The lyrics from "Click Your Fingers Applauding The Play" by Roky Erickson feel very appropriate in light of how climate change will influence our daily lives in many ways even if we want to or not.

"Click Your Fingers Applauding The Play"
(originally by Roky Erickson)

Click your fingers applauding the play
Such clear clear nights and clear days
Cause lightning never flashes our way
If you click your fingers applauding the play

Fat kings and queens all eating their grapes
Blood and blaspheme not upon the door drapes
Scream out for murder, scream out for hate
If you click your fingers applauding the play

And from the horizons the wrath boot's not down
Clear skies sometimes the clouds so inviting
Such a friendly sound

Temples arising are not raked
Columns not shattered by any earthquakes
The seas and famine are all their own brake
If you click your fingers applauding the play

And from the horizons the wrath boot's not down
Clear skies sometimes the clouds so inviting
Such a friendly sound

Thanks to Electric Six for including this one on their über-cool new album "Streets Of Gold" (2021).

What if due to climate crisis effects and disasters our digital future will depend on low-energy hardware and protocols like Gemini?

"This track is not available in your country" - When are we going to get rid of this licensing nuisance and be able to enjoy music across the World.

From "Auguries of Innocence" by William Blake:

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

Listed up 35 ebooks I currently only can read on Kindle and planning to replace with paper books because I want to make sure my son gets to read them too some day without being locked in.

Who else plays with brown play doh putty together with a three year old and pretends that it's poohpooh / chocolate?

Got my second shot last Thursday afternoon. Felt fine yesterday, with a bit of a sore upper arm. But today I feel worse: head feels blurry and a bit pounding and I'm generally feeling off. No fever. Taking it easy.

15:10 Uhr an einem Freitagnachmittag und die Kirchenglocken spielen verrückt. Ist das wirklich nötig?
