TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco
The Stream

A good Tuesday to everyone. Well, it's only the second day of the week and surely nothing newsworthy has happened yet, right? ๐Ÿ™ƒ

As much as I don't want to give you-know-who even more mindshare, the big Twitter news is impossible to ignore. However, it has given me a jump to explore other social platforms such as Mastodon. If you're over there, look me up.

I would appreciate it if you can take 5-minutes and participate in theย TimeMachiner Reader Survey. I'm looking to make TimeMachiner even better. I never include any tracking or spy analytics stuff in anything I do, which means your feedback is exceptionally valuable. It would mean a lot!

Onto today's random factoid: Tommy Fitzpatrick stole a small plane in 1956 from New Jersey on a bet and then landed it on the narrow street in front of the bar where he had been drinking in Manhattan. Two years later, he did it again after someone didn't believe he had done it the first time. Source

That's it for today. I'll see you on Thursday with a new issue of The Longform.

Grunge Is Old
Get ready Xennials and older folks because I’m about to say something that will make you shudder: Gen Z has deemed Grunge music as Oldies. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I know, right? But there is a big plus to this admission of age: rediscovery. When it comes to Nirvana, songs the band put…
