The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.
We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.
The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.
I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.
If people wore masks for as long as they leave their xmas lights up, there would be no #covid19 pandemic.
In regards to my @sikkdays I believe someone on masto made the original joke. I just decided to sketch it.
Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: https://masto.host/pricing/
"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."
I hope that's clear enough :)
The knowledge of German Villages is one thing, but the joy in the way he shares it is contagious. Another conversation I am enjoying revisiting. - http://montrealsauce.com/2017/08/26/inclusive-not-exclusive/
I am creating an audio reel for a possible opportunity and listening to some of my previous interviews. I will share some, but first a word about #podcasts in general.
I guested on a show or two and finding those episodes has proven difficult. Podcasters have moved from self-hosted pages and feeds to get noticed on Stitcher or other platforms. Now, their created content is behind a wall. I cannot download. In some cases, I cannot listen.
Silos ruin everything.
Anyone have thoughts on gatekeeping in #art ?
When I joined a collaborative art show this year, I got a feeling that some were looking down on me because my work wasn't a 'collection.' There were others that were accepting, but I got a sense like I was less important because my pieces didn't have a cohesive element bringing them together. Personally, I think artist statements do the lifting there, but that's just me.
It is sort of staggering to see these drunk driving numbers linked to trucks. https://www.thedrive.com/news/38238/ram-2500-drivers-have-the-most-duis-more-than-twice-the-national-average-report?fbclid=IwAR0zrOv5V3FNt0txI-HcrQCAWbLU-V6F9NAfMc3VFrUlnp7wF0NKRXv_oDo
Well, those of us who waited and did not buy a PS5 or Xbox whatever, are the real winners. We are going to game and have our chicken too. https://www.gamesradar.com/kfc-launches-4k-240fps-gaming-console-with-a-built-in-chicken-warmer/
What would happen if politicians spoke about the actual individual humans that died? The numerical language of #covid "casualties," separates us from emotion. Our survival instinct is based on emotions. We will keep each other safe, not numbers, not economies.
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
