The occassional non-Irish tune is okay but you should balance it out with four of five trad Irish submissions.

A good rule of thumb is: would I play this in an Irish session?

Actually, I meant fix that ship stuck in the Suez canal. Just ’cause my mind had allocated equal importance to that and The Minecraft Situation.

Very happy that one of them has been resolved!

Can we talk about their deductive reasoning skills (or lack thereof)?

For example: “Tonight there’s going to be a jailbreak …somewhere in this town.”

Somewhere in this town‽

Like, maybe, oh, I don’t know …the jail perhaps?

When you stare into the abyss, sometimes the abyss stares back.

Wait. The abyss is on mute. “Abyss! You’re on mute!”

Oh, I’m on mute too.

That explains all the staring.

Yes! This!

If I’ve written some JavaScript I want to share but it doesn’t fit in a single gist, I take it as a signal that I’ve got some dependency problems.

Very pleased that BBC iPlayer now has the television adaptation of Dan Simmons’s The Terror.

Or, as @wordridden calls it, Monster And Commander.

Anyone who is unironically into NFTs just sounds like Nathan Barley to me.

“A self-facilitating non-fungible media node, yeah?”

The difference being that Nathan Barley didn’t burn the planet for kicks.

Speaking of his novel Mother Night, Kurt Vonnegut said it was the only story of his whose moral he knew:

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
