Re: What are you reading today/book club

I, like many others it would seem, got all fucked up by Normal People the TV show so I decided to get the book. The TV show was astonishingly true to the book, and I think I enjoyed the book more than the show. I felt like I could enjoy the pacing more. (Sally Rooney is the author) I decided to read...

Re: Bikes

Found this at a consignment store in Flagstaff on my way to Boise, had an empty bike rack so I figured why not. $25 for a steel frame and shimano groupset was a pretty good deal. Has two visible dings on down-tube and top-tube but I'm not too worried. It has a shimano 105 groupset that I think is fr...

Re: Here is ramdomthought!

JewTurk why do you think it's bad to bring in Silicon Valley money into rural areas? because of gentrification + pushing out the people who currently live there? Well, that and: just seeing what has happened to the real estate market in the US (specifically states bordering/near CA). People retire ...

Re: Here is ramdomthought!

How do y'all feel about all this talk about wage adjustment based on where you live re: remote workers? It seems popular response is that it's bad. But I feel like bringing silicon valley "bucks" into rural areas like montana/idaho/wyoming is way more problematic than someone getting a 5-1...

Re: Films

I watched Columbus and really enjoyed it! Definitely pulling from Ozu which I enjoyed. I think I'm gonna rewatch some Ozu because of it. I just like that slower 'pace'.

Re: How are you accommodating climate change into your drobe

Re: School

Got a job as an ML engineer at a company in Boulder, CO. I'll get to live somewhere I've always wante...

Jumped ship to the gear train, definitely starting slow but it feels like learning to climb all over again.

This is halfway up a 1000 ft route in McCall.

Re: Music is my boyfriend

Been getting more and more into folk-y type singer-songwriter albums. This one by Twain is one I really dug:



Also Buck Meek (of Big Thief) put out a great solo album on the same label.
