very good lichen in nevada
i'm putting together an in-browser thing that takes a .gpx file and recreates the gps route in a canvas with satellite imagery (as part of a bigger project). and i have to do fiddly timing math and i um it uh it finally happened, the two trains traveling in opposite directions at x mph math problem is DIRECTLY APPLICABLE TO MY LIFE
i'm at this residency rn where my collaborator is doing a ton of field work, and i'm staying back at the station writing code and 3d-printing custom bolts and shit. and like- i guess its good to know i'm basically the greasy space mechanic that never leaves the ship??
i am Out Here and it feels good
catch me at the free breakfast at the embassy suites, crying into my omelette over james and the giant peach
woww tbh i’m into how horrible and extreme this detroit airport media art is. airport art is always so banal and non-obtrusive but i’d take more terminal walkways that feel like kitschy themepark hells!
i’m leaving signal culture today and it was all great but nothing will compare to learning about analog video synths with My Hero Academia ambiently running in from the cable box
there's this pair of stray half-grown orange kittens that hang out on the windowsill of the residency i'm at rn and i have to leave tomorrow and i feel real messed up about it?
i know that they must be friends w every apartment on the block but like, i've never not adopted a cat that came calling every day. i mean they're perfect darling angels wtf why would i leave??
nostalgia/tech is bad Show more
i was remembering one of the first things i made w code, an embedded youtube player that searched for random/underplayed videos of snow/snow days/people in the snow and autoplayed them forever...
and that within a few months youtube had removed the hacky search functionality that had let me do that
ig making work in edges of corporate spaces has always been this way, but idk, i wonder if 'ephemeral work' is a defense mechanism here. like- it doesn't have to be like this?

i've been doing a lot of sound work for new games projects the last few days and its nice?? i don't consider myself decent w music/sound in general but i like the constraints of an ambient looping background track. its just limited enough that i don't need to stress about it holding interest alone.
also, its more standard fare but phoebe and her unicorn is also on gocomics and is also pretty good and wholesome, especially when it gets into the grit of human-unicorn cultural differences imo. https://www.gocomics.com/phoebe-and-her-unicorn/2018/09/02
i can't stop reading the comments on new nancy?? i avoid media comments as a rule but oh my god seeing the olds wrestle everyday w a comic that suddenly involves Phones and New Friends Of Color is delicious
furniture in assorted sizes
i think i want to get some tattoos of radiation bred plants. rio star grapefruit and this predominant form of peppermint ("Todd's Mitcham") were both atomic mutants and they're both interesting and nice cultivars that've made it so broadly into the wider world
aaaa i’ve been in the woods and the mushrooms are! so good!
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
