Just put it on my todo list, "start an anarchist bookshop and coffee house that's definitely not in our prim downtown." What about you?
marketing, policy, parenting
But look at that failure of imagination - I challenge you, and me, to try to picture a world where advertising to five year olds just does not happen, because we couldn't possibly. Oh how much would have to be fundamentally different. (Maybe on the scale of ecosystems or bug colonies having constitutional rights? Idk. Certainly un-American.)
Reminded of a very surreal 3 hour car ride in Brasil being introduced to Os Paralamas Do Sucesso on cassette upon meeting my friend's mom's boyfriend - friend and mom rode in another car, so between us we had 25 overlapping words of English and Portuguese and 25 minutes of meeting before diving into this nostalgic musical trip. No great meaning found, just good natured making the best we can.
@sixohsix i'm starting to think that the heathcliff artist is one of the great artists of the neo-dada movement tbh

Seems its time to begin the every other day check of https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ - we know fall has arrived when it's no longer potentially interesting.
Opinions on the lightest/least blogging choice to install on #yunohost, any step up from jekyll-ites?
"Yet, take away the badges worn by the dozen officers who clubbed us, and the backing of the justice system well versed in controlling Black bodies, and we have all the elements of a hate crime."
This book gets stronger as it pushes up against today, but it's mostly about systems in our heads, not cops.
After 3.5 years I have cracked another phone screen. The cost to have someone else repair it is a #pinephone , the cost of doing it myself is no doubt greener than a new phone, but involves purchasing a number of effectively single-use tools. Bleh. For now, keep using it til I get a cut.
Re-reading my notes on "The Great Derangement" by Amitav Ghosh, it opens with discussion of fiction and probability, that the modern novel is fixated on "believability" and therefore modern mundane gradualism over the mythic. This has to work extra hard to conceal the exceptional unlikely moments that drive narrative, and that we need for meaning (and survival after global carbon consumption economy).
First ripe tomato of the year tonight, a yellow cherry, that unbeatable fresh in season flavor even in the little wedge cut to share with the family. It's going to be a good summer. #gardening
