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…

Mood: > Fate fell short this time > Your smile fades in the summer > Place your hand in mine > I’ll leave when I wanna

This resonates heavily!

“Stop looking for a place you fit in. The world I’ve created for myself, the friends that I have, that’s my world. There’s not another country or place to go to. I accept being different, and I enjoy it.”

People who have known me for over 5 years know of my love of indie publications! Stoked to have supported @CourierMedia for years and even more so since @DanielGiaco joined!

Thank you @laurenzcollins — I’ve been so flabbergasted by this monstrosity!

If we could at least not call these ‘tacos’, everything would be better in the world 😅🌯

Been listening to my pop punk staples for the past week and it’s legitimately helped with my mental health!

Fall Out Boy, MCR, Simple Plan, Blink, Green Day, Sun 41, where my pop punk squad at?!

No joke, I’ve been listening to this podcast since I was 13-15, about 15 years ago!

Still one of my favorite shows to listen to today!

Anyone else had their formative Internet years on Tumblr? 🙋🏻‍♂️

(Along with MySpace and early years FB/Twitter)

Truly a historic day! Almost time to party and breathe a collective sigh of relief! 🎉 🇺🇸 🥲

The NHL is almost back so here’s a good opportunity to share one of my favorite things of all time: watching hockey games in Canadian French

It makes sense considering the history but I didn’t know it was possible until I discovered it last year!

I feel seen: have had to go through these hoops since 2009 so it felt nice to see an acknowledgment that immigrants have always had to deal with technology to keep up with family back home!

Years after @danielgiaco recommended it to me in person, I’ve finally read ”All That Man Is” by David Szalay.

An introspective read for me, as I get closer to 30 years old and wrap up the year just before taking a break fir the holidays

SNKRS: “A process that delivers both heartache and joy at proportions probably only mirrored by the New York Knicks and their dedicated fanbase.”

Lol:

They moved to exotic locales to work through the pandemic in style. But now tax trouble, breakups and Covid guilt are setting in.

My @AppleMusic recommendations have been incredibly on-point lately! 🤩

Wow, the latest episode of @TedLasso had everything! Excitement, drama, and a soul crushing finish!

Can’t wait for more: this show is real!

Definitely a bit of a mindfuck but TENET was fantastic! Such great casting, music, cinematography and a complex story!

Office watching-party for #GoT! 🤘🏼 @spendesk 📺
