My mechanic, who does not believe in COVID-19 and does not wear a mask, is currently coughing his lungs out in his office. Lovely.

This is perhaps the worst headache of my life.

One of these days I'm going to write a paper about modernism's relationship to UNIX philosophy and also to aesthetic design philosophy.

My wife took this picture of me and my dog and I really like it.

Las Vegas is overrated. It's a big turd in the middle of the desert.

It really is a shame that so many incredibly talented musicians are such unrepentant assholes.
