My Spotify Wrapped up for 2023
Don't we just love Spotify? It has been the best thing for me, these past few years. I remember the days of little earbud headphones connected to my old Nokia, listening the the radio. After a couple of cheap Mp3 players died, I got an Ipod for Christmas. Yay, I could really choose my own music.
There's a light I hold before me
May the ghosts that howled ‘round the house at night / Never keep you from your sleep / May they all sleep tight down in hell tonight / Or wherever they may be... [Lullaby of London : MacGowan, 1988]

Spotify Wrapped 2023
Y'all it's that time of year, anticipated by many a Spotify user. Wrapped first started in 2016, although a less developed version "Year in Music" had been premiered the year before. Wrapped gives users a look at the music they listen to from January 1st to October 31st, which, at least for me, is usually a moment to be surprised (or not).

That was embarrassing

It was one of those lively gatherings where people from all walks of life converged for a night of celebration. Little did I know, this night would etch a memory in my mind under the category of "That was embarrassing."
So I Talked to ChatGPT About AxCx (IT DIDN’T GO WELL)
In the modern era, businesses have to be insanely careful not just what they say, but what their products, representatives and employees do. What they have to say, what they stand for, what they believe, both the left and right are willing to boycott over the slightest little disagreement. When your product is a sometimes erratic AI, you have to be extra careful about what it says. Maybe that’s when I wanted to talk about Seth Putnam and Anal Cunt, our conversation kept getting flagged and censored.
Was Frank Zappa CIA?
One aspect about living in these exciting modern times that I still find surprising, regardless of how often I'm reminded that I should not, is how often "conspiracy theorists" are proven correct. Both on the left and the right, the things which lived in the shadows no longer do, and have the sunlight of citizen journalism and social media exposing much of what they do. On the flip side of that, you see how far they go to cover up other things as well; while the information may be out of reach, their efforts to keep the public at large knowing the reality of various situations, from aliens to islands, are not.

Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii
Pink Floyd gathered in the amphitheater in the ruins of Pompeii in 1972 to film one of the greatest concert films and documentaries of a rock group of the psychedelic era. Set amid the ruins of the devastated ancient city, the camera slides up and down, panning left and right over the painted frescoes and grim mosaics that document the lives and loves of ancient people, providing a sort of glimpse into the fate of beings cut short through the sheer absurdity of catastrophic misfortune. Out of the mercurial swamp of the lave flow of Vesuvius, we have the stuff from which is born, from the burbling earth, a new and more magnificent ruin for which time will still have no pity, no mercy, or no remorse.
A crime most clever
