Should I subscribe to Castro podcast player? I like the direction the new ownership seems to be going in.

Fun to be back behind the microphone calling NBL1 West basketball games for Perth Redbacks. ๐Ÿ€ ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ

Those who listen to @HemisphericViews will know that Iโ€™m a beach guy! Here I am repping the show and a wetsuit!

Spotify is so much better at surfacing interesting, not necessarily mainstream music. Apple Music works really hard to keep me near the Top Charts. ๐ŸŽต

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay โ€“ Part 1, 2014 - โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

This feels closer to Star Wars than The Hunger Games. The plot to kill Catniss is possibly over convoluted?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, 2013 - โ˜…

Just get to the good bit already. Oh, there is no good bit.

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret., 2023 - โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

More evidence that the 70s were the best. I remember reading this Judy Blume book (and others). Wholesomeness delivered to the sad 20s.

Run Rabbit Run, 2023 - โ˜…โ˜…

The audio mix was terrible, but the film at least made me think. But can somebody tell me what the deal was with the face appearing in the memorial?

Buying something with coins feels as good as getting it for free.

Sideways, 2004 - โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Such a fun movie but it feels like a movie from the mid 90s. A lot has changed in 20 years - more than I realised.

NBL Pocket Podcast with Boti Nagy

How fortunate am I that I could do a podcast with journalistic legend, Boti Nagy. This man has a huge history reporting the National Basketball League, is a published author, and thanks to my friend Joseph Corr is now a co-podcaster with me! I was reading Botiโ€™s articles when I was 12 years old. What an honour to do a show with him.

Currently reading: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin ๐Ÿ“š

I dated a handwritten document as 21/3/14. Crikey, I’m a decade out of date!

Taking photos of signs @maique style. This one is a relic! Look at those seniors!

The boy and I started playing It Takes Two on Xbox. So much two-player raging. Lots of fun. He pulled out the nail while I was swinging on it! ๐ŸŽฎ

The Family Plan, 2023 - โ˜…โ˜…

Not great but good family fare.

Finished reading: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami ๐Ÿ“š Probably one of the weirder books I’ve read. Entirely compelling, but I’m not sure I comprehend what I read.

Last night amongst my many vivid dreams, I met Linus Torvalds. I thanked him for his work and the contribution to society that Linux has been. Then I went and rode an elevator that went sideways instead of up and down.

Surely now I own all the Notes apps.

I listened to E70 of @hemisphericviews tonight. So cute to hear my own son from an earlier time. โ€œBe more negative!โ€

We are aware that enshittification is a big deal in the tech industry. With the latest apparently vindictive moves by Apple against Epic, is the great fruit company now on the fast track to its own enshittification? Hubris is at an all-time high.

Good grief, parenting a kid with autism can be hard. ๐Ÿชซ๐Ÿงฉ

Iโ€™m trying Alfred instead of Launchbar. I keep getting stuck. Today, I couldnโ€™t get an equivalent of Launchbarโ€™s โ€œInstant Sendโ€ up and running. Why am I doing this to myself?

I’m not built for humidity. The last few days in Perth have featured this weather condition, and I’m not coping well. I have finishing mopping my floors, and now I’m the one who is mopping wet. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ
