I think one of the reasons that music feels like it's stagnating with innnovation is there's no major technical breakthroughs that have happened in the past 10 years.

1960s: Reel-to-reel tapes and tape splicing. Introduction of Synthesizer.
1970s: Synthesizers become mainstream, Hammond Organ, Mellotron.
1980s: Computer-based workstations (Fairlight CM-1), MIDI
1990s: Samplers become cheaper, computer workstations become cheaper.
2000s - 2020s: Refinement on the above

So, did Object Oriented programming solve all of our problems yet?

Now if they could remove the Windows from the Windows Subsystem for Linux..

hey everyone, my PyCon 2020 tutorial session is now online: and contains, well, pretty much everything I know about phonetics, machine learning and meter/rhyme/sound symbolism in poetry. tutorial code and notebooks here:

TFW you still see the good in technology, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

We've been watching way too much Curse of Oak Island,.

If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."

What should I focus on tomorrow for learning (and possibly next month for a deeper dive)?

The days shall now be known as Pre-Monday, Shitty Sunday, Shitty Wednesday, Wednesday, Shitty Friday, Shitty Saturday, and Saturday.

I'm going to create a storage unit place called "Pocket Universe", but I'll need to sort out a few problems first.

uber, grubhub, doordash, food 

TFW you realize that a function has a spelling mistake. In this case it was "normalize" spelled as "normallize".

Lord, there are no opinions more dividing than the best live album of the 1970s.

Why can't you all plainly see that it's Bob Seger's "Live Bullet" with Procol Harum's "Live in Concert w/ the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra".

Frampton Comes Alive? He's sleeping compared to those albums.

Live at Leeds? Asleep in the weeds.

Live at Budokon? Barely alive in Detroit.

Stop being wrong and just accept the truth.

Who decided to call them "Brads" and not "y'know, those little things with the head on them and the two flanges that you use to attach things together"?
