Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, 04.03.20

Welcome to the maiden flight of the passing fancy! Inspired by my old friend Cory — and our current global pandemic — I’ve decided to blow the proverbial cobwebs out of the corners and try something new.

Well, sort of new. When I was running this site on Blogger back in the early 2000’s, I kept a linkblog in the sidebar. This is my attempt at doing one again. So let’s get into it…


Bill Withers is one of my all time favorite artists, and this is one of my very favorite performances. I come back to it when I’m feeling overwhelmed or burnt out, so I’ve listened to it kind of a lot lately.

While I’m incredibly sad that Bill passed away today, this has, again, been the perfect balm to help sooth my broken heart.

n.eko

A bunch of my friends have been loving Netflix Party, but I’ve never been able to get it to work reliably. After doing some digging around, I stumbled onto n.eko and got a server running for some friends in under an hour.

It’s a little bit wonky — and runs best under Chrome — but I’ve had a lot of fun with it over the past couple weeks.

Even though I used to be a t-shirt blogger, I don’t own more than three tees with printing on them. Weird, right?

Not really, TBH. I’m 42, not 24.

With that being said, I really want to buy this totally fucking stellar Disneyfied riff on the cover art for Bad Brains’ debut album.

So 👏🏻 much 👏🏻 good 👏🏻 stuff!

Fraidycat

Back in the day, I would read hundreds of RSS feeds. After the death of Google Reader, I switched to Feedly and got rid of all but 20% of my original list.

At that point though, it was mostly WordPress stuff. Then that started to feel like homework — because it was — so I stopped opening up Reeder altogether.

Now, I’m using Fraidycat to follow a whopping twelve sites. There’s no badges or notifications. Just links to ten of the most recent articles from each site that I subscribe to, presented cleanly. It’s so fucking refreshing.


Okay, five links is a good start, right?
