What even is a "freeloader"? Who gets to decide that the activities of another person are not "worthy" for the society? Are artists freeloaders? Are parents playing with their children freeloaders? Are lovers freeloaders? Travelers? Storytellers? Clowns? Philosophers? Grumpy old men loudly complaining about others not doing what they should?

Reminder, being angry is a valuable emotion that tells you it is time to change what you have been doing and act in your and other people’s interest to feel happy

I believe people have an inalienable right to 1) do whatever the fuck they want with their own body and 2) to violently uphold that right.

Microsoft's Github Copilot is disregarding Free Software licenses and will be happily selling parts of your GPL code against your will! Woo!

As the author of this article says - free software should be dependant on free software architecture - I recommend codeberg.org as an open-source alternative to Github.
Sadly Github is no longer a platform that can be trusted.

Programming is a social act, but capitalist work is an inherently anti-social endeavor. That's why every company keeps rewriting the same shit over and over again

Also, we did remember to add a verbose description of the song, thanks to @openmastering 's recent post ;-)

We've done a little pre-release of our first single "A hole in my heart".
It is a song about the pain that comes with adhering to a scientific worldview and the attempt to make that pain bearable.

irrevocably fucking up the environment

I know a solution to exploitation of musicians problem!

1
The sale or commercial enterprise of any musical activity is considered criminal. It is absolutely forbidden.

2
Those producing or helping in production of sonic art have a guaranteed basic life needs covered: place to stay, free electricity and Internet and heating and food.

3
All music is automatically in public domain. there's no concept of intellectual property

#Vitalium is a fork from the #audioplugin #vital. It's meant to deal with various licencing (I think? @falktx@mastodon.falktx.com ) issues.
Well, it's the same high-quality #wavetable #synth, most probably one of the best synth around at the moment.

It's linux only and you'll get it when you install distrho-ports.

getting older, creative work 

tfw you're in your late 30s and thinking about how many of your favourite works of art were done by people significantly younger than you

especially when your own creative medium is music

i also wonder about how many people got sucked into the machine and abandoned their creative ambitions altogether, which happened to me in my 20s

anyway, make time for that shit no matter how old you are or how much you feel like it's a young person's game

seit ich statt "fachkräftemangel" immer lese "mangelnde bereitschaft, vernünftige löhne zu zahlen", ergeben viele nachrichten wieder sinn, z.b.

"wegen der zunehmend mangelnden bereitschaft, vernünftige löhne zu zahlen, bringen politiker und verbände ein freiwilliges jahr im handwerk ins gespräch"

Toller Text!
ÖPNV nützt nicht viel, wenn nicht das Auto zurückgedrängt wird. Bequemlichkeit hindert Menschen daran, umzusteigen – selbst wenn die Haltestelle vor der Tür ist. Wer Pkw abschafft, sollte eine Prämie bekommen und kostenlos ÖPNV fahren dürfen.“ taz.de/9-Euro-Ticket-fuer-den-

Hello! We are Convolution, a decentralised band, mostly based in Germany. Our profile looks a bit empty at the moment, the artwork is still in progress and the ETA for the first EP is in September. We are going to upload a single or two during the next weeks though. Stay tuned :)
