Dear Malazan fans, please stop depicting Kalam and Quick Ben as white or fairly light skinned. They’re black. Or very dark skinned at least. The Malazan series is the one that does away with most of the fantasy clichés, on purpose, with no sexism, empresses instead of emperors, people of all skin colours hanging together, lesbian soldiers, no dwarves/elves/little people so why can’t you accept that 2 of the most awesome characters don’t look like you, average white male from western countries?
Please accept it.

Found out, finally, that I can’t easily follow comprehensive tutorials that include the whole specs of a language but I’m best with smaller, get-started-in-x-minutes tutorials and then working on a project to put into practice what I’ve learned.
And, I fucking hate video tutorials. Let me read FFS!

The meaning of ‘Ulysses’ was always bound up with buying it, owning it, and showing it off, actions that assert the primacy of pleasure—the moral right to experience it—over sanctimony.Dan Chiasson on Bloomsday and James Joyce’s most celebrated work: http://nyr.kr/1i25BSs (via newyorker)
You do the most amazing discoveries when on a hurry to drink something and not willing to settle for tried drinks. Yesterday I wanted to have a drink with Orgeat but had just a couple of minutes between World Cup matches. So I quickly concocted this:
No shaking, just build in a rocks glass over cubed ice. Stir a bit afterwards or the orgeat will stay on the bottom.
Amazing drink. Try it. The Gin makes for the “dry” flavour, Orgeat is the “sweet” and Soda gives some bubbles that in the hot summer afternoons are always appreciated. I suspect it would be even better with 1/2cl of Lime juice.
