I spent last weekend with a few friends at the cabin making self bows out of various woods. We established early the first morning that there is a coffee-all-day policy. Coffee over hickory, coffee over yew,… all good, but coffee over osage in the middle of Nowhere, Montana was my favorite.
Davey D - Malcolm X- Remembering Our Black Shining Prince (Malcolm meets Fort Minor)
Heard this on the radio a couple nights ago and finally found it online. Mashup of Malcolm X speeches, Fort Minor’s Feel Like Home, on-the-street reactions to Malcolm’s death, and Ossie Davis’s eulogy for Malcolm. Really great.
For no practical purpose at all, I wanted to see if I could make a screwdriver into a car key.

Spittlebugs are pests, sucking the sap from garden plants and using it to make their protective, slimy froth. Eventually they grow into froghoppers. But while they are in their nymph form, if you gently scoop one out of its foam, you’ll find that it’s weirdly adorable and almost invisibly small.
