward to getting back to Killer Hair (which I had to drop when a library hold arrived)!

The beginning of this article is more than a bit thick for someone not of an academic bent, but the experiential studies are pretty fascinating! In particular I note that in the mead recipe, the time needed for several steps of it are given as how long it takes to walk a certain distance. I'm familiar with the idea of times given as how long it takes to say a particular prayer or rosary cycle (with or without repeats), but this more secular approach interests and pleases me.

I had a pho, but I ated it. It was yummy. There were crispy spring rolls, too, that had an unexpected hint of some unfamiliar flavor, which was pleasing. Restaurant recommended.

"I remember liking this get-up as a kid — it’s so black and cool! — but it looks a lot different to me now. Ignorance really can be bliss."

Yeah. I adored this movie back when it came out — still love it even now — but there's no denying that it thoroughly loses touch with reality and physics.

And in the end, that's not entirely a bad thing in what is at its heart a fantasy, after all.

"Put those pieces together — in that perfect balanced moment between fantasy and history, night and day — and Ladyhawke remains a well-deserving classic."

Can't decide between baklava and pecan pie? Embrace the power of "and"! This looks all kinds of spiffy!!!

Food for a great deal of thought, especially if you feel it's not your problem.

Oh, my friends. I know it is not your problem. I know more deeply and fully than you ever will that this is not your problem. I feel the sting of this being my problem every day. I carry the weight of this being my problem along with me everywhere I go. It is not your problem. It is, in ways you will never be able to comprehend, my problem.
A must read.

This is exactly what we need from men.

Today, I tagged eleven men — friends of mine, mostly — at the end of a long tweet thread, asking them to reach out to a popular Texas music critic who these eleven men follow on Twitter. I figured they follow him, so they at least know he exists — which is more than I knew when I woke up this morning. The critic had said a gross thing about Louis C.K., about how his jokes are more valuable than the women he sexually abused, and I asked for these eleven men to talk to this critic about what a gross thing he had said, and maybe explain to him why it was wrong. I did this because men who endorse and perpetuate rape culture do not care what women think — but they might listen to other men, guys they respect. This critic doesn’t care what I think, but maybe he cares what a few prominent men in the Texas journalism industry think. I don’t know. It was sort of a shot in the dark, because I’m sort of running out of ideas on how to end rape culture all by myself without bothering the men in my life too much about it.

I'm finally feeling well enough to want to be out and about again, especially since it's actually bright and sunny today, but at temps like these?!? Oh, hell no!!! No wonder I had such a hard time prying myself out from under the covers this morning!

For the Celsius speakers of the world, that's an overnight low of -6, a noon-ish temperature of about 1, and a forecast high of 2. I am so not ready for this shit!!!

Dammit, +Mozilla Firefox, would you fix this already?!? Videos should not autoplay by default. Turning autoplay off should not break videos.

This is the kind of thing that is pushing me faster and faster towards switching to another browser, even though I've been a pigheadedly loyal Firefox user since before version 1.

I note that three times as many sex crime and domestic violence defendants have these things, but the mere fact that they are even presented to victims makes me see red.
