The main figure in the drawing is based on a picture I took at the Gion Matsuri in #Kyoto some years ago. It is a dancer performing the old Japanese court dance "Ran-Ryo-O".
I used Derwent Inktense and Conté Aquaralle pencils as well as watercolour paint (various brands). The paper is Arches 56cmx76cm 300g/m2 rough watercolour paper.

Friday's xkcd is blunt but fair: it's very hard to secure any part of a modern computer stack, and we depend on all of it: https://m.xkcd.com/2166/
Watched "The Man Between" last night, and I liked it. It's set in Berlin in 1953, which is very interesting to begin with, and it has a great cast (Hildegard Knef, James Mason). I also liked the lighting and camera angles.
Apparently the BFI likes it as well:
Myerhoff here is saying, I think, that the raindance's job isn't to make the rain fall, as we might uncharitably think about our forebears: it's job is to address and alleviate the social strife caused by drought. The afflicted get together and say, "we've done the raindance: we acknowledge the problem, we aver to help each other out in this time of hardship, let us be good to each other".
My caricature of raindancers is, like all instances of me looking down on people, misguided.
Yesterday was a good day Show more
because it was the first day in almost a month that I wasn't utterly exhausted.
It's hard to enjoy life when you wake up tired, even after a full night's sleep.
So I'm glad it's finally getting better!
Apart from that it was not a remarkable day at all, but the weather was nice (finally) and it was solstice so light until 10pm.
I went for a run after work, made some nice food and watched an old movie. Nice.
Yet another photo of my sister dancing. I was making my first steps in photography using my mother's camera. I hope I did not moonwalk since then 🕺
Another really common wildflower in the #Highlands.
Wood cranesbill - Crobh-preachain coille - Geranium sylvaticum
Seeing it so frequently probably leads to people ignoring it, which is a shame. It has delicate petals with lovely gradations in colour.
As the botanical name makes clear it is part of the Geranium family. Likes shaded areas in woods. The cranesbill is a useful source of pigment to dye clothing.
For now the fork is essentially "Mastodon 2.9.0 with benefits", but in coming months more exciting features will be introduced. But this is a big milestone - it is no longer "vaporware" 🤩

A few hours spent with Perl in order to write a simple text server. It does just that: it serves text, and it allows you to change text because I think the read/write web is important. In a way it's a bit like #gopher without menus. You can have link extraction in the client, I think!
