What I read today: Aug. 24, 2012

I’m trying out a new feature on Ye Olde Blogge wherein I’ll document my daily Internet consumption habits and occasionally comment on what I’ve read. Like Instapaper, only with more K-pop videos. Ideally I’ll discipline myself to keep this up every day, but you know how these things go — mice, men, etc. This is mostly for my own edification; hopefully in a year I’ll be able to look back and say, “Ohh, that’s what I spent all my time doing.”
