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

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

Wrote a little summary of my takeaways from reading Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman: mindfultasks.com/finitude-…

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

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. πŸ˜‚

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.

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!

Thanks to the suggestion from @alans, I now have a sync setup on Spotify to copy over my Apple Music song-a-day project. There are now two options: Spotify and Apple Music. Enjoy!

One thing I’ve been doing this year, that I absolutely love, is adding one song to a playlist every day. We’ve listened on a few road trips and it sparks so many good memories. It’s pretty amazing. Follow along if you are interested!

Two new favorite recent releases: the self-titled album by Plosivs (Listen) (ex Pinback, Drive Like Jehu, and Against Me) and sore thumb by Oso Oso (Listen).

Moved over a few more posts and my domain (back) to micro.blog. Good to be back with such a great community!

Earlier this week I posted the latest issue of One Last Wish, my regular look at an album or two that shaped my life. This issue we are in 1993. My picks: Fugazi’s In on the Kill Taker and Quicksand’s Slip .

On a hot streak! Hain’s Point is now at 2022.1.8 – just loaded to Github with support for the Reply by Email plugin. I added a setting to enable it in the theme (once the plugin is installed), since not everyone will want it. See the readme for more!

Hain’s Point is available in the Micro.blog plugins section for all users! Details on the theme and install instructions here. My site is using the plugin-based theme. Note: the Photos page is unsupported at this time, until I can troubleshoot that more. Feedback/ideas welcome!

Mail day! Dischord’s first six records box set arrived. Worth the wait.
