@welshpixie oh God I'm gonna run out of popcorn
@mogwai_poet they're made of people
@ekaitz_zarraga oh, I do 👍
@xiroux and the bassist. And the percussionists. Everyone in there is amazing
Me age 24, a moron: "I don't like that flamenco crap. I like things like metal, with nice guitars, and complex rhythmic and harmonic structures and..."
Me age 34: "Yeah, metal is fine, but I like things with nice guitars, and complex rhythmic and harmonic structures... like flamenco"
I've had this video on loop at work for 2 weeks now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYYDdn1rRKs
Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.
"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"because glass is brittle"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
@jplebreton so E and A because of EA, and they're repeated and constantly refined because of genre consolidation and sequels/yearly titles?

this is my bug report 🎶
I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
@xiroux to be fair, except for the rock lifting, I have done the other things in the past 😅
@xiroux hey, I spent last week working with a Paco de Lucía show on loop for the entire week. Because I'm Basque and that's what we... wait
One thing that surprises me is how Spain has many super savory yet simple dishes that haven't become well-known outside its borders.
One such dish is this: eggs, potatoes, Spanish ham strips and small peppers (these ones are Padrón peppers), fried with some garlic in olive oil, add some salt, and you're done. Not exactly healthy, but tasty and nice.
This was our dinner today and I am fuuuuull😊
Sun Sneezes ☀️🤧
@leadore @InvaderXan yes, it happens only to a minority of the population. It's a genetic difference that makes those people sneeze, while others don't.
