Kid majoring in videography was smart and asked photographer dad for a lighting kit. I saved a few bucks because there were my original stands I never use.

If you haven't seen The Magic Christian I highly recommend it. Here is the rather famous actor Lawrence Harvey doing Hamlets soliloquy

Yeah, I saw that NatGeo movie. At least I think it was NatGeo....and not some 50's space drama

Well, this sucks.

It still turns on but the screen is barely holding on.

Couple dabs of RTV108 and hold it in place overnight is what I might do. Or ubreakifix might be better ;)

@atomicpoet
If it's RTV it's a nonconductive silicone adhesive. So it's a hair elastic, but damn handy for keeping things in places.

If.you search for "dum olav" you get dum aloo. Therefore I'm a potato.

(Dum aloo is a kashmiri curried baby potato dish)

If the gods exist, it's mighty presumptuous to think they have our best interests at heart, or even think about us at all.

@RickiTarr

Well, the universe came from somewhere, consciousness came from somewhere, and eventually the universe fades into an even temperature a few degrees above absolute zero. What happens to us specifically is anyone's guess.

So like whatever gives you peace. That should be your "religion"

I think it's pamu to say "hey, this is what works for me" so long as it isn't proselytizing or shaming others. The exception being hate. I have no time for hate.

I love making my weekly Zoom call w/my therapist and there's a mandatory update which requires uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

Whelp, my psychiatrist opted to not get back to me today. Barring anything tomorrow he gets an email that I'm quitting the buspar on Wednesday. Things are not good.

It is what it is. What I really want is a conversation on the sheer number of pills I'm taking. It's on the edge of too many.

Our nation's regulatory agencies are on the "wait until it's a meme" schedule.

McDonald's broken ice cream machines draw federal scrutiny https://qz.com/mcdonalds-broken-ice-cream-machines-federal-regulators-1851339089

IDK if it's a tradeoff or not, but McD knows the status of every ice cream machine, updated on the 1/2 hour.

Someone found the API and it's presented as a map here: https://mcbroken.com

I'm sooo tired of taking pills. I know I can't not but maybe it's worth the risk to take fewer.

@anathema_device
Don't plan to but even w/ meds I've been in hospital twice this year. One added a bad med, the other a decent med. But dinner is still 8 pills of 4 meds, and breakfast is 5-6 pills of 4 meds.

It gets old, not helped by ads for meds that specifically treat bipolar I/II with mixed episodes.

Y'all I just made myself feel so old, hubs looked up top 100 music from 2001, 2011, 2021, and today and the amount of music I could recognize decreased by significantly. I recognized probably 70% of 2001 and decreasing as I went on. BUT I blame the internet, I can listen to exactly the kind of music I want with no dependence on the radio, but also I'm old!

@RickiTarr they played Crazy Train on the overhead at the grocery not that long ago. Yesterday was Bel Biv Devoe

Yeah, Ozzy Osbourne at the grocery store. I'm that many years old.

By the way, do you have a personal website and does it have a home page? (I’m pretty sure it does… 😁)

I would love to know: what’s on your “home” and why?

Feel free to share a link, of course. 🤗 As always, I’m also asking on behalf of my newsletter subscribers.
