Comedy is a distortion of what is happening, and there will always be something happening.

GitHub Codespaces looks amazing. Will need to try it, but at least for the shameful JS and Python hacks I do, more than enough.

Went to fill up tank and buy some pharmacy stuff next to the old office. Wanted some geographical familiarity even among standardized stores. It was comforting.

I think he has a small crush, but he also really likes the songs. Enjoying discovering music with him.

Flatbread/Arepa was added to Emoji 13.0 in 2020. I really thought that we would celebrate this alongside a free Venezuela when this got started last year. Sigh. Still, I’ll take it!

Happy new year. So much to be grateful for. Last week of December arrived too quickly with lots of family around, so didn’t get a chance to look back at 2019 or ahead at 2020. Giving myself a few days extension to think about this things.

Speaking of gifts, here’s what Ana and Santa got me for Xmas:

Back to work and trying out my new Palmpress Brewer. Still need to dial-it-in, but not a bad first pass.

Brent DiCrescenzo’s original Kid A review on pitchfork.com:

This is an emotional, psychological experience. Kid A sounds like a clouded brain trying to recall an alien abduction. It’s the sound of a band, and its leader, losing faith in themselves, destroying themselves, and subsequently rebuilding a perfect entity. In other words, Radiohead hated being Radiohead, but ended up with the most ideal, natural Radiohead record yet.

Some things are not always true. Some people are more in-tune with what will become truth. Time is the only tool that separate the fakes from those with a gifted intuition.
