This year I ate donuts. Just a whole mess of them. They sort of became my thing, a coping mechanism for an increasingly uncertain world. I actually thought about why I like donuts more than other dessert pastries and perhaps I’ll write a more thorough post about that some day. For the purposes of this article though,…
I’m losing my mother this year. In a way, she’s already lost to me. I don’t really want to talk about her situation in detail. What I choose to reveal on the Internet is actually guided by her opinions and my respect for them since I think they’ve served me well. Instead, I’m just going to talk a bit about how I’ve…
Last week I’m pretty certain I totally forgot about the morning post because I was traveling and sick. So from that unexpected hiatus, the Thursday morning post rises anew and totally fulfills my obligation of the post contributing to the theme of the week. Hooray!
I have a special song for all of you.

Here's a music video from a song from an album called The Unrelenting Songs of the 1979 Post Disco Crash. It imagines your typical fantasy characters as members of a 1970s rock band.
I have mentioned this before on the kinjaverse, but a time ago I went traipsing around Brasil with friends. One stop was Brasilia, where we stayed with a friend. I have many fond memories of that trip but one aspect I'll never be able to forget was the architecture.
I'm not actually a big Bowie fan directly. I have not listened to any album of his straight through and I'd bet that I wouldn't recognize many of his songs. But a lot of other people are fans and covered his tracks (sometimes to my surprise, like the Grum song below).
