Can't believe it's taken me until the 9th to play this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PljVcczvypo
I've got a tradition of playing every July now.
America in 2020. People using forged (and mis-spelled) cards from a fictitious organisation to misrepresent legislation intended to protect disabled people so they can avoid showing a basic amount of courtesy to help protect others during a pandemic.
Not only is this bullshit ableist as hell, it would literally be easier just for these people to put a damn mask on their faces.
If you're in the US and someone hands you one of these, cut it in two and throw it in the trash.

Contemporary black experimental music:
I've put together a list of 32 black experimental artists currently working in genres as diverse as noise, hip hop, jazz, ambient and more.
Any suggestions for artists to add to this list are more than welcome!
If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist. The power for racism, the power for sexism, comes from capitalism, not an attitude.

I'm glad github are dropping references to master. I still don't like github, they need to stop collaborating with ICE for a start, but if nothing else it's highlighted people I don't need to see toots from with their crying about "woke micro$oft".

I'm gonna keep beating this drum 🥁 until people get it:
If you are standing up a brand new Internet service today, it needs to have #IPv6 from go.
If your hosting or network provider doesn't support this, engage them. If they won't budge, find a new provider.
New IPv6-only access networks are coming online every day. They have to maintain costly, latency inducing gateways to legacy Internet to reach all the old crufty stuff.
Don't be among the sites that require those gateways to stay alive.
More kitten vs cat pictures!
The other day I said they didn't fit on top of the tree any more, but it turns out I was wrong. They weren't too comfy up there though 🐱
I've slightly resized the first picture and had to crop the second one to try and keep the cat tree the same size for comparison. The pictures are about a year apart.
Police abolition is just A FIRST STEP. Police murdering black people is just the most extreme display of systemic racism that exists. White supremacy is also prominent in justice, medical, educative, labor, housing systems. When cops are abolished we must keep fighting, keep pushing, and as white people we must unlearn our behaviors that keep white supremacy running, and learn to recognize it where it is
I like Dark Souls. And Bloodborne. And Dark Souls III. And Sekiro. But not Dark Souls II
