Baby giraffe, do do do do do do…

(Sorry…could. Not. Resist.)

Uh, something I never expected to read from Mac.

*Schnort*

Me, either.

Okay…who wants fermented Baltic Sea herring? (I brought enough for everyone.)

I wonder if it pairs well with casu marzu?

these kids used to have a site called “Foods I fear” which was so funny. Now long gone.

I forgot to say that yesterday’s thread picture reminded me of Obama’s confusion that time trying to get an umbrella through a gate in the rain.

Hi, Fatwa. Good morning, GN.

Hiya, Sven!

I’d forgotten that bit of lore about our former god-king.

This comment about the Americans killed in Mexico, “Everyone is in so much shock,” he said. “It’s just unbelievable and there’s just no way to comprehend it.” has me shaking my head as these things occur in Mexico almost daily and yet the media in our country has next to nothing to say about it.

Open borders? Sure. What could possibly go wrong.

It’s currently trending on

People still don’t understand how dangerous it is to go to Mexico

De nada, Sven. 👿

While I have zero empirical evidence, I am strongly inclined to believe that surströmming is even more vile than gefilte fish.

=================

Folks who are unaware of the daily murder rate in Mexico are clearly not paying attention.

Ditto re the U.S. being the cartels’ number one market.

And the non-trivial overnight reduction in violence across America the day after the 21st Amendment was ratified.

So. Harper has asked me to bring her to the wheel again. So perhaps this evening, she’ll be on for a while. I think I’ve found a way she can follow along. The thing is, She always seems the same to me… like she can just do anything… I know she does a lot of work to compensate, but she so misses all of you and cherishes her time helping out as admin and hanging out with you all.

That would be delightful! OK, everyone! Time to clean up the cage! Refill the water bottle on the right -- this time with water! And for goodness sake put on some pants!

That would be lovely!

I tend to not refresh here too much in the afternoon and evening but will pay closer attention today. 🙂

And for goodness sake put on some pants!

There are very few folks I’d do that for; Harper’s one of them.

I hope these are sufficiently festive.

I think the entire horn section of your new band should wear them.

Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Heh.

Only if they can also do M.C. Hammer choreography. Which -- given the likely demographic of said horn players -- seems wildly unlikely.

Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, dv8, and Mac!

I wonder new plans the Democrats have to bring down our government?

Figuring out new youtube stuff--top of the mornin’.

I guess it’s about time I figure out some of their new paradigms. Of course this is about the time that anyone the least bit controversial is moving to bitchute. Whcih…. I already have a bitchute, and really it might be a better place for someone new (ish) and/or with few subs.

They (youtube) have this newish thing were you make (sorta) templates. I guess I should be learning that.

I uploaded one video about 8-10 years ago, but it no longer appears on my channel. Oh, well.

Just kidding, but it’s me trying out Adobe Premier for the first time. Importing a bunch of separate takes (only one camera) and auto-syncing them via audio to see how that feature works.

I’m so old that I can remember when that would have been considered a pretty good “electronic” piano sound.

(Because I recall horrors like the RMI Electra Piano.)

That thing was awful!!! The Rhodes and Wurlitzer were both pretty good in their own way.
