New desktop background. Wallpapers that give the impression of three-dimensional depth, stretching further *into* the screen, tend to strike me as dynamicโ€”which is to say, the juxtaposition of a distant vista projected and sprawled onto a flat, two-dimensional screen can create a contrast that enhances the breathtaking quality of an already-well designed frame.

Anyway, I may write something about the aesthetics of 'Spirited Away,' or Miyazakian aesthetics in generalโ€”stay tuned!

In high school, I enrolled in a 'Materials Science' course that taughtโ€”among numerous other practical skills and applicable scienceโ€”students to oxy-acetylene weld. I'm getting tentatively interested in welding in case this whole "academia" thing doesn't work outโ€”perhaps I should email my old teacher. Hm.

I attempt to adhere to the MLA Handbook when I type online, generally speaking. Unfortunately, Mastodon doesn't offer text-markup capabilities inclusive of italicsโ€”or the common alternative of underliningโ€”so henceforth my proposal for post-federated MLA format posits using single-quotes around names of works that would normally be italicized in MLA (e.g., 'Spirited Away'; by God, does MLA just *love* italics) and using asterisks around words that would be italicizedโ€”in MLAโ€”for emphasis.

Signal-boosting Claire Hentschker's 2016 digi-archeological art project, 'Catacombs,' in which she employs photogrammetrical techniques to reconstruct navigable 360 degree videos of abandoned shopping malls.

Posted below are the links to 1., the YouTube video, and 2., a Vice article/interview about Hentschker's work by Andrew Nunes.

Having several thoughts about the future of mass- and social-media. The future of social-media is federated. The future of mass media is worker-ownedโ€”and, within a non-postcapitalist framework, reader-funded.

The Fediverse's an excellent example of the advantages of a distributed social network. As for worker-owned publications, I'm currently looking at Current Affairs. Tildesโ€”while not exhibiting a federated structureโ€”works, for me, as a decent, left-oriented Reddit-alternative. Hm.

Promoting an experimental/spiritual jazz and spoken word album exploring transness by my friend, Quetzal Tirado. She recorded much of the instrumentation herself. Please take a listen, it's astounding:

Just watched Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away in full. Strong contender for both my favorite Ghibli film and favorite film in general. Expect a write-up because I have to get analytical with it.

Iโ€™m very very mean and a BIG monster when a marginalized person in a white space acts like they can be the ONLY one of us in that space. Big Monster Energy.
