How to Install Craft CMS on a Digital Ocean Server

I run this blog on Wordpress, but I'm always interested in WP alternatives, and one of the biggest right now seems to be Craft CMS. This post is not about debating Craft CMS vs. Wordpress though - I just wanted to document the process of installing it on a Digital...

The Quincy Jones Vulture Interview

This Quincy Jones interview is great, super entertaining. There is one thing I wanted to write about though, and since I wound up writing a lot of it out in a message, I figured I'd do it here: In the interview, Jones talks about a bunch of stuff like who actually...

I Tried Cryptokitties and Also Some Other Thoughts

So I had this idea a couple of years ago that I could never really figure out: I wanted to just give away 49% of Castmate to anyone who wanted a piece. Divide it up into a billion shares and give out 100 or 1000 to anyone who asked or filled out a form. A few reasons:...

Twitter: Still a White Supremacist Website

From what I can tell, "Krang T Nelson", a left wing non-nazi normal person who wrote funny, obviously jokey tweets got in a fight with a racist, Daily-Stormer-quoting, muslim-hating, Sandy Hook/Heather Hayer truther lady, who got a bunch of other racists worked up, so...

In 3 Days This Domain Will be 20 Years Old

I don't really have anything to say about it, but I know I'll forget about this by Saturday, so I'm just going to post now. Hold up is there any way I could ask for like, cash gifts. Oh and the only reason I thought to look this up a week or two ago is because Paul...

Does Bacon Come From a Pig?

Yesterday, I did an Instagram story for my online store. At one point, for no real reason, I put a pack of bacon in front of the camera, and I said "I don't know if I should eat this bacon, it was 3 packs for $7, which seems too cheap, but I mean, it all comes from...

The Three Times I Was on TV

Paul Ford just wrote a very good guide to being interview in the media. He makes some excellent, excellent points, it's really amazing how much of it hits home for me. It got me thinking about mistakes I made long ago when dealing with media stuff. I started 2...

Eating in Nashville

I just wrote this blog post title, and then I realized it sounds like that song "Walking in Memphis". Then I wanted to change it to "Eating in Memphis? Hell No, More Like Eating in Nashville!", but I feel like people won't find that as funny as I do. I also realized...

Youtube Idea

I don't think I'll ever get around to doing this, so I guess I'll just write it here: You know how Youtube channels sometimes have celebration videos like "woo we got 5000 followers, wow!" and whatnot - I think it'd be funny to create a channel, and make the first...

adoshif

One time, I was moving, and I found notebooks of lyrics from my high school band. They weren't emotional or anything, but still so, so bad. For about a day, I thought about how badly I needed to erase their existence, in a way that could not be reversed. I cut them...

One of the Worst Topics for a Blog Post

I think back when blogs were conquering the Earth, a common slam on them was that a lot of people would just write "Sorry I haven't updated, I will soon!", and then maybe a little more detail, but not much. I keep holding myself back from doing that, because I have...

The Hidden Danger of Cryonics.

All the smart transhumanists and futurists are really into cryonics. If you're rich, it seems kind of like a no-risk situation to have your body frozen after death, with the hope that scientists will figure out a way to bring you back to life eventually. Worst case...

New Site – I’m in the Business of.. Film?

I'm in the film business. I know what you're saying: "What?". I am saying the same thing. But uhh yeah, I am running a little online store selling film. Camera film. Photo film. You know the stuff. The site is called Buy Film Canada. The main deal is that my biggest...
