Grocery Stores on Instagram

For some reason, whenever I’m at the grocery store, I can’t help but take pictures.   A photo posted by @notcuriousanymore on Jun 19, 2015 at 4:57pm PDT A photo posted by @notcuriousanymore on Jun 12, 2015 at 12:02pm PDT A photo posted by @notcuriousanymore on Jun 6, 2015 at 12:57pm PDT A photo posted …

I have restored my gallery

For some time now, my gallery has been offline. Due to personal reasons, I just didn’t have the time or energy to devote to my photography. But I’ve come to the conclusion recently that being in a creative rut is no excuse for not being creative—that’s the only way you’ll ever get out of it. …

this is a thing now…

Last spring, I wrote this. I was hoping that the thing that was going to be a thing would actually become a thing a month or two after I published that post. But it didn’t become a thing. Until now. This is why. I would like to say that I overthought parts of it, and …

Clearing Out the Backlog…

Every once in a while, I redesign my blogs, partly because I get bored with the design, but mostly because I am trying to keep things as simple as possible. Sometimes upgrades with WordPress or some of my plugins mean I have to go in and tweak things, leaving a lot of code artifacts all …

Missing Persons and the Uses of Nostalgia

I don’t like to let my mind wander—it has a tendency to not come back anytime soon—but I was doing some research for class and I came across a reference to a book called Viva Chicano, which I had never heard of before. The point was that this was a book about a young Latino …

An Ewok Riding a DeLorean

This image has nothing to do with this post. I just needed a title. And it's funny.

I help out in a number of forums online; the two big ones are the WordPress support forums and the Graphene Theme support forum. In general, I enjoy helping people out, partly because I have received a lot of help there myself, and partly because I learn quite a bit that way. But every once …

how to have a good day

From Instagram

I went to the local temple of mass consumption the other day because I needed a few groceries, and I also needed to return some empty soda bottles. I was having an okay day, but was surprised to see that the parking lot was packed. All the big holidays are over, and as far as …

Friday Miscellany #000

I love Twitter, but sometimes 140 characters is too limiting. Sometimes I have thoughts that are too long for it, but too short for a blog post. (I’m not going to post them on Facebook, which is private. Besides, I hate Facebook and hardly ever use it, except for business purposes.) I think what I’m …

Today is Friday, June 19, 2015

I really should be doing some other stuff, but I feel the urge to write. Stuff has just been too weird lately not to. Rachel Dolezal is in the news. In a year’s time, we will have forgotten all about her, but her story reminded me of something that I experienced years ago. Some time …

http://objects.blog.kjodle.net/pw/pw009.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: 35:06 — 64.4MB) Welcome to episode #9 of Project Wideawake. This is the lost episode. On the plus side, we have new and improved production values, because I’m learning how to use Audacity. (Although there are still places you can hear me move my papers around, I’m getting better about not …

And then one time on imgur…

stock-photo-cute-boy-in-overalls-looking-down-at-something-with-room-for-text-1165260

A while ago someone posted a list of “evil life hacks” on imgur. Some of them were pretty benign, such as calling yourself “Doctor John Smith” when registering for a hotel in order to get better service. Others ranged from not likely to work to unethical to probably illegal. The one that caught my eye …
