One of my favorite tweets ever from @shitmydadsays “Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn’t invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that.” It’s a bit silly how we pride ourselves on the brands we own and the people we know. Same goes for [...]

This is my 800th post. Yes, I was surprised as well. But it’s amazing how far a bit of consistency over time will take you. Like all things, blogging isn’t for everyone. I’m sure there are some good reasons, however I find there are far too many people that I greatly admire who refuse to [...]
