Pitbull ft. Jennifer Lopez & Claudia Leitte: We Are One (Ole Ola)
Apparently there’s a big soccer contest happening in Brazil soon – that need not concern us, because what’s topping the news agenda right now is the question of what the World Cup’s unofficial anthem will be. “Ole Ola”, “La La La” or “Waka Waka”. I know, right – those aren’t even words! More on the battle between Pitbull and Shakira at SportsInteraction.
Great coffee table book. Close to 500 images of interesting and silly handmade items. I imagine this would be the kind of book to have when the internet is out for a long time.
Páramo’s book is a documentary, or nearly anonymous biography of many of thousands of immigrant field working women in the US. The struggles that come with being an undocumented worker are tough, much tougher than most suburbanites could imagine. This text has won many awards since it’s publishing, and continues to be an eye opener to those unaware of the inequalities experienced by those who do the work we’re unwilling to do.
A piece of fiction that follows the degradation of Lillie Claire Glidden’s capacity for words and memory, as her battle with Alzheimer’s continues. Amazingly, you can count the amount of characters in this book on nearly half of the fingers one one hand, yet 250 pages does not read as if its drawn out at all.
The Waking by Theodore Roethke
Not a surprise that the treadmill originated as a form of torture.
Sir William Cubitt developed a giant paddle wheel (think StairMaster) that turned by inmates climbing on the rungs and ground wheat or worked as a well pump. Eventually they were banned as cruel and unusual punishment.
The site tells more about this instrument of torture, but I can’t bear think about such an awful device.
I will not step foot on a treadmill. I hate walking in general, really.
There are wholesome, handmade items that can be purchased on Etsy, such as DIY soap products, scrapbooking supplies, handmade clothing, and other various trinkets people have created.
Then there are items that just make you wonder who is buying this stuff.

Reminds me of the Chuck Testa commercial.
Roscoe Bartlett was the Maryland Congressman that sounded very much like Chicken Little when speaking about impending doom from the sky during his 20-year tenure. While he adamantly attempted to pass bills to protect our fraile electrical grid and infrastructure from EMP explosions from terrorists, or those emitted from the sun, most of his peers chuckled at his alleged demagoguery.
During this time, Old Bartlett bought up some land in the foothills of West Virginia, and developed his own bug-out vacation cabin; five of them to be exact. (Very beautiful, at that!)
You can read about this quirky retired politician, his rationale for warning others about EMP infrastructure destruction, and the wonderful cabins he developed to sustain his family off of the grid at Politico.
