I spent the entire day working on this post, without actually writing it until the end of the day. I kept thinking about the concept of it: brainstorming on what it is, and what it could be. To sum it up, I’m satisfied with where it’s at, where it’s going, and the initial idea of creating this to begin with.
I hope you enjoy today’s news.
NBA will install 17-foot tall screens on game courts to serve as digital stands filled with 300 remote fans. NBA plays a leading role during coronavirus pandemic and racial reckoning. Here are the standings heading into the restart. New York Knick’s new head coach: Tom Thibodeaux. Fox Sports laid off between 50-100 employees. Players pick social justice jersey messaging.
I can’t stop thinking about America. J. Cole released two new songs (The Climb Back and Lion King on Ice). Logic retired from rapping—to be a ‘great father’, released a new album right after the announcement, and before that, signed an exclusive seven-figure deal with Twitch. Just downloaded a new app called Soor, which has magic mixes and and many other features worth trying. Taylor Swift also surprised us with a new album that ‘reset her image’. I like the song with Bon Iver.
Regis Philbin dies at 88. Letterman called Regis a ‘master communicator’. Could Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League be a series instead of a movie? Apple looking to acquire more blockbuster movies after success of ‘Greyhound’. The Streaming Wars are here. Hopefully this makes it easier.
Ghost of Tsushima is a fitting farewell for the PlayStation 4. All the games confirmed for the PlayStation 5. All the games confirmed for the Xbox Series X. Game Pass is Microsoft’s true next-gen Xbox. Remedy has a new game coming out—a military shooter—called CrossfireX.
Donald Trump’s suburban horror show. Republican Party could suffer its worst defeat in the suburbs in decades. Make America normal again: a plea for a virus plan. When the job got hard, he got bored. Corporate America was here for you on coronavirus until about June. U.S. tops 1,000 coronavirus deaths 4 days in a row as experts urge the country to shut down. (Following politics just for this section is depressing.)
It’s Saturday, which means something different to this project. It left me questioning the schedule of these post. Should I post on the weekends too? Should I post the news of yesterday, even though the date is today (like I did the last two days)? Or should I work on this during the day and make it about that day (not the day before)? Should I work on these Monday through Friday, and take the weekends off? These are the things I was thinking of today, not just for today, but the project as a whole: what should the schedule be? I’m thinking only weekdays going forward. We’ll see.
