    Oh, yea, bud... with you, here!

    I’m in Downtown Los Angeles, myself... though I don’t consider this city unique in these spaces. However, being a westward city, I do think there is an interesting mixture of new and old architecture that often butts up against each other.

    Anyhow, the nooks+crannies of a city are def something I greatly enjoy. I take particular joy in seeing greenery spring forth in alleyways of brick and concrete.

    Sauté mushrooms and shallots with some fat (e.g. oil or butter) + sherry + some herbs (e.g. thyme and/or sage). Basically, this recipe. Though, I never go through the trouble of removing the shallots.

    For extra fun, make a béchamel out of it by adding some flour and some milk/milk-alternative. My preference would be to serve over mashed potatoes. Or, mix in some meat-alternative sausage and serve it with biscuits in the morning. But you can serve it over a shoe, if need be. It's a damn good gravy!

    Kind of surprised it has taken this long for someone to create this kind of luxury n95 mask.

    Find a significant other to hang out and cook with. Been doing that this weekend and have been ignorant (in the best way possible) to many of these developments. Easier said than done, I know.

    I think it's less people's incapability from distinguishing fact from fiction, as most people are far from experts on anything1 (including political processes), but more people's willingness to throw themselves at some tribe with an undying belief. Faith, I guess, is the problem.


    1: e.g., have a person hear from three others that the force of gravity on the surface of Earth is (generally): 9.81 m/s^2, 10.75 m/s^2, and 1.00 miles/hour^2. How many people, on average, do you imagine distinguishing fact from fiction?

    Do you have any recommended alternatives? For the record, I use Dynadot and Porkbun.

    answering @culturedleftfoot 's call.

    Hmm... well, I suppose the biggest thing that happened in MMA this year was Khabib retiring(as much as Dana White doesn't want that to be true) after completely dismantling Justin Gaethje. Really... the forward pressure Khabib put on Justin was fuckin' scary and was supposed to be what Justin did to Khabib! I was confident Khabib would win, but I didn't think he would do it while eating Gaethje's shots and walking him down. Gaethje looked reallllly sharp for five rounds against Tony Ferguson (his fight before this), and he looked totally sapped after one round of Khabib. And, until the end of the round, he didn't even get wrestled much! This was Khabib's first fight after his father died due to Covid-19 complications and you can see how much it was weighing on him after the fight in his explosion of emotion.

    Jon Jones finally? moving to heavyweight might be the next big thing.

    This makes me a lil self-conscious, as my bookshelf(ves) are generally on display when I video chat. Though... I've read at least 85% of what's on them ... so, I ain't exactly frontin'.

    Also, somewhat relevant is this article on "tsundoku", or "the art of buying books and never reading them." Of course, when it's orientalized by western media, it becomes romanticized...

    probably the most bad-ass love jam that exists. In the Before Times I’d often pull this out as my show-stoppin karaoke piece. And... sometimes.. I’d do it well!

    anyhow, y’all should add this to your repertoire if you wanna slow-dance with a significant other.
