REM Unplugged from Record Store Day on Vimeo.
I oarked just as the store opened, walked in just after the last person who had waited in line entered, and snagged the only copy of R.E.M. Unplugged that the store had.
I was back in my car and on the road again within three minutes.
So… my first and last Record Store Day was a rousing success!

MAKE has a story on How I Got My Job as a Lego Designer. If I had known that was a thing, I may have beat him to the punch… Gosh I loved playing with Lego as a kid.

How Americans Die.
It's a nice presentation. With some surprising information on suicide in particular.

I'm writing the gist of this in the future by a few days. I just had a conversation with someone I respected. He equated - because his religion compels him to - homosexuality with child molestation. He steadfastly believes that homosexuality is 100% choice, and is never biological. He's quite firm on that point.
I no longer consider this person someone with whom I wish to speak.
So given that background, I read Anil Dash's piece on being more tolerant, or less of a jerk, with interest.
