A ghost haunts the blue rooms
Burn the sage and sweet grass
Light the white candles
Sprinkle rice and then salt
It hurts to turn you from my door
May we both find peace and rest

"I decided that I would choose three powerful words, words of strong protection, and so long as these great words were never spoken aloud no change would come."

This ☝️ makes me want to get into Pico-8 game dev!

"picoCAD is a program to build and texture lowpoly 3D models. Where many programs for modelling and texturing are bloated and overly complicated, picoCAD aims to make it fun, easy, and accessible by focusing on the bare essentials. It is built on the PICO-8 platform and comes rich with constraints. Experiment to find your own workflow and anything is possible!"

I put out a podcast called Artists and Hackers. Episode 3 is out now: Can a Programming Language be a Radical Community? It's on the javascript library p5.js and how they support and nurture their community of contributors

"The web is something different" by @davatron5000 daverupert.com/2021/02/the-web

"I’ve come to accept that if there are bugs on the web or if there’s a massive quality dip on a site you’re visiting… that is a sign the web is working. It means some unqualified person was able to skip past the gatekeepers and put something online."

Nice, nuanced perspective in this post. I appreciate it.

Hey, listeners of Public Domain Tapes (publicdomaintapes.com), I have a question for you. I've been encouraged by some listeners to include an intro for each episode (like, where I speak for a minute and say something like, "Welcome to Public Domain Tapes; I'm Josh; etc."). Do you like this idea or not?

Happy :tealheart: day to fedi friends and Merveilles Town. Thx for sharing, informing, and inspiring.

Just finished reading a short story by H.P. Lovecraft ("The Dunwich Horror"), and I think I've decided that I don't care for his writing. He's all adverbs and hyperboles. Plus, cosmic horror just doesn't resonate with me for some reason. Oh, well.

Watched a documentary about The Witness today and fell in love with it all over again.

If it doesn't have an RSS feed, it's not a podcast.
