Plans are useless but...

If you missed last year's live albums, Midori Shows 1 and 2, by Stick Men featuring David Cross, a double CD Midori is now available.

I sure hope you're playing along in the Albright Knox's 3rd annual Art Madness, this year featuring sculpture.

March 28th kicks off Museum Week, the "first worldwide cultural event on Twitter." Just follow the #MuseumWeek hashtag.

The NFL is considering several rule changes, one of which is the elimination of overtime in preseason games. That one seems like a no-brainer.

I think this qualifies as craft pr0n: the making of shiny mud balls.

Food expiration dates mean nothing.

Reheating steak seems like an oxymoron - who doesn't finish a good steak in one sitting and who'd bother to reheat a bad steak? Regardless, the best method for reheating a steak may surprise you.

Science sheds light on the important issue: sperm swim together in close groups through viscoelastic fluids.

More science? This video had me at random couscous.
