Pinned toot

"It was not an act of treason, nor possibly even of defiance. But it was a calculated withdrawal, from the life of the Republic, from its machinery.

Re-tooting my 2018 Halloween playlist, 8+ hours of eclectic, more or less seasonally appropriate music:

Happy birthdays to Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics, et al.) and John Allison (Scary-go-round, et al.), two comics collossi.

That total includes 24,062 unique songs by 3,845 artists across 5,454 albums.

In the spirit of the season, here's a spooky : "Cannibals Gone Wild" by old-school Louisville punks, Skull of Glee.

I missed the news that 8tracks had been raised from the dead back in April. All my old playlists are still available at

Happy Bloomsday! I think I'll cosplay Molly this year and spend the whole day in bed.

Today's reading: resumed my slog through Baudrillard's Simulations.
