I was Jebidiah Atkinson in a past life.
DiGiorno Pizza live tweeting The Sound of Music is one of my favorite things. Ever.
This was shot by my mom, and features my dad and Bernie, our dearly departed mutt. She loved playing fetch, even in the snow.
Her nickname, “The Queen of All Dogs,” was a bit of a family joke, but she wore the title well. She was the best. It’s been almost two years, but I still miss her.
Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”
Then watch them crash and burn
Thanksgiving, just as Norman Rockwell and Lorne Michaels intended.
The bromance will always live on.
Happiness cannot come from a thing.
I wrote a piece about cake and death. No, really, I did. There’s also a recipe!
This is part of an academic blog about food rituals in mourning, funerals, and grief called Nourishing Death. Interesting stuff (and not just because of my cake and death article.)
I developed a new roll of lomo pictures, featuring photos from my ActionSampler camera!
One of my favorite things about film photography is the surprise of development. You forget what’s on the roll. I took this photo in February 2012 (I can tell because of the photo location.) I’d completely forgotten about it until now.
Most polls find that a little more than 50 percent of Americans believe in ghosts:
"That’s fascinating, because most Americans tend to believe in science. And even those who might not believe in certain aspects of science — say, evolution or whatnot — tend to be influenced by their religious teachings. Well, here’s a case … where most Americans believe something that both their science and their religious leaders tell them not to believe."
Many a ghost story has appeared on the NPR airwaves. We’ve collected some of the best — from a 1989 All Things Considered broadcast, to a 2013 Fresh Air interview with Stephen King. You can listen to all of them here. Happy Halloween!
