Blood diamond? Well most of our natural resources come to us through conflict. Oil & gas pipelines, the rare Earth minerals in our phones are all obtained through coercion, conflict and blood.
We fill our cars with blood oil, heat our homes with blood gas and I am typing this on my blood phone.
Maybe we need to start talking this way.
What if print on-demand #tshirt sites numbered prints unobtrusively? Us independent #artists don't sell Adidas quantities, but we're not doing exclusive runs like Supreme. Or, maybe we could using a system like I propose.
Point is, someone buying shirt number 752 knows there are still only 700 of 4 billion people on the planet wearing the same tee.
You could get that must-have Nike or H&M tee that everyone else has. Or you could grab something that no one else is wearing. Trust me, I see my sales statistics, you'll be unique. 😅
Won't you support the boy with a heart of gold & a mind of mental illness!
ME: My back hurts.
DOCTOR: Lose weight and strengthen your core.

ME: Wow! Less back pain and new clothes!
6-8mos. later after schedule change...
ME: My clothes don't fit and my back hurts.
Just peeking at my ArtLab site that needs to be badly updated and curious if I should print some glitch art on metal?
Hmm. Not like I have the money to do that.
Any #Android dev out there looking for a new (and probably easy) project?
I just found Nextcloud Cookbook (/com/android/quickstep) which lacks an Android counter-part. Even "View only" would be great (for the kitchen). All data is stored in files, one sub-dir per recipe, well structured JSON for data (plus image files if there are any with the recipe).
Who takes the challenge and writes a small viewer?
mh [~] and art
This week's dilemma has been an opportunity, an art show. Someone has contacted me to participate in a show with other artists, but I am not sure I have enough to do a show. Then there's the issue of mounting and getting things ready for a show because so much of my work is on watercolor paper. Do I have time to do all that before mid-March?
I suppose it would be good experience, but it could also crush me. Limbo is so damn comfortable. Ugh. Bleh. halp 😟
Our local transit options rely on Google's system for routing. Uber, taxis, food delivery, and even Tinder use these location tools from Google. One company has this much power. And, it can be hacked with a wagon and old phones.
our dances, our songs and ceremonies, which we couldn't do in public legally until 1978 with the passing of the indian religious freedoms act. White settler colonialism has attempted to destroy everything about indigenous identity. They are still actively attempting to obliterate our heritage, our traditions and our relationships to the earth and all its beings, because it flies contrary to their worldview of exploitation,domination and supremacy.
When our very existence and our practicing of
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
