Tried an experiment where I subscribed to every site Kottke recommended in his farewell-for-now post (as long as it had a feed) and then pruned the ones I wasn't reading. This is the result after two weeks

"He was not only the greatest of baseball writers; he had also lived long enough to see Babe Ruth, of the Yankees, at one end of his life and Shohei Ohtani, of the Angels, at the other."

I admit, I'm intrigued by this facial expression. Not enough to watch a two-hour video (is part one also two hours??), but still

Realized tonight that of the four places I've ever seen a MLB game, two are already gone (old Yankee Stadium, Shea). Arguably Camden Yards too, with that travesty they enacted in left field


the good news is that I don't need eye surgery; the bad news is that I have a sword of damocles situation now where I might suddenly need eye surgery at any moment for the rest of my life 🙃

Today the receptionist at the doctor's office asked about my job while making conversation, and I tell you what…mentioning Fortnite provokes a sort of response that Rock Band never did. "My daughter's always asking me for money for that!"

As a New Yorker, my face is going to get stuck like the sickos.jpg guy seeing the Sox losing like this

According to my weather app, the temperature will double by next weekend

This is one of the coolest blog posts (articles? webpages?) I've ever seen. I feel like I just went to a great museum exhibit!

My local supermarket has been slowly renovating over the past couple months, which means every time I go everything is in a different spot and a different set of aisles is closed or bare. I feel like I'm in a shittier Control

I stopped caring about Mother 3 localization years ago, but after Reggie outed himself as a blockchain-ass monetize-my-Animal-Crossing-island guy I’m in favor of haranguing him about it anyway for the rest of his life.
