“It would be funny and sad, this sputtering anger at an ever-changing world, if so many people weren't taking the rage-bait, and if it weren't coming at the expense of actually improving peoples' lives.” t.co/rkr0O9vKQ2

After four years of gnashing teeth against every single debate related to the president, it seems our public intellectuals are now trying to find some fresh meat so are literally grabbing on to every single controversial thing they can find.

Can a man really claim to have been around the world if the only evidence he offers is “London to the Bay”?

I don’t mean to put M.C. Hammer on the spot like this, but I just need to know

Anyone else try this yet? If this is suitably obscure enough I may write about it. t.co/i37wsP1Mx4

It’s weird thinking back to this time a year ago. I remember I made a trip to NYC (which I don’t visit often), and remember being on the subway and thinking about COVID, and how scary the subway would be if COVID made it here.

Little did I know.

Ugh. “We believe that USB-C is detrimental to the MFi business's profitability, and its waterproof specification is lower than Lightning and MagSafe.”

This is some of the most brilliant marketing I've seen in quite some time

Sorry if this is a bit random, but the fact that Microsoft easily won the operating system market for PCs despite having little support from Apple fans is something that ought to have been a pretty big wake-up call but doesn’t seem to have been.

Giving Qobuz a try; it’s a little cheaper than Tidal but has many of the same benefits of Tidal (high-quality music). I also prefer the relative lack of algorithms.

Only downside: Check out how bright this interface is. t.co/ZPgxo8NLaC

Slowly but surely improving this Linux setup. Got Strawberry installed, which allows me to run Master-quality Tidal recordings on the desktop. (Previously had to use Plex, without Master quality.)

Wow, Fela Kuti is at the top of the fan vote for the Rock Hall. Super deserving. t.co/6QbVdzm1uo

The conservative movement continues rewarding people who deserve scorn, I see.

Using my Pop_OS! install right now and something really weird happened with my monitor—for some reason the screen got super washed-out, to the point that it removed faint grays (of which Tedium uses many). I used Xrandr to help, but not sure how it happened in the first place.

Watching an American classic: Maximum Overdrive. Stephen King's best work.

Turns out getting verified on Facebook is significantly easier than getting verified on Twitter. t.co/Pd3yRvp5K2

Ignoring The Warnings: Two decades later, a parable about safety in sports—one that led to the death of a NASCAR legend—feels more relevant than ever.

So this is where my relationship with my Xeon lies: I turn it off whenever I have any recording responsibilities and when I turn it back on, it pushes a surge through my USB hub that prevents it from working for like 20 minutes, and I have to unplug it to get it working again.
