I was today years old when I learned that Minnie Riperton is Maya Rudolph’s mother: music.apple.com/us/album/…

Played around with Yay.Boo this morning. I think the URLs are self explanatory?


Pretty please?

Please wash hands before returning to work sign.

I picked up an iPad Mini. I plan for it to be a thoughtful consumption device. NetNewsWire, Matter, and Libby installed, among other things. Any recommendations?

The Ticketmaster four ticket limit is really a bummer for a family of five.

Oh, I finally broke down and ordered an iPad Mini. That means a new announcement is imminent!

Some good stuff hitting the Good Enough printer. Thanks, @jthingelstad! 😆

Giving Panic’s Nova for Ruby on Rails development a try, so far with the Ruby on Rails extension (by Tommaso Negri) and that’s it. Happy to hear other extension suggestions. Been using VS Code for some years, but it seems constantly in “what’s the best configuration?” hell. We’ll see how it goes.

I adored Hasan Minhaj’s Homecoming King. That makes this story especially disappointing. Sure, make up stories. But when you include real people, identifiably, and keep “emotional truthing” the lies you told about them?! Come on.

Surprised myself in self-discovering that at most times if I’m alone I’d rather watch a pro video game streamer’s feed (currently Fortnite) than a sporting event.

Janelle Monáe was very good. Glad to have seen her live.

Quite an interesting project: Postmarks single-user bookmarking website.

Basically every radio station is playing Fast Car and We Didn’t Start the Fire. Welcome to 2023!

I still go to smile.amazon.com.

I love going to concerts. There’s one I want to see tonight. I have tickets to Janelle Monáe next Monday. I don’t love the 150 minutes of driving required and the sleep deprivation. I’m not planning to go tonight and I am weirdly unexcited for Monáe. This seems like it might be a key self discovery.

Wishing Steven Wilson had a mailing list in addition to an RSS news feed. (Unless I’m missing it?) I miss the short window on his deluxe edition preorders every time.

Yes, throwing it back.
