I’m a TV director working the shift. For fun I like retro PCs, old video games, and general nerdery. Which is you know why I set up my own Mastodon server lol.

@ValerieMars @barevalley

Commercial: "... people assigned female at birth..."

Dad: "Why don't they just say women?"

Me: "Because some women are assigned male at birth."

D: "Why?"

M: "Some are born with a penis."

D: "That happens to women?"

M: "Remember Sophia from OITNB? The actress, Laverne Cox, is a woman who was born with a penis."

D: "Oh. [pause] Yeah, that makes sense."

M: "Congratulations, you're ahead of 99% of the population."

Both and are trending this morning... Thankfully both still alive.

Time to go across the hall and direct 6a & 7a!

. from the other room: “Igor is next if you want to watch”

Good to see…,, AND

@violetblue you ever feel like you’re the only one who takes things seriously still? (Hoody from @vkc’s collection lol)

@vkc so I’ve gotten a lot of good comments about this today at the station. Only 1 from an IT person lol. (And yes I still have a mask on at work unless I’m by myself.)

Time to direct the noon on

@vkc Debian!!! Nice. I run that on my desktop. And servers.

So when are you gonna cover the “local” Linux distro aka the oldest active distro… Slackware?

Seriously, Patrick Volderking was a student at Moorhead State when he birthed the distro.

They lifted the mask mandate again. Oh well. I’ve so far avoided getting sick (knock on wood) so I’m gonna keep my mask on this time ‘round. At least until I see consistent drops in the numbers in the Cities. cc: @violetblue

Rolling old school on the 9 today.

A bunch of the monitors in the control room & studio were acting up this morning... The floor director and I determined it's because it's Friday the 13th and Mercury is still in retrograde.

The primary complaints about Gen Z ultimately boil down to "They refuse to work shitty jobs for shit pay" and "They're too nice to people who are different". Which says just as much about the quality of the older generations as the quality of the new one.

You know, it’s not but it’s as good as you can get up here in Minnesota without resorting to that ehm chain. The peppers coulda had more flavor and the pickles were meh but at least they didn’t try to put ketchup on them… (That happened to me once in Wisconsin.)

Good morning California friends!! Y'all seem to be represented on the news feeds this morning. LOL.

Tell me you work in the Midwest, without telling me you work in the Midwest. I'll go first:
