@Shufei @lazarski This is my periodic reminder that Superman was originally conceived of as an immigrant socialist hero of the downtrodden, created by a Jewish writer-artist duo.

RT That's the idea. But it also means there won't *be* alternative voices in the music sphere beyond Pitchfork / NPR / etc. soon. Everyone's far too burned out and sick of being poor. Meanwhile, ad dollars continue to go straight to our content overlords in Silicon Valley.


the alternate present in which netflix is just one of many portals to a vast and singular public media repository, as long ago people realized intellectual property was bogus

Thank you!

Wow, i'm so impressed how ElementaryOS is running on my macbook. Everything works well and the tools I need are easily installable. I'm super happy with this OS so far :tealheart:

I've listened to Bad Religion's latest album _Age Of Unreason_ a few times since it's release.

It's good, it's definitely good. It hits all the right notes as far as pacing and production, but for some reason it's just not particularly "catchy" and making me want to come back for more.

and since i'm posting music, here's a fun thing. first song i ever made when i found out you could make music on computers, back when fl studio was called fruity loops. heavily influenced by tones on tail.

spent a bunch of time doing drum maintenance
+ 18 yamaha
- reattached aux mount (better bracing, more padding)
- added bike bell
- (need tuning)
+ 20 painted
- reinforced strap clips
- tuned
- replaced 10" splash with 13" heavy bottom hihat (MUCH louder)

all in all pretty successful drum tech
- tuned…

♲ some people will no doubt use self-hosted media platforms for that, but whether or not *most* people will do so remains to be seen.

Right now, I'm using Funkwhale for two distinct use-cases at the same time:

1. Host a media library of files that I've paid for, which I've maintained for years. Some of these are tracks that cannot easily be found on services such as Spotify.

2. Host self-produced music to distribute freely to other Funkwhale instances.

The brilliant part here is that users can have multiple music libraries which have different permission sets. My purchased media is entirely private, meaning only I can see it. The music I make is in a public library that everyone else can see. All media from both libraries are seamlessly visible to me in the same player.

Caged Cage -- a Grundgestalt Xenochrony

Classic algorithmic generative process described in, with as input string "aaccdeegg", coupled with the orbits of the finite-state automaton of the Beggar-my-neighbour games in packs "cagedcage" .. "ccaaggeed" ("a" being the zero card).

The guitar track is only made udible around 1m12s and then fade out.

The penultimate note played by the percussions has been halved.

Req for role models 

If I posted text posts about anything I cared about on facebook the algorithm would not show it to almost anyone thats even following me. It would literally just drop off the radar and be forgotten. I post a random thought here and people from around the world actually have a chance to respond. That is powerful. That cant be underplayed. The fact that we dont have to worry whether our messages have financial viability makes our ideas stronger. Our voices ring.

Just booked 33 Focusmate sessions for next week. Let's get this thing DONE.
