Scrape IFTTT Instagram media into WordPress

I’m a photography nut. I love using my DSLR, I’m mad about film cameras and I use Instagram all the time. I’m also a WordPress user and I have a problem with Instagram: the photos are not preserved on my… Continue Reading →

Wait a minute. Beyoncé is black?

Oh, Saturday Night Live. Sometimes you miss it but this you’re right on target. I should start DVR’ing this season.
