Listen y’all know I love Nike but I’m struggling to think of features for my shoes that could be updated with software

Behold Nike's Adapt BB self-lacing shoe. This isn't Nike's first self-lacing shoe, but it is its first connected shoe. Because it works with an app, Nike can update the shoe's features over time—like an operating system. They go on sale tomorrow for $350 wired.trib.al/QXBOH0W

Is Monster Mash the song that Monster Mash is about, or is Monster Mash about another, second song also called Monster Mash?

Basically we need to allow some space for our public figures to fuck up, think about what they’ve done, and get better

I think a lot about who benefits from making me and Ilhan Omar enemies

Or making Pelosi and AOC enemies

Or shifting the focus to Warren’s heritage-or-not, from her plan to tax the everlivingfuck out of the wealthy

Ain’t the American people and the fabric of civil society, pals

I can’t absolve Warren, I’m not Native American. But I reckon there’s absolutely nothing to be gained from painting Ilhan Omar as an irredeemable enemy

In both cases, we have multiple instances where a public figure has said and done things that are flatly problematic

Buuuut they’re also both showing willingness to learn and figure how to NOT do that thing

The parallel cases of Elizabeth Warren and Ilhan Omar prove it’s well past time that the left works out when and how to forgive and move on

I miss the old-fashioned times, when recipe blogs were not thinly disguised memoirs

The song was Neneh Cherry’s Buffalo Stance BTW

TFW the store plays a pop song you haven’t heard since 1988 and somehow you still know all the words

I have never felt so old

@dealingwith LONG ago! :) Though there was a sequel to the crawl space story involving missing insulation, a hole in the foundation, and BEES

I WISH I HAD LEARNED THIS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO OMG

@GammaGuts @ChuckWendig Tangentially, the most important lesson I ever learned from drag queens:

Use a piece of bread to pick up spilled glitter.

It even works on leather and suede.

Anyone else out there have an iPad Pro where the screen is intermittently unresponsive lately, or am I looking at a hardware failure?
