Didn't care much for Freak Show either. Still, better than most stuff out there, especially for a media geek.

Funnily enough, we loved season one of Kim's Convenience but since they ran out of source material and started their own writing it's gone downhill. We still put it on on weekends though.

On the other hand, Iíve found numerous 9/16 sockets and wrenches on the road. Being From farm country, I have to a assume that a lot of old farm equipment uses 9/16 fasteners.

I liked Freak Show and Hotel. Coven was pretty good, too.

So for the tubeless folks (hi WhyFi), what should I do to get the tubeless beads locked? I tried a 20g CO2 and it didn't push in hard enough. Anything short of buying an air compressor?

Either get an air blast canister to go with your track pump or get a new pump with canister built in. The Bontrager TLR pump gets really good reviews and is probably the one I'd buy. Not sure if they released a BYOPump version.

You could also see if any auto service places nearby have a kick-ass compressor that's available for public use. Many really suck, but there's one place by me that never fails. Bring a Schrader adapter and your spray bottle of slightly soapy water.

Super busy Friday. I need a nap.

I currently have 3 10 mm non-ratcheting wrenches, and I know the whereabouts of all of them. And, shockingly, at the time of this writing, I am missing no allen wrenches.

I saw an ad for a Schwalbe airless tire. Who here will be the first to try it?

In other news, furniture shopping blows and apparently there's not a new couch in existence that really feels comfortable to me.

You people have weird proportions.

No couches in the rjones28 manse.

I let her know that if there was a black female in there, we probably would be interested. We were informed that "Blondie" had not had a black female in her line, that she knew of, but there were some there in past generations. Expectations were low, but alas... A black male and female out of the five. Crazy. Meant to be. Don't know. Every one we get is unique, and no single one replaces any other single one, they just get added to the space, and add to the joy they've all brought. I will say, losing my shadow was very hard, and you all get it. She was just always around, wherever I went, yet never on me. That part is tough.

Either way. End of June it is.

A man of principle.

I interpreted him to say he did the whole thing without peeing. Kudos. #ProperHydration

P.S. I thought SoCal has lots of traffic? There's virtually none in the video.
