i've tried so many times to use jq and it has never been faster for me than writing the equivalent json.parse/filter, i don't know what it is about that syntax that just does not click

i feel like i've posted this before, but i always thought this song (The Finest by SOS Band) said "five star heaven" and not "finest i've ever" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-tdCCcfziI (criminally, for a song that seemed to be perpetually playing in the background as a kid, unavailable to buy)

it’s amazing how much bluey and bandit’s interactions are basically bart/homer or lisa/homer depending on the context. very clearly an homage depending on whether we’re meant to interpret bandit failing to pull off being cool or smart

seeing http://worrydream.com/July2023/ i’m struck by the idea that dynamicland as it exists is a project that is defined by its main steward and locale but not by a greater audience that might be capable of deploying it or even interacting with it. his reluctance to general adoption reminds me of the way that people carp about Major Players embrace/extend/extinguish strategy with open protocols at the same time that they try to advocate for retaining control of the protocol.

bret operates like an Artist but it’s hard to square the way he wraps it in the trappings of Academic Research, that is, he’s making his own thing, has a body of work, has a clear Direction and Process but is wholly uninterested in other people generally doing his thing. arguably most researchers are not super invested in ‘a working dialog’ with some random crank with a github account, but it’s, i think, telling, that nobody has been invested enough to try to reproduce the DL Magic™ and he seems uninterested in it becoming an actual general purpose environment, more than he’s interested in it being his own kind of Warhol Factory (or parc, yes, yes, i know).

in the sense that DL has felt unsatisfying, it’s probably largely to do with the tension between it being very obviously a working Studio centered around bret’s practice but attempting to operate like a research group.

remain absolutely baffled at the number of people who get into cs who a) hate to read b) hate to write more than a few words at a time.

it's interesting to me that i've tried writing a lightweight TIL style blog post and failed a few times before just writing a gist that annotated some code i had written along the way. the gist isn't even that interesting, but it's interesting to me (all that matters tbh)

@durumcrustulum yo d, i finally got around to listening to the musk in the middle episode and like 2/3 the way through the audio gets totally messed up @tqbf 's channel got unmuted and shifted over so it was overlapped on a completely unrelated set of conversation (more than usual in any case :p)

this sucks for the community, but the irony of an entity suffering an unexpected problem involving private insurers, medicare, medicaid, inability to find work during a pandemic resulting a collapse into financial ruin and actually wait it's a hospital and not a private individual is just a messed up system.

it’s weird to see people complaining about how usable or confounding swift macros make the language for beginners and like, did they all forget how confounding manual memory management and objc’s object lifecycle was for jr devs as well???? did they think everyone just “got” pointers??? nothing is intuitively obvious

when i posted this in… 2019, it struck me as indicative of how upper middle class people had rationalized their “economic anxiety,” the realization of visible, tangible achievement marred by the post-2008 reality of its precariousness compared to their parents or older siblings.

but looking now, i feels it better captures the nonsense behind crypto and web3—a whole cohort of people roughly my age who missed, by virtue of age or being in school, the spoils of both web 1.0 and 2.0, who had arrived at well paying tech jobs just a little too late for the golden equity offer, felt they had accepted the right job at the wrong startup, or just not exited as early as they had hoped and who desperately wanted, needed, to find a way to manufacture a movement they could helm, that would lead them to the kinds of prosperity they had seen as just out of reach during the years they were still struggling to establish themselves.

In his 1963 book *Misreadings*, Umberto Eco presented a structuralist schematic for generating Jean-Luc Godard films. I've implemented it on @glitchdotcom: https://godard-film-generator.glitch.me/
