Until recently, I was attached to my personal number, and my routine of getting the new iPhone each year. It took me awhile to figure out that I could do this, but after testing it for a month now, I’m happy to let go of my personal phone and phone number.</p> <p>I’ll now be using my work phone, which is an iPhone 7 (that was previously always dead at home. I never used it because I didn’t want to carry around two phones). And I’ll be selling or trading in my iPhone 7 Plus, which will save me a lot of money on my phone bill.</p> <h2 id="ipad">iPad</h2> <p><img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1490393495734/e5e-44ec-4539-894d-8f850fa2053c.JPG" width="1867" height="1400"></p> <p>For over a year now, I’ve owned the iPad Pro. The big one (12.9″). I loved everything about it, but only when I was sitting or laying down. That iPad is way too big for usage on the go. So I traded my friend, who had the smaller version of the Pro. I told her to give me a few days to see if I would miss the bigger size, but other than the space on the screen being tighter and crammed (which I’ve gotten used to now), there’s nothing pulling me back to the bigger size. I’m happier now with the smaller version.</p> <h2 id="summary">Summary</h2> <p>I’m happy to have a more compact setup, letting go of size, for devices that fit better in my hands and in my life. I barely use my phone for a phone, so my personal number isn’t that important to me. And I’ve learned that the bigger sizes don’t always mean better. They were inconvenient in almost every way, so this has been a nice way for me to optimize my usage.</p> The iPad Lineup http://nashp.com/the-ipad-lineup http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/the ipad lineup.md Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:43:45 -0500 <p><img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1490391824991/ql9vo0-img_0022.JPG" width="1486" height="555"></p> <p>Apple adjusted their iPad lineup this week. They discontinued the Air 2 and the Mini 2, and replaced them with a new, lower priced version ($329), which is now called <a href="http://www.apple.com/ipad-9.7/">iPad</a>. They still have the mini 4, but I don’t see that sticking around, unless they release an updated version, without a number.</p> <ul> <li>iPad</li> <li>iPad Pro</li> </ul> <p>I believe these are the only two that Apple wants to have. The Pro is for power users, and the iPad is for everyone else, at a price that’s as cheap as it’s ever been.</p> Death Note (Netflix Teaser) http://nashp.com/death-note-netflix-teaser http://nashp.com//posts/media/[netflix]/death note (netflix teaser).md Wed, 22 Mar 2017 10:43:37 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zS9UW2xjdqE?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>August 25th.</p> Minimalism and the Important Stuff http://nashp.com/minimalism-and-the-important-stuff http://nashp.com//posts/lifestyle/[minimalism]/minimalism and the important stuff.md Wed, 22 Mar 2017 07:02:05 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fDF2qr7MM48?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. — William Morris http://nashp.com/have-nothing-in-your-house-that-you-do-not-know-to-be-useful-or-believe-to-be-beautiful-—-william http://nashp.com//posts/writing and reading/[quotes]/have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. —.md Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:11:05 -0500 Dave Chappelle on escaping fame, returning to stand-up with Netflix http://nashp.com/dave-chappelle-on-escaping-fame-returning-to-stand-up-with-netflix http://nashp.com//posts/media/[tv shows]/dave chappelle on escaping fame, returning to stand-up with netflix.md Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:09:07 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RKeO-f3yg6Q?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <blockquote> <p>I found an altitude that I was comfortable with.</p> </blockquote> <p><span class="small-caps">CBS</span> This Morning interviewed Dave Chappelle yesterday, the same day his two new stand-up specials were released on Netflix.

I’ve spent the last two hours on the iPad, in OmniFocus (my task manager) and Ulysses (my writing app). These two apps are split in half and sharing the screen. As I plan my tasks, and as I write this post, I’m also enjoying Watchmen (one of my favorite movies), which is layered on top of the iPad, covering a corner of the screen. Behind me, is my clothes that I just got out of the dryer, and to my left, hanging under the door frame, is my pull-up bar. To the left of the door, on a little table, is my kettle and Frenchpress, where coffee will be ready in 10 minutes.</p> <p>It’s these handful of things that I’m currently cycling through: check off tasks that are complete, listen to the movie, fold shirts, write a few words, glimpse at a scene in the movie, do a few pull-ups, add ideas to the task manager, fold some shorts—rinse and repeat.</p> <p>I have two hours before I have to be at work. My plan is to work on a few pages in my Life book, finish this coffee, publish this blog post, and then finish planning out the rest of my week.</p> <p>Each day, I want three big tasks, no more, no less. I’ve learned that simply focusing on three task each day is the perfect amount to be productive, without getting overwhelmed, or even worse, not even doing all of the tasks you’ve planned out.</p> <h2 id="schedule-and-tasks">Schedule and Tasks</h2> <ul> <li><p>Today - Work: 9-1, finish Week 7 of Life book, write blog post, vacuum car.</p></li> <li><p>Tomorrow - Work: Off, focus on Bolivia mission trip, work on Week 8 of Life book, spend time at Mom’s, 7pm meeting with friends.</p></li> <li><p>Saturday - Work: Off, Men’s Breakfast: 7:30am, Church: 6:30pm.</p></li> <li><p>Sunday - Church: 9am, Work: 11-3:30, Picnic at park: 4pm.</p></li> </ul> American Gods (Official Trailer) http://nashp.com/american-gods-official-trailer http://nashp.com//posts/media/[trailers]/american gods (official trailer).md Wed, 15 Mar 2017 18:33:12 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3awG5wEE7LU?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>April 30th.</p> Isaiah Thomas is 5′9 and embarrasses taller players.

These three songs capture an eerie, abstract, and inspiring sound that’s like no other. There’s precision, mixed with complicated thoughts. There’s big stories, mixed with the smallest details about a specific moment Frank is thinking of. Each song has big concepts that could stand alone, with just the main hook and verses, but midway or towards the end of each track, they switch up into something entirely different. And on top of all of this, on all of the songs, there’s additional vocals from him, layered and sprinkled everywhere, adding pieces to this abstract puzzle.</p> <p>I say all of this to say this: I appreciate the <em>complete level of control</em> that Ocean displays throughout the album. It’s <em>still</em> getting better with every listen.</p> Breaking Bad: The Movie http://nashp.com/breaking-bad-the-movie http://nashp.com//posts/media/[tv shows]/breaking bad- the movie.md Mon, 13 Mar 2017 12:36:33 -0500 <p>Update: video was removed.</p> <p><a href="http://kottke.org/17/03/a-fan-made-recut-of-breaking-bad-into-a-2-hour-movie">Jason Kottke</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>The events and highly intricate plot lines of Breaking Bad take place over 62 episodes spanning 5 seasons, a true megamovie.

This Englishman with an obsessive love for mythology went on a massive writing-based road trip criss-crossing the country from coast to coast telling chronicling the story of gods the many immigrants before him had brought to American shores. Though showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green could never have known it when they initially signed on to adapt the book for <span class="small-caps">TV</span> back in 2014, this immigrant tale has become one of the most surprisingly politically relevant shows of the Trump era. The show doesn’t premiere on Starz until April 30, but the first episode debuted Saturday at <span class="small-caps">SXSW</span> in Austin.

I’m wondering where secrets lay hidden in temples and towers, in the bottoms of lakes, and what beasts await around the crumbled ruins in the distance. I’ve always been skeptical about whether or not<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>killer apps” are a thing or if any single piece of software was worth buying a console for. However, Breath of the Wild has demolished that notion in less than an hour. The rest of the console’s lineup can be a series of duds for all I care. There is something special about this Zelda. It has a soul. It trembles with wonder and delight, and I’m counting the hours until I can get back to saving the world.</p> </blockquote> I have to get lost so I can invent some way out. — David Salle http://nashp.com/i-have-to-get-lost-so-i-can-invent-some-way-out-—-david-salle http://nashp.com//posts/writing and reading/[quotes]/i have to get lost so i can invent some way out. — david salle.md Fri, 10 Mar 2017 12:47:10 -0600 NASHP - Gaining Speed http://nashp.com/nashp-gaining-speed http://nashp.com//posts/me/[studio]/nashp - gaining speed.md Thu, 09 Mar 2017 13:04:34 -0600 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/lLUWM9jbA1U?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. — Lao Tzu http://nashp.com/when-you-realize-there-is-nothing-lacking-the-whole-world-belongs-to-you-thinspmdashthinsplao-tzu http://nashp.com//posts/writing and reading/[quotes]/when you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. – lao tzu.md Wed, 08 Mar 2017 18:38:20 -0600 This tiny home was 3D-printed in 24 hours (and it cost just over $10,000) http://nashp.com/this-tiny-home-was-3d-printed-in-24-hours-and-it-cost-just-over-10000 http://nashp.com//posts/lifestyle/tony home 3d.md Tue, 07 Mar 2017 09:28:02 -0600 <p><img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1488900481531/house_stupino_designboom_07__1_.jpg" width="800" height="552"> <img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1488900481513/ted_house_stupino_designboom_01.jpg" width="800" height="321"></p> <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xktwDfasPGQ?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p><a href="http://www.curbed.com/2017/2/28/14766474/tiny-houses-designs-3d-printed">Jenny Xie</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Completed in the town of Stupino, located 60 miles south of Moscow, this 400-square-foot home was made with 3D-printing company Apis Cor’s mobile <span class="small-caps">3D</span> printer, a crane-like, first-of-its-kind apparatus that’s small enough to be portable.
