Pele Tiki Mug - Back the Kickstarter!

I’m making a Pele Tiki Mug. Back the Kickstarter, won’t you?

I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Pele Tiki Mug for Kilauea Cove! Kilauea Cove is my home tiki bar with the erupting volcano, and Kilauea is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes. This original Limited Edition tiki mug features Pele emerging from the surface of a volcano, with large cracks where lava will show through. Here is a preview of…

SSL Certificates in Python 3.6

Note to self: After installing Python 3.6 on your Mac, run /Applications/Python 3.6/Install Certificates.command so your SLL connections don’t fail. Python 3.6 no longer links to the macOS-supplied SSL libraries and now includes its own copy of OpenSSL, but it doesn’t automatically install the root certificates needed to validate connections. It seems the Python 3.6 installer warns you about this…

It’s the 50th anniversary of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, and we could all use a reminder to be kind and to love one another. Here are 17 quotes from everyone’s favorite neighbor, Fred Rogers.

I feel like we could all use this today.

Yes, but the uncropped photo (by Chris Pizzello) of Lynch campaigning for Laura Dern to get an Oscar for Inland Empire is even better.

Without cheese there wouldn’t be an Inland Empire.

Well, so long as you’re going mushroom picking, you might as well dress up for it. And carry a trombone.

Buy it HERE.

No, for serious, you guys.  You need to find a copy of this book.  It is amazing.  My coworkers and I tell everybody about it.

Every picture in the book is like this.  They are all inexplicable, full of exactly the kind of people you expect to be in a book with this cover, wearing clothing that is either entirely inappropriate for mushrooming or exactly the clothes you wear mushrooming (which are eccentric), and doing strange and silly things with fungs.

It is amazing.

Probably it is also informative about mushrooms, as our local mushroomers do check it out a lot, but mostly the pictures are just great.

This book HAUNTS me. 

It showed up at my old used bookstore occasionally years ago and every time I saw it, it made me vaguely sick. “Who is this man? Why is he dressed like that? Does he know he looks like a fucking creepypasta? Why the trumpet?” 

And then my old used bookstore closed down, I worked at a new bookstore for four years and forgot about it. And then I moved to Portland, got a job at a very large, very well known used bookstore, cracked open a box and there was this fucker again like a goddamn cymbal monkey. And that old unease came rushing back. “Who are you, David Arora? What does the rain promise?  What did it promise you? And what did you give it?”

Even now, I’m in my apartment, my wife sleeping peacefully in the other room and I’m staring at this book cover like I’m the protagonist in a Lovecraft story, losing my goddamn mind and all I can think is that I have NEVER been more mystified by mushrooms.

The Website Obesity Crisis

Let me start by saying that beautiful websites come in all sizes and page weights. I love big websites packed with images. I love high-resolution video. I love sprawling Javascript experiments or well-designed web apps. This talk isn’t about any of those. via Pocket
