Glorious. Foolhearty. IPA’s for the a.m. crowd. In the shower.
Drinking in the morning is no longer a sign that you have a problem with alcohol; it’s mandatory for getting through the day without committing a series of grisly homicides, then going on the run.

One was about a journalism conference, one was about the reverse lookup image search engine TinEye, and the last was about a blog about booze in movies. Here’s how that happened. I think we need to share practice. I often have students do a similar breadcrumb exercise for class.

…and a tweet in the Storify about TinEye, a reverse image lookup tool I had totally forgotten about.
I upload it to TinEye and, yes, it does search gifs. Here are the results.
25 results – TinEye

P.S. Here are all the links in one place using the ultraneat web archiving tool, Webrecorder:
Nick Sousanis is a generous soul. Just check out this post where he credits all and sundry, remarking on some “deleted scenes” from his grand graphic dissertation, Unflattening.
I assigned Unflattening this semester as a non-fiction component to my Intro to Lit course. Students loved it, especially the “Grids and Gestures” exercise. I will share these in a post early next week. Thanks, Nick.
Also, thanks for reminding me of the PopcornMaker piece I did in response to Unflattening.
