my computer’s got a problem with me

Is this how everybody else deals with this? In this example, a climactic scene from AMC’s Breaking Bad, as viewed on netflix.

The medium is the message, after all, and the medium is inescapably this computer nowadays, and so, Emmet Otter sings to me from youtube.

Fun fact: youtube offered to show us Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas in full for $2.99, which I didn’t realize that youtube did. However, Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas 1977 was free. However, this mac couldn’t connect to icloud because of a problem with the apple id. Oh well, does anybody have a positive relationship with icloud, this abstract superstructure that haunts every movement I make with my apple product? Jennifer Lawrence sure as fuck does not. Olivia Pope uses a non-apple phone.

I’m sure there’s a simple, reasonable way to figure out what my password is, to stop getting alerts, but I don’t care, and apple cannot make me. Even if it interrupts whatever I am doing every whenever I am doing it. Like watching Lisa Kudrow’s mind-blowing Comeback.

Or figuring out who did it

Or contemplating the American dream

Or, again, contemplating Walter White

Or jake Ballard insisting that one day, again someday, we will live again in the sun.
