I share your sentiment. Saving a post doesn't necessarily mean I want to follow its comments, and vice versa. I think it would be better to have a separate "follow" function for posts and threads, but that could get quite cluttered. Ideally we should balance simplicity and ease of use with functionality, but I don't know precisely how.
Yes, seriously. I would not want to be a seismologist if it meant I was responsible for the earthquakes I study.
That's a pretty tall order! I am far from being very well versed in musical history, and my musical tastes are still rapidly developing, so I wouldn't feel confident giving anything close to a definitive list. But here are some albums I have consistently enjoyed over the last few years (despite changing tastes) and which still get heavy rotation from me today:
- "Dive Deep" by Morcheeba - "Resurrection" by Common - "People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm" by A Tribe Called Quest - "Blue Lines" by Massive Attack - "The Score" by Fugees
I really love music that feels textured, organic, warm, and a little rough around the edges. It may be that I'm just looking in the wrong places, but I find it difficult to find music like that lately. Lots of bands seem to be moving toward clean, smooth and cloudy sounds -- which I like, sometimes, but are outside of my comfort zone. If anyone has any recommendations for me -- old or new -- let me know! One recent release that I've really been enjoying is Wax Tailor's "Dusty Rainbow from the Dark," which drew me in immediately.
Ha, I didn't even realize the song was in a different language. I thought it was made up, too!
It's beautiful, isn't it? I don't know why they chose it, but I want to find more music like this.
I need to watch the whole series again to satiate my TV comedy fix until the next season of 30 Rock comes out. :)
Does anyone have any other recommendations? Preferably something that's available on the web?
My first impression is that it looks great -- very clean and modern -- but I'm no longer sure how to read my hub. My natural instinct is to read down the first column and then move to the next, but that requires me to scroll down and then back up which isn't optimal on my small screen. Reading from left to right feels weird, too, because the tiles aren't aligned. Either way, my eye moves around the page a lot and I'm not quite sure where the focus is.
I like the direction you're going; it just needs a few tweaks. If I were less tired I might offer some suggestions, but for now I should sleep.
Edit: As an aside, the "related posts" section of the page shows up under the comment box for me. Do you know how I can fix that? I'm on Chrome / OS X Lion.
People looked at her and saw a crazy homeless junkie with poor insurance. It's sad that she was never able to get the mental and physical help she needed. Still, it's hard for me to feel too angry at the doctors and officers involved. They gave her the standard treatment and unfortunately didn't find anything pressing, so they assumed the worse. Seeing thousands of similar cases in their line of work wore their compassion down to apathy and indifference which seem even more monstrous in retrospect. Fuck, this whole story has me conflicted. I don't know what to feel or who to blame. It's all so frustrating.
