Believe it or not, you're hearing a trumpet and a male voice on this track:

That's the way I'm leaning. When things got really bad for me, Facebook was a top tier time waster.

I've been rediscovering a love of jazz lately, and picked up John Coltrane's My Favorite Things.

I usually have to take my time with Dickens, but this last one took months. I just couldn't seem to get into a good rhythm with it.

    I like the name, Dragon's Teeth. What's it about?

Historical fiction about the Bone Wars. It's a previously unpublished manuscript, so it's in need of some editing, but I'm digging it so far.

    And what's the biography of the Buddha called?

I thought maybe I was forgetting a subtitle or something, but the book's just called Buddha.

Finished Oliver Twist a little while ago after reading it off and on for the last few months. I enjoyed the book, but found it very slow going for some reason.

At the moment, I'm reading Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton and trying to get myself started on Karen Armstrong's biography of the historical Buddha.

I didn't realize the shark was CG. One less hour of my life to spend on TV, I guess.

The Strokes' "Last Nite" is the only song I've found that I sound decent singing. Once you've had enough to drink, the Julian Casablancas impression comes naturally.

A lot of the article seems to take the tone that we definitely know for sure this time, even though we thought we definitely knew for sure before.

I really haven't seen the spam that's got you so riled up. Care to share a few examples?

There's definitely a basis for criticising cultural appropriation in situations like what you're describing. I think the real problem with appropriation arises when ignorance comes into it. White people making burritos is fine, wearing a ceremonial Native American headdress to Coachella, simply because it looks cool, isn't.

Overwhelmingly, I get the impression that the definition of cultural appropriation is "cultural exchange that I don't like".

I found that first photo of the penguins very striking. It really gives you a sense of both the incredible beauty and the daunting conditions that Ballesta describes. Those penguins look so small and fragile.
