    Do you realize how much of Live Aid Freddie Mercury spent playing air guitar? Just one of the true gods of rock, air guitaring for what must have been half their 21-minute set, one of the best rock sets of all time, in front of 72,000 people. You love to see it.…

    Now I have three Bluesky invites. Let me know if you’re interested!

    My 3-year-old just asked me if Mark Hoppus is me on this video of Blink 182 playing I Miss You at Coachella 2023.

    Jeri Ryan, the actor who plays Seven of Nine on various Stars Trek, favorited a post of mine on Mastodon today.

    That’s it.

    That’s the whole blog post.

    I verified myself on nostr which required logging into cpanel, creating a json file, editing my .htaccess, and using a CORS tester. It was exhausting. THEN I found out if I don’t give some guy on the internet like 1 USD worth of bitcoin from my lightning wallet, whatever the hell that is, I’ll be stuck on spammy public relays.

    I have two Bluesky invites if anyone is interested. However, I’m only considering requests from people who will swear never to call posts on Bluesky… what lots of people on Bluesky are calling them. It’s not okay.

    Mandibles, night-blooming jasmine, and in-utero memories. These are the things a great Nic Cage interview is made of.

    If You Build It

    I’ve been poking around Bluesky and it seems like they’ve really opened up the gates over there. I’m seeing far more familiar names and avatars. And everyone seems cool, as long as you can avoid the crypto/web3 nonsense. (This isn’t about Jack, or any of weird takes he’s been dropping lately at Bluesky.)
