I find it weird that newspapers characterize students as being “pro-Palestinian” as opposed to anti whatever you call this.

Zooropa was a good album and I will fight anyone who says different.

Record Store Day just doesn’t work for me. I drove for an hour to a record store, and the one thing I wanted from RSD was gone.

I’m not sure what creating artificial scarcity really achieves, especially if it ends up in frustration and puts me off visiting the store in person.

I’ll wait until Monday and see if any of the independent British stores with online presences have copies left over.

I have a lot more to say, but I'll hold it for now and simply wonder aloud...

Which BigTech clouds are the "Lavender" & "Where's Daddy?" AI systems running on? What APIs are they using? Which libraries are they calling?

What work did my former colleagues, did I, did *you* contribute to that may now be enabling this automated slaughter?

(Also, content warning. This is some of the sickest shit I've ever read.)

@eternalstorms Hey Matthias! It's nice to find you over here!

My Macs had been slow picking up the update to ScreenFloat 2 and I've been really appreciating it, so I wanted to say thanks again. It's genuinely one of my essential Mac apps, and working on a Mac without it is not fun!

This new trend of podcasts posting video clips reinforces for me that Americans talk too slowly and is going to be a problem. At least when I have them trapped in my podcast app I can make them speak at normal speed, but when they escape to video mediums it’s so much harder to bend them to my will.
