Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Oct 3 bookworm commented on It Is Clear That Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks Should Rap More.
You really brought me back with this, David. And I'm still not sure how I feel about that. I feel so uncomfortable about having remembered a few of the lyrics to this, likely 26-27 years after having seen this video.
Sep 19 bookworm commented on How Not to Lose Your Virginity.
Great piece, Cienna, actually one of the most useful ones of these "Back to School" things ever written. I hope its Internet reach goes beyond Slog.

And great clarification above, @10 about the derailing.

I usually don't listen to stuff like this, but this was incredibly informative and entertaining. Thanks.
Aug 27 bookworm commented on Can Haruki Murakami Learn New Tricks?.
I totally agree with this review. I've been a Murakami fan for about 20 years, and was really disappointed by 1Q84. I've described the last 100 pages as feeling like he's just treading water. It deflates what would have been a relatively good ending.

But the new book is compelling and engaging; I'm in the middle of reading it, and my excitement about it reminds me of how I felt when I first started reading Murakami.

Make it a sandwich full of laxatives and broken glass.
Jun 2 bookworm commented on It's Time to Turn Your Back on Amazon.
Just FYI: Amazon also owns Goodreads, Abebooks (a used bookseller) and Comixology (digital comics portal). So if you're not into supporting Amazon.com, but still supporting these, you might want to consider other avenues.
Apr 16 bookworm commented on Reform in Reverse.
As someone who's lived in Seattle for 15 years and seen how corrupt and uncaccountable SPD has been over all that time (and coming to understand SPOG's role in fighting any efforts at reform), I'm glad to see this all laid out so plainly, and identifying the need to address not just SPD in general, but SPOG's contract specifically (past contracts have frequently been used to block reforms and changes). I generally liked McGinn, but was incredibly disappointed with how he handled SPD reform. And now having seen how Murray has handled this over the last few months, I'd say that he's on track to do as much -- if not more -- damage, if he and other city officials don't heed the proposals in this article. Pugel was someone taking us in the right direction, while Bailey most certainly is not. And SPOG needs to be reined in. I support labor unions wholeheartedly, but I think negotiations have to recognize that policing is categorically different that many other forms of public service, and so SPD needs to have some level of community accountability that can't be circumvented in the ways it historically has been.

But without Hooky, it just doesn't seem like New Order.

@9 - I saw that tour as well. First time seeing all those bands. It was at an outdoor theater-place in Philly, and my friends and I had Gen Admission lawn seats, but snuck down towards the front. We stayed there during Sugarcubes and PiL, but then the true seatholders arrived for New Order, and we got booted over to the side (still great view). Sugarcubes and New Order were great, but that was right around the time PiL really started getting boring (to me, at least). Still glad to see them all, though.
Feb 14 bookworm commented on Facebook Debuts New Gender Terms and Pronouns.
This is great, though likely at least partially to gain some "market share" with queer folks who identify in a lot of different ways.

But I also notice that they only have "Women" and "Men" for "Interested In" menu. Then again, who really uses that option?
