By the end of this century, the way things are going, I highly doubt that we will have any choice in the matter. There is already a mass surveillance system in place, it's not long until everyone is part of the network by default. I would like to at least see some of the profit that comes from my data being sold. We don't even see a penny of it. Maybe get a tax break? That too much to ask?

There's a new rhythm video game that released last Friday. The soundtrack is stellar.

This is flipping fantastic. I'm glad to hear that folks are paying down their debts and generally being frugal with their money. The question is now what happens (theoretically) if all of us pay down all our debt? No more credit card debt. Then what? The banks shit the bed?

This is spooky. Nuclear accidents are a terrible thing. If you haven't yet, I highly suggest watching Chernobyl, the mini-series released by HBO. While it is dramatized a lot, it does a good job of showing the massive undertaking it took to get Chernobyl under control and to safe levels.


Artists get paid such a penance for putting their works up on these streaming sites. It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that some artists refuse to do so, even if it would get them more exposure and a larger audience. Youtube pays jack shit now a days. Most Youtube channels I watched regularly have switched over to either Twitch or another video hosting service. Although I am not sure how much good it will do them, as content creators don't have too many choices when it comes to free hosting of videos/content.

Good luck goob! I'm sure that the new pup will never replace your Layna, but can certainly be a new companion on this crazy ride we call life.
