Pinned toot

In general, if you have any specific questions about:

1) Cooking, including breadmaking, yogurt and cheesemaking, and fermentation
2) Gardening, especially urban and guerrilla, as well as composting, vermiculture, soil remediation, and apiculture
3) Workplace organization and unionization
4) Emacs or Elisp
5) Protesting or Direct Action

I am probably happy to help answer them!

Please, always feel free to ask. Not just one question, I'll be your tutor in any or all these topics.

Pinned toot

Our mouths
were made for praising
that sweet by-and-by
but it's hard speaking
so our voices need a rise
above our toil and trouble
towards our justice and summer nights

Pinned toot

Here's to my sweethearts,
And here's to my friends.
Here's to our means,
And here's to our ends.
Sing a verse of Guthrie,
I'm sticking with our Union,
And bound for glory.

Did you remember to commit acts of class warfare today?

and since then she won't get out of my desk chair, as I said - we're sharing it now, FINALLY. it's not like she's too big for both of us to sit here she just... won't make roooooom.

I think my cat has like, just about separation anxiety, because after I was gone for a fair chunk of the afternoon, she was super pleased to see me, cooing purrs, and when I sat down to pick her up, she jumped up and climbed her way onto my shoulder (she loves to be slung over my shoulder like a burping baby) and just cooed and stretched her claws and it was so cute but also sweet kitty sometimes i gotta leave the house D-:

wait, am I right that there have been more non-human/vulcan federation presidents than non-human/vulcan starfleet captains? that can't be right, but Rixx the Bolian is the only captain I can think of.

emsenn's personal log, stardate... today point right now

the computer's scheduled updates have been delayed, as there is an adorable kitty who absolutely refuses to get out my desk chair. who's a good kitty. get the fuck up, good kitty.

wow I just heard some lady say "I think this whole area might be full of black people during the daytime" while walking by my window on the phone

i love my kitty.

I'd share a picture but that's too much work but just trust me she's real dang cute rn

okay i fixed myself another salad from the garden and added one of the radishes - definitely too young lol but tasty and a nice almost nutty texture, will keep growing this cultivar. It's uh... Sow True Seeds' French Breakfast radish

french people must have boring breakfasts

*observes that my political views have become more conservative as i, a cis straight able-bodied white man, have accumulated power in american society* "wow. i guess this is just what happens to everybody"

Oh also, I felt a bit called out when their superficially best person on earth was shown to be eating radishes and lentils from his own garden...

...because I was definitely eating a salad of stuff from my own garden. I really wanna pull up one of my radishes but also they're not QUITE old enough but also they're like my first gardened vegetable that'll be ready in the past uh like 7 years?

Well now I'm all caught up on the Good Place. I see why people are cheering it as a criticism of capitalism and reformism, but it very quickly segued toward preaching self-fulfillment through love and comfort and that neuters its criticisms a lot, in my opinion: "things are bad so hunker down with a loved one," is not nearly as strong a message as "things are bad so make them better," which is what the show explicitly repeats as its message. Practice what you preach, The Good Place.

It's that certain US holiday that either spits in the face of indigenous populations or plays at honoring people they're still attempting to genocide.

Fuck white Americans. Best I see from most of y'all is idolizing the "noble savage," looking to us for how to dig yourselves out of your climate emergency hole. Most of the time it's just honest surprise we aren't all dead yet.

@puffinus_puffinus Like it's often stuff I don't see except for your boosts, and so, Iunno, I just wanted to give an acknowledgement that they're actually useful, at least for me.

I know it's small but i really appreciate that in this fight sccene in the Good Place, everyone is fighting using the same style, not men one style and women another sexier style

Hey! I think it's important to my education that I read "Pan-African Social Ecology" by Modibo Kadalie

Polyester clothing, disintegration, and friction cause small fragments of plastic to enter every part of our ecosystem, which may be contributing to an ongoing decline in fertility across the planet.

Additionally, this may be relevant to organic farming methods, which often use plastic for weed control.

Feel free to ask me more, this is one part of science I know something about.

and someone believed it
and look what it's done
so far"
