ThoughtsIn general, worth the read; probably longer than necessary.
I was well aware of the concept of BS Jobs before reading
so nothing was very mindblowing or surprising but for those
who have never read the original essay and question the value
of spending their life at their 9to5, I think it's something that to check out.
I think React is inherently terrible... 🔗
This is why I like frontend development... 🔗
you get to see the results of your work. It's satisfying to start with a blank screen or perhaps a times new roman mess, and leave it as something that looks great and works well. Backend development can sometimes be a tedious death march where all you get at the end of the day/week/sprint is not-an-error or perhaps just wiring up RPCs, or maybe if you are very lucky upgrading to a new point-release of a library with no other visible changes. Don't get me wrong, refactoring and fixing backend bugs can be satisfying, but I often find it is not as genuinely enjoyable as being able to actually see the results of your work.
I'm not sure why people think getting vaccinated is evidence of support for mandatory vaccinations... 🔗
Taxes are mandatory too, I pay them not because I think they're at the right level and used for the right things, but because of the practical repercussions of what would happen if I didn't and I got found out. (it shouldn't matter, but - I'm double vaccinated, mainly because the jurisdiction I live in requires it for air travel. I have no strong feelings about vaccines either way).
Babytron - Megatron
Whole album bangs. Really love his off kilter, barely on beat flow. Beats are sensational and a breath of fresh air. Check it out.
Kendrick Lamar - Mr Morale and the Big Steppers
Haven't finished the album as of today (05/18/2022) but I really enjoyed the first half. We Cry Together is genuinely great especially followed by Purple Hearts.
N95 bangs and so does Die Hard. Overall, I enjoy the more annoyed vibe from Kendrick.
Destroy Lonely - No Stylist
This album worked the fill the gap Carti left recently. Very good production, quotable lines.
The first half is definitely stronger than the second but overall fun rap album.
Lucki - Flawless Like Me
I've never loved Lucki's raps, but he has a phenomenal taste in beats, and FLM is a great example of this.
I really loved this album primarily for the production but Lucki can be catchy as well.
