Everything you need to know about where I live: I'm commuting to work and they just announced special additional trains will be running for the Dropkick Murphy's concert.
I went to my second protest ever today. My first was ~3 weeks ago. I'm 36.

I said I’d talk about Soundcloud Rap, which I’d listened to exactly once. Not my thing. But the death of Lil Peep got to me.
The first thing I thought when I saw him, skinny and with face tattoos, was “Oof, I don’t think this kid’s gonna have a long life.” And, he didn’t.
Lil Peep grew up on Long Island, like I did (although he was about 15 years younger than me), and like my kids are currently. His parents were Ivy League grads, like my wife and I are. His dad is a professor at the same university where my wife teaches.
So it hit close to home, and served as a reminder that you can try as hard as you want, but there’s no way to be Safe.

Speaking of Brazilian jazz, I can never remember “Wave” so I need to look up “Brazilian album with the giraffe on the cover” every time.
Searching for 🇧🇷🦒 doesn’t get you there either.
