Monday at 7pm America/Chicago, Rough House Theater’s quarterly Nasty, Brutish, and Short will be live streamed. Watch, watch, watch!

🎭 Cabinet of Curiosity’s “The Farewell Fables” got live streamed from Links Hall earlier this evening.

Go watch some puppets, a violin being played in a very non-traditional manner, some retiring gods, “the milk of vegans”, and a toiletbike. www.cocechicago.com/now-playi…

Reading all the depressing stuff going on, but then iTunes shuffled to Kate Bush’s “The Big Sky” and things got brighter. 🎵

Impressive turnout for early voting for the Illinois primary on a Sunday afternoon.

Watched The Last Starfighter (1984) for the first time today. Weird waiting so long to see a hit movie from when I was in high school.

Listening to Mike Duncan talk on this week’s Revolutions episode about Russian censors and just got this picture in my head of a book of cute cat pictures, with cutesy, yet subversive, text like naming a kitten Toussaint Louverture.

Watching “I, Claudius” again due to I, Podius.

Just watched Livia’s “pep talk” to the gladiators. I want to know how she learned all the tricks they attempted.

What I really miss from Day One v1 is the ability to edit complete entries in Vim. There is no way to get at every aspect of an entry now.

The weirdest thing about using Gnome 3 is how windows slowly sink until their bottom edges hit the bottom of the screen when you switch virtual desktops.

Using words from Low Definition to generate test data. My current fake user is “Ballhooter Lakenvelder”.

Don’t listen to podcasts on Spotify: techcrunch.com/2020/01/0…

Hope you are enjoying the Saturnalia revels.

Just removed all my space movie filters.

If you’re watching The Mandalorian, you might want to give A Complicated Profession a listen. 🎙

Saved up this week’s Hello Internet episode for the best listening venue for any episode of the show: an airplane.

It’s weird that POSIX semaphores allow you to query the current value (sem_getvalue(3)), but provide no way to query the maximum value.

*gobble* I *gobble* 💙 *gobble* Low Definition *gobble* so *gobble* much *gobble*.

Leftovers

Michael: “What are we eating?”

Mom: “Leftovers, honey.”

Michael: “Leftovers from what?”

Mom: (laughs) “From the refrigerator!”

Michael: “We’ve had leftovers every day since we moved here. I’d like to know what they were before they were leftovers.”

Dad: “Well, before that, they were leftovers-to-be.”

Parents (1989) 🎥

I would love a podcast episode of Mike Duncan and Ben Thompson discussing stratechery.com/2019/the-…

Noise Unit’s “Drill”, most especially “Miracle”, still makes me so, so happy ♬

I’m hoping someone digitizes this live music archive: interactive.wbez.org/curiousci… 🎙️ 🎵

Declaring bankruptcy on @viticci ‘s iOS 12 review.

Have been really enjoying Roomful of Teeth’s first album this past week. 🎵
