TikTok is all Mina would do all day, if I didn’t force her out of the house to go shopping and stuff.

Cosmic Buddha has never charged for music, mostly because we know we suck (although that obviously does not stop others). We have not released music for many years, but we have the Real Media files, several mixtapes, and Y2K coding errors to prove we were first. Our band predates our blog on this domain by 10 years or so, and it’s been going since 2003.
Also, here’s some album art and gig posters from back in the day:
I was online looking for a cheap amp to replace my current cheap one (which has bust a capacitor or something and picked up an oscillating ground loop type hum) when I stumbled onto this beauty of a knockoff:
At first glance, I thought it was a legit Marshall product made for millennials, because with the similar font, my brain just skipped over the odd letter.
But this is only part of the reason this is one of my favorite knockoffs this year. The other lies in the specs:

Fun thing I learned today regarding secure passwords: the password "ji32k7au4a83" looks like it'd be decently secure, right? But if you check e.g. HIBP, it's been seen over a hundred times.

Even after four years since its publication on SSSS, this is still one of my favorite images to just sit back and appreciate… Sometimes I just stare at this and listen to Nujabes when I’m thinking about something else. Karelian! Ludian! Vepsian! The names run wild in my head.
Note: Do not ask this AI to generate a picture of someone sitting next to you, unless they happen to look like a Dali-Picasso hybrid: Text to Image
Maybe after FB withers and joins Hi5 and MySpace in the Afternet, blogging will come back big… I really don’t care that much, but it would be kind of cool to see people writing more and emoji-ing less 😉
Also, WordPress completely prevented my posting capabilities today until I installed their new editor plugin called Gutenberg, which really reminds me of early HTML editing software (PageMill? GoLive? Claris?). I mean, I thought we ditched block editors for simpler editing tools… Or are there only nerds and techies still blogging?
Via Reddit, the most important protest sign of this generation:
According to their customer support, mytrip.com will not automatically sit your family together UNLESS you specify it at time of purchase and pay extra for it. They repeated more than once that this is specified in their terms and conditions, in reply to my multiple requests to not have my kids sit next to strangers (again).
Hopefully, this is enough to let you know what kind of operation they are running.

Yes, I am aware that the airline is in charge of final seating decisions. The thing is, we’ve been flying KAL for 30+ years with no issues; we are long time Morning Clam members and I’m even flying on a reward ticket (the mytrip.com tickets are for my wife and kids).
Please be aware of this unethical company and their stupid policies!
