Concerning “the blind leading the blind” — July 13, 2020

Concerning “the blind leading the blind”

Fellow Seattleite and developer Olof Hellman on the phrase “the blind leading the blind”:

Let your guide take you to Pike Place Market and taste the coffee and the piroshky and the crumpets and the nectarines and the chowder. Let your guide take you to the Olympic Sculpture Park, to hear the city and the train tracks and the ferry and the the wind curling around Alexander Calder’s Eagle, and taste the air from the Sound and feel the full force of the sunset. Let your guide take you to Sake Nomi where Johnnie will pour you a flight of Junmai Daiginjoshu and treat you like the Nomidachi regulars.

This is quite the beautiful sentiment. And those piroshky are to die for.

Why You Shoud Watch The Magicians — April 2, 2020

Why You Shoud Watch The Magicians

Look, The Magicians is f#@king weird, unabashedly. It’s like mid-20s Harry Potter on opium meets The Chronicles of Narnia with a drinking problem and chronic depression.

This, and the post it’s from, pretty much nails the series. I had never read the books, so I didn’t know what I was getting into when The Magicians first aired. But like many, I fell in love.

If you’re looking for something new to watch during the apocalypse, I highly recommend it.

Why You Should Ignore All That Coronavirus-Inspired Productivity Pressure

Came across this fantastic article today. It was written to help people that are struggling through their day to day lives in this new reality.

This quote really hits home for me. As someone who lived through 9/11 and the wars to follow, this pandemic has such a similar feel.

Global catastrophes change the world, and this pandemic is very much akin to a major war.

Fascinating article. Click the link and give it a read. Stay safe.

Trying to Stay Sane… — March 28, 2020

Trying to Stay Sane…

It’s difficult in the midst of the quarantine to stay motivated. To stay engaged. I’m finding it difficult to work on the projects I’ve committed myself to finishing.

But I’m healthy. And my family is healthy. And thankfully our financial situation allows myself and my wife the time away from our respective jobs.

Secure in that knowledge, a bit of boredom and lack of focus don’t seem like the worst things I could be dealing with. How about I give this website thing and all those little side projects another concerted effort huh?

Upward and onward!
