Attention #Seattle, we have a #CisternFest!

If you've ever dreamt of getting your #RainCatchment on, Saturday, Sept 14 from 10am-12pm at the Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church is the place to be.

Sponsored by the city (who is probably offering discounts on cisterns), the snacks are likely the perview of the church, and I can say they do really good cookies on Art Walk nights.

I am going to be monkeying around with the server for the next hour or so. There will be some brief outages as I am working on it.

can anyone recommend some people who broadcast stuff in dutch? (via podcast or youtube channel)

I love stuff about knitting, tattoos, metal, environmentalism, queer + trans stuff, but I'm open to almost anything.

Javascript is the English of programming languages

- kludged-together clusterfuck
- many decisions were made to keep compatibility with old versions despite that not really making sense
- a whole lot of arcane logic that only makes sense if you really drive into the history of it
- bad to do math in
- basically everyone needs to know it at least a little
- lingua franca because the predominant powers on Earth just so happen to use them

did you know tony iommi had a physical disability. he was a guitarist before he lost the tips of his fingers in a factory accident. he was gonna quit playing but his foreman told him about django reinhardt. he compensated for his loss of finger control by playing with a thimble and drop tuning the strings, so he literally invented metal because of how his disability transformed his playing

Bumper sticker idea: "don't blame me, I voted for the other Anaander Mianaai"

Today I learned that the vocal sample "out on the streets they call it murder":
- Is from this song by Ini Kamoze:
- is *not* murder but "merther" a word meaning a music & dub-induced trance.

Something something this is why we can't have nice things.

antisemitism, execution 

In writing the description for that image I learned that my phone thinks "double kayaks" is the obvious text to go after the word "three". I think that means I'm doing something right.
