No Thanks

Being real also means risking to feel really sad. And that is one reason why, so often, we prefer iPads over guitars.

We can just say “no thanks” to technology if it doesn’t make sense to us. New is not inevitable. New doesn’t mean need.

We can say no thanks to AI phone bots but still use ChatGPT to help us understand Aristotle’s Metaphysics in the original. We can be both critical and appreciative of new technology without categorically accepting or rejecting it.

Everything You Need To Know To Steam Great Milk

The fat has begun to break down and there’s nothing you can do to make that steam any better.

One quick thing about fat that’s also worth noting is that fat affects flavor release in a drink

generally, milk foams better the further it is from its use by date because it’s the sort of breakdown of these fats that reduce its foam ability. And milk that foams badly or milk that has this issue, you’ll hear it almost fizz in the pitcher afterwards.

Everyone’s a sellout now

Art is complicated and doing it right is even harder. In our consumerist civilisation, it is complex to do something for the sake of something. But I feel like we should be able to.

Mindset - Surfing and Fishing — Yonder

surfing as the journey, not always the destination

If we surf to connect, to attempt to decode nature, to be open to the transfer of energy from the sea to ourselves, to carve ourselves out some personal time then surfing is a form of therapy, of meditation, medicine

Proof of life, small victories, and vision | Simply Ranked

Detach from the expectations of the internet. Take your time with projects because you owe it to yourself to make something original to you. There is no rush.

To desire to keep up with what is going on is nearly impossible in the world we live in. Whether that be the standards set by social media, tricks being done or the temporary styles that come and go. I advise anyone to develop their own relationship with whatever craft they take on.

Tony Hawk Showed Me What’s Sacred About Cities - The New York Times

In real life, skating is an art form that requires constant sacrifice, physical pain and public embarrassment for the sake of an ephemeral few seconds of pure beauty. You have to fall a thousand times before you succeed. The Tony Hawk games aren’t concerned with that. They recreate the iterative satisfaction of skating — the feeling that, with enough practice, you can do something miraculous — without all the concussions, bloody knees and shattered wrists.

I assume most people don’t binge-read my logs, so I have no pressure to perform or narrow my scope like an entrepreneur would.

Daily Writing Habit: Emergency Kit

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.

Skateboarding’s Anthropologist: An Interview with Ed Templeton on Wires Crossed

That is what the observer-participant dilemma is. We get to a swimming hole and I’m sitting there like, “Do I want to document this or do I want to have fun and swim?” Sometimes you can’t do both. I can’t just leave my camera out in the dirt somewhere while I’m swimming. It’s an either-or situation sometimes. So that’s what I mean, there were times I just ended up participating and not photographing stuff.

Video has been the currency for skateboarding for so long, teams would build up clips to make a video and that was the main goal. And now, everything is just shared on Instagram immediately. It has ruined the whole framework of how skate videos were made, how a lot of companies made money. But that’s really hard to do now because there’s just so much you can see online. People do save up video parts, but then they drop on the Thrasher site for free and people watch, and it feels like it has about a two-week shelf life. I think that’s why people look back to some of those older videos with nostalgia.

Buy wisely

The best things to splurge on are the things you use the most. If you sit on a chair eight hours a day, then a nice chair is probably a good investment.

Thoughts On Thoughts — Good Enough

Ultimately, a thought is just a thought – it’s not reality. And we might do well to extend a healthy skepticism toward ones that show up within, especially those gnarly ones that tell us stories about ourselves that are negative or harmful

Bad Ideas Are Fun — Good Enough

once you loosen up your brain by coming up with ten bad ideas, some good ideas may follow.

But here’s another thing: we’re not great at judging if an idea is good or bad. So write all of your ideas down. Go back and read through your bad ideas occasionally. Something might surprise you.

Issue #39 Live Simply: The Complicated Truth

Many aspects of our lives are intentionally slow. We have rejected the traditional path, the daily grind, the rat-race and instead opted to try and make a living doing things we love. We do not strive for material wealth, we strive for time in Nature. We live in a world of beauty and wonder, shaped by forces of unfathomable magnitude and we refuse to let society blind us to that fact.

“Simplify your life. Don’t waste the years struggling for things that are unimportant. Don’t burden yourself with possessions. Keep your needs and wants simple and enjoy what you have. Don’t destroy your peace of mind by looking back, worrying about the past. Live in the present. Simplify!” ~ Henry David Thoreau
