a really niche thing but I couldn’t figure it out for ages, until today! Smart Playlist rules are interpreted differently in the Mac and iOS Music apps. “genre is not classical”, for example, includes tracks with no genre specified on MacOS, but omits them on iOS!

local breweries are still open for beer-to-go, so I decided to do my part by supporting five of them (Adelbert’s, Austin Beerworks, Celis, 4th Tap, & Circle). Prost! ?

After waiting in line like shopping at HEB is an amusement park ride, I just couldn’t resist this name ?‍♂️?

Bandcamp Supporting Artists Affected by Pandemic – in which you’re encouraged to buy some great new music for yourself, and directly support musicians who can’t tour for a while ?

these free nightly opera streams from the Met are really good. bonus points for their app on Apple, Amazon, and Roku (no account or login needed, just select “free preview” to watch the day’s freebie in its entirety) ?

awakened before the alarm clock by our smoke detectors blaring for a few seconds. better at 6:00 than at 3:00 or 4:00, but being jolted from deep sleep like that is never how I want to start the day. it stopped as suddenly as it started. dust? a tiny spider, now deaf?

if you’re unhappy about the damage Senate Republicans are doing to our democracy, please consider doing something besides tweeting or blogging about it. sign up, pitch in $10, $25, or whatever you can. these nine deserve to pay the price in November.

Julia Ioffe says what I’ve wondered:

At any point during this process, Bolton could have just come forward and said what he knew. In front of the House, on TV, in an Op-Ed, anywhere. Instead, he’s doing what so many retiring Republicans do: the barest, coyest minimum to preserve a patina of credibility but without alienating the vast system of GOP money they rely on in retirement.

also I finished my most recent editing pass of my novel (and have had a few drinks) so I’ve put an invitation to read an early draft on my site, ok bye ?

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:

Austin Bold schedule, Austin FC ticket speculation, and USWNT coming to Texas – it’s 2020, and it’s Stoppage Time

First Third Thursday in the Writers’ League – in which I leave the safe confines of home, daring to venture out there and meet other real, live writer people
