I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I filter #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

    A 2019 Coldwell Banker Global Luxury/WealthEngine report identified Traverse City, Michigan, as the nation’s number-one location for Millennial millionaires (based on their share of the population).

Huh. I am surprised by this. Traverse City is not a city of young people. Perhaps that’s why.

The overall trend matches my experience, however. Was just talking on the plane today to a entrepreneur leaving SF, probably for Texas.

Hey, David Brooks is one of the most talented comedians of our time.

38 years ago I heard this song. I was driving with my dad in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I was about 6 years old. I remembered only a part of it (something about windshield wipers and a truck) and never was able to know which song it was. In fact, I wasn’t even sure if it was possible that I hadn’t heard it in so many years.

Today I was on a flight to Miami, and I watched the movie Finding Steve McQueen. It was the title track, and I recognized it immediately.

I solved a 38 year old mystery today.

This is the song.

Point taken. However, I was talking about self-loathing in a very broad context. We build shit, but literally cannot face it. I agree with the reasons.

Here in Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan has been effective at putting up new buildings that have the character of their neighbors of yesteryear. They've put up some steel and glass shit as well, but haven't mixed the two that I've seen.

Of course, UofM has a largess of embarrassing proportions, so they can do what they please.

Maybe. I did move on gifs. At any rate, Twitter itself has moved some in the last five years. I think the change to 280 characters, and the increase in threading, has made it more of a primary source for things worth discussing.

I just removed Facebook from my phone today. It’s funny, I added Twitter last year, and I enjoy it more for the same reason.

Tweets are people too.

What have I done?

I've been listening on and off, but I think it's a good thing. It's clear the GOP would choose to stop this if possible, and I think the longer this goes on, the worse their defense is going to fare. Taylor and Kent seem reasonable and non-partisan.

Something broken on embedding in comments atm. I'll fix.

Update: Seems good now.

Sorry for the jankiness. I broke something.

I'm listening to the impeachment hearings in the background as I work. If this keeps going like this, I expect this to move public sentiment further towards impeachment.

Watching them now. Seems pretty real.
