    Apparently this compilation has been taken down, but the artist is dropping a preview for the next 24 hours or so at this link. Ironically there is an NFT of the song available, but proceeds go to the Center or Reproductive Rights, and streaming is free.

    Medical advances in technology post RNA vaccines are going to be something to behold. Be it nanobots, printed organs on demand, or better management of chronic issues, anything that improve lives at scale is a win in my book.

    I liked it. Probably going to re-up on a free trial to check out the rest of the season when I have a minute. Theme was pretty good, and Pike wrestling with what he knows is going to happen to him would be an interesting thing to hang in the background for the rest of the season. Half expected the civil war to end by the two factions putting on a unified front against the Federation, but maybe I'm out of practice with the whole Star Trek thing.

  4. Comment on Dracula Daily in ~books

    Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an epistolary novel - it’s made up of letters, diaries, telegrams, newspaper clippings - and every part of it has a date. The whole story happens between May 3 and November 10. So: Dracula Daily will post a newsletter each day that something happens to the characters, in the same timeline that it happens to them.

    Now you can read the book via email, in small digestible chunks - as it happens to the characters.

    Point that it would be in the in the financial interest of both parties to keep Roe v. Wade as tenuous precedent so they could both fundraise the hell out of it without that cash flow drying up,...

    Point that it would be in the in the financial interest of both parties to keep Roe v. Wade as tenuous precedent so they could both fundraise the hell out of it without that cash flow drying up, but if certain justices have been on a lifelong mission to remove Roe and there's enough of them to throw their weight around, then PR, decorum and strategy doesn't really matter compared to the urge to pick at a fifty year old scab.

    Welp, the conservative justices have clearly got the petal to the metal on this one. Midterms just got a lot more heated, and the Democrats better get together on messaging and lock arms right quick if they want to be seen as anything other than enablers.

    If you have to have a client, your best bet would be Fritter on Android, it's bar none one of the better clients I've used, and it doesn't even need an account to browse or build a feed.

    The artist usually leans more into Metal covers, so it might have been a conscious decision. Was missing that solo though.

    This was my original TiMaSoMo back in November, but with this commit and the latest Canary, Magisk now supports full root on the Oculus Go. I have no idea what to do with it now, and it takes some finagling to give su permissions in a VR UI, but it is done now, and I can rest.
