A transcript for Episode 141: "Is Cereal A Sandwich" (2018-06-04.)
It's ... somewhat concussed. Compare Podcast 141 Transcript, Otter.
Come and do a last option so I facilitate... it's such a lazy Sunday. Oh, do you tell me about it?
We do, I call these slow loris? Days. Will you just kind of walk around like a slightly dim mammal? Just being like a... I-I-I drove seven hours home from the finger like yesterday and it was a great drive and I had a really good trip and everything was fine. But regardless of how fine it is the next day is always a bit of a hangover the whether it's beautiful today, just freaking great.
So all those things I just wanna sit around and smell the flowers, and do nothing. Ferdinand it's the way to be, I think.
So, just bullet up.
I think Sasebo.
It's been a long time, as I've read for name, I know for name Utica. The last time I actually consumed any portion of the finite... but can't I? It was a picture book, right?
Yeah, and the thing I know about it special, is that Elliott had a... Catherine, on the shoulder, and so it's always... that's the resident frequency of it for me because he was also kind of a kind, gentle quiet guy, as you know, he went to Hampshire. I, some lot but I know a little... apparently, there was a CGI family came out like six months ago too, that I was completely unaware of about the financial starting.
John Cena for a king.
Oh really, you know, I like Janina also, so I guess that's okay, for nine in the story of Ferdinand. I am reading Wikipedia and it's from 1936.
How great is that? You know, it's an antique book I guess I should say. This is Episode 141 of the meticulous... that's what we're doing, we're doing a podcast.
Yeah I am, I'm cortex Kosh apparel.
I been like soft spoken of Dharma.
I don't know, mixing it up.
And I'm just, man, also known as nothing just testament.
You should come up with a fake real name. That just means like You're weird internet handle that you also known as Linda, and also known as the Shaw. We can work on this for next time, maybe we'll just both have new real names.
Next, next episode, how you lock in a new song last month.
We not say, to tell me, "Oh I need to know these things ahead of time.
So I'm not like the what now a new song.
I mean it didn't exist until after we recorded so it's not like a Coelho me about it.
Well, I disclosed the fact that there was a new song in the tweet which is usually our post-podcast recording "canonesses or years in mind.
It's not what I learn things, that's where I just repeat things out to the world.
Well, I've been thinking about that actual because I think that's a really good dynamic we have here. I write out that tweet and then you just change the appropriate now to make it like you talking about me. And so, I be talking about you in a tiny reach.
Probably 75 percent of the same people, probably, but hey, whatever.
I think people enjoy it.
But I was thinking, "Should I at some point try and construct a tweet that just doesn't lend itself without just a cause like I see what happens when you either either here... not paying attention, like Yeah, sure.
And so I just... Maestro Portland, Oregon is a abundantly looking like it's doing that and then doesn't do it.
My home of the Portland on the West Coast or whatever.
You have a Portland over here.
Yeah, also yeah, though I haven't been there in quite some time. We like to see you try, I guess, is what I was... was it happens.
I may have just exercised entirely the impetus to do it, but I tattooed a... it's a good way to govern, of ideas. On the one hand, there's... there is a certain degree of so bullshit, that ever doing the thing, because you just keep talking about how you're gonna do a thing. And I think this is a Oriente S thing. You keep talking about how you wanna do. You should actually just do it... or tales take a stab at doing it and maybe you'll do a bad job, maybe I won't work. Maybe you could learn that there's assumptions we're making, that you need to figure out still, all sorts of things you can learn when you try and do a thing but just try and do it. And then I actually had a chance of doing it, instead of always talking about how some day you're gonna do it.
And I think there is, I think for a lot of people, Twitter is like a leader valve for that a leader valve for doing anything, because you're always kind of talking about it and joking about it and... Oh, one of these days, Barbara. But what you really do in his type in a box on the internet now, unless what you're doing is whatever make it a Twitter bot or drafting some bank memes, or something. Yeah, Twitter Annette certainly be a means of production depending on the specific thing you're doing but generally I think that's true.
And I certainly do that all the time. I'll do stuff that is like a half-joke, tweets where I say, Well, here's an idea for a game.
I think it did that today. It's like, you know, and it's not because there's a really good idea for game and I need to work on it so hard that I'm gonna go tell Twitter about it. It's more like this would be kind of funny. Someone did it, but I'm not gonna... and so I'm just gonna do that. And I think that's the flip side, like there's the Well stop saying you're gonna do a thing and go do a thing thing, but there's also the admit that you don't actually want to do the thing.
And just to talk about the thing and put it out there, let it be a to university and if so, in Tori have two responses to that, right?
Number one, now that you've got kind of a burgeoning art, copy, I think a lot of people are a lot happier giving you a lot of leeway with all the projects, you don't finish, which is cool because you do finish a lot of projects.
And number two, at least, you're not tweeting about your wife's vagina.
Oh my God, I missed this.
Apparently I missed this.
Oh wow, okay, so let's... I am aware of the ten Vogue. Get your last summer, a Gina thing. I saw that going around like a week ago, you didn't see Matt, and his... I have eaten the plums that were in the white sea.
You just didn't think about it 'cause you can't think about that, okay having that kind of it.
I didn't feel like that was a tweet about Kay? I felt like that was a tweet about a figure of a... this is going back to your mom joke thing where your mom joke. It could, in some cases, be an actual cutting attack on someone specific, mom. But generally speaking, it's discussing a figurative mode.
So I guess this is just a different way. You and I view the world, you know, 'cause I'm often very defensive about mom jokes in the same way that I was just like, do really... but, clearly I was the person who took it the off way.
Because it does feel like a somewhat specific interpretation. The tweet seems more of a... I am going to combine a Carlos Williams with a... a great pun on vagina without actually trying to, in Erie with ice box, don't know... yeah, no, I see what you're coming from now. But yeah, I was worried that I had missed some sort of frank discussion of anatomy and so I'm actually feeling genuinely relieved right now, that this is just a disagreement on the degree of specificity of interpretation of a lion care push hasn't been on an episode of the show and I don't know how long now, but it's nice to know that man still shows up one with all the damn time.
Sure, we got... he's active on the internet where you and I both at least sometimes live.
Yeah, sometimes yes, sometimes I be off-line so I can do it in the world, I go, but yes, the weirdest and thing about driving back from upstate New York yesterday, which was like I know like a seven-ish hour drive, I stop once or twice is literally like being off-line that much time during a day is slightly unusual for a just cause I thought, think of my phone in my pocket and even if I'm doing something else, like hiking, or going for a walk, I hanging out with my friends. You know, if something makes a noise, at me, which is usually just texting, but occasionally, I'll check Twitter or something else, but when I drive the car I do not.
So it was very interesting being kind of that disconnected and then I got home, I was like, what happened and the answer is still no thing all summer, is good like that, too.
Yep, let's see, so... hey, on 41 has one interesting thing about it besides being a Talend room or just the fact that it's a Paleo parole is kind of bolt shitty for me to to try to help it up.
Well, and you did four out of this in the last podcast. So I guess the fact that there's any connection at all between the podcast is sort of adorable.
Yeah, something to tell me about when Pete's one of those Pentagonal numbers, I remember what these are.
So A, you got to do one at all and they put it in dots around it, and then more dots around those dots. And I kind of like those... so it's like... like one, five, 00-15-22, so it's a 16-16 or... so that's how much you add each time one and then add five to say.
Yeah, I've been thinking about number numeric sequence is a lot lately, and I just say, I love those crazy cut-out nonsense things you do and you should probably quit your job and start selling those to smart nerds for their children.
I'm going to keep my job and so on is the plan, and maybe I'll actually get around to that this week I had the back order so some supply, so that I wouldn't be like "Hey these are for sale, is I hold three and now I'm out and Hey, I'm going on vacation and whatever, but they're really cool, like they're activating in a way. I like your art, generally, but these I have to stop looking at them 'cause I like them too much.
I feel like they really split the difference between sort of a graphical idea. Certainly, these are coming from partly the same places. A lot of the painting work I've been doing a painting tends to be like, "Okay here's a four-square foot composition that's got like these ideas in it and it's all there together in a piece. And these are more like if you grabbed a square inch of a painting, and another square in a painting is sort of played with them. And it's interesting how different that is, it's a way to sort of in the tactile "filly aspect of that is I think really the thing that makes it more engaging, you can look at a thing and be like... Well, that's probably loosely with the inside of Josh's brain.
Looks like but with this thing, you can mess around with it and you're like... Well, that's kind of what the inside of my brain, looks like or part of it now.
Exactly, I like it.
Oh, speaking of other things we care. How are you like in your first two days?
A trivia a great deal.
I enjoyed both days and it's been fun popping on the form a little bit and seeing you on there and I've won both of my mates so far, so that's very exciting.
That is, than me, better than my other refer.
I don't know how Kevin punk in is doing.
So Josh has joined the learned league as my refer which is the back story for people who may be... have missed all the other things.
And somehow I got to refer to guide this time.
Is it because of the server problems?
I know I don't wanna ask, because I'm afraid one of you guys will get to go now.
I don't remember what Kevin's last name is it's like pruning or something? At any rate, I won one and lost one. And I think one of my other referrals or a friend of mine who got referred by someone else lost one and tied one and I want people to have a good time to the extent that they can.
So I was a... yeah, I know that you were doing well.
Yeah, it's tricky, like I'm happy that I'm doing well, but I attribute a nothing to it 'cause it's such a small sample size and I share like, I'll be very happy if it turns out that I actually do reasonably well in general, but it's also possible I'll have a couple of strong opening days and then really just blow chunks for a week and I'm emotionally okay with that, too.
I have in Lumpkin that's my other referral has lost to do, don't know and lot just flat out because the people... he was playing answered more questions right then he did so.
Alright, Kevin, did you get the Michael Flatley, question right, who is that?
The Lord of the Dance, came.
I had no idea when you saw him Cally where you're like, Oh, Michael Flatley was Lord of the Dance, guy.
Yeah, I mean, not really.
Oh okay, but yeah I care about that.
It's weird 'cause it was like his name left to my mind immediately when I started reading Irish dancing blah, blah, blah, I was like, Yeah, but 19-75 is he that old? But then I was like, Dance Lord is like, "Okay Lord, it's got a a Lord to the dance, but I wouldn't have known his name, I wouldn't have known his name at all. I got it after the fact, I was like, "Oh yeah, that must be his name.
Now, I said "chinnor something I was like, who was dating Hough was, I thought I was gonna be that kind of irony in it.
On also, he's black, that's unusual.
And also, I was like, who danced in the 70s, like the Capricorn grey eyes, the end yep, yeah, I was weird.
I basically learned that everything I thought I knew about Michael Flatley was wrong, but to pay... but also, you know, yes anyway, it's been a delightful time. I probably just "Lindau too much because I'm just gonna go over all the questions and sure, no fun but it's in grease, there and I'm glad it's working.
Yeah, have a good time, cool.
So yeah, I met after stuff. Let's, I do the specific thing with, let's take a look at the old jobs board at a one jobs jobs, find Milagros okay.
I don't know what that means, and I read the question and I still don't know what it means. And it's in Portland. So can you tell me what that means?
I don't know if an ether I mean I know by, I don't know, what she's looking for, but presumably anyone who could actually help her find it, we'll know what it is. So, you know, if you're important and you can help Bendigo it, whatever the "almelo are, this is your opportunity.
I mean, Wikipedia didn't help.
It's just a nightmare. I, I'm not used to that much. Not knowing what a word means, you know what I mean?
A very confusing.
But yeah, there's a great job at Pete. There's a great job at near public radio. There's an interactive developer job. Probably the only job where I'm not like... Oh, it's a great job, because I don't know what interactive development is. Full Stack. You know how those things go. P-20s. Looking for someone to help her do you Clay stuff. And then there's a solution architect, which again, is interactive whatever designer. But you'll know if it's you and it's a message is it's job. So anybody who knows me personally, that's kind of near where I am in the summer so yeah get on a people jobs, yeah, they're good jobs and I almost I'm working on some like I wanna get all the Vermont libraries that have websites, on to the Vermont Library Association website, so you can click through and link to all of them, but it's proven more difficult than I thought it would be because all I have is an Excel spreadsheet and I have to turn it into an HTML thing. And so for somebody who's smart with that kind of stuff, I suspect it would take 11 minutes, but for someone like me who's just doing a lot of dumb Find and Replace like a dumb calculator, it's sort of hard.
So I may actually toss it up on jobs. And be like, "Look if this takes you five minutes, I'll give you ten bucks. And that's a pretty good hourly right? Just make this a no please.
No, I was like I put it into Google Docs, but the HTML Google Docs does is appalling. You know, it'll export each email, but it's got all this crap in it.
I don't know, I feel like there's an easy way, and it's... I don't generally look forward to the idea of Apocalypse exactly, but if there was some sort of alien virus sent towards Earth, by vengeful, angry Aliens is possible.
Or possibly benevolent ones, I don't know, not a ton on where this is coming.
All it did was destroy the infrastructure of document types on Earth, and we just had to start over from scratch with like relatively straight forward relational databases and flat file text. I think I'd be okay with that.
I think I can go on.
I used to work in with Latin text right so I could do like a complicated series of fining replaces where every time there's a new line replace it with a draft equal, but I can't do it in a fucking spreadsheet. And I'm not clever enough, with relational databases.
Yeah, but... yeah, no I'm with you.
And especially 'cause I'm in a Mac environment, so I have pages and numbers, not word in Excel as opposed to sheets and bullshit whatever that thing is and yeah, but it's still... I'm ahead of almost everybody else in the state of Vermont. In terms of being able... like in the library community.
Yeah, like just having these on the web where if someone could click them like... Oh, you're on the Vermont Library Association website, maybe you'd like to go. We were some Vermont libraries are the fuck.
Maybe that's my low project for today is talking to you.
It's a good project.
Speaking on projects yourself projects.
Maybe we all Bolton projects.
Well, I'm not at a job post or in a ten projects.
There were no project for three weeks, two weeks at that age, it was pretty quiet.
Yeah, I don't know, I don't know people just do another shit I guess. I don't know, in that cluster on May 22, second pole a right project I should submit that project. It's weird, yeah.
A spring break.
I like projects, but it was like some Twitter stuff some Twitter stuff at death. I can document that.
That thing was interesting. So this was Miss Jenny put us together, I think is a one-one I think she had that awesome project. Let me double check. And she's got a lot of really cool projects.
LinkedIn thought leadership generator. Didn't she do the one about the homeless?
Yeah, you can have like a can of corn, your name on a can of corn. It was that project that kind of... nobody got really... but I loved it, really one of my favorite things.
I'm trying to remember it as names for change, so like, "Hey you don't need my most to a shelter and get your name on a toothbrush or something.
Yeah, yeah, and I enjoyed it conceptually, but I'm sorry go on with your dad came that ethic, which I have to say, it's it's tricky on the one hand, you're trying to sort of be accessible and play on. Hey, cute cats and cat are fun and games of cats and you're also playing on Hey, you wouldn't want cats to be unhappy or what not in the game basically takes these two things at the premise to try and motivate you to do a good job of doing financial management through a cat metaphor.
And I think it's worth poking at me and secretary at played through three fence in arouse Ted out.
But it's a little bit tricky, 'cause it's really, it's trying to discourage you from fleshly.
Getting into debt is the educational context for this, which is one.
And the thing is that cats are the debt so the game teaches you the dead is hard to manage and can get out of control, no matter what by creating a no-win scenario, where you're just swimming in dead cats a little bit jerky, messaging-wise, yeah, but I thought it was cute and I... they have this bad tendency to look at educational demonstration games, be like, "Yeah but to really make this work is a really solid satisfying, replicable game. You should do this and that, is like Dude.
It's not what they're doing, they're not trying to make that the next fact that you played it at all.
Yeah, exactly, I thought, I thought it was nice, I thought the messaging is complicated. A lot of the book's amazing, the stuff that she builds is amazing. Just generally speaking, but yes, I don't know.
Well, and I was at some point in my life, where all these things like poke me in a weird way, and I'm just like, Oh, even though I know that me, there's also ex-barbers up to his old tricks while new tricks, he's up to tricks, he's also... his birthday was a right one.
I'm pretty short, I'm so bad at birth, I'm not bad when somebody is actually on a social media service being like, "Hey it's my birthday but Max also tweets a lot so I'm not totally sure if I'm gonna be able to get to a point where a... Wait, did he use the birthday? Yeah, it's birthday was the eighth of Machado birthday.
I was like clicking through Twitter. Like, where is this birthday?
Oh right, we had that feature. A metaphor that in it.
Alright, yeah, Happy Birthday, Max and sorry go on about his phone thing.
He's right in homes, running pumps, to... in Twitter, they fit on Twitter.
So not like old Twitter they're not like always 140 characters last, but you know still short and to no one even got a... remember, Twitter even used to be on a... it's gonna be weird like five years from now, than he was a... Hey remember when Twitter existed? And we were not yet destroyed by the alien anti-document type beer when Twitter was still a format that things could be in before the virus from the aliens made us a teeter.
Twitter, how even as much as i... above to hate it for all sorts of reasons, at least it's fucking HTML. For the most part. I was just reading something earlier today about Instagram disclosing the secret sauce of their algorithm or whatever. The Fuck those guys. But like Instagram is like even more of a closed environment, that Twitter is... you know what I mean?
Yeah, every time, Monica comes around and I'm like, There's one candle there's three, there's two, so now back to four or so.
I don't their ALCO they're stupid ago.
Twitter is at least HTML.
I was gonna mention this one actually is is like mentioning it to address the fact that maybe it's so, so as a project, but I think that's kind of interesting. And he talks it interesting that Frank Lucas documentary, which is, it's a perfectly nice short five-minute film about BMX rider. It's nicely put together et cetera, but it's also a first project... a project from a brand and is a person.
Yeah, so it's a film maker, as film company signed up and post a project and honestly signing up on posting projects. The okay way to do it. Sometimes I will just not put that project rough, but at least you will not be bad for spamming 'cause you didn't do anything wrong. You just displayed questionable to outright Portis in this case.
I think it was, there was nice enough, you know, I always feel Wired about branded short films because I presented by blah, but that's kind of like it in this the sort if that's how you get your money to make a thing that has utility maybe that's all right, exactly.
And I don't think it's even a question of, like, well, does it justify the existence of this five-minute documentary if it's Brandon 'cause whatever, no, that's like there's a ton of cool shit on a mile. It's a little bit weird when it's my five projects because they're like, "Well what's the... the communitarian aspect of this, but it turns out that sometimes as a first time one-off I'll say, "Okay we'll see where this goes.
And I don't think that, I mean, that's kinda one of the things I like about me.
Filter, like you can do that and there's human beings there who are like, "Oh make sure this doesn't get out of control, basically, and it later like, Yeah, no right or This is out of control, so you are done... yeah, we use a podcast, by the way, we "intertoto time seven.
I remember it was a little bit later.
I think that one sat for a couple as two. I was just busy after we recorded. If I remember that, I don't know... whatever, anyway, maybe it's... we go on site today, I'll go on the record, it's June third, we already said if a Sunday, but I'll say people from doing the detective work.
It's Sunday, June third. Yeah, I just was gonna try and figure out what among the links in a fit into the time time, the time thing, the time to judge a time times are on my side.
Yes, this is a song. Well, we got that Cho went, you got a money back, you got a money back are, and I like that I think.
I think that could be hauled over into the commercial advertising.
Roselle is... so just what we were talking about, right?
Make some alterations to... so I do a ton for... and to a tuition talk about benefit.
The blue I... yeah, I do.
There was a lot of... Let me sort out my cats real quick because you know the blue and the green. I have to say, they kinda look like each other when you're looking at just the little tiny the little team Fatima although here's the thing that I found really interesting. Meditate this month. There were a couple times at least where I saw a thing on the Internet, I came over to mediator and people were already talking about the thing on the internet and it was funded to to them about it.
Or at least read or at least read along.
So one of the early examples of it, and I don't think this made it into the podcast. Was cars basically just a link like a Captain America.
Here's the video, the link is completely the post is the minimum viable post, you could make basically for this topic, but there was a great conversation, and if you were kind of familiar with the context around it, he had performed the song on Saturn, live and then the song dropped. I guess as the kids say, right, then like at night. And so then everybody was kind of thinking about it and talking about it over the Sunday and then kind of Monday was when all the thought pieces and think pieces and stuff came out, and that video, there's a lot going on in that video. It's funny actually, we got a... in fact, for me just the other day from someone saying, "Hey I'm kind of bothered. I don't understand what the rationale is. I made a post, and then it was deleted, and I think that was the wrong decision because it certainly seemed worth this guy saying, Oh, it's sure it's just a single music video, but it seem... or I thought it was a lot going on and would have been sourced for thoughtful neutered discussion, and it was that Chaldean bio video, and they had just not noticed that it was a double and that's why they put... so it's okay, everything is a fine, good light. Your analysis of the content worthiness of that is opposite. Someone else just got their first... so that worked out very well, but the... yeah, yeah, and I had kind of not really paid that much attention to the video, like right after I did come out just because everyone was like, "Oh my God, and I was like, Oh, sounds Hey, I don't wanna deal with it, just yet.
And so then a couple days later I looked at it and then I watched a lot of videos about the video and then I kind of dove into the thread, and I found a lot of there there, and enjoyed it.
Yeah, and Donald Glover is just everywhere this month because I just saw so little, last week, so hey, yeah, which you know.
I spent some time on fan for the shoulder throw on fanfare, is like the gift that just keeps on giving. I still need to the movie.
So, I've touched it, not that I'm okay, I'm not as worried about spoilers as I might be with something else 'cause it's like to a certain step. I know that handing Jean landed, we're gonna live, I'm pretty sure they're gonna make a right and they need each other.
And I mean there's a lot wrong with the movie, but I enjoyed it and the thread was fun because it's all meta-filter people talking about liking it or not liking it in that kind of nerve way where it's like... Well, I really thought this thing about the robot and whatever.
Oh, well, that wasn't my interpretation. So this other thing... Well, I thought, and it's a friendly conversation even though people are like... was it just kind of fan service, the movie or was there actually something going on there?
Yeah, but I watched it I guess opening week, I didn't even know it was just at my theater and Jim and I were walking around and we were like... We're tired, let's watch this movie and yeah, and then the threads been just going and going and going and fanfare, which has been nice. So a lot of dominoes. Nd I had kind of... I don't like it Landover much so 'cause I'm still in the beginning of it, there's just no women in it, so I was like, Well, Donald Glover and so it's been nice to find things about him that I could connect to.
Yeah, I really dug this post about, making a few yellow.
Was this at a post from a man?
And it's a video from a YouTube channel called Kwame. Japan that post nothing but weird like knife making and weapon stuff and I... they're not the people with the cat, the kitchen cooking cat people.
I assume not.
You would know if you've watched the channel at all.
No, I never want a... I found out of it because of this post but if you, if you're like, making a call out of knife that so weird, like... Okay, well what about making a knife out of literally everything else do, they're just like they're going down the list, so it's kind of like a... will it blend people except it's a will at knife that... Yeah, will it turn into a knife?
And the answer is always... yes, so yeah, just like Is it always... yes, I mean I only see videos of things in it looking like What knives... I'm watching this Yellow Knife.
But yeah, yeah, it's great.
It's just like, Okay let's create some gelatin set up and turn it into a knife and then... but some stuff to prove that it's actually sharp and then Milbank down and put the gel in and treats back in the little capsules. They came out of the whole thing.
Great, as in A is a little jelly treats.
We gave them out for Halloween one year, and kids were just like What?
No, is that what you don't like them or did it just turns to a lot?
I just... 'cause I don't know, that's where I kind of draw the line with gummy stuff, it's a little bit too much like flow or something, but just not my thing, not like other people shouldn't enjoy it.
Yeah, but we tried to give them out to people and I did not work this is great, I love it, it's good stuff.
Speaking of music, which apparently is what a lot of the things I liked this month, the very recent kid from Cleveland who wanted to persuade Weezer, to cover to Africa completely miss is what this powwow... can you say you're an Internet user? I don't know, there's a lot of internet is basically... plus, if it didn't involve making small Polina, tiles, I may have missed the last week, it's a... this was just, I saw it because Twitter very briefly, blew up about it, it was just a kid signed on to Twitter essentially just a bug Weezer, about doing this cover. And then they finally did nice.
Yeah, and it's that easy.
I trying to decide if I... I kinda wanna hear it, just 'cause it's come up now. I don't know if I think that user would do a cover of Africa that I would like, not that it would be bad, but I don't know if riverwalk the covering Africa, voice.
No, probably not, although you know I saw the acapella version of it at one time, which I think also was on meta filter, a long time ago, and that was just so good. I just basically never want to listen to that song again because I had done... yeah, and there's those two guys who play in bars, and they just do covers of all sorts of stuff on electric bass, and acoustic guitar. That there was a post about a few years back that I really enjoy too. Yeah, it's a good song for covering. So I think this is actually kind of like this is the downside of too much stuff is available down. Internet covers a band doing an unlikely cover. It feels like that was like this really sort of weird, cool random thing, like a real discovery thing in the mid-'90s, like 90s. I was when I started paying it. I'm sure this goes troop from before that but I sure... well, as a tenant, you get singer-song writers doing a singer-songwriter version of like a rap song.
I mean, that was one the Gord did gen and juice. And I know that there's problematic appropriation versions of it, but you really did get the alt country versions because everybody was doing a country back then.
Well, what I'm getting at is, like you had access to what you could actually find which up to a certain point, before the rise of "MPT trading essentially, and this is before so we're talking like mid-late '90s as my three came around and then later on as YouTube came around, I think, this is part of it. Like it used to be kind of a hustle to find that weird, cover that that band did of that song, and now you could spend literally a week nonstop just losing to bands, doing covers of other bands, songs it would fall in a slightly quieter.
Or is, Here's this, this ridicule. So, I've heard probably ten different covers of non-her songs, by Weezer. And it turns out that we are just not a super interesting cover band, I'm sure would be great to be at a show.
And you're seeing user and then they play a song that you like by another banner like, "oh this is Radnor me just it on on you to him. Like I always click on this, and then I'm like... and it's a weird thing, it's our cup overflow? It run it over. That's what I was going for. Yeah, well, it made me like, "Go try like... I mean, back that up. I had Center for cartoon studies is near her and they had an exhibit at the little Art Space down the street from me, and I was a gallery monitor at one point, and I got to read every comic book that they had there because not a lot of people came into the gallery, which was their loss because it was amazing. But one of the things in the gallery that somebody had done for a senior project at the Center for cartoon Studies was like a fan scene about Weezer. And I've never given "weser any thought whatsoever, you know, what I mean? Like when I got my Windows 2000 computer they were there singing this letter song, and that was the beginning and the end of anything I thought about with wiser.
He might have been the first video I saw in the late 90s on a computer sure before the Internet and everything else at the St.
What didn't like Buddy Holly? Come on, Windows CDs for a while, yeah, was a Buddy Holly.
I thought it was this water song, but one of them... yeah, Well, Buddy Holly had... that was the one with the Happy Days thing going on.
And I feel like that in... that was it.
Yeah, I was such a production piece.
Rimmer, back in the '90s when he eyelid. Like the aesthetic of an old show was a mind-blowing piece of video production and not like, "Oh it's okay, yeah, so that got done in a weekend and effects shop, right?
A child could do that during recess now.
Yeah, yeah, well, and I wish I can see on the stop playing fortnight for five minutes in my right, the kids to sort Nate, maybe I'll come back to that.
You were saying, I'm sorry.
Well, no, I just can't track down the sea because it was like some tiny little local maid thing, and I kind of wanna find it so I could come in, in the thread and be like, "You should read this wire, but it wound up being actually very hard to sort of track down somewhere somewhere.
I wrote it, I don't know, I enjoyed this post about bad childhood sports memories essentially. And it's interesting, I enjoyed it mostly for this is a medical or threat. I know that's going to be interesting or at sound.
A little "Warley by the way, am I?
Yeah, just... you were for a second interesting well, let's keep an eye on that.
Now you said, okay, alright, so I'm sorry I didn't mean that.
Yeah, no, no, no, no, no. Anyway, it's a post about basically in not that terrible thing that happened when you were playing sports as a kid, like a sports failure that you can't forget the time that you dropped that easy pop fly to right field. It would have one. You guys, the game, that sort of moment. And the thread that ensues is everybody talking about their sports fail.
Yeah, exactly, it's a perfect set up for that. And a whole lot of people have memories about stuff there. I ended up sort of talking about some of my weird childhood sports memories and it's an interesting mix of variously funny and cry anecdotes, and then people sort of talking about the ideas, and the systems that lead to situations along the lines of childhood sports fails and the way, it was really slow and small and so I always got picked last for everything, and nobody wanted me on their team also. I was very shy and cried easily, so yeah, I can just imagine where although it was actually pretty good, at kick ball and a couple other things you know, but like other than that, I can also remember visiting my cousins and Arkansas in '1976 and playing kick ball and kicking some ball and one of the boys we were playing with was like, "I've never seen a girl "gabala like that and I'm like, "Are you fucking kidding me? I am small and weak.
But that was the South. Basically. I'm gonna look forward to reading this thread.
I think I do. There's stuff that you on.
It's an interesting... Matt's funny, I got over it like elementary school sports were the worst, and then for whatever reason, by the time I was doing sports in high school we could do frisbee. I played a cross, a little bit like I was never a sporty and I didn't get any better at stuff but I found like a path that didn't suck for me and there were no antagonist shit-EDS playing with me. The integrative shit had went to go play real sports and left the rest of us to just flounder around, a gym class, you know, what I mean?
Like if you were on a team, you didn't go to JIM which meant that Jim was no longer full of incredible assholes, because they were all in teams.
Yeah, perfect, well, that's great.
I'll go back and read that thread, you what was the other thing?
Oh, this was like a random thread from 2010, but I was listening to my favorite to trivia podcast and they talked about the clown egg register where if you have like a clown face and you want a register it to be like This is my clown face and nobody can take my cloud face if you're a professional clown okay, you painted on an egg, a man like you do this statistic there's a register of these eggs. Or then what?
So I was gonna come to men, filter and post this, but I was having a hard time finding the actual thing. And then I found this post by death Lucius from 2010, and it was a real thing and now I'm not entirely sure that things still exists, but the Flickr photo set that is from the Museum of these faces, does still exist. So you can still look at these pictures, but I think the museum where they were getting shown up may not be there, or they may be archived or et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
Any rate, compact egg register for words that you would not think would form a cohesive idea together. But they do, yeah, no, that's great.
And why not? It's a solid format.
Sure, I mean, it's solid, but anyway, the key takeaway for me here is that national clown week dot-coms side bar of subsection Site has two separate links about fear of clowns, so much. Is it necessary to address fear clouds?
That is one of those things that I didn't know until I became a lot more worldly like I was a kid were afraid to come with him, I wasn't afraid of clowns, and my sister wasn't afraid of clowns. I had one friend who was afraid of clowns, and she was weird. I mean weird for other reasons. So that didn't, it didn't register.
It is it has a kind of a normative thing. And it really wasn't until I got older where I was like, "Oh my God, that's a real thing. You know that's a real thing that lots of people are afraid of clowns, and it is fairly normative, in a way. I would not have thought there was... oh, gosh, a fun little game. I feel like I should mention at least one interactive game, every podcast and the devil Tesla posted about a game called tic-tac-which is an ultimate tic-tac-toe online game ultimate "Ticino you say "What is that?
Imagine a tic-tac-toe board.
Now, imagine in ticket or boards or... I know recursion was very overwhelming.
So yes, it's a tic-tac-toe grid of tic-tac-toe boards and you and the other player are taking turns playing and which of the nine boards you play on an even term is determined by the position of the tick tack to mark the point played in the previous... and so if they're playing, if they play in the bottom left of the current board, then the next play will happen in the bottom left board, unless certain late game and wait qualifiers there's a couple of complications to be for, but it's weird, it's surprisingly it goes from TechNet which is classically the game where if you're good enough to be competent at it, you are a master, and also if you are like it's a terrier happens, you can just get all the rules and then that's it.
Congratulations, you both are to play the game well, enough that there's literally no game 'cause it's a tie every time.
Whereas ultimate Cato seems actually kind of complicated and interesting strategically.
And so this is a nice online implementation. And it was kind of fun. Like whenever a post goes up, that hashes online multiplayer games, you tend to run into ethics playing the game when the post is active. So it was kind of funny that people are run into each other, but anyway, sets... we're checking out if you feel like doing some complicated "Takao I recommend it.
I, I also of the things I like to talk about, I happened across the Internet discussion of what Rosen said, literally, as it was happening where I was like, "I don't remember if he was like getting up or we were getting ready to go, so I was reading the Internet while he's tying shoes, and I'm like, "Oh shit, "roadstead some shit. And he was like, What?
And then I was kinda looking through it and I was like, "Oh God, that's too bad she's totally fucking up. Something bad is gonna happen.
And then I was like click, click, click. Oh, uh, her show got cancelled. It had literally just gotten cancelled, when I was just catching up on whatever that happens, it's perfect.
And then I learned a little bit more about the Head of Programming at ABC, and hey, representation matters. And I was like, "I would like to talk to not filter about this. And the thread from Mark list, did not disappoint just 'cause I felt like I showed up in the middle of it, I kinda knew what was up with Rosanna. It was kind of like this weird... you know, she's a "Trumper but she also has a show. And it's kind of conservative, but is it... and what's really going on? And so it was fun to read the meta-filter. Hot takes on it, just because it really was like an odd situation that I really could use pre-digested for me.
And so, this red did that nice, yeah, no, I saw it going by and was not falling the whole thing, but immediately as soon as I saw that the cancel just came up with a easiest joke, I could, which was Rosanne Bard.
Oh, I thought, which I think probably a thousand people probably made in that five-minute window, but that's been about the degree to which I actually engage with the specific situation. Just was like, "Oh I didn't... she was kind of a best of shit.
I don't really want to spend more time thinking about... and today, I do a claim it on Ambien and like you, I have taken a bias. There is some funny Ambien manufacturers tweeted and they're like, "Hey one of the side effects of this medicine isn't that it makes you racist. There were a lot of funny brand tweets about the whole thing.
Yeah, I think the trick may be that maybe she drinks and takes Indian maybe sometimes people maybe... maybe as a series A shitty person.
I mean, it's a bit the long history of being racist is caused by her being racist. Yeah, yeah, it was just sort of weird to watch people try to be like it was not me, it was the drugs and I'm like that drug is not the drug you would pick the sleepy drug makes you wake up and be racist.
Forget it, now in... yeah, and the other thing that happened this weekend, actually, so I just got back from New York and song dog spent A does this, cover bridge, half-marathon thing in Vermont, and it's a couple of towns over for me and so we had dinner last night, which was lovely, and he's a wonderful man. You may also know him as language at son-in-law of a sinistral.
Knew that I forgot, but yeah he must have known it, I forgot, but he recommended 'cause I was like, oh, doing the podcast Maloney, had a job.
So, I dot... but this fascinating thread by cash for LED cash reliever led about soldier truths speech, because basically she, her first language was Dutch and she gave this speech in... oh God, I don't remember, there was her original speech and then there was the speech that got published eyes, that was kind of like, I don't know how you'd say it, kind of blocked up to make her sound more like a black woman and less like a black woman who basically spoke Dutch as a first language. And then there's also the version of it that like kids read at school, which isn't either of those versions. And it's just a fascinating, really interesting thread which an early comment, I'm surprised you guys didn't delete about white feminist being terrible. Not that they're not, but yeah I don't know, I'm going to some... I was at on shift.
It let... I'll put myself off the spot.
That was, it was Friday.
Were you working on Friday? Yeah probably, yeah I do whatever is there's a lot of... there's a lot of shit going on.
Sometimes it was only flat on a total.
It's like such a good example of the way that things get taken for granted having historicity just because it's been long enough that we sort of assume... well, that's obviously it's a historical fact and cooling together our versions about the context of the time. And yeah, just... nope, just absolutely not.
That is not actually what the situation was at all. And it's weird, and yeah, really interesting post because of that. Yeah, yeah, I just thought it was great.
So, Goleta, you similarly of long-standing culture important. yaar Laurel, did you engage with a gay Laurel situation?
We sure did. And something is wrong with my head because I can't make it say any no matter what.
A good light pressure I use every slide I try every different cookies on I have every man in the world explaining the me what, what the fucking waves do, and I just ate.
Would you have to understand is the over tons of formats seriously is a set that as the interest in that or at all that is uh, I don't know that I ran into anybody else saying like they just couldn't get it period, but a lot of people were saying like, "Oh well, okay, this one tweak version I can hear it, I can get "ariete rally can't get Laura.
And I wonder if there's specific audio perception, things that drive who does pick up what and when, I mean I'm sure there are, but that yeah, no, I mean there are people, right? A little bit about kind of which things would make you more likely to hear one or the other, but yeah it was weird.
But you know, again, you wanna talk about it with my benefited so that was fun to get to.
What's always interesting to me about these kind of random bullshit who cares things 'cause there's no value, you can assign to it, right?
You just hear a thing or you hear the other thing and they're the same, yeah, is what it kind of reveals about people's personality in that they can or cannot do, except the fact that other people can't hear a thing, you know what I mean, that it is sort of interesting for me to listen and be like, "I actually can't understand how somebody could hear something different, because I am hearing a sound with my ears.
So clearly, that sound is here and I don't know what you're hearing, but clearly your brain is wrong, but some people really, really feel that way, whereas I'm just like Whatever, bodies or strange, but that kind of idea of what of what I see is green. And what you see is green, are actually two completely different colors.
We would never know because of our language.
So that to me was one of the interesting parts of it and just watching different people being like, super planing about it or not.
But I do feel like I should try it with different speakers.
Yeah, no, I definitely got different results in a couple of parts of headphones in my desk top speaker and... but there's definitely a weird... I think that not being able to chase yearning down is maybe not so weird 'cause I feel like the default perception for people who've settled their brain and it seemed like a trended towards Laurel, as for like an ending point, even if they were definitely a gay person up front, or could get any out of it.
It seems like we just to pick up more a world and I, I don't know enough about psych acoustics to explain why that is, but I have this gut feeling of the brain sort of identifying the lower frequency patterns and then just sort of really holding on to them, is part of it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you're talking about.
There's an interesting thing in Audio Production audio mixing where you can actually take a recording, that has based notes like base guitar playing or something long in the piano. That's got a very distinct like base element in there playing a base instrument and if you take that and filter out the actual fundamentals, the lowest tones, like the Low-E That is the E of playing like a low E, on a guitar, you can take out that actual low frequency and leave in the higher frequency overtones, that are also part of the sound of that and the rain will reconstruct that Low E-note. A whole lot of the time, like you bring it to an... even if those parts of it are missing, it's like, on the line or whatever. The little fuzzy dots are optical lesions. If you hold your hand out over the sidewalk on a sunny day at noon and looked at on the sidewalk and you can see your hand, you know, if you're looking at your hand and the shadow you're like, "Oh it's my hand. But then if you block off your vision so you only see the shadow on the sidewalk and cancer anymore.
Obviously, this is a very... so, so, metaphor, but I know you can construct the reality of your hand being there even though it's just implied by the other shapes that leaves in the world.
And yeah, I think it's the brain somehow, just like "Oh I know I know this has to be coming from that note, that's what this series of overtones, belongs to. So that notes obviously, there which is probably some that will identify what you think the fundamental part of that note, is, it's those big booby-based parts of it, and yeah, that's only a part of what the notice.
Yeah, so that may be part of it. That may be part of why Laurel... sticks around. Once you've identified Laurel is... it's still there even if you cut out some of that based on stuff by listening on tanning speakers or something, I don't know, it was neat there was anything.
Also, I just wanna mention in passing as kind of a-ha thing. Cloud is shutting down or has shut down. And this was no other one of those things where I was like... Why are people talking about cloud on a time shutting down?
Because I haven't thought about it in a really long time.
That's exactly what I was at. I love the fact that with the news that cloud is shutting down. People who had rightly realized that it was done with them, to be excited about cloud years ago are logging into clout again, right before the shut down. Just to be more detailed about making fun of the fact that cloud is going away, it's like, sure, by not the water post by not the water.
So I thought that was funny.
Did I come in in this trade, the company that bought it and then turn it off is called like... that's weird, like this a weird thing to call a company, I mean everything's like we're on thin the call company to a cousin.
Well, it's also an element isn't it, is it also an element?
Yeah, but I think a lot of the people who know what it is, I think of it as a medicine for treating depression, but also a really good a one track, and it's got kind of like a cock-in balls ask... what do you call that chemical structure, which is a ton.
Yeah, yeah, that is sort of done with some wing man.
Yeah, that's interesting, but yeah, I think for anybody who's spent any time with people with mental on this is to take a lot of lithium. You'd be like, "Why did you maybe a company that... that's so fucked up, but yeah, I don't know, I may not be sensitive on the subject of the "Themis medicine, enough to... to, yeah, eat is a go-to with me but I mean it's one was like 'diversity matters' things right, because probably they aren't either and yet there's definitely gonna be a lot of people who are like... Yeah, I wanna mention one more I wanna mention, a slightly deep cut and bring it back around to our learn league discussions.
I call E-Lambert.
This is a post that I'm just bringing up again, 'cause I found it when I was Googling reading member.
So explain what's going on here.
So this post I'm linking will tell you none of this because it's just a round up of some best wrong answers from patients were available to people who weren't.
You can see him even if you're logged out apparently otherwise the post probably we've been flogged to death. This is from last year, this was a post by a man in a sea.
2017, I to... this was like from tomorrow.
No, no, yeah, this is from a week in the future from a 2018.
I don't know, I had... okay, I'll explain this as opposed to a Tintern about a bunch of best wrong answers from "learned-ly which the trivia thing that I'm now, participating in to that we've talked about a bunch of times because then I'm in a matinee Taryn to now and much other fights, and anyway yes, this was a post of a round up a bunch of funny wrong answers intentionally wrong answers basically. But the title of it is "Just knee-Lambert. And the reason I found this poses not because I was looking up learned Leyte on benefit, but because I was looking up knee-Lambert, Because knee-Lambert is not the name of the actor who played Skyler White on Breaking Bad. That actress name is an a gun. But if you were... say you were cheating at trivia, if you were at bar trivia and you're looking on your "foral quick to figure out, "Oh who played Skyler White and Google Skyler light. You might get the Wikipedia page for Carter white or IMDB page or the light where it might say The sky, the White Princess knee-Lambert princes.
Because I... consists French and names born as... so that would be your maiden name is A-S.
Originally got Lambert that she met Walter life that got married to begin. Catherine, So it's kind the hit me Lambert but your pub trivia, so you're like, "Oh I... gateway was played by new Lambert. Okay, right, set down.
And so there's the whole news the weird thing last year, where someone got caught cheating, because they did exactly this and they wrote down the Lambert as the name of the actors... instead of "antiguan that's the whole story.
And I found that delightful, and I went looking for more details on the internet, and I just landed on this post-Funimation Medfield nilambur, and in no way discussing any of that inside the content of the post and I thought that was just like most perfectly oblique thing, so I wanted to bring that back around and say "Hey I see that now I saw that, I get it, I get that reference?
Captain America I get that reference. Do you want talk a medical cure?
Sorry, Captain America a cabin America in the new film. He's like Chris savings like Ah, I get that reference on it, 'cause you know he was frozen after World War II, and he woke up in modern America and all of a sudden over is making references to things he doesn't get... because he's been in... so I rate get one, and then... so he got a job at one point I was like, "Hey I got that reference.
Yeah, I haven't between the sort of war against all of that, all were like half the donated the in.
Yeah, I don't know, I'm not caught up either freaking of a toast, I gather, but this was probably in the first Avengers film, I think maybe is when that happened, but you see it in a Jeffers.
Well, some it will make a joke. And then someone posted a picture of Chris Evans, is Capita Erica pointing and sort of smiling, and saying, I get that reference, but as a chief yes, I got a filter as when a filter.
I would like to start with this post that I read and I commented in and then it had a happy ending. This is by Nikita, who had a public speaking event coming up and they needed to be the host and they were freaked out and need to know how not to be an out-freaking mess, and people gave them a lot of good suggestions. And then the very last comment is you guys... I feel like I had a big invisible international group of kind, folks cheering me on from the sidelines etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Everything went well, they were very happy about it and it just was one of those like, Hey, everything made a difference. And it was just one of those good threads, where people are fall, and it makes a difference. Nielsen, that was a happy outcome. I was an RA. Well, excuse me, that's a little bit of book, a little bit up in the member happen there.
I've just lost my tabs entirely.
Tell me more, tell me more about nice things that asked me to filter.
Okay, well here's one that's kind of a, a tricky question. I'm not myself right now basically. Hey, I've got a friend who's working with a school system. They've got a legal requirement that sex ed has to include an abstinence component.
It's got to be presented by someone who isn't religious.
The sex ed stuff is kind of alright, but they need to do this part and then... and it's in that rate because absolution is stupid, it doesn't work like the sciences, against it, but it's a real question that happens to real people, right? The answer isn't gonna be like, "Fuck the man like you.
So at any rate, terrific who is a halted Gator basically gives a bunch of sort of good information that answers the question as some actual curriculum that's useful, but it's also like most of this stuff is crap but if you really need to teach this year, some stuff that's helpful.
And I thought that was good because, I mean, what can you do, right?
Sometimes you're stuck teaching stuff that is shitty, but at least you can give people less shitty stuff is the sort of normal body shame, stuff.
And wait, I got to ER effect. You were super helpful.
Yeah, it goes to me.
Yeah, she's read.
Yeah, I enjoyed just... kind of partly just for the local flavor, and politics of it. This question core courage basically. Hey, we're thinking about moving to the North-West were in Portland or maybe Vancouver, Washington. Should we look for a neighborhood? They'll be nice and walkable, for stuff.
Oh hey, you're A... I've shamed you and ask me to filter a lot more to a... I don't think that the "otani think it is too.
It's nice, some of the credit there goes to the secretary who will Cain. Just text me like, "Oh hey, check this out, Answer this question.
Yeah, I can't answer that.
Okay, thanks to... but I think I found this one all on my own unless she sent it to me and I forgot.
In which case I think I was just working and I came across it, for one reason or other. But they're basically where should we look?
And the question is interesting like people have asked like, where sold. We look in Portland, before but there's definitely a temperature taking aspect to the answers 'cause they got a variety of questions people suggested stuff. I have my own take on it, but I'd say I sold the third of the questions were like, "Oh I live here. Here are some nice spots. Also just, I'll move here just it's a bad time and it's, it's weird everything's so expensive and I just wouldn't... which is a totally legitimate and... or if it's framed up with other stuff, if someone was just like, "Fuck Portland and obviously not, but people are like... Well, here's my advice, and also here's my take, that's all right.
But it was interesting seeing that as a recurring theme. So because my own answer, I'm like, "Hey shit's expensive.
I would not be able to buy my house right now, if I can, it's a reasonably expensive in some ways because there's just kind of a bubble right at that cost more than exactly the same. Allstate wood in, I don't know, Vancouver is an over far enough away to be cheaper or no, I think thanks a little bit cheaper than Portland but it's got more expensive too, 'cause everything's been going on to some extent because people have been going to Vancouver because Portland's been expensive.
Me in the SAN. The pressure on prices up there too and then there's one or two people in the three.
It's expensive compared to it 18 years ago, but like I, I... not the east as it is not a Bushwick not San Francisco, it's not a... you're not motion New York. If you can afford a house you can afford a house, which is... it's so weird that sort of treadmill of like... Well, but what's expensive, 'cause... yeah, I think, well I mean "Portland's not expensive but it's no Cleveland Heights where you can really get a deal, but then a random where you can buy a 14 room Italianate mansion for 399000, or a "Aotearoa a mansion for that, yeah, yeah, so it's weird, that I'm always sort of struggled in a linear mansion, but I don't know why anyone will buy it in is probably a lot to bite off, but I won't buy it, or a lot to chew.
Maybe it's... maybe people understand that their fiscal now their eyes, eyes Maliseet upon curve.
If your eyes are bigger than your stomach, then you might bite off more than you can show. Am I marrying these two metaphors together successfully, it 'cause your eyes are bigger in stomach or you take for that you can eat, but then you birthing. It's 'cause, metaphors are bad. Mostly like they're just, they're a good... well, so here's the Italianate mansion and this was two years ago, and the price is dropped significantly.
Yeah, you get a real deal. Yeah, and it's amazing.
But, hey, just mean if it's so amazing, we don't... you live there and it's like your artist to eat a giant mansion in A and E market, you're gonna have to right Portland, you can just put on the sweater. Most the time, right?
Yeah, so tell what else you got.
What else I ask now the one to make a... well, there were a couple of interesting nerd bait ones that I enjoyed in kind of two different directions. One of them was my cat, which talks about Todos Africa, and how Mount Kilimanjaro really doesn't rise above the Serengeti.
That's not to where it is.
Oh, I missed you this is me.
You know, I didn't... here's what happened, this is what happened, some of times with these, which is such a shame, it's a professional risk but you'll note that there's a common or two that have flags on them.
And I think I saw this dread starting at something that was flagged and so I ended up sort of parsing it for context there, and sort of looking around and at that point I'm like, Okay, well, I've made a decision one or the other. That was a little bit of knowing. I'm done with this and then I don't go back up and say, "Oh but I wonder if it's an interesting... and so, I fly something in this.
You probably did in fact because I love this read so much. So basically, it's about factual-ers and songs and like my go-to example is always early morning, April for shot rings out, in a mentor sky environment.
The king was actually shot in evening which basically me and badger doctor posted it almost the exact same time, but there's a ton of them that are straight-forward, like The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" has a whole bunch of factual turns out.
That administer was fine but then a lot of people start getting goofy. So, ricochet is like contrary to what the Pitta Chrysler has never had a production model that seats about 220 otitis. A typical... well, but that's an answer to it.
There is no town called malice Bob barley didn't shoot the sheriff or the deputy et cetera, et cetera.
So I see it's just a fun thread and the hope cadet. What they were looking for.
I had one that maybe was also on your list maybe this was the next team, year-to-and-up even, but this was from Caledon know how long I still do to a T.
This question drove me crazy okay, and rightly so, it was an interesting one, but I loved it, of course, you did, he was asking what mass now that has like see the province. Like I could read the whole thing.
And then we had a combined 12-11 times in this.
It's a total definitional problem and that that also should not... and I don't know if you said this in in the thread itself or not, but he definitely had the flu and he posted this 'cause he wrote to me first saying, "Does this question makes sense?
I have the flu and I was like, "Oh yeah, I think it's... I mean, here's a couple things you trying expand. But yeah, sure, I think the answer is it gonna be weird? I think people are gonna have difficulty agreeing on what specifically you mean but... and then I also, I, I felt like it was some weird contest that I didn't understand. I didn't understand the question, I didn't understand the answers every clarification post did not help me understand it, it's so I just left it alone, I got, you liked it.
Someone on a... there's definitely some there, there, but I think it is such a difficult issue of definition. And being clear about what the terms are, and probably really... we like a panel of linguists to discuss this for about a notorious a first language, right?
Or No, I couldn't figure out, I have no idea if it's first in an or not, but he speaks English very epithet lines are not his first language.
Yeah, so... yeah, I don't know, but yeah, so I thought was very interesting.
I thought it was kind of a mess, exactly the way it seemed like, it probably would be a mess if someone came up with a linguistic question while I had the flu, but I also enjoyed it, tremendously and I recognized that the resulting asked me thread was a little bit of a mess, but I I think it if I... Somalia that's not like people getting into a fucking fight points.
Okay, "attainder was a lot us people were like, "I don't know what you mean.
What do you mean?
I think there was definitely some like push back on some of the definitional calls there, but no one was like butting and no one was writing angry emails to each other. As far as I know, so yeah, yeah, good point.
Oh hey, the other nerdy one, that went with the one dirty one is just, it's a very un-onetime that we see a lot of "Ashanti-er. So it's by a user called probably not that care. And Blair which I also think is is to be good. Use your name. But basically it's that cable problem, right? I really try and live my ethics as much as possible but how do you do that in this global capitalist economy and the user? You know, I'm assuming she it's good because she understands that it's kind of an impossible question, but it's just like, Look this is difficult for me, I struggle with it. If maybe you struggle with it, what do you do? Feel free to tell me I'm just over thinking it, et cetera. And so there's actually a really good thread where people are kind of thoughtfully trying to help and not just like you suffer from cognitive distortions you know what I mean?
Because the original poster, left open the door for like... I know some of this is just my brain doing it to me, but I also would like to know how to live ethically as possible. And so, there is nothing Cristal really good and interesting and compassionate. Not just like can't or you're doing it wrong, or whatever.
So I enjoyed reading along with it.
Nice, I was gonna say this seems like the sort of thing any that might be into the angels, and they're saying, "Hey yeah, this is important to me in a way.
You kind of know who the me fights are who live along those lines.
I, I, I'm always one of those, I put on your your gas master, what is it other games, performing other people?
And so I've got my particular view point that I didn't think was necessarily gonna help that read but I'm always looking for ways to waste to be a little better to do things a little better basically.
So I appreciated that.
Yeah, what else we got?
I think that's holy asked me.
I had to produce that was... we just do a quick look through some of the answers. I was in kind of a heavy answer. There's a whole bunch of kind of like, "Oh God, don't be this person, one that I'm just gonna kind of skip.
I enjoyed the talk, ports and white boards survey question thread.
I did not do that.
How old are you? Did you grow up with rock bar or white board?
So I think it's kind of US US specific.
But I was interested in it. There's a lot of ones that I kind of followed along with and I kinda wanted to know how it turned out, right?
There was a place that had mice there was a person whose friend needed some mushy food to eat, who after surgery was just not feeling that good, there was like no I'm bummed about Mother's Day. How do I kinda do this better? How appropriate is it to have a Day of the Dead? A celebration at a mostly white school. That one was kind of interesting. And at the very beginning of this podcast, month, the person who needed a site in take place in Massachusetts. So I'm waiting for some answers, or some follow-ups on some of them, but yeah.
And remaining for our listeners, patiently waiting for those answers is great. Posting comments to tell someone to update the Don't do that, don't do that, "just wait, just you'll get a... and I got the email from you that was like, Hey, so how did your question, help me brainstorm a birthday, I use for a milestone birthday question work out, and the answer is "I don't fucking no-till I'm a little closer to thinking about what I want, but unfortunately, part of it was having lots of people give lots of ideas and being like... No, no, no, no, I... I feel like people gave me a lot of great answers, and yet it helped me coalesce around the fact that I wanted something different, so, I still don't, I still don't know, it's still years on, it still throws me, I forget about those automated emails that come from me now instead of from that I get that and stuff, but I don't associate it.
And so every once in a while I will get a email from someone in response to them, and depending on the context, all right, back to say, "Oh hey, yeah, but most of the time it's like, it's a throwaway response to a robotic email, but everyone is... well I'll get an In temperate to Hamar. So I was like, "Well I don't have a resume, like Oh yeah, I'm sorry don't the robotic version of me. I wasn't trying to give you a hard time or anything.
It's okay that that's not an actual me up one of these days.
Maybe... maybe we'll still switch it over to a robot friend at some point, but I don't know.
There's probably some value in having a human on the other end even if most of time I don't actually need to eat now, I think so.
Human I-O, I think that's it for me with asked me, I had a couple mental things to mention.
Let's do it. Well, one of them was we hit our one year adversary at Alsop.
Yes, which I mean I guess you and me, the psyche.
I'm on other Omi part owner.
I still think I'm not.
I still think I'm just a part of the site.
Meaning your name is on the documents that are the articles of incorporation.
That's not a shot necessarily.
You know, if I understood the law, so you would have a better answer, so basically you're a person on the documents, but we offer is we never gave stock out, because I don't know how to do that, so I own all the stock 'cause I don't know how to give it to anybody.
Okay, I would love to give you some only, I don't understand it at that.
I prefer not to have... I think it's a sad I would, if I were you, to or not to I own stock in a company that's enough or you get nothing that excellent... yeah, no, I'm happy to be a token member of the board, which I think is where I am at in the documentation there and I'm also perfectly happy to not be at probably what we're gonna wind up doing if everything I hope and dream works out correctly, is my sister and I are probably gonna start like a non-profit in the state of Massachusetts. That's gonna have some nebulous hand wave thing, and we're gonna see if we can take over mall cop, so that Maronite everybody's agreement.
This isn't something I'm gonna take it over, but myself you're not supposed to talk about the plan before you pull it off is it that all the evil overlord operation?
But then it would be one by a nonprofit which will reduce our tax burden which really is the only thing that stands in the way of having this website be amazing forever, you know what I mean?
'cause like taxes are expensive.
And getting a guy that do your taxes is expensive.
So, maybe we can have it on "binondo t but the only reason that it's a year old, matters is that many, many people, there's a huge overlap between Mucho and metal users and many, many people renewed re-up sign on for us, again, chipped in to money and just wanted to say thanks 'cause hey, it's really cool to run a tiny little website that keeps going slowly.
Yeah, yeah, so, it launched today. Thing was something that stark posted in the middle of May in 2017, and I don't think there was like a... Hey, it's a year old.
And so if we had been a little bit more on our communications, we would have told people that the... we're gonna get it with a renewal thing to A... and I just wasn't, I wasn't really, I don't even know where I was, I was way out of town, so... oh, it was our library conference or something.
At any rate, yeah, so... Hey thanks.
And also medical or turning 22 next.
Yeah, which I thought was this year. Because I can't read and never know what time it is.
So, on Cliff and I were like... Yeah, we should totally do something in on clips, like yeah, but I'm gonna be in Canada, and I was like, Alright, fuck it. We won't do anything and then he's like... But it will be in Canton next year. I'm like, "I don't care what you're doing next year.
Oh wait, and I had to email them back and be like, "Oh right, okay, we just totally do something. Then it's next year, right? So I think next year we'll probably do a thing in Massachusetts, like me, Jim other Jim, Jim the... all the gyms yeah, yeah, I have a camp gymnasium.
I'm not sure of tapping on the ice to see if the thing is on which is well on his... on video. 'cause it just sounds like there's actual on the ground with it, but I appreciate like the bit you got it.
So, I am porting some fun shitty things in on a talk. There was the new years resolution check-in, update from is just the other day, like That is right up there with... I broke in terms of fun things posted the Modoc. And it's not even his job, not that, eyebrows, probably wouldn't do it if it weren't her, job too, but it is definitely just I really feel like work to make metal a nice place where people wanna hang out and talk about things.
Yeah, which is a good thing, and I really appreciate that.
Yeah, it's great.
All of my brothers, topics are great and it's fun talking about stuff to fit too. And I also liked you know, that the US resolution checking up that it is for some people, like a good use bad news thread. But I felt like for people who were struggling, there would be people there who are like "Oh you know, sorry, stuff's not going so good. Or how can we help or whatever exactly.
You made three blog posts in January and gave yourself a C minus under blogging resolution is is all around.
I am giving myself an F on blogging as a teen doing a lot of art is you've done a lot at... yeah, I'm giving myself an A plus on art for me in a class.
But then Josh where do you go from there?
Well, I start I establish expectations for myself in the next year. I grade myself Harare because I've set such expectations and then I'm angry myself, for being unfair when all the other kids aren't doing as much art. And why are they still getting As... and then I have a really probate long-term dynamic with reward versus... anyway, I think you're starting a future Josh, for success. I should probably just do that instead.
Oh man, I had to hand in my grades and almost all my students got As except for two students who failed, and they really failed like they stopped going to class or even like they super failed, but I still felt bad... failing them, but then I felt weird that everyone else got an A, too... so, a variance of a I guess a couple of gut be pluses but still the grades range from 88 to 101. SRI. Don't know what that means about my teaching.
I just felt like if they were all gonna get as I would have liked to have just given them all As... and not graded... 36 different projects on that, but I don't know, I think there's something to be said about teaching as primarily a process and an interaction. And at that point, I worrying about the distribution of grades are like... No, I don't know, maybe everything. Literally, everything else that happened in the course of the class, was maybe more important.
Yeah, yeah, I think so, but yeah, still felt weird.
So, set yourself up for more success right next to your two pluses not a thing.
Next year I'm gonna get an S, grade. Which everybody who plays hard, Corvette games, NOS is the actual good grade.
I don't actually know, except what I games. Where you can achieve grades in performance, especially define games in particular tend to, or games from Japanese publishers tend to be like these bad is, Okay, be as good as great means. You actually fucking... the edit and more on a full-on super good job, I have no idea, okay, somebody live into this, please do with hell.
That is, 'cause at enemies opposed about the history of trades in Benevis. We've all agreed that that's somehow his job now.
But anyway, I didn't really mean to spend that long a great... so I just wanted to also say, "I like this thread from violet you about like do you use mediator in Joe jargon at home?
Oh my God, which I don't know.
Or about anything else.
Well, that's the thing, I mean I talk about manifest or a ton like me, and Angela we're just gonna talk about medical for lot 'cause you know, it's my job and I own the company and all this stuff.
It's in part of the life.
Yeah, medical. There's very much what's going on in my day-to-day life pretty much every day, but I don't know that we used many in jokes and maybe just because it's so saturated like at a certain point, I'm not gonna be like... Well, I sure didn't want a D-T-A. that turn, I'm like, Oh his fucking thread like you like there's a certain casual is there, but yeah, but other Permian I mostly use kind of a hypothetical as mediator to work out some of our disputes.
You know where he'll be like... Oh, I want this and I'm like, "Oh I want this. And he's like me, my reasons and I'm like... My reasons and I'm like... Yeah, yeah, your reasons. But if we ask me either anonymously about our names attached to it, you got to admit they would side with me, because your argument is nuts and he'll be like her and I'll be like, "Look you write the question I'll post it anonymously. We agree to do whatever the outcome is.
And that's usually when he realizes he is like, with me, he'll argue with me, but he wouldn't argue with the entire internet worth of people that are also gonna disagree with them.
Yeah, oh there's also... one more thing I should mention, for EDTA is the best title.
What with that we do, it's finished up and there. I just like to post with its Johny wallflower, last month, proposed a best title contest to basically just come up with good titles for your posts. And so we ran that through me. Just a loathing. We "Simard it and talk about it in a talk and then it's due now.
So, Jones A... it just happened, I just... so congratulations man, of twists per "mandal in Casper for 405 super mad Roger accord white to Carl is dissect Mike joy Tico but in a bucket and the gale also the shape of wafer and the shame of reactor.
It is a right.
So yes, I don't Inigo all tuned up backwards on it. Anybody so Roderick, word and fearful symmetry? And Rumple. I just like reading everybody's name.
Yeah, it's fine.
Then you got to mention cortex, because you had some tippy bunch of... and what it is that I get post yeah.
Oh, how did I not mention that?
I don't know, that was really good.
I mean your title is ridiculous, but I think about my title, I wanna say, and I should have tested this to see if I could get away with putting a non-breaking space, characters, but I was worried that entities wouldn't work right in the title for some of the if I really wanted to, there be more spaces on the farther out dashes on the title instead I was like, "Oh but it's just gonna collapse down to a single space, 'cause white space gets treated like that by broadcast.
We talked about last month exactly, so I ended up not fully realizing my vision with that title, and I probably could have tried harder, but I got it and I think it looks good. And after a certain point, really, you gotta move on, right, exactly, but that was a great thread.
And we should have mentioned it in the regular old "methil or watching magnets colliding at a thousand frames. A second is amazing. And it was fun. If it's the same video that I saw, which I assume it is at the very end of it, they have the full speed.
Yeah, and it's a case.
Oh I see, I see how fast that was actually moving right that you're like... Oh, I was actually watching a thing happening thinking it's a thing I Balkan see, and it's super not.
Yep, yeah, no, that's great.
That was a great a... yeah, as in, I probably found in the ultra maybe that's where I saw it, or return it could be a lot of stuff ends up in tabs and then by the time I around to make a post, I've lost track of how it got there, so I should just assume everything is from my other Musume master on the fact that we're kind of a old people. Lerner yeah, yeah, we're not right on the cutting edge, but we get there three days later. Yeah, a quick manifest music minute, 'cause there's nice music and I like it.
The Vice Admiral neuroses posted this wonderful weird little thing called form, if some... that is using "vocaloid which is a vocal synthesizer thing being driven by a drum sequencer with a somewhat stuff.
It's fantastically weird. And this is exactly what you should do if you... one reason is make weird shit like this.
So I enjoyed that a great deal.
There was a very nice sort of time a RIME, and now I had... it's great and posted Nest mess, which she describes as a breezy song about hanging out in LA. And that's exactly what it is. It is very nice, I love it.
Kind of a companies, at least beginning to it.
Yeah, there's something in the drum beat-minded Secretary of it when we were listen to this morning of the drum beat from the start of shine by collective soul even though the rest of the song doesn't really sound like that but that's all.
There's your drum news, also starve posted VAO which is a weird little thing made using a sampler on an op on synthesizer sapling its own built-in FM radio to get little bits of things to turn into a drum track.
It's great, it's super great.
And she led and then... Oh, what did I just click on? I just accidentally clicked on a list of Deep Space Nine episode transcripts that I think I have used in three years, one more just as a Chase or chocolate something called boiler maker and it's fantastic. And Chuck there is your music rising music minute.
And I think that's racially you mentioned I've been paying any close attention to fanfare, the last bit, although we fixed a couple of bugs. So go for Able.
I've been starting a chat with people about movies. I also saw super troupes to which had a very short fan for thread, but it was good 'cause we saw at the driving in Vermont like you should, and the sole thread was good. And I've been following along with the ESL threads until leader-PED up an elementary, which I was kind of that Sherlock home to Lulu.
And what's mutational? I should look and see if anybody posted nailed it. Because, speaking of super divers to one of the guys from Super Trust was on, I think, the last episode of the six-episode run, of nailed it, which is a cooking show based on the concept of care essentially. So this is like a hotel.
Was it Jay or was it one of the ethics?
He was just on Brooklyn Diane, the episode that we saw, it's weeks we go now in real time, but we just saw it in two nights ago and we're like, "Oh my God, a "Aiello the place he actually leaves the set in the middle of this episode because he has to go pick up his kids because nothing happened. And you can tell the people on set, you've really fucking us.
He came back to the end for the judging of the cases.
So anyway, it's a weird dumb mess of a show, but Nicole buyer hosted it and she's hilarious and I should see if it got discussed on fanfare 'cause on the one hand, I don't know why anyone would, but on the other hand, who now is people post all sorts of stuff, a fanfare. So maybe other people also watch that particular genial piece of trash television. So, I should look that up.
There's my van fair news is I have no idea if anybody's posted this stupid show, that I watched, you know you might be pleasantly... yeah, I get a coin, football. It seems like it's entirely possible. Yeah, that's... that, I think that's a podcast, I think.
Great, let "ketch up a little before fourth of July. Because after portal everything gets a little... that's gonna do hectic maybe these two sandwiches, these two podcasts is going for a beginning. This one's a few days into June, maybe to the next one, the last couple days of June of Bolton and Sunil. Be like the meat in a podcast, and now, but then it all just I just jump straight the word sand, which I just said, sandwich.
I think the title of this is just gonna be stand, which is ceramic. He's this old man.
See, okay, I'm Brian to that title. All right, good work, good work all around. Let let's get off this train before it flies, off the court. Oakdale. Sure, to let.
