good Hanukkah gift: a pug

Oh man, if there was a live pug puppy feed, i think i'd drop out of school. Conflicting interests. Not that the original puppy feed isn't good enough. It's just that you can't beat pugs. Pugs are like the moonstones of the gem world. Okay, what i'm trying to say is: pug, please! For Hanukkah! Then i can spend the rest of the winter break knitting it cute sweaters to wear! Please go look at some photos of this "chien depressif" for a template of which pug to buy me.

some amazing vinyl album cover photos here.

the f word (not feminism)

Dear Professor:
I'm submitting this references list, APA-style. I hope that by reading through all these works, you can come to a relatively accurate conclusion of what my essay would have been about, had i written it. I've left out works which i read but ultimately deemed irrelevant to my hypothetical thesis.
See you in class for the exam!

I dare you not to fall in love with this story about Mayo Thompson. And i dare you not to fall in love with Sean Michaels by extension.

crossed fingers

This is Towelbama, made by more than milk and some friends. It makes me think about some interesting things, like "the personal is political" and politics within domesticity. Whoops, essay mode. But that aside, what a funny idea for a towel! It's sold out on Etsy, so i hope that's some kind of good sign. One hour, guys.

Oh, and check it out on a stove.
