oh nice! sweatin up a storm

I too would hate it so I propose the term "dust nerds" for people who wanna stay inside and not sweat because nerds are the opposite of jocks and dust is the domesticated form of dirt.

Yeah! This scans totally with my experience also. But then I also realise I'm not exactly the sort of music enjoyer that they're talking about. I suspect it's a case of the ol' typical mind fallacy.

This is an interesting read. I think I kind of disagree at the part where the author starts discussing how the post-scarcity music world means people listen more broadly and in the background. I find that because there is so much available for practically nothing, I filter through and find a few songs that really connect with me. In the days of the record, the cassette, even to an extent the CD, if you wanted to skip a track on an album you had to put physical work in. Yes you were forced into fewer albums, but you had much less of an ability to curate what you wanted to listen to. Making a playlist of your favourite songs involved buying a blank tape and dubbing them over, getting the perfect amount of silence between each track. Now you can "filter" through albums once and then add the songs you like to a custom playlist.

I really trust your opinion on The Good Cartoons and this means it is all the more frustrating that I have such a backlog off good stuff to watch!!!!

The skeletons have more believable fight choreography than the humans.

Seeing this movie as a kid (or at least this bit of it) is one of the reasons skeletons are one of my favourite creature types in fantasy settings.

the only good thing that I got from my horrible call centre job was a free water bottle at christmas and it genuinely made me start drinking water as my default beverage and saving coca cola for a treat
