Pinned oot


I make stuff. Sometimes I post pictures of it.

I go places. Sometimes I post pictures of those places or the conveyances that take me there. This may include my feet.

I have a dog. Dogs seem to like me. Sometimes I post pictures of dogs.

I drink beer. Sometimes I post pictures of beer.

I like my work. Sometimes my coworkers are a trial and I rant about them.

I like humor. Sometimes I will attempt it. Occasionally that works.

I like the clientele here.

I kind of wish they'd call them Cyberfolk instead of Cybermen.

Though that makes them sound like an itinerant band of hackers, sysadmins, and shell scripters who travel the connected world, singing sad songs of the Web We Lost when cyberspace was free and open and not the preserve of monopolists or divided by uncrossable borders of regulation, and telling tales of the deeds of ancient hackers, like Engelbart and his trained army of intelligent mice who carried his wishes into the digital world, or the way Dennis Ritchie created the ocean in a single night so that Ken Thompson could carry software in swift sailing ships rather than taking the arduous overland route through the Assembly Pass.

@kensanata first time i visited europe i was surprised by how much people in a 'first world' country could actually live their whole lives thinking they are 'good people' and 'do no harm to others' (and really, they're not doing anything wrong) and recycling and being nice to their neighbors. without realizing they were working for companies that actively engaged in social exploitation in far-away lands, buying things made by someone that makes 1 dollar a day etc.

because in these first world country everything is so clean and orderly. and the trains come on time and you don't see poor people on the streets. poverty is elsewhere. but it's hard to see how much your life impacts poverty across the globe in these situations. we need to remember, as david harvey always says, how did the food we eat was produced. the things we buy. why are they so cheap? how can i buy a shirt for 5 dollars if getting a haircut where i live costs 4x that?

"Raising the Old One"

Infernal ringing!
The cursed tones
Rouses me from slumber.
I lurch forth, grasp the wretched instrument,
Swear hideous vengeance
Upon miserable upstart humans.
Disturbing sweet repose!
They shall suffer exquis-

Oh. It's my sweetie calling me down for lunch.

I shall revenge myself mercilessly upon the sandwiches. Mercilessly, I tell you!

P.S. Back to the Future is still a timeless masterpiece and Doc Brown still my friggin' icon.
