Sunday morning long run for 16 miles through the Flemish farmland followed by some Dutch-Tex-Mex smoked mackerel and egg breakfast tacos on homemade tortillas (which I’d intended to photograph, but forgot).

Ran into some early-20s dudes walking back from town to their campsite while finishing up my sunrise run this morning. Got challenged to some head-to-head sprints. Beat all of them. Good signs for starting my proper marathon training regimen this week.

Excited about the new Notes feature in BBEdit 14. The three things I use BBEdit for are opening multi-MB text files anything else would choke on, testing regex with Pattern Playgrounds, and opening dozens of ephemeral text files I never intend to save.

Our 2020 installment on Local Memory, a public history project on music in Austin, is The Wild Side of Life: The Rise of the Honky Tonks, 1940-1950

Thankful to take my son to see the protestors on High St. to give him something real in which to ground our conversations about this. Sorry it hasn’t felt safe to participate more. Hoping for justice for killer cops and peace for our Black neighbors.

Pretty into this little guy from a 15th century Italian herbal, a collection of images from which we published today.

More than 17% of the Wikipedia entry on PrimeCo, once the largest wireless phone service in the U.S., addresses itself to the line “switched from Motorola to a PrimeCo phone” in Lil’ Troy’s “Wanna Be a Baller.” As it should.

The Backlist archive is just small enough to make dead-stupid hand-formatted HTML (with some light automated templating) the simplest way to build it out. Old-fashioned and soothing.

Finished first from some of our wax print stockpile, some quilt batting, and a variation on the straps using paracord.

Joshua Smith makes 1:20 scale miniatures of real buildings like this Discolandia storefront in San Francisco.

Gave up on going back to sleep. Listening to Emily A. Sprague’s new Hill, Flower, Fog. Very calming.

I’m into miniatures, fiber art, and cooking, so these videos are right up my alley.

Tomorrow, Friday March 20, Bandcamp is waving their cut on all sales to help support artists who are having to cancel performances.

Confronting mortality by finally cataloging and organizing all of the books I will never have time to read on the basement bookshelves.

Very happy that I don’t have to choose between voting and potentially bringing the infection into my house with my kid today. Also nervous about the potential for this precedent to be abused in the general election.

I have a lot of Astral Spirits stuff. A lot of diverse, compelling material and great art direction on the packaging. Good Austin.
