Lightroom’s window was acting strangely on my MBP. It got smaller when I switched to it. Learned about this setting today: “Scale to fit below built-in camera”. Turned it off.

This wonderful painting by my great grandfather hangs on the wall at my mom’s house. I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. There are stories in there.

Love this letter (fax!) from Douglas Adams:

American audiences do not need to feel disturbed by the notion that places do exist outside the US or that people might suddenly refer to them in works of fiction.

Manual-focus rangefinder selfies with a 50mm lens are a hit-or-miss thing. This one is close enough.

Here’s my original copy of “Frampton Comes Alive”, the first album I ever bought. It was pressed with sides 1 and 4 on one record and 2 and 3 on the other. This was for use on automatic record changers. Wild. Mine sounds pretty rough, probably because I still spin it regularly.

1970s Zimbabwean heavy rock: Watch Out! - Wells Fargo.

…the irony of the band’s name is not lost on founder/drummer Ebba Chitambo, who first saw it printed on the side of a stagecoach in an American cowboy comic book –AllMusic

I enabled “stacking” on my Mac’s desktop a few weeks ago and I can’t believe how much I like it.

I still find it amazing that these were made more than 60 years apart. Top: Leica M3, 1960. Bottom: Leica MP, 2021.

I haven’t liked a Kansas record since 1977 but I love everything up to that point, including this one, 1975’s “Song for America”.

Stopped at a Barnes & Noble on my way back from Cheesecake Factory (no, really!). I noticed that the new release book covers seemed to be designed by the same team. Others noticed too. It’s the “book blob”.

And whenever I think I was cool, I remember this photo of my dad, taken in Hawaii when he was 50.

I keep this photo around as a reminder that I used to be cooler.

Listening to Swans' “The Seer” makes my stomach hurt but it’s so good that I don’t care.

I’ve been using Logseq regularly for a while. Love it. But now with more VC money, they’re saying things like “Accelerate Growth of the New World Knowledge Graph” and it makes me nervous. Settle down, Logseq, you’re a note-taking app.
