At the end of "The Social Dilemma," Netflix popped up recommended videos over the credits.

There's a long way to go, folks.

Soft launching a Society6 shop today.

I've been taking photos for the past two decades – it's something that has never left me, and I've never been able to shake it. I'm also thrilled with the idea of being able to share my work in different ways. So, starting with a collection of 15 of my favorite photos, I'll be "opening the vault" of my images here and elsewhere.

why do they call it "the arena corridor in which Nancy Kerrigan was attacked in 1994 by a baton-wielding assailant" and not the "rod/knee danger field" okay good night sorry good night

When I see someone with a mask with see-through mouth windows, I'm always reminded of Chatterer.

this just might be the coolest thing i have seen in my entire life

That feeling when you eat too many Triscuits without any water nearby and your throat clogs with shreds of wheat until you think you're going to choke... except the Triscuits are news and your throat is your soul.

Oh, I should add: the front of the card reads "FUNDS DO NOT EXPIRE."

With so many evil things in this world, perhaps it's overstating calling this evil, but at the very least it's a microevil:

A Verizon debit card purchased with rewards points that has $0 when I go to use it because of a "$4.95 monthly inactive fee" (barely legibly noted on the back in the creases behind the card numbers) that was charged while it sat on my desk waiting to be activated.

... aaaaand, today I got an email that my book has shipped. My order was literally un-cancelled (reloaded the order status page I had opened and the word "cancelled" disappeared).

So that wasn't a great first experience...

Ordered back on June 3, got my order confirmation but knew it would be a little while since it was a pre-order. Checked back today and the book is available, but my order was cancelled and I never received an email telling me so.

“America’s quietest routes”: The least travelled, most scenic routes in the U.S. Might be fun to drive this list some day

2.5 hours of music I dug in the second quarter of 2020. No references to the virus, but given that it covers April through June, the undercurrent is there, I guess. Ordered only by when I added each track.

Is Adobe Digital Editions the worst possible DRM for books because it just actively made me give up trying to download and read a file I have the rights to? Yes. Yes, it is.

And I've been meaning to ask this: is there a way to make a list of accounts (specifically bots) that I'd like to follow and read without having them in my main feed (which I'd like to reserve for humans)? It seems like a list can only be bots you follow and if you mute them from your main feed, they're also muted when you view a list with them in it.

It makes me sad when a bot I like stops working for no discernable reason.

Even in the era of covid-19, Nextdoor is still 25% posts about people who don't pick up their dog's poop.
