"J Dillas beats have that drunk feel because he didn't read the manual of his sampler" .... curse me for reading the manual! 😭

the cool thing about being a full-stack developer in a non-full-stack job is explaining to the UX team what a mockup should be (hint: not pngs with jpeg artifacts)

The fun thing about depression is everyone telling you this cruel uncaring world run by sycophants in duty to banal evils floating in an endless cosmos of near-total nothingness is all in your head.

"If the fascist could be reasoned with, he wouldn’t exist in the first place. But, by word or endeavor, you will let him know that you see through his mask and you see his fear. His shivering, quaking, bowel-voiding fear. He shall be judged.

This Signal Kills Fascists. Repeat the Signal.”

"The state is his nook, his night-light, his favorite blanket, his favorite stuffed bear; an implement to stave off the horrors of the darkness, that long, long night where he would actually have to compete, actually have to participate in dialogue, actually have to compromise, actually be judged by his merits, actually have to find his own path in a complicated world. He lacks the mettle to do any of these things. The only strength he demonstrates is his white-knuckled grip on father’s pantleg.

"He emasculates artists, intimidates teachers, degrades women, and jails journalists: anyone and everyone who would dare hold a mirror to him. He is afraid of the world because he is not strong enough, mentally or emotionally, to survive it. That is why he never met a tyrant he didn’t like and will gleefully serve one: a strong father who will let him take whatever he wants from anyone he wants because in his toddler’s solipsism, everything is rightfully his.

“Fear not the fascist; he is the consummate coward. Beneath the mask and riot armor, that state-made veneer of power, is a wailing, heaving toddler, told by men far more cynical than he that his tantrum is an expression of mythology and a defense of his birthright.He is a weak-willed simpleton, lashing out at enemies that don’t exist, lamenting the loss of a cultural identity that never was, and proclaiming he is besieged despite the fact that he is the only aggressor. He is too dull to compete, too infirm to adapt, and too spoiled to share. He hides his cowardice with chauvinism and racism, twists his entitlement into heroic national narratives, and wages war on reality.

changing the clocks back and forth by an hour is bad for your sleep, which is bad for you. daylight savings time is fake and bad, thank you for coming to my ted talk

Imagine if instead of the web becoming the dominant internet protocol, IRC had emerged victorious, and now we'd have to write all of our frontend code in mIRCScript.

Looking at costuming tutorials and thinking about making my own clothes...

it is pretty weird that "make a living" just means "held hostage for labor"

#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.

Unsuspecting visitors to Medium's #articles now can't #read them unless they lock themselves into the platform.

The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.

#Plume exists to combat this, using the power of the #fediverse.

WOOT, I rocked HACKTOBERFEST and will get SWAG!
