I don’t think about my novelty among the surfers but I am. Two conversations today. (I ride in on the face of a wave, end up near a surfer). He asks: “how are you doing that?!” “What?” I reply. “I mean, what are you riding?” I hold up my handplanes: “handplanes—for bodysurfing.” “Cool! Thanks!” …(later)… A surfer turns around and starts his takeoff in front of me. I go to ground, going to the bottom—it’s in my interest to be well out of the way of large heavy fiberglass boards moving fast. When I come up, the surfer is still there. He missed his wave. “You scared me!” he exclaims, but friendly. “Sorry,” I say, sincerely. “I didn’t know what you were! I thought you were a sea lion!” “Aren’t we all though?” I reply. #bodysurfing #stoke #handplane
Back in 2019 I first heard of Mastodon. I saw this: a Pi Zero with stats back at XOXO in 2019.
Since the Twitter changes, I’m using my Mastodon account more than my Twitter account.
Simon Willison recently wrote Mastodon is just blogs, having blogged for twenty years I definitely feel that. Anyway, read Simon’s post. It’s thoughtful and good.

It’s perfectly rational to acquire the same make and model cassette player I used to play my tapes in 1986 in my 1972 Volvo so that I could fully appreciate the ambiance and tales of the Nick Bernal (@burn_all_books) release on @helloamericalit cassette.

Detail: “Beach Toys” a risograph print currently hanging at @thebrownbuilding in the “POOR MATERIALS” show curated by @sketchbook.definition and open Saturday and Sunday evening this weekend. I’m so proud. As we were driving home from the show and after-show tacos I got a Venmo notification that for the first time ever a stranger paid money in exchange for art I made. 80% of that sale will go back to The Brown Building which is a wellness and community center run by and for BIPOC trans folks. Feeling: gratitude and joy.
California State of Emergency for COVID-19 ends in February.
The sooner you realize that ALL code is temporary trash destined for the garbage heap of history, the sooner you can start making rational decisions.
