"The 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work."

So once again government incompetence has cut off funding for my dream gig (it was a nice... few months, anyway) and I'm adrift in the covid economy.

If you have a line on work involving: Audio Mixing, Audio Programming, Multimedia manipulation or programming in general, or a general Python / Rust gig, I would really, really appreciate it.

In the meantime, I have albums available for sale here:

mired.bandcamp.com/
wingfactory.bandcamp.com/

I also take music commissions.

US Health 

This article, while being concerning in and of itself, also contains the line

"... the cancellation of elective procedures — to conserve scarce resources for patients with covid19 — is halting the type of services that produce the most revenue."

For-profit healthcare is a fucking travesty.

gov't support of business during covid 

I'm a small businessman. I welcome government support of my business. And I got needs.

-I need my customers to live.
-I need them to feel there is a future.
-I need them to be able to afford my books
-I need them to receive care while ill
-I need them to still have jobs when they recover from illness
-I need them to be able to afford my books when they recover, rather than drown in medical debt

Yes, government. Please support business.

Given that we're in a time where toilet paper people are going "oh my goodness I have to buy up all the toilet paper before SOMEONE ELSE buys it!" I think it's time we had a full and frank discussion about bidets, bum sprayers and other more effective ways of keeping yourself clean.

The truth is that of all the most common methods around to clean your bum, toilet paper is the most expensive, uncomfortable, unhygienic and environmentally unfriendly. Alternatives follow in next toot.

The new OS I've been working on is finally public! Almost all of our work is in Rust, which was a great experience. github.com/bottlerocket-os/bot
