#introductions Hello! Longtime Robbinsdale resident here, I live right across the street from where the Blue Line extension will (supposedly, hopefully, eventually) go in.
I built my own house here, took me three years. I can maybe help with home maintenance-y Qs?
Married a Canadian, have 2 small kids, enjoy handcrafting websites, learning LISP (Racket), & publishing little books.
Not sure what (if anything) it says about my daughter that she pleads to see this video on my phone every night before bed: https://youtu.be/O7eQKSf0LmY
To be fair, everything about this video, from Attenborough’s voice, to the lovely music, to the comically gratuitous Foley, is awesome
The Mueller report was basically an impeachment roadmap, and it was meticulously investigated. Now we're throwing that out the window and selling a jumpstarted impeachment campaign to the public on the basis of an as-yet unknown whistleblower complaint? It's almost as if both sides have collaborated to set this up to fail.
I confess I’m super confused and struggling with all this. Has it not been standard for American administrations to use aid money as leverage against other countries for political purposes for the last sixty years? What is new about this? How exactly is it illegal or impeachable in ways all the other shit isn't?
Suppose in 2021 President Warren threatens to withhold aid money from Israel unless they cooperate with an investigation into the Koch brothers. Is that impeachable now?
The nearly-empty, Wednesday-evening Landmark Cinema reminds me of the 60s version of the hotel in “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. The lonesome lobby person as the only visible staff, the ventilation noises conspicuously audible in the absence of any conversation above a murmur, the unused and thrice-made-over grandeur.
It’s amazing how, when driving back into the Twin Cities after a week up north, there’s not a drastic change in the treescape itself that lets you know you’re in the cities. Literally the roads themselves are the only real change, until you get within sight of downtown. Not sure if that makes any sense.
