📖 57.0% done with Son of Fletch by Gregory Mcdonald

We’re starting to go somewhere, but I can sadly already almost predict the ending. In particular, there was a ham-handed mention of a car that gave the whole thing away for me.

Of all of the Fletch books, so far this one seems to be the biggest influencer for the creation of portions of the movie Fletch Lives, which was otherwise made out of whole cloth based on the character.

“I suspect it’s not every man’s dream to discover his son is a cop-killing, escaped convict, racist, hate-group organizer.”

York Boulevard restaurant changes name and menu only months after opening by The Eastsider (theeastsiderla.com)
HIGHLAND PARK — Recess Eatery, the large and ambitious restaurant that opened in January after lengthy delays, has undergone an abrupt transformation. Recess and its Mediterranean-inspired menu have been replaced by 51 Tavern, “a cross between a neighborhood tavern and a small town restaurant,” according to the restaurant website. One diner who tried the 51 ...

10 great Last.fm apps, hacks and mashups by Martin Bryant (The Next Web)(2011 years 5 months 14 days)
A look at some of the best apps, hacks and mashups available for music streaming and scrobbling service Last.fm.

Curious about alternatives Last.fm’s broken RSS feeds and what people are doing with their listening data. Some relatively interesting ideas in here, but nothing earth shattering. One or two were focused on visualization, but otherwise nothing I felt I could use.

We’re off like a shot. Somehow it doesn’t seem terrifically believable that the escape convicts so easily take Fletch’s advice on where to hide, but he does a fantastic job of coralling them in the opeining.

Some of the overt “Southernness” feels overdone to me, but perhaps it was the effect of Mcdonald’s many years living in Tennessee which had a tarnishing effect.

How to print your posters on fabric by Veronika CheplyginaVeronika Cheplygina (Veronikach.com)
My material of choice became fabric. After some searching, I settled on this product, in particular the “vlaggendoek” or “flag sheet” variety. This material weights just 115 grams for 1m2, which is conveniently almost the same size as an A0 (841mm × 1189mm). Printing + delivery costs just over 20 euros, which is actually cheaper than an A0 paper poster with a plastic coating. That’s not all: apparently the material is fire retardant, because you never know when fire could break out at a conference. But the best thing of all? You can fold it and it still looks great when you unfold it!
