Syfy’s The Magicians has always been far from the straightest show in television. Its queerness is ever-present, sewn into the fabric of a universe where sex is magic and the relationships between its main characters freely disregard the borders of platonic and romantic love.
Still, even with the backdrop of polyamorous throuples and gay royals, the primary romance on the show has been that of Quentin Coldwater and Alice Quinn — a heterosexual pairing that has waxed and waned, but until recently remained at the center of many of the show’s plots.

Every so often, someone will act very angry online because a recipe they clicked on has "too much text." They wanted to make mushroom ravioli, but instead had to scroll through a bunch of words about what mushroom ravioli means to a blogger's family. Boring!
It's true that many (if not most) food bloggers write long narratives preceding their recipes. Sometimes, they explain how they developed the recipe. Other times, they share why they chose to post this particular food, or explain the modifications they've made to accommodate family members with dietary restrictions. They might share a story about the dish providing them comfort in a difficult time, or how cooking the dish with a loved one healed a broken relationship. Food is personal, after all; it comes with stories. Read more...More about Twitter, Recipes, Social Media, Bloggers, and Culture

The discovery of the tiny camera, which we're more used to seeing positioned above laptop displays, was made by passenger Vitaly Kamluk. He tweeted asking for expert opinion as to whether this was indeed a camera.
YouTube rabbit holes are an inescapable reality of the internet. You go to the site with one clip in mind and those damn thumbnails pique your interest enough to make you click on another video, and another, and another.
There is one benefit to the never-ending cycle of YouTube videos: You only need to watch one clip on historic painting conservation to find one of the most oddly satisfying YouTube community out there.
The restoration community is a corner of YouTube boasting thousands of subscribers and millions of views. For the most part, it breaks down into four major subdivisions: shoes, swords and knifes, small machinery, and toy restoration. Surprisingly, though, while all of these items, most of the content creators all had similar things to say. Read more...More about Asmr, Satisfying, Restoration, Watercooler, and Web Culture
The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular items in gaming right now – units are flying off the shelves, and at one point it was near impossible to get your hands on one. But, now you have yours, and you're ecstatic. There's one problem, though – the console's included Joy-Cons are just *way* too small for your hands, and they become super uncomfortable after long play sessions. So, what are you going to do?
