I am planning to (hopefully) finally finish Blacksad Under the Skin today...I've officially waited long enough that I'm going to need a refresher before I begin. Going live in about 15 minutes. twitch.tv/tehjer_

Listen. I'm gonna need y'all to handle your business, get your vaccine, and get your shit together. I need this whole pandemic thing under control by September so I can go to Riot Fest, you hear? Tighten up!

I'm done with poke number 2. In a couple weeks I'll be as safe as I've felt in a year. Go get your vaccine if you're at all medically capable...if you need help, let me know. ✔️

If there's anything that I've learned about myself from movies of the 80s and 90s, it's that I'm a sucker for an impassioned speech. I suspect I'm especially susceptible because I'm so envious of the ability to rouse enthusiasm in that way--it mystifies me.

I've gone back and re-read this repeatedly since I first saw it. I'm deeply saddened that that was her experience, and it's a great reminder for me how much of a responsibility I bear to be vigilant as to the environment team members here work in. nytimes.com/2021/04/07/opinion

To me, this is especially important after the employment year we have all just had. The seriousness with which QL/Rocket has taken COVID-19's impact on our team and our city has been amazing. ❤

For those that know me, that I'm still here after nearly 5 years should be all the evidence you need that this place is pretty great to work...but if you needed more, here you go: @RocketCompanies just made #5 on the @FortuneMagazine list quickenloans.com/press-room/20

Time for a socially distant date night with my lovely wife. I really dig that Detroit is doing this to help keep folks coming downtown! Tonight, The Croods!

I'm unbelievably excited...a tattoo artist that I've been following for a long time hoping to get on their books has an opening and I've booked it!! I've been lucky to get some really great artists to mark me up <3

The "Shopping Cart Theory" as a test of your self-governance readiness got a lot of mileage over the last year (medium.com/be-unique/the-curio) but a much more visible barometer came this year: the simple mask.

It's an efficient "at-a-glance" tool to gauge someone's empathy and ability to self-govern...

Not wearing a mask? Completely lacking in empathy
Mask under their nose? Possible reserves of empathy...maybe
Mask wearer? Exceeds the bare minimum

COVID-19, positive 

I can now schedule a COVID vaccine through the City of Detroit at no cost! And so can anyone else who lives in the city and is age 16 or older!

Just got my first Bill Gates 5G Tracking chip installed. Quick, painless, and my understanding is that after the second shot in a few weeks I'll get way better cell reception.

But seriously, go get vaccinated.
