I made my first firefox extension!
It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the #merveilles webring.
You can install it from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/merveilles-webring-surfer/
and you can read the source here: https://github.com/aadilayub/webring-extension
hightlight from the mix for me

The images coming out of India right now scare me to the bone. Mass cremations. Last rites being conducted in PPE. Cities running out of wood to cremate the dead.

"In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes", Mr. Warhol you are like little baby with your adorable toy 20th century notion of fame, we all get 48 hours where a billion people love or despise you and tell all their friends about you at once and it will be like doing an arm-long line of coke while shanking yourself in the spine with an epipen while the Sauron's Eye of global celebrity reduces you to a Vice article, a knowyourmeme page and a smoking crater where your identity was.
This album makes me remember the afterglow of a my first psychedelic trip. Just calmly taking in the beauty of the world and being happy to exist. ☀️
