On 1 December 2019 I created this roadkill and other observations blog as a way to leave facebook by 31 December 2019, because zuckerberg, v. putin, cambridge analytica, fascism, ad nausea.
13 days later, all’s good.
Six posts have been published so far, some were more liked than others, and I got some followers.
I read Mark Manson’s book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. That changed my life in a good way, like when I read Kerouac’s On The Road back in the 80s.
On the cinema front I saw The Irishman. I did not write a review, for the same reason that I don’t take photos of sunsets anymore.
The office Christmas lunch yesterday was superb! Photos (ok, there is only one) are available on request, for a “special price”. Order before midnight and receive a special bonus; the “edited content”.
I’ve been listening to Alanis Morisette. Probably because of the New York Times article about her stage production. It’s a good thing.
This is being written at Starbucks, for hipster cred.
Why do a newsletter? Because my mentor Austin Kleon does, that’s why.
