I am now fairly certain that Parkaboy is actually a William Gibson analogue for Steve Albini.

I especially love Cayce's soliloquy about imagining the future being a privilege of generations whose "now" represented a much longer period of time.

Society rocking change comes so frequently now that it feels more and more like we're along for the ride, less working to create the future and more being carried by the logical next steps of our current innovations.

re-reading Pattern Recognition, and it is shockingly prescient given that it was written before both Youtube and Smartphones. I'd expect nothing less from Gibson, though.

spotted a 3/4 circle rainbow out the window, and have no particularly good way to take a picture of it.

There are 6,000 people waiting for news today about Magic Leap project funding, and they sent out an email with the subject line "Drum roll, please..." about... D.I.C.E.

Found a place to anonymously upload sound snippets, so here's the only thing I've produced for for the challenge this month that I'm in love with: instaud.io/3iKA

Beautiful, beautiful rainy evening in Honolulu tonight

As someone who's, I mean, really not great about bugs, I'm not sure if seeing 5 rainbows a day is worth the ubiquity of cockroaches here.

Might as well build a portfolio site in Flask while I'm at it and start looking in to web dev jobs.

Looks like I'm going to have to write that article about improved image processing times with Rust anyway, if I want to get a job in tech writing.

What I /want/ is to go back to hacking together installation pieces, but either way, a diversified portfolio won't hurt, right?

I'm pretty sure Tsukuba Circuit is a pretty weird place to be holding a going-away party, funimation.

TFW the fansubbers did a better job researching their work a decade ago.

They've translated "Rallyist" as "Ferrari driver" AGAIN WTF. Almost as bad as "Super Late Breaking" to "Superlative Breaking". C'mon guys, the fansubs are miles better.

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Whiteboxing a little procedural city generator I've been working on with some borrowed textures/sprites.

I'm not sure how you even get "Ferrari racer" from this sentence, they literally say "Rallyist" in English.

Also, Funimation's subs have some issues (I'm watching it on their channel on Youtube). The guy is a rally driver, not a Ferrari driver.

Kyoko is my favorite character in Initial D. A black FD is the dream

Wangan Midnight (spoilers) is so deeply critical of its own subject matter. Basically everyone involved, protagonist and antagonist alike, ends up either destitute, completely alone after alienating everyone who cares about them, or both.

Blackbird and Akio are so thoroughly one dimensional that they aren't /bothered/ by the fact that all they have is their own casual rivalry, so maybe the watcher won't notice that they're the last relics of a bygone era of tuner culture. It's all pretty bleak.
