Not sure how I talked Philadelphia's Morris Animal Rescue into letting me name some of their kittens with a neural net. They did reject some names.

The other night, this time at a venue that seats 3000, ten men walked onstage, and my first thought was, huh, what did they do with the women? And then they expertly played this sort of soporific white boy fusion jazz. I was actually falling asleep. The audience loved it but it wasn’t our thing, so we left after about four songs.
So we were so confused by the difference in the band that I looked them up to see if we were remembering them wrong and conflating them with someone else. We saw this amazing band at SFJAZZ some years back, in a room with about 100 people. They had a few women on stage, most notably this charismatic, super dynamic singer. She was a powerhouse. Everyone was dancing and it was a great night.

I forgot another cool thing. A couple months ago a former colleague invited me to help design the cover for an anthology of short stories to raise funds for victims of the Camp Fire. Super fun volunteer project for a good cause! I’ve met many of the authors, absolutely lovely people.
Since the stories are of the horror genre, I’m posting the book link with a CW; most of what we be read so far is just campy spooky fun.
my grandma always had this huge painting that was painted for the Federal Art Project. and there was something about that program -- the government hiring a bunch of artists just to keep them from being unemployed -- that struck me as being morally right in a way that I had never felt really about politics before
