Mili, a Japanese / Canadian / American avant-garde techno pop group that I just started following this summer, have released a funny song about a cat who becomes a ghost on Halloween. 🐈 🎃

Watching the Vice Presidential Debate. Two panes of plexiglass between the candidates, but none in front of the of the moderator as she talk-spews her filthy human germs and viruses directly towards them? And no masks? Heh. 😉

Humping Hobbits? So there’s this. Sex and nudity is an easy crutch for unimaginative writing taking on great material for an audience that has no expectations or desires for it in the story.

Here is an interesting video essay on how China’s new electric jet engine idea functions.

If President Trump did call the place a "dump", I think he was just honestly calling it as he sees it, and perhaps he was right.

There's a good article in The Washington Post about this this week. It doesn't sound great there. 🤔

White House to become less ‘dump’-like in Trump’s absence

@adam A little something for your selfie-stick love. 😉

"Woman knocks over $200,000 worth of art trying to take a selfie"

And in "drain the swamp" news...

"Parasite Kills About 80 Ducklings in Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool"

You gotta love the "33" address too! 😏

Long Lines Building, 33 Thomas Street

Speaking of Twitch, this is interesting...

"Twitch is currently playing the stock market with one man’s $50,000"

A guy set up a channel to let Twitch users direct his investment in real-time. He set up a custom interface, etc. This'll be fun to observe.

@adam and @Johncdvorak,

Regarding this weekend's ponderings on what the heck is up with all the "Mr. Rogers" coverage in the press, were you guys aware that Amazon has a "charity" donation deal running with PBS right now?

They are streaming ALL episodes of the show on Amazon's Twitch.TV?

This might have something to do with all the promotion.

I figure they're pandering to Millennials' damaged psychology with comfort food video for cash.

We live in amazing times! Chickens that now produce parts in the shape of Doritos, perfect for dipping! I am truly blessed to have been born in this age of succulent miracles!

@ryanbytes It's just heresay, but supposedly before facebag deleted his profile, there was a post about him converting to Islam. Made me think about that other vet who was in Alaska and told the FBI he was hearing voices, then he converted to Islam before doing the deed. Regardless, doubt we'll ever get the full story.

Pretty amazing stuff. Although I did feel a bit sorry for the pigs. However, they do taste good, so I got over it.

Always remember the basic rule that has been proven accurate 100% of the time:

1. When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).

2. When the State Dept. or FBI/DOJ wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with CNN and the New York Times. (and vice-versa)

Sitting down to read this. The first batch of press were given a tour of Apple's wild new HQ yesterday. I'm reading Steven Levy's article first since he's probably the best writer on modern computer history to date. (Actually a great writer, and not a "journalist" as most of the others are who were invited.)

Well, that's a pretty interesting kill-switch for the malware.

"Registering a single web address may have stopped a global malware attack"
