"In the KonMari Method™, your feelings are the standard for decision making – specifically, knowing what sparks joy. To determine this when tidying, the key is to pick up each object one at a time, and ask yourself quietly, “Does this spark joy?” Pay attention to how your body responds. ...

Through the process of selecting only those things that inspire joy, you can identify precisely what you love – and what you need."

This no longer sparks joy.

If you don't have a MWL shrine (along with other quality books that you might own) then I can't help you.

(Also, if you don't have MWL's latest book "Only Footnotes" then my only recommendation is to re-evaluate your life's choices and pick up this book. (1))

Dear Amazon,

I'm not saying that it's not possible for Venetian Snares fans to also be huge Bob Dylan Fans, but I think you're overstating the connection.

(Note: yes, yes, Amazon bad. I'll thank you in advance for keeping this little detail to yourself).

Curious what Google is finding dangerous in the Pandas documentation site.

(Note: folks who recommend me another browser agree to one year of doing my housework to my exacting standards. No, I'm not joking).

Sometimes you're Mr. Peabody and sometimes your his boy Sherman.

Not going to year shame but if the tagging in Musicbrainz is to be believed this tear was a really potent year.

(Many albums from this particular year; too many to mention. Also a lot of classical albums in there)

Google Play Music offers a takeout option for albums that you have purchased (good)

Realizing that I bought a handful of albums on there. Most of the tracks there were samplers that I received through different promotions.

Here's an image of the albums that were part of the take-out (note: some duplicates that I later picked up on CD are removed)
