Today's Mighty Oak

Alright, we’re halfway through NaNoWriMo, so a quick break for me to write here.

Comparing a decade of music with DJ Earworm:

Here’s my thought. Michael Bloomberg is going to enter the race just so he can more easily spend money on campaign ads or get around Facebook ad guidelines or something, but he’ll use his fortune to support whoever the Dem candidate is. But who knows if I’ll be right.

I’ve seen this done before with bagpipes, and I love that this trend continues, this time with saxophones!

The trailer for the Star Wars IX:

USA Hockey is adding an indefinite suspension penalty for players using racist or homophobic language.

Trojan is running an awesome campaign about comprehensive sex ed and combating slut-shaming of all forms.

And finally, the trailer for the new season of The Crown:

Couple quick things for everyone, more coming later.

This looks amazing, and I kind of want to do it:

Rachel Maddow has a great post about what to do with the empty House chamber, since you know, they aren’t doing much.

If you’ve read Blink (I need to) or Tipping Point (I have), check out the Malcolm Gladwell book generator.

Check out this awesome map of good beer.  Also, poor Idaho!

And finally, my buddy Ken sent this to me, one of these days, I’ll finish Infinite Jest (after starting it probably 20 or so times).  It’s really my white whale.
