A lot has happened in the world of blog hosting and web development since I last dabbled in this seven (!) years ago. I faced a pretty decent learning curve to bring this site up in accordance with what I believe to be some semblance of modern web technologies.
As the hello world post of this here brog, the triumphant return of jamesnewbrain.com (after I forgot to continue to pay for hosting on that wordpress site I was running so many years ago), I offer the following (growing) list of things I love in no particular order except for number one on the list:
- strong espresso
- procrastinating on programming projects by thinking about all the different programming projects I could be working on right now
- Link the cat, resident of Corn on Dekalb
- medium strength flavorful coffee
- low strength bottomless diner coffee
- collecting things i never look at again, just to have them
- Bret Victor's "Inventing on Principle"
- Everything Bret Victor does
- Everything Mike Bostocks does
- thinking about ... oops i got distracted and forgot what i was going to write here
- the song "Don't Leave Me Girl" by Blackstreet
- when scott aukerman calls "comedy bang bang" "comedy bing bong", or "comedy big bang theory"
- our stupid apartment in bushwick with the loud ass vertical radiator pipes
- the song "Unison" by Bjork from Vespertine
- the manga "Helter Skelter" by Kyoko Okozaki
- being a jigga mega fan even though i can't really listen to anything he's put out since 2004 except for remixes of "American Gangster" like this Chrono Trigger mashup or this Marvin Gaye mashup
- marveling at the year end reports of Nick Felton
- when i play games and do all the sidequests in the first third of the game and get bored the game and never finish the main storyline on every RPG I've ever played ever
- listening to "perfect from now on" straight through on vinyl
- my spotify playlist "James' Badass 90s RnB/hip-hop mixtaype!!!"
- the comics of Michael DeForge
- the song "Send it On" by D'Angelo, i could listen to this song on repete for an entire year non-stop
- the comics of Olivier Schrauwen
