Revamping my a little…

I'm primarily a writer, as well as an incorrigible reader. I've mostly stopped freelancing, so much of what I write on a day-to-day basis shows up at lrhodes.net, if you're curious. I also discuss more academic subjects (like history and philosophy) as well as current events over @lrhodes@scholar.social.

The critical contradiction at the heart of the "Deep State" conspiracy theory is that they have nothing to point to but the bureaucracy, which they desperately need because the bureaucratic state is the source of nearly all of the domestic power available to the presidency.

Sad to report that I am once again rethinking the way that I blog.

Me: I was joking about writing plays a while ago, but maybe I actually should

My Mind: Don't be ridiculous... you have no experience writing dialogue

VEGAN THREE BEAN SUCCOTASH

1. Saute one diced YELLOW ONION in 1tbl of OLIVE OIL until golden.

2. Add one ~14oz can of CRUSHED TOMATOES, breaking apart with a wooden spoon as they cook.

3. A tsp of CUMIN or OREGANO would not go amiss here.

4. Once the color begins to deepened, add 1cp BLACK BEANS, 1cp RED or PINTO BEANS, 1/2cp LIMA or chopped GREEN BEANS. Lower temp.

5. Simmer until most of the liquid is cooked off.

6. Stir in 1/2cp frozen CORN. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve over rice.

Starting to think I may have dreamed this.

Can anyone help me remember the name/url of that blog with the evolved 90s design, e.g. paragraphs with different justifications, dithered backgrounds, 16-bit folder icons, etc?

also me: yes but <fidgets distractedly>
