Pavel Datsyuk's Slick Moves Put Detroit Up 1-0 Over Bruins

Just 30 seconds before this play, Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard watched Milan Lucic 's redirection of Jarome Iginla's shot/pass on goal harmlessly trickle through the crease. It was the Bruins best chance of the night and on the pendulum swing back, they were down 1-0. These things always seem to happen that way: a nearly-great play in one end for one team immediately turns into Pavel Datsyuk reaching his entire stick length behind him to feed himself a through-the-legs pass for the eventual game-winning wrister.


Let's use this energy productively.

 Things I want to get done:
Make my bed
corral dirty laundry
clean and straighten my area of the living room
fill med box
go on a bike ride
(which will involve cloroxing my bike and filling up the tires)
Finances stuff
Hang up clean laundry
Get rid of trash

All right. So I'm going to bite size these tasks--each round will be timed for 10 minutes of cleaning.

Anyone want to play along?

Fans of World War I drama may be interested in The Crimson Field, a British drama set in a hospital in France. It has Oona Chaplin (most recently the poor muffin who fell for Robb Stark in Game of Thrones but, apart from that tragic error, quite worth watching), Hermione Norris ( <3 <3 <3), Suranne Jones (who is every kind of magnificent also the TARDIS and the Bailey in Scott and Bailey) and Kerry Fox (generally splendid) so there's a good start. In episode one there was pretty much only antagonism between women which was disappointing in a show with so many. I'm hoping that will improve in the next couple of episodes. The first episode is about setting up all the dramas, I guess.

To my untrained eye the set, costumes etc look awesome and so far they seem to be trying to be true to the visual and emotional gruesomeness of a tent-based hospital of 100 years ago.

Odd but interesting

Hokkyoku Nigo is part of a small subset in Japan with a fetish for wearing outfits called “zentai” — an abbreviation of “zenshintaitsu”, which means “full body suit” — who say they are seeking liberation by effacing the physical self.

Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None really
Warnings: None really

Disclaimer: Don't own these characters, or anything else about the setting

Summary:Working in a coffee shop can be more than little insane, especially when you need to the money to make ends meet, you have problems standing up for yourself and your boss has an ongoing feud with one of the regular customers.

Really, the last thing you need is to actually start *liking* the customer in question.

All the things I know about obtaining the best possible sound quality using Garageband. Deals with popular question: "how do I eliminate background noise" (spoiler: the solution is probably not what you want to hear.) What are your feelings when it comes to sound quality?

Tutorial suitable for users running Garageband versions prior to Garageband X (came out with Mavericks) that has stripped out podcasts as a function. X's interface is completely different, sorry.

A remarkable piece on rape culture

As Foz Meadows writes:

In which the husband of rape and murder victim Jill Meagher reminds us, eloquently and with sharp compassion, that while his wife was killed by the archetypal monster, most women are attacked by men they know, and that privileging the monster myth helps obscure the reality of their abuse.
Not only is this one of the best and most necessary articles I’ve ever read in the subject, but that it was written by this man, of all men – someone making a conscious effort to interrogate the reasons why his wife’s death attracted so much public support, and to rebuke not only the underlying misogyny of everyday rape culture, but his own assumptions – the compassion exhibited by this piece is extraordinary.

An excerpt (full article here):

What would make this tragedy even more tragic would be if we were to separate what happened to Jill from cases of violence against women where the victim knew, had a sexual past with, talked to the perpetrator in a bar, or went home with him. It would be tragic if we did not recognise that Bayley’s previous crimes were against prostitutes, and that the social normalisation of violence against a woman of a certain profession and our inability to deal with or talk about these issues, socially and legally, resulted in untold horror for those victims, and led to the brutal murder of my wife.

We cannot separate these cases from one another because doing so allows us to ignore the fact that all these crimes have exactly the same cause – violent men, and the silence of non-violent men. We can only move past violence when we recognise how it is enabled, and by attributing it to the mental illness of a singular human being, we ignore its prevalence, it root causes, and the self-examination required to end the cycle. The paradox, of course is that in our current narrow framework of masculinity, self-examination is almost universally discouraged.

I would add: it’s not just men who are silent and prefer not to think about all this.

Summary Author: Carlos Dias

The photo composite above shows meteors showering an old windmill situated in the village of Outeiro, Leiria, Portugal. These are from the Geminid meteor shower, one of our most reliable, late-year meteor showers. According to the International Meteor Organization, 110 meteors per hour were recorded at the peak of the Geminids on December 13/14, 2013. However, only viewers in very dark locations could observe this many falling stars. My friend, Joao Almeida, and I counted approximately 70 meteors in the hours after midnight and before dawn on December 14, 2013.

Every year in early-mid December our planet crosses the orbital path of asteroid 3200 Phaethon. Debris from this mysterious body is vaporized as it bombards the Earth's upper atmosphere at speeds of over 80,700 mph (130,000 km/h). The resulting meteors seem to radiate from the constellation of Gemini. Note Orion at lower right. Sirius is the very bright star just to the right of the windmill. The Lyrids meteor shower peaks April 22. Look also for the Eta Aquarids on May 5-7.

Photo details: The photo is a combination of seven photos, taken between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on December 14, 2013. Camera Model: Canon EOS REBEL T2i; Software: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3 (Windows).
