Pinned toot

Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.

Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop

if I were a good deed, I would simply go unpunished

The Universe is fantastically intricate, breathtakingly beautiful, and unimaginably vast. Beauty and wonder are all around us. Try not to let yourself lose sight of that.

I went to pull out some invasive plants, but as I approached the birds started yelling at me. Right in the center of a cluster of Dames Rocket was a beautiful nest with eggs still unhatched. I left it alone. This is a true story but also a metaphor.

just misread a hashtag as Creative Commune and thought it was a new copyleft thing 😄

doubt anyone remembers but a while back i saw a hawk in the yard and said i hoped to get a zoom lens and learn how to use the camera better so i could get better pictures next time. well, this morning i spotted one by the creek! i'll post pics later if they're any good. what a handsome bird though!!

@redoak

Then you will be not just a red oak, but a poet tree.

one day i'm gonna figure out how to explain how i feel about shit and then it's over for y'all

(not you, but the generic y'all, you understand)

fwiw, the shortcoming is because of feelings, not because the record is hard to recommend, it's very good

i tried pretty hard to have something useful to say in recommendation of this album, but came up short. at any rate, please enjoy this set of solo guitar renditions of old songs:

"We know crime will cease only when men are taught to do good, because it makes them happier to do right than wrong. We know that if passing laws would have prevented crime or made men better, that we would all be angels by now.

We say: Tum the law factories into schools and place scientists in them to teach the truths of human solidarity, love and fraternity and make these possible by abolishing monopoly in the means of life, and mankind will quickly develop that which is best, noblest and purest in his nature."
