The Obamas are the first First Couple young enough that they grew up with Sesame Street. Our President geeks out over Elmo, you guys.
(Also, he is never gonna give you up.)
BriWi has a music series. It’s called BriTunes. His message on the intro page, rather wisely, says “I didn’t name this thing.”
Iran protests, then and now: a three-decade gap, two photos, one bridge.
A few examples of how racial bias is a factor even in situations like “colorblind” application processes.
An artist turns a skin disorder (her skin immediately puffs up whenever it gets scratched) into really cool photographs.
Somebody needs to get Jon Stewart this tie.
Thoughts on creating a fandom will. It’s a good idea. (I will probably never get around to it, but it’s still a good idea.)
And, to end on a shiny note: Jai always makes the most gorgeous icons.
