I recommend not missing these again (all links = self-referential). Some things from the past. For the future.
*James Hetfield responds to rumors of his detention at an airport in England for wearing a suspicious talibeard.
*The Cyclical Blog.
*On Benjamin Franklin’s “cold-air baths.”
*Soulja Boy (Tell ‘Em) “Crank That” instructions.
*Swiss firefighter rap: 118 Projec’t.
*Notes on the Juno soundtrack. (For some reason, one of the most oft-searched posts of the year.)
*And happy new year. And thank you.
