Look at the mask use. I was in Korea when this thing kicked off and this was my normal https://youtu.be/lqj7l0Xk0Ho
Coming back to the USA and watching us stand maskless on the train tracks yelling “tracks have nothing to do with where trains go!” as the light kept getting closer and brighter was one of the most infuriating experiences of my life. Now they’ve beaten 3 nearly impossible-to-beat outbreaks and we’re spiraling down the drain
Why is all the public health communication still based on droplet transmission? It’s been crystal clear to even the layman that indoor super spreading events are airborn since like February. We’re gonna pay for this divorce from reality as the weather gets colder and people maintain the proximity bad habits they got used to during the summer
pokimane went vtuber https://www.twitch.tv/pokimane
By a million miles she's the biggest streamer (at least in the USA) to have tried this & it's kind of groundbreaking. tbh I think we're going to see this a lot more. The weight of being a public figure online is crushing, having something to hide behind makes total sense. Branded avatars have potential even beyond the brand of the actual creator. There are tons of super practical reasons for more creators to at least start experimenting with this
Nakata deep cut of the day: Capsule - mutations of life
The economy of instrumentation is so interesting, especially the (awesome!) bass being absent for most of the song but coming in halfway through the chorus
whole dam world's falling apart and here I am grinning like a buffoon cuz bob mould dropped a new track and the band looks like they're having SO MUCH FUN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IowGrGWzecQ :D :D :D
Youtube, twitter, facebook, snapchat, etc.’s algorithms aren’t just bad, they’re *violently* bad. Why is American tech unable to iterate on this in any direction other than implosion? How is the most critical product in the world in 2020 (curation) always offered as a one-size-fits-all zero-agency opaque sludgecannon? The company/ecosystem that steps back and gives a developer community the handlebars on this shall inherit the earth.

new capsule album whennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
New nakata song dropped yesterday and I've listened 50 times and learned it on guitar already lol. Fun retro vibes & old tom hits. Great little composition ideas like the descending B9, the pre-chorus Dm9, the Am7 before the resolve at the end. Classic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=172ziF3pmPs
Nakata deep cut of the day: Perfume - Clockwork as performed solo by titojwonnie https://youtu.be/sa6cyGh4MGs
Love little inspiring things like seeing someone following a passion like this. Don’t have anyone to do the dance with? Learn all 3 parts and splice it!
Not to mention the precision, artistry, brilliance, etc... imagine the *physical pain* of doing this for hours on end thousands of times over 4+ decades https://youtu.be/PvxQeD5iLB0 the older I get the more I shift to being in awe of the sheer endurance of performers who never let up. Bob Mould screaming his lungs out & going home to sit by the ocean because it’s the only thing that drowns out his tinnitus. Hell even Perfume these days I just marvel at dancing in heels for hours straight for 20 years
I love technology and music. Mostly splitting my time between Minnesota and Seoul at the moment.
