A delightfully full film that’s had so much to give me as a viewer. I’d easily watch this again if I find myself needing to be reminded of what matters in life, what doesn’t, and how we value those things we often take for granted.
As I stay home and rest up, I find myself thinking back to the days when I didn’t have access to some of the most basic of benefits, such as sick days. I think about how fortunate we are to have universal healthcare here in Canada, but also of how broken and gutted the system we have has become in no small part due to the lack of leadership* at the top of the healthcare structure.
* we have plenty of politicians, but few leaders
“Thanks for your interest in trying out Elk, our work-in-progress Mastodon web client!”
I don’t think I’ll be jumping on the Mastodon bandwagon— I need another Twitter like I need another hole in my head, but if I was I certainly wouldn’t be using a client that tries to mimic Twitter in every way possible.
Elk is really missing out on a golden opportunity to re-invent the social web.
Taken back in October 2022, when I was home with COVID (first and only time, thus far), this is how I feel today.
I hadn’t heard anything previously about this film other than it was worth a watch. I was pleasantly surprised with how The Menu unfolded. Although I'm unlikely to re-watch this in the future, I can easily recommend it to others as worth a watch. (rating scale)
After an initial four month test period of brewing kombucha, using the bulk tea bags I had around the house, I’m now happily using loose leaf tea.
The result of the upgrade in tea choice is a clearer and cleaner tasting brew. I’m looking forward to less unnecessary sediment in my week-to-week experiments and hoping for a more consistent taste too.
