Taylor Swift is not just dominating vinyl sales and streams, you could also buy the album on cassette.

@chris ha! I definitely had a couple I dug.. I love the hell outta the single. Kinda wish more were like that, but still. Some awesome synthy stuff. Wife is a BIG Swiftie haha. I think it's gonna grow on her. Folklore did. And she loved Midnights. There's some cool stuff on that one. A lot of my favorites are on 1989.

@skullvalanche 🤣 it's my favorite Beach Boys album. Figured I'd never find a copy in the wild this nice. Almost end of record buying by mail season here in AZ. Getting too hot so I gotta grab up what I can haha. Blows my mind it's almost 60 years old. Damn

Quite surprised to read that #WomenWhoCode is shutting down: locally in #SanDiego they have had a number of great events with speakers, a Slack with good participation, and more. https://womenwhocode.com/blog/the-end-of-an-era-women-who-code-closing Some of us remember San Diego as home to a #WebGrrls chapter which evolved into digitElle and Techniquelle, long forgotten entities now. But there's still utility in such orgs. Perhaps there are others and I'm merely unaware of them.

idk what shit microsoft is smoking but the latest teams update has made it exceptionally worse for no discernible reason

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@farrisswisher yeah. I tried it for a couple hours and changed it back. HATE it (even more than the current version, which I hate a LOT).

And now they're talking about requiring Microsoft logins for Windows 11 (not to mention the crap ads in it). I'm not using it yet thankfully. They started trying to charge me for Excel and Word on my 5 year old personal HP laptop with 10 on it.

So I uninstalled them and put LibreOffice on it. Should've never stopped using it. I'm not paying Microsoft for Office stuff. It'll never happen.

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@farrisswisher luckily mine has this in the top left corner. I figure it'll force us to use the new version eventually.

@irafcummings it's up next for me after Taylor's 31 songs haha. I was bummed by the first track after loving the single(s) it sounded kinda samey. But I'm gonna go through it all today!

@LeftCoast yep! It's up next here for me. Loved the single(s) but bounced off the first track yesterday haha. So we will see.

hl, to music
@hl@social.lol avatar

It's a Friday where I can work from home and try and get stuff done, so a random CD pick out of my shelf to listen to; today's winner is 'Make Another World', Idlewild's 2007 album. Not as iconic as some of their earlier albums, yet a very solid melodic & rock work.

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@bendaubney @hl 😂 despite being in a bunch of bands, I've oddly never done karaoke and always kinda wonder what song I'd do haha

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@bendaubney @hl ha! That is a REALLY good one. Or maybe it would be Joe Jackson or Dancing Days hahaha

our orthodontist society is out of control. messed up teeth add character. barring health issues: it's societally-imposed vanity. i will still kiss even the most f$&ked up of teeth mouths.

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@Badolwen @buru5 @spinning_bird yeah, that does suck. And I've noticed it, even myself. I think more highly of people with whiter teeth. Even though mine are so yellow. It's an unconscious visual bias

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@spinning_bird @Badolwen @buru5 I've tried whitening strips, I hate having them in my mouth and you have to do them for so long, I gave up. Couldn't do it. So unless I have it professionally done, because yeah the whitening toothpastes don't even do much, I tried those for quite a while

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@Badolwen @spinning_bird @buru5 whew, no mine are way worse I took a photo and I won't even post. Wow, how does my wife love me hahaha

@spinning_bird hahaha well I appreciate that.

Things you realise once you reach #Forever28.

  • You can finish and become rich in #SimFarm. But as a Forever28, you can't duplicate your success.
  • You can win every single game of #CaesarIII and #CaesarIV, but not as a Forever28.
  • You play #Diablo (the original) without cheating (especially the duplicate cheat). As a Forever28, you can't even imagine how you played Diablo without cheating.

Most important of all: you still don't like #eyecandy games. Games like #MUD / #MUSH (text-based online #RPG), #roguelike, dungeon crawlers, and isometric games, are still your go to #games.

@youronlyone haha thanks! Classics. And oh wow yeah they should really remaster those Carmen Sandiego games!
