On Teasing Neko Case's New Album, 'The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You'

@adriana gasp!! my people! I seriously, SERIOUSLY, have been on a months-long Middle Cyclone kick and just two days ago was thinking, oh Neko, when will you give me more music? those albums just don't ever show any wear, you know? (you all know!)

On The Craving: One Woman's Salty Confession

@February Revolution I don't know what passable means but I'll give it a go! If you want something super trashy, like the regular-old mystery meat weiners, go for Yves or Tofurkey has them now! If you want something a leetle classier (more like a sausage/kielbasa-type thing) Tofurkey is good again, and also Field Roast brand. good luck and godspeed.

(I often eat the trashy ones raw, on a plate, with ketchup. yumyumyum.)

(p.s. disclaimer for being Canadian, so not sure what brands you have wherever you are!)

On When Killer Whales Actually Kill

@avidbiologist they're super cool! I think everyone (including myself) has a kneejerk reaction about how they hunt because... y'know, they're real good at it, and a lot of the animals they hunt are "cute" (seals, penguins) while they themselves are not so stereotypically cute. but fuck, they're so crazy intelligent. so impressive!

(and yeah, I do think it's weird. hopefully this doc will shed some light on the completely awful things done at marine parks. and again, I think it comes down to most people being able to empathize more easily with cute [terrestrial] mammals than fishy-type things.)
