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.
gab blocker, self-promo
new gab instance popped up, time to shill for my project!
this script automagically pulls new gab instances as they pop up on fediverse.network (similar to how @gabwatch does) and instance blocks them for you!
if you're an admin and have access to the server your mastodon instance is running on, you can run it there to automatically block all gab sites for your entire instance!
if you're a user and dont mind getting your hands dirty with using ruby and installing some dependencies, it'll block all known gab instances for you at the user level!
i tried to make the readme very approachable and easy to understand, but if you have any questions feel free to @ me here.
thanks for reading, and stay safe friends ❤️❤️

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.
discussion about el paso shooting
The El Paso shooter explicitly believed that more immigration would lead to a blue Texas that, again in his explicit view, would represent a "coup" against Trump. He believed in terrorizing the immigrant population, and in ethnostates.
These things matter when we try to talk about preventing similar atrocities. White supremacy is killing us.
"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.
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 also to Ann and Kernal for going with me to Home Depot and fixing the shower head, dripping faucet, and leaking drain!
