The Cake Factory

Happened across this video via MetaFilter, and it’s the kind of thing that reminds me why the Internet exists. It’s a one hour and thirteen minute long, wordless video that tours a commercial Korean cake factory.

Cleaning, Outside and In

One thought I had, while working outside clearing snow: there are a few ways to look at the world. Through an adult’s eyes, the snow is a chore, a task that blocks the ability to do other things. Through a child’s eyes, the snow is a wonder, a marvel of nature, the elements rearranged in a way we infrequently see.

Even as I was feeling tired and sore, I tried to look at the snow with a sense of wonderment. Because it really was a fantastic sight to behold.

Elmer’s Glue Prank

I happened across this video, and I have to tell you… I was crying laughing. Crying actual tears, unable to do anything other than laugh and gather myself.

Old Newel Posts

We’re on the lookout for new newel posts. And in the meanwhile, we’re looking to get rid of these. I’m sure someone would take them for free, but I’m also thinking we could get some small bit of money for them.

Back to AT&T

I used to be an AT&T customer nearly a decade ago, and was with them for a very long time. Feels odd to be back, and doubly so to compare the speeds I’m getting now versus then.

Dividers

I’ve seen this before, but never quite so clearly. I guess we can really see which parts of the backyard get sun and which gets shade.

Crokinole

The game play looks amazing and incredibly satisfying to play. The only downside seems to just be the enormous size of the board, and the enormous price tag.

Frank Watkins: I Will Follow You Into the Dark

I have this tendency, whenever I find a new song I like a lot… I’ll eventually turn to YouTube, to see about listening to a live version of the song. Invariably, there are videos from other people doing covers of the song – and I go down a bit of a rabbit hole.
