Somehow I knew this was going to be the plane bae story all over again. Interesting how they chose to end the story with an arranged marriage to show the drastic difference between cultures.

📺 “Kids Baking Championship” Desserts Doing Good | Food Network

Watched "Kids Baking Championship" Desserts Doing Good from Food Network
With Duff Goldman, Valerie Bertinelli, Paige Goehner, Meadow Roberts.

It drives me a bit crazy that these shows always pick their winners on a single episode performance rather than an overall season-long performance. I don’t think I can keep watching this show even as a guilty pleasure.

📺 “7 Days Out” Kentucky Derby | Netflix

Watched "7 Days Out" Kentucky Derby from Netfix
Directed by Robert Richman.

This episode is a little less interesting because it features a big event, but at a venue at which the same sort of event is done on a daily and even annual basis. Thus more of the emphasis of the piece is put onto the handful of characters that are participating in the event itself. It was also tough to get into a bit knowing in advance that there was a triple crown winner in 2018 and so the build of of tension just wasn’t there at all for me.

📺 “7 Days Out” Eleven Madison Park | Netflix

Watched "7 Days Out" Eleven Madison Park from Netflix
Directed by Michael John Warren. The Eleven Madison Square Park restaurant is the number one ranked restaurant in the world. Following audacious renovation plans the staff work to maintain the level of quality the world has come to expect.

An interesting documentary series, but I think I can tell from the titles of some of the episodes that some are going to be more interesting to me than others.

While this one paints perhaps an overly rosy picture, it’s interesting to see some of the work behind pushing a major restaurant into existence. I might have liked to have seen 7 weeks out to have a better view of what was going on here too.

An awkward, likely unrealistic plot, but it makes for a relatively interesting teachable set of moments. I wonder what the post-modern Twitter version would look like?

Watched Webstock '18: Taking Back The Web by Jeremy Keith from Vimeo

In these times of centralised services like Facebook, Twitter, and Medium, having your own website is downright disruptive. If you care about the longevity of your online presence, independent publishing is the way to go. But how can you get all the benefits of those third-party services while still owning your own data? By using the building blocks of the Indie Web, that’s how!
