irregular notice that the Satanic Temple and the Church of Satan are very different.

Satanic Temple are the ones using weaponized first amendment protections to promote anti-conservative political goals.

Church of Satan is stodgy and libertarian and generally gross.

THis looks good. "Tomita will be showing new works at Maho Kubota Gallery in Tokyo from Oct 18 – Nov 22, 2019. This exhibition, simply titled Tokyo, will also include several landscape paintings similarly rendered with meticulous care using thick slabs of oil paint."

E and I have a couple of his smaller paintings and we love them.

There's a good question for the #fediverse:

What, if anything at all, is still being made at heirloom-worthy quality yet targets affordability for "middle class" families?

What could you purchase today anticipating handing it down to future generations (and having them not thinking the acquisition sucks)?

The nice thing about burning brush is that you pretty much have to sit on your ass contemplatively for a while, but it totally counts as meaningful yard work. Plus you get to poke a fire with a stick. 🔥

"OK. Put a pig on it. Ears a little bigger. Bigger. OK. Now a rainbow coming out of its snout. Good. Needs something else. I got it! Another different rainbow coming out of its little curly tailed piggy butt. Nailed it."

The first time I heard this it was a goddamn revelation. Still love it.

I finally got the right bolts for my #leverpress and got it assembled tonight. What a clever piece of engineering. It is a little bit large but for a total cost of about $30 you could do a lot worse for #printmaking.

I did a couple of tests with water-based ink - one on a Speedball "Speedy Carve" block (the soft stuff that looks like pink eraser) and one on my bow tie block from the other day.

“We all carry trace fossils within us -- the marks that the dead and the missed leave behind. Handwriting on an envelope; the wear on a wooden step left by footfall; the memory of a familiar gesture by someone gone, repeated so often it has worn a groove in both air and mind …”

My dad just gave me id and pw to access his online medical chart. Interested to see some things, but not sure how I feel about this. So, haven't logged in yet....
