Still mulling over some of Postman’s πŸ“š Amusing Ourselves to Death and this is my emerging theory of dystopias:

  • the conservative failure mode is towards Orwellian dystopia
  • the liberal failure mode is towards Huxleyan dystopia

⚽️ I repeat: this is not what offsides is supposed to be about. Nobody was goalpost-camping.

⚽️ Congrats to the winners, and thank you for not playing β€œVAR football”, Spain!

We call this my β€œAiel shirt”

😈⚽️ Just offered some of my Atlanta coworkers a Corn Jersey.

A Indiana jersey that looks like giant corn on the cob

⚽️ Yes! 3rd quarterfinal cupset in Open Cup history and Indy Eleven on to the Open Cup semifinal with 2-1 over Atlanta!

⚽️ Dax McCarty OG makes it #IXI 2-0 Atlanta!

⚽️ Woohoo! Lower league takes the lead! #IXI 1 - Atlanta United 0

⚽️ The #IXI were having a good run there for a bit, but have had a harder time the last couple games, and are coming off a very recent match without much recovery time.

Hoping for a good showing against Atlanta United. #OpenCup

As USAmericans celebrate independence day: solidarity with all indigenous peoples, lands still under colonial rule, and peoples targeted by empire.

🎢 Listening to Hum’s β€œYou’d Prefer to Be an Astronaut” album and I keep thinking β€œhow were you making post-hardcore way back in 1994?”

πŸ¦‡ every once in a while, I think about how bats fly using their fingers

Ok you gearheads. Riddle me this:

is there a good backpack with a backpack?

I’m thinking something like:

near backpack has clothes, etc. outer backpack has laptop etc.

This exists for outdoors (I can put my little dayhiker on my backpacking pack), but I’m not sure if a good traveler version exists?

⚽️ let’s go! #USMNT
