At the end of the day, we’re all just the weirdest apes that have ever existed

I've heard so much about how terrible it is that brands whisked away their pride month logos, this is a great example of what they should be doing instead. :)

GTD and every other “productivity methodology” in order to sell you on the idea that organizing your todo list will somehow make you more effective, has to make it seem plausible that the reason you procrastinate and don’t get more done is that you are confused as to what you should be doing.

But I don’t think that’s it at all. I’m sure most of the time, if you asked me what’s the most important thing I should be working on right now, I could tell you. At all times, I could easily at least come up with *an* important thing I *could* be doing, even if there’s some doubt as to it being the single most important one. At any rate, the point is that I’m not confused. I just don’t want to do it.

one thing is certain: kanye's divorce album (if he releases it) will be good

I think Country and Pop Hit Songwriter Shel Silverstein is my favorite Shel Silverstein

the kube context workflow really sucks.

Svelte looks like a pretty sexy shade of lipstick, considering the pig that is JavaScript.

The reason I know loads about Morton Subotnik and next to nothing about Susanne Ciani is systemic sexism.

There's a thing that happens with women composers where they can be super famous, but they're very quickly forgotten after that moment passes. (Indeed, it's not just composers. It's why so many women get to be first at doing the exact same thing.)

We should have some sort of fediverse listening club to fill in the gaps of the women who were intentionally forgotten.

I'm thinking Ciani, Oliveros, Derbyshire, Oram, Pril Smiley and Frankie Manning are all people who we could look at it, but I really want to know who is missing from this list, which is all white. Who are the women of colour of early electronic music?

“As great as the infinite space beyond is the space within the lotus of the heart. Both heaven and earth are contained in that inner space, both fire and air, sun and moon, lightning and stars.”

Every once in a while, all the actual spoons are in the dishwasher and I end up eating ice cream with a fork. To be honest, the first time I tried it, I somehow wasn’t sure it would work. As it happens, of course, it turns out to work so well that it makes me wonder why we don’t just always eat ice cream with a fork? There’s less metal between your tongue and delicious ice cream!

Mildly interesting: these days I do my database administratin’ day job and my hobbyist music production in the same spot, – literally sitting at the same desk. I just switch which laptop I’m using.

EFF has long argued that courts too often misinterpret the CFAA’s notoriously ambiguous “exceeding authorized access” prohibition to shut down vital activities. The Supreme Court agrees, and has issued a much needed correction.
