I'm so happy to share the link to our brand new , !

You can listen on the page, or with your preferred podcast client.

There's also text transcriptions, show notes, and a proper explanation of the term 'kazumpet'.

I hope you enjoy the first episode, and share the link anywhere that might enjoy hearing from a couple of clowns embarassing themselves with a microphone.

Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

Join us tonight for the video chat!

I'll be there practicing juggling and working on my handstands starting at 8pm UTC-5, and I'd definitely appreciate the company.

From MARCcold on birbsite:

"I do not want a smart home, I want a HOME OF FOOLS.

There's no point in my refrigerator getting ideas above its station.

Your job, refrigerator, is literally to chill. You are not a hopeful laptop waiting for its big break."

😂 😂

mh, processing, discalculia thoughts 

So, when I was a kid, I imagined that all of the arabic numerals had personalities and interpersonal relationships. Key to this was that every pair of numbers that added up to 10 were 'best friends'. While I couldn't recall how much 7+3 was (when it was just math), I did know that 3 and 7 were friends, that none of the other numbers liked 7 very much, so, oh! that means the answer there is 10!

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.


If you arrest a mime, do you have to tell him he has the right to remain silent?

I started my day lying in bed trying to ignore a surprising aggressive water feature. It seems that today my home was scheduled for an unscheduled power washing.

Fortunately the water stayed on the outside. :)

Superstition, data collection, metadata 

With folklore, folks used to be cautious about what to do with hair and nail clippings. As those could give a witch or sorcerer power over you.

We have this now with our electronic clippings, we give our clippings to social networks and that gives a whole heap of power to them and to the buyers of that data who can then analyse it.

There's an analogy for you. 😏

I absolutely LOVE this Brian Eno quote a friend posted on FB

Today's proof that I'm slowly turning into my best primate self:

I grabbed a banana, and managed to peel the tops off the entire bunch.

Hey #Fosstodon, does anyone here know of a beginning developer, in need, that could use a #Linux laptop gratis? I have a Starlabs Laptop IV that I don't use. Please boost for visibility.

It's Friday night and that means it's time for the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour!
Come and hang out with some clowns and friends, leave the "real world" outside and relax.
#circusInPlace after (and we'll run late into the night)

I love how in Watership Down, the writer made up words for the rabbits to use to talk about things about their environment.

Hrududu: An onomatopoeic term that refers to any motor vehicle. A tractor, car or any motorvehicle.

Tharn: Petrified with fear, i.e. "deer in headlights".

Hrair: A great many; an uncountable number; any number greater than four.

Like a delightful cafe with a built in sneeze guard, the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour returns to the video chat!

Join the clowns and their online friends starting at 7pm UTC-5 for a cuppa, and then hang around as we spend the night practicing juggling, handstands, and other circus skills.

Defying gravity can be lonely work. The company is deeply appreciated.

Midweek clown time!!
#circusInPlace has begun :)
I know there will be handstand practice, and someone icing a pair of wrists, but what else will happen depends on you!
Come hang out and bring whatever you're working on :)


Good people doing interesting things in NYC you might enjoy:
