I agree re the Portuguese. I’ll remix it. I’d like to include some trump remarks in the break. Any suggestions? Please share link.

That was a phenomenal read. Thank you. Beautiful writing.

I watched this with my family. The kids liked it. My wife read the books and watched the original series when she was a little girl and is a "purist," when it comes to anything "Green Gables," and she liked it too. The actress that plays Anne does a phenomenal job. I also that that the actors that play Marilla and Mathew were great. All around, an awesome show. It introduced me to this amazing song:

Regarding what I've been watching. I'm not ashamed to say that the greatest show I've watched in a while is "Future Man." It's so dumb on the surface, but upon digging deeper, it's pretty damned phenomenal. The character arc of "Wolf," is unlike anything I've ever seen. It's dumb. It's hilarious. It's vulgar and it's provocative. It plays with genre and has a TON of culture references. It's a lot of fun. Check it out .

I know some people that are seriously looking in to this. Upkeep would be horrendous. But you could do some cool things with it. Personally, I’m gonna hold out for Yale. Let’s all buy Yale and change its name to “Fuck Elihu Yale University.”

Since you had a listen when I first posted, check it out with flac’s vocals. https://clyp.it/usexn1kh?token=6b246bf67f75305854b843d44de20023

Dude. It’s amazing how many of my Michigan friends said they were glad I was leaving because they see me more when I don’t live there.

This is so great, flac! First of all, your voice is amazing. I just love it. The lyrics are amazing too. "Where will my ghost haunt?" -Such a great lyric. Thank you for bringing some joy in to my day with this. Is there a way to download this? I'd like to be able to add some instrumentation to it now that there is a vocal melody.

Also, I thought about you as I was unpacking. I have the Hubski shirt you made for me. I am far too fat to wear it now ;-) But I will always keep it. Maybe I should gift it to mk. He's skinny.

Great work, flac. Such an awesome song now that you've added to it. Onward!

Also, good luck with the move!!

edit: jonaswildman have a listen.

Thx! No, We moved to Chapel Hill again. Joanna is opening her own private practice here. I will come up once a month for all hands in person meetings once it’s safe again. Until then, I’ll continue to run the company remotely. If anything, the last few months have proven that “in-person” is overrated when it comes to much of what we are doing.

Feels so strange to move in the midst of a global pandemic. When I sold my home, I was in the parking lot at the title agency. They came out in masks and with gloves on and we signed from the cars. This was the Friday before quarantine. I think history will show that I sold my house at peak market. Very grateful for that.

It is good to know thyself, and it sounds like you do. That’s awesome. FWIW, you’ve never seemed guarded on Hubski.

I called it when he announced. He went down that escalator and started calling Mexicans rapists and I knew the populace would eat it up. They are still eating it up. Despite the polling and now, Biden’s fundraising I still think Trump is as likely to win as Biden. It will be close. I can’t stand Trump but I see Trump signs all over and I see zero Biden. I think his delusional supporters are fanatical. I just drove from MI to NC and trump has a lot of support.

I'm old enough, as you are, to remember Biden from over a decade ago. He was still flubbing sentences and putting his foot in his mouth then. I've watched him of late in interviews and I think he's fine. Is he old? Yes. Does he seem to have dementia, Alzheimers or even severe cognitive decline? I don't see that.

Anyone at his age will not have the same jump in their step that they did at 50 or even 60, but I'm convinced that the presidency is about surrounding yourself with capable people and having the ability to be deliberative. I think Biden will do that and have that. I am still holding out for Yang 2024 though :)

But down with Trump. This galvanized my disdain (as if it needed it): https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-protests-for-racial-justice/2020/06/28/884392576/trump-retweets-video-of-apparent-supporter-saying-white-power

I’m with you.

    It was overwhelming, like when a kid who only ever got little pieces of chocolate here or there gets his first candy bar from Grandma and finds it both amazing and too much to handle at the same time.
