Things I Learned Today

I learned that your Instagram network is your Instafam.  That's really annoying.  It makes me feel like one of those old dudes who doesn't want to learn new terminology because it feels so dumb.  I blame Alia Bhatt because I learned it reading about her social media from isolation.  I like Alia's movies.  The fact that this picture of her on a bicycle exists from Dear Zindagi with Shah Rukh Khan has nothing to do with my interest in her [I first saw her in Gully Boy, a recommendation from a co-worker at my last work place].

This is less learned and more learned someone.  I got half an M and M out of the house dispenser.  My wife said she only got a half the previous day.  I said that was my half.   She asked what color my half was.  I asked what color her half was.  Mine was blue.  Her half was yellow.  I said, "See."  She noted they were different colors and "see" made no sense.  I explained to her that it was what happens when you split a green M and M.

April 2021 Reading List


  • Mexican Gothic
  • Nameless by Grant Morrison
  • The Shadow Out of Time by HP Lovecraft and Culbard GN
  • Klaus: the New Adventures of Santa Claus by Grant Morrison and Dan Mora


My wife came home and stuck her wrist in my face as I crawled off the bicycle and ordered, "Sniff this."  A weird thing to do when you're dripping sweat all over the place.  But I did and it was fine.  Then she grabbed her shirt off the table - the outer layer, she wasn't shirtless this whole time - and told me to smell the sleeve.  I pondered it and replied, "Smells like you spilled beer on yourself."  She looked confused and then sniffed it herself and said, "I get that, it does now."  I told her if she was trying to arouse me, a perfume that smelled like old IPA was probably a solid move, but it was going to arouse our neighbor as well.

      • Why machine learning struggles with causality
      • Machine learning systems thrive on finding and exploiting statistical regularities. This is why they can’t do causal reasoning.
      • I also like "we don't need to drive a car off a cliff to know what will happen" - reminds me of Dwight and Michael following the GPS despite what their eyes told them was wrong.
      • ML and computers in general can interfere with your native capacity for counterfactuals is probably an amusing area of study.

Sleeping and Brick Gollums

I think I've been sleeping too much.  I know, if you sleep, then it's probably not too much, but it's considerably more than pre-covid.  Doom scrolling and other behaviors seem to have an impact on my hours of shut eye.  I noticed the difference this week when I got up at my old commute time for several days and had several hours of pre-work time to myself to...well, work, and read, and watch some television, and walk...I definitely felt more productive.

This morning I overslept - imo - but I got to enjoy a weird dream on the tail end of those hours.  In some run down factory that had been semi-gentrified, I was hosting a D and D game.  But I'd lost all my notes from previous games and had fifteen players participating I couldn't remember a thing about.  So I looked out the window, took note of all the broken brick and trash in the neighborhood where they/we were trying to repurpose an old factory, and decided I'd have to do a hack and slash that was challenging regardless of the number of players and/or their level.  The result...a brick and garbage gollum the size of a factory that had fists, hands, mouth, but could also form tree sized pseudo appendages that would slam into a player, enveloping them, suffusing their lungs and stomach - unless they made their save - and possessing them as a gollum zombie under the gollum's control that would start to ooze and collect trash, ala the Japanese movie Tetsuo, the Iron Man.  I remember thinking in my dream that it was clever to have a gollum, traditionally under control, be the one controlling.  It's less clever when I'm awake because gollums don't work that way, so it was likely more of an elemental, or the zombie players were under the control of the gollum's owner.

I suspect all that is related to helping E with D and D lately, as well as playing it myself with my old crew.  When E and I were talking I pointed out I have a few standard scenarios I pull out when I need to buy some time for future ideation, or want the party to enjoy a bit more hack and slash than usual.  Crippled beholder with fewer stalks, weird spells, and a tribe off worshippers, like bullywugs or kobalds, plus associated pets [maybe the beholder has a tame spell it uses on behalf of it's worshippers, so anything is fair game].  I also like rando nemesis.  Maybe you trespass, maybe you find a small abandoned temple and loot it, maybe you ruin something that seems innocuous like a nest or a colony of bugs, and the local wood demon/deity decides to make an example out of you and keeps upping the challenge until something "works".

Not a Reading Post

Every once in a while I feel like getting back into not-reading posts.  Bare with me.  Hmm...I bet it's bear with me.  Otherwise we're going to have to shed some clothes, right?

So what did I do for my birthday this year?  Celebrated it a day early for one.  We headed up to the cabin to see my folks and took a bunch of steak, porkchops, and potatoes with us.  And some games.  My wife and kid took crokinole.  We learned to play it at a gaming day with friends last weekend and they loved it.  Then discovered that the board I'd had forever because it was the same board I'd had as a kid in the old farmstead home when I farmed in the summers, was a crokinole board on the flip side.  So there was a bunch of cribbage and crokinole pre-steak.  

You can tell we're in heavy covid concern because of the masks.  I literally used my mask between bites of dinner.  I was pretty sure we were all safe, but my kid bags groceries, and we talked to the neighbor to get Luna - the dog - watched, and the meat store in Osseo was off the hook with people.  Better safe than sick with all the hospital beds pretty much full.

I got a cool pillow case from my mother that means I'll never have to guess which pillow is mine again, and I'll know if my wife is stealing my pillow to use as a reading pillow in the living room.  Reminds me that I need to get mounting bolts for the bars to hang my cycling quilt she made me.

And I got a cycling game.  I told my wife Flamme Rouge was on my short list of potential gifts.  She got the expansion as well so I can play solo.  I'm worried that it's sort of pathetic if I sit around drinking and playing cycling games all by my lonesome, but I'm willing to deal with the shame.
I got this game

September 2020 Reading

I need to get better at more of a day-by-day entry system, because dang was this a lot of stuff to track.  I feel weirdly underread this month despite what is obviously a LOT of reading.  I didn't even include starting Little, Big right at the end of the month and some of Dying of Whiteness that may become a co-bedside book with The English.  And Lovecraft Country doesn't include that I'm going to watch the series on HBO because I don't do television here.  Argh...see, I can already tell I missed the Tim Minchin podcast with David Tennant and that was one of my favorites.  Drove me down a whole musical aside.  Or Cush Jumbo.  Sigh...  I bolded the four Tennant podcasts episodes I liked best, but they were all really, really good.   I think Levy's was the one I like least, because I haven't watched his series, although I loved the stories with his dad and his experience in the industry and life.
