The only thing I heard all day was "Are you listening?"

Do we really have to do this every day? Do we really have to spend most of our days at work, just to get food and shelter and things that everybody needs? I understand if you want really good Mexican food sometimes like I do, then it's okay to work a few hours to get something special. If you want a car that can carry your whole family, then you can work for that. But if you just want to eat and sleep, it shouldn't take so much time to earn that. People should be doing better things with their days instead of content marketing and value proposition validation.
This will bring the total number of official emojis to more than 3,000.
Email would be a lot less annoying and actually quite reasonable if we all removed our signatures and automatic quoting of the previous message. Both of those features have outlived their usefulness. I’m going to do it now.
For the last goddamn time: I am not a robot.
One of the great things about Sweden is that it is essentially cashless. One of the bummers about that is that I rarely get to carry around the cool 100 kr banknotes with Greta Garbo on them or the 200 kr with Ingmar Bergman.
I just misspelled “social media” in a note and it was autocorrected as “apocalypse.” After almost dropping my phone in horror, I’m making a drink.
“May contain traces of seafood” Whaaat? How could you not know if you put fish in it? Every time I have seen a fish – living or dead – it has freaked me out. That’s not something I would forget seeing in the kitchen.

Maybe my soulmate is someone who has fingerprints all over her computer screen or coughs into her hands or has a broken phone screen or puts two spaces after a period or uses an Android or makes presentations with white backgrounds or uses WhatsApp. I never gave her a chance.
There are so many things to know about.
I just celebrated Elvis Presley’s 84th birthday by seeing “That’s the Way It Is” on the big screen here in Stockholm, Sweden. A true thrill. The last time I saw it was on VHS in the ‘90s in Kentucky. The King lives on.
The great Kentucky songwriter Tom T Hall said, “You can’t have both sanity and creativity.” But I WANT both!
It’s so weird when you think it’s a different time than it is.
I have always maintained that “guess what” is not a question, it’s a command. Have I been wrong […]
Between all the workin’ and drinkin’ and sleepin’ and complainin’, I hardly have time to write songs anymore.
I know that internet and social media companies are the devil. I’ve known this for a long time. […]
I thought my day sucked until I saw a guy on the bus with a Dell laptop working on a PowerPoint slide called “Scaled Agile Framework – Learning Objectives” on his way home from work. I guess my day wasn’t so bad after all.
It's finally Friday, I'm free again. I got my motor running for a wild weekend. It's finally Friday, I'm out of control. Forget the workin' blues and let the good times roll.
You know those people who wear a big top hat that has biplane goggles on it – what’s that all about?
Where can I get these chill pills everyone keeps recommending I take?
I have read lots of books and articles about Apple and Steve Jobs. I don’t recall any of the main characters ever using these words: value proposition, agile, ideate, customer journey, external validation, disruption, entrepreneur, deliverables, human capital.
Despite my decades of experience washing dishes, my damage and loss rates are still too high.
Christmas... do we really have to do this EVERY year?
If you’re wearing long pants, you should also be wearing socks. It’s that simple.
Every time I eat cheese doodles it reminds me that I don’t really like cheese doodles that much.
Thank you, Brett Kavanaugh, for ruining one of my favorite Tom T. Hall songs.
I saw First Man tonight, really loud and large in a Stockholm cinema. Holy fucking shit. It is beautiful.
Keep on asking me, LinkedIn. I will never download your app. I will dismiss your pop up a thousand more times more. You will never break me.
