This dropped earlier today while I was working and doing other things.
But I guess I know what I'm listening to tomorrow!
So I kinda wanted to, you know, build a modern take on an old school style BBS. Something more accessible, easier to manage for users and sysop, and using more modern tech.
To begin with, I needed a name, and a UI. The name is Innisfree BBS. The UI is inspired by WWIV.
If, like me, you grew up in the late 70s and early 80s and watched Sesame Street, you'd be familiar with Billy Jo Jive. If you're also like me, you really dug that funky-as-hell theme song.
It's called Afrocat, by Richard Sanders. You're welcome.
In other news, a local aquarium that features dolphins will close so a panel of experts might assess whether or not it's a bad idea to put dolphins...
In tank of water...
In the middle of the fucking desert.
It only took the deaths of four dolphins to trigger this decision.
We have a local commercial for a moving service, and they portray other moving services as assessing lots of fees.
When the customer asks if there's any wiggle room on the fees, a man in a fur suit thrusts his hips back and forth in an obvious "doggy style" motion while saying "Wiggle wiggle wiggle whoomp!"
In short, I've seen hell... and it's locally produced television advertisements.
Every kid in a music appreciation class in middle school should be taught about disco demolition night and how the “death of disco” had high key racial, ethnic and homophobic sentiment fueling it
I'm curious, does anyone else essentially keep a personal blacklist of journals? What causes them to land there?
Well, my podcasting friends, things just got a little more interesting.
Spotify is buying Gimlet, home of shows like Reply All and The Nod.
Oh, it also bought Anchor, a podcast creation and hosting system. Maybe there was a two for one special?
So I just kicked off something I've not done in years. I mean, at least five to ten years, I'd say.
I'm burning an audio CD.
Hell, I had to go find a programme that would actually *do* that.
If you think ISBNs are unique -- you sweet summer child. 🙃 😭 😓 😔
... this is like one of those things where I suddenly look 40 years older
So, I got a thing in the mail today...
One weird thing about watching YouTube videos of drummers is that many of them have a cam on their kick drum... like they need to prove they're using it or that those beats you're hearing are actual
When you're busting out a killer cover of YYZ on your kit, I'm prepared to believe that you're using the kick too.
Reading the New York Times can be... an adventure of sorts
