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!

//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
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.

I’ve been drinking cappuccinos more often recently. Both Euphoria and Impact have really good traditional cappuccino.

Pete Buttigieg 9/23/19
During the Q&A a wasp landed on Pete’s tie and wouldn’t leave so he very gingerly took the tie off and had an aide take it outside.

//BNJMN (8/25/19): Spending a normal Sunday morning reading about textile-reinforced concrete. It’s very interesting.
Instead of rebar, using stuff like carbon fiber as reinforcement allows you to make thinner, lighter slabs.
