how i write songs: at random intervals, my teeth retract and a cd pops out of my mouth with a fully formed song on it, which i then learn to play

Pretty much how it goes for me too. Sometimes it's a line or two of a lyric.

I like the idea of the IRT but how well does it actually work, especially in adverse conditions like bad weather.

I love these weird ceramic creations that Jon Sung has on his Etsy page. The brightly colored tardigrades and handmade Star Trek sculptures are cute, but I really love his "Fruit friend" characters, which are ceramic figures you can store a piece of fruit on. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ForecastFossil?ref=butts

They look good and useful but I wonder how well the new app will actually work. As a long-time dev, I always view new versions with suspicion until I have a chance to verify them. (I've made a mess more than once lol)

I've seen it twice in IMAX, it looks amazing and earplugs are probably a good idea. I wouldn't want to be in the 3rd row, that's a bit close for me.

In Portland? Maybe I could visit sometime. The nerd-run Oly Film Society has a lovely old theater but doesn't have advanced equipment.

kids, I'm doing Ride London again this year, raising money for the brilliant Bike Project, who do up bikes and give them, along with training and support, to refugees and asylum seekers. I'm WAY out of shape, having had my slowest start to the year cycling since before COVID. Here's the link to sponsor me, if you'd like to help support them and motivate me :) xxx

Waffle House reportedly deducts $3 from workers’ pay for each on-shift meal, even if they don't eat it.

The policy could cost all Waffle House workers ~$30M per year.

This is a company that already pays some workers as little as $2.90/hr before tips.

Textbook corporate greed.

i’m no newly minted bridge expert or what have you, but it strikes me as negligent not to have barriers or bollards before the key bridge’s pylons, no? not sure they would help much though, given the mass of the cargo ships going through there

godzero,
@godzero@sfba.social avatar

@exchgr
I was astonished at the way it just disintegrated in a few seconds. I have no idea how the bridge (or any bridge) was built so I don't know what tensions and dependencies were at play to cause this UDE. It's fortunate that so few people were on it at the time.

What medium? I have an old vinyl record and it sounds amazing on a good system. Of course, the songs, musicians, and production are all excellent and that's what really makes it a great album.

I like nearly everything I've heard by Daniel Lanois, he's a terrific musician and producer with some unusual approaches that benefit the project.

Since a lot of folks don't really dig into profiles and pinned posts, and anonymous accounts understandably are viewed with suspicion by some, now and then I like to remind the TL that this account is just pseudonymous and I'm a real human named Tyler in Portland Oregon. The MrC persona is one I've had across several platforms for 15 years and keeping it is a matter of being easy to find. Plus it's a distinctly non work oriented & less political subpersonality. I'm not here to talk shop much.

Hey Tyler... I thought the hat said "a bitter world is possible" and then I thought "really? Oh no!"
