Lazy Reading for 2017/03/19

Technical details week for Lazy Reading.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: Haha, one of the world’s best tea houses is in my town.  It’s Leaf Tea Bar, and Niraj is one of the nicest guys.  His prices are reasonable for the quality of the tea, too.

I had overflow from last week, so I have a good list for you, despite being offline for days.

Your unrelated tea link of the day: defining what it means when you read “mug of tea” vs “cup of tea”.  You’d think it was interchangeable, but the meanings diverge.  (PDF, via)

A little meta, this week.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: In Sri Lanka’s Tea Paradise, A Social Enterprise Is Brewing.  I actually heard about the quality of the tea (very good) before I heard about the way the company was formed.  Consider where your next tea purchase comes from, in light of this.

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.

It’s Lazy Reading Science week!

Your unrelated link of the day: Assault Trombone.  Even if this was lethal, I couldn’t take it seriously.  (via)

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.

Lazy Reading for 2017/01/29

Not as many reading links as usual this week, but lots of BSD news yesterday.  It ebbs and it flows.

Your unrelated comic of the week: “Your comment here“.  Also “presentation“.

“Old consumer computers” is this week’s accidental theme.

Your unrelated video of the week: Turbo Encabulator.  There’s more like that out there, like the Rockwell Retro Encabulator.

I hope you have lots of time to read today.

I almost scheduled this for 2016/01/01.

Lazy Reading for 2016/12/25

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.

Your unrelated game link of the week: Lode Runner.  The whole thing in HTML5 as far as I can tell.  (via)

Your unrelated video of the week: AAAAAAAAAAAA

The post-holiday rush of links has slowed.

 

 

Lazy Reading for 2016/12/04

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

Lazy Reading for 2016/11/27

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.

Your unrelated link of the week: The Secret World of Stuff.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2016/11/20

It took me three edits of this post to spell “Salvador” correctly.

Your unrelated food link of the week: Salvador Dali wrote a cookbook.  (It’s getting reprinted.)

Lazy Reading for 2016/11/13

Some of this is overflow from last week.

 

Lazy Reading for 2016/11/06

There’s got to be something surprising and/or useful for you in this week’s links; they are gloriously eclectic.

Your unrelated browser game of the week: Epitaph.  (via)
