Advice of the day


The Kenyan beans from Intelligentsia coffee made a great cup of Aeropress coffee this morning.

So much more flavor than the Keruig pods that I’ve been in a rut with lately ☕️

What made me a progressive?

###American society.###

The unjust, racisist, misogynist society that protects wealty white men. The society that belittles the humanity of people that are not white. The society that belives property is more valuable and important than people.

Did you know there are reaction videos that are reactions to reaction videos on YouTube?

I knew that there were reaction videos.
I did not know that people reacted to those reaction videos.

Do people react to the reaction videos of the reaction videos?

This is the best.

Missed Deliver Delimma:

Amazon delivered a Valve Index Knuckles and HTC SteamVR Base Station that I did not order but the label on the outside of the box was for my address.

What should I do with this hardware I’m not interested in?

Nature is fascinating.


On this holiday

I am thnakful for the job that I enjoy doing, even though it can be frustrating.
I am thankful for the fact that all of my necessities are met.

I am thankful.

Where do you buy your coffee from?

I used to have a subscribition but let that lapse because I wasn’t using it. Wondering where I should buy my next bag from.

There are so many good TV shows, movies, and books out in the world.

Does anyone else find it hard to start something new?

Paralysed by choice once you’ve completed the last thing?

These are simply fantastic.

Extremely well crafted and expertly edited. I love the whole series.

Wisdom to Heal the Earth

The child naively believes that everything should be fair and everyone should be honest, that only good should prevail, that everybody should have what they want and there should be no pain or sadness.The child believes the world should be perfect and is outraged to discover it is not.

Morning Routine

Coffee and RSS feeds.

Still working on getting tasks done in the morning, but I don’t feel like being personally productive in the morning. 📷 ☕️

Listening to Korn this afternoon and I’m reminding myself how much I enjoyed their music when I was younger.

I watched Dune for the 2nd time last night. I still think I need at least one more watch before I can express my true opinon of it as a movie.

Some quick thoughts on it:

  1. The world building needed was much too subtle
  2. The cinematography was goregeous
  3. The settings were fantastic

Instapaper Zero reached. Articles that I want to read and review have been migrated to a Read Later folder in Evernote.

Slowly, but steadily moving my digital stuff to Evernote so it’s all in one place continues.

I’ve been “testing” and/or trying to decide on a Read Later service since 2015.

Maybe it’s not that important to me. I think I’ll move everything into Evernote since that is what I’m using now.

Finally set up my desk so that I can plug my Pixelbook into my desktop mouse, keyboard, and monitor. It’s nice to be able to use the same setup at the desk and the couch and where ever I happen to be.
