Entertainers have been broadcasting from home during the quarantine to mixed results. The best one I've seen, by far, has been British folk singer Kate Rusby. An original and a classic.

Edit: also this one.

  • Weekly links are going to be thin for a bit, because I recently found out Andrew Hussie uploaded book-length epilogue to Homestuck which, so far, is very, very good, and reading it is heavily eating into my limited messing-around-on-the-internet time.
  • Speaking of reading, the short story Rogue Farm is free and legal online.
  • Every McDonalds in Austria is now a de facto US consulate.
