👾 Link Invasion V3
Random links for you
Hey friends! How are you doing this fine Monday?
Welcome to the 18 new subscribers who have joined since last week. :) Thank you to those of you who shared the newsletter. I really appreciate it.
We are now at 1220 - and veryyy close to one of my favorite numbers - 1234
3 to 6 people a week abandon randomness. It’s quite sad.
We took a trip down to Maryland to visit my family. I FINALLY got to have a real crab cake after several years. You see - my favorite spot was closed back when we went in October. :(
I connected with many of my old high school classmates at a reunion. It was really fun seeing everyone after 10 years!
I’ve been listening to Max Brook’s book Devolution and it’s quite terrifying so far. It’s a fictional account of a remote tech-eco community that runs into well - Bigfoot trouble - after Mt. Rainier erupts.
The first few chapters are slow - but things start kicking off BIG in chapter 5. I have a feeling these last 6 hours of audio are going to be ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING.
I’m very excited - and relieved I’m not going out in the woods any time soon.
I got a pretty bad cold towards the end of the weekend - so this week we’re doing another “link invasion” of cool links as opposed to the typical format. I’ll be honest - I’m currently feeling like a Halo Spartan with a blinking health bar.
One of the advantages of these rare newsletters is that I share many of the cool things I’ve found - but got lost in the “sea.”
Well, let’s dive into Link Invasion V3, shall we?

Make some dank word art like you’re listening to dialup noises on your Windows 95 machine.
This awesome little search engine tool will let you search anything “+Reddit” so you can see what Google surfaces from Reddit about a particular topic. It’s quite fun to find ancient threads about “craziest thing you’ve found in the woods” and that sort of thing.
