kingsley flood wants your honey
er, I mean money. kingsley flood wants your money.
kingsley flood just launched a year-long campaign on pledgemusic so they can do whatever they want on your dime. luckily, the stuff they’ve been doing is pretty cool. you, the supporter, pledge some money and the band will send you stuff. the stuff has value because you are a supporter and maybe, even if you are not.
I do not think the trained bears in the video are being offered. but they eat a lot, so it’s unlikely you would want them.
I’m in. you should be, too.
does it matter where you go to school?
alums pay a price for colleges’ failure to educate, according to a follow up study from the authors of 2011’s academically adrift. that study claimed that many college students were graduating after four years in no better shape intellectually than they went in. two years later, these folks are just as clueless on why they can’t find/keep a job as they were on the sociology of the middle class back in the day.
I’m sure I’m just being an elitist, but I want to know more about the study and whether there were observable differences between institutional tiers. both the new study and its predecessor acknowledge that college grads make more and do better than non-grads, but pretty much shouts a caveat “but they don’t deserve it, the nimrods!”

2) later, I made a reference to sting as prattle purveyor.
3) and tonight, I came across a reference to jung as the _source_ of the word synchronicity

protip: don’t digest your linkedin groups
when great lizards ruled the earth, linkedin offered a sensible way to consume its groups feature. you could subscribe to an rss feed. one of the things we sacrificed for the ability to bear live young was the rss-ability of our groups. boo. standard practice became “the digest” - a single email for each group that consolidated the day’s activity under a non-sequitor-esque subject line.

begging the (beautiful) question. buckner in boston 2013
watching this gives the impression that richard spent his time at the mfa tune-bombing the collections. in fact, they had a whole auditorium for him and tour buddies califone. but it’s easy to imagine a sound as big as his filling the exhibit halls and spilling out into the streets. coming soon to a living room near you. no, really.
