Hannibal Buress on Letterman

This is popping up on a lot of comedians’ Tumblr blogs.  There’s a consensus that Buress nailed it.

Just love this guy.  First saw him on Louie and really fell for how his understated delivery and slight mumble lulled you into the perfect mindset for a killer punchline.

I hope he blows up after this.

Aaron Merritt’s Year In Review

I’ve mentioned Aaron in this space before, but that was a furtively self-serving moment wasn’t it?  Today’s post isn’t about me.  As Aaron explains, it’s…

For me specifically.

But then, teachers in general.

But- also- everbody.

This post isn’t like the others, but then, neither is Aaron.

Enough of this.  LESS WORDS, MORE PICTURES.

Jimi Trout’s Top 10 Yarn Tastings of 2010

Submitted by: Coraghessan A. Cat

1. STITCHES South Knitting Expo Yarn Tasting
Atlanta, Georgia; www.knittinguniverse.com/stitches/south/
Easily the highlight of the 2010 yarn tasting season.  This year’s 50g
skeins were divine, featuring subtle hints of nepeta and lemon.
Breathtaking.

2. The National Needlehearts Association Yarn Tasting
Zanesville, Ohio; www.TNNA.org
Outstanding selection of double-knits; impeccably crafted, remarkably
complex, simply stunning.

3. Interweave Yarn Tasting
Loveland, Colorado; www.interweavestore.com/
The hippest yarn tasting of the year, every bit as good as your
friends said it was.

4. Lion Brand Yarn Company Yarn Tasting
New York, New York; www.lionbrand.com/
Dazzling array of medium-bodied skeins, presented in typical regal fashion.

5. Red Heart Yarns Yarn Tasting
Charlotte, North Carolina; www.redheart.com/
Red Heart Yarns = Red Hot Flavors, particularly in the 25g class.

6. Knit ‘N Style Magazine Yarn Tasting
Stanhope, New Jersey; www.knitnstyle.com/
Charming venue, crowd-pleasing yarns, always a good time.

7. Craft Yarn Council Yarn Tasting
Gastonia, North Carolina; www.craftyarncouncil.com/
Highlighted by a lively panel discussion on Fair Trade fibers.

8. Naturally Caron Yarn Tasting
Washington, North Carolina; www.naturallycaron.com/
Solid, if unspectacular, entry into the yarn-tasting circuit.

9. Crochet Today Magazine Yarn Tasting
New York, New York; www.crochettoday.com/
A mild disappointment given the amount of hype, but still worth the
price of admission.

10. Vogue Knitting Yarn Tasting
New York, New York; www.vogueknitting.com/
Unfortunately not the yarn-tasting trendsetters they used to be;
slightly more fun than a nap.

Jimi runs (ran?) Trout Mask Replica.  Miss you Troutie.

Universal Coffee Gripper

Coffee grinds, a bag, and a vacuum.

Feeling increasingly worried about the inevitable war between man and machine.

Michael Caine Impression-Off

Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan are two silly blokes (can I say blokes?) who have a show on BBC Two where they visit six picturesque British restaurants and proceed to act like asses.

The Ray Winstone quote is, again, spot on.
