I've been playing with the Pimoroni Keybow again. I thought I'd write about it. It's a fun little tech toy, powered by a :raspberrypi: Raspberry Pi Zero WH, which seems hideously wasteful, but seriously, that board is $14, I don't know if you could make a cheaper compute component.

Anyway, here's what I did, with a link to my "code" on github. Honestly I'm most proud of the comment at the top of the file.

Things I should tell my kids 

Nobody likes doing dishes. Everyone likes clean dishes.

𝗦𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲:

Most of the 𝑺𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒘 𝑽𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒚 𝑶𝑺𝑻. But that's just good music in general. It's a little unfair that Eric Barone is good at literally everything, but I'll take it. Stardew Valley is a masterpiece.

𝑪𝒍𝒂𝒊𝒓𝒆 𝒅𝒆 𝑳𝒖𝒏𝒆 by Debussey.

𝗦𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲: 𝑯𝒐𝒘 𝑪𝒂𝒏 𝑰 𝑺𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑳𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝑨 𝑮𝒊𝒓𝒍 by They Might Be Giants. The fuzzy backing guitar sounds like a headache feels.

Good morning.

Everybody wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Everybody except Chad. Don't be like Chad. Get you a rock to wind a string around.


My wife and I found these are our local Southeast Asian market, and they're surpringly good! I mean, the rest of my family hates them, but I like them quite a bit.

I applaud people who are working on their next million dollar idea, but I’m just not that ambitious at the moment. I’m working on my next thousand dollar idea.


I read the news for 40 seconds, and now I'm mad and sad. They've gotten better at their jobs; 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕'𝒔 𝒆𝒙𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒍𝒚 𝒉𝒐𝒘 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒚 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒎𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒇𝒆𝒆𝒍. People with strong emotional reactions keep clicking...

Or close the browser window and go complain on :mastodon:

My kids have finally answered the question "What would it look like if Iron Man was a horse witch on vacation in New Orleans?"


Don't get me wrong, I like :ffxiv: Final Fantasy XIV. And I like video game soundtracks! But even I am left wondering who they think is going to buy a $35 CD of EDM mixes of BGM tracks.

Midnight snack:

- weak
- uninspired

The Dark Feast:
