I’m starting/restarting a thing here on the blog. What is this thing, you may ask? Well, glad you asked. I’m calling it the ‘Weekly Roundup’ and will be items of interest and/or links I found interesting during the week or continue to find interesting or useful on a regular or semi-regular basis.
I won’t be talking much about or linking to anything to do with the current situation in the middle East or what’s going on in the world or politics or anything too serious. This is more of a distraction exercise that hopefully will help you find something to occupy your time and suppress the existential dread (at least for a few minutes).
Damn, that was a lot of words. Confused? Just go with it.
Here’s some of those links or interesting bits now:
I continue to be interested in, learn from and enjoy the Scriptnotes podcast with John August and Craig Mazin.
I’m also a fan of Marc Maron and his WTF podcast. He gets some great guests and is an excellent interviewer.
I’m reading a book about Python by Al Sweigert called Automate the Boring Stuff With Python. I’m learning a lot.
I recently picked up an Apple Watch Ultra2. It’s chunky and a love it. No, I didn’t really need a chunky Apple watch. I just wanted a new watch and it seemed like the coolest one. Also, it’s an early combo birthday/Xmas present from H. She’s very generous. I’m very lucky.
And yes, I know I’m always talking about how much I love and still use analog things. That’s still true. Don’t believe me? Check out my Instagram.
I’m also a nerd and this Ultra2 is pretty damn nerdy. So, there you go. Did I mention it’s chunky? It’s also made of titanium. That’s pretty cool.
Until next time. Be kind to each other.
