Still thinking about the Barry finale… I have no idea where the story goes from here, but I can’t wait to find out!
Installed an RGB bulb with RF control in my pool to be the primary light. Was a little effort, but totally worth it! Makes my late night soaks even more relaxing.
Hoo hoo hoo, the season finale of Barry was epic. Bill Hader directed the episode, and absolutely nailed it. 👏🏻
Finished Stranger Things 4: Vol. 1 today. The first half of Vol. 1 was difficult for me to get through, but the back half returned to the form of prior seasons, with a focus on characters. Happy I stuck with it! The reveal was 🤩
In case you can’t tell, I love my kids. A lot. Which is cool, because basically every other child makes me want to launch myself into the sun.
I also just spent 15 minutes FaceTiming with Colette. She shared her iPad screen with me to show me all of the fun design elements for her bedroom redesign. She’s got *opinions* y’all. Design opinions are in her blood.
William and I have been in the desert without Lacey, Colette, and the pups, and its been special. We’ve BBQ’d some ribs, played video games, done lots of swimming in the pool, ordered pizza, watched Obi-Wan, and invented pool games.
Subodh from “Love on the Spectrum” is my favorite. What a joyful soul. I hope he finds love and lives forever making the world better.
I really don’t want to wake up at 6 AM for Monaco tomorrow, but I also don’t want to get spoiled for the result. Stupid round, spinning planet.
Had the opportunity to teach coworkers about origami today, and it was a blast. We made a lotus flower, a balloon, and a crane. Such a nice way to relax the mind.
May 24th is making it pretty challenging to sleep. It’s all hitting me now, and I’m just profoundly sad. We are living in a time when preserving a made-up “individual right” to own murder machines is prioritized over preserving the literal right of autonomy of body and mind.
Shoresey is absolute perfection.
Did a little cleanup on my website today. Health data syncing is back up and running and I have updated my profile info, photo, and the site background. One of these days I’ll find time to do a full overhaul.
My AVR selection process went in a direction I didn’t expect. I’ve ordered a Pioneer Elite VSX-LX305. It has all of the features I need at the best price of all the options I considered. Excited! 🔊
My solar power system is being installed today at my home in the desert. Really excited to see the impact! Now I just need to make it through a workday with intermittent power and lots of hammering 🤣
Of *course* Onkyo filed for bankruptcy like last week. So… Denon? I dunno.
Okay, I think I’ve settled on the Onkyo TX-RZ50. Supports 5.1.4, has great room correction, and is supposed to have a very “un-opinionated” and true-to-source sound. Now the issue is that its sold out everywhere… blast!
Oh, for context I am planning on a 5.1.4 setup, so I likely need a receiver with a lot of channels, Atmos support, and I’d also like room correction.
Renovation is under way at the LA house. Excited about the home theater! I have my new projector and screen, with new speakers on order. Next up is the A/V receiver. Any recommendations?
Got some silicone cases for our Apple TV remotes that have a spot for an AirTag. No more lost remotes! It still shocks me that it’s not a built-in feature…
Blue Crab Benedict FTW.
I recently acquired a solar powered robot pool skimmer called a “Betta 2.” Impressed so far! Crystal clear water, no fuss. We have named him “Principal Skimmer.”
Wow, an instant classic episode of Survivor! One of the best in the series.
Human rights are universal. “Leave it to the states” is a ludicrous position.
The last few weeks have really driven home for me just how problematic “states rights” people can be. Anything goes and if you don’t like it just pick a different state!
It would be super cool if the Micro.blog client was embedded directly into NetNewsWire as an option, with the ability to post and reply.
RIP, iPod. End of an era!
I see the trailer for Westworld season four leaked. I’m having a hard time caring. The first season was a blast, and it really hasn’t been the same since. I think I’ll await reviews.
Living in a house while it’s being renovated is just as enjoyable as I remembered.
I discovered RSSHub this weekend. Great little open source web service that is easy to self-host, and lets you get RSS feeds for all sorts of services that don’t provide them natively. https://docs.rsshub.app/en/
Today, my pug Miles has made me believe that the devil is real. Mischief level one billion.
Y’all, I missed NoHo Hank so much more than I thought. #Barry
While we'll never be able to recreate and recapture precisely what Twitter is (was?), I do think that the best option for most people looking for community, a great place to post and read content, ease of use, and appropriate moderation, check out Micro.blog.
Hello, micro.blog friends! I needed to update microgram and micromemories for technical reasons (moving from Python 3.6 to Python 3.9 runtimes on AWS Lambda because of deprecation). Let me know if you have issues!
Had a scary power surge in the house last night that blew several surge protectors. One of the SPs blew so violently that it flew across the room and was smoking. Change your surge protectors every two years! Get a nice UPS or three!
Took the plunge and got a season ticket package for the Hollywood Bowl for 2022. So excited to go back! It’s been far too long.
🚁 Time for a helicopter tour of Kauai!
🏈 🐏 SUPER BOWL CHAMPS 🐏 🏈
Almost caught up on The Righteous Gemstones and am absolutely loving it. One of the funniest shows on TV in quite a long time!
Ben, I was actually looking for exactly the same thing back at DreamHost. I looked at a lot of options, and most of the best ones were commercial. That said, I had some luck with the P2 platform from Automattic that runs on WordPress - https://wordpress.com/p2/
