Even if it’s not one of the “most notable” podcasts, The Neighborhood Listen was a delight this year. Granted, I could listen to Paul F. Tompkins and Nicole Parker reading a phonebook, but it’s still a treat.

I would like to note that Han did not shoot “first”.  He’s the only one that shot at all.

I saw this on reddit yesterday, looks like it missed this article. Apparently Bethesda forgot to secure the Fallout First domain name. A very unhappy fan reasonable person scooped it up and, well, it’s a REAL GOOD READ. Read more

In the end the Lakers Front Office would announce that July came before January, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly Read more

Read A Paradise Built in Hell. People don’t turn into psychopath loners during a disaster. The structures of our fucked up society keep us apart and alienate us and make us selfish out of fear of precarity, but the second it becomes clear that the tornado or hurricane or earthquake or forest fire has cut us off from Read more
