A project to allow multiple choice votes for the KmikeyM shareholder community. Often focused on quick votes to control the smaller aspects of Mike Merrill's life.
It's a six-part series, so I could just wait five weeks and then catch up on all of them at once. OTOH, then I wouldn't get to talk to other people about it and i'd be yelling 'no spoilers' all the time. I don't know... what do you think?
I committed to helping Norberto with a video today, but my friend Mathew is leaving LA forever and having people meet up at a brewery. Should I maintain my commitment with Norberto or should I go say goodbye to my friend Mathew? Or, is there another option?
A classic Goldilocks situation here. The checkered blazer is slightly too big and the velvet blazer is slightly too small.
The checkered blazer is from Brooks Brothers and I fell in love with it years ago, but couldn't justify the cost for something that is, let's be honest, pretty garish. Apparently I wasn't the only one that thought so and was able to pick it up on clearance sale. It was only made in a very boxy style so I then brought it in to get tailored and it's still a bit on the big side. I have worn this only once since moving to Los Angeles, when I MC'd the holiday party at my former employer and created a holiday quiz show. It's the perfect jacket for a quiz show host, but otherwise I'm not sure I need to hang on to it. And as I mentioned, it's a little too big for me.
The blue velvet blazer I love, even though I typically only wear it to year end holiday parties. But it's a bit snug and I can't quite button the bottom button and be comfortable. So while I like it, I don't really wear it anymore. So why am I keeping it? I don't currently have a decent "evening" jacket alternative. But is that a reason to keep it?
This is a part of a series of votes to clean out my wardrobe. Using the "does it spark joy" method I'll write up some notes on my feelings and then let the shareholders decide if I should keep them or get rid of them.
First up is two pair of pants I rarely wear:
The Nantucket Reds are "casual pants" from Brooks Brothers. They were purchased for me by an ex-girlfriend's mother and I have not worn them in months. They look good with my Sperry's boat shoes but they feel a bit loud and they are tight in the waist. Do they spark joy? No, I don't really care about these pants.
The Chess Pants are in the classic trad style of "go to hell" pants and are also from Brooks Brothers. I love these pants. I bought them when we first started Chroma and I think of them as my "game designer" pants. But I haven't worn them in over two years. They are the pants version of an old favorite t-shirt. I would not miss them if they disappeared, but I can't bring myself to get rid of them. Do they spark joy? No, but they spark sadness when I think about getting ride of them.
I’m at Smoke House, a Hollywood institution, with Aaron. I just had an old fashioned and I need another drink. What should I get?
This is part 2 of a vote about my official position. See part 1 on KmikeyM.com.
Please vote for one of the following options:
[Pioneering] KmikeyM is a crypto advocate and believes that the tokenization of physical and digital assets will be the gateway to unlocking new microcosms of value for citizens everywhere. KmikeyM looks forward to exploring options for a working crypto solution to his own market.
[Positive] KmikeyM is a crypto enthusiast and believes cryptocurrency is an exciting new wave of financial innovation. He holds a number of positions in various projects and expects crypto investing will outperform the regular markets.
[Hopeful] KmikeyM is optimistic about crypto and enjoys collecting and holding tokens as a way to participate. He encourages people to get involved and believes the crypto “killer app” is just around the corner.
[Lucrative] KmikeyM feels like investing in cryptocurrency can be a lucrative opportunity, but does not believe crypto is a long lasting mainstream happening. KmikeyM will invest to make profit, but holds no ideological belief about the technology.
[Interested] KmikeyM is fascinated by the promise of crypto but has a wait and see approach regarding the implementation because involvement requires a high technical understanding and few safeguards. He would not advise anyone to invest more than a token amount.
[Curious] KmikeyM believes that crypto is an interesting idea, but is skeptical of mainstream adoption and wouldn’t advise participation beyond entertainment purposes.
[Negative] KmikeyM sees crypto enthusiasm as another in a long line of technical utopian dreams of Ayn Randian thinkers who will no doubt end up very rich causing great harm to society.
Did a nice hike and took a dip in the ocean. I heard about a good fish taco, but there are rumors of “the best lobster roll”...
I’m meeting my friend at Destroyer, Jordan Kahn's minimalist, daytime-only spot for inventive Scandinavian-style breakfast & lunch fare (I don’t know who Jordan is, but I think he’s a fancy restaurant person). Knowing that breakfast is the most Important meal of the day, help me pick what to get.
After the dialup call I want to go see a movie. But what movie do I want to go see?
or, don't go to a movie you dummy!
Well, technically second beverage because I had some sparkling water, or as the label says "Aqua Medium." But it's 5pm and we're about to head to the hotel.
What should my first drink be?
I love lunch! Where should I go?
I need to pick up some coffee at the place near my work GGET. This is a rapid vote that will run for just 30 min. Check the link to see the options, then help me figure out which kind to get!
Tomorrow is Sunday, known to many as a day of rest. My plans for tomorrow are to go to the gym and then drive with my girlfriend to Palm Springs to spend a few days and welcome 2019. Typically I wake up at 6:30am, but I have some prep to do before we head out and I definitely want to have enough time for the gym. So can I sleep in, or should I get up at my regular time?
