I love hearing about what people loved in movies. Hearing about what they hate? Not so much. If someone is reviewing a movie and all I hear is a bunch of hate it's the most boring conversation. But, hearing what parts of the story hit hard, or what was intriguing, or anything else that was enjoyable? Yeah, I can't get enough of that.

Imaginary Words' hot take on the metaverse is 100% on point:

"Now, to be honest, whenever I’ve seen promotional videos of what the metaverse is going to look like, I’ve been a little underwhelmed.

Things I've said to people when their favourite band goes a new direction:

* Bands need to reinvent themselves to stay creative
* You still have all their old stuff to love
* There's a near infinite supply of new music you now have the chance to try

Now I have to eat my words. Architects dropped a new single and I hate it so much.

So.... if anyone has suggestions now is a good time to throw them my way.

Tip #1 for how to make your UI not look like it was designed by a developer: stop centering your text everywhere especially multi-line text. Why do devs love centered text?

It's Monday morning and life is good. Kids slept all night, I have my headphones on, a wonderful Nepal tea, a peanut butter sandwich, and some unit tests that need writing.
