9 to 5

I love this song because it is explicitly anti-capitalist and good god, both of their voices are perfect for it. Just a great performance.

Meat Up

By | February 16, 2019

I Can’t Eat Much Meat on the Planetary Health Diet—But I’m Feeling Better When I Do. Good for you. When I don’t eat meat, I feel like a trash bin being savaged by an angry moose. Everyone’s physiology is different I guess. All of this crap, this propaganda, is to make sure individuals make choices,… Read More »

Sham

By | February 16, 2019

This kind of left-progressive environmental horsecrap just grinds my gears. Equating natural with healthy, organic with anything that might be useful in this context, and just the general SYNTHETIC == BAD approach. What a load of garbage. Here, have some arsenic. Perfectly natural. Surely it won’t hurt a fly. When you realize how many myths,… Read More »

ED

Because Emma Dumont is in it, I watched the first episode of Bunheads. While not a great show (at least so far) it has some good lines. Unfortunately, Emma is not in Bunheads nearly enough and in some ways she’s discordant with the show. Like a lot of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s work, it is like a… Read More »

Cosmac Mistake

By | February 15, 2019

I refer to this sort of thing as the Cosma Shalizi approach to objecting to something. What you do is that you observe that you cannot point to an object in the physical world that has reified or exemplifies your chosen concept, and then proclaim it doesn’t exist and isn’t worth discussing. He used IQ,… Read More »

Seeing the Real Deal

By | February 15, 2019

All that seemingly stupid worthless sysadmin experience fixing one-off issues that seems like a complete waste of time, pays off a lot later, trust me I’m proof of that. — SwiftOnSecurity (@SwiftOnSecurity) February 13, 2019 It does pay off, and help desk experience, too. You see more strangeness and learn more about computers and systems… Read More »

Do Some Larnin’

By | February 15, 2019

FDR’s New Deal faced similar backlash as Green New Deal, historian says. Aye. It was seen as equally impossible, crazy, misguided, etc., as the Green New Deal but it was one of the best things to ever happen to America. All ya’ll motherfuckers need to read some damn history books. Shit.

Private Law

How did so many of you learn assembly in high school? What kind of computer Hogwarts did you attend? — bletchley punk (@alicegoldfuss) February 14, 2019 I was lucky to have a computer in the house, even though we were dirt poor and lived in a trailer with holes in the floor. Fortunately, my dad… Read More »

The Real Wall

Ask Slashdot: Could Android and iOS Become Popular Desktop Operating Systems? Fuck I hope not. They are locked-down walled gardens and mostly useless.

Snowattle

By | February 14, 2019

When people make fun of Seattle for not being able to deal with snow, they never seem to realize that Seattle is almost as hilly as San Francisco. Sure, it’s easy to drive in a flat city like Boston in the snow. Not so easy to go up a 18 degree slope with no winter… Read More »
