@CaseyMalone It’s optional! I opted out. @CaseyMalone Letterboxd is one of the best things on the internet. You have chosen wisely. @todd_coleman I finally got over that hump this year by properly learning Git. I recommend it. Start here: https://t.co/v9GLdImk1s @erinolan I hear ya. https://t.co/TkonvPguF3I should probably have gone to sleep hours ago, but this mental slideshow of every painful mistake I’ve ever made is pretty engrossing.

If 101% of pop culture catered to white nerds instead of only 98.1% then the cyber attacks like the one on Leslie Jones wouldn't happen.

@JeffChausse Front. All the world’s a stage. @Phineas Yeah, and looking scruffy was still a no-no, so I actually had to take time off to grow it back. @Phineas I once transferred to a store that didn’t allow facial hair. A week or two after I shaved, they changed the policy. @JeffChausse Thanks, I’ll give that a read. I think the opening photo is actually from the first (of three) Friday’s I worked at.If you didn’t know, Office Space’s “15 pieces of flair” joke was a 100% real thing at Friday’s (I had 30+ pieces). https://t.co/j2aOOl3QBA“Starbucks, basically, but with mudslides and Tuscan spinach dip.” T.G.I.Friday’s: once a leader, now a follower. https://t.co/HIAamNXvCb

FYI, in the last four years, at least two specific methods of throwing baseballs were the subjects of feature-length documentary films.

As RSS use becomes increasingly niche, how many publication redesign cycles until it disappears? Many newer feed-worthy sites omit them.My follower demographics are a skewed sample, but I’m willing to bet that in general, RSS’s remaining devotees are mostly web geeks over 30.Glad to hear from so many of my RSS family. I hereby dub us the Really Simple Syndicate.I know I’m not the only one who still loves RSS. Let me hear you, RSS people.Time-lapse videos of creative process always display impressive focus. I don’t think any amount of editing could make my process watchable.

When I throw a party, I triple check the guest list to be sure Rudy Giuliani isn’t on it. Can’t be too careful. https://t.co/DGyaNzqZC3 @MissRyley @AdamHSays I always do funny poses for roller coaster cameras, but the Dragster would have none of it. https://t.co/oXSBaj4hb4 @pdoughbrie YOU’RE the coffee table equivalent of a race car bed.I got so excited about this, I briefly allowed myself to believe it might be affordable. https://t.co/nCU6wSn0Q6 https://t.co/deBkUh2DPD

@robotkid Yeah, there are things we should tolerate from kids that we wouldn’t tolerate from adults, but loud devices aren’t one of them.I don’t mind loud kids in public. Kids are kids, it takes a village, etc. Loud personal devices for kids in public, however, I cannot abide.Sometimes none of the many existing terrible songs are sufficient, and my brain must concoct *new* terrible songs to get stuck in my head.A fun and enlightening talk by my pal @SceneStealrEric on the creative lessons that led to his 2013 @AGWC win. https://t.co/6vf2iDaEjz

Sad to hear The Nightly Show has been cancelled. Wilmore’s style didn’t really work for me, but I thought the show deserved an audience.I like going to the doctor’s office because if I’m not asked to sign my name at least 25 times a day, I start to doubt my own identity.

After 20+ frustrating years, either I’m a perpetual Adobe edge case, or they’re actively trying to drive me insane. Not sure which is worse.Using Animate (née Flash) for the first time in ages and simple shape hints aren’t working correctly and I’m definitely 100% extremely calm. @Malarkey It’s been too long for sure. We need to fix that!#whiteandgold #dresstruth #neverforget #insomniatweets

@waynekoby Thanks, someone else pointed me to that too. A step in the right direction! @wyattdanger Yeah, but it’s pretty weak. However, the brand-new Release Radar feature is better. https://t.co/eWkrQ50TrV @joefritz There is some hope. https://t.co/oANWgSaJCo @andymcmillan I do always assume Last.fm’s days are numbered, since it’s made little attempt to appeal to non-obsessives. 😕 @blastcap Frankly, I didn’t find Rdio’s approach much better. But @andymcmillan just informed me of this: https://t.co/eWkrQ50TrV @andymcmillan I see your point, but worry that Spotify would kill Last.fm’s API. I don’t scrobble exclusively from Spotify. @andymcmillan Nice timing! I hadn’t considered how recommendations rely on user data that new releases don’t have yet. Gonna check this out.Also, new releases are by definition unfamiliar. The part most likely to be familiar is the artist name, yet it’s given the least emphasis.Given how effective Discover Weekly is, why must @Spotify New Releases make me dig for music I might actually like? https://t.co/MAbg48tZGC“And yes, it’s important that their dad is a feminist, because now that’s what they expect of all men.” https://t.co/QYB0ZR3pd8Attention product designers who believe in love: OkCupid is hiring. https://t.co/La754FSbHJ

@pdoughbrie That’s a lot of objections. @TheAdnostic Another one I can’t deal with. 🙂 @TheAdnostic I don’t doubt that people find value in that, but spending hours with a stranger working through his issues isn’t for me.Glad to hear Stern is evolving, but whether it’s him or Maron or whomever, the appeal of self-loathing loudmouths probing celebs evades me.“Being a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’ said to him, ‘You are deserving, you are legitimate.’” 🙄 https://t.co/P5vlvG4kDNA fantastic explainer comic from @AndyComics on how gerrymandering is keeping the GOP in control of the House. https://t.co/UqbmVxjQMk

Regardless of who gives it, November’s concession speech is gonna be a hell of a thing. @zeldman @meyerweb I’m not privy to the context, but the idea that the label “user” is necessarily dehumanizing always feels thin to me.I’m really enjoying @thenib’s DNC coverage.
