Favorite Things of 2022

Big Thief put out the best album of the year – a true masterpiece.  

Also very good:
Dehd – Blue Skies

Top Gun (USA USA USA!) was my favorite movie of the year. Anyone who doesn't like this movie is trying too hard. It's a good movie. Everything Everywhere All at Once actually lived up to the hype. Also, the Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent.

"Computers" Update


I've been working on this "Computers" concept on and off for about 3 years. 

I don't know where it's going, but it feels like whatever I'm making needs to be made. 

Sometimes it feels like it's all just making itself.

I've always liked making stuff. Hats, t-shirts, websites. But I have to be careful because it's a slippery slope. As I make stuff and people respond to it, I tend to put pressure on myself to make more, and then I begin overthinking, and it all becomes really stressful. That's where I am at right now. I am making this stuff, but then don't know how or when or why I would share it. It's sort of this weird cycle of creating and then overthinking what the creation is or isn't. The result is I do nothing. And wait. Also, of course, resulting in anxiety and the feeling of missing an opportunity or losing momentum. 

The only way to move forward is to remove any and all expectations. 

Just keep going.

Burn Yourself Out Completely

When you do something, you should do it with your whole body and mind; you should be concentrated on what you do. You should do it completely, like a good bonfire. You should not be a smoky fire. You should burn yourself completely. If you do not burn yourself completely, a trace of yourself will be left in what you do. You will have something remaining which is not completely burned out. Zen activity is activity which is completely burned out., with nothing remaining but ashes. This is the goal of our practice.

Steph and I saw Triangle of Sadness over the weekend. Feels like an instant cult classic. Definitely worth watching.

We also recently started watching The Peripheral – feels a bit like Westworld – worth watching if you like Sci-Fi/simulation theory.

We're only 1 episode in, but already feel bored with season 2 of White Lotus.

Meta is losing more on its metaverse bet than ever, but Zuckerberg is telling investors and employees to trust him – “Look, I get that a lot of people might disagree with this investment, but from what I can tell, I think this is going to be a very important thing,” he said. “People will look back a decade from now and talk about the importance of the work being done here.”

If I took these photos on my iPhone, I’d say they looked like garbage. But taken on my digital camera, they’re giving Y2K paparazzi. They’re giving indie sleaze.

Meanwhile... Reuters recently reported that Twitter is losing its most active users.
