The introduction video I wrote for OpenCV.ai is now live! It’s a tight 2 minutes of no bullshit pitching.
So, like, we have a TV channel now. RetroStrange TV to be precise. It plays movies we have featured on Movie Nights past, including some short features and other odds and ends. We are broadcasting Divergent League Baseball there, now, too.
There’s something coming from me about the indieweb, sometime, because I’ve remembered that I need it. I am a person who still feels like they do not really belong anywhere, or even, feels like they specifically do not belong wherever they are.

As announced on retrostrange.com tonight we’ll be streaming a couple of good ‘ol fashioned rubber suit monster movies with Gamera .vs. Barugon and Majin The Monster of Terror, both released in 1966.
My newsletter went out last Thursday like it usually has. I spun up a Patron/Subscriber only Valheim server. I like Valheim.
You can grab yourself a heapin’ helpin’ of Phil’s Newsletter at the usual place. It’s still free. You can still pay me anyway. Just sayin’
This week I launched a big project and talked a bit about the little things.
I wrote about the Smashing Pumpkins album Adore, shared an exclusive guitar picture, and ruminated on leaving it all behind.
I have a newsletter. It arrives at your inbox each Thursday. I write about myself more openly there than I do here. I also write about pro wrestling, video games, what music I’m listening to, what I’m working on, &c.
