I think I could watch How It's Made non-stop, for days
For the past few days I've been listening to american folk music as background noise while I work, and I've been using youtube, which I normally don't do. My strategy is to find something interesting that I like and then to let the autoplay algorithm decide what's next.
I've done this probably 15 times in the past few days, and no matter what the seed is, it always seems to take less than an hour to devolve into an endless loop of Mandolin Orange.
I don't necessarily dislike the band, but why?
What a great video, even for a dummy like me. And to think that the J58 was designed in the early 60's!
I love this rendition of the song; somehow it just seems awfully human.
Bowie was such a great performer and I wish I could have seen something like this live.
I really want to like org-mode; I just kinda don't.
I know people who swear by it as a simplistic replacement for all the other tooling in your life, and I already have a running TODO list and personal wiki and similar crap, but honestly I don't ever see myself replacing any of that with something worse just because I can feel good about interacting with it inside of emacs.
So I have two options for #coffee this morning: old reliable, and something that apparently wants me dead.
This stuff better turn me into an astronaut or something...
planning on doing the 2.7 update next weekend so I can play with all these new toys I keep hearing about

I just wish I had more excuses to write (really anything) with LaTeX
Somebody has animated sheet music of John Coltrane's saxophone, holy shit. Actually a little dizzying to watch, but so much fun too.
generally tooting about: projects/hobbies, software stuff, boston, running, motorcycles, and pictures of my mediocre cooking.
small, relaxed instance for friends
