Me listening to music

Me listening to music

A pretty good selection this week, all told. I’ll add a bunch to the mauxbs.com Spotify playlist.

I’m working on a JotForm today and there are so many crazy widgets available that don’t pertain to my work. I want to check them out though. Don’t be surprised if a JotForm shows up in here in the next few days. Kelly Moran: Ultraviolet This is… not any genre of popular music. It’s more […]
