I'll admit I've never gotten that into Norm except for listening to a select few of his very long and very funny jokes a bunch of times, but my patience level for the kind of idiocy expressed in that interview is just gone

I kinda knew he would have those politics tho

that being said, I found Nanette unwatchable, and was comforted by people pointing it out to be problematic around some stuff like trans issues, which then meant to my dumb brain that I was smart not to watch it

Not that it lets him off the hook, but after hearing about his Downe syndrome comments today I have to wonder if he's self sabotaging with this new promising show coming out. He can't be this stupid can he?

I've become pretty convinced that in some cases it is a rational career move to court like "mob censorship" so you can go on the Rubin speaking circuit. Peterson sold like 2 million books this year, people are pretty into voting with their bucks on this idea of PC gone mad. I doubt this is Norm's play but man for young people in grad school it must be pretty tempting to just go full free speech martyr when the alternative is sub-minimum wage TAships and sessional contracts that don't get renewed until the day before a new semester starts and you hate most of the people in your cohort anyway.

User practice I was in Barcelona in May. It's pretty easy to not spend money there, or at least not spend money on attractions. Basically, in the 10 districts, there's all kinds of cool things to just walk around and see (Las Ramblas, Port Vell, the beach on the east side...then Montjuc and all kinds of other shit to walk around and see for free otherwise.) The Sagrada Familia is worth seeing for free from the outside and they'll try to shake you down for 30 euros to go inside but I never did. Basically they have jamon and tapas and Estrellas and sangria and wine virtually everywhere and it's good everywhere except this one "corporate" place I stopped at near the city center.

I also saw two soccer matches when I was there and those were insane but it's Barcelona and tickets are pretty expensive but probably not as expensive as Premier League.

In summary, I had an excellent time just walking around and eating and drinking.

No but you totally could. Shit I now regret not renting a bike. Anyway, there are plenty of places to buy motorcycle helmets for sure.

My favorite band on that bill is 65daysofstatic, who I suspect got a bit of a boost from doing the soundtrack for No Man's Sky (which seemed interesting but I never got around to playing it).

They do not tour the US very often, so I've only seen them once. They were the middle band on the bill, with local post-rock heroes Caspian headlining. 65DOS have a lot more energy than most post-rock bands, since they take a good amount from IDM, and they were great live. I'd seen Caspian before a couple of times, once at an incredibly tiny bar by my old apartment, and they're generally good live. But this time they came on with a 10+ minute slow-builder. It was nice in theory but I was standing up off to the side of the venue and it was like all of the energy rushed out of the room. I decided to bail but then realized that every single person around me was a Caspian family member. It was all parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, etc. All totally normal-looking people. I wanted until the end of the song and tried to leave as inconspicuously as possible.

I'm past the quote limit of holy fuckin snow Calgary.


OK this snow situation is getting insane.

4 buses lost their shit on the hill from my house to downtown Calgary, so the entire road was closed. I walked to the bottom and obviously no buses were getting through so I just kept walking to work, took about an hour through calf/knee deep snow.

Downtown, almost every single block had a bus stuck on in. From my office I watched crews of firemen slowly go from bus to bus digging them out. One spot downtown a bus had jack knifed across the road and up onto the curb and got stuck, then like 5 more buses got stuck behind it. Saw this from a +15 walkway where like 10 people were posted up filming the mayhem.

Didn't really stop snowing all day.

after buying the wrong type of transit ticket and then having to go withdraw cash to take the airport transit we understood instead of trying to figure out what our airport fare bought from a machine entitled us to we got to the airport in pretty good time and chilled a bit not realising that there's a UK border/customs point right before the gate. I can't go through the speed passport thing and the line was like 60 people I figured there was no way it was happening. Wife went through so at least we'd only have to book one flight but I made it through with like 5 mins to spare after which I had to repack my bags a bit to get onto Ryanair without an extra bag fee, during which process I obviously put my boarding pass into some pocket and I had a freakout search for it as the last people were getting on. But found it and whatever the important lesson to learn is there's no reason not to get stoned all day before having to get to the airport.

Yesterday I got my passport, laptop, keys, and about $500 worth of assorted things stolen in Rome on our honeymoon by being a careless idiot! Trip was good before that tho.
