20160818 — So many podcasts, so little time. Recent highlights:

  • latest episode (all episodes, really) of Revisionist History (ep #10), where Gladwell targets the toothlessness of contemporary American satire, specifically Saturday Night Live, which goes for the goofy ha-ha, rather than the deep, incisive skewering

20160818_IMG_8362jpg — Love the stale signage promoting “U.S. Olympian Hopeful” Jordon Spieth, who declined going to Rio because of Zika-fear and the fact that being very wealthy allows him (and the rest of golf’s nascent royalty) the flexibility to opt-out of silly things like competing for a medal in the Olympics.

20160818 — I’ve been playing a game I may have invented that layers currently-playing podcast audio over banal, discontinuous scenes. In real-time. On Snapchat. It works out about 20% of the time.

If you want to understand how much work America (and the South) has in order to come to terms with its history with race and slavery; knowing this memorial currently does not exist is a good place to start.

20160817 — Just came across this World Press Photo award winner today, from Rohan Kelly. I love how on the WPP site, they show the location the photo was made, and what body and lens were used, but don’t mention what kind of post-processing may (or may not!) have occurred in Lightroom.

20160817 — Three years ago, today. #kidfantastic

I set my tweets to delete after a week. I prefer maintaining my own personal archive of them, which is auto-generated, and spreadsheeted-up, thanks to IFTTT.

Occasionally, a good one gets away, like when I found an old doc about Annie Leibowitz, which contained a segment of her photographing Trump & a pregnant Melania — but the best part was Vicki Goldberg laying waste to celebrity culture, and by extension, Leibowitz’s proficience at photographing profligacy.

20160720_IMG_7750.jpg — Some day I’m going to do a project of screenshots of halfway points in televised crossfades.

I listened to Max Linsky’s new podcast effort, with Hillary. If Hillary needs help “humanizing” herself, it’s the beginning of a brilliant effort.

20160815 — from “A Honeypot For Assholes”: Inside Twitter’s 10-Year Failure To Stop Harassment” — Buzzfeed. Lots of incredible stuff in the piece, including this, how Senior Mgt at Twitter thought two-factor auth was so complicated, they didn’t want to roll it out to their own workforce, lest they stop tweeting. Wow. [Screenshot]
