WhichBook- the sexual misadventures of the offspring of famous leftists?

When I was a teen, my Dad borrowed an autobiography from the library for me. I think the author was the child of some famous '50s or '60s leftists/radicals/communists. (Maybe someone in the circle of the Rosenbergs?) He recounts his early, fumbling sexual experiences/misadventures. It may have been a general autobiography with a lot of sexual content, or strictly sexual memoirs. The only bit I really remember is NSFW and so below the fold: [more inside]

What's wrong with Shaun King?

In the latest episode of the podcast "Yo, Is This Racist?", Tawny Newsome says that Shaun King is a "scammer", who women of color have been sounding the alarm about for years. I'm willing to believe this, but I'd like to see some specific, verifiable charges against King. What memo did I miss? [more inside]

Garageband from ipad to mac track moving!

I have a project that i'm working on in garageband on my mac computer. i ALSO have garageband for ipad and i recorded a track on there that i would like to insert into my existing project on my computer. I can get the file from my ipad to my mac, but i can't just drag the track into the other project, as it makes me close one project before opening another. Is there a better way to do this? thanks!

Interactive story or poem – what was this website I remember?

I'm trying to find a website I saw probably five or ten years ago. It was an interactive text (I can't remember if it was more like a poem or a story), which began with a single line of descriptive writing. When you clicked a word in the text, the writing expanded to include more detail. [more inside]

Can you recall an article about Donald Trump and John Casablancas?

I remember reading an article years ago that I can't find now. I think it was not a minor news article but instead a new piece of investigative journalism. I remember it having extensive context and background about the modeling world of the 90s, about John Casablancas, and about Donald Trump, through the lens of their exploitation of women.

How can I listen to the Discworld audiobooks for a reasonable price?

My library only has about a dozen of the 41 Terry Pratchett Discworld books as audiobook. Of all the other audiobook services I can find, only Audible has the unabridged books available in the US. But (I believe) I can only get one book per month unless I pay $30-$50 each! Is there any other affordable legal option to listen to them all? Preferably faster than over 3 years?

Books for boys that aren't about farts, butts, or "no girls allowed"

I need a new series of books for my son. He is six (AND A HALF! as he would proudly tell you), and we have finished several book series and he's eager for a new one. We've read the entire Ramona Quimby set (which he absolutely loved), the entire new Amelia Bedelia set (which was fun but he didn't love them), and all the Harry Potter books he's able to handle so far (which he loved but they were getting too scary for him). When we finished the final Ramona book, he asked what series was next, and I have no idea what to try. [more inside]

Small farm content

I'm looking for YouTube channels that feature day-in-the-life content of small scale farmers. Whether it's livestock, growing, digging, fence-building, or whatever, I'd like channels that focus on the actual doing as opposed to instructional or informative. Minimal voiceover is a bonus.
