Nearly Coherent: Critical Mass

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent.

eD! and Jeff remind you that #BlackLivesMatter, and if you think otherwise, you’re probably a dick.

It only took us two tries to get this right, and there’s a lot that might age poorly, but we’re doing our best here.

Dave Chappelle’s new special, “8:46”, is excellent. You should watch it, which works out ‘cause it’s right up there.

Black Lives Matter.

If you’re as frustrated at everything that’s going on and looking for a way to help, there’s an excellent list of resources here.

Also, for the record, if you’re thinking of contacting me to argue about this, or just be a shitface in general, you can figure out where the unfollow button is on your own.


Actor’s Fund: You Can’t Stop the Beat

Come for the 4:45 seconds of awesomeness that will get your mind off some of the nightmare that is everyday life, stay for Martin Short wearing a “Straight Outta Quarantine” shirt.


Apple Announces iPad Pro Updates

Apple announced a new version of the iPad Pro today, and, folks, spare a thought for my bank account, ’cause I wants it.

In the way of actual updates, it’s more or less what we’d all expect — a faster A12Z Bionic processor, WiFi 6 networking, which (with the right router) can allow download speeds of 1.2 Gbps (up from 866Mbps), and support for 30 different LTE cellular networking bands, up from 29.

That one band will make all the difference, I’m sure!1Full disclosure: I am not sure.

Apple also announced mouse and trackpad support will come with iPadOS 13.4, which will be released on March 24th — that’s the one thing Jeff has been asking me about for months, so he’ll be extremely happy with that.

Finally, Apple announced a new Magic Keyboard, which won’t be out until May, which sucks ’cause I want it now, dammit!

Would’ja look at that thing?!

It has a trackpad, backlit keys (that use the scissor switches that Apple has mercifully gone back to on the 16″ MacBook Pro and new MacBook Air, also announced today), a USB-C port with passthrough power for your iPad, and viewing angles that I cannot wait to try, just take my money Tim Apple.

There’s a bunch more details about the new iPad Pro on MacStories. Give it a read, but hide your Apple Card while you do.

Katie Porter’s Whiteboard

When you woke up this morning and put on your bland suit in preparation for your hearing, I bet you looked yourself in the mirror and thought: Today’s the day. Katie Porter’s not going to get me.

Well, I’m Representative Katie Porter’s whiteboard, and I’ve got a message scrawled upon my glistening façade: We’re about to kick your ass.

The exchange between Rep. Katie Porter of California and an official from the CDC during a hearing yesterday was awesome. This monologue from McSweeney’s Internet Tendency is an equally-awesome companion piece.

If you haven’t seen Rep. Porter mopping the floor with the officials from the CDC yet, you should 100% watch the video below before you read the piece on McSweeney’s. It’s worth your time, I promise.

Nearly Coherent: The Juwanna Mann Standard

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent!

eD! and Jeff discuss Jeff’s luxurious beard, Standing Up, Falling Down, and a new smartphone case eD! can’t stop thinking about.

Yes, the writer of the movie is my cousin, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an excellent movie, and doesn’t deserve the love we heap upon it.

Nearly Coherent: Jeff 2024

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent!

eD! and Jeff discuss Valentine adventures, the price of trumpets, terrible Twitter takes, and things that could tank Jeff’s theoretical political campaign!

This episode also features the third-dumbest question ever asked on the podcast, which I more or less absolutely loved. You really should give it a listen.
