The quiet pivot

joelgascoigne:

In the last 6 months, we’ve quietly shifted the direction of Buffer. Our adjustment is now almost complete and we’re charging ahead with our new vision. It’s interesting to reflect on how we came to realize that a change was needed, and how we went about finding our new path.

How the E.T. documentary chronicles the birth of the unsatisfied game consumer | Polygon

A friend at Machinima told me about the legendary horrible ET game as we were planning a promotion. I didn’t recall it although my family did have an Atari. I think we bought the game to be honest… This piece in Polygon is a nice take and the story of a community coming together and showing power in its earliest days.

this playlist is exactly what I was looking for

Saw Lone Survivor tonight.  Wow.  It’s a full-scale assault on the audience.  Violent.  Relentless.  Unforgettable. Worth watching.

We made this New York Times creamy Mac and Cheese recipe again this year for New Year’s Eve.  It’s probably the 4th or 5th time Jennifer and I have made mac and cheese and celebrated at home for NYE.  I love it when we do.
For 2013 NYE, we tweaked the recipe.
1) Instead of using 1 lb of generic sharp cheddar cheese, we are using 8oz of Idiazabal sheep’s milk cheese from Spain (via Joan’s on Third) and 8 oz of Kerrygold vintage Irish cheddar.  We expect the Idiazabal to add a smokey taste and to melt really nicely.
2) We also added a pound of Applegate Farms Organic Sunday Bacon.  Cooked the bacon in the oven until crisp, chopped it up, and mixed it into the Mac and cheese mixture before baking.
I think this is going to be awesome.  The pic above is the Mac and Cheese cooling off on our counter before we dig in.
