I have a fantasy hockey league that had two drop out from last season. It’s $40 to enter with payouts of $240/120/40 to top 3 teams. If interested, let me know and I will get you the details.

    Used the town-wide garage sale as a tool to get the bicycle out and prep it for the Ride for Roswell next weekend. Lots going on in Kenmore today!

    Seems as if Reeder got their Twitter access back. Getting flooded with those feeds now. After a brief skim, nothing of interest nor anything that would draw me back to using Twitter full time. Even if the stable tech genius wasn’t running the show.

    This year is turning into a pretty amazing one for concerts! Seeing for the first time: Thrice, Middle Kids, Digable Planets, Cat Power, Alvvays, Alex G; and again: Manchester Orchestra, Jimmy Eat World, Modest Mouse, Pixies, Broken Social Scene. All through the end of September.

    Keep fluctuating between thinking today is Tuesday / Wednesday. I am glad whenever I know it’s Wednesday though 😂

    And with that I’ve disabled cross-posting to Twitter. I’ve already stopped visiting/interacting with the site. Not sure I’m going to close it though, as I don’t want some Nazi taking over my handle since I use it everywhere else. Anyway, sorry for the political post. Back to the positive stuff! 😄

    So, you’re telling me the fake “absolute free speech” CEO / tech genius is propping up the fake “freedom” governor for president? Would NEVER have predicted that! (It was pretty much the plot of last week’s Succession episode, after all.) The end game for power and money is ALWAYS authoritarianism.

    My physical copy of Zelda doesn’t arrive until tomorrow. Might have to stay off the web for the next 24 hours. 😂

    Woke up to a 3.8 earthquake this AM. Unusual for our area! Worked better than our standard wake-up alarms. 😂

    This city has experienced far too much heartbreak in the last year.

    Buffalo storm prep update: local grocery stores cleared out — except pumpkin spice stuff. We aren’t that desperate yet.

    Bummed Turnstile and Snail Mail canceled tonight, due to our coming snowstorm. Time to prep I guess! ☃️

    My oldest friend Chris, aka Itinerant Printer, is having a massive sale on his amazing letterpress prints. Do check them out - I just grabbed three.

    Attempting to port the Hugo theme Congo for micro.blog. Stay tuned!

    What is “ecofascism” — and what does it have to do with the Buffalo shooting? - Salon.com

    A lot of people assume that if we teach people about climate change, they will want to create a world that is more just and peaceful.

    Watson was so tired after our hike today he didn’t even mind Chet sitting on his head. 😂

    Making pickled beet deviled eggs for brunch tomorrow, so I whipped up a pickled beet egg salad with the extras. Did 4 eggs, 4 beets, mayo, mustard and a dash of curry powder. So tasty!

    Was thinking through a web app idea, then realized it was pretty darn close to FriendFeed (which i loved) and upon doing more reminiscing, realized Micro.blog isn’t too far from FF. Just need the ability to subscribe to RSS feeds and other services beyond Mastodon.

    Finished reading: Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel 📚

    One season ends and another begins. Tryout week done and so thankful Zoey has finally landed in a good spot for hockey. Now for a couple week break and they are back at it!
