Finished Reading Incredible Doom Vol. 1. 📚 I took @sod’s recommendation and am very happy I did so. There’s so much to love in each drawn frame and the story is stellar. I’m anxiously waiting for the next volume.
In airports, I have never been a resident alien; I am a traveler, just like everyone else. I really love this comic by Shing Yin Khor.
I have today’s mood setter, Santigold’s “Run the Road”, playing loud. Windows open, volume up! 🎵
Things that grow in containers, sibsiding only off of what is given, provided, and falls their way by happenstance. Scheduled and pruned and measured, water, fertilizer, soil and the fauna that visit. Kept by their owners or ones that their owners pay to keep. They envy the weeds that grow nearby.
If you truly care about your content, quality and the way others experience it, why would you post it on a platform that covers it, destroys it, with advertisements? Every time I watch something on Youtube, one of the biggest culprits, I find myself asking, “is this the way this channel’s ‘creators’ really want us […]
Watched Tigertail (2020) 🎥 A beautiful story with excellent performances. This movie says a lot about the things left unsaid, stories untold, and actions never taken.
For me, success is not a public thing. It’s a private thing. It’s when you have fewer and fewer regrets. ~Toni Morrison
Multiculturalism is a grand, revolutionary concept. But I think its purpose is really simple. It is to live with each other without the fear of each other. ~Nyadol Nyuo
Our constant interaction on and with social media platforms has trained us into a hyper-transactional society. ~OM Malik Yep. ~Me
Watched Quigley Down Under (1990) 🎥 Scrolling through Netflix and my wife mentioned that she had never seen this movie before. Considering her love for 90s-era westerns (long live The Young Riders!) I knew she would appreciate this one. And she did. I think it’s common knowledge these days but, no one plays a bad […]
The physical chooses this direction towards movement spending energy While my emotional chooses this towards safety seeking comfort A battle of opposite directions means remaining in place for neither will win Wills are strong A compromise between them is progress perhaps away from both wills.
Some news from a friend has me thinking, and the lyrics of Regina Spektor’s “Firewood” seem fitting. Thus, today’s mood setter. 🎵
Ah! Just a couple days at work, this week, before heading into a (much needed) long weekend. So many things I want to wrap up! Thus, today’s mood setter is “Timebomb” by Beck. 🎵
This week, I’m grateful: for discovering new blogs, photographers, and writers. for the kindness a coworker showed me, still understanding that I am “new” and still onboarding me into the culture. for being able to immediately address a few site issues that came up at the beginning of the week (at work). and for ending […]
I need “flow” this week, so today’s mood setter is “Water” by Ra Ra Riot & Rostam. 🎵
A link, on the open internet, is a vote. It’s your way of saying, “this is great, and more people should know about it.” We talk about how much power the search engines have, but if you think about it, the search engines listen to us. They see what we link to, what we click, […]
A stands for anchor. The smallest HTML tag is the most powerful. Using the href attribute, the author of one web document can create a hypertext reference that will point to another resource. The author just needs to know the name of that resource (its URL) and can form a connection without asking for anyone’s […]
A perfectly lazy and relaxing Saturday, I think The Weather Station’s “Tried to Tell You” is today’s mood setter. 🎵
For the past few weeks I have been thinking about the words, photos, and everything else that I post online. And while there are many parts of “being online” that I enjoy, there are others that I now realize that I used to enjoy. And rather than simply stop participating in the things that I […]
Happy Friday! And here is today’s mood setter, Caro Emerald’s “Absolutely Me”. 🎵
