I ocassionally get free #swag from Pen companies, this is a niceity that happened organically, in return I tell them what I think about their prodcts, Fact: most americans treat pens like something you get free at te bank, which is why most #pens for the US market pale in comparison to their #european or #japananese counterpart - I could talk forever on this topic, there's a #rant in there somewhere

Because I need constant (distraction/stimulation) I always have youtube or amazon or netflix playing on my laptop - been using Fenétre for a while for that - it's a floating menubar browser, which turns out is also really good for mastodon #mac #app #appstore #fenetre - seems like a decent solution (for me at least)
The seemingly obligatory intro:
I am #philly based, I’m a #designer, #developer, #illustrator, not always in that order, I do a little #improv, and have been considering doing some #standup, late at night I #bake and conjure up edible magic in my #foodlab - I’m loud, I’m obsessive and my middle name is #rant (seriously, it’s rant) oh and for comedic effect I bend the truth into the shape of a pretzel, not one of those NYC pretzels a philly pretzel - which if you didn’t know is mostly knot, Hi!
Been thinking a *lot* about the next 10 years of Indy Hall, and finally got some of those thoughts recorded during a podcast session with one of my fav local Philly shows.
The gist: I want to create some kind of apprenticeship program designed to help people find work that grants them freedom.
This includes reframing "entrepreneurship" as "creating a sustainable job for yourself FIRST" but it includes other career paths too (remote employment & other hybrids).
All based in Philly.
I don’t care what the internet says a ‘philly pizza’ is not a thing, if you put steak, onions, and peppers on a pizza what you have is two too many things on that pizza, contrary to what Papa Dominos Hut tells you, pizza is about (in this order) CRUST, sauce, cheese, wine - everything else is a crime against the crust
