Two storifies, two podcasts for Wednesday
I know, there has not been bloggening in forever. July has been and will continue to be totally crazypants as far as scheduling goes. But here, I have some stuff for you! Storifies: During my one long break at DetCon1, I went to the Detroit Institute of the Arts. I only had a bit over three ...

A thing so precious I just have to share it. 9

A thing so precious I just have to share it.
THIS IS SO HILARIOUSLY PRECIOUS THAT I CANNOT HELP BUT SHARE IT. Like a video of a kitten angrily batting at an enormous piece of exercise equipment, but with 300% more fedora. (By the way?
