2. A wasp cut of a cold cut.

3. "No, it's Baron of Bad News."

4. Baron Ryan on the age-old subject, Nothing is something.

2. A wasp cut of a declassified cold cut.

That wasp prefers baloney over some poor insects’s head he had been biting off just moments before.

Tonight’s selections are in the right order.

I loved the First Sunset Since April one. It packs a huge visceral experience into a few seconds in a lovely way…until the speaker gets silly at the end.

The wasp with the cold cut also gives me lots of information…but I’d rather not see it.

Omg wasp hands down. Such drive and purpose!

Writing an email to the Pope??

2. I liked the background music and light kitchen clatter -- very heimlich.

Four months of no darkness. A true nightmare.

So, while we are on the subject, what does "curated" mean?

"Writing an email to the Pope??"

If you pause it when the text is on screen, you can read it. It's about muffins.

I like all of them, but I note that two out of the five fall into the "conversations with self" category, which will annoy certain commenters.

The Wasp is my favorite here... can't get enough of tiny creatures eating stuff. That's a whole 'nuther category...

The answer to #4?

Everything

"So, while we are on the subject, what does "curated" mean?"

To quote the OED, the relevant meaning of "curate" is "To select and organize (the items in a set or collection), frequently for presentation, display, or publication; to put together or compile (a set or collection of some kind) selectively. Sometimes with humorous allusion to senses 1 and 2a."

Sense #1 is "To look after and preserve (the exhibits in a collection, as in a museum); to be the keeper or custodian of (a collection, museum, public garden, etc.),"

Sense 2a. us "To select, organize, and present the items for (an exhibition), typically using professional knowledge or expertise."

It's jocose.

the Baron of bad news made me laugh

Be absolutely miserable, but change nothing...

That's a good set-up

Be a man.

That's a good pay-off.

And then the hacking laugh off camera.

Off-camera was a good technique.

It made me think, "what's going on off camera? What event happened that made that guy laugh so hard? What had they been talking about?"

Kind of a freaky one. Liked it.

The Baron of bad news - reminded me of Mondegreens and made me chuckle.
