About this Episode

Birds and their influence on gaming.

Danny is rocking it in Japanese Duolingo. Alex is deluded about leaderboards.

Books were read and fitness was achieved.

Danny will play e4 someday. Someday.

Music is too loud. But both hosts want a piano real bad. Real bad. It's too bad Alex hates music.

A quote

"Intelligibility in music seems to be impossible without repetition. While repetition without variation can easily produce monotony, juxtaposition of distantly related elements can easily degenerate into nonsense, especially if unifying elements are omitted. Only so much variation as character, length and tempo required should be admitted: the coherence of motive-forms should be emphasized." - Arnold Schoenberg, Fundamentals of Musical Composition
