  1. A sleepless internet rabbit hole lead me to the early 80s failure One of the Boys. Any chance anyone has heard of it? Micky Rooney gets out of a retirement home to move in to his grandson’s (Dana Carvey) college pad with roommate (Nathan Lane). Double bonus: Scatman Crothers as Rooney’s friend and Meg Ryan as Carvey’s girlfriend. And it’s ahhh somehow not very good. The past is weird.
  2. Thank you once again. Appreciate you getting it back up before the big event. https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/to?msg=Countdown+to+the+Rapture&
  3. 'cause it came out a couple years back, failed, and was called Meta Portal.
  4. https://www.digitaltrends.com/photography/fujifilm-instax-pal-launch/
  5. A couple suggestions... First, another Serial podcast, The Trojan Horse Affair, an investigation into a mysterious letter appearing in 2014 alleging an Islamic plot to subvert British schools. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-trojan-horse-affair/id1606918193 https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/podcasts/trojan-horse-affair.html Second, two philosophers and a guest discuss controversial propositions in Brain in a Vat, which from the first few listens has been a mixed bag (Imagine there is no gender? 👍 Is Islam more rational than Atheism? 👎), but I bet there are treasures among the episodes. Assume I'm late to the party here, but came across in an article of a professor, Stephen Kershnar, suing to get his position back having lost due to comments made during the Sexual Taboos episode. https://podcasts.apple.com/en/podcast/brain-in-a-vat/id1509951964 https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/braininavat https://www.youtube.com/@BraininaVat/videos
  6. ^ Might want to add the actual Zeiss Loxia 35 f/2 too.
  7. But if you forget about truth, facts, and reality, it's an amazing tower of misinformation, no?
