I went on vacation with just one child. Here’s why it’s going to become a tradition. - The Washington Post
Nathan doesn’t brag about the trip like it was the greatest vacation. But something did shift in our relationship. Each of us occasionally brings up a tenting failure in Indiana, a roller coaster in Virginia or that turtle shimmying across the road in North Carolina, and we smile, laugh or shake our heads. These are a few of the many moments that at the time seemed rather simple, maybe even forgettable. But how often we are mistaken. Something tells me these little imprints will age well, and in time they will illuminate a colorful patchwork quilt of memories. What an enduring gift for both of us.

summoned by the power of the Ouija. the 4 foundation guitarists asked a question (which has since been forgotten), put their hands on their guitars, (like hands on the planchette), and surrendered. no conscious musical choices were allowed, guided in duration by the serotonin blue lamp. the guitars were mixed in mono to eliminate any individual personality shreds.
the recording was then sent to Yosh, she channeled conversations onto it, next to Christian (chfs), he added earthen tones through his own obscure vibrational methods. we had need of one more element, the soloist. our call was answered by kevin hufnagel who wrote and performed the solo titled "The Bombing of Luna".
special thanks to Loserface Staplegun Gluesniffer (zero mind race through the vacuum).

"As for the ultimate fate of the site, I'll have more to say about that soon. Delicious has over a billion bookmarks and is a fascinating piece of web history. Even Yahoo, for whom mismanagement is usually effortless, had to work hard to keep Delicious down. I bought it in part so it wouldn’t disappear from the web.

This is the fifth time Delicious has been sold. Founded in 2003, the site received funding from Union Square Ventures in 2005, and sold to Yahoo later that year for somewhere between $15-$30M.

In December of 2010, Yahoo announced it was ‘sunsetting’ Delicious, an adventure I wrote about at length. The site was sold to the YouTube founders in 2011. They subsequently sold it to Science, Inc. in 2014. Science sold it to Delicious Media in 2016, and last month Delicious Media sold it to me.

Do not attempt to compete with Pinboard.

Pitch Deck by Fred Benenson — Kickstarter
Pitch Deck is a game where you and your friends make ridiculous, creative pitches for objectively bad startup ideas.

The concept is super simple—combine a Pitch card from your hand with a Company card on the table to create a new business. Then everyone makes a quick elevator pitch describing what their company does. One person plays an investor, who decides which company everyone will secretly fund that round. At the end of the game, the funding amounts are revealed, and there are two winners: the person who pitched the most valuable company and the person who invested the most in that company.

The Moodring has been in “development hell” for about two years. This reverb pedal has turned out 
to be the most revised and re­designed project since madbeanpedals began (some seven or eight 
different designs before release!) But, I’m happy to say that I think the Moodring is not only one of the 
best Belton Brick­based reverbs out there, but also one of the best sounding MBP projects. It has 
character, ambience and even a bit of weirdness if you dial the knobs right. While the part count is 
fairly high (more on par with an analog delay) it requires almost no tweaking or adjustment. Just plug
it in and let your fat E chords rip!
