The 30 Steps To Mastery

Dear Ben Casnocha,

You totally fucking nailed it, dude.

1. Start
2. Keep going.
3. You think you’re starting to get the hang of it.
4. You see someone else’s work and feel undeniable misery.
5. Keep going.
6. Keep going.
7. You feel like maybe, possibly, you kinda got it now.
8. You don’t.
9. Keep going.

Read the remainder here.

Underground Eats

File under “things I didn’t know about 505 Flower before tonight”:

  • Despite almost everything else in the complex dropping their shutters after lunch, Saffron stays open until 9 PM.  So now I have an option other than Subway, Carl’s Jr., Famima, The Standard or Casey’s.  Even better is the fact that it’s Indian food.  Which I love.  So yay for Saffron!
  • Speaking of Famima, they’ve got a huge one hiding down there.  And it’s stocked better than the one off 6th and Grand.  Their refrigerator case had a pile of extra spicy tuna rolls, the steamer was loaded with bao and the shelves were brimming with a bunch of exotic Pocky.  Until the one right across the street from our building opens up, this totally is my new go-to Famima.

You might think I’m easily swayed, but both of these things (along with the fact that Weiland serves Craftsman) have pretty much redeemed that bomb shelter of a food court for me.

The Last 5 Songs I Bought On iTunes

One of the reasons I love iTunes is because it lets my sometimes questionable and eclectic music tastes be sated with a small handful of button pushes. Yeah, the DRM is a janky pile of shit — as all DRM is — but being able to scratch an itch right away is worth a buck or so to me.

So in the interest of both show and tell time and internet memes, I’m going to start something up. It might not make it any further than the bits and bytes being transferred here — but I’d like to think my few friends who I’m going to ping to do this will humor me at the very least. Who knows, maybe it’ll spread… *shrug*

So without further adieu, here are the last 5 songs I bought from iTunes:

  1. Dio – Holy Diver
  2. The Doors – Riders On The Storm
  3. Frank Black – Los Angeles
  4. Ol Dirty Bastard – Shimmy Shimmy Ya
  5. The Jesus And Mary Chain – Sometimes Always

And the 5 people I’m tagging for this (so long as they actually use iTunes to buy shit, that is) are:

  1. Sean Bonner (Response)
  2. Andre Torrez
  3. Tom Bridge
  4. Matt Haughey
  5. Crystal Williams

Optimally, these people will do it and tag 5 other folks and the chain will continue. But if they don’t, whatever. I’m not going to be a hardass about it or anything.

Update: If you don’t “do” the iTMS, listing purchases from eMusic, Amazon’s new mp3 service, Bleep, or even the last few CDs you bought is totally fine by me. The emphasis is on sharing what’s been buzzing thru your skull so much that you had to get it is the point here.

Two iPhone Apps I’d Like To See

Like most of the other geeky iPhone owners out there, I’ve been playing with lately. While it’s great and all, there are two apps that would make my life complete:

  1. Flickr Uploader: Yeah, I know I can mail photos to Flickr — but doing it one-by-one is just too damn tedious. Besides, I hate that the built-in mail client shrinks photos down to something “friendly”. I’m not quite sure about anyone else, but being able to check off multiple photos and send full resolution versions of them in a batch while I’m at an event would be optimal for me.
  2. Client: I’ve been wanting to upload my on-the-go listening habits to ever since I bought an iPod a few years back. Now that we’ve got an iPod that has always-on internet, why shouldn’t this be possible?

I’m sure that I’m not the only one who would find these applications useful. So who wants to pool together a little money to put a bounty out for them?

Update 1: So it’s not as elegant as I’d like, but iFlickr is a start as far as Flickr uploaders go.
Update 2: I’ve actually had a chance to install the iFlickr package. And after playing with it for a little while, I’ve ended up uninstalling it. Let’s just say it needs plenty of work before I’ll run it again.
