"The project of Public Life was to be a convergence process for a dispersed spectrum of an extra-cultural, to construct a reality, not to represent any reality. A sort of convergence through all its own fictitious commodities rolled into one (akin to the land, the money and the labour of Public Life). What that would be could not be formulated at the onset."


using keyboard (cursor keys) to scroll on the simple interface of mastodon does not work well

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

It oughta be illegal for any corporation to purchase a "single family" home. Only families or individuals should have a legal right to purchase them. Bare fucking minimum.

“The Signal for Help (or the Violence at Home Signal for Help) is a single-handed gesture that can be used by an individual to alert others that they feel threatened and need help over a video call, or in-person.”

FOSS audio apps to have in your toolkit (which in my experience fly under the radar):

- Zita's Aliki - for generating impulse responses. (The interface is a bit opaque if you don't know the process but there's a manual on their website, worth taking the time to learn)
- Sonic Visualiser - Great tool for analyzing recordings (like, for instance, IRs)
- Spek - for quickly generating those iconic spectrogram images

Anyway on this #AutismAcceptanceMonth I’m here to remind you that autistic people are almost never bullied for being autistic, but rather for being “weird.” Autistic people express themselves differently, use different language, and experience things like gender and sexuality differently than neurotypical people. Keep this in mind next time you’re rolling your eyes at someone you find embarrassing online

"You took a moment when your child could’ve learned an important lesson about how to respect the broad diversity of gender expression, and reduced it to a tangential and less important lesson about manners in public. Furthermore, by demonstrating your own discomfort with the situation, you made your kids uncomfortable too — inadvertently furthering the culture of stigma and discomfort that surrounds gender-nonconforming people."
