    I miss forums

    My food geek forum is pretty dead anymore (most people have gone to instagram I think?) My Radiohead forum is pretty quiet although I think most of us visit at least once a week...but things only get busy when there's new Radiohead-related music/tours, now. Some of it I think is twitter (it's funny bc I was an early adopter among that group and now I don't go, but they're not interested enough to try Mastodon) and some is facebook and some is that they don't have time in their grown-up lives to hang around with internet weirdos, I suspect.
  2. Normally we wait until shows are finished before we start watching, so we don't have to wait each week, but so very many of our friends are watching weekly that we figured we'd better keep up I hate waiting! but it's nice to have the option to rewatch in the meantime, too, instead of rushing through the way we usually do.
  3. There really should be a topic for this here. At this time, three episodes have been released. WG seems to dig it quite a lot, and most of the WGB are similarly enthusiastic despite several changes to characters/plot/etc. Personally, really like the casting. Also like the Westworldy nature of it (exemplified, for me, by the heroic future London air scrubbers).
  4. A shop in Oceanside, CA.
  5. Mez is doing some very high-level work with it, if you follow her on twitter.

    I have been coming here but not logged in and not noticing new posts Not ignoring you all. We have a decent Slack these days, but of course it's an insider group. I have been hoping The Peripheral would bring some noobz here, but it seems not. But with Twitter Muskifying, who knows? it could happen!
  7. I finished the latest le Carré I have, A Legacy of Spies, and Colson Whitehead's The Nickel Boys. On deck (among many others) I have The Topeka School (which I decided to get after half the staff at Powell's recommended it a few Christmases ago), Children of Men, and I want to re-read The Peripheral before I finally read Agency. (!!!!!!!!! I know!)

    Came across this pic of Xeno with our old dog, Choobie. He really liked Choobie! and Choob loved everyone (except small white dogs).
  9. Minxilla are both fully vaccinated. Thank fuck Biden won, so something about this pandemic is happening correctly.
  10. Ugh. Best to her. Fingers crossed she has a reasonable experience flying.
  11. Right after I saw this, I saw his poem, Inaugural, written for last week. I will keep him in mind!
  12. Hah! I find headphones essential most of the time, because his music, dog barking, etc. When we moved here, we got an inordinately large house so we could have his n hers offices and not go crazy being in the same space all the time, even though until March 2020 I spent a fair amount of time out of the house at meetings and events. Who knew that would end up being such a smart investment. 😷
  13. I'm getting notifications for new members joining, although it's pretty sporadic about it.
  14. Please post your things in here! I'll start: UXdB: https://soundcloud.com/uxdb bittersweet db: https://soundcloud.com/bittersweetdb and https://bittersweetdb.bandcamp.com/
  15. It's the privacy aspect that seems attractive about the slack, but I hope there will be a renaissance of this as well! Hi @Fashionpolice
  16. Get in touch if you want an invite.

    WHAT?? How did you hear, GR? (And thanks for letting us know. I hope he didn't suffer much )
  18. Wait, Keanu talks to you?? Does it run on a Mac?

    I think the board shrinks it to a reasonable size for you? I think it defaults to 600 px wide or so, so it doesn’t go insane on ppl

    Oh would be pfee-tsa auf Deutsch, yeah? Much cuter in German.

    Dreamt that there was a big old-school WGB meetup, I think it was San Francisco? but maybe not, there was a subway. There were all these old board Wigbers, many of whom were real people, but many of whom I think my imagination invented...or maybe were characters from WG books? I was having a hard time keeping everyone and their names and board handles straight. It was in maybe the 2000s, but felt even longer ago than that. Just another excuse for an anxiety dream, between remembering people's names and worrying I'd get on the wrong subway train.

    In progress...

    So, you may hate the new format as much as I do. That would be hard, but maybe you do One thing I want to note is that they are deprecating the old BBCode, which means that people like me who type their emphasis and quotes and whatnot are going to be shit out of luck soon. I have set this to keep them for now, but they're knocking them off sometime soon. RIP, bbcode
