been writing on another blog, ⚽️ news in & around Austin. it was kinda micro.blogged for a while, but not really working that way, so I think I’ll post them here, too:

Cal Newport on Social Media Misery

This insight on Social Media’s Shift Toward Misery explains a lot:

Modern social media, which largely displaced the individual feed model with the algorithmically-generated timeline, instead emphasizes passive content consumption, as the amount of times you can check on your friends in a given week is relatively small, while the time you can dedicate to content consumption is boundless.

I’ll be posting more soon, but this is a milestone bottle. It’s a style favored by the main character in the novel I’ve been working on. I bought it a little over a year ago, to drink when I’d “finished”. Well, guess what? 😁😅

…and if you wanted random wikiHow articles, as mentioned in that story, you wouldn’t need a browser plugin. you could just set their randomizer wiki link as your homepage: https://www.wikihow.com/Special:Randomizer

have never been a wikiHow user, but this story on the founder, the company, & their outlook defrosted my cynicism a little bit. “We’ve chosen… to spend all of our time in four big web properties. We didn’t have to do that, and we still don’t have to do that.”

In memory of John Michael Hammack, who helped me drink a bottle of this almost a year ago, and who we lost this week in a car crash. Rest in peace.

if I may: nansplaining (v) – explaining legal terms like “exculpatory” to the President, ideally at a televised press briefing

finished Fleabag season 2 tonight; what a masterpiece this show is. the sharp, quirky humor grabbed us from the start, but in the end it has everything. the drama, the characters, the originality, the continued humor, even the style (and how it evolves). just: wow. 📺

Except for not doing about 80 of my favorites, what a great show

Sleater-Kinney @ Moody Theater 🎵

this AirBnb scam happened to us this summer. contacted a few days before, told the unit we’d reserved was “condemned”(!), somehow they’d missed notifying us, but “luckily” he had another property. turned out to be in a bad part of town & not walkable to downtown
