Okay, seriously, hands up if you'd ever even *heard of* Logan Paul before his Suicide Forest video

I like many things about Masto. But what I like most is that out-of-the-box, left-brain things happen often here. Like stumbling upon someone who understands a relatively obscure French film from 1996 based on an even more obscure 1916 French film, a guy who builds supercomputers as a hobby, a subculture that publishes poetry using the long-deceased, now-revived Gopher system.
And I could go on with the whimsical, and the unbounded creativity that emerges when the profit motive is removed.
#RIP Robert Givens (1918-2017) Show more
Bob was one of the last of the Golden Age of Warner Bros. cartoons. As a layout & background artist, he drew the Bugs Bunny 1940 model sheet used for Tex Avery's "A Wild Hare". His career also included stints with Disney (including Snow White) and Hanna-Barbera.
He gave interviews well into his 90's and readily shared his wealth of knowledge of animation history.

#CurrentMusic Peter Hammill - "Vision" Show more
I played this for Ember last night, because it expressed something I couldn't express myself. Namely, this pic from McConnell's Mill on 1 October of this year.
"I have a vision of you, locked inside my head;
It creeps upon my mind, and warms me in my bed...
A vision shimmering, shifting
Moving in false firelight;
A vision of a vision,
Protecting me from fear at night,
As the seasons roll on, and my love stays strong."
