This was already my favourite carly rae jepsen song, but this jazz/prog arrangement by Adam Neely really knocks it out of the park.

(-, death, COVID-19) 

The images coming out of India right now scare me to the bone. Mass cremations. Last rites being conducted in PPE. Cities running out of wood to cremate the dead.

The city I live in (Karachi) is very close to Delhi in its population density, cultural attitudes, infrastructural weaknesses, and governmental dysfunction. Watching these videos is like peering into a dystopic alternate dimension. This could be us in a few months.

I’m tired of big tech companies getting bigger and controlling every aspect of their user’s lives.

Why does the company that makes your phone also control your entire relationship to music? Why does that company need to make exclusive TV SHOWS?

Vertical integration run amok.

"In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes", Mr. Warhol you are like little baby with your adorable toy 20th century notion of fame, we all get 48 hours where a billion people love or despise you and tell all their friends about you at once and it will be like doing an arm-long line of coke while shanking yourself in the spine with an epipen while the Sauron's Eye of global celebrity reduces you to a Vice article, a knowyourmeme page and a smoking crater where your identity was.

Fun fact: Chrome OS—which recently surpassed macOS in market share—has never had “icons on the desktop” as a UI paradigm.

In case you somehow think that “desktop icons” are the thing that will make or break an OS.

so if i'm understanding this right, the european footballers started their own instance? and it doesn't federate?

This album makes me remember the afterglow of a my first psychedelic trip. Just calmly taking in the beauty of the world and being happy to exist. ☀️
