It is always amazing to me how much emotional intelligence it must take to manage this type of marriage.

Did not finish: How High We Go in the Dark by Sequoia Nagamatsu 📚

Haunting and beautifully written but the topics are so heavy that I couldn’t finish it and keep my mental health where it needs to be atm. I will go back to it in the future as I love its deep curiosity on death and life.

@hollie You should probably add Leonard Nimoy’s The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins to the “don’t watch” list 😆

I’ve been wanting to try Dungeon Crawl Classics since I saw @heyloura talking about it. This bundle really does include “all the things” so to speak.

Help Feed Hungry Children with the DCC + MCC Megabundle!|Goodman Games

What’s the The DCC and MCC Megabundle 2? It’s an absolutely massive value — including a ton of DCC and MCC items that have never been available in a Bundle before! Opting for the entire 80 item bundle will yield not only dozens of amazing DCC and MCC PDF modules, supplements, player aids — even core rulebooks — but also a physical copy of the MCC RPG Softcover Rulebook!

The series keeps rolling and i continue to love it. However, this is the last one narrated by Rosamund Pike. I’ve sampled book four and I can’t bring myself to start it. The audio quality between the two hurts my ears. I’ll get to it eventually.

The Halo TV show making the humans the villains completely misses the point "It’s become increasingly clear that the Halo TV show has a villain problem. This may seem impossible for a series that’s supposed to be about a hostile race of aliens led by liars who exploit religious fanaticism, but instead the show can’t stop focusing on human bickering, bizarrely relegating the galaxy-conquering aliens to an afterthought for both the characters in the show and the audience." The enshittification of one of my favorite stories continues. I tried to watch a recent episode with my 14 year old and when she ... 1upcoffee.com

The Halo show continues to go from bad to worse. The show runners and producers don’t get the heart of the game’s story. It has devolved into a stupid human vs human drama instead of hope in the face of overwhelming odds.

@timapple Not a remake but based on the same book as the 80s show. They went all in on authenticity from cast to crew. First two episodes are stellar.

Ron was right about so many things.

Poorly lit picture frame with quote from fictional character Ron Swanson. It reads “There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”

This may be the most important leadership book I’ve read. I have a reviewer copy, it releases 4/2024. I’ll do a proper review, but if like me you have C-PTSD or a trauma background & are in leadership/management just preorder it now

Powerful, heartbreaking, and healing. If you have C-PTSD like I do I highly recommend it but proceed with caution. I found it deeply challenging and had to go slow.

@alexink I almost want s3 to be the end of the show. I say this as someone with a Mando and Grogu tattoo. The season just has a sense of closure to it like a good western might. That said bring on s4!

@Parag Agree with Denny. There is so much more that matters and this attitude, IMHO is part of the problem. We can’t even discuss our own very real, very critical faults on the left/Democratic Party. I long for more people to take our need for drastic improvement seriously. And yes I’m voting Biden. But damn. We are in serious trouble and cursing out those of us trying to improve things doesn’t help. Thanks for hearing this.

@manton I gotta be honest and say it makes me so uneasy that you don't know. I originally wrote a lengthy reply and it just felt like an unhelpful pile-on. What I would love is a Github Issues or Trello or something the Mb team points to and says "here are all the known issues with LInkblogging (or whatever feature) we haven't gotten to yet. If yours isn't on there, add it!"

Zeldman’s I am a creative hit a nerve with this nugget. The whole essay is worth your time. I definitely fall into the “I am a creative, not an artist” category.

I am a creative. Not an artist. Though I dreamed, as a lad, of someday being that. Some of us belittle our gifts and dislike ourselves because we are not Michelangelos and Warhols. That is narcissism—but at least we aren’t in politics.

Scavengers Reign is a stellar SF/survival show. The 13.5 year old & I watched 15m to see if it was good & binge watched all 12 episodes! Some gory moments, challenging adult-life themes, a bit of nudity so as always use your own judgement.

Pretty fun until the very end. The final felt like King had a bunch of unused ideas of how people might die in various ways and has the characters just tell them to each other because… context I guess.

@manton Would love to see a web based marketplace for Mb... themes, plugins etc... Mb feels "web first" already. Are the rules such that if an LLC ships to iOS that same LLC can't have an unsanctioned marketplace anywhere?

This is a question for a lawyer, not really expecting an answer. I am really curious how deep the claws go though.

@vincent Yeah, that’s true about Jobs admitting when they were wrong. I like how Tim fights for some cultural things I’m aligned with but that’s not the same thing. And at the end of the day they are a, what is it, three trillion dollars corporation? They don’t have our best interests in mind.

@vincent It is way to easy for me to forget just how cut-throat Steve Jobs was and how that still remains a major part of Apple's culture. They do a lot of truly amazing things but that ruthlessness has been there for decades and is currently on full display.
