    edit: yep, after a rewatch, yeah, that is every bit as satisfying as i thought. do be careful if you have a problem with flashing images, though. this is an electricity experiment.

    I find watching these aquarium videos (specifically the betta tank and the 5 gallon nano tank) very satisfying. Tank gets crowded, tank gets neatened up, and there's shrimp and fish and such to watch. Also an occasional visitor like a ladybug, or a spider, or a cat. I don't know much about aquariums, but this person seems very knowledgeable and attentive to the health of the animals they have

    despite the slightly clickbaity title, it's actually about maintaining a really cool aquaterrarium.

    seebs' mom Yes, really!

    I heard an interview with Frank Zappa during which he recalled that as a teenager growing up in a musically isolated area, he requested, one year, that his present would be the price of a long distance phone call to one of his idols, Edgard Varese.

    I thought it was an interview with Studs Terkel on WFMT (Chicgo's classical music station, except for Saturday nights, when it does four hours of folk music [and other stuff]) but if so I can't find it. There is a Studs interview, and it does mentionVarese, but not the phone call
    https://studsterkel.wfmt.com/progra...others-invention-and-interviewing-frank-zappa
    (the archive doesn't include the songs played during the interview)
    but it's interesting anyway, and searching for <frank zappa edgard varese> has many more links which I am not following because I should be working.

    Seebs, didn't you have a cassette of Zappa when we lived in Shanghai? I remember Pink Floyd, and Weird Al.

    (video is about mythology, not suicide. odin comes out fine.)

    i love listening to this cowboy-looking professor reading and analyzing Old Norse while standing in some ridiculously picturesque place. he's got a really soothing voice and also that's the kind of nerd i am.

    Dolphins Are Finally Living and Breeding in the Potomac River Again
    About 1,000 bottlenose dolphins have been recorded in the lower reaches of the recovering river, including one that gave birth in August

    That little fin belongs to Gwendolyn Mink. Her mother is the namesake of Patsy Mink (researchers were naming dolphins after politicians, but they're running out of politicians)

    Crawford's also done one of the better and more accessible translations of the Poetic Edda. If you've ever wanted to read it I'd check out his translation.

    Also here is Story Archaeology. If you like Irish myth and want to know a lot more about it then I'd give these people a look. You'll learn more about the context of these stories and what they mean.
