ONE COOL THING

I receive no payment or kickbacks for my opinion of what's "cool" or what's "things"

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes ...

Turn and face the strange ...

As cliche as it may be to use that lyric, the truth is that I've been a busy worker bee and sadly, haven't been updating this section as much as I'd like. 

And now it—and I—am ready for a change. So watch this spac...

My house has an office, which is supposed to be a third bedroom, if the occupant of said bedroom remained tiny and didn't require things like personal space or furniture. The color scheme is a gray/blue wall with dark wood floors, white trim, and blah blah blah blah bl...

Hello friends! 

It's been... phew...too long. I could go into all the things that have happened in the past 6 months that have kept me from maintaining this but...

TL;DR: Stuff. Life. Work. Family. More stuff. Business and busy-ness. 

The good news is that I'm back and re...

Hello friends! 

It has been more than three months since my last post because of a real doozy of a concept: TIME. There's not enough of it, it's spent in strange/boring/arduous ways, it's something I crave and hate simultaneously.

Some Times happen too fast (hello, past...

If you were to meet me for the first time in real life, here's what I think you'd learn within 5 minutes:

— I prefer red wine to white, but I'll drink whatever you got. Oh and here, I brought a bottle of Pinot Noir. 

— I get really into something, binge it, try to evange...

I have a confession. In 2017, I read one book. That's —>one single<— book. 

Which for some people, is a totally acceptable number. But for me, a writer, an editor, a person of literary aspirations and interests, not reading is akin to fish not swimming or fighters...

Does anybody have Al Gore's phone number? I want to have a chat about this Internet he created.

Information is like influenza—it's real, it's everywhere, it's running rampant through the streets, plaguing everybody. Most days, I want a protective barrier to keep the unf...

"Friends come and go, like the waves of the ocean, but the true ones stay like an octopus on your face."

Whether you find that stupidly profound or profoundly stupid...whatevs. Point is, Octopus Face Friends are the best!

I'm at a place in my life where I have cultivated...

I’m not sure when podcasts became “a thing” to the rest of the world but they’ve always been up my alley. I feel like the past two years have showered our collective ears with great podcasts.

What's it called when someone exuberantly talks about that thing they are supe...

 "Wait, so you just dance in a room full of women and you're sober?"

This is almost always the response I get when I talk about Dance Dance Party Party, or DDPP. And Hells yeah! You should try it!

I attended my first DDPP almost 2 years after first hearing of it. Worry...

Wait, so what's this page about?

TRUTH: There is not enough time in the day for all the things I want to look at on the Internet. Add in social media feeds and discussion boards and hot takes on the latest Netflix binge and Poof! Big chunks of my days are lost to the black hole of the Internet. And I can't find whatever it was I really wanted to save and read later, or share, or comment on, etc. 

 

This page—One Cool Thing—has the sole purpose of helping curb my electronic hoarding habit. I put up One Cool Thing (as deemed by my subjective standards) to clear the clutter and shine a light on the things I really am interested in. I can also point to this page when I want to share something with a friend who appreciates Cool Things. It's the Internet manifested! 

More TRUTH: I am not paid anything—not dollars, favors, gold stars, or Starbucks rewards points—to feature any brands, people, items, etc. I consider myself the lone curator and target audience of this page; it's for my own organizational benefit and if there's any residual enjoyment, well, I think that's a cool thing too.
