I went to a roller rink yesterday for their Wednesday disco night and it was so much fun! I don’t think I’ve roller skated since I was a kid, but I picked it up pretty quickly and got into a nice groove.

I’d like to recommend going roller skating!

Wish I could say the skates were mine, they felt brand new

Two months ago I transitioned from a wall-sized OLED, HDR, 4K TV to a $40 720p LCD TV. I love my little TV.

I bought these really wanting to use them but I’ve become so risk averse in my advanced years that I rarely put them on.

What helps me before putting on my blades is a dynamic stretch routine from head to toe. It becomes more important than wearing protection imo (although protection is great).

Thanks! I will try that.

There’s a genus of fungi that infects bananas called nigrospora. You can usually tell an infected banana by its flesh turning red and hard and dry from the placenta outward (meaning you can’t tell it’s present until you’ve peeled an infected fruit). This doesn’t make the banana inedible although it does ruin the experience.

I start every day with a banana, and the other day I bought some bananas infected with nigrospora. I fucking hate this garbage fungus.

Mokillo, moko, and blood disease bacterium are bacterial diseases that can also cause red discoloration in bananas.

I hate ralstonia too!!! I don’t want to start my morning with such bad vibes!!!!!!!!!

I’m trying to get a Raoul Dufy ceramic tile authenticated and the person in charge of his catalogue raisonné was either extremely annoyed or more French than I thought one person could be.

looks legit to me

Sadly it’s going to require a chemical analysis to see if the materials were used in that time period and location. Dufy is rife with forgeries and I have no provenance for this tile

It would be just like a French person to try to outdo oneself in Frenchness (while also acting performatively annoyed)

Also I am allegedly approximately 12-13/16ths French so I can say this

I’m the lead art director in a yet-to-be-disclosed game project. My client is on vacation in Ireland, and I was working from The Tropics.

Thought I’d mention it because for all the techno ick there is, this is one of those fleeting optimistic examples of the internet as we hoped it would be in the 90’s.

i’ve got some things to get off my chest!

  • i’ve been thinking of joining a baseball team for middle-aged fellas like myself.
  • for context, i’ve been thinking of trying a coffee place down the street for ~7 years.
  • user controls, the part of a user interface that the user uses to do things, should be static–not changing with context, not moving around.
  • i often think i should avoid any and all media made to make money, but i worry that i’ll miss out on stuff. lately, i wonder if it isn’t time i give up on getting anything out of commercial media.
  • hypertext is really cool, cooler than a lot of things.
  • i’ve been transferring my org file to a physical zettlekasten.
