I’ve added a “make a playlist” habit on Lift. Mixtapes always bring me joy, so I think making a habit out of this will help me with my happiness issues. This one is mostly modern indie with a classic twist (you know, those bands that either deliberately or accidentally sound like they’re from the 70s). And The Clash, who actually were from the 70s. There’s also a bit of a reggae theme.
This is pretty cool. Instead of having a plain old feed import tool, Feedly is abstracting the Google Reader API so that they can keep the rest of the code for their apps intact. From a software architecture perspective, this is brilliant.

I went to Sports Ltd. on my lunch break and tried these on. At first I was pretty stoked, until I noticed my lateral metatarsal bones sticking out the side of the shoe, hanging over the edge of the outsole. They just don’t fit. The Trail Gloves don’t have this problem because they have sturdier material on that edge.
