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.

Diving into a new painting.

Working on a project that I am excited to share with everyone. A few more weeks.

I am hoping for a vaccine for our daughter and boosters for us by November. Then I am going out. I want to get covid when my immunity is high. I'm sick of this shit. Hoping for hybrid immunity.

I had a late drive last night and listened to Incesticide to stay awake the last hour.

I think it does because I believe there are serious, competent, and resourceful people that think Democracy is “rule by idiots”, and that there is a better alternative.

The US won't survive another Trump presidency.

The artificial womb seems like a problem enough. That’s going to tank it right there.

But I disagree, if the point is to bring back the mammoth, I think it’s one of my favorite companies.

You don’t think he will?

I think it’s a good time for it. We need a kick out of the two party point of view on everything. Each party is so deeply defined by being anti the other, that there’s little room for anything else.

I think I am done with this one.

    I cancelled some upcoming business travel and a annual friend get together in NYC due to Covid. I don't want to bring it home with me. It wasn't an easy decision, but it feels like the right one.

That's from two Pubski's ago. It was the right choice. Covid exposure happened on the business travel.

One of those checklist days.

    So far, there is little evidence that inflation is rising beyond a “relatively narrow group of goods and services that have been directly affected by the pandemic and the reopening of the economy,” he said.

From where I am sitting, it seems a relatively narrow group of goods and services that have not gone up in price. I wish he had some examples from the broad group not experiencing inflation.
