Impromptu Portland Sift Up (Sift Talk Post)

It was great to have the opportunity to meet the omnipotent overlord of us all (even those of us now in absentia). And yes, dag and James were drinking fruity beer from a truck, but they were drinking them with THEIR MINDS.

This photograph can also serve as a decade-by-decade survey of popular male pornstar facial hair styles for future generations.

I do love, love, love the AeroPress that I received last week. One shouldn't love a piece of durable plastic this much. Always loved his frisbee as well. The brilliance of the AeroPress design is in its capacity to self-clean.

If you are kettle boiling, listen for the hiss rather than the whistle. I found that water fully boiled in a kettle is far too hot. Or you can scare the family with a screaming kettle and wait about 4-5 minutes.

For easy and fun lattes (if children are involved in the foaming process), invest in a $2 IKEA milk foamer or something slightly more advanced (but cheap) if an IKEA is not nearby. Illy coffee is simply wonderful in the AeroPress.

Deranged Penguin Heads Toward Certain Death

the most wonderful thing about this clip is that herzog emphatically insists at the start of the film that he will not film anything involving penguins.

a penguin with that much determination shall not be deterred.

'even dwarfs started small' has still left scars on me.

And for future Islam invocations, gwaan's intent for the old collective was painfully clear:

"This collective is dedicated to celebrating the rich tapestry of Islamic culture - from the Moorish heritage of Andalusia to the Sufi traditions of China. It is a place for celebrating the languages, cultures, traditions, musics, and arts of all Islamic peoples. It hopes to show the other side of Islamic countries like Iran, Palestine, Syria, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia - the side rarely shown by Western media. It also aims to dispel the oft-repeated myth of a 'clash of civilizations' and expose those in politics and media who cultivate this myth in order to achieve certain political objectives. Finally, it is a place for discussing the key theological, social, and political issues which dominate the Islamic world: Palestine, Iraq, Chechnya, Kashmir, US foreign policy, British foreign policy, imperialism, democracy, sectarianism, 'terrorism', oil, the Islamic state, Islamic law - interpretation and legal authority, women's rights, minorities' rights, Islamic identity in the West, the public image of Islam, the future of Islam.

From time to time I'll post some important news stories from/concerning the Islamic world which will appear in the comments section of the collective."

I miss gwaan. I miss me.
