Beth and Joe Krush were such superb illustrators. I just walked by this edition of Emily's Runaway Imagination and recognized their work on the cover. They use this high horizon line a fair amount and these illustrations are composed so well. Exemplary work. #art #illustration #drawing https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/bN3oDMddRbjkI5SwFh0 https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/W1Z7vSR8JBGb4o2EDBY https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/1qGRFwvoKLTHp-gWS20
It's also a hot spot of knowledge though. if you want to talk about media theory or epistemology, almost everybody worth listening to is an academic, an ex-academic, or an aspiring academic. The power play bullshit is universal, and the way it's so obvious & explicit in academia actually disempowered it.
one time my mom sent me to the farmer's market just outside of our old neighborhood for "speanuts"
I went, asked the workers, none of them knew what I was talking about. they said "well... we have peanuts."
I called her to ask, and she said "NO. SPEANUTS. I WANT SPEANUTS."
came home empty-handed
she meant spinach
LISTEN HERE YOU LITTLE SHIT
@zskwrel @slacka I've got the same issue, and a user on another instance had the same problem: https://social.wxcafe.net/@Petra/99440369026498650. I'm posting about it on HELPDESK in BBOARD now; hopefully we'll be fixed-up soon.
I don't like to mix work and social media, but this customer's hold music sounds like every Amiga .MOD I've ever heard...
if I had millions of dollars laying around, I'd just hire a person to spend their days copying old out-of-print/oddball music and video off of YouTube and onto The Internet Archive.
@SDF I appear to have an issue. My Home timeline does not populate with any posts; I get a picture of the Mastodon mascot and "Loading... Your home feed is being prepared." It's the same issue described in this thread: https://social.wxcafe.net/@Petra/99440369026498650 — @wxcafe was kind enough to post the fix.
Just wrote a 'blackout poetry' generator that takes two files, and blacks out everything in the first that doesn't correspond to the second: https://github.com/enkiv2/misc/blob/master/metablackout.py
