Max GAS

Today, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is available for preorder. Like many new shiny Apple things, I’m intrigued by this device. I’m not gonna rush on the preorder; it seems more practical to try the new phone out first. I asked Apple when that’d be possible and they said the Pro Max wouldn’t be in …

Fumed

Fumed

Before we moved into our home in 2006, we had decorative concrete flooring installed. We had to move in a bit faster than we’d initially expected, so we definitely cut some corners on the pre-move details. While the concrete floors looked great (and still do), we didn’t have the floors sealed, which has made their …

I’ve heard NaPodPoMo is a good time for podcast experiments. I’m taking that idea to heart. Earlier this week, I fired up my RØDECaster Pro for the first time in ages to upgrade its firmware. I also wiped all of its settings to the factory defaults. That means starting over from scratch.

Saving The Snark

Halfway thru Election Day 2020. I’ve been monitoring the social medias as much as I can stand to. While I have as many hot takes as everyone else, I’m holding back.

Anxiety Day

Jen joins me for NaPodPoMo day two. Jen is very empathic, Force sensitive (still honing her Force-wielding skills), allegedly not a Betazoid (yes, I said “Betazed” in the recording; I will never live it down), and is feeling the country’s anxiety the night before Election Day 2020.

CoronaCast 3: COVID/COVIS

CoronaCast 3: COVID/COVIS

Originally recorded on April 3rd, when this whole pandemic thing was still somewhat new (but definitely no less surreal). Anxiety is not new to me but I can usually pin its cause on something. It’s certainly easy enough to blame any sense of uneasiness on the current state of the world, but I’ve still been …

CoronaCast 1: Sheltering-at-Home

Jen joined me to have a conversation about novel coronavirus COVID-19. The audio was recorded two days ago, during our first full day of shelter-at-home, as ordered by the state of California. We shared what we know about where COVID-19 might’ve come from. (Virus reservoirs!)

January 2020

I was struggling to find something to write about regarding last month. Seems the winter doldrums are inescapable, even here on the Central Coast. In preparing the photos for this post, I noticed a theme emerging, as most of the images are related to the many large housing/hotel developments all over town. I’ve been documenting …
