…only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.

Set up activity publishing to Mastodon. Part of that effort required spending some quality time cleaning up the configuration on this server. There are comments in those files from 2010. So glad I included those, I can’t remember what I was thinking back in 2010.

For a while, I’ve been thinking about making some changes to the old Good Morning Display. I committed some of those thoughts to “paper” in this post. Now, time to get to work!

New York City finally saw some snow this week and it’s cold. It looks and feels like the arctic tundra out there.

Jammed not once, but twice this week. We did an early, “all ages show” on Monday in addition to the usual Friday night jam. For posterity, here’s our song list roughly in order of proficiency (best to not so best):

  • Rock and Roll Ruby (Setzer)
  • Heroes (Bowie)
  • China Girl (Bowie)
  • Man Who Sold the World (Bowie)
  • This Year’s Girl (Costello)
  • Welcome to the Working Week (Costello)
  • Look Sharp! (Jackson)
  • One More Time (Jackson)
  • Sunday Papers (Jackson)
  • Mary Jane’s Last Dance (Petty)
  • American Girl (Petty)

We should start reaching beyond these five artists. Also, we need a drummer. If you’re interested, hit me up!


A major component of these weeknotes is likely to be links. A major inspiration for this is Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino’s Sunday Scraps.
