Primary hangout of @knapjack, because the Fediverse isn't just one thing.

I snap photos on film, flip bits for a living and live in the subarctic. Be kind, rewind.

Kiddo is attempting to join the car culture. I am in the thirty-minute limbo zone. Well, I hope it's thirty minutes. 😬🤞

Being an adult means you have a total of 3 friends and they all live in different parts of the country and periodically you just send each other videos of weird stuff and say “this made me think of you.”

I've seen a lot of aurora. I've never seen it dance the way it's dancing right now over southcentral Alaska.

I'm used to seeing running ribbons. These giant flashes are amazing. Not very bright, but huge.

Journalists: Trump is a fascist. He wants to rule the United States as an unaccountable dictator. Given the Republican Party's broad contempt for fair elections, civil liberties, and the rule of law, this could happen.

Your necessary role in political coverage of the upcoming elections is to be activists in defense of democracy.

When the hell are you going to wake up and realize that?

PSA: PLEASE SHARE! If you pickle or preserve food, safe pickling requires at least 5% acidity. This is the first year you CANNOT just go grab a gallon of distilled vinegar - it’s only 4% and you will waste a lot of food thinking it’s shelf stable.

“Kids these days” style post, PBS

“Kids these days” style post, PBS

kids these days maybe don’t realize that in the 80s everyone had a TV and if you couldn’t afford cable in the US you had 4 channels, and PBS was the only one to do kids programming during the day, and there apparently were creative people with revolutionary politics making PBS kids programs cuz Sesame Street, Mr Rogers, Reading Rainbow etc didn’t miss and we were all deeply deeply educated by those shows.

I like the feeling of fountain pen. I like uncapping it. I like the weight of it in my hand. I like that thing, so I’ll have a notebook, I’ll have a fountain pen, and I’ll write. If I’m doing anything long, if I’m working on a novel, for example, I will always have two fountain pens on the go, at least, with two different colored inks, at least, because that way I can see at a glance, how much work I did that day. I can just look down and go, “Look at that! Five pages in brown. How about that? Half a page in black. That was not a good day. Nine pages in blue, cool, what a great day.”

If you speak Malay and want to spend time in Indonesia, consult the online ‘Bahasa Gaul’ (street slang) dictionary. It’s based on Betawi, the main language spoken in and around Jakarta street culture. So there are those new words, new grammar (adding nge- to make a noun a verb, like ngegym, to go to the gym, ngopi to drink kopi), and then it’s contracted even more (many vowels get dropped). The first time I saw a text message in ‘bhs gaul’ I thought I was having a stroke. ‘Sy dpn’ (saya depan)
