Ted Lasso was delightful and funny. The earnest and honest comedy reminds me of something I can’t out my finger on.

And Coach Beard reminds me of… Someone else. That also alludes me.

Is there anything else on Apple TV+ that’s worth our time?

🍎📺

Nomadland (2020)

I can’t decide if this is more cautionary tale of planning for retirement.
Or a perverse love story to a woman who looks lost and unable to find peace after losing her husband, her life, her community.
Did the upheaval of everything she knew lead to a life on the road? Was the view an escape hatch she leapt through when she has nothing else?
It’s a beautifully shot film filled with trauma around every corner. A collection of people fractured by life and events out of their control.

Ground Rules for New Bloggers

Good advice here. Especially about creating ground rules. Make some rules for yourself. It’s easier to make decisions when you can ask Past You what you did last time. If you have a rule not to blog about breaking news or gossip, then it’s easy to refer to it when you’re tempted.

Ground rules are important for who you let in. This is your blog. Your space. Your little corner of the world. You don’t have to give a voice to anyone in it you don’t choose to. You’re not a politicians having to win favor. You’re not a company worried about making payroll or earnings reports.

You’re a person. Or people.

You decide.

You make the rules and can change them when it suits you. If something isn’t working, change it.

$400 problem

Life with a Series 0 Watch, Older Tech, and COVID-19 – Mark Crump
It’s not that I think the new Watches suck. It’s that they don’t solve $400 worth of problems for me.

A new purchase can solve a problem. But with it can come new problems. Does it need a new charger? Does it use the small army of accessories I already have for the device? Is there going to be something I can do now and won’t be able to do on the new one?

Looking at you Halo 5 with your lack of split screen game play.

Sometimes the problem it solves isn’t worth the price tag.
