Lazy Reading for 2017/02/26

Another diverse link week, hooray!

Your unrelated item of the week: How Wegmans inspired the most rabid fanbase in the grocery world.  I live in the town where Wegmans started.  “Grocery fanbase” is a relative thing, but: yes, they are that good.

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/05

You weren’t planning to do anything else today, right?  Find some headphones.

Your unrelated link of the week: Bandcamp Daily.  Curated daily presentations about a band or type of music, where the enthusiasm for any given esoteric sonic whatsit oozes through the writing and samples are there to back it up.  Of course I would like it.  Recent highlights from just the past few days: a history of doom metal; Kid Koala’s new album, and whatever this is.

Merry Christmas!  I piled up as many links as I could in the theory that many readers have the spare time for it today/tomorrow/next few days.

Dig up more on James Burke (linked below) if you can, and if you have the time.  His Connections show was a delight.

A lot of this I picked up in previous weeks, knowing that the U.S Thanksgiving holiday was going to either dry up all links or give me a crapload.
