This is a now page, a page that I update every so often to let you know what I’m up to. It’s inspired by Derek Sivers’ now page. It allows a seperation of the “what I’m doing” from the “who I am” and “what I’ve done”.
Right now I’m basically vibing in the rural United States, having been on sabbatical for a year. I mean, I call it a sabbatical but it’s more of a weird covid break combined with wanting to randomly tinker around with other things. Dealing with corporate dashboards gets a bit soul draining after awhile. Would like to eventually move to a more walkable urban environment as the kick-in-the-pants to be (more) social. Difficult to want to do things when you have to drive 30 minutes.
I try to do most of my tracking on goodreads. I know, evil Amazon, but the API is pretty good. I try to backup my data but I’m not sure what other good alternatives are. Feel free to suggest some.
There’s a neat extension called Quotebacks for chrome/firefox that lets you record snippets of text. It’s useful for display, but it also saves things as JSON, which I parse and just toss into this site.
- https://justin.vc/elfeed includes all the various sites I keep in my RSS reader.
I probably -should- cut it back a bit on media consumption. I usually have a single show I use as my “going to bed” show, and then high art/prestige I’ll binge assuming they’re available all at once. I last watched ( show / movie respectively):
- anilist - This counts a bit as reading/watching since I use it to track my anime and manga. I don’t really use the social features but scrobble to it from apps.
- letterboxd - TODO - make a letterboxd?
I don’t listen to a lot of music, feel free to check my recently played tracks on last.fm at brickfrog.
The embed is a spotify playlist that I’ve been listening to recently on spotify:
- rateyourmusic.com - I don’t use this much, but I do use it to track my music collection. I’m not sure if I’ll keep it up, but I do like the idea of having a collection of music I’ve listened to.
