alternately titled: “if you are a female and I am not attracted to you, it is likely because your ancestors’ diet consisted more of grains than of meats, in an environment where sunlight was too dim to produce vitamin D in normally pigmented skin.”
She’s accepting pre-orders for $150, then she’s going to do a big run and deliver in May.
I do like this quilt…
John Hughes’ commentary: The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees…The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there and I think he fears that the more you look at him, the less you see—there isn’t anything there. That’s him.
If you haven’t watched this movie with Hughes’ commentary, you need to. It’s brilliant. And also all on YouTube.

Yes, every high mountain loch in western Montana looks like this. Yes, they’re formed by glacial run-off and cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra year-round. Yes, all you have to do is look where the fish are before you cast. Yes, Phil posted this because he knew I would reblog it. Yes, this picture reminds me of home. Yes, it’s pretty scary when you cross over the dropoff slope and clearly see schools of seven-foot-long carp and catfish, prehistoric sturgeon, gar and paddlefish circling under rootbaskets of full pines sunken twenty fathoms deep.
When you think of Chicago pizza, the image of the tall wall of crust containing a thick slab of molten cheese and the layer of sauce on top comes to mind. Deep dish/pan pizza is the Chicago-style pizza. But because of its sheer decadence by nature of the giant slices with ungodly amounts of cheese, deep dish remains an investment of time, money, and effort best saved for special occasions. Enter the Chicago thin crust pizza.
Differing from New York pizza in many ways (I won’t get into them now), one of the more interesting differences is the way Chicago thin crust is served. “Party cut” or “tavern cut” into squares, the thin crust pizza offers non-homogenous pieces (inside crustless, outside with crust, and tiny outside triangles). Perhaps a subtle tribute to the Cartesian grid of arterial streets in the city, the way the pizza for the masses in Chicago is cut is a tradition worth noting.
Holler. Fuck New York Pizza. I’m deathly serious about this. I will miss you Chicago thin crust.
leading into my favorite tommy tweet of all time, “I have a dream that all pizza will be one day judged not by its shape but by the composition of its ingredients.”
I know what I’m seeking out for lunch now.
I need to go home.
with all the talk about damage done to stadium employees and local businesses and even basketball fans, we’ve forgotten to consider what’s happening right now to Jay-Z’s social life.
legally speaking, the only people he’s allowed to hang out with for the foreseeable future are Kanye West and an increasingly pregnant Beyonce. it’s very possible this lockout could lead to either his darkest, or his most creatively-batshit album ever…
UC Davis police officer pepper sprays sitting students because, well, just because.
Think that’s %$#ing horrible? The video’s worse.

I’m sorry, this has gone too far. This has happened in police department after police department, and it has gone too far. Our police look like the goons in Russia and China. Please watch this video and send it to everyone you know. This has gone too far.
Oh hell, that’s deplorable. If this doesn’t spark outcry and lead to better discourse between the protesters and police we’re in for another round of Kent State/Jackson State atrocities.
upsetting for so many reasons, but I’m especially frustrated that this is all causing the conversation to change from “people vs. the 1%” to “people vs. the police”.
this was never supposed to be about the police, and the more it becomes about them, the more it feels entirely wasteful and utterly beside the point.
