I'm guessing it's due to having recorded my profession as dev that my FB ads are so deliriously boring: no-code tooling, pitching advice, crypto blather

I like this guy's aesthetic... slow sampled deep house with a lot of rock'n'roll/funk wisdom... and it really pumps

Does emotional intelligence actually make a relationship great? Wouldn't mind seeing some data on this dating profile staple

I just practised "Yardbird Suite", the Charlie Parker tune, for the first time in two years and it made me so happy. I love bebop

Why do retro FPSs keep going for procgen when there's a massive and growing pool of mappers who know precisely how to make fun single player gameplay? I'm talmbout the Quake and Doom communities of course

Every jar of chicory drink granules I've ever bought has ended up unusable due to wicking up moisture and turning into a toffee like hard mass. There seems to be no way out. I've tried putting in silica gel. Leaving as much of the foil at the top helps but it never lasts. Maybe a muslin bag of rice??

There's a mild thrill of perversion in having one's usual cup of tea even when the weather's hot

I know it's gonna be a good library book when a) it's by Iris Murdoch and b) the protagonist is described as "a genius and a fervent Marxist" in the blurb

This just made my wkend! I'm isolating with Covid but with these cheapo adapters I can do a long-anticipated laptop to laptop lofi recording/resampling project! Gonna feed drum sounds out of a tracker, through some guitar pedals and back into Reaper

The world needs to invest in the productive economy. Surviving the climate emergency will require a vast mobilization of capital to electrify our transportation, produce batteries, retrofit or replace housing stock, house tens (or hundreds) of millions of climate refugees, restore habitats and clean up waste.

The finance sector doesn't make things. It doesn't grow food. It doesn't teach your kids. It doesn't heal your injuries. It doesn't house you. It doesn't clothe you. Finance for its own sake makes nothing - except money. Our future survival depends on radical, mass-scale material production. So long as the finance sector is running the show, all we'll get is a casino.

#OtD 17 May 1935 the Nazis banned the teaching of Esperanto for "weakening… national character". Esperanto is a constructed international auxiliary language which was particularly popular at the time with workers' groups and revolutionaries.

It's standard for storage services (Onedrive, Wetransfer, GSuite) to output zip archives when you download a folder. I'd love a "Download and Unzip to Path" one-click option in my browser that opened a dialogue box to select the path. Doesn't seem to be any Firefox extension for that

Many fine restaurants buy their meats from me. Have you visited Lucky Money, for instance? It is below the market, in the mall.

Just learned about the tag #lichenSubscribe, so good!
So here’s the ones I know, if you are into plants, fungi and symbioses of the two:
- #florespondence
- #mosstodon
- #sporespondence
- #lichenSubscribe
- I’ve used #veggiespondence for gardening before but not sure if that’s widely used

Any others?

I just realised that the concept of "pocket", usually applied to the sensation of welcoming space in a drum groove, may fit blues/funk *harmony* too. Expect a blog post soon

Listening to some Beastie Boys and Muddy Waters recently... so ill-sounding both, in their different ways. Band sound is such an important thing (with "sound" referring to something irreducible to either rhythm or tone quality)
