Brooklyn-based artist Ken Butler has been creating his imaginative instruments since 1978. Discarded, found objects become re-imagined through Ken’s vision: an ax becomes a 3/4 size violin, half a skateboard found in the street lives on as a guitar, an alligator skull sings as a two-string violin, old snowshoes make new tracks as a cello.

This story will warm you better than a coffee in a cold winter day:
"We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we're approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter -
'Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended'
They pay for their order, take the two and leave. I ask my friend:
'What are those 'suspended' coffees ?'
'Wait for it and you will see'
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four 'suspended'. While I still wonder what's the deal with those 'suspended' coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks
'Do you have a suspended coffee ?'
It's simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal."

Beginner (hiragana/katakana)  - 
 
I know this sort of thing has probably been brought up before, but I'm looking to refresh some really old skills. I used to be at I guess what I would call an advanced beginner level with Japanese (a few courses in school/college loosely assorted) and I would like to get going with some studies because I have a potential trip to Japan coming up next month, and I'd like to start working hard to refresh my memory. Maybe I missed a proper post on this, but is there a list of recommended resources? There are a lot of resources out there, and I'd like to know which ones you all would consider to be better and if you have the time, why. ありがとうございます

Right. I was looking through the beginner tab. I was thinking the "Reading/Listening" resources would be more just standard things to read and listen to.

Incidentally, #IfIHadGlass   I'd probably try to install Slackware on it.

Outrageous: Congress wants to take the law that prosecutors used against Aaron Swartz and make it even worse. https://eff.org/r.b7MX

Go here to tell Congress that we need to fix the CFAA, not make it worse: https://www.eff.org/aarons-law
