Relay friends just received our annual @RecDiffs member episode. No spoilers, but the special guest this year is a handsome English podtrepreneur with a disused MEGA STUDIO who wouldn't mind if you ordered a notebook. Grab a torch and point your lorry at
@hotdogsladies @darth This is not the greatest playlist in the world, no. This is just a tribute! ( Music mirror)…

🎧 New Playlist: "Pretty Maids" These are runs of two to four consecutive album tracks that rule. If you play the first song, you must play the rest. I do not, as@darthh says, make the rules.…V

Benny Johnson's Ted Talk is the cringiest thing I've ever seen.

70-minute documentary on the e04 Jawa actors. Where are they now, and how weird was it to be a tween, a little person, or both on a movie set in a Tunisian desert?…
Remake "Mannequin" but it's about an incel who thinks he's in a romantic comedy.

If, at some point, you fell off the Weezer train (happens to the best of us), do check this out. Playing their very good latest album with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Stick around for some revisited classics at the end.…
I see a lot of people making fun of this but I'd like to see how YOU would do if you randomly wandered onstage during a party you weren't invited to and had to make up a bunch of shit about how you were actually going to be president again very soon.…

I know what you're thinking. It's—like…mmmm—20 seconds too long, right? Problem is, find 20 seconds that don't belong in the song. You can't. They all matter. Every goddamned measure is a load-bearing wall.
"I Can't Take It" is a deeply under-appreciated power pop classic. It is without flaw.…
Like The Police ~3 years later, it'd be difficult to explain how impossibly cool Cheap Trick were in 1977. They were KISS to nerds, The Beatles to tweens, and possibly the apotheosis of heavy arena pop. Exquisite.…
When played live, "Hello There" must always be immediately followed by "Come On, Come On." CASE CLOSE…
Which if, as they say, were true, might maybe be kind of a big deal.
A certain sort of cynical person might read this, peer between the lines, and infer that a person whose sentence was commuted also has access to persons who can strongly influence the exercise of a President’s unique powers in exchange for things.…
Everything changed today. I found the Companion plugin for the regular Stream Deck app. This is…wow. Maybe five people will see this, and jaws will drop.…
Don't worry: you’re not in trouble. If you listen to any of my shows or back any of my projects, you've helped me become a better person. I'm able to focus on mental health because people sometimes like the stuff I make. I couldn't be more grateful.

I haven't spent a ton of time on Substack, but it seems kinda like if Lyle Lanley had persuaded Springfield they should pay him to receive lots of emails about money from Mr. Burns.
Today is the 20th anniversary of the release of Mac OS X 10.0. If you'd like to look back at my writing on the subject, here's a collection of links:…

Any time someone with way more money than you offers you some money, it's likely because they think you can help them make even way more money than you. Avoid strangers who want to ruin your thing.…
Such a great distillation of how there’s more to “getting back to normal” than it appears by @hotdogsladies. I’d been wondering why I’m hitting a burnout wall after (relatively speaking) holding it together for so long and I think the prospect of clearing this hill is part of it.

The weird pan from right to left is the second-best part.
Improbably, this is weirdly a good @RoderickOn to start with. It will not be easy, but the good things rarely are. Just let it wash over you. Take our Nantucket Sleigh Ride.

I'd be way more into blockchain if it provided a trail for demonstrating you cared this much about literally anything 36 hours ago. The arbitrage of brand management would be way more fun if it cost just…something.
The world-building in s01e01 of Handmaid's Tale is still just miraculous.
