I've been experimenting with gluten free flour lately. When it cools off I want to try to bake a pizza, which I suspect will be more of a cheesy flat bread kinda thing.

Somali music is hard to come by unless you're in Minneapolis.

Most -- not all, but most -- of tonight's selections leave a lot to be desired in the sonic clarity category. But not in the Too Awesome for Regular People Words department

You could possibly find some in Minneapolis, since there has been a sizeable population living there for decades ... but otherwise, I'd recommend the Sweet as Broken Dates comp, and search Bandcamp for the tag "somalia"

  Wed. 6/12/19 9:13pm Dean:

We know now that the world is more vast and intricate than we did at the time of Diderot and his Encyclopedie. It's impossible for any one of us to know "everything." So of course there will be a "first time" we hear of one thing or another.

Having said that, I do not subscribe to the notion that we suffer from an "information overload." The amount of information is, always has been, in strict equilibrium, no more, no less. How can it be otherwise?

  Wed. 6/12/19 9:45pm Dean:

I agree, TDK60, but I've noticed it for some time, i.e., decades. Could be a function of what I read, of course. Nowadays, it seems clear that since demand-side pressure to comply with grammar and style isn't there, then supply-side will relax.
