Thank you, Daft Punk

Is there a more recognizable sound than Daft Punk in electronic music? Not for me.

  • These two are the reason I bought a talkbox for my guitar
  • Kanye West’s Stronger is one of the most unique Hip hop songs of the 2000s thanks to the sample
  • Madeon’s Pop Culture mashed up 30+ songs into a Daft Punk-themed medley that every music lover would recognize from the early internet days

Thanks for everything, Daft Punk. Here’s to you inspiring countless generations for the foreseeable future 🍻

Apple’s M1 Chips

I’ve called out Intel’s chips for holding back Apple’s MacOS computers since 2016, but I always thought the solution would come from AMD, not Apple themselves.

I’m not an expert on CPU architectures, but if I had to put money on it, I’d bet a decent sum that the x86 architecture will lose a significant portion of its market share over the next ten years. So much so that ARM will be the leader in desktop computers by then.

Dave Chapelle on SNL

Remember that for the first time in the history of America, the life expectancy of white people is dropping. Because of heroin, because of suicide. All these white people out there that feel that anguish, that pain, that man, they think nobody cares. Maybe they don’t. Let me tell you something. I know how that feels. I promise you, I know how that feels. You’re a police officer. Every time you put your uniform on, you feel like you’ve got a target on your back. You’re appalled by the ingratitude that people have when you would risk your life to save them. Oh, man. Believe me. Believe me, I know how that feels. Everyone knows how that feels. But here’s the difference between me and you. You guys hate each other for that. And I don’t hate anybody. I just hate that feeling. That’s what I fight through. That’s what I suggest you fight through. You got to find a way to live your life. Got to find a way to forgive each other. Got to find a way to find joy in your existence in spite of that feeling. And if you can’t do that — come get this nigga’s lessons.

Casey’s Back

Every vlog I’ve seen has been inspired by Casey’s format. I can’t think of anyone more influential to media consumption the past five years.
