Have you done the Renegade yet?
Red Letter Day
A month ago, I adopted a DBD topic of having a bit of butter sitting outside the fridge at room temperature. I kept putting some out and it kept being put back in the fridge. My explanation to the wife and eventual purchase of a butter crock was met with derision and mockery. Let it be known that today, the butter crock is empty and all the Kerry Gold butter has been eaten. The wife has fully adopted my counter-butter campaign. For those of you who've been in any form of relationship, getting someone to completely reverse their mind is something worthy of note.

For Graduation, Cal Students Build ‘Blockeley University’ in Minecraft
What do you do if you’re a college senior with a sense of humor, a canceled graduation and, suddenly, a lot of spare time?
On March 15, UC Berkeley senior Bjorn Lustic got the idea to recreate his graduation in Minecraft, a video game where the objective is to build structures by placing blocks around a 3D environment. He cites a sarcastic Facebook comment as the source of inspiration. A month, a few more Facebook posts and several thousand likes later, the project has grown into a full-scale recreation of the UC Berkeley campus with a waiting list of students trying to get in on the fun of construction.
When IRL events started to disappear around campus, students, like everyone else, turned to the internet. “It’s kind of a natural thing at this point to look online and look to virtual communities to hang out, that’s what we’re used to,” Lustic says.
Twitter is both the best/worst social media platform, but LinkedIn (it counts right?) has to be my least favorite. Just a bunch of techy/entrepreneur-y types that blog about how innovative and great they are and everyone else is so far behind. I saw a post (screenshot on twitter) of someone praising themselves for giving their staff a "self-care power hour" during the middle of the day to do what they need to take care of themselves. They meant a lunch break.
A friend just posted a recommendation for Circus of Books, and I looked up the description. It sounds fascinating! Have any of you watched it?
Description: For decades, a nice Jewish couple ran Circus of Books, a porn shop and epicenter for gay LA. Their director daughter documents their life and times.
