Bach in the Woods

I don’t care that this is a commercial. Seeing this brought me no small amount of joy, and reminded me of the early Internet from maybe a decade ago. Just a lovely, lovely thing.

Drive and Listen

I’m reminded a bit of when Liz and I were in Amsterdam, and I took a long video of just street traffic. Because as a tourist, just watching the world go by is an amazing thing to behold. That’s true anywhere, honestly. Watching the world go by is an amazing experience anywhere. It’s just that we forget this fact until we travel, and remember it anew.

I love how folks are finding ways to collaborate together, even though we’re all pretty far apart. Amidst all the dark news and numbers, it’s nice to have this sort of thing that reminds me of how great the Internet can be, sometimes.

The Wire, Revisited

I started re-watching The Wire recently, and have mostly made my way through the first season. It started off while I was browsing for something to watch, and one episode turned into two and three, and we were off to the races. Again.

The phrase “melon buffet” now causes me to giggle a lot. It’s a silly premise, but with just one episode in… I’m finding myself wanting to see more. It strikes the right balance between silly and competitive for me.

Remembering Myst

I remember playing this game with my old house mate Jim, back when we were undergrads in college. It still definitely evokes a particular feel and time for me, and it was fascinating to hear some of the history and technical details related to the game.

How Jawbreakers are Made

As a child of the 80’s who grew up on Mr. Rogers, small wonder I’m a fan of these types of “how it’s made” videos. This stuff is fascinating to me, and I’m slowly realizing with growing concern/excitement that there’s a treasure trove of these types of videos on YouTube.

Who’s On First

During a meeting today, a random series of comments led to someone mentioning the classic Abbot and Costello routine: Who’s On First?. A few of us were familiar with it, a few were not. I threw out the phrase “I Don’t Know” in the hopes that someone would respond with “Third Base,” but sadly no one did. I tried to…
