yeah he's totally that guy who'll just listen to anyone tell stories even if they're not particularly exciting ones or anything. not a bad thing, just... not exactly what you would expect out of a popular interviewer

if there was some kind of "joe rogan experience abridged" where it was basically just cut down to the interviewees talking about poo poo I would probably be inclined to listen to some of it. for some reason though rogan himself just... is grating to me. like listening to an untrained, inexperienced streamer, except this dude's been in broadcasting for like 30 years

I think that unpolished every-man style is why so many people like him so much. it isnít anywhere near as grating as NPR just uncritically listening to republicans arrogantly lie to their faces before asking a new unrelated question.

you guys don't seem that worried, cspam is pretty gloom and doom about what's going to happen

cspam is filled with people who had a tenuous grasp on their daily lives at best before all this happened.

my friend tried to get me to listen to joe rogan once and the podcast started off with a very uncomfortable shill for fleshlights so I turned it off

if you say, "ok google, resume podcast." it will start playing joe rogan experience even if you have another podcast app open and paused. makes me glad google knows so little about me I guess?

anyways here's a decent take https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/08/my-joe-rogan-experience/594802/

I still think that if you listen to an alt-right shithead spouting nonsense and a far left socialist speaking universally known but unsaid truths and you come away liking the alt-right more, youíre already an irredeemable fuckhead.

joe Rogan is actually impartial because he is incapable of not being that way due to brain damage and drugs.

I liked rogan's interview with james hetfield from metallica because hetfield got totally fuckin sober in the early 2000s (and even goes back into rehab voluntarily if he feels it coming back to him) and watching rogan try to parse the totally happy experiences of someone who's 100% drug and alcohol free and committed to it is like watching someone realize that capitalists aren't your friend at the same time as they're learning that santa isn't real and there is a word for that feeling you have after you wake up night after night from having dreams in which you're inexplicably a girl

my level of panic is like 90 degrees out of phase with the general public. last week I was super worried and getting more worried quickly, while most people didn't give a gently caress yet. now everyone's panic seems to be escalating and personally it now seems like it won't be that bad overall.

so this economy now has this huge swath of people getting laid off soon or no work to do

and this other swath of people who work in virus-affected sectors who are completely swamped and understaffed (anything to do with health care, logistics, delivery, etc)

and we're def in a recession (though it's not official until retrospectively looking back 2 quarters later)


computer touching is somewhere in both worlds, some firms are gonna layoff and some firms are super-well positioned (eg those working in home delivery or teleconference stuff)

Everybody has to go through a process to assimilate what's happening. The more aware you were about covid I think the earlier you got your panic attacks done with. Most people still have a long way to go.

so one thing I've learned is that news organizations really really care about having their display ads work

like one time I broke a lot of doubleclick and there were a bunch of articles about it that I'm sure were just thrilling to everyday readers

there's a bag of shredded money beside my office desk to commemorate the occasion. There was a tradition of passing it on to whoever caused a big outage but I decided to just leave it on display instead (some people might not take it in stride)

five years of this and now I'm the senior person on the team

our HR department has really ramped up their workplace morale efforts, which i suppose is a nice idea, but i'm just finding them patronizing and sanctimonious and have really started to disengage from their programs. the work itself is still fine, is secure for the short term and i like my colleagues so i'm pretty lucky overall i guess.

"have you heard about this deer wasting disease that deer get? is it anything like that? my friend hunts and he says there's a really bad deer virus out there."
"oh man i saw this picture of two kids, one with smallpox and one who was vaccinated and it was like, wow, one is totally sick and the other one is totally fine"

one of my favorite things to get in the mail is my stateís conservation magazine. that chronic wasting disease and the steps to identify and contain it is hosed, like the bad news section in otherwise the coolest periodical I get.

yeah it always bums me out when i get the pamphlet with my hunting license that explains what i have to look for in the deer.

the one thing that worries me is "does the deer get too close or is the shot too easy?" and its like maaaan you are making me second guess the poo poo out of myself.
