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!
Spirit Halloween has released their first teaser video for this season’s props, which means it’s now Halloween. Happy Halloween!
Side project update: just bought a domain name for a new side project
I’m just realizing the lyrics to the Blue’s Clues theme song are:
‘Cause when we use our minds and take a step at a time
We can do anything that we wanna do
For 20(?) years I thought it was “take a step out of time,” which somehow described the supernatural ability of skidoo-ing into a picture, which was apparently always necessary to solve Blue’s puzzles. But now I understand that this is nothing.
Another banger from Ted Chiang: Will A.I. Become the New McKinsey?
