  • Mark Bittman, the author of the indispensable cookbook How to Cook Everything, published a recipe for red snapper in his New York Times column. Grist Magazine pointed out that red snapper are dreadfully overfished. Monterey Bay Aquarium’s blog Sea Notes reports on the ensuing conservation controversy:

Somewhat surprisingly, perhaps, the mea culpa did not come forth. Instead Bittman replied that Seafood Watch is published by scientists, and not cooks. Well, no one wants to dispute that. Especially not us! Our Seafood Watch program’s credibility and authority comes from the fact that a team of in-house scientists independently assesses each species to arrive at a recommendation based entirely on science!

  • Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn may be declared a Superfund site. I used to live in the neighborhood formerly known as Gowanus Flats (since renamed Boerum Hill by developers) and I have a great fondness for the scrappy life – tunicates! mussels! fish! – hanging on in the canal’s oily waters. It has the potential be a great urban marine ecosystem and I hope it gets cleaned up.
  • Xtranormal lets you make your own 3D animated movies based just off text. Check out playwright/screenwriter Greg Machlin’s example. (Via Greg’s blog Insert Title Here)
  • Woody Harrelson defends assault on cameraman by claiming that he thought the guy was a zombie. This happens to me all the time.

    “I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character,” Harrelson said in a statement issued Friday by his publicist.
