I absolutely resent the fact that I have to pay for food to keep me alive.

I directed someone awesome in a comedy recording session today and holy crap was that ever a thing I needed to get back to doing.πŸŽ™οΈβ™₯️

humor, music, it says "fuck" a lot 

I don't know if this will ever get old for me

Celebrating by absorbing some wavelengths of light while reflecting others.

Walking through a store's Halloween displays recently, I realized that despite being one of those gothy nerds who digs horror stories, makes costumes, and generally geeks out on Halloween season, this year I'm just not in the mood to pretend things are scarier than they are.

I'm working on a couple more episodes of my podcast "Modern Technology Knows Your Name."

Things are objectively awful in the world, but at least there's still stuff like this mashup going on.

I had this great new innovative idea to make a picture of some pop-culture character but dressed up like some totally different pop-culture character, and sell t-shirts of it.

Dark Hackers sequel in which we find out that Dade has become the CISO of EvilCorp and has to be brought down by the next generation of hackers.

USpol, travel 

Friendly heads-up:

Expedited passport processing has been suspended as of 11 September 2020.

If you need to renew your passport you'll have to go to travel.state.gov and get onto the waiting list.

Does anyone maintain a list of marketplaces that are alternatives to the excessively greedy ones? Like, is there an Etsy-like that treats its artists/sellers better? What about a better t-shirt place than cafe press et al? And so on…

My new podcast about chosen names launched today! :flan_dance:​

modern.technology/name/

"Modern Technology Knows Your Name" starts off with my own naming stories (both of them) and goes on to feature stories contributed by other kind souls ready to throw in on this idea of mine. I'm very excited to see where this goes from here.

If you have a story you'd like to share about how you chose your own handle, screenname, nickname, or real-life name, get in touch!

My small crew of podcasting film dorks have completed the trilogy! Here's our Part III episode, with links to the first two BTTF episodes below. modern.technology/2020/09/08/m

I'm getting back to work on my project about self-chosen names and what they mean to us. An interesting podcast is taking shape covering people's stories about self-naming ranging from informal nicknames and online handles to legal name changes.

If you'd like to share why & how you named yourself, whether you wish to share via voice or text, whether it's a short or long story, please ping me. DMs open.

The one failed prediction that never ceases to crack me up is the (correct) prediction that text will be stored and read on handheld devices, but the failure to imagine that more than one thing could be stored per device. They were so close! The image of a desk or room just littered with ipads to signify a character doing a lot of research is absolutely hilarious. Here borrow this ipad it has my favorite book (singular) on it.
