I just learned about this: Banksy painted a mural called "The Mild Mild West," and an anti-graffiti group graffiti'd it in protest, so the town came together and repaired the original painting. Seems like nobody knows what graffiti even is anymore. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mild_Mild_West
Also I’ll keep posting video on Instagram as I keep messing with this stuff, if that’s something you are interested in. https://www.instagram.com/makingarecord/
Firefox just sent me an email notification that they've "teamed up" with Live Nation to present a "free" concert series. When I unsubscribed, they characterized the original promotional email as one in "a series of emails about setting up your account." So in short, no company, no matter how good, is immune to this weird internet ecosystem we have created.

Obviously I'm not in love with the increasing commercialization of the McElroy empire, but I am very into their generic podcast merch. https://store.dftba.com/collections/mcelroy?_=pf&pf_t_collection=Generic%20Podcast

@rpcutts Nice! Some overlap, some not. I'll be listening to this today!
@ranjit Glad you like it! The Klezmer Nutcracker thing sent me down a bit of a rabbit hole, landing approximately here: https://open.spotify.com/track/3jbqlBs2Tt9JOjg1pFb0xN?si=Y9e2JmpQT-iGBfJ-98heBg
@ranjit Wow, Ranjit, this is all total gold. Thanks! Also Christian Marclay! The "Clock" guy!
@ranjit This is immediately really really nice! (One of my top ten albums of all time is Roberts and Barrand's "Dark Ships in the Night" so this is in my area for sure!)

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!
