Day 4 of workout goes like this.
Before: today I feel there are more muscles than the ones needed to move eyes and hands, nice!
After: nameless and invisible things from eons past have awakened and are crawling all over and inside my powerless body.
Today in "I learn more from my failures": let's cut my own hair alone!
I'm pretty used to it, I've done this for years, but with just a single razor guard. I decided, after a few tutorials, to use two different guards in order to keep longer hair on top, for a hypothetically fancier result.
One hour and all five razor guards later, I now have Lorn's haircut. It's time to finally make good music, I guess.
Today I decided to start working out because I remembered I have a body, and having a healthy body is apparently important to keep one’s mind functioning.
So I went to darebee.com and picked up the easiest possible program, "Foundation Light." Now I feel awesome. Slightly sore muscles give wonderful sensations.
The first thing that popped into my mind is "Working out is honoring the universe." It’s also time to resume meditation, I guess.
The US election news has largely overshadowed a seismic moment in global finance: Ant, a fintech company that spun out of Alibaba/Alipay, was scheduled to have the world's largest IPO, topping even Aramco, the Saudi sovereign wealth fund.
Then Chinese regulators canceled it.
As Yves Smith writes in her excellent Naked Capitalism breakdown, the consensus narrative on this is capricious Chinese regulators changed their minds and jerked the rug out from under Ali's billionaire owner Jack Ma.
I’ve just received Konstantinos’ Virtual Cities. I worked a bit with him on a couple of unpublished projects a few years ago, and it feels fantastic to finally see his book come to fruition. It looks gorgeous.
I can’t help but wonder how real these video game cities can be in mind, compared to the ones that actually exist but that I will never visit.

Computers ate my soul.
