" I run a comedy website called The Oatmeal. Last year I wrote a blog post about another website called FunnyJunk which stole a bunch of my comics and hosted them on their website without giving me credit. They apparently didn’t like my blog post and recently FunnyJunk sent me a letter stating that unless I pay them $20,000 in damages they’re going to file a federal lawsuit against me.... more... - edythe

Aug 12, 2012: Andrew Bird at The Greek Theater - http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event...
Map
Amongst the other instruments he plays, singer/songwriter Andrew Bird is a concert-trained violinist who reveres the jazz masters, but does not imitate them. He explores various styles but will not noodle. Too modern to be classic, too classic to be modern, he produces a tight, early swing sound with saucy lyrics. His latest effort is 'Lonely Beast.' - edythe

The band would go on to release 'Under The Iron Sea' and 'Perfect Symmetry' and will soon release a new eight track album called 'Night Train.' - edythe

"Thanks to my shamefully pathetic memory, I quickly forgot all of what I saw on the Serious Eats list and promptly started my own. It took all of two minutes to compile. And I sat and thought, and thought and thought, and I felt pretty happy with what I came up with; I truly can rattle off my 13 top favorites quite quickly. After looking back at the Serious Eats list, there was only one style of cheese that I think I missed on the list, and that'd be some sort of bloomy-rinded, brie-style cheese. Whoops. Think of this as a sort of CliffsNotes, a starting point for where to begin if you want to learn more about cheese. It's what I'd consider my desert island cheese list, that is, the not-to-be-missed essentials. (Though a desert island with a whopping selection of 13 cheeses sounds like anything but a desperate situation.) And take the list with a grain of salt. It's my for-what-it's-worth compilation of favorites after seven years of working with cheese. They're some of the cheeses... more... - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet

*cries* I'm such a deprived child! :-P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
No Wensleydale? :-( (I've even got the accent sorted!) - Marina's Godmother :-)
Yeah, Wensleydale deserves to be on a list. - John (bird whisperer)
I like that Cotija is on the second link you included. It's good! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I don't think I've had that. - John (bird whisperer)
Cheeeeeeeeeeese - Soup in a TARDIS
Y'know, given the artisanal cheeses on the list, I coulda' guessed "this person lives on the East Coast" long before I got to the byline. - Walt Crawford
Maybe so since there are some from Vermont. They're all available by mail order, though. - John (bird whisperer)
I was thinking more the complete lack of anything from the western two-thirds of the US. Y'know, 'cuz California and Oregon don't produce any distinctive cheeses... - Walt Crawford
I don't care what kind it is, if it's cheese, I love it. - Mary Carmen
I particularly like the soft cheeses. :) - edythe from iPhone

Okay, FFers, I'm telling this social network first because I'm not ready to tell others yet. Anyway, due to many reasons, especially the fact that I'm stuck in my life and need to find a career path, I'm moving back to Norther VA at the end of July. I see it as a regrouping and it's temporary. This has been a hard decision, but it needed to happen.
Good luck on your move, Lis. - Anika
Yes, good luck! - Spidra Webster
It's taken me months to get to this point. I've lived here for 8 years. I survived a massive bipolar episode last year and got back to work. This is my decision. I can't keep living on stop-gap jobs. I'm 31 and need to figure out a plan and I can't financially do that here. I'm very conflicted about it and I've cried a lot. This is my home, where my friends are, where I've found a... more... - Lis
Good luck, Lis, and congratulations on making such a positive step. We'll still be right here :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Good luck with the move! I hope it gets you on a better path. - John (bird whisperer)

good luck Lis hope everythig works out in your favor. - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
The people in DC aren't so bad. - Alex Scrivener
All change can be overwhelming. It takes some of us longer to get to where we want to be but if you stop thinking about years in advance and just take care of yourself now, it'll work out. Hang in there! - Gabrielle
On the upside, you'll be closer to NYC, so you can take a bus or train in more frequently if there are shows you want to see or people you want to meet. - John (bird whisperer)
All the best, Lis. Come talk to us any time. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Just to clarify, I'll be moving in with my mom, which is a good thing as I miss her so, so much. I need her right now. - Lis
Best of luck with starting a new chapter in your life, Lis! I'm glad you'll be able to be with your mother. :) - Jenny from Android
