I will never take up knitting. Beyond that, there’s simply the usual PacNW early 30s experience.

There are seven people in tiffehr’s collective.

  1. On the Media - The Tragic Story of Phoebe Prince

    "In the wake of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince’s tragic suicide, the media narrative about her death was tragically familiar: she was bullied to death by mean girls and predatory boys. But the truth is much more complicated says Slate’s Emily Bazelon. Bazelon has investigated this story for months. She’s interviewed one of the students accused of bullying - the first time any of the alleged bullies has spoken with the media. Bazelon explains how the media misreported this story and why it matters. "

  2. Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin on WNYC

    "Yale University’s Timothy Snyder discusses the mass murders committed by the Nazi and Stalinist regimes, and looks at how both the German and the Soviet killing sites fell behind the iron curtain after World War II, leaving the history of mass killings there in darkness. In Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin, he looks at what happened under totalitarianism, when Stalin killed millions of his own citizens and Hitler murdered six million Jews, as well as nearly as many other Europeans."

    This is the best book I’ve read on WWII in years, from a reading habit of nearly 100 books. It’s a side of the war only glimpse.

  3. Substantial Sessions 03: Just Like Honey

    Tracklisting (via email, with commentary):

    01) Brandy & Monica - The Boy Is Mine (the first Darkchild production to hit big, IIRC…great instrumental. i like this ext’d version.) 02) Lucy Pearl - Dance Tonight (THE JAM!! i play an uptempo (Bmore club) remake by Top Billin’ any chance i get.) 03) Mary J - Real Love (classic. borderline ubiquitous, but Mary is the soul queen of our generation, so it gets a pass.) 04) SWV (i think) - Don’t Walk Away (good choice.) 05) Mariah - Honey (meh. puffy. meh. "Fantasy" with ODB is the proper choice. similar vibe. but i get it. good name for a mix) 06) Force MD’s - Love You Down (NO…it’s the INOJ remake…that makes sense, timeline-wise for this mix. Booty bass. Yeeeeeaaaahhhh!) 07) Ghost Town DJ’s - My Boo (same album as that INOJ track, i believe. "So So Def Bass Allstars". More booty bass. Uh huh.) 08) ?? - Freak It Like You Want It (not on my radar…probably played it once or twice when it was new. nice "deep cut" choice.) 09) TLC - baby baby baby (niiiice. not an obvious cut. good choice. i would totally get down to this mix in college.) 10) Mary. Freakin. J. - Sweet Thing (CHOON!!!! THE OTHER JAM on this mix. IMPECCABLE CHOICE. This makes the mix. Perfect.) 11) D’Angelo - Lady (PERFECT. PERFECT. PERFECT. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.)

  4. Could Gaming Be Good For You? : NPR Talk of the Nation

    What if games could help solve, rather than exacerbate, real-world problems? Jane McGonigal, author of the new book, Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World, thinks they can. She explains how games fulfill needs that reality doesn’t, and how to make real life more like a game.
