…and if you wanted random wikiHow articles, as mentioned in that story, you wouldn’t need a browser plugin. you could just set their randomizer wiki link as your homepage: https://www.wikihow.com/Special:Randomizer

have never been a wikiHow user, but this story on the founder, the company, & their outlook defrosted my cynicism a little bit. “We’ve chosen… to spend all of our time in four big web properties. We didn’t have to do that, and we still don’t have to do that.”

In memory of John Michael Hammack, who helped me drink a bottle of this almost a year ago, and who we lost this week in a car crash. Rest in peace.

if I may: nansplaining (v) – explaining legal terms like “exculpatory” to the President, ideally at a televised press briefing

finished Fleabag season 2 tonight; what a masterpiece this show is. the sharp, quirky humor grabbed us from the start, but in the end it has everything. the drama, the characters, the originality, the continued humor, even the style (and how it evolves). just: wow. 📺

Except for not doing about 80 of my favorites, what a great show

Sleater-Kinney @ Moody Theater 🎵

this AirBnb scam happened to us this summer. contacted a few days before, told the unit we’d reserved was “condemned”(!), somehow they’d missed notifying us, but “luckily” he had another property. turned out to be in a bad part of town & not walkable to downtown

Metric @ ACL Festival, Zilker Park

October 12, another anniversary for the weirdest Unix command-line tips site you’ve never seen. a happy 6th to ye, Unicks Bestiary

“a corner of cognitive real estate occupied by this ongoing transaction” – this Cal Newport post, though about email, also explains why some Slack users are so frustrating to me. e.g., the ol’ ask-a-question-in-a-channel-and-then-disappear-for-an-hour trick

beautiful story of a successful author investing in his local community: Diary of a small town sensation: how the Wimpy Kid author built his dream bookshop

the masterminds of Thievery Corporation returned to Jamaican influences (and artists) on 2017’s The Temple of I & I, and it’s so good. recommended track: Letter to the Editor, featuring Racquel Jones (good video, too) 🎵

McSweeney’s: Dear Leaders of the World: Get Your Shit Together

It’s a hot mess & your policies are only making it hotter, so if you could stop burning the house down long enough for us to graduate into a world that isn’t a complete hellhole, that would be great.

just finished my first full book on the clever Serial Reader app (The Picture of Dorian Gray). there are lots of older & public-domain titles on my list, anyway, & I found the 10 to 20-minute chunks of reading each day fun & easy to stay on top of. recommended! 📚

another concert-related New Tunes Tuesday: the latest from Bleached, who I saw last night: Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough? I normally deduct a point for whistling, but “Hard to Kill” is such a good song, I’ll let it slide this time 🎵

hey it’s (New Tunes) Tuesday again already. since I’m seeing them live tomorrow night, how about the newest from Summer Cannibals, Can’t Tell Me No. for a standout track, let’s say the first one, False Anthem 🎵

McSweeney’s: We Need a Wizard Who Can Appeal to the Moderate Orc Voter

Of course, Saruman’s record isn’t perfect. He said at one time that Rings of Power were good for Elves. We know that’s an outdated attitude. But that was more than a thousand years ago.
