this next trick is a little something i like to call “bulking out my bibliography with articles I barely looked at”

“Works Sighted”

I’d like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer’s success helps build a larger readership for all of us.

Wow, I wish more people got this.

you know the game “germany or florida”? where you read a weird news story and try to figure out where it’s from?

i feel like we could make “sf or brooklyn” except with hipster nonsense

"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

This man was a pure genius.

The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.

How do you rhyme in a sign language?

This video from Awti, an ASL storyteller, demonstrates how you could create rhymes using signs. According to his website, he’s hearing and was raised in a deaf family, so I’d think he’d have a pretty informed perspective on this question. 

I went into more detail about rhyme and rhythm in ASL on Lexicon Valley, including videos of an ASL interpreter rap battle as well as an example of a finger fumbler (the sign language equivalent of a tongue twister). And judging from the comments on the video, it looks like this may end up inspiring some people to create poetry or songs directly in ASL, without translation, which would be great.  

This was really interesting! (And I’m really proud of how much of this I almost followed, using the captions and my limited ASL.)
