The League Against Cruel Sports and Revive have published a report called “Calculating Cruelty” about the grouse shooting war in #Scotland 

A huge majority of traps fail to comply with best practice guidelines, and almost a half of the animals killed are “non target species” such as hedgehogs, dippers and mistle thrush.

What a slaughter.

Some I watched and enjoyed recently.
Series: Kakushigoto, The Promised Neverland, given.
Films: Summer Wars, The Case of Hana & Alice.

Despite all that's been happening in the world lately, I was actually relieved I wasn't a character in .

Finally caught up watching . I still had the notes I wrote down after finishing season 1 in December 2017. Even with my notes, it took several episodes to remember how some characters were connected. I'm actually glad I forgot about it and watched season 2 and 3 right after the other when it was all fresh in my memory.
Loved it and highly recommend the show if you're keen on discussing time travel theories and enjoy intense and dark stories.

Any rehearsal studios currently open in ? Pirate Studios reopened in Glasgow but not their studio in Edinburgh. Banana Row still looks closed. Music Base as well. I really miss playing the .

Oh well, I did the 1) and the author reacted almost immediately. Yay!

1) Do I submit issues on the original, commit on my fork and open a PR referring to each issue on the original repository?

2) Do I just go and make all my changes on my fork, and not bother with the original repository?

I found a small script to help manage my Photos library with just one commit on GitHub. I found a issue so I forked it and also improved it for my own usage. But I'm not sure how I can or if I should contribute to the original script. It has no license and the user had no activity for 3 years.

Oh nooo, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 has been delayed again. It was scheduled for last week. Now hopefully before the end of the year?

Feral released non-Windows versions of Life is Strange 2 last month... I've played a bit last night and enjoyed it a lot! Really excited about the new characters and story. Let's see how many times DONTNOD manage to make me cry.

So I went to a zero-waste shop for the first time today in . I spilled some washing-up liquid and ground cinnamon in a very clumsy attempt to fill the containers. That felt like being a kid trying to make a cake for the first time. Guess I'll do better next time!

Another day in another day of nearly getting run over by a taxi.

Got my ticket so see Dir en grey in February! Anyone going to see in London?

Your attention please!

Today is the Dutch #activist and #anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @Jo.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch #asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the #deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.

Read more about this all here:

This is the side of the #Netherlands you don't hear about comrades. So please don't think this country is a free haven. It' s a neo-liberal tax haven, and don't you dare to criticize the state. Of course the Dutch national media is silent about this and that in the same week as a near government coalition conflict about child deportation.

Please boost to show your #solidarity!
