Today’s small triumph was remembering why and how to do a MySQL left join on the first attempt.

I just stumbled upon Folkways Recordings, a nonprofit record label of the Smithsonian Institution "dedicated to supporting cultural diversity and increased understanding among peoples through the documentation, preservation, and dissemination of sound".

Lots of amazing folk music from around the world.


AOC’s district going pretty hard for Eric Adams proves something I’ve asserted for a long time: the left-right political spectrum is fake bullshit for nerds and it does very little to explain how non-politics people think about politics.

kids today will never understand the old world dying and the new world struggling to be born, being born into the time of monsters

baby toys are like 'encourages learning!' (yells "triangle" at your kid while lights flash)

I read that Roger Ebert called Dirty Harry fascist and gave it 3/5 stars. I watched it and basically agree.

Pretty convinced that any intense opinions about the Oxford comma is just your classism showing.

I think people underestimate the power of internationalism. Whatever your opinions, the ussr and other socialist movements/countries provided a force to counter the American government. The red nemesis played a big part in the passing of laws that both increased material benefits and civil rights here. Just contrast the (still too tepid) New Deal/Great Society era to that after the fall of the Soviets.

**Congress Introduces a Bill That Would Ban Facial Recognition Indefinitely**
