    Kate Tempest's Let Them Eat Chaos is the best concept album I've ever heard, and one of my favorite albums in general. The album follows seven people who all live on the same street. The lyrics are just perfect.

    A sample section of one track:

    Tunnel Vision

    She's screaming, she's screaming
    The drones turned her beautiful boy into a pile of bones
    No body to bury, nobody is home
    Running from war, the boat's full, the boat's sinking a mile off shore
    No beds in the hospitals, our minds are against us
    Imagine your daughter was gunned down defenceless on her way to school
    There'd be uproar
    But she's collateral damage, it doesn't matter
    Now if our kids are fine, that's enough for us
    You can't love into a vacuum, there's got to be a limit
    Welcome to the biggest crime that's ever been committed
    You think you and I are different kinds, you're caught up in specifics
    You and I apart are easier to limit
    The illusion's so complete it's impossible to bring it into focus
    Cinematic stock footage, you think people are locusts
    Uniform men keep unleashing explosives

    In the audiobooks, the narrator (Rob Inglis) sings all of the songs . . . and I still skip most of them.

    But should it be something that immediately disqualifies someone? No, I don't believe that's fair.

    He's not immediately disqualified though. Bernie is still allowed to run, and if he wins the election, he will be president. There is no rule stopping him.

    However, statistically speaking, Bernie is more likely to be dead in four years than alive. And being dead will severely hinder his ability to lead the country.

    I'm not sure the term "ageism" applies in this case. Bernie is applying for arguably the most-important job in the country, and it's a stressful job that he's expected to carry out for at least four years—and potentially eight years.

    Bernie is 78 years old, which is also the average life expectancy in the US. He's also five years older than the oldest president ever elected, and that was Reagan running for his second term. We've never had a 78-year-old president, and that will be Bernie's age his first day in office.

    The way I see it, Bernie's age and health are perfectly valid concerns.

    The Rose of the World by William Butler Yeats

    The Rose of the World
    by William Butler Yeats

    Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?
    For these red lips with all their mournful pride,
    Mournful that no new wonder may betide,
    Troy passed away in one high funeral gleam,
    And Usna’s children died.
    We and the laboring world are passing by:—
    Amid men’s souls that day by day gives place,
    More fleeting than the sea’s foam-fickle face,
    Under the passing stars, foam of the sky,
    Lives on this lonely face.
    Bow down, archangels, in your dim abode:
    Before ye were or any hearts to beat,
    Weary and kind one stood beside His seat;
    He made the world, to be a grassy road
    Before her wandering feet.

    A lot of the fun died for me when actual GIF files were replaced by muted videos.

    These days, everyone posts webm/HTML5 videos without sound, and there's no challenge to it. Trying to make 256 colors look good under 5 MB (or even 2 MB in the early days) was the best part. It was that challenge that kept things interesting.

    Giving yourself all the colors in the world and unlimited file size just kills creativity.
