Hello fellow Tooters! I'm a blogger, vlogger, and podcaster based in the Portland, OR area. I make videos about essentialism and travel in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I write and talk about the intersection of art, technology, and a free (as in freedom) internet.

Check out my profile for links to my work and to check out all the photos I post here (so you can avoid that other commercial photo service!). I love chatting so feel free to @ me!

What on Earth 1 (or any other Earth in the multiverse) does essentialism have anything to do with Captain Cold, Wabi-Sabi, or Blade Runner 2049? Let's find out in today's Essentialism Challenge!

There's something uniquely satisfying about taking a nighttime stroll through an urban garden. 🌃🍂

My 36th birthday is coming up this month, and something I’ve been wanting to do for years is promote a fundraising campaign for charity: water. So that’s exactly what I’m doing! Your donation will directly help bring clean drinking water to communities around the world. 🙏🏻💜

I totally don't care about follower counts, so you totally shouldn't try to follow me in order to bump me up to 100. I'm completely content having only 98 followers! 🤣

@jalcine I agree! He really nailed the whole "barely holding my existential shit together" vibe.

Rewatched Blade Runner 2049 again last night…I hadn’t seen it since my first viewing in the theater (which was quite the experience). Good God I love this movie. As expected I picked up on a number of things during this subsequent viewing I hadn’t before. Of most interest to me are the biblical themes…for example, Officer K at the end is a type of Jesus figure. I’ll have to write more in a spoiler review some time! (Also, I enjoyed the movie soundtrack even more this time around…so-o-o good.)

Light trails on the Hawthorn Bridge

The Hawthorne Bridge is a truss bridge with a vertical lift that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, joining Hawthorne Boulevard and Madison Street. It is the oldest vertical-lift bridge in operation in the United States and the oldest highway bridge in Portland. It is also the busiest bicycle and transit bridge in Oregon, with over 8,000 cyclists and 800 TriMet buses (carrying about 17,400 riders) daily.

@Avalon Try Netlify. They specialize in static site builds and their free plan is quite generous.

@jalcine Looks nice! Maybe I'll try it out as an alternative to Gulp on my Jekyll websites…

@jalcine Ahh. Using Webpack or Gulp or something like that?

@jalcine I recommend looking into Stimulus…just enough smarts to make JS/HTML interface coding pleasant, but not some huge monstrous framework that takes over everything. 🙂

Some fun I had last month roaming through the wild forests of Oregon near (you don't have to go far to find amazing scenery!)

🎙 New episode!

In which I present a video of great planetary significance, dribble a ball over to the fine purveyors of podcast player Castro, drop a Chinese dragonfly on Google, and talk YET AGAIN about weird religion!

I got a *ton* of awesome rain-at-night city photos in earlier this morning…I can't wait to fully load them in and start processing! 📸
