I feel like this fantastic rendition of the Avengers theme by Mariachi Entertainment System is refutation enough that the films have more soundtrack power than people credit them for. How do you not get chills that you've just hit that "Hero Teamup Moment" at even the opening few bars of Mr. Silvestri's theme here?

There were four pig trucks lined up for cleaning at the truck wash near the slaughterhouse I pass in my morning commute. A reminder it's busy season in the pig murdering business.

It was not a dependency issue of that sort, it was use copy and pastes and I retype, so copy & pasted numbers in some parts of the app were getting saved as strings, so some equations worked (because implicit JS type coercion, boo) and the others didn't because the dependency just ignore strings because WHY WOULD YOU EXPECT STRINGS TO BE NUMBERS?! 😿

Playing that dependency bingo where the CI build version is returning weird results compared to "works on my machine". 🙀🔥🔥🔥

"The President of the University found it easier to ram initiatives through the student legislature than the faculty/board or state legislature, and students are just as good at passive-aggressive protests as the next body, so that's why I was briefly the Vice President of the Department of Dave Matthews Studies."
Is it weird that I think I think this special finally explained to me why I think Ryan Gosling's acting is so uncanny valley weird? Listen to this native Ottawa accent and of course he struggles so much with that goofy American accent he uses in movies 🤣: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fa0sR-I3e8
Okay, serenading Mickey and Minnie to celebrate their love with _Color of the Wind_ is dripping with anti-capitalist subtext, or is that just me?
(Hulu talked me into watching this Mickey's 90th Birthday special, and I can't look away. It is corny and ridiculous, and some of these choices make no sense.)

It's only the 6th of November. It's far too early to be playing Xmas music, you monsters. 😱
I blogged about pirates, because it's been on the mind lately.
Had a dream this morning that I was invited back to help localize in multiple languages a project I had worked on [an amalgam of them], but wasn't even published in English at the time I was working on it. I was excited to see the localization support I included by habit actually put to use, and the project actually go on sale worldwide. Slightly sad that no such thing exists in the waking world.
Reminder: SeaQuest DSV was originally said to be set in 2018 (before hedging to 2032).

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
