True Blood season 6: Live from the set. Get an inside look into the new season of True Blood with commentary from cast and crew.
“Then she saw a star fall, leaving behind it a bright streak of fire. ‘Someone is dying,’ thought the little girl, for her old grandmother, the only one who had ever loved her, and who was now dead, had told her that when a star falls, a soul was going up to God.”
— from The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen, in Andersen’s Fairy Tales
fairy tales are just plain creepy! ”the only one who had ever loved her…” Dang!
Not to spoil the Brothers Grimm’s Cinderella for anyone, but the stepsisters actually cut off parts of their feet to make the shoe fit.

I’d like to cancel my subscription to Menstrual Cycle Monthly
I’m sorry, it appears you’ve taken out a fifty-sixty year subscription. However, we can pause it for nine months as long as you sign a contract that says you’ll take out a subscription to Baby Daily for at least eighteen years
Damn those Terms and Conditions.
nobody ever reads the fine print!

We recently posted photos of an awesome dog with markings that form a natural mustache. Now it’s time to meet an equally awesome mustachioed kitty. Meet Hamilton (the Hipster Cat)!
Born in San Francisco with the markings that resemble a dashing white handlebar mustache, Hamilton lived in a Silicon Valley animal shelter until he was was adopted by Jay Stowe:
“Hamilton is a rescue kitty that was born on the 4th of July (probably). He has a real mustache that is better than any mustache that has ever walked this planet.”
Jay shares photos of his debonair feline friend Hamilton (and Hamilton’s amazing ‘stache) on Instagram.

I wonder if Paul Auster has been to one recently, though.
Libraries have actually become, in the US at least, de facto homeless shelters and centers for the mentally ill, as well as a resource for those needing childcare as well as the unemployed seeking work. There’s now signs on some of them in New York barring people from bringing ‘large packages’ which basically means ‘homeless people cannot bring their life’s belongings in here’—but they allowed it for almost a decade as homelessness in New York reached epic proportions. There’s actually very few places in American life so of this world, more than a library. Most public libraries are where you can see what is really going on for most Americans in a way you won’t ever see on the news or in a television show, or even in most fiction or nonfiction. And it is to the credit of most librarians that they continue to operate, despite budget cuts, the outlandish depravity of austerians and privitization mongrels. So, let’s not treat libraries like delicate flowers or temples withdrawn from the concerns of the world. They’ve shown themselves to be much tougher than that. Let’s instead make them what they should be, a better thing than what they’ve had to become—and look to what has been laid at their feet as a map to what our country really needs from its government services.
Alexander Chee, telling it like it is.
we’re a community center serving a population that does not pump money into our failing economy. It’s easy for government officials to slight our patrons because they don’t see them as important, if they see them at all.
