Look, I'm not generally a fan of instrumental hip-hop because so often tracks are memorable for the work of the MC's flow over a great beat. Clams Casino elevates the genre by adding lyrical instrumentation that does more than provide a hook. This album was hard to come by since its 2011 release but its available to stream now.

My go-to teas are from Steven Smith. At $11 for 15 bags its expensive but the flavors are way above other teas at the grocery store. They're local to PDX too.

Their Fez green tea has a touch of spearamint in it that is just amazing. Their peppermint tastes fresher than most others and the Meadow chamomile is extremely floral.

(they're all good iced too)

🍵

Its going to be an up and down day probably. I bought some nice tea to help cope with it.

I really liked this talk by Eugenia Cheng about the usefulness of abstract thinking in daily life and why teaching math well helps people achieve a higher level of thinking. She ties all this in to social justice issues.

On this pre-election day please enjoy some soothing electronic sounds. It's like digital beach music.

What the hell is with these newjack.city follow bots? Do I need to block this instance?

I text-banked for Kate Brown last night and found it the least stressful form of political outreach yet. Far higher number of engagements (positve and negative) than phone-banking. Also, weirdly the people that were hostile replied in a much more civil manner if I replied with something like "OK I appreciate that we see things differently. Thanks for being a voter".

An interesting offering from Digital Ocean if you're running an instance with them. Takes the stress out of managing the DB.

I should have also said that this album is really spacey synth sounds. Kind of nice to work to I think.
