My Eternals Review

This is was long and had occasional pacing issues but I’m SO GLAD I finally got to see it and on the big screen!

As someone who loves storytelling and world-building and who grew up as a HUGE mythology geek, I really liked this!

Looking forward to seeing some of these characters again!!!

Happy 10th Birthday to ‘The Verge’

Happy first decade to The Verge, arguably one of the most important tech media publication of the past decade!

I remember how innovative they were from the very start!

”The Verge predates Alexa and the entire concept of Netflix original programming. We are older than Google Photos, Timehop, and Peloton; we launched with a glossy story on the first Nest thermostat. The very first Oculus VR prototype was shown to us in a Las Vegas parking lot. The Verge is older than Slack; we are about as old as movies in 4K. All of that in just 10 years.

Korean Movie night

One of the many perks living in Paris: I’ve got an all-you-can-eat pass to go to the cinema!

This evening I was planning an outing to an art house theater which was planning to show a 35mm screening of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance however their 35mm projector is down. So as a backup they’re showing The Host — which was also in my list…

Absolutely loved reading @LaurenzCollins’ feature piece about @OmarSy (@Netflix’s #Lupin) in @NewYorker. It’s about the actor, the show, but also so much more about French society and modern history today!

The immediate follow-up for me now is to think about Micro.blog vs DayOne vs Tumblr (also an Automattic acquisition)

For the use that I personally have, all of these have inter-connections…

Trying to think about what would be the simplest/cheapest and overall best way to set up an automated newsletter whenever I post something on Micro.blog 🤔

Maybe something based on the RSS feed of my “Life” category to keep up with friends & family…
