Weeknotes for the week ending June 13, 2021

  • Watching more TV than usual around here. Went through the entire first season of Sweet Tooth, and now I have to go back and read the comics. I remember the end of the world events being more vague in the comics, they’ve added detail to the TV series but I’m not sure the details make logical sense. Still, I adored the comics, and the first season does a pretty delightful job of bringing it to life (Bobby is…much cuter). Also watched Bo Burnham: Inside, also good. If you want to be convinced to watch it, just watch Welcome to the Internet here:
  • Read Nothing To See Here. It’s about raising kids who spontaneously combust, which, if you’re a parent, you can immediately recognize is really just all kids. The book included this article at the end, which resonated with me: I Was Worried My Anxiety Would Prevent Me From Being a Good Father. My Sons Changed That
  • Finished Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Great game, one of the few games out there where your character’s movements make you feel super powerful (Spiderman on the PS4 is another one that comes to mind). I wish the Switch Pro controller had a headphone jack because Ori has beautiful music but I had it on low volume since I was playing after the kid was asleep.
  • More yard work. This was the end of last weekend: My backyard with some of it dug out. This is where we are after this weekend: My backyard with a cobblestone border and paver stones It’s so close! And by close I mean many tons of pea gravel away from close!

Album a day

I took a break for vacation last week, and apparently forgot to update the last week of May… but now I’m back. The full list remains here.
