"My Neighbor Totoro: "Tonari no Totoro" 5 cello cover by Jeremy Tai
The piece "Tonari no Totoro", composed by the one and only Joe Hisaishi, is a mashup of the major themes in the movie "My Neighbor Totoro"."
A wholesome story three goblins leaving their village in search for a better life.
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Related: I couldn’t post this without thinking “oh is this another one of those things you saw on the Internet and reworked your memories (or lack thereof, in this case 😆) to fit? more mental health cyberchrondia?” Glad I talked to my therapist about this recently; she set me straight on this front.
My brain is exploding after playing with https://github.com/nakst/flip. I've been looking for years for a simple pedagogical OS that boils things down to their essence and is yet easy to get running on any computer.
I've always had a question in my mind about how to bootstrap the OS. I knew about BIOS but vaguely considered it "cheating" when compared to the "purer" way of working within the processor's ISA. But I'm starting to realize that BIOS is _part of the ISA_.
Mu will soon drop Linux. Watch.
The little socket is an 8-bit bus (or 5 lines + SPI bus) for external devices as well as initial programming. I tried programming it through that and it worked first try! :D
