these republican reps fucking suck lmao are you watching this shit

They’re rearing up on their hind legs and going *on record* to defend him. It’s astonishing.

Love to hear all these reps defending the President who incited an insurrection that killed 5 people last week. Just love it.

I take this job home, you headless frump!

I am not a deep Ableton Live expert, but I have done some diving and feel comfortable using chunks of its feature set. They’re time investments for real.

Chickadee on the railing, stealing some sunflower seeds out from under the squirrels. A scrub jay was there earlier. Mostly, though, the squirrels get them all and I am beginning to resent this.

Except that they *are* super-cute.

Legit Nazis attacked our nation's capitol. My Jewish friends are rightfully freaked out (as is most of the country). @github: "both sides". Giant mistake by @Microsoft.
