Fire in the Next Valley 12/5/19
//BNJMN (12/1/19): I wonder if I could figure out how to train a neural network to write poetry in collaboration with me. The limiting factor is that there isn’t some huge database of my work to train it on, but if I’m just trying to partner with it, I can do a lot of editing and prompting.
//BNJMN (11/26/19): I just discover this tool called ngrok, and I have to say it’s pretty cool. You can do a few things with it, but for my purposes it lets me expose a local server online, which should be really helpful for mobile web development.
//BNJMN (11/25/19): I’ve decided I’m into tomato soup now.
//BNJMN (11/23/19): This afternoon I tapered down some vintage Wranglers (they had an awful boot cut) and they turned out lovely.
↬ American Scandal: Enron 11/23/19
I binged this 5 part podcast today. It has re-enactments that I would guess take liberties with reality, but it makes for a good story that explained the Enron scandal in a way that I never really got.
//BNJMN (11/22/19): Fleabag is extremely good. In many ways it’s not my type of show, but it’s so good it doesn’t matter.

//BNJMN (11/8/19): I am grumpy.
↬ Labrador 11/7/19
This Aimee Mann song is just the best.
//BNJMN (11/6/19): I’ve been using Hugo recently and to be frank I’ve been frustrated with it. The content organization system doesn’t work quite the way I want, and it seems harder to reference data than it ought to be. I spend too much time trying to figure out how to do basic stuff in the weird Hugo way.

↬ Heavyweight #27: Scott 10/24/19
Heavyweight is one of the the best podcasts out there. This episode, about a son trying to retrieve a lost family heirloom for his father, resolved in an unexpected and beautiful way.
//BNJMN (10/23/19): Just spent an embarrassing amount of time updating this site so it can go dark mode.
It would have just been a ten minute thing, except I had to change the logo from being displayed as an img to a background image, which is one of the dumbest, most annoying corners of css.
But now it works!
Kitten Pile 10/23/19
//BNJMN (10/21/19): Yesterday helped move great-great-grandpa Ernest Emil Friedrich’s 700lb (I don’t know the exact weight, but it’s huge) up a flight of steps. Did not get crushed.
//BNJMN (10/21/19): Listened to Acid Rap (Chance’s first album, I think) today for the first time, and it’s good, just like they say.
//BNJMN (10/21/19): Working on updating the Portfolizine today…for some reason working on anything portfolio related is a real drag for me.
Autumn at Volga 10/17/19
↬ Wild Wild Woman 10/17/19
I made this playlist a while ago, and it has stood the test of time. The theme is cool hip-hop and hip-hop adjacent songs by women (of course). It’s named after a Your Smith song.
//BNJMN (10/16/19): It’s fall now. I don’t like the cool, but I’m happy to be decked out in flannel and jeans again for the season.
