Me Myself&I

There’s no pandemic anymore

It’s just people not wearing masks and using sick days out of nowhere.

1992 curse

30 years ago, Michael Jordan was walking in public in Barcelona. Just above him on the sidewalk, a—for the time absolutely giant billboard of himself going at the rim.

This was probably the last time ever that MJ was able to be in public like that. Imagine.

Three decades and counting of either living in rooms with very few people, or in acres with very few people. Otherwise, just people yelling and screaming at you.

Imagine the alienation. Thinking of jumping real quick to that coffee place, just to enjoy a cup, a sandwich and a stool in a cozy corner, like I just did this morning? Nope. Never ever again in your life can you afford that simple pleasure.

He’s been handling this curse pretty well. I think I would have lost it. Freedom >>>>

Las Vegas Aces aced it

A’ja picking her nose during the press conference. Not a fuck was given anymore. As it should!

She wears number 22 and got her first Championship in 22. Chelsea just won her second WNBA championship while being Finals MVP. A’ja was this year’s MVP and DPOY. That’s some incredible achievement here.

Becky Hammon, the coach. I mean, it’s amazing. Working in the NBA for years, interviewing and being dismissed when trying to coach a team, she left the NBA, got the job for the Aces, wins Coach of the Year AND a title on her first run. HELLO? FOH

The entire team played so, so well. I’m saying 90s Bulls, 2014 Spurs, current Warriors well. That game 3 against Seattle is when I thought to myself, “oh they’re winning this entire shit”. Kelsey Plum was incredible, Riquna Williams put those games away, Jackie Young was phenomenal (she won Most Improved Player this year). Everyone did their jobs perfectly. It’s so pretty to see something click between people. Teamwork.

Discipline, practice, big hearts.

I love those women. Congrats y’all.

A day DTLA

Yay! It was great. We then went to see Luminex stuff without downloading a single app, without scanning a single code, just by walking around and asking yellow jacket staff where the next installation is while scanning the sidewalks for human poop.

A day DTLA indeed.

Rings, Dragons and a dead Queen

Y’all seem to be into this, still! Kind of fascinating yet sad AF, but anyway.

Personally, I left rings of power and dragons and monarchy behind at age 10, many moons ago.

At that time, Akira, Saint Seiya and Dragon Ball Z—just to name a few— whooped my ass and looked a gazillion times more interesting than heroic fantasy.

What makes medieval stuff with magic that compelling to grown folks in the age of zombie-people walking around looking at they phones, I don’t know.

Stay safe, though.

Apple stuff

I’ve been using a Mac daily at work for a couple months now, and I’m here to report that:

  • Windows 8.1 has better rendering and a sharper text on screen than macOS 12.6
  • Windows 10 has better rendering and a sharper text on screen than macOS 12.6
  • Windows 11 has better rendering and a sharper text on screen than macOS 12.6

Considering that we spend a good 80% of our time in front of computers to read some stuff, this is some shit.

I remember some old mid-2000 threads about Macs having blurry rendering, but now I know. I experience it. *personal growth*

A bunch of links

The Melancholy of Subculture Society.

“Internet links small groups, helping dissolve big groups; good, bad? But a bit sad.”

How Sleep Deprivation Decays the Mind and Body.

“Getting too little sleep can have serious health consequences, including depression, weight gain, and heart disease. It is torture. I know.”

The Nothingness of Money.

“Habit is the glue that gives perception its stickiness.”

Video Game Music Preservation Foundation Wiki.

1,786 artists, 2,656 songs.

Are You a Naïve Realist?

“the best inoculation against naïve realism—the illusion of personal objectivity—is a healthy dose of fact, aggregated from non-biased sources with no skin in the game. But against the backdrop of a highly polarized political landscape, and a media environment flush with disinformation, it is exceedingly difficult to even know where to begin in de-biasing oneself.”

Hot Girl Summer Is a Utopian Notion.

“Hot Girl Summer is utopia. What we hope for, and then mourn as we slide into September, is a different reality.”

Many parents since the 1940s

(I really loved that movie)

Me Myself&I


Chicago Sky was the favorite but Connecticut Sun was on point.

That block from Jonquel “FOH” Jones got me jumping.

And then Courtney Williams, above, sunk a midrange jumper -that thing that most basketball analytical dudes say is the worst but regularly wins games at the last second- to put the game away and her face says it all. done deal, bitch

After that, Dewanna Bonner made her free throws and screamed so hard and for so long, it was incredible to watch.

Finals incoming!

Tech mess

It’s impossible to describe what it feels like to hear about that thing, Twitter, once you’re completely off of it.

I read this headline: “Former Disney CEO Bob Iger says the company found that “a substantial portion” of Twitter’s users were “not real”, when Disney considered buying Twitter in 2016”

And I’m thinking “well yeah; it’s full of nonsense and clout bots lol” while the tech crowd is *actually* pondering if it’s really full of fake users or not in 2022 LMAO.

What are you all doing

Meanwhile I’m looking for something in my YouTube history, where search is utter shit (it’s Google so that makes sense right?), and I couldn’t find it. Thankfully I had kept that tab open since early 2021.
