TFS 8 – Feng Shui, O and A Origins, and talking Talking Heads

As I swing in right after a major organizational effort I introudce Mr. Money Moustache’s concept of hedonic adaptation somewhat (eh..) accurately. I then go on to discuss the participation trophy trope and how puzzlingly popular it remains among right wing blowhards. I then… Continue Reading “TFS 8 – Feng Shui, O and A Origins, and talking Talking Heads”

TFS 7 – Bureacratic Limbo, Inescapable Flow States, and Breakfast Cake

A semi-solipsistic shotgun blast of impromptu theorizing.

TFS 6 – Canned Experience, Language and Inclination, You are the “Audience”

Do world languages shape cultures and the capacities of the people that comprise those cultures. When creating for an audience remember that the audience is… Continue Reading “TFS 6 – Canned Experience, Language and Inclination, You are the “Audience””

I go over those and some odds and… Continue Reading “Imperial Japan, Bertrand Russell, and Productivity (Vlog Thing)”

Idea Medley – Dealing With Interrupts, Vulgar vs Manners, and some Guitaring (Vlog)

Made this last night. Given hardware limitations it took three hours just to render two clips stuck together. Ain’t nothin spectacular just riffing on various odds and ends like: dealing with procrastination, what’s actually vulgar, and then there’s a bit of musical nonsense.
