Saint Arnold’s 25th Anniversary Grand Cru
🍻 ⚽️

laughing out loud at this new podcast: Two Girls World Cup, “an alternative take on the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup” indeed 😂 (the Total Soccer Show is another good one, as always, with their obsessively complete coverage) ⚽️

what an opener for the USA. I did want them to dominate Thailand, and boy did that wish come true. 😅 when the names of the goal scorers scrolled by at the end of the game, it looked like movie credits 🙈😆⚽️

The Bruery’s Or Xata

watched Phantom Menace tonight, planning to marathon them all before ep 9 comes out. and it is so bad. like, wow bad. bad writing, bad acting, bad… everything, actually. even having read this sympathetic account: nope. it is bad & I regret wasting 2 hours, 16 minutes on it

wow. long but devastating: Uber’s Path of Destruction

Despite massive funding from… institutional investors, Uber depicted itself as the innocent victim—in­trepid programmers facing overwhelming disadvantages in their battle with the “evil taxi cartel” & corrupt regulators

coffee made, first full day of international soccer at the World Cup ahead, what more could I want? ⚽️ first up: GER 🇩🇪 v CHN 🇨🇳

loved the opening sentence of this As a black teenager, I loved Morrissey. But heaven knows I’m miserable now:

Dear Morrissey, I’m writing this to say, in a gentle way, thank you but no.

also liked this pragmatic assessment: “I’ve no time for him but still a fan of the Smiths.”

equal parts psyched to have gotten a ticket for Sleater-Kinney in November, and to have done so by guessing the “fan pre-sale” code (it’s the name of the new single, all caps, all one word. I think it’s always that, ha ha)


Epic Brewing’s Brainless on Peaches

love seeing The Guardian provide thorough coverage of this year’s Women’s World Cup. their “Experts’ Network” is a clever way to publish good info while boosting smaller outlets, journalists, & bloggers, like the good folks at The Equalizer. ⚽️

Adelbert’s Flyin’ Monks

we’re go-getters this Memorial Day 🇺🇸

(2/2) “rede” is a good one but my favorite of those is “ruth”, “a feeling of sympathy and sorrow for the misfortunes of others”.

like an opposite of “ruthless”!

finally had the time & focus today to really dig in to The Fall of Gondolin, the latest (& last) from J.R.R./Christopher Tolkien. enjoyed looking up and learning some new (very old) words along the way. gems like:

  • ruth
  • meed
  • brake
  • astonied
  • rede
  • thence
  • fain

saw Detective Pikachu today, it was a lot of fun both for us parents (who know a few Pokémon names & that’s about it) and for the kids (who can probably both still recite full Pokédex entries). agree with this Ars Technica review 🎥

Unibroue’s Grand Réserve 17

gardening has been so hit or miss for us. plenty of little plants that just fizzle out, and then these squash plants that took off like Jack’s frickin’ beanstalk (also pictured: 2/3 of our strawberry harvest)

just finished Data and Goliath, by Bruce Schneier, for this month’s Austin Computer Book Club meetup. it was eye-opening and kind of horrifying, but pragmatic, interesting, and more timely with each passing day’s headlines 📚

UEFA Womens Champions League final just kicked off, Lyon v Barcelona, and it’s actually available to watch online! it’s streaming free on B/R Live, which I just found has a Roku channel, w00t ⚽️

a random thing I (very belatedly) realized after years of seriously watching soccer: women don’t get to swap jerseys after the game like men do. ugh. wonder if they can or do later, after the danger of corrupting and/or blinding everyone with their sports bras is past ⚽️

just about three weeks until kickoff, starting to think about schedules and time off during the World Cup! it took some searching around but I found what looks like a good, accurate iCal calendar with all the matches 😎 ⚽️

I’d planned to spend the whole day at work troubleshooting a couple of hairy database problems, only to have neither of them manifest again in the slightest. even when I want them to break, I can’t get computers to work 😕

having trouble finding good WordPress themes for a site. especially want good, lightweight styling for status/micro-posts. but searching for themes is hard due to aggressive SEO everywhere. anyone have any suggestions?

Megan Rapinoe is a ‘walking protest’

“I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it,” she continues. “Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not.
