I just heard a commercial for the BET Awards using Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” in the background a, which I take as an indication Drake wasn’t invited.

In games 4-6, the Oilers have outscored the Panthers 18-5. Just unreal.

We have a game 7 on Monday. 🏒

903/1000. Midsummer cat. So I learned a few things about lenses today as I tried to shoot some Midsommar celebrations on my M-mount Zeiss C Sonnar f1,5/50mm ZM lens, adapted to my Sony. It brought a purple fringed chromatic aberration horror to eve

Got the turntable going. I’m using the app Quanta to stream to my HomePod mini.

I picked up an iPad folio case this past week. This would be the first time in a long time I’ve allowed an iPad to lay flat on my desk and I’m really getting digital piece of paper vibes with it.

900/1000. Looking back. I was hoping to get something special for day 900, and I did, I got sick. So here’s a rear view mirror I shot in a daze instead. Bonus points if you can guess the make of the car.

@pratik I tried it before, but, I found the glare to be too much for me. Especially on hazy days. So, I bought some tinted window film for about $20 and it does the trick for me. I tend to forget about the room behind me with this setup, which is nice in a way.

So, I’ve totally bailed on going to the College World Series to watch Florida tonight. Tickets are at $75 for the cheapest seats and we are now under a tornado watch. Two things are seemingly inevitable during CWS week. Extreme heat and severe weather. And here we are.

A few days ago, I moved my desk to in front of the window. Being able to glance out at a thunderstorm rolling by is definitely a perk.

@lukemperez Possible, though the photos I've seen of the B-21 have the craft painted grey. But, the Air Force connection fits out here. No mention online of them being stationed at Offutt. However, there was a visit from a command chief from San Antonio yesterday.

@manton I feel like if you need a break from the timeline, posting with Ulysses, iAWriter, or any of the other great options out there is the way to go, as opposed to posting from the Micro.blog app/website itself. I’ve seen more than enough talk on here about digital detoxes to know it’s a practice folks here know how to get into. I agree plenty of that will be necessary for some.

@bloftin2 Griffey was finding a way to move it around his mouth, so, it would end up under his gums. He’d easily discharge it from there. He’s anemic, so, he has to have this medication.

@pratik Although, I did realize today the only way to restore an iPhone with a previous iOS build is with a Mac or a visit to the Apple Store. That is a specific case, however.

Honestly, what I want is for the basic stuff to come over. Mail rules in Mail, smart folders in Files, smart playlists and the ability to create folders in Music.
