I think boycotts are generally pretty dumb. They're ineffective when they involve a single dude outside the unicorn demographic (AKA old and tragically unhip) who doesn't spend a lot of money on tangible goods. Doesn't matter. I'm never spending another dime on Goya products. Support who you want, but take off the tin foil hat.

Boy oh boy, I have never done well in science classes.

Photojournalists are turning in amazing, powerful work during COVID. I know I've said it a few times, but we are going to owe a huge debt to them five, ten, twenty years from now as we reflect on these weird times.

Still over the moon with the Blundstones. Sure, they might be the Subaru of Seattle shoes, but when something works...

I can't sign off without including a couple of photos. I wanted to add more and talk about composition (bad composition), but I'm too tired, and I'm turning in early.
