Heya,

This week, I spent some time trying to figure out if my son is a genius or just lucky. Somehow he always manages to insert a USB cable the right side up. I tested it repeatedly.

In the newsletter:

⏲️ The best non-gaming Twitch feeds covering everything from food to Mystery Science Theatre 3000.
⚽ Messi and Ronaldo star in Shrek.
🛸 UFO videos from the Pentagon.

Enjoy,

Chris.

📰 From the Newsroom


The things that kept me busy this week. 🕴️

Watching Amazon is weird. Amazon partnered with SXSW to release the SXSW 2020 festival films to all North American users. All you need is an account, and maybe a VPN, to watch them for free from April 27 until May 6.

Recipes It's going to be a while until I get back to the States to visit with a good meatball sub (and my family). So, I tried this harissa meatball pita because I like to imagine myself as both a fit man and a cook. Easily my greatest achievement.

What I'm trying to learn Front-end. I can barely spell CSS, so finding a good way to practice my limited skills is high on my agenda. This curated list of front-end challenges is perfect for level jumping. I have been looking at a lot of courses, so these tips on learning are very useful.

What I am actually spending time on Non-gaming Twitch channels. All I am going to say is Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Twenty. Four. Seven. Here but I am not responsible for anything.

WordPress online I am also spending a few hours at the free WP Feedback Virtual Summit. There are still two days of talks left covering eCommerce, mental health, SEO, and more.

Meditation I am not sure if I shared this in the past, but Balance is a meditation app that is fairly easy to get started with. They are currently offering a free year for new users.
