I’ve never seen this data detector before. On iOS 17 it recognized I was being asked for a photo, so clicking on “picture” opens the photo picker. Nice!

🍿 Just watched: Flora and Son on Apple TV+

Movie poster showing a profile of a woman juxtaposed with pink silhouette. Review for Flora and Son (2023 - directed by John Carney) It’s hard to say what exactly I thought about this movie. Some parts were tough to watch. The ending resolved a little too easily. Loved the description of music throughout. Characters were overall quite believable. I liked seeing a parent nurture their kid’s interest without judgement (even if they were kind of shit at the rest of parenting). One thumb up.

🍿 Just watched: Sharper on Apple TV+

Review for Sharper (2023, directed by Benjamin Caron) movie: Hey, so it turns out this movie is pretty darn good. Great acting, compelling characters, intriguing storyline. Had no idea it was an A24 film until I gave it a shot tonight. Perfect? No. But if you like twists and turns, this one’s for you. Loved it!

Do your imperfect best every day to learn about other people’s struggles. Listen to your friends who are POC or LGBT. Listen to your mom, wife, daughter and female co-workers.

You know that sinking feeling you get when you know something bad is about to happen? Supreme Court Rules That Presidents Have Absolute Immunity for “Core Constitutional Powers” From Justice Sotomayor’s dissent: "Let the President violate the law, let him exploit the trappings of his office for personal gain, let him use his official power for evil ends. Because if he knew that he may one day face liability for breaking the law, he might not be as bold and fearless as we would like him to be. That is the majority’s message today.

🔗 I am adamantly opposed to urgency // Annie Mueller // anniemueller.com

I need to shower, start laundry, do chores, start work, get the day moving forward. Where is the pause button? I’m competent and I can do so much but I don’t want so much to do. I want to sit here longer, to move unhurried, to glide, to breathe, to be ordered but not scheduled, to release into reverie, to let my mind wander, my shoulders loosen, my being melt and flow with curiosity, delight, warmth, ease.

Preach it, Annie.

@Mtt It's something about how Drafts passes things into the shortcut. Even when it's blank, I think it tries to pass blank text to the shortcut, which isn't compatible with the Uploader.

@Mtt I've found running shortcuts via Drafts actions to be tricky. In fact, I made a specific action and helper shortcut to get it to work. Maybe try those?

I love release notes that make me chuckle. 🤭

A Strava app update prompt shows an orange icon and describes the new ‘dark mode’ feature, encouraging users to switch for eye comfort. Text reads: “Strava: Run, Bike, Hike Today It’s been 84 years, but dark mode is finally here. Switch your Strava app to a dark color scheme and embrace the dark side. Your eyeballs will thank you.

Where do you fall on the spectrum from Over-sharing to Under-sharing? For me, the amount I want share seems to depend entirely on (1) How comfy I feel in my current “situation”, and (2) If I’m in that sweet spot of buzzed-but-not-quite-drunk-yet. Guess which ones I’m at now.

Woof. Lots of news happening. Might need to take a couple days off the internet and check back in when tempers have subsided. Haven’t felt that need in, well, about four years. Folks are (understandably) riled up, but it’s bumming me out. Good luck out there.
