This reenactment of 2001 for the current zeitgeist is truly brilliant:

The adapted version delineates the passing of time through wardrobe rather than age, identifying each phase of the character’s journey with a product of self care or PPE. Tools of private entertainment or self betterment are also used as props, questioning our confidence in products and productivity as anchors during times of uncertainty. Multitasking while #wfh, conjuring guilt or longing with unused exercise equipment, your entire being reduced to a measure of time–these scenes all illustrate the absurd comedy of trying to maintain control during this unprecedented and unpredictable time.

More PHP study today including a bit on databases. I've only ever used a database in the context of WordPress so it was good to take a little time to spin one up and try some test code.
