After accidentally launching Steam, I found myself playing a limited-time demo of Portal Knights for over three hours. I wouldn’t have let myself lust after such alluring worlds while writing my first novel, “A Story About Self-Confidence: What’s In A Name?,” a month~long story at Eville Medical in the Sammohini Arc of “The Story,” but after completing all my musts for the day, and not feeling terrible, I figured, why not give into digital allure?
Antiquatedness and needless wordiness prevent File… Don’t Pile! from being a fantastic paperwork filing system. The book is best approached as a casual guide to skim through when you need some organizing inspiration, rather than anything that could significantly help you improve messy paperwork piles. Computer technology from just after this book’s 1986 publication has rendered sections of solutions woefully so-so. Still, there is more substance here than not, so let’s clip out some useful suggestions.
A “taco festival” with only one vendor dedicated to tacos? Excelling in gluttony should be a priority for Sabroso Taco Festival, like noteworthy food festival Bite of Seattle, if they intend to overtake retiring punk rock festival Warped Tour. If music festivals are declining in ticket sales in the United States, new and remaining festivals need more diverse content enticing wider audiences that might otherwise only be moderately interested in music. Sabroso is nearly there.

I enjoy working the gig life because I get paid to travel, meet people, make friends, and see how people work. I can steal the ideas I like, shed the ideas I dislike, and adapt to more circumstances quicker. If I’m away from “Zeal,” my home office, for long hours on one gig, then I can figure out ways to make the time I do have here more productive, especially as I renovate the space.
There’s a gag in New Game!, a cute-girls-doing-cute-things anime about videogame development, where director Shizuku (right) presents whimsically unreasonable change requests to chief programmer Umiko (center). It’s amusing, until you’ve worked enough gigs where customers innocently request major changes even after deadline. Then, you empathize with Umiko. Some adjustments are fine. When seemingly-innocent requests actually require extensive research, dev-time, and rewrites, the customer isn’t always right. Showing these career nuances makes watching New Game! worthwhile.
Season 1: ★★★★☆ [4/5]
Season 2: ★★★☆☆ [3/5]

Isn’t it boring that the English alphabet only has 26 letters? Isn’t it boring that rowing only has 4 positions? The more often I row and write, the more often I think hitting a solid rowing catch, drive, finish, or recovery position can compare with hitting a solid word choice, sentence execution, provocative thought, or decisive document. Is it boring that one letter can change everything or not hitting the right position can ruin your rowing flow?
Attending concerts is therapeutic for me. When all goes well, I’m permanently motivated! Even when I must invent a new rating variable to express my contempt toward a performance, it’s usually worth the inconvenience of leaving my comfort zone to hang out with old friends, meet new acquaintances, or encounter interesting side stories. Seeing a leashed dog at a show was weird and that it wasn’t obviously a service or therapy dog was weirder still…

This review compilation format is working out better than I thought! Considering the sheer volume of photos I take at concerts (366 photos, totalling 1.02GB), it’s easy just to upload my favorite photos from each band to Twitter. Instagram has a terrible, mobile-only upload format, so I infrequently post there. It’s just too bad I took too many gambles on shows with only a few actually being worth attending. Guess you gotta give everything a go…

WANNA SEE MY MICRO REVIEWS OF THIS RECENT BATCH OF CONCERTS? KEEP ON READING!
The BodyCraft VR500 rowing machine is acceptable. Pushing it to its limit constantly – rowing at its maximum “32” resistance for 5 minute sets, over 50 times or for roughly 4 hours, for months, and always with good form to not cause erroneous wear – I’ve found demotivating shortcuts: avoidably bent handlebar and broken plastic bits. There’s no way I’d pay $1600 for this! Maybe $50, tops, and it certainly wouldn’t be my first choice if I needed to replace my Concept2. Why?
