I’m really not using mastodon anymore, didn’t want to leave you out of you are though. This is 135 of some of my favorite songs right now. I tried to divide them in to sections of 5 similar song that then transition into different genres. I think this is the best I can do right now so please listen and enjoy. I may not be making music right now but at least I can share this❤️

New album coming from SUN SUN! #Toronto #hiphop producer with Above Top Secret and Witch Prophet. Great list of guest features, especially excited to hear the DijahSB collab.

I haven’t been using Mastodon lately. What’s new?

By the way, these guys are a powerful trio with awesome music. Subjectively weird video, the cinematography is great.

My #1 album of 2022 is "Extreme" by Molly Nilsson. Her tenth album, it came out all the way back in January 2021 and I've been listening to it constantly ever since. A lo-fi electronic pop record for the ages. Probably my favourite current songwriter.

Regular anxiety:

Everyone hates you

My anxiety:

Everyone hates you and here are the many reasons they hate you:

1. That time you said that thing
2. That time you did that thing
3. That time you forgot about that thing
4. All of the above

Staying in an airbnb where the host clearly thinks "nice" = lots & lots of aromas. Perfumes. Scented candles. Incense. It smells like one of those shops in the mall where you buy soap.

Folks, a little aroma goes a long way.

Haven’t posted in a few days. So here’s a blanket update for Christmas. A musical quilt if you well. Really it’s just a playlist. But I hope you guys like it anyways. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, good three day weekend hopefully for y’all!!

Seen in the wild: “All a tells me is you were at least able to cram study and pass tests.”

I can’t even.

Do people really think this? Obviously this guy does, but in general? An honest question, not a rhetorical one.

I’ve spent a significant chunk of my life in the company of people with —including two grandparents, so I understood from childhood that getting a PhD was quite different from any other kind of degree. Most people I know haven’t, but everyone who was part of my life through my long and winding career has a pretty good idea what I did to become Dvorkin. For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m always happy to give a quick sketch.

Among people who don’t have family or friends who have done it, and have never thought seriously about doing it themselves … is that the perception, that grad school is just a more intense version of elementary school through college? More tests, more cramming, more regurgitation, and then you get some shiny new letters after your name?

If that’s the case, I guess I can’t blame them, exactly. Like I’ve said before, most people have no idea how most of the things I’ve done for a living in my life actually work. The , , : all quite mysterious except for what people think they know from movies and TV, which is often worse than complete ignorance. So I guess it’s shouldn’t be a surprise if is on that list.

But I would really like to know how widespread this view is. Maybe I can do something with that.

I should probably do a proper introductory toot, seeing that more and more people are making the move from the avian to the proboscid side of the internet...

I woke this morning to go to the gym and just slept in listening to this. Couldn’t have picked a better way to start the day if I tried. This album was Leonard’s last and although it may be myth. I believe he passed shortly after making this album. Here is the title track and my favorite off the album.

“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen.
