Updated my About page. I find it hard to write about myself. I don’t know if it’s out of humbleness or just not being very self-reflective.

I feel a lot of people enjoyed Ted Lasso, but I don’t feel that I’m going to miss it a year from now. The last season was kind of hit or miss. I could watch the first season again and then just stop there.

RE: On Micro.blog, Scribbles, And Multi-homing by Leon Mika

I’ve recently read this article by Leon Mika on his MicroBlog. It goes a little bit into the details of where he wants his writing to go. I’ve met people through the Micro.blog and it is notable when I see them post about other blog services that they are trying out.

Profile of Leon MikaI’ve been ask why I’m using Scribbles given that I’m here on Micro.blog. Honestly I wish I could say I’ve got a great answer.

Leon starts his piece with honesty and follows it with thoughtful reasons.

I’ve also wondered why others are exploring the multiple solutions to building and maintaining a blog. After having years where there were only a couple of solutions, I don’t fault anyone for wanting to explore and see different options.

Having different blogs to express different aspects of your personality and interest does make sense. And, Leon makes it clear that he’s prioritizing his most important reader, himself. On this point, I really applaud him.

Finished reading: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson 📚

And by “Finished”, I mean I put it down after the second chapter. The title captures your imagination but it really felt like it was relying on that too much and then began complaining about what’s wrong with the world.

Another reason, I should go to Joe’s Front End Study Hall.

I’m planning on going to Front End Study Hall on April 24, 2024 Noon PST.

I've seen Joe a couple times in some of the IndieWeb meet ups and he always seemed like a cool person to me.

The description of the meet up is as follows:

If you're a maven of markup or stylesheet superstar, or a newbie novice with nth-of-type, all are welcome to learn together at Front End Study Hall

The foundation of a flexible, good IndieWeb website is markup (the “M” in HTML!") that doesn’t drive you batty to debug and CSS that works with it to have it look, sound, and interact how you want, whatever device or format the website is displayed on.

🍿 Dune (2021) - ★★★★☆

I really enjoyed this movie. It definitely deserved to have a sequel. That being said, I wouldn't take the time to watch it again by myself.

It’s phenomenal views and a cast of characters and actors that kept me entertained and following along with the plot. I really think they did a good job in showing what Paul and his family is going through and not relying on narration.

If I have all this praise, you maybe wondering why I didn’t rate it higher. Well, it comes down to the fact that the movie doesn’t completely standalone. I watched it knowing there was going to be a sequel. Unfortunately, I thought “Will modern audiences be ok with the movie ending where it did? Will I be ok with it?”.

I find myself bumping this up a star while writing this review because this movie did something. It brought me and my family closer together. We all saw it and then made plans to see the sequel.

So, I suggest you go see it too, but be aware that it will be the setup to something bigger.
