Been mulling over Seneca's discussion of the three times in On Shortness of Life, and how the past provides us with a resource we can go back to and enjoy. Wrote a piece about it here medium.com/practical-rationa… #Seneca #Stoicism #Time #Memory #Joy #Pleasure #Advice #Busyness #Stoic

One complex phenomenon in early heavy metal's history is what I call the "Black Sabbath-Deep Purple Nexus", and Scott and I devoted our second session of Classic Metal Class to exploring that. Here's a bit about it and a link to the class video! medium.com/heavy-metal-philo…

I don't know that this is the best of all arguments for Great Books courses, but it's definitely a good one. I'll also add that I don't teach Great Books-model courses, but my students read and engage a lot of primary texts, and the same good applies to those courses too
Imo the best argument for Great Books courses is just that getting to experience them is a pretty sweet cultural good and we should want more people to have access to nice things. I mostly found school pretty excruciatingly dull - woulda been better if I got to read Plato.

Had occasion to recommend this earlier. A lot of people misconstrue Stoicism as saying we should not care about "indifferents". The very person who articulates that distinction is crystal clear that we should prudently care about and use indifferents. invidious.fdn.fr/4ahnDdjI59s

Hit the trifecta this morning, blocking/banning a few jerks on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook Probably time to repost this reminder/advice piece I wrote a while back. You don't owe anyone time, digital space, or a conversation, even if they think you do medium.com/gregory-b-sadler-…

Coming up in a little under an hour!
Session 15 of Classic Metal Class is coming up tomorrow at Noon Central Time! Scott Tarulli and I plan a deeper dive into heavy metal covers of non-metal songs. Which work as covers, which don't? And what makes them metal. Join us! Zoom link here - us02web.zoom.us/j/8575052484…

Starting the day with a grifty email with all the usual schtick: "I love your stuff" (clearly has read/watched none of it). Followed by a pitch to include their content in our/my site or channel that has built its base by years of consistent and competent work.

Interesting that universities consider amenities such as "student experience" stuff (i.e. dorms, concerts, etc.) to be an essential part of their mission and not providing such amenities as...high-quality N95 masks, additional air filters for classrooms, and online accommodations

Well true to form, right? Rand Paul has been spreading covid misinformation the entire pandemic
"An old video has surfaced of Sen. Rand Paul telling students that using spreading misinformation is a 'great tactic'" he used.  share.smartnews.com/xV6tA

@scotttarulli and I decided as we mulled this over that metal covers of songs from genres more removed from metal give a better sense of what makes those covers metal. Examples: Saxon - Ride Like The Wind Tygers of Pan Tang - Love Potion #9 Judas Priest - Diamonds and Rust
