Happy Friday!

From Bunny: Apparently we live in the kindest state in America. (Also, stay away from Maryland.) Stay safe and have a spiffy weekend. See you next week.

Hello and happy Monday. The Summer of Extreme Busy-ness continues, but here's a fun link about a British council worker who decided to see how far he could travel by bus in 24 hours. As someone whose local bus route has been discontinued, I am extremely envious.

 Happy Friday!

Theater in Quarantine is an amazing channel showing just how creative performers can get in a (very!) small space. Check it out!

If you ever wanted to know how to pronounce Cincinnati-area places, or wondered how to say "goetta," or any other local lingo, this Reddit thread is perfect.

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, everyone. Back soon with more links.

If it seems like I've been neglecting Folderol, it's true. Life has gotten really busy lately. I'm still posting links when I can; it's just something that's on the back burner these days.

With that being said, here are some newsletters I'm subscribed to (which I'm also way behind on reading). Folderol will not become a newsletter, because ha, that would be ridiculous, but many other weblogs have transmogrified into subscription sites, and many of those are free (or super cheap) and really interesting!

In no particular order:

Walk It Off  (about walking, oddly enough, but also deeper topics)

Garbage Day (what's new on the internet)

Twirling Through It (by Tom and Lorenzo)

Everything is Amazing (finding joy in the everyday)

Today in Tabs (all about media and the brave new online world, especially in NYC)

Cup of Coffee (baseball and much more)

Money Stuff (mostly read for work, but also to learn about finance)

The Gossip Reading Club (what it says on the tin)

Dearest (historical jewelry and whatnot)

 Happy Friday the 13th!

It has been a WEEK here. Very busy and not much time to post. 

However, consider this goose, which has drawn comparisons to Jonathan Livingston Seagull. May your weekend be safe, spiffy, and full of new discoveries!

Here at Spooky Librarians HQ, we are big fans of Hearts of Space. "Slow music for fast times," as they say.  I also recommend Echoes, and I just checked and saw that Thistle and Shamrock is still around, putting out new shows! It's good to know there's still some serenity out there on the airwaves.

Today's link is for the history lovers. Skipped History is a great look at stories most of us never heard about. I started with the Wall Street Scandal of 1905, which then led to learning about the U.S. occupation of the Philippines during the 1890s and 1900s. Hopefully more seasons are on the way!

 Hello and happy August! Right now, the forecast is...well...not so great.

In slightly related news, the Chinese youth have a new resistance movement called tang ping, or lying flat, which I find fascinating. 

In totally unrelated news, Restaurant-ing Through History is a delightful site full of tasty goodness. I especially like the hash house lingo post!
