Happy Thanksgiving Eve, guys!
I'd never know current pop music, nor that all I ever wanted were apparently straight guys totally committing to the lip sync. It's like boom.
This week's Photo Friday Theme will be: Photos from the last trip you took, suggested by TheDonF

Ŕ propos of nothing Share some tidbit that you find interesting.
Holidays ads and they've only just begun. JCPenney has an ad, to the tune of falalalala, Go Go Go Go Go Shop Shop Shop Shop, with people rushing madly, and KMart has one with people 'gif-ing' out over their shopping, and a car full to the brim with stuff. They exemplify everything I hate about advertizing - pushing mindless consumerism, Christmas ads on before Thanksgiving. It's really depressing. Off with the tv!

I spent my last Thursday in North Carolina listening to Moon Hooch and Mike Doughty (finally making peace with his Soul Coughing songs) at Cat's Cradle
. As for Moon Hooch, the best description I can come up with is "live sax riffs plus contrabass clarinet dubstep." →Read more...

In more depressing professional news
The script for Welcome To Night Vale me and Tim worked on back in June was formally rejected recently, so I put the damn thing online

Wow. Libraries have come a long way. The wife and I went to the Alafaya Library today. It's part of the Orange County library system. The wife got a library card so that she could get a book. If you really must know it was one of those Outlander books.
But it seems that the Orange county libraries have a whole crapload of other things that you can do. Including having library books delivered to your door. And watching movies via their streaming service. Now I always knew that librarians were so very cool. But our local library is the best in the damn country!
[self-link] Can you like one of my final projects?
Hey gang! For one of my classes, I'm experimenting with spirituality on social media. My problem is that I need 30 likes before I get "insights" from Facebook. If you'd "like" it and be a beta tester for me, I would greatly appreciate it [warning: it will be Jesus-y].

AskMeCha: How to add text below a photo? "I should know this but I don't" filter. I want to add a box containing text *below* a photo. All the caption tools I'm finding online are for putting captions *on* the photo itself. How would I go about creating the effect I want?

scientific mechazens I've been wondering. Are the reason things like burning wood or petrochemical products dangerous to us, or affect our hormones, etc. precisely because they're organic? Like, by nature, is a plastic bag going to react with us more readily than say a piece of glass?

The Eve Arden Show
This is about Wes Anderson
but is also just some pheeee-nomenal film/cultural criticism. Have been lost in this world for over an hour, watching these sequentially. Some of you folks might really enjoy this.
