Languishing 

What if Milkshake Duck but too much?

Earworm 

Woke up with a way too detailed version of the song St. Elmo’s Fire stuck in my head. Does my brain need to remember the horn parts? I really need to grow up in a different era next time.

A bunch of Substack writers I admire just held a PR event for Facebook and I'm disappointed and I don't want to support their work anymore. Bleh. Makes me think access is bad, actually.

Nothing like that first afternoon coffee of DST to make you really despise DST.

Pitch: NFTs but instead of environment destroying blockchain they’re single press Franklin Mint coins with a QR code. Please send seed money via check.

Seveneves, not really spoiler 

I keep thinking about Markus's watch.

Personally I'm pretty ambivalent toward AMP. On paper, it is just "the web," and based on statements from its fiercest advocates at Google, they're really trying to save the web from itself.

Reading the details of the election lawsuits filed so far reminds me of the sovereign citizen conspiracy theory and the “paper terrorism” (en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_) tactic some have used to harass courts. The fringe is the party now. I hope there are consequences for these bad faith actions.

And may your Thursday be great as well Algorithm, Corporate!

I wrote a little love letter to GarageBand. Playing with that has been a fun anxiety-reducing activity: onfocus.com/2020/11/7945/copin

New Flickr photo (leaves, trees, fall, oregon, corvallis) 

More like _Stupid_ Standard Time, amirite?

Yeah, I’m wearing Christmas themed bigfoot socks so I guess you can start listening to that Sufjan Stevens album now WTH.
