20-min video: Wrought (Aeon Video/Vimeo). The role rot, decay, and mold play in making our world. “Don’t turn away in disgust. Come a little closer and see the universe that unfolds in these forsaken spaces.” Truly amazing.

long essay: How to Cook Thanksgiving Dinner, by Leslie Harpold (TMN), whose writing I miss more than I can say. “If there are small kids, explicitly ask one person to keep them corralled until dinnertime. This is a perfectly reasonable request, and as long as you’re polite about it, no one will think you hate children, unless, of course, you shout, “Will somebody get these goddamned brats out of my hair?” Threatening to turn them into a side dish will also not portray you in a good light.”
