Let's give a big penguicon.social welcome to @KUdeala !

Finally, after 50 years, fans will learn whatever happened to Tuesday and So Slow, with a film adaptation of "Brown Eyed Girl". The backstory picks up in an old mine with a transistor radio. There are already several fan theories on the wiki. They just wrapped production on the making-of, in which they reveal lost audio which the songwriter left on his producer's answering machine. Wednesdays on the CW.

I hope this turns out to be nothing, but I'm grateful my employer has a doctor's office on site. They accepted me as a walk-in for a problem with my left eye. The doctor set up an appointment at Henry Ford hospital which I'm going to now. An emergency opthalmologist will either send me the surgery today or give me peace of mind.

Alright, I need something to keep my brain fresh, so time for some learning.

What resources have you used to learn Python? My experience with programming is pretty minimal; I've dinked with C, C++ and Matlab, but have mostly learned how to fix This Problem Right Here instead how to start from scratch to solve many problems.

Boosts welcome, a moderate amount of trying to convince an engineer that they should learn a different language is also allowed.

By the way, we're now running Mastodon 2.9.3.

"Celebration" is the spiritual successor of those songs, modernized for the attitude of the internet era. The connection will become clear to you if you listen to "Celebration" after watching the Portlandia sketch "Change The World One Party At A Time", skewering the tendency for youth activism to take the form of a dance rave in which to get really f****d up.

"I Should Be Allowed To Think" switched to the perspective of a powerless college-aged revolutionary, referencing "Howl" by Allen Ginsburg, a poem from 1956, and gluing posters to telephone poles.

The narrator character of most They Might Be Giants songs sees the topic of the song through a funhouse mirror. The topic of changing the world is no exception. "Purple Toupee" portrayed an out-of-touch older man who wants to be seen as influential on the world stage, but barely understands events of the mid-twentieth century.

@sashakovich Would you be available to visit the house on Sunday and maybe help set up some shelves, unbox things, and so forth?

Eight people showed up to help with the move. There were many obstacles, but we overcame them. We even moved the pool table to the garage. Everything got moved yesterday.

Thanks very much to Neight Belarpin, @kernelsnarky, @anndroid, Jon Arnold, Alicia Arnold, Todd Stewart, Jan Henry, and Dave Henry!

Thanks also to Ann and Kernal for going with me to Home Depot and fixing the shower head, dripping faucet, and leaking drain!
