My copy of Kindle Previewer 3 silently fails to notice and display publisher fonts, a friend with the same OS etc sees them fine. I am spinning up a VM now to try yo figure out if its some extra undocumented thing I haven't done or some extra cursed thing I have done.

Nursery song I'm trying to learn today: Haunted House.
Rad busted old folk recording and lyrics: maxhunter.missouristate.edu/so

i love that every thread online asking for help making embedded fonts work with kindle previewer gets immediately derailed with "why are you doing that?"

thanks for scaring away everyone with a question about this before anyone could accidentally help. you brave typographic warriors, we salute you.

highly recommend "A Frog he would A-wooing go" as a nursery rhymes. Take whatever verses you feel like memorizing from wordsforlife.org.uk/activities , for an example of a way to sing it check out youtu.be/crKVBlfAGlU . There are of 1800s phrases to keep your tired brain awake, and its super long and meandering so the kid gets less bored. The frog remembering to take his opera hat with him when he flees the violence is my favorite bit.

in one video a sea otter at the oregon zoo learns to play basketball for physical therapy

I had to pivot off apressurecooker.com/korean-gro halfway through because it wanted some weird instant pot bowl, but the same ingredients cooked on the stove are really nice.

I was looking around for a bowl that's the right size to use instead in the instant pot, but luckily my wife pointed out that I might be building a ceramic shrapnel bomb!
