Some slipped through this time—forgot to copy the URLs across, just closed-tab and went on to the next thing. So: blip, gone. But the thing about the internet is that there’s always more. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been into last few . . . I don’t know, ‘days’ for sure, but also ‘weeks,’ and probably not plural months. But maybe one month, or a month and a half. Just the best, none of the drek:

Because I likely won’t remember to give attribution for each link, I’ll just say it here: probably three-quarters of these paleo type links are from a friend, Joe Lansdale (and all the Apple ones are from my wife). Just, don’t want to pretend I have my thumb on all the good pulses. Rather, I know people with those thumbs. Anyway, on with the reads, starting with the longer stuff:

I used to screencap these into the monthly best-of posts, but when I started doing those as galleries they ended up getting shrunk to illegibility, so I lazily & loserly gave up. So, this is me trying to reverse that: the best articles I’ve been reading, that I can A) still clearly rememberer, and B) actually FIND. So, some of them self-embed, don’t ask me how, and the others I’ll just put the title/link up in a list, below. That doesn’t mean they…
