    La Gran Tigrada of Chilapa, Guerrero

    Every 15th of August, children and adults keep alive a more than 500-year-old tradition of paying homage to Tepecyolotli, benefactor of agriculture and giver of rain, by dressing as jaguars.

    I hate large gatherings of people but this looks pretty great.

    Sarah Larson talks to David Rees about what led him to host his new TV show:

    “He started an artisanal pencil-sharpening business. When I saw him announce it on Facebook in 2010, I was excited. This was before parody menus of farm-to-table restaurants had come out, before it was a cliché to make jokes about Mason jars and pickle-making, and artisanal culture desperately needed to be mocked.”

    I could not enjoy Going Deep with David Rees more. Highest possible recommendation; I hope there are five hundred episodes. (Some are available for free on Hulu!)

    One of my favourite types of Tinder profiles - the thirteen year old boy who claims he’s in his late 20s/early 30s. He never modifies his pictures, he just thinks he can pull it off. I admire your confidence, Zack, but next time wait until AFTER you’ve gone through puberty. #tinder

    "So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."

    Marketers have figured out what we already knew about redheads

    Gingers might have it rough in real life — facing historical discrimination for their coloring — but at least the world of American advertising recognizes the enduring truth: Redheads are just sexier.

    According to a new media study published by the Huffington Post, redheads are disproportionately well-represented in primetime TV commercials. Despite the fact that natural redheads only make up a tiny percentage of the human population in the U.S. and worldwide, they make up nearly a third of the people onscreen who are trying to sell you something.

    speaking of how one relates to one’s own past

    here’s me & Peter last June at the Bottom of the Hill playing through the entirety of the first Mountain Goats tape in sequence, which was kind of a ridiculous thing to do and which I ended up enjoying rather a lot



  10. "To ascribe this entirely to contempt for black men is to miss an essential variable, though—a very real, American fear of them. They—we—are inexplicably seen as a millions-strong army of potential killers, capable and cold enough that any single one could be a threat to a trained police officer in a bulletproof vest. There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys."

    Some covers from Olive magazine in the mid 1980s, one of the first magazines to feature lolita style clothing, and one of the biggest influences on the early evolution of the fashion. The term “lolita” was coined around this time, but “Olive girl” was still more common.

    Olive girl is so much less creepy
