*Downsizing: If I didn’t mention this before, Buzznet – publisher of Stereogum, Idolator, and Absolute Punk – cut 13% of their staff.
*Lists: Fimoculous’s annual, year-end list of lists is starting.
*Beer: The New Yorker does a profile of Dogfish breweries and outlines the possibilities of extreme beer. Beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer. Oh, I should also note that we wrote about BEERSHAKES for my day job a while back.
*Drinking: A co-worker directs me to this fantastical flickr photo set of people trying a drink called Jeppson’s Malort for the first time. Almost as good as those 2 Girls, 1 Cup reaction videos. And significantly less off-putting. The drink is apparently favored by one JOHN HODGMAN. (The drink in question being, of course, Jeppson’s Malort.) Ick. [charlotte]
*The circle of life: As soon as my new anonymous Twitter self (see this twittercide thingy for an explanation) gains 100 followers, I will out him. And we can begin this circle of life all over again. Shanti.
