I have received permission to invite non-Capital-District attendees to our upcoming panel discussion on reparations. The panel is generally local activists and researchers, but could be interesting even for non-local folks. Next Tuesday, April 13, 6pm. Details on the Facebook event! Let me know if you have questions! facebook.com/events/4409077572

The Dirt is one of my newer newsletter subscriptions, and it is proving to be consistently my favorite each week. Here is today's, on toxic positivity affirmation shitposting. dirt.substack.com/p/dirt-affir

number thirty: "this is not your island, this is yoshi's island"

number twenty-nine: "a flat tire at midnight on the county road"

number twenty-three. This one doesn't have a title; it's more of an experiment. Wanted to make all of the sounds with just the Volca Keys and record it only with the Ditto looper, so it sounds rough, but I really enjoy making drum sounds with tools not designed to make them.

number twenty one: "catastrophe"

So named because it's all I could salvage from yesterday's Audacity crash (complete with unedited take of me noticing my cat was staring at me as I poked at my phone)

number twenty: "computers get older too"

(so named because my Macbook decided to hiccup and delete everything while I was doing today's loop in Audacity, so I had to quickly do this one as a backup in Garage Band)

Ok I didn't like how hollow this looptober sounded so I took another pass at "mastering" it. Now it sounds much more like what I hear in my head.

number eighteen: "strolling"

Sharing video this time because I can't really figure out how to share the sound from my phone, plus I spent too long on trying to make this loop properly with the music.
