My wife just confessed that for her entire childhood she thought Colonel Sanders’ bow tie was his whole body and now I can’t stop seeing a tiny stick body every time I look at him

  1. I love that shadowbox. I’m not a woodworker, but I can imagine creating something similar with just cut paper and cardboard. A project for the 12 days of Christmas, perhaps?

  2. That bar essay is clever. I like it. I basically only go to bars as they function as live music venues and that jampacked noise bomb seems about the opposite of Orwell’s dreampub, but there are a couple of our small breweries here that I love just because of the “atmosphere” of their taprooms. They’re also family friendly which–though I don’t have children–I enjoy because it really does change the whole vibe for a place to be a family affair, rather than a rowdyhouse.
