"The phenomenon we’re living through isn’t about partisan politics. The central problem is the speech landscape has been almost fully privatized, with the overwhelming majority of people getting information via a handful of key companies[...]But who was kicked off Facebook, Apple, and YouTube was less important than the what and how: unaccountable, unelected private executives making major decisions about who gets to speak in a 100% non-transparent, unappealable process."

"There are times when powers of repression and censorship are aimed more at the left and times when they are aimed more at the right, but it is neither inherently a left-wing nor a right-wing tactic. It is a ruling class tactic, and it will be deployed against anyone perceived to be a dissident to ruling class interests and orthodoxies no matter where on the ideological spectrum they reside.“

Happy to me!

A re-: My 1st computer was a TRS-80. But it wasn't cool to be a nerd then, so I became a drummer and made a living at that for 10yrs, cruiseship bars for 5. Now I do for . Along the way I came back to the computer and learned to run my own servers for my website and and do my own and to reclaim power through pretty much everything. Finally escaped Win for just last year ✊ btw lol

As I've previously reported, the Department of Homeland Security's new definition of "domestic extremist" includes not only anti-government groups on the right but also anti-establishment left-wing groups such as animal rights and environmental activists:

Did you know Owncast supports the Raspberry Pi for hardware accelerated video encoding?

We're testing out some big chat updates for the next release of over at live.w0rmh0le.net/ if you want to help poke around!

I haven't mentioned it in a while, but I'm still collecting music videos from independent, underground and lesser-than-mainstream artists to stream on omusictv.stream/. If you have any content you can provide, or know of artists to suggest, please let me know!

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

Crazier than Jewish space lasers.

And real.

"Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely."

"...if in 2004 I had told you that the majority of the GOP voter base would soon be seeing the folly of the Iraq War, becoming skeptical of state surveillance, and beginning to see the need for action to help the poor and working classes, you’d have told me such a thing would transform the country. Take the opportunity. These people are not demons, and they are ready to listen in a way they haven’t in a long, long time."

The shot you never see: breaking it down after her set.

She played harp, sounded like an American Bjork, and it's my first night of that wasn't mine in two years.

Assume a virtue, if you have it not . . . for use almost can change the stamp of nature. -- Hamlet Act 3 Scene 4

Despite getting it directly in the face, that haunted look in her eyes is just how she looks sometimes. She's got Marty Feldman eyes. So she's fine. Still smells a bit. Maybe more than a bit.

My buddy here met her first skunk the other night.

It was also an education for me as I can now tell you that, when a skunk lets one rip, it does not smell like good weed skunk-at-long-distance skunk. It's like hell on earth, distilled essence of late stage capitalism: Burning tires, oil refineries, chemical spills, tear gas. Shockingly unnatural.

Invisible cloud banks of it filled the yard and, as soon as we opened the door to answer Bonnie's panicked pounding on it, the entire house.
