Filmed an episode of Mental Floss today! 15 innovations making the world better for women, because everyone deserves access to safe and clean toilets, sanitary pads, and educational resources. Stay tuned for the video.

Sweet! Emily Graslie plus Mental Floss sounds like a winning combination, and it’s a really interesting topic. Looking forward to the video!

…though for about a quarter second there as I was scrolling down I honestly thought it was another Hank Green / Taylor Swift mashup

How do we put together our syllables? Where do the consonants and vowels go inside our words? This week on The Ling Space, we talk about syllable structure: how we fit the sounds together, how we decide what consonants go where, and how we know what makes words rhyme.

Looking forward to hearing what people have to say about our latest trip to phonology-land!

Just a quick morning reblog. If you ever wanted to talk about Club Onset and Club Coda, this is the chance. ^_^

New ep is up!

I found this awesome JEDI JOURNAL at a flea market. Thought I’d share some scans of its glory.

On some of the pages, the author practiced his cursive signature. So I looked up his name, found a match, and this happened:

Did you ask him if he still goes by “Chubby”?

Man. I recently found old journals of myself from about that same age, and yes – stuff like that is golden. Reading back, you can almost remember what it felt like to be, like, seven – what was important to you, what you were thinking when you were writing things like “I wos two years wen I saw a ice crem”… Maybe as a writer especially, it can be awesome to reconnect with your seven-year-old self; writing kids can be really hard, and every little bit helps.

Poo on you.
