you know how a coupla years back, just as the Outrage Machine was really starting to hum, there was this orthogonal push to stop tweeting about your lunch, because nobody cares about your sandwich? that was the thing I loved best about Twitter: people sharing their most mundane, their most regular experiences. It's like a warm blanket, mercifully free of judgement and outrage. I'm no Buddhist, but I really dig the concept of the sacredness of the every day.

I had grilled cheese with bacon, btw.

Road trip coming up, so you know what that means.


What are your must-have tunes for long drives?

cleaned up the workspace a bit so I could squeeze in my personal laptop and external cd ripper. I have several box sets to rip to FLAC that automatic-ripping-machine and plex had real trouble with, so I'm firing up Ye Olde XLD.

had a dream last night a professional wrestling bout went bad because they filled the ring with bees but the bees didn't stay in the ring.

Spending an evening with my brand new Meze Classics. In many ways these are the polar opposite of my grado SR80s -- closed not open, wood not plastic, punchy bass not sparkly tops. They're refreshing and exciting to listen to and I promise not to go all audiophile nerd horseshit about it but I really really like them. 🎧

Somehow I have lost an entire cardboard box of random networking flotsam, including a half-dozen raspberry pi from a million years ago. Now I'm wondering if I donated it all and forgot? but that seems unlikely because I never would have done that without wiping the sd cards and I know I haven't done that lately.

...what have you done, chili.

most days I don't play Street Fighter II until my thumb is puffy and my neck is sore but then most days aren't days like today so

People are asking a lot of questions about my mug that are already answered by my mug

this time was a me trying to do a dirty pour with resin colored with different pigments instead of with blobs of various inks. i like how they look when they don't land on the big green blob on one side :D

The boys has forgotten that lego was fun so I had to remind them.

Be a build/release engineer, they said. You'll add value, they said. (I haven't been a build/release engineer in something like 10 years but this is as true today as it was then.)

Am I crazy to be considering an ipad pro/air with working copy, blink/mosh and libterm or a-shell for occasional vim/python hacking?

There's something very windows 3.1 screensaver about this mandolin packaging.

It was looking dire for a while, but they randomly slowed the hydra with a Wand of Wonder, eliminating 7 of 8 attacks per round, and then the cleric's pet couatl (don't ask) bit it, poisoning it and knocking it unconscious. All in all a great encounter with lots of fun moments, but I realized too late that I had designed a single creature that ran like a horde. :D

Friday was D&D night. We hadn't had a serious combat encounter for a while and the party had just leveled so I wanted this one to be a biggun. They were traipsing around the Feywild and went to the Laughing Swamp, a region with a lair effect similar to Tasha's Hideous Laughter. I put a modified hydra in the middle of it guarding the maguffin blackberries they were after:

At one point I was rolling 8 saves and 8 attacks per round! madness.

Ran the boys though their first young green dragon encounter today. nerfed the breath weapon to half dmg and didn't recharge it after the first use, and gave their druid NPC friend call lightning so their party of 4th level adventurers could take it down.

In the adventure if you reduce it to half HP it'll flee but the breath weapon is 12d6; hovering 15ft over them doing ~36 avg damage I would have easily TPKed in the first round. Seems wildly imbalanced for a starter adventure.
