Hello Japanese friends! I hope you are all well. I have recently visited Tokyo and loved it. I would like to explore Japanese culture more. What books in literature, what movies and manga and animations would you recommend for me to check out?

こんにちは日本の友達!私はあなたがすべてうまくいることを願っています。私は最近東京を訪れ、それを愛していました。私は日本の文化をもっと探求したいと思っています。文学の本は、私がチェックアウトするためにどのような映画や漫画やアニメーションをお勧めしますか?

A celebration of the 911 emergency system tedium.co/2017/06/20/911-emerg

Tedium is the greatest, consistently aligned with my interests.

Voices of the First World War: The Imperial War Museum collected a huge archive over the years of interviews and recordings of people who fought in the first world war, starting right after the war. They collect these on a topic (from 'the first gas attack' to 'how they passed time in the trenches') #WWI #Podcast #History

If you are into #history and knowing your enemy shit, this is an excellent biography on Goebbels translated from German: nytimes.com/2015/05/17/books/r

Next year i will start my MA in #History of #Technology. So, my father got a #diploma in #agriculture #engineering like 25 years ago and told me last fall that he had taken classes about the History of Agriculture. Right now i try to find out if his #university still gives that lectures and if i can attend them. That would be a very interesting surprise for him.

"the #left is not this, it is not that, it is this instead"

well, that might be your wish or your wibbly definition, but it is at least historically incorrect and not reflecting this, does not help the term either.

beside that, talk about what you want, what #practical actions you want to do and save your energy fighting for a wobble-term which never cared about its usage and do something useful (or get at least some definitions and terms right and their context.)

So, I'm Alex and I'm horribly awkward at these sorts of things. I get paid to play with the railway, and don't get paid to co-mod a UK #trans advice blog. I also enjoy #books, #history (of the regular folk), and occasionally attempt to take photographs.

Shift work has destroyed my concept of time, so musing at 2am will probably be a regular occurrence.

The #antimasonicparty is destroying our #democracy #politics #hashtags

okay but seriously the first 3rd party in the US was the anti-freemasons who were convinced they were trying to rule the country and I have heard worse reasons for forming political parties

«All the people who live in northeastern #Queens, or Co-op City in the #Bronx, and all of #Suffolk and a lot of #Nassau County, they’re condemned to use #cars. It’s not easy to use mass #transit. #Moses came along with his incredible vision, and vision not in a good sense. It’s like how he built the bridges too low.

[...] Moses didn’t want poor people, particularly poor people of color, to use Jones Beach, so they had legislation passed forbidding the use of buses on parkways.

Then he had this quote [...] “Legislation can always be changed. It’s very hard to tear down a bridge once it’s up.” So he built 180 or 170 bridges too low for buses.»
