Apologies if I don't have the patience to let you educate me, an artist, on how NFTs are really the only way artists can even get paid for our work. I'm busy marvelling at how closely crypto replicates the same old Capitalist market bullshit that has kept the majority of artists destitute for centuries.

... and some pages from a (sorely overdue) work in progress, "Prisoner's Cinema". In it, I explore phenomena to visualise the mental effects of on inmates. Like before, &c

Seriously, I need to relax a bit with those image descriptions...

Here are a few sample pages from my book of "When the Last Story is Told" (2015). I may have gone overboard with the image descriptions...

Time for re-

I am an on the border between comics and . My current work is and , and is also a main source for my .

I give with musician Allan Grønvall, link in bio.

Did my MA in on and reading schema as . That's quite a mouthful, so I rolled it up in a neologism — , which I am currently exploring in a print anthology, podcast series and website.

On this account I'm prone to toot unsolicited thoughts on whatever or I let wash over me at any given time, or just the latest shiny thing I saw on the internet... Apologies in advance!

My posts on @uncomics are usually less scattershot.

Good morning. Have some Jean Shin to start your day. #art

Damning report from Human Rights Watch about the surveillance economy that is built into online learning tools

Like, the EU is far from perfect, France has a lot of problems, but ours don't mean people die from gunshots or have basic rights stripped from them. Compared to the US, Europe looks like a shining beacon of sanity, and that's saying something...

Of course, all teenagers on TV shows are secretly middle aged, so he had a head start.

You know you're getting old when somebody who was on a TV show when you were a teenager is suddenly an old man shouting at a cloud about his stolen apes.

social media culture 

The impulse of "it's wrong to block a person for a petty reason" is wrong-headed, but it doesn't have to come from a wrong place. It's natural to hope interaction in a friendly manner is always possible.

But sometimes it's not possible, and even if it is, it's not necessarily wanted or needed. And that's fine.

You don't have to be friends with anyone. You don't have to talk to everyone. No, not even to decent people who act OK.

It's fine.

social media culture 

The idea that you shouldn't block someone unless it's like, your last resort plays on the ideas of openness and respect and compassion.

It does so to hide the fact that some ppl are really uncomfortable with the idea that other people don't have a duty to listen to them.

There's nothing rude or wrong about not wanting to interact with sb. They needn't even have done anything wrong/awful.

And of course, ppl most uncomfortable w/ blocking are those who *do* do wrong things!

"Ms. Scott had no formal training, no education to speak of, could not hear or speak and had Down syndrome. Her work exists without explanation, even as to how it should be displayed. Right-side up or down is a curator’s assumption. Every one of her 200 or so pieces is “Untitled.”"

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Got so frustrated with the clusterfuck of current WP themes that I had to bake some bread.

Going to finish up the delayed podcast editing, then setting up a FUCKING Jekyll site instead.

Sitting down with Wordpress first thing in the morning is a great way to ruin the rest of your day.

I watched Everything everywhere all at once, and I really liked it.

I think the reason critics have been so positive toward it is, it captured the excitement of a Marvel movie but centred it around a mature character with realistic, complicated relationships — as well as butt plug kung fu fights.

Scholar Anton Shekhovtsov writes what I still think is the best analysis of how far-right ideologies infiltrated experimental music scenes like industrial, neofolk, black metal, noise. A legit good read on fighting fascism in music scenes: shekhovtsov.org/articles/Anton
