An Aside

Learning from the lost David Graeber

“I will always notice things. I will notice what I am not noticing. I will help others to notice things. I will expose the criminal squandering of human potential. I will be nice to the reader. I will see joy as an end in itself. I will try to cultivate the kind of intelligence and humor that David Graeber showed. And I will fight, because that is what anarchists do. They do not put up with bullshit or bureaucracy. They refuse to accept the inevitability of tedium and the squandering of the gift of life. They dare to demand the “impossible.””

🚲 to Chris’s 🍨🌮 for lunch. Best idea.

Hi Apple Watch 👋

Very nice to meet you. Really excited about all the cool exercise stuff we’re doing. One request though:

Could you maybe not give me stand up reminders when we are in sleep mode? kthxbye

I’m hearing more and more “Indunapliss”

Could we not?

Even better we could come up with a new city name?

🎶 Did You Know?

It’s not officially Autumn until you’ve listened to Opeth’s Blackwater Park straight through.

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)
