Farmer’s Mkt haul: bananas, papaya, yogurt, tortillas, cheese, apples, broccolini, bread, ice cream, some dude’s number. #hiyoooo
Hopefully you didn't have to pay for that last item. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Just a smile and some pleasant conversation. :) - Derrick
I love the farmer's market! esp. that last item. :-) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Lord have mercy, I've become a pretty regular lurker, sometimes user on Reddit. I blame Rod.
Hah. I'm still mostly a lurker. It's pretty damn entertaining. - Rodfather
I have a whole bunch of multireddits set up now. - Rodfather
Here's one I copied and then added on to. I made it public for now. - Rodfather
Another for Nintendo related - Rodfather
I go there for a DC subreddit, one on Wii, another for 3DS, a couple on audio and vinyl, and a couple more on bands and music that I like and follow. - Derrick
I remember when I first tried to use it, everyone was so trollish. A lot of really techy folks talking about stuff way over my head and it was really hard to navigate to find stuff I was interested in. Some of the subreddits are still very high bro ratio, but things are pretty chill where I hang out. - Derrick
Any recs for sub-reddits? - YvonneM
/r/babyelephantgifs is my happy place - Glen Campbell
I follow really specific sub-reddits, so unless you like audio, records, stereo equipment or hi-fi's, probably not very compelling. I'm sure others will have more interesting ones. - Derrick
How's the DC one? My siblings and my cousins are sometimes on there, but I don't think I've looked at it beyond threads-in-the-"news" in years. - Katie
It's...DC. Little bit of everything in the area, different chatter about neighborhoods, the metro, the nats, etc. - Derrick
I recently found this. Amusing. - Rodfather from Android

$25 for a pint at a liquor store?!? Now, I know Eagle Rock has been gentrified, but I guess I've been living in denial about it being Downtown Hipsterville.
A pint of what? - Spidra Webster
Beer. Granted, it's craft beer, but still. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
That's like double the cost of a beer at a ball game. - Rodfather from Android
That's freakin' insane. Imported lambic is $10-13 for 750mL and I still don't buy it often because I guzzle lambic but sip wine. - Spidra Webster
I refuse to believe my stomping ground of Eagle Rock has turned into what Silverlake and Echo Park were at the time of my departure. - Derrick

How Privileged Are You? - Buzzfeed - Oh, Buzzfeed *shakes head sadly*
OK, to be fair, it did make me think about just how fluid sexuality is—like it's not just cis/trans or heterosexual/LGBT. You don't need to actual identify with a certain orientation to be called slurs. You can be shamed for sexual practices (or lack of sexual practices) that don't necessarily conform/are limited to categorical orientations. - Victor Ganata
I got 40, mostly based on gender or sexuality. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Buzzfeed says I'm not privileged at all, which I find pretty ridiculous. Of course I'm privileged. - Laura
I'm "quite privileged" apparently. Whatever that means. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
LOL at trying to throw shade at Buzzfeed. It's *Buzzfeed*. - Derrick
It says I am not privileged, but white male here. - Friar Will
Yeah, I know it's Buzzfeed but I still totally thought "Surely you can't be serious" when I saw someone had posted this on FB :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I hear what you're saying, Derrick, but I've heard Bullfeed mentioned as a Source of Serious Modern Journalism (along with HuffPuff), which makes me cringe. That test: ditto. (My score is, of course, in the vast "privileged" range, since that clearly starts somewhere at or below 50 out of 100--that is, I scored 50. Yes, I consider myself reasonably privileged.) - Walt Crawford
I wonder if they weigh all those questions equally. I think some forms of privilege are probably more significant than others. - John (bird whisperer)
I think the idea of quantifying privilege is prima facie ridiculous, but I guess we live in the age of the quantified self. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I found myself not sure of some of my answers. Sometimes I've felt uncomfortable about who I am, but I think that was me facing my privilege rather than not having it. My freshman year of college almost all my friends were Asian, so I was "the white girl" and left out of things, but I wouldn't say that was lack of privilege at all. - Heather, 30k Camper
I didn't bother because, well, I'm aware of whatever privilege I might have, but am also painfully aware of what that might look like when I'm in the elevator or people who look different from me pass up that open seat on the bus because...well, I'm sure it's not privilege. And also, I just really hate Buzzfeed. - Derrick
I'm increasingly with you (Derrick) on that last count, which is why I ignored this the first five times I saw it. - Walt Crawford
Turnt up.
I found this hard cider that's aged in bourbon casks? -hic- - Derrick
That maple-y, smoky, lingering taste is sublime. - Derrick
Oh you are speaking my language right there. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It's also like 7% abv too. #howyoudoin'? - Derrick
Oh. Which one? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
It's one of the Woodchuck varieties. A limited or reserve edition? - Derrick

"On a recent cloudless afternoon, a group of young comedy writers — one in Ray-Bans and a floppy wizard hat, another in skateboard sneakers and funky jeans — descended upon San Diego State University’s palm-tree-dotted campus, brandishing copies of their latest creation: a 12-page broadsheet of lewd humor. It was distribution day, or Distro, and staff members of The Koala, California’s most reviled student publication, had 8,000 copies to hand out. “Come and get it, you know you want it,” thundered Erik Luchsinger, a 21-year-old management major, in Hawaiian swim trunks, tank top and bow tie. “All the cool kids are reading it!” bellowed Taylor Etchart, a senior foods and nutrition major. “Guaranteed to be funnier than your textbook!” another staff writer shouted as students whizzed by on skateboards and bicycles. The cover featured an orgy of naked women with koala heads, clutching beer bottles, injecting illicit substances and vomiting. Inside was a list of “Top 5 Ways to Pick Up a... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Despite all this, The Koala seems to be flourishing. It has recouped its lost advertising dollars, and revenues are up by more than 100 percent from fall 2012 (the editorial staff is not paid). For the first time, staff members are trying to sell subscriptions to graduating seniors, to foster an alumni base, and there is a beefed-up online presence. Koala coffee cups, stickers and... more... - Jessie
"TO BETTER UNDERSTAND what’s so funny about The Koala, I joined the staff at one of its Sunday night meetings, in a cluttered one-bedroom apartment on the edge of the San Diego State campus. Sitting on a shag rug beneath a framed poster of the “Seinfeld” character Kramer, and between bites of guava cookies supplied by Mr. Luchsinger’s mother, students reviewed their last issue, which... more... - Jessie
"The Koala is not the only publication to mine edgy terrain. A subgroup of campus publications — The Quinnipiac Barnacle, The Medium at Rutgers and The Texas Travesty at the University of Texas, Austin — delight in routinely touching humor’s third rail. Take The Medium. Last year, it was criticized for likening a sorority with dwindling membership to a gaggle of farm animals. The motto:... more... - Jessie

Fasting blood sugar situation for my doctor's appointment this morning, but I should be done around 11am AND will be at Farragut. Any recommendations for food trucks, my friend?

Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit -
Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit
"It has become impossible to get any official merchandise from Disney's animated megahit Frozen—toys and clothing are sold out everywhere, even after a recent, large-scale restocking effort. Enterprising individuals are charging up to $1,000 for Frozen items on eBay, which has driven parents completely insane. Frustrated moms are currently freaking out all over Disney's Facebook page, posting angry messages in the middle of the night." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Currently, Disney has a rule set that no more than two of each Frozen item can be purchased at a time, in an effort to cut down on the scalping that is currently happening online. But the purchasing cap doesn't really help when there aren't any items to buy in stores, which leaves eBay and independent Amazon sellers left as the only options if you absolutely must get your hands on some... more... - Jessie
"Your best chance at getting some Frozen merch at its original retail price is at various stores at the actual Disney World Resort. But even that's dicey. It's mostly T-shirts and they don't seem to have the singing Elsa with the light-up hands that everyone is going bonkers for. Going to Disney World for a Frozen experience actually presents its own set of problems. Currently, the wait... more... - Jessie
Huh. I didn't think it was THAT good. Same w/the Let It Go song. When I finally heard it while watching the movie it didn't stand out to me as something that hype-worthy. - ronin
There's been so much EVERYTHING about Frozen, that all I can do is just kind of reject it until the hype dies down. No way it could live up to the expectation on the merit of it's high visibility right now. - Derrick
Dominic and I went to see it and we both thought it was cute, but that's about it. I liked it but I really don't understand the craziness over this movie. - Jessie
Yeah, I don't...I just...don't get it. I don't. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything more than decent either. And I sure as shit wouldn't scream at Disney about being unable to buy merchandise. Sometimes it's healthy for a kid to want something and *not* get it. - Hookuh Tinypants
Also, I'm a little o.O at people who give their kids stuff like this as "Easter gifts". Is this a thing? Is Easter like a second Christmas now? I'm seriously confused. I think we got colored eggs and candy and little plastic tchotchkes. And we were more than happy with that. - Jessie
Easter was always Christmas Part II at my house. ;) - Soup in a TARDIS

Given how many people put unlicensed Disney stuff up on DeviantArt and Etsy, I'd think the more adventurous ones would be trying to make $$ by filling the void right now. - Spidra Webster
They probably are, if they can manage to avoid the Disney copyright police. - Jessie
Admittedly I've never been much into "Official" merch, so this is far beyond my scope of understanding. But I really liked Frozen and I think it's different in a good way from what usually comes out of Disney. I can see how children would be drawn to the somewhat non-traditional main characters and parents would want to encourage that. - Heather, 30k Camper

I grew up in the 60's when television shows produced 39 new episodes per season, and some of them a second time during the "summer rerun" period. So I'm having some issues with turning on the t.v. in MARCH AND APRIL only to discover that they're running reruns until late April!
Someday soon we'll be treated to 6 weeks of new programming, followed by 39 weeks of reruns and reality shows. The remaining 7 weeks will be comprised of holiday specials, sports extravaganzas, and country music award specials. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I grew up in the 80s when TV shows were 24 - 30 new episodes and a 30 min. show had 24 min. of content. That mid-season gap and added commercials are why I don't watch American TV while it's on the air. - Anika
I am with you Anika. We only DVR and we call it power watching. - Janet
I remember when there were only ABC, CBS, and NBC. There are so many networks now, so many ways "TV" gets distributed, ie Netflix and Amazon Prime doing their own original content now as well. So much so that I get overwhelmed with all the available viewing options so that I just turn the TV off and listen to music instead. - Derrick
I'm doing that more and more, Derrick. There are two shows that I make a point of watching when I can get them. One of them is on PBS and, unfortunately, that signal has disappeared completely in the last couple of months. Either the transmitter is borked, or some new enterprise between here and the transmitter 30 miles away is generating enough interference to wipe out the signal. I... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I don't even watch broadcast TV, really. I have no idea what times and days shows even air because I always catch it later through network websites, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime and the like. And again, I'm really enjoying listening to music lately but will marathon a TV show should I have the time on weekends. - Derrick

Oh. I was just searching for "It's My Party" on Spotify and one of the results was a song called, "You're ripping my dick off and shoving it up my asshole!" by a band called Preschool Tea Party Massacre. To say I'm intrigued doesn't even quite express the sentiment ...

Working on a project at work and would love to hear feedback from other librarians handle their online and distance learning in conjunction with the library and librarians. Is there a specific online librarian? Subject/liaisons who work with their disciplines as they would f2f? Other ways, tools, and methods? TIA.
I am officially the Coordinator for Distance Learning. (Coordinator is local-speak for someone with responsibility but no authority.) I advise faculty and my library colleagues on using library materials in online classes, and help students get access and find alternatives to things they don't have access to. Always in conjunction with the subject librarian. I am happy to say that as my... more... - Rebecca Hedreen
We had a Distance Learning Librarian until about a year ago (person left, position has not been filled...yet?). When she was here she was responsible for outreach and planning of embedded librarian options for online courses. She did the majority of the embedded librarian work, but several of the other reference/instruction librarians also did embedded librarian work. Most of the online... more... - Freeda B.
It's interesting how many different methods and ways are being used for distance/online learning. My library science program was essentially a distance one with LSU in Baton Rouge and our cohort in New Orleans, but it was set up and run by LSU. At my new job, there are just a few programs that are up and running but they're being handled by a third party who specialize in establishing... more... - Derrick
Derrick, our SLIS librarian has been working hard to figure out how to support our distance program better, and I think she's been doing great. Email her if you like (look up "Anjali Bhasin" on to get her address) and tell her I sent you. - RepoRat
Grazie! - Derrick
We used to have a distance ed librarian - but in reality we provide the same set of servies to f2f people that we do to distance ed (except we *will* mail physical books to our DE students' home address, but not students who have f2f classes on campus) - now we all have all teh services in all our job descriptions - awd
We have a Distance Learning Librarian who is the coordinator/liaison to our Outreach School.

I was gonna be long-winded, but should cut to the chase and say I and my colleagues are available to talk if you want. Wyoming has been offering distance learning since 1891 and have had a DLL since 1999. We are RURAL and have lots of difficult weather and topography, so we've had to be creative. And as Aaron mentioned, we offer the same services to f2f and distance students with a couple of additional ILL services for distance folks. ACRL access entitlement principle is basically our bible. - kaijsa
We rejected the "distance learning librarian" from our position wishlist, stating that liaisons should cover their areas, and we as a library already embedded a lot of automagically customized stuff into Blackboard. I am on the fence about my agreement with the decision. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
