- Nightshade and Electric Velocipede announce a new partnership. Hooray, guys!
- How to Walk in the Snow, A PAMPHLET by one Dave Schwartz: Plant your foot as though you were a giant whose tendons would snap under your weight if you were to walk unevenly. Also, please note that moonwalking is not recommended. There is more.
- Edward vs. Buffy. (Via Leila.) This is wonderful, and timely, since a couple of nights ago I felt the need for a jolt of Buffy and watched What's My Line? pt. 1 and 2. Oh, beloved show, you are still missed.
- Best of mania continues. The LA Times and Amazon both have good Best of YA lists out with plenty of overlap, and Salon has its best of the year list and a more intriguing list of recommendations from some of the editors' favorite authors. (I heartily second all Kelly's recs, especially Molly Gloss's The Hearts of Horses, which was on my tops list last year.)
- The Washington Post chronicles a memorable performance by Loretta Lynn. I'm not surprised, since the last time we saw her the wheels-off-the-tour-bus vibe was palpable. (My favorite part of that show is still when she informed us that, "Everyone song I sing sounds alike," after starting in on "You Ain't Woman Enough" for the third time.)
- The great Nicola Griffith muses on possible future business models combining artistic fulfillment and financial solvency.
- I find the happiness contagion stories fascinating.
- Matt Cheney commits hypertextualization with his story "New Practical Physics" (originally published in an issue of our beloved, late Say…).
- Justine on the neverending, all-important perfection of craft.
- This is my favorite map ever–Christopher takes Puck and Emma for a walk earlier today, before the rains arrive.

Thing 1: The Edward vs. Buffy bit made this gray day in Mississippi a bit brighter. Not vampire sparkly, though. More like werewolf sheeny.
Thing 2: Have you been reading Buffy Season Eight? It’s occasionally very awesome and has been a help to me in these years post-Hellmouth.
I have really and truly enjoyed Season Eight, even the parts that are less awesome, because it definitely captures the texture of the show right. I’m behind though, picking them up in trades as I remember. Any word on Angel Season Whichever (6?)? I’ve been curious about whether it’s worth picking up.
If you are behind then there is much coolness ahead, including a fun crossover which I won’t spoil in case you remain blissfully unaware.
As for Angel, it is season 6, and I can’t really say much besides I borrowed and read the first couple of issues which, while fun, didn’t wow me the way the Buffy comics have.
