There is a motif in the score for Droomvlucht that sounds like the America’s Funniest Videos theme song.
Another visit to The Met, another gallery I’ve never seen before! This time it was 106 in the Egyptian wing which is very modest but includes a cool old-ass wooden door
I know this is problematic but I’m always disappointed when a yellow cab driver in New York City uses an app for turn-by-turn directions
I only got a couple months into a daily journal using Obsidian last year but since the start of 2024 I’m trying again. Additionally, this year I’m trying to start each entry with a short summary of the day. That way it’s a little easier to add something every day, and hopefully at the end of the year I can pull all those single lines into a big-but-not-indigestible view of the year as a whole. But also since I usually can’t summarize the day before it’s begun, most entries start with “TODO” and then I’m going back and updating them the following morning. (
⌘T to jump to Today’s journal entry and
⌘Y to jump to Yesterday, or technically the day before the current entry, are really helpful here.)
It’s hard to find any information on the web about Byte, the app that Dom Hoffman and co. created as a successor to Vine in 2018. It’s apparently impossible to find any information on the web about Byte, the app that Dom Hoffman and co. created as a successor to Hypercard in 2015. I really loved the latter and wish I could revisit some of those creations!
For those of you who chart the weather by my watch band: I switched from nylon to leather today so now it is cold
Just booked a stay at Efteling hell yeah
A truly astounding UX oversight that one can search “Star Wars bar” in the Disneyland app and Oga’s Cantina is not among the results. (I remembered that it was called “Oga’s Cantina” as I was typing this.)
The other day I was a bar and a strange approached me. He asked, “Are you Paul Rust?” I said no. He smiled and put his hand out for a shake and said “I’m a big fan, just finished the series, loved it.” I said “No, I’m not Paul Rust.”
Did he think I was joking? Was he just rehearsing his big Paul Rust intro so hard that he didn’t hear my answer? Does Paul Rust famously deny his identity in public?
Cirque du Soleil is now on Roblox.
I started playing Hoplite last night and now I think I may never stop!
The flagrant consumerism in Roku City is frankly out of control
I just discovered that All Electronics is going out of business! I’ve never actually been here or purchased anything from them, but I enjoyed knowing they were there the next time I need a motor or a switch or a potentiometer or whatever. I’ll need to visit soon and snatch up everything that looks vaguely interesting.
Also, I’m really sad that I cannot find a brick-and-mortar store that compares to this place. All the reviews are like, “There’s no place like All Electronics!“
Inspired by Jeremy, I have disallowed Google crawling my personal website. I don’t expect this to change my life in any way, except that it feels nice in this exact moment. I would say goodbye to Google but they wouldn’t see it lol
The newest addition to my bag of tricks in trying to get people away from Figma: The New CSS by Matthias Ott. No design tool can accurately capture what is possible in a browser better than the technologies the browser offers us!
