Your pointless thoughts & observations


Recommended Posts

Can't help but reflect upon how a political pandemic got defeated by a biological one, at least in one country. Regardless though the cost of human life can't be trivialized.

I still don't know the story behind the burger reaction and i feel extremely left out... 

I'm awoken from sleep by a message telling me trump's got the covid. Get more celebratory messages from friends, wake up, make myself a nice cup of espresso, go to my home office spot and I'm greeted

I've noticed a pattern of emoticon solidarity in reply reactions.  1 burger tends to lead to multiple burgers, 1 Farnsworth tends to lead to multiple Farnsworths, and so on, and so on.  Also popular i

So I started following a DJ on Twitch (trying to show support for one of my favorite local venues). All of their friends are now showing up on the home page as recommendations. They are all nearly identical in appearance and music selection. In a way, it's like looking at group pictures of generic anime characters. Each DJ has its particular thing going on but they're all oddly homogeneous.

1. The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.5 B years - same as the officially determined age of Earth. Coincidence?

2. The Doge meme from 2013 which would later evolve into swole doggo in 2020 was derived from the real life shiba inu Kabosu. Yep, that's the name of the iconic shibe we've seen in countless meme copypastas. I think she was 8 years old back in 2013, so idk if she's still alive today...

my turntable is buggered. only solution i could find to the grinding noise is to take out the slider tray that changes speed.

god knows how i managed to mess this up, but the result is that all of my records are now playing backwards. i've got some new records coming soon, and my copy of Key Nell just arrived so i'm kinda pissed that one's backwards. BUT my first instinct is to get out my Geogaddi reissue and listen to all the backmasky goodness while i still can! 😎

honestly it doesn't even mater with idm...

it's funny - that's exactly what i've just been implying, except that i've just played most of Geodaddi backwards right here, in real life. i admit it doesn't translate well to other records like Key Nell (big beats w/trailing reverb) but i know that because i've been doing it, not because it took me three seconds to make a post like this.

looking into getting it repaired soon to play Bowie's Let's Dance - which definitely does need to be played forwards.

Where'd you pick up key nell from? That's such a great record...

This coronavirus thing seems to be a bit serious now. Maybe we should lay off the memes. How good is the US economy though? Trump will definitely be re-elected at this rate; i'm not sure what could be his undoing.

The demon pain sound in classic Doom always sounded stupid and janky to me. Always sounded like "Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul!"

Just watched the Ripper on Netflix. Limited series about the Yorkshire Ripper. They should add to the title so it’s called “The Ripper and also all the cops directing this investigation are fucking morons”

Jesus how frustrating and ya know that shit happens the world over for all time.

Does anyone who does a lot of excersize have a really reduced ability to sleep?

 

I've been working as a cycle courier to tide myself over during the pandemic as my chef job is gone temporarily, so I've been doing around 28 hours cycling a week. I feel great, im on the brink of seeing abs for the first time in my life. I get to sleep like a dream at 1am every night like clockwork but I just wake up after 5 hours and cannot get to sleep again every single night. I don't feel especially tired but im acquiring monster bags under my eyes.

There's an older man on tik tok that djs sitting down. Everytime he live streams I go into his chat and yell: " HEY IT'S THE SITTING DJ!". The guy looks ridiculous barely able to reach his turntables and probably would do a much better job standing.
