i have high hopes that the two of you will find a positive vibration in the future. stars just weren't right.

Yes. and to be fair I tend to gravitate to asexuality because I wank 1500 times a day so anything sexual has kind of gotten boring for me now.

we discussed this a little bit before. young white american men are intimidated by black music, they don't wanna go there. it's something they are scared of getting involved with.
just going back to this for a sec. it's what makes barty interesting isn't it.

I think this uneasiness is somewhat allayed when the immediate company is white, e.g. Jeepfuls of white highschoolers rapping along to Childish Gambino.

i'm saying barty is interesting cos he's of your generation and he's looked around and decided that black music is still the most interesting music around, even though it's politically incorrect of him, in the cultural moment we are living in, to go there.

I’d say it’s the most interesting and relevant, to my knowledge, and I wouldn’t quite say it’s politically incorrect for white affluent people to listen to it, just that it is unnatural and questionable for such people to act like they relate to it. Only, when it is only affluent white people listening to it, often nobody thinks or wants to question it.

yeah that's not really the case with what i mean. dean blunt would be an example of a black artist who mainly white people listen to, but it doesn't go unquestioned. but maybe you mean something else.

Distributed ledger technology? Consensus mechanisms? Boring?

The basic idea of distributed ledgers, merkle trees etc is kind of interesting, but all the endless explanations of the obscure tweaks to fractally niche details of different coin technologies that you get when crypto nerds need convince themselves / others that they're making some sort of big-brain moves and not just buying magic beans are boring as fuck. It's like five-year-old giving you a three hour explanation of all the made up details of all their imaginary friends. It's like excruciatingly bad fanfiction for economics. Horrifying.
