I actually did record local on both ends and mix it, and thus why I have already purchased a new microphone, hahaha. I'm glad I can at least be heard, but yeah, one thing to improve for next time already

Little less talking, a little more doing for me. Not sure when our second episode will be, but hey, we can say we've done it now.

That's so neat!

I'm so impatient with any project I undergo, I always want something I can finish in an hour so I can relax or move onto whatever's next, without feeling I have something unfinished I "should" be doing. Learning to make my own pace. So I started whittling while in quarantine (actually have had the knives since xmas, but finally got some basswood to start on. I'm told it's softer and a bit easier for beginners).

Anyways, did that for about an hour the other day, got an owl started, so we'll see how that goes at some point in the future, presumably.

Yeah, I've always done the "Pure Analog," I think, where you're just flicking the right stick forward on timing.

Back in the '08 and '09 days, I just used X and Square. I'm like you, never have been able to line up that damn circle.

If you don't get RDR2, especially on sale, you're insane Crewe. INSANE.


Don't bother with the online, just play the story. It's so good. Do what you feel like doing. I like everything the game has to offer, I like that some of it is so mundane that it can feel like "Wild West Simulator." But then you go into town and start shooting everybody and you get your energy going again.

Hahaha, I want to watch Tiger King but the fiancee is uncomfortable about the treatment the tigers themselves get. Funny thing, Doc's whole thing is in Myrtle Beach. I never went and am certainly glad I didn't, but that's about the kind of people you can expect from Myrtle.

So happy I left there.

We both like Christina Hendricks (both because of Mad Men and uh, obvious other reasons) and Rhetta from Parks and Rec, and with the quarantine it was worth giving it a shot. I like it, I think any fan of Ozark would like it as well. Great cast, Matthew Lillard is great as the husband to Hendricks. Definitely worth a look, despite the CBS aspect.

So, I gave this a peek yesterday, and I bailed on the first episode. Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind, but to me, just the way it was filmed and directed just screamed paint by numbers tv.
Perhaps Ill get back to it when Im a bit more on the cheerful side, I was kinda ho hum after just finishing GLOW, so maybe that had an effect.


Frame of mind matters. I'd say push through. I'm not going to say the show's for everyone, but even I wasn't fully sold through the first season, although I enjoyed it. The show didn't really get its hooks in until season 2. Season 2 takes bolder choices (and walks back some of them, but still).

I enjoy the humor aspect of it too, but yeah, the production budget is NOT HIGH. Plan on spending a lot of time inside their homes. LOT of time.

Now Instacart workers are striking, along with some Amazon warehouse workers and Whole Foods workers (all owned by Amazon, apparently? WF I knew about, not IC though).

Way to go, Crewe. :P

Gearing up for season 3 soon, we loved the first two seasons of Ozark.

We've been watching Good Girls, which is sort of the all-female, CBS-drama equivalent to Ozark. The first season was ok, not my favorite but entertaining enough to keep me watching, but the second was vastly improved. If you like Ozark, I'd recommend it. First two seasons are on Netflix and the third is currently airing on CBS and on-demand on Hulu.

I may take up the "RememberThisPod Challenge" while in quarantine. I need to watch more older movies.

I'm at Microsoft, so yeah. WFH is recommended and approved, although coming into the office is still allowed. I was going into the office still, until a coworker on my team mentioned he'd started having symptoms, so I've been WFH since Friday. Last update was suggested to continue WFH until April 7.

Autumn's WFH for the Gates Foundation too, but with their office closed and so many of the organizations they work with (well, that her team works with) temporarily shutting down, she doesn't have nearly the workload she used to.
