I’m intending to go to Burning Man for a second time. One place where I underdid it, was getting the cheapest bike that fit. It was old. It was rusty. The best thing about it was its blue colour. It was a pain to move anything other than myself with it.

So this year, I’d like to try something different, if a bit spendier: a folding electric bike.

Baba Is You is a delightfully constructed puzzle game from 2017. I like it.

Distractions in Quarantime

about distractions

This situation doesn’t feel real. Time isn’t passing as it normally does. As it should. It’s not really a quarantine.

It’s Quarantime.
