There was an attempt at making honeyed stove popcorn today.
Needless to say, it was a failure.

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

Municipalities are selling their water to companies like Coca-Cola at rock-bottom prices. And then when towns run out of water, what happens? Dasani sells people their own water back for a huge profit. When there’s no water in the tap, residents will have no choice but to pay for bottled water at a huge mark-up.

Seems like we should be yelling at the public utilities to stop selling municipal water to bottlers in the first place.

All of these issues are real, and serious (although that article about cities on the verge of running out of water is old — it’s from January. Since I haven’t heard anything more recently about cities having no water supply, I suspect those particular crises have been averted). But the fact is that only 20% of California’s water supply goes to municipal, residential, and commercial users. 80% of the state’s water is used in agriculture, and because agricultural users are charged far less for their water than everyone else, they have no incentive to conserve. Cities, businesses, and individual users do need to conserve, too, and many of us are doing what we can, but it’s literally a drop in a bucket in comparison. California’s water woes will not be fixed until we deal with agriculture. This Slate article provides a pretty good overview of the issue, and the reasons why it’s so hard to come up with good solutions.

Oh dear god the crazy Glee spoilers have started up again.

Is it really that late in the year already.

Where did summer go.

Scarecrow Video has been a Seattle institution for many years. It started as a video rental store – and still is one – but it was owned by the kind of crazed film fanatics who run a business primarily as a way to build the biggest collection of things imaginable. The original owner was the sort of person who would fly on an hour’s notice to former Soviet republics on the rumour that he could get a SECAM videotape copy of a particular obscure Stalinist-era Belorussian film. And half the time, he’d return with it.
Despite having one of the largest film collections in the world – possibly the largest in the world – video rental doesn’t cut it anymore, so they’re going non-profit. But that’s expensive, too, so they’re launching a Kickstarter to make it happen. Go help.
I started renting from them when they were next to J&S Phonograph Needles in Roosevelt – yes that was a store for phonograph needles it didn’t make much sense them either – and remember when they moved to the U. District, on 50th and Roosevelt. They bought out what used to be the biggest Radio Shack ever, a multistory building with its own screening lounge and everything.
It’s pretty damn cool, and it’d be a disaster to lose such a comprehensive film collection – particularly as it is actually available to the public. Even the exotic stuff can be rented and/or screened – they have multiformat players available, too. In some cases, they have one of only three to four copies of films still in existence, and you can see it. That’s the kind of collection this is.
I’ve known one of the current owners for a long time; this project is a big deal for them, too. So go help them flip that switch to non-profit. As I write this, they’ve made 60% of goal in a day, thanks in no small part to The Onion‘s AV Club. Let’s see if we can’t get them there by tomorrow, eh?

Wow. I was just going to write a post about this myself, having just learned about the Kickstarter the other day, but now I don’t have to because Solarbird has said it all! 
For the record, I have been a long time employee of Scarecrow Video and it is the most amazing place for movies there is. It should be a historic landmark in Seattle! Let’s help keep it alive and kicking!!

Two of our good friends, including our best man at our wedding, were managers at Scarecrow for years. It’s where one of them met his wife. She was a customer, he was the cute, oblivious guy behind the counter. Fifteen years or so and two kids later, they’re still adorable enough together to be worth a movie of their own.
Scarecrow is more than just a video store, as indicated above. It’s a comprehensive collection of film and television from around the globe made accessible. When I say around the globe, I mean it, by the way. Their international section is glorious. 
Keeping that vision alive, well, that’s huge.
My email update this morning says they’re at about 70% after day one. (Brian and Ed were on this basically instantly yesterday, passing the news and the Kickstarter link along to the rest of us, which is pretty amazing, considering I think Ed’s still driving a moving van out to DC right now.)
If you’ve got a buck or five to spare for arts preservation, trust me: this is worth it. 

Film is Truth, the smaller Scarecrow equivalent a few hours north in Bellingham, is doing the same move [separate post forthcoming].
