1) We had a strange weather burst two days ago. The forecast had said possibility of some evening showers but clearly no bad weather was expected because when we turned on the weather radio they were saying skies were clear. Read more... )

2) NPR's 1A had an interesting chat about diversity and Disney productions, as well as the influence of media on kids.

3) I rather liked this discussion about the gendered history of pockets, although I notice it didn't mention the more recent push to get men out of cargo shorts into something more streamlined. This seems to me to strike at the heart of the issue which is that pressure about appearance has always been heaviest on women and this usually results in extreme, and often dangerous, impracticality when it comes to clothes.

"An 1899 New York Times piece makes the somewhat tongue-in-cheek claim that civilization itself is founded on pockets. "As we become more civilized, we need more pockets," the piece says, "No pocketless people has ever been great since pockets were invented, and the female sex cannot rival us while it is pocketless.""

4) HT to Petzi for pointing to the Television Critic's Awards nominees. I think these are frequently a much better list of nominees than the Emmys. That said, I thought a few choices were pretty odd. Read more... )

5) I posted about blockchains a few days ago and saw this discussion about a new project employing them as a new journalism model.

So I'm finding interesting features in my posts that had been converted from LJ to DW. Ones with embedded youtube vids don't show the vids but have been duplicated with links to the vids. I'm obviously deleting the posts without the vids - only error messages - but those are the posts that the comments stayed with.

Okay, no. I just got smart. I'm copying the link version to the error with embedded videos version. So I'll have both links and comments.

Hmm, it's not just posts with errors that have been duplicated. I just found two posts for the same poem. Odd. Aaargh, and some with embedded link errors that aren't duplicated so I don't know where the originals came from. Grr.

I went looking because I thought I had seen some embedded vids in posts but it was the wrong vid for the post.

Huh, but the correct icon is with the original post. The copy gets the correct icon; the original gets my default icon.

1) I forgot to write anything about Arrival, largely due to the fact that it was dubbed a "short wait" for over a month on Netflix and then arrived just before I was leaving on vacation. Read more... )

2) I also just watched La-La Land. Read more... )

3) I hadn't even heard of blockchains before these articles but am fascinated by the implications.

"Blockchain technology has been hailed by its VC supporters as having revolutionary promise for all involved. “You should be taking this technology as seriously as you should have been taking the development of the Internet in the early 1990’s. It’s analogous to email for money." Read more... )

4) When this article stated "Most fanfic services don’t allow porn, hate speech, or revealing personal information about living people" I assumed it was talking about FFN. Yet it's never mentioned in the article even though Wattpad is, and only one site listed serves those under 13 (which is basically the minimum age for account holders across platforms, at least in the U.S.)

5) Speaking of kids, I thought this image was adorable and it took me a bit before I realized the little girl was holding the book in question. Bet it made the bride's day!

Stephen Furst has passed away, due to complications from diabetes. He was 63.

From his offical Facebook page:

"To truly honor him, do not cry for the loss of Stephen Furst. But rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now. [...] And no matter who you are, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh - really, really hard."
