Concluding week of blue-themed content with embarrassing revelation: have spent more than five Internet minutes searching for replacement for these, discovered at some smugb!tchtastic markdown price last year. Have worn through one sole, need to replace, no longer available at shameful Data-Breaching Mass Retailer That Shall Not Be Named. Oddly perfect for water-related house/yard chores and v long & necessary corgiwalks.

This week’s posts will be brought to you by the color BLUE.

Mention of the Diego Garcia base re missing Malaysian Air flight reminded me I once profiled the PM of Mauritius, a country often tragically confused with Mauritania, much to the dismay of both nations.

The Diego Garcia base is one crazy emereffing story. Read more about the Chagos Archipelago here.

More about plight of evicted indigenous Diego Garcians here.

Thank you, NYT, for yet another piece of snoozy pop-culture criticism. BUT writer mentions this, which is a fantastic read that was then adapted into queer feature film. In clip above: Alice Cooper’s band and Neil Young’s future ex-GF.
