    If you're planning on listening the live broadcast of a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from Kings College tomorrow, you will want to bookmark this page:
  3. Oh hooray! Neil Gaiman is reading through the Dark is Rising series of books written by Susan Cooper! You can listen to Midwinter’s Eve on Midwinter’s Day.
  4. Happy Last Sunday of Advent and wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
  5. I've been using a bunch of these tools forever. Apple News+ is great. So is Reeder. And NetNewsWire is free.
