Binging with Babish: Biscuits from Ted Lasso

Since the tiny teaser for this recipe appeared in the Season 2 trailer for Ted Lasso, Twitter demanded to know what the recipe was. So here’s Binging with Babish to fill us in.

Can confirm: it’s an incredibly good recipe.

2″ Ampex “Quad” commercial dubbing for KIMA TV January 1991

Submitted without context. I started searching for very old TV workflow videos about two years ago and only now (!) did Youtube bother to suggest new ones.

This video is a tiny snapshot of what jobs for teenagers in the vintage TV industry looked like.

Everything is digital files and automation now.

Mealworms eating tomato, broccoli romanesco and corn – 10.000 worms! #3

It’s a timelapse, so maybe not quite as gross as at regular speed. 48 hours and literally everything is gone. So crazy.

And there it went: Friday Videos!!

Happoy Friday, have an amazing weekend, and please stay safe. We’re getting there. Slowly but surely.

See you next week.

Meet Some Of The Last Papyrus Makers In Egypt Keeping A 5,000-Year-Old Craft Alive | Still Standing

“Papyrus paper originated in ancient Egypt. Today, just one village still makes the paper, but after a year without tourists, workers are struggling to keep their doors open.”

I mean, if it’s a purely tourist process, it kind of begs the question of how badly it’s still needed.

Still interesting.

Oh hey speaking of Egypt…

‘Lost golden city’ of 3,000 years unearthed in Egypt

“What is believed to be the largest ancient city found in Egypt, Aten, buried under sand for millennia, has been rediscovered, and experts say it is one of the most important finds since the unearthing of Tutankhamun’s tomb.”

Lots going on in the Egyptian archaeological world over the past two years. Love it.
