A Lover’s Pinch: A Cultural History of Sadomasochism

A Lover's Pinch: A Cultural History of Sadomasochism %18.70 (Kindle) from Amazon Although there are many books about S&M, most of them focus on the erotic or instructional. This isn’t the case with A Lover’s Pinch: A Cultural History of Sadomasochism, a book by kinkster Peter Tupper. This means that A Lover’s Pinch fills a void, and it dives to depths I couldn’t have imagined before I started reading. A Lover’s Pinch is a deep dive that goes far beyond Leopold von Sacher-Masoch the Marquis...

Weekend Reading

Holiday hellos friends! Tonight’s is the last of the holiday parties to attend, then I’m going to settle in for a week of preparation before Christmas arrives.

Jane Perrone, “Plantfluencer” and Brit, Joins GGVideos

Houseplants are HOT, according to the New York Times and all sorts of prognosticators and social media-watchers. So I looked for houseplant YouTubers on my own but found the topic pretty lacking in video instruction. Lifestyle YouTubers may occasionally show viewers their favorite houseplants, but do they even know what they’re talking about? And do I know enough about houseplants to judge? Definitely not! That’s where I got the idea to hire a “Friend of GardenRant” and guest Ranter from...

(Not) Learning From My Mistakes

L et’s start with the successes. The Christmas cactus is blooming better than it has in years. I count twelve blooms on it, which is double–maybe triple–what it had last year. I attribute that to following my readers’ advice and summering it outside for the past two years. And I’m pretty sure it’s a bona fide Christmas cactus, because there are no points on its leaves. The poinsettia my friend gave me is thriving. It’s not as easy to keep a poinsettia happy as you might think. They don’t l...

Saturday afternoon (and the winners are...)

Many apologies for the delay in announcing the recipients of a Candlestick Press pamphlet here, but at the very moment that I had a moment to sit down and write a post the Typepad composing screen went into complete meltdown, and I have only just managed to find another moment. We did however notify Jane, Penny, Jane, Joan, Pat, Jackie, Lois and Debra to expect a bit of 'pot-luck poetic treasure' as soon as we had their addresses, and Bookhound took the treasures to the Post Office a few days a...

Paperwhite fonts adding random dashes/hyphens

I just got the 2018 Kindle Paperwhite, but this was the case on my previous model (2015) as well: it doesn't happen in every book, and it only happens at font size 1, but sometimes at the end of the line the Kindle inserts what I've been calling a 'fake hyphen' - it doesn't look like the hyphens that are part of the actual book, and it's placed where there should be a space between words. Not when a single word is running over onto a second line, which would make sense. There's a space, then t...

Mueller Should Release the Cohen Interviews ~ VIDEO

Opinion Gingrich Calls for Mueller to Release 70 Hours of Cohen Interviews USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- As the media clamors to cover each nugget of information that comes out of Robert Mueller’s investigation into so-called collusion with Russia, it’s becoming more and more clear just how brutal the Mueller team’s tactics are.In many ways, the investigation has moved from being a Washington witch hunt vaguely concerning Russia to being a political inquisition of President Trump and his allies.

How To Estimate Wind for Long-Range Shooting

Whether you use technology like a Kestrel or manually estimate it to enter into a ballistic app, accurate data is a must. A small wind can cause big misses. USA –-(Ammoland.com)- If wind were constant like gravity, making long-range first shot hits would be easy. Just let your ballistic calculator do the math and press the trigger properly.However, the wind isn’t constant—it’s always changing, often second to second. To add complexity to the matter, it’s not at all uncommon for wind conditions...

How to turn off Sounds in Sigil

I use Windows 7 and would like to turn off the sounds Sigil uses. i.e. The ding that is heard when I select "delete unused stylesheet classes" and a window message appears stating there are none to delete. My reason is that I often do a live recording using Audacity. These can take some time so I usually work in Sigil during the recording process. Having all these dings appearing spasmodically throughout spoils the recording.

"'Die Hard,' which opens today at the Baronet and Criterion Center, has more than its share of bloody moments and blasted bodies, and it has some abysmal scenes as well."

"The former ballet star Alexander Godunov is a conspicuous terrorist, jumping around the set in a basic black costume and flowing blond hair. As the brother of McClane’s first victim, he gets to say things like 'I want blood!' And when McClane realizes he has been too hard on his wife, he radios an unintentionally funny message to Al: 'Tell her that she is the best thing that ever happened to a bum like me.'"The last paragraph of the 1988 review of "Die Hard," which the NYT just reprinted as par...

How to Adjust for Wind: Long-Range Shooting

While estimating wind is part art and part voodoo, there are some simple tricks that help. The Magpul CORE Rifle Data Book includes a cheat sheet to help. USA –-(Ammoland.com)- One wouldn’t think wind could have much effect on a tiny and aerodynamic bullet zipping along at two or three thousand feet per second when long range shooting. But one would be wrong.Even though most bullets are dense, being made of lead, and moving fast, a small to moderate wind can cause big misses at long distances ...
