I had a killer TypeShift Daily Puzzle streak going, like 22 days, and then I lost track of it over the long weekend.
I guess it’s cool that I wasn’t buried in my phone over the holiday?
Still definitely recommend the game. It scratches the crossword puzzle itch just enough.
Summer is coming to a close and we have fresh picks for your ears, Vince Staples (6:24), Cornetto Trilogy (9:37), Garmin Vívosmart HR (12:20), “South Pacific (Sawmills Session) The Verve (16:27), Forever Summer Fest (24:14) and The Get Down (30:35).
I thought this was a very interesting episode of Startup, Gimlet media’s pilot podcast. The people steering that ship are all ex-NPR folks so they come from a place over super-produced shows. It makes a difference. The hard work they put in makes for an exceedingly listenable experience.
I took that episode to heart when I sat down to edit the most recent episode of Safe As Milk. I tried to streamline the talky parts and got extra-fiddly with the music breaks. I think it sounds really good. It would have been even better if I had uploaded the correct episode on the first try. It was a special kind of panic when I was driving and popped the new episode on over the stereo…and heard the beginning of the raw audio file I worked from.
Over two hours of work tinkering with edits and I drop the ball by uploading the wrong damn file. [barf emoji]
(And I’m also testing the iOS configuration of my WordPress app (looks like it works))
Alto’s Adventure is a new iOS buzz game that has me has me plenty hooked. I can’t think of a better description than the “the gameplay of Ski Safari with the looks of Monument Valley“. I enjoyed both of those games very much.
Rangers advance to the Conference Finals behind a dominant performance by Henrik Lundqvist. I’m just a casual hockey fan but it’s awesome to see the Rangers doing well. Might have to break out the old Messier jersey if they keep this up.
I have a deep love for almost all of the Pixies catalog. Seeing them live was definitely a bucket-list moment, even if it was only most of them. I swear, I could listen to Black Francis scream all day.
They played their handful of new songs but not at the expense of what we were all there to hear. The next morning my ears were still hissing and my voice was hoarse from singing along. It was great.
Man-o-man it’s cold out there. I try (and fail) not to cry too much about the weather but this is just too much.
Little car was verrrry reluctant to turn over this morning.
I don’t think it will last long. The people that own the building have been super-quick to cover anything that goes up.
