I'm not being entirely fair. The fishtails aren't System Spigots. But I still feel like they're wasting an inordinate quantity of good material and labor on people with alarmingly fierce phallic hangups. And they know that's the only reason they don't like the bit.
People complain that #Peterson doesn't make enough fishtail #pipes, so they waste a bunch of silver and high grade briar on fishtail "systems" that those people are going to hate and never smoke because they're gonna smoke wet as shit because the patent lip is a part of the system!
I just had to vent. I know you have no idea what I'm talking about.
I can unfollow crossposter's accounts, but I don't want to unfollow everyone who boosts a twitter crosspost.
Please, #fediverse, let's boost the fediverse, not twitter. If we want to share a good tweet, let's treat it like any other URL from the web.
"What we are witnessing with the myth of labor shortages is an attempt to criminalize being unemployed, to force people into starvation to create a pro-business labor bargaining position. Reporters repeating this myth are complicit."
We've released #Owncast v0.0.7! Another exciting release as this adds the ability to hide chat, CSS styling overrides, customized welcome message, a bunch of bug fixes and the big one: hardware accelerated encoding for those with access to graphics hardware.
"It’s not any of my business if he wants to make $3B selling Beats by Dre to Apple, earning himself a place on the board in the process. But if 2,000 Apple employees are going to insist that they feel literally unsafe working alongside a man who wrote a love letter to a woman who towers over him in heels, I’d like to hear their take on serving under, and massively profiting from, partnership with the author of such classics as 'Bitches Ain’t Shit' and 'Lyrical Gangbang'"
"This move is a natural progression in our evolution as a company, allowing us to better support a collection of brands aligned around a shared purpose – to continually improve the quality of life for the ordinary musician."
Dear capitalists: STOP HELPING
They are such heroes over there. What else is an indie artist supposed to do in 2021?! Just build a site with your music and PayPal links on it?
Where would we find the time between making music and managing our accounts on all the other sites depending on us for our tiny shares of content and traffic and even tinier incomes?
Those add up, y'know!
All I need to know about Beyond Meat is the company they keep: Walmart, Amazon/Whole Foods, McDonald's. The problem isn't eating other animals. The problem is like 4 companies eating the planet. They care as much about your health, the ethical treatment of animals, and climate change as Toyota and Tesla care about reducing our dependence on fossil fuel.
My revolution is entirely boring.
Minimize my participation in systems that hurt
Maximize participation in systems I support
Save resources & money
Gather and practice skills
Buy as local as possible *when possible
Volunteer for community events, political candidates that help humans,
Mutual support of aligned people
Don't own more than I need
Don't desire what is inaccessible to most
Stay realistic by focusing on money and actions instead of words
So boring I can do this daily
"History has amply illustrated how this process works. It is a game of fear. And until we make them afraid, until a terrified Joe Biden and the oligarchs he serves look out on a sea of pitchforks, we will not blunt the culture of sadism they have engineered."
Come all of you workers
who toil night and day
By hand and by brain
to earn your pay
Who for centuries long past
for no more than your bread
Have bled for your countries
and counted your dead
Because the latest Ken Burns series is about Hemingway, Ma Rainey already got any awards it was gonna get, and John Legend isn't releasing an album of jazz standards, you will almost certainly not be reminded that one of our greatest national treasures was born on this date.
