One of the many things I like about micro.blog is the lack of animated gifs in the timeline. I hope it stays this way.
📚 Finished a couple of Le Guin novels. Now on to the Philip Glass autobiography/memoir.
I’ve been using Feedbin for a couple of years. Just noticed that if you go into settings you can see a graphical representation of how often a feed updates. I’ve used that to unsubscribe from a lot of inactive sites and made my list much more manageable.
Just watched a really good history of the Sunset Strip. Lots of music and bad behaviour. When I visited in 2004 on holiday the place was deserted.
James Woods - there’s a good example of having to separate the work from the person.
I’ve never tried dictation on my phone before. Doing it right now and it seems to work flawlessly. Even with my Scottish accent and speaking at my usual rate of knots. I’m very impressed.
You can tell a new social network is maturing when you find discussions on the ins and outs of the musical career of Steven Wilson.
It’s time to turn off auto-renew for Evernote premium. I only use it for importing Kindle highlights from Clippings.io now and free is good enough for that.
🎵 I’ve been listening to this wonderful Norwegian band a lot recently. knekklectric.bandcamp.com
I can’t remember who posted about doing a morning sketch of their teacup/coffee mug but I’m going to do the same for all of February.
Bob’s Burgers is such a joy compared to lazy and cynical stuff like Family Guy. 📺
📚 How I Met My Wife. This old New Yorker piece makes me gruntled.
The Sunlit app seems fabulous already. I can see it replacing a couple of other things.
I bought this Japanese fountain pen years ago based entirely on its look. Unfortunately it’s too small in my hand to be used comfortably for any length of time so I just take it out now and again to gaze at it and make sure it still works.
I’ve started to read The Left Hand Of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. It’s a shame that her passing has finally spurred me into doing so. 📚
I hope the HomePod is a success but silly phrases like “the experience of moving to a Retina screen… for your ears” are not going to convince me to give up what I already have.
Rush: a band who sparked the teenage imagination like few others. Nice, fair, piece in The Guardian about the retirement of Rush.
Sunlit test. “View from the office” today.
