Of actual solutions to problems (also something about Snowpiercer)

#shareyourkape #friedhats #indonesiafrinsa #anaerobicprocess

I’ve been watching the second season of the Snowpiercer series on Netflix and I absolutely love it. Just finished what technically is the penultimate episode of the season (although it is just episode 8 of 10) and I just like how they wrote that. Without spoiling anything so much, the blow dealt by one major character to another one was so decisive without needing to resort to force. It was done by highlighting his strengths while also making his opponent’s weakness so clear that you can’t really question who won this one. It was good writing, good acting, and ultimately great directing. How was it done? There was a problem, someone qualified had the best solution for it.

You want to make Coffee vs You just want to drink Coffee

#shareyourkape #flairsignature #flairespressomaker

So here’s the deal: I now have my own Flair (a beautiful matte white Flair Signature from Etica Lifestyle); I want to use it every day; and I exert too much effort using it that I just want to drink good, no-fuss coffee the rest of the day. I wish I have an automatic coffee maker – oh wait, I have an OXO Brew Pour Over Coffee Maker with water tank so I’m good. Let’s discuss.

When Office Coffee is Politicized

I, for one, cannot wait for season 2 of the morning show. I know it’s a behind-the-scenes look at a major network’s morning show (which is so brazen to just call itself The Morning Show), but what I really liked about it was how it explored office politics. Also, it’s set in New York City (though sometimes shot in LA) and they have the Cory Ellison character, who is my favorite (more about that later).

Coffee before a meal. Coffee after a meal. (SEO, baby)

YouTube (this isn’t a piece about YouTube). I have shifted through several genres of YouTube videos throughout the pandemic but the most consistent have been commentary channels. One of these guys, Leon Lush, had a nice quote in one of his recent videos related to Qanon. He said “The internet is a fickle bitch… no matter what you want to believe is true, you will be able to find a version of that online to latch on to.” So, should you drink coffee before or after a meal? Let’s talk about a version for each.

Coffee is mostly associated as a breakfast thing, but it’s normal to drink it around lunch and dinner
