Just put the hubski sticker on the side of my new (used) car :)

Moving:

This week I'm moving out of the apartment I've been at for the last two years and into a rented house one block into the sketchy part of town where the rent is dirt cheap. Got into a bit of a scuffle with the UHaul by knocking the paneling off of a parking garage that was ever so slightly too short to fit the truck. They said they'd call about what's going to happen with that sometime in August, still waiting to hear how bad is bad. Meanwhile, I'm boxing up everything I own and realizing I probably have too many boardgames.

Miscellania:

Tonight is Wallace and Grommit Night for UF's boardgame club, and I've been buying cheese and crackers for that. Super hyped for all the new people joining in Fall. We've been doing house parties on the regular and that's been one of the hilights of the year. I've also been getting slowly into competitive rap battle at the behest of my friend Evan. It's a lot sillier a scene than I was expecting.

I really hate subtitles - unless the whole movie is completely unintelligible, I'd rather miss a few lines then turn the movie into an audiobook. Whenever subtitles are on, it's really hard to ignore them, and then I miss appreciating the visuals as much.

There's so much whiplash going from complaining about the grammar of "Similar Effect To" to immediately abolishing the death penalty.

Also, why do science bloggers inevitably rag on psychology?

Oh it's 100% not new stuff, just a general music-related thing I've been up to. Tho since there's four of us adding to it a good chunk of the songs I haven't heard before (and I've been deliberately avoiding listening to until the trip to keep things fresher) Should have some actual new songs for next week's thread :)

Going on a roadtrip this weekend, so me and the other guys are trying to pool together 35 hours of music,

Here's what we have so far: <iframe src='https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3JADPrNgQgFRUR6PjlR1vU' width='300' height='80' frameborder='0' allowtransparency='true'>

The new stuff I've been listening to is gentle doom prog https://kauan.bandcamp.com/album/kaiho by Russians living in Ukraine and singing in Finnish

To be fair though, YouTube poops rock

No way, is the carillon at the speelklok museum? Ever since watching Wintergatan's videos I've always wanted to check it out. Have a dope trip!

I was thinking they meant it would remove it from the front page, to mark that that post is fully explored, if I'm reading you right @Creativity

By far my favorite YouTube channel. This and pubskis are what make a Wednesday a Wednesday

Just started getting into radiohead myself, which is your favorite album?

Our discord already had eSpencoin or spoin as a way to trade with each other. But since nobody was actually using it, we decided the place needed some class warfare, so whoever has the most gets a shiny gold color for their name and are invited into a secret chat with the next 5 richest. Meanwhile the downtrodden proletariat and thre millennials get a dopey Brown and green color.

Name: spencerflem(ing)

Location: Gainesville, FL

Age: 21

Preoccupation: The boardgame club and the associated discord server. We just got social stratification up yesterday, he who holds the most spoin is Jeff Bezos, and they get an exclusive chatroom with the rest of the 1%

I feel so bad for that site. I joined at the same time as hubski back when it was called whoaverse, and it seemed like a cool hipster Reddit alternative. Went back again last week and it's filled with (((conspiracies))) and outrageously racist and sexist things. Places that pride themselves exclusively on "free speech" seem to devolve into this sort of nonsense by pushing out the people who don't want to bother putting up with it.

It's such a fun little coin. Unlike real crypto which is deflationary, infinite spoin can by minted or destroyed basically whenever. You can give somebody 'pi' coins, and it stays as pi without rounding. Anyone can give anyone else negative imaginary spoin. You can give somebody a formula eg: limit( (x+2) / (x+1), x, oo), so long as it can be solved.

The boardgame club is the light of my life. We have a discord now, and it has grown from a single channel, to an incredibly excessive 20. There's the playlist channel where everyone who joins the club can add one song, another one for poetry and haiku, one for each of the RPG campaigns. There are 5 bots, two for greeting newcomers, one for playing zork, and two for my new Cryptocurrency eSpencoin (here's the whitepaper) which is possibly the first currency to handle numbers symbolically as well as extend to complex numbers. Most weekends now, somebody hosts a houseparty and we chill and chat and loosely contemplate playing games. It's honestly been the greatest thing, so much so that I've forgotten to do my homework and really must get back to my lab due tonight.
