It's even worse than it appears.

Okay I'm in Season 3 of The Newsroom now, and I bet Sorkin isn't writing it, rather it's someone trying to write like Sorkin. It's awful. Unbearable. What would make sense is a final massacre like the end of Scarface. I'd pay to watch that. Say hello to my little friend. 💥#
This song was in the finale of Mr Robot and now I can't stop listening to it. "I've been in this town so long that back in the city I've been taken for lost and gone and unknown for a long long time."#
The lyrics are interesting too. #
I had a feeling of total weariness this morning so I stayed in bed until 10AM, a very late hour for me, and decided finally I Give Up. I no longer am going to care about whether the world is headed off a cliff. I'm no longer going to care about anything I can't do anything about and guess what I feel great now. What a relief. You know what this feels like. When I got home after life-saving emergency heart surgery in 2002 I felt like I was in a dead relative's house. Something I had experienced a few times by then. This was someone else's house. Less than a year later I sold the place and moved to Cambridge where we started BloggerCon and the podcast movement, and what a great move that was. Giving up is the best thing to do. I mean it. #
I compiled a cheat sheet for myself of Old School blogging attributes. Included here to get into search engines. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
