Historical revisionism as real-person fanfiction
Dual to my habit of saying "speaking of" and then changing the subject, I just recalled that I also have a habit of saying "in unrelated news" and then continuing on the same topic as before but pretending that it's different.
In unrelated news I am probably somewhat of a frustrating conversationalist.
It seems that I can occasionally realize that I am dreaming and attempt to wake up. I'm not sure of the exact causality chain, but around the time I realize that I'm dreaming, the dream completely loses all coherence and starts rapidly flickering through various bits of disjointed, random nonsense. Images don't load fully, my field of vision becomes mostly empty except for whatever the momentary object-of-focus is, the sound vanishes. It basically all glitches out until I manage to wake up.
Asian pickled vegetables are so much more interesting than the brined cucumbers usually served here in the US. This is probably because there are other flavoring ingredients used than just brine, and also because the vegetables used are more interesting than cucumbers.
I could probably eat a pound of gari and other than the probable stomach ulcer that would result I would have no regrets.
My local (meaning my hour-away) Asian market sells gari in restaurant-sized bags which I tend to go through uncomfortably fast. It is excellent for digestion, though!
And now the "pop" song's chorus is in A Dorian, for some bizarre reason. I should just stop working on this one; the entire reason I wanted to make a pop song was to figure out how pop fills sonic space, but since I don't listen to pop all I'm learning is my own preconceptions.
What superpowers/backstory would be required to end up with the moniker "Raincheck"?
TIL that my computer didn't come with Minesweeper pre-installed.
All the fun of implementing a progress bar from scratch in Bash after having "learned" the language a week ago.
One problem with my decision to toss insects out the window instead of killing them is that it sometimes rains and I don't want to open the window, but also there are insects.
I wonder if I wouldn't have come to despise Western music theory so much if I had kept up with the piano lessons.
Probably independent of the "the planet is healing" nonsense since they never seemed to care before, I saw one of the neighborhood bunnies today, for the first time in quite a while. It probably helped that it was like, shortly after midnight, and also that it's starting to warm up.
A facility that offers two services: marriage counselling and paintball. Well, one service, really.
Following up on the bit about Hot Pie in GoT Modern AUs, I'd forgotten that's there's a character whose name appears to just be "Husband". Like, Martin named several Tully lords after Muppets, but this guy, who, admittedly, didn't have nearly as big a role as Hot Pie, doesn't even warrant that much.
So it turns out that while I like a lot of pop music aesthetics, I find any individual pop song to be really boring if I get more than about two or three seconds of it. All I want is the texture, and you can get that almost instantaneously. Which is why I actually like (large time period)-of-pop music mashups, but usually only once.
Also it seems that I tend to think that pop songs are older than they actually are, probably because my mental model for how they get spread through the cultural milieu is off. Basically I have no idea how Top 40 actually works.
someBODY once told me
you had a boyfriend
One benefit that acoustic guitars generally have over electric ones is that you can make videos from inside the sound hole. I suppose you could build a camera into the body of an electric guitar, but that would require pre-planning, whereas these days you can just buy a pretty cheap camera that will fit inside an acoustic.
