Help keep http://darkroom.bar alive during #nzlockdown https://boosted.org.nz/projects/darkroom-christchurch/ #nzmusic
my coworker pellets guy sent me $500 of his stimulus check to redistribute to masto folks in need, so i decided to create a community stimulus redistribution gofundme!
if you don't need some or all of your stimulus check, please donate! after a week I'll divide the funds and send an equal payment to everyone who requests one.
if you are in need of financial help and want to receive part of these funds, here's a private 1-question form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/52DJ5KN
"For the first time, astronomers have observed a star orbiting the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. And the star is dancing to the predicted tune of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity."
Lockdown, young children
For those of us in #lockdown with young children please remember that this is a challenging time and it is ok to feel whatever you are feeling right now. You’re not in this alone, it is just a moment in time. 💜

Hey Aotearoa | New Zealand, we’ve got this. Let’s kick this virus in the butt. To quote my man Del the Funky Homosapien; don’t let this virus “bring dire straits to our environment”. #BeKind #Covid19NZ #StayHome https://open.spotify.com/track/4CpWJkSodVFE3HSylu7ajJ?si=Nb7AT4-3Q0mxLYYSu6sCDg
Is this age of increased video calls what #webcam can people recommend? I dock my MBP and it's a pain in the butt to constantly pull it out to use the internal cam.
Do you need some time off social media? If you need permission, here it is. We will still be here tomorrow 😊 #DigitalDetox
What strange times we live in. Here’s Dr Hitchcock’s #DailyPickMeUp if you need it https://pitchfork.com/tv/59-pitchfork-music-festival-2016/1810-watch-julia-holter-perform-sea-calls-me-home-at-pitchfork-music-festival-2016/
Reiterating an earlier offer to folks in NZ (and overseas as well): before you slide further into the digital oblivion of MS Teams and Zoom, consider using open tools. Here in NZ, you can have pro bono access right now to chat - https://chat.nzoss.nz and video conferencing - https://bbb.nzoss.nz - both just require a modern browser, no software install. Easy peasy. All data & the services are onshore in NZ, thanks to sponsored hosting from CatalystCloud.nz !!

I've just uploaded my latest radio show dedicated to Timmy Dodgers, former show host of Guitar Media, a radio show that aired on RDU 98.5FM from the early 2000s to 2010. He died late last week and we're all gonna miss him so dearly.
RIP Timmy Dodgers.
