Huffington Post - 8 months
Netflix can be a treasure trove of hidden gems (see: "The Babadook," "Short Term 12"), but for every great movie there are about 10 terrible ones clogging your feed.  To help you weed out a few of the bad seeds, we've put together a list of the worst films on the streaming service, according to their Rotten Tomatoes ratings. (But hey, "worst" is subjective here. Who doesn't love watching a terrible movie every now and then?)  With each of these films earning a 0 percent rating, it doesn't really get any worse. Happy watching! 1.

The Viola da Gamba: Cultivating Quiet Music
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Last November The New York Times Magazine published a "Brief History of Failure" as part of its Innovations issue, featuring a selection of unheard-of inventions and contraptions assumed to have gone silent over time ("A Brief History of Failure," November 12, 2014). Positioned just below the pneumatic rail was the musical instrument that I play -- the viola da gamba -- the Renaissance and Baroque instrument currently in the midst of an important musical revival and a cornerstone of the historical performance movement. Curious to learn more about the specific motivations for the article, which offered as a caveat that "what follows is -- depending on how you want to think about it -- either a gallery of technologies we lost or an invitation to consider alternate futures," I investigated the drawing that was used to showcase the instrument.

Pelmeni What they are: Small dumplings filled with meat, mushrooms, and/or other fillings wrapped in a thin, flour-based dough. Variations exist throughout Russia. What's the deal: Pelmeni are kind of like a cross between Chinese jiaozi and Polish pierogies, are extremely common, and were initially popular because they stayed preserved when frozen and, well, everything in Russia is kind of frozen for a good part of the year. They're also super easy to cook. ...
