The Music of La Mancha Screwjob

radiolab.org — (Illustration Credit: Matthew Kielty, Latif Nasser) Radiolab is a very musical show, and I sometimes get more credit for that than I deserve. For our last episode, which was about authenticity and realness (as filtered through professional wrestling and Cervantes), I put out a request on Facebook for songs that include the lyrics "is this real?"

Insect Army (Job van der Molen)

designandviolence.moma.org — From the curators: In preparation for "unforeseen enemy attacks," Dutch artist Job van der Molen has gradually created his own private insect militia, complete with laser guns, missile racks, and rocket launchers. A practitioner of the delicate process of taxidermy, Molen has weaponized a range of tiny insects, transforming them into six-legged war machines.

Digital Shamanism - Radiolab's Old-Fashioned, Newfangled Storytelling Magic

bigthink.com — Transcript Jad Abumrad: I do feel like the kind of storytelling that I do is somehow independent of the technology that delivers it. I mean, I do happen to work on the radio, and I'm a guy who likes sound, so, in that sense, this technology does suit me.

Also, if you disturb them, they'll leave little yellow marks on your wall, which is their blood.

Ladybug infestation has me doing research. Apparently, ladybugs, while trying to hibernate in your house, live off of their own body fats.
