Another boring blog-about-the-blog, sorry. A note-to-self really:

Get rid of unneeded docker container logs with truncate -s 0 /var/lib/docker/containers/*/*-json.log.

Still eating our way through xmas gifts. This 🎩 Pinot Grigio & Fig 🎩 cheese spread sounds ✨faincy✨ but I'll tell you what.... in a blind taste taste, absolutely no one is going to tell the diff between this and that chopped-nut-covered neon-red/neon-orange ball of Port Wine Cheese Spread in the deli case at your local grocery. (which is to say... it's delicious and I ate the whole lil ramekin in 1 sitting.)

Watching the Downton Abbey movie from 2019; pure fan service but I’m impressed at Fellowes’ storytelling skills. Lots of threads and moving pieces and heartstrings being pulled. (wikipedia articles re: the royals involved also help.)

put on the radio while making breakfast. two modern R&B/hip hop tracks, but also “Once in a Lifetime” and “Everyday is Like Sunday.” Very VFS.

I use indiekit and a (simplistic) custom plugin to post here. I set the filename using JS and just realized that it calculates currYear only once when it starts. My 2022 posts were saving to a '21 folder. Only took a restart to fix. (Makes note for 1/1/23)

just listened to a podcast in which the host interviews a musical artist about the origins of a song. (not the popular one, a knockoff series that’s just getting started.)

In interviewing Neil Finn about “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” this guy repeatedly insists that it is also “well-known” as “the Hey Now, Hey Now” song, AND ALSO he repeatedly drops a word from that phrase, calling it the “Hey Now Now” song.

I don’t know a single person in their 30s. Maybe…. maybe… the dinks who call records “vinyls” also call “Don’t Dream It’s Over” the hey now, hey now song. That’s not what my angry “well actually” is about.

my gripe is that the “Hey Now Now” song is by Sisters of Mercy. OBVIOUSLY. GODDDD.

There's a new thing that's happening with Firefox on MacOS where buttons just... don't... work? It's SUPER exciting work they're doing over there. More like web4, amirite? (repeatable examples: PixelFed & Quill.p3k.io, and that's just in the last 20 min.)

This is new for Christmas 2021... white pelicans in our central lake.

(Might not look like much on video but they're so much larger than all our other native birds, I was really surprised seeing them in person. I don't think I knew pelicans came this far inland -- I'm 40 miles or so from the gulf.)

If you asked me how often I use VLC, I'd say "eh, not really that much," but every year I'm delighted by the traffic cone wearing a Santa hat...
