Some floral remedies, stat!


You know it’s spring when, just after sunset, the refrigerator constellation rises in the western sky.

(But seriously, remember that our perspective on the stars is at the same time wonderfully unique but not at all special, and the stellar stories that we write are products not only of our imaginations, but also our brain’s relentless desire to recognize patterns in random assortments of far away dots)

If we acknowledged all of our work as work, we could set appropriate limits for it, demanding fair compensation and humane schedules that allow for family and leisure time.

And if we did that, more of us could get around to doing what it is we really love.


In the Name of Love

Elites embrace the “do what you love” mantra. But it devalues work and hurts workers.

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun
Alan Rickman


Alan Rickman reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks; 
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
   And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
   As any she belied with false compare. 

Shakespeare, the realist.

Needed to see if a query was working

# perl -MDBI -MData::Dumper -e '$a = DBI->connect("dbi:CSV:", "", "", { f_dir => "/path/to/dir/with/csv/files" }); while(my $query = ) { chomp $query; $s = $a->selectall_arrayref($query); print Dumper($s); }'

Ended up with a minimalistic SQL client (that tries to treat all queries as selects).

Just dance.
