Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

Beware of weak men. They’re the most dangerous, because they’ll do anything for a little power.

Playlist pieces

we’ll both forget the breeze, most of the time
I can’t take my eyes off of you…

...

You stood beneath a burning tree
and hoped to rescue leaves

Comparing the Bose NC700 and the Sony WH-1000XM4

slated in mainstream, consumed at 7:50 pm

TL;DR The sound through either of these headphones is fine, solid noise-cancelling, fairly comfortable, the software has notable issues and my user experience with both has been frustrating; UX a bit worse with the Sony.

Update, seven months later: I’m definitely not happy with either of them, though I enjoy several parts of life much better with good noise-cancelling headphones on. If I had to do it over again, I would choose the Bose for slightly better UX and significantly better phone calls (particularly for the experience of the person on the other end, blocking out unwanted background noise on my end).

Better on the outside

slated in consumed, mainstream at 1:20 pm

I don’t like the new interior of the entrance. Now instead of “bigger on the inside”, it’s “extra-dimensional addition that couldn’t be seen/accessed from the outside”.
… Maybe they’ll explain some brilliant reasoning for all this. Until then, I don’t like it.

Side-by-side Comparison: Google Pixel 4 XL (2019) vs. Pixel 3 XL (2018) vs. Google Pixel 2 XL (2017)

Spreadsheet to Compare Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 4 XL phones by Google. (Added Pixel 4XL October 15, 2019)

128gb storage capacity is perfectly respectable as an option, however as a maximum option for storage capacity it is simply pathetic in 2018. It was woeful in 2017. All the more impressively pathetic in 2019.

My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro. Is the hype justified? I’ll finally be able to answer this in a few hours.
P.S. I like that my keyboard apparently already knows how to spell Totoro.

Gmail understands me

I like that Gmail considered 8:00am Thursday as “tomorrow” even though it’s currently 2:50am Thursday. Gmail understands me.

Matt Nathanson's new album

Matt Nathanson’s new songs are good; I just can’t identify, so can’t really listen. If you’re hung up on your past and do not want to move forward, I recommend his latest album. Otherwise, there’s a world of happiness and other good music to have, including some of his wonderfully happy older songs.
