i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

i think i witnessed too many accidents recently

Finally, after 4 years in my todo list , I found the time to create the #Friendly #Router Project website... What the idea? Well, create a database of practically all #opensource friendly #hardware which can be used as switches, routers or firewalls. Would also like to share the configuration, test and benchmark...
I even have a mascot, say hello to Switchy! friendly-router.org/

it's a been a long while i can only feel more peaceful/at ease when i'm out, or just going for walks, even in crowded or noisy parts of a city, even if i rarely talk to anyone. It's... hm a bit strange to me to be only able to find some calm time/quietness only when i'm out in places full of people and noise. To feel almost more ""at home"" anywhere else except where i currently live.
(An unfinished thought/note...)

There shouldn't even be any real problem/reason that prevent me from finding another place to live... but there's a bunch of tiny things that i struggle with and the result is i'm still stuck in this place (which often turns into what i feel like a never-ending nightmare...) -- Not trying to be especially dramatic although i have bad anxiety issues.

Show thread

It is super tiring (exhausting in my case) to live in/reside in a temporary place as it's been the case for a few years now (how long?)... It's not a place i'm comfortable living in at all (the absolute contrary), not a place i can't feel *at home* at all. It is does not help at all with my anxiety issues, it's the contrary, again.
-- I miss feeling sorta at home. I miss more quietness, i miss any sort of alone time i *really* need & don't have, i struggle a lot with non-stop interruptions...

Dans ma To Watch list, ajouts récents (par lesquels je devrais en théorie poursuivre):

- Microhabitat (film sud-coréen, 2014) [outbuster.com/completement-a-l]

- Tokyo Waka (US/JP, 2012) que je voulais déjà voir l'année dernière. Un docu-poème à propos de Tokyo et (surtout) ses corbeaux? Quelque chose comme ça.

i'm doing some audioreactive stuff mixing the hand drawn and the procedural lately

#theWorkshop

I put up a pseudo 'photo log' or something like it here ghostlevel.net/days/ (or there ghostlevel.net/days/?imgs)
You probably won't find it interesting tho and it'll probably stay as boring as it is now (even if i do continue updating stuff even only semi regularly)

Alright, next thing. I'm craving chocolate? Anyone has some chocolate?

"Ceremony - Disappear", a 2007 self-released album.

I didn't get into this album when i first heard of it/heard it but oh... 2021 isn't too late. It's a good-mood album for me some days, with moderation.

What does it sound like? Something shoegaze-y, definitely noiserock... with what seems like a good part of New Wave thrown into it. Unusual mix?
