So uh hello everyone, meet my (literal) big brother @pdcull .

He's been working with at-risk teenagers in the favelas of Brazil for the last 20 years; is a certified CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) trainer and Emergency Manager; is studying for a Masters in Emergency Management with a special focus on empowering communities to develop resilience.

He has seen a bit of crap in his time (corrupt cops, drug dealers etc) so he can *probably* cope with you all.

Probably.

Be nice.

This pisses me off because I love Blade Runner, it's one of my favorites.

But it's dark, and I cant bring myself to put my head in that space, or a worse one, again.

Blade Runner 2049 is in my birdsite timeline, I guess because it's hitting streaming services. Already on shelf in the old-fashioned bricks and mortar silver disc rental boutique that's attached to an art cinema.

I haven't yet seen it and don't want to. It may be great, for all I know.

But somehow the advertising centered around dehumanizing shots of scantily clad female AI characters and

that does not really say 'a great date movie for me and my wife'

Guess I've aged out of The Demographic.

Poems are made by fools like me
But only Weyland-Yutani Ecosystem Services can make a tree

A Fun Game: imagine the next lines of this actual, real, famous poem

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Go!

(bonus score for including any of the following words: squamous, tentacle, gibbersome, mycelia, necrophage, cavernous, delirium, aeon, non-Aristotelian)

No cheating and reading the original first.

This week, more or less, is the 40th anniversary of my first UNIX mail account, on UNIX C at UC Berkeley.

oh i am thinking about spaces in filenames, and feel the ash of special cases and complexity falling over my bright clean code

Dude implies he has a proof of the Reimann hypothesis and schedules a colloquium to describe his proof. Books the room for 45 minutes. That’s confidence.

Your head is humming and it won't go
So get your game on
The piper's calling you to go play
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
Go get the show on
We could all use a little change

There's a lady who's told all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mould
And she looks kind of dumb with her fingers and thumb
In the shape of a word with two meanings

And it makes me wonder, oo-oooh

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
It's a cool place, they say it gets colder
But the meteor men see rings of smoke through the trees
And a hole in the satellite picture

And it makes me wonder, oh-oh
Why you're an all-star, oh-oh
