It’s the Practice, not the Gear

John 5 fascinates me. He has to be one of the most talented living guitarists on tour.

I heard of him and found he was playing a local venue on the same day while I was sick and tickets were sold out. One day he’ll return and I can go to a show.

Breakfast Social Club

I can’t take credit for this, but I don’t want to forget it either. Each character’s association with social media is damn near perfect!

Thoughts on Subscription Creep

While some subscriptions clearly aren’t worth the cost to me, others are. The problem is that a bunch of cheap subscriptions add up to a bunch of money.

  • $11.99 for Netflix for 4 screens + ultra HD
  • $11.99 for Hulu no commercials
  • $9.99 for Apple Music
  • $14.99 for HBO Now
  • $13.99 for web hosting
  • $19.99 for Slingplayer
  • $4.99 for CBS

No one feels like much. Together, they’re nearly $90 a month, or more than $1,000 a year.
Ouch.
We cut the cord on cable a long time ago, and we’re still coming out on top compared to the cost of a cable subscription, but we aren’t getting all of the channels but we never watched all the channels.
That isn’t including the puny bit of patronage I am able pay to my favorite Internet acquaintances, particularly Marco Arment and Brett Terpstra. Shout out to 5by5 as well. They’re great!

Patinkin on Rubio

A post title I never imagined writing until today, but definitely for content worth remembering somewhere.
