When in Rome…

    When your mom orders fortune cookies from Amazon, but she’s partially blind and doesn’t actually read the whole description…

    Finally started watching, and caught up, on Monarch.

    I’m really enjoying the show, but I seriously hate the writing. It’s like a college screenwriting student wrote the dialogue.

    Is it just me, or am I right?

    How am I just now hearing about Bardcore?!

    That time that my friend and I were in the LA Times, talking about our aviation club…

    Of course the Tesla Holiday Update brings Apple Podcasts to the cars…right after I switch back to Overcast. 😂

    Playing around with Eleven Labs' speech synthesis, I made a trailer for a (not-so) new podcast, the StickWorld Podcast.

    I thought it was kind of fun…

    The new Beatles song, Now and Then, is gorgeous.

    It’s been a long time since a song moved me the way this did…for many reasons.

    Picked up a pair of AirPods Pro with the USB-C case.

    Gotta say…I love Adaptive Audio.

    It took me about an hour to get used to it, and now I don’t know how I can use any other headphones…

    Morning reflections over a nice, hot cup of Yorkshire Tea.

    Preseason between the San Jose Sharks and LA Kings (well, the Ontario Reign, the Kings AHL team, playing as the Kings for the preseason).

    It was weird seeing hockey in a different arena than Staples Center (I refuse to call it by its new name).

    Kings beat the Sharks 2-1 in a great OT period.

    RIP Tony Bennett.

    I was only 2 when this concert happened, but it was the reason I got into singer-led jazz.

    This video by MKBHD is a fascinating dive into how Apple markets its products without using “common” buzzwords.

    As a former Apple employee, I can safely say we find it annoying as well. 😏

    Beautiful day for Mets baseball. I’ve now seen them play in 8 parks around the country. Of course, they beat the A’s 3-2.

    It was a good day…

    Way more happy than I should be to have my <a href="//"" target="_blank" rel=“noopener”>Breville Oracle Touch back from repair.

    I almost forgot what a good cup of home brewed coffee tasted like.
