Sometimes, we don’t know whether to take things lightly or seriously. Or when to focus on our personal lives versus the surrounding world. It’s all pretty arbitrary, and we can endlessly rack our brains debating the margins. Alternately, we could kick back with our tall boys and jam along with the most esoteric Canadian former physics teacher to grace the 21st century lo-fi indie folk punk scene. But that overgeneralizes Chad Matheny’s appeal. Chad, who goes by Emperor X, writes songs so absurd that they must be authentic. So personal that they form a larger-than-life, immutable bond between us, Chad, and his tiny fandom. He loves cassette tapes, the black sheep of the audio playback family. So much that he buried 41 purple translucent cassettes in mostly unknown North American locations to accompany the release of his 2011 album “Western Teleport.” Chad drives home this novelty concept in the release, as it breathes with a cheap tape sound. Lo-fi music … [Read more...] about Emperor X is absurdly authentic

Dude, Where's My Car? Thanks to @severeweatherEU for the picture below! Crippling snow has been falling across parts of Europe over the last several days. Here's an image from Austria, where apparently marking cars with spray paint is good reminder of where you parked... ___________________________________________________________________________ "The U.S Government Shutdown Is Now Affecting the Accuracy of Your Weather Forecast" "The partial government shutdown in the U.S. is nearing the three-week mark. National museums are closed, trash is overflowing at understaffed national parks, and airport security is at stake with TSA screeners calling in sick over their pay. Yet there’s another, more niche but critical area that’s also affected by the shutdown: weather forecasting. While the National Weather Service is technically considered essential and therefore shouldn’t be affected by the shutdown, that doesn’t paint a complete … [Read more...] about New Minnesota State Precipitation Record in 2018

Feature A decade ago, the U.S. mandated the use of vegetable oil in biofuels, leading to industrial-scale deforestation — and a huge spike in carbon emissions. The remains of an Indonesian rain forest that was cleared to make way for oil palms. Credit Credit Ashley Gilbertson/VII, for The New York Times Supported by ByAbrahm Lustgarten Nov. 20, 2018 This article is a partnership between ProPublica, where Abrahm Lustgarten is a senior reporter, and The New York Times Magazine. The fields outside Kotawaringin village in Central Kalimantan, on the island of Borneo, looked as if they had just been cleared by armies. None of the old growth remained — only charred stumps poking up from murky, dark pools of water. In places, smoke still curled from land that days ago … [Read more...] about Palm Oil Was Supposed to Help Save the Planet. Instead It Unleashed a Catastrophe.
Fall is officially here and we've already had snow. If you're not yet done with your fall maintenance list, get on it. We post this same fall maintenance list every year, and we modify it just a bit every year with new and updated information. This year, I created three new video clips to accompany the list. Water Disconnect any garden hoses. If they're left attached, even to a frost-free faucet, you have the potential for a burst pipe. Drain the water out of your faucets. See How to Prevent Your Outside Faucets from Freezing. Remove any pond pumps and store the pump in your basement in a 5-gallon bucket filled with water. This will help to prevent the seals from drying out. If you have a utility sink in your garage, drain the water out of the pipes and dump some RV anti-freeze into the drain. If you have a lawn sprinkler system (aka "irrigation system") it needs to be drained and blown out with compressed air. Hire a pro to do this. Side note: If you hire a … [Read more...] about Fall maintenance checklist for Minnesota homeowners
