I live in Cochecton, New York. Wrote a novel in 2007 that no one read, but was named a Foreword Magazine Book of the Year. Also had stuff in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, McSweeney’s, and Truly*Adventurous.
Anyway, here's "Somewhere Only We Know".

Beating Final Level on SUPERHOT VR (Oculus Quest 2 Game) - YouTube
I got my son an Oculus for Christmas and sort of got obsessed with it... Really dug playing SUPER HOT and had to show off killing it in the last level.
Been using the Oculus Quest 2 I got for Sammy for XMas while he's not around. It's pretty trippy how immersive the thing is. Anyway, here's me beating the final level of a game called Superhot.

Guess Who? is way more fun with completely subjective questions. "How many DUIs does your person have?" "Does your person pretend their partner is just their roommate in front of their grandparents?"

Got to hit the slopes today at Holiday Mountain. First time skiing since around 2002. Was relieved I could still do it.

Oculus Quest 2 bought marked-up in a Dollar General parking lot an hour out of town since every store in a 100 mile radius was sold out.

Thought I could use a French dating app to practice my French, but the bots don't even speak the language. Quel domage.

They didn't actually have any cookies. But I got fruit snacks, Cheez-Its, and a cranberry juice box.

Really tired of social media for a number of different reasons, but still occasionally feel the urge to share thoughts and pictures with the 2-3 people who follow me on different platforms. A blog might seem like a sensible answer, but that's always overwhelming and never holds my interest long. Piecing together 140 characters that no one will read is a lot more appealing than writing a couple thousand words that no one will read.

So, I built this. It doesn't look like much, but it's got a pretty nifty backend (if I do say so myself) that makes it more or less a clone/amalgam of all the major social media websites. And since I host it, I have full and total control over every video, photo, or note I post.

I have a long-term vision of getting the code for it tidied up enough to be able to have other people run it on their own websites, and allow said websites the ability to connect with other websites on the same platform so that there could potentially be a traditional social-media-esque feed.

Which basically means that a random visitor to your website just sees your posts, but when you, the owner of the website, visit it, you see your posts intermingled with the latest posts from websites you follow, and have all of the usual social media methods for interaction (liking/commenting). But in a completely decentralized system.

Just an idea, and I'll probably get bored of it before I get far, but in the meantime, at least I have an easy way to store thoughts and memories outside of Facebook/Instagram/Twitter.
