Watching the music video for @JanelleMonae's new song "Make Me Feel" is an entirely different experience to listening to the song without visuals. Do both <3

One of my sisters wrote a BuzzFeed post about how hard it is to live with a couple. I find it very important to note that I am only one half of one of the two couples she has lived with, so there's only a 25% chance that any of her post is about me.

I think someone on the internet just asked me to stop arguing with them.

Do they not understand what the internet is for?

"I'm going to simplify our sound system!"

"So we'll have fewer remotes?"


"So we'll have the same number of remotes?"

On this day in 1812, New Madrid, Missouri was destroyed by an earthquake with a 7.5 magnitude and aftershocks hitting 7.0. This was the *third* in a series of earthquakes over a few months, which resulted in soil liquefaction, the creation of new lakes, and, for a bit, the Mississippi flowing backwards. The New Madrid fault line is still active.

incredibly bad investing advice 

Today in late-stage capitalism: I saw that a financial reporter is working on an article about "spicing up" your retirement planning. Look, I do not want financial advice that leads to excitement (or more likely, terror). Capitalism already has that part covered on its own.

@phildini hey are you putting in any Pycon talks about Mastodon?

Literally pushed @swenson out the door this morning. Time off is all well and good, but I would like to get back into a routine NOW.

I already have 24 tech / tech adjacent conferences on my calendar for 2018 JUST IN PORTLAND OR.

OH: "But I really want to take 'Robert's Rules of Order' to the orgy!

I guess today is going to be about pulling all the Nymwars and other real names fights material, and then rewriting them to discuss OkCupid. Gross.
