Mentors, Mailoji, and magenta mini-Monets Photo by Mick Haupt on Unsplash — Ahead of his time This has made me laugh nearly every time I come back to it. Now we all half expect children or pets or front-door-knockers or break-and-enterers to walk through the background of our vidcons. This man was truly ahead of his time. Happy 4 year ...

Leather and Less Friends; This Free-Trade Rice is Making Me Thirsty Photo by Ilse Orsel on Unsplash — Leather Fetish Ok. To begin with, a confession. Come closer. Real talk right now.

Unions, Stacks, Trends, Tips, and Out-of-Offices Photo by Patrick Tomasso on Unsplash — Unfortunately I’ve started my 2021 in a bit of a career-funk. It’s probably normal for the beginning of a new year, and given how woeful 2020 was I’m giving myself a pass for any lack of optimism and enthusiasm for the months ahead. But my bad mood ...

Zooming Eagles, Festive Fast Cars, and Flying Whales Photo by Sateesh Reddy Patlolla on Unsplash (I really tried hard to find a ‘Graffiti Santa’ or something similarly Christmassey but came up short - street artists take note there’s an opportunity there!) — Pull the Ripcord One of the better parts of this year (in my view at least alt...

DuetTok, Creative Destruction, and Check, Mate Photo by Timon Klauser on Unsplash — Probably the most popular gambit Over the past week I’ve been devouring the addictive Netflix series, the Queen’s Gambit.
