Dear #Aurifil, it's time to join the 21st century.

Since I've followed Alex I've seen dozens of "promotional" photos of customers and designers sitting on his lap - all of them women.

I'm not sure what the subtext is supposed to be, but it's gallingly sexist and wildly unprofessional. It's time for Aurifil to examine their values and decide whether this is the face they want to present to a largely female audience.

I for one have been offput badly enough that I will be spending my money elsewhere.

Work crocheting! Not satisfied with handknitting a zillion cup cozies, I've started a Kestrel Wings in Blue Ridge Yarns Cotton Candy for the shop.

I wrote this pattern several years ago but I still love it. The beginning chain is the hardest part; after that it's all downhill!

Hey +Wil Wheaton, I just had to let you know that I finally got to watch #TheWilWheatonProject today and I laughed so hard that I snorted Coca-Cola into my sinuses. (It was the Dracula light bulb thing, in case you're keeping track.)

+Stacie Collier I highly recommend drinking your beverage of choice only during the commercials. :-)

+Snakehead Games need to read this. Then they need to read the beginning again. And then they need to explain how they think allowing people to buy their way out of bans for harassing female and LBGT players is in any way a good choice for their company or for their community.
 
Some in the games industry aren’t convinced. In March, an audience member at Wiseman and Burch’s developers talk posed a question that exemplified the very problem they’re trying to fix: Wouldn’t their suggestions essentially make Master Chief “into a girl”?

===

Last time I checked, we already have a female equivalent to Master Chief. Her name's Samus Aran, and she's been through shit Master Chief wouldn't believe.

#sexism #bullying #videogames  
Might the macho, unfeeling heroes of the most popular games be encouraging players' abusive, sexist, and racist behavior towards one another?

This was fascinating. And that the one male who can show emotion is black is also telling. And yes. You have a significant point.

I do this when my neighbors are being obnoxiously noisy. Götterdämmerung is especially good when they're obnoxious for hours on end.
I once pulled up to a red light alongside a sports car that was blasting something from 50-cent. When I looked over, the young man and I made eye contact. He turned the volume down a bit. I turned my own stereo to full volume, and a crescendo from “O Fortuna” filled the air.

Okay, fellow octophiles, it's #TentacleTuesday and +Monterey Bay Aquarium is having an awesome contest.

If you enter be sure to tag me (@MrOctoTweets) or share here so I can see your tentacly goodness! 

#MBATentacles (It would be awesome if octos could earn MBAs for real. They're plenty smarter than some MBAs I've worked for!)

It is being made abundantly clear to me that I must get my doctor to prescribe me an epi pen. The courtyard in front of work is absolutely packed with latex balloons.

+Lisa Cohen I wasn't 100% sure I could get the e-ink cover to photograph legibly, but I lucked out.

Dude, that sign says Priority Seating, not Jerk seating. This train car is three-quarters empty; go find your lazy ass another seat.

Well in that case (esp # 3!!), he's an ass. I once got up and ran half the length of a BART train to help a blind woman who got disoriented out the door. I couldn't believe that the people around here were just standing there. (That was pre-disability.) People are slightly better behaved on transit in Seattle, but worse about running pedestrians over with their cars, so...

What a great place to see a baseball game: the sight lines are excellent, the tickets are reasonable, and the baseball personalities are outstanding!
