Everytime I come back to Madlib it hits me anew how good he is at... making fat beats youtube.com/watch?v=lw_lwEz_CS

Sigh... I always get unduly upset when I see the kids have broken another newly planted sapling in my suburb

I have never encountered a situation which I felt asked for a crying-with-laughter emoji. I wish there there were more options for subtler degrees of amusement. How about a "supportive eye crinkle" or "close mouthed chuckle"
