I frequently repost mOm’s Penrose tiling comfort quilt
on social media. mOm secretly resents this but doesn’t complain because she’s not actually being injured also it gives me a thrill to see which of my friends likes it this time. I love how it’s mostly quite muted, but also BUSY.
So I spent money on line again, but I got TWO unboxing experiences, one with Paul and one with Mike.
The device is called a GoSun Go and it’s a 2 pound solar oven. Paul and I boiled water for tea and shared a cup. It was most pleasant. Later on in the afternoon I asked Mike if he wanted it, he said yes but he didn’t want to have to lug it back since he walked over, so we pretended to unbox the previously unboxed one and he started thinking about what he wants to cook on the beach.
Jeff and I went for a walk in Hilda Park yesterday morning. I wore my face shield, but there was nobody in the park and with the wind and sun, which was continuous, I didn’t really feel scared of no virus.
Rex Murphy talking about how Canada is not a racist country when every inch of it is built on land stolen from the Indigenous nations is quite the thing.
On this page there are at least two versions of Toy Town Parade, one corrected and one original, and ain’t technology grand. Anyhoo pOp you should like this tune.
brO and I went for a walk in Hilda Park today, and we got to watch crows feed their babies and one of those crows send an adult bald eagle packing. The eagle twitched its tail in irritation as a crow pecked at it… and it all took place at low altitude so a) we got a great view but b) sadly very brief.
Trees are already growing in the playground, coming up through the mulch. They would have been ground into nothingness by the kids playing, but now they’re coming up in dozens.
I believe – I will know for sure in a couple of days, but I believe one of the bambara beans sprouted.
Come As You Are – three disabled guys go on a road trip to a brothel in Montreal with Gabourey Sidibe as the driver. Jeff and I laughed our asses off. It tries to speak to the difficult truths about autonomy and pleasure and love without talking down to disabled people and for the most part succeeds. There are a number of interesting twists on the trope of the magical Black woman, most of which land deftly, but you can tell white people, non disabled. wrote it. Also Jeff called one of the main plot points about thirty seconds into the road trip so full marks for observation. Cried at the end so hard the top of my head nearly caved in, full marks to me for being a drip.
First Love – Funny, horrifying, over-the-top, stylish and touching all at once, this ensemble bloodbath with a happy ending is utterly worth seeing just for how fast it moves and the clockwork intricacy of the plotting and fight scenes, and for how it casually integrates the cultural differences of the principals into the action. (Chinese gangs vs Japanese cops vs. Yakuza vs. extremely confused but survival-oriented lower-class civilians.) One of the characters is floridly psychotic and hallucinating due to drug toxicity for a good chunk of the movie which just adds to the ‘not knowing what the fuck is going to happen next’ thrill ride of it all.
I’ve added a tag to the song “I’m going to have to ask the smart people to leave”.

I am not a fan of age regressed fan pics for these two actors (Misha Collins and Jensen Ackles) so these pics make me very happy.
This is absolutely thrilling. Just at the point I needed some math to support the bizarre way the aliens I’m writing about run their innards, here it is. Also I can use it to explain how they steal telephony. Oh jargonistic handwaving how much I love thee!
