on the silver globe (1988)

this movie is not for the faint of heart. but I feel compelled to rewatch it. it has a darkness, a humanity, and a mysticism that is hard to explain directly.

Day 3 - Bay to Bay (Tomales to SF). total distance was 116m and elevation gain around 6800ft over three days. happy to be back home.

My partner and I are putting a small curated reading list on anarchism and were wondering which were your favorite books/zines. It can be theory but we'd also like some more applied resources :) Feel free to boost!

loaded down for a very slow coastal century over the next three days 😝

just went through all photos I've taken over the last decade and deleted probably close to 5k photos. feels so good and exhausting... now to back the ones I actually want to keep up!

Anarchism is based on an essentially optimistic conception of human nature: if individuals have a natural tendency to get on well together then there is no need for the existence of a state to arbitrate between them.

almost done building my first diy synth, the "sanfreo euroling". you can find the schematic as well as details on how it works here: metasyn.pw/sanfreo-euroling.ht

next is actually recording some of what it sounds like and making some final adjustments

Children, by nature, are keen, passionate and curious. What was referred to as laziness is often merely an awakening of sensitivity, a psychological inability to submit to certain absurd duties, and a natural result of the distorted, unbalanced education given to them. This laziness, which leads to an insuperable reluctance to learn, is, contrary to appearances, sometimes proof of intellectual superiority and a condemnation of the teacher.
-- Octave Mirbeau

ideas grown in gardens,
virtual or not,
can still be left alone to rot,
but if cutlings can be made someway,
propogate i say!
propogate today!

I also make music, write on my blog, play with video art, and play games with friends.
