Bass Clarinets are extremely underrated Bass instruments. The sound is just fantastic.

Also Music for 18 Musicians is so vibrant. Pure, floating textures and patterns, like an Agnes Martin painting

Spotify is buying up all the popular podcasts and removing them from the commons in order to drive you to their platform.

Podcasts have somehow stayed open access, built on standards, and just (mostly) work. Moving them to a proprietary platform just so a few people (ie: not you) can make money is bad for everyone who isn't making money. (ie: you.)

picking up images over VHF radio is fun stuff! surprisingly clear reception from this local station. RTL-SDR works quite well once you get a good antenna position. it’s even more badass when you’re picking up SSTV broadcast by the ISS, but that’s rare - only had the chance once thus far. actually, I was most happy when I did all of this completely offline while my ISP had some downtime tonight. amateur == resilience, independence and autonomy :)

📻 As usual, this 25 April Bella Ciao will echo through the Italian balconies, and Portuguese radios will play Grândola, Vila Morena, the song used as a signal to start the revolution back in 1974. This is important, but it does not prevent our collective memory from fading away. Learning history’s lessons to avoid repeating our mistakes is possible only if we build a collective memory that does not seek refuge in blame shifting, scapegoating, and revisionism. That is our duty. Asking whether in the April of 1975 the Vietnam War ended with the fall or with the liberation of Saigon is already a revolutionary act.

I was just telling a friend about the Cloud Firewall plugin for Firefox you can use to block Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and CloudFlare connections for privacy and observational interest.

Just installed it again, and how nice is it to see this beautiful green "0" right away at Merveilles. Thanks for the conscientious admin @somnius and @neauoire!

Instance block suggestion:

Recently a new italian instance joined the Fediverse, social.byoblu.com

You may have never heard of #byoblu but in Italy is quite famous for being since many years one of the most notable hubs of conspirationists and fake news and for having been strongly connected to the 5-star movement.

Everyone can easily see on their public TL and on the main website byoblu.com conspiracy theories about #coronavirus, #5G, #medicine, #NoVax, #economy, references to racial substitution, #Qanon and so on, but it's all in italian.

In fact it's sorta of #freespeechextremist website/instance and many people left Twitter for Mastodon also because of the byoblu users.

An article about byoblu is here: medium.com/@JulianCarax/fake-n
