Just saw something about people using Instagram "close friends" stories to invite people to events, and it made my anxiety spike, so I thought I would say publicly: if anyone wants me to attend something, they have to actually directly tell me so (DM me somewhere, email me, text me, tag me, whatever). Do not just hope I will see a random thing posted somewhere.

@kit Ben is wondering: are you family with the Seed Of Life Foundation brand of gifs?

mumford and sons being fash 

imagine writing out a statement that's like "in today's modern climate of woke cancel culture mobs, i simply cannot continue to be a member of mumford and sons"

@casey "[we] discovered that if you slow these really dark and heavy techno records down all the way to about 115 bpm, it suddenly makes them sound less frantic,ballsier and a lot sexier.Belgium at its best when pitched down."

@darius the only thing I know about this book is that the titular tree is a "tree of heaven," which is terribly invasive and stinks like ass

This is not me saying "Republicans Bad," it's me saying that there's clearly some nuance to the mythological idea of California as a "liberalizing" force in national politics (and also the commonly-held Liberal idea of Ohio as "backwards" or "dysfunctional")

I'm realizing this because that means California and Ohio sent the same number of Republicans to this Juneteenth vote, and 0 from Ohio voted against it, but 2 from California voted against it.

I just realized that there are as many Republican House representatives from California as there are from Ohio (11 each)

@callie for some reason at first glance I imagined this as a Werner Herzog version of the Michael Jordan "...and I took that personally" meme

Still hooked on the Ukraine Eurovision entry, which now that I pay attention to the video and lyrics is possibly a sort of post-COVID / post-Chernobyl (?) hygge-Mad-Max EDM folk festival anthem youtube.com/watch?v=U7-dxzp6Jv

pol palestine 

I posted more about this on Twitter, but I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish community, where they made me feel stupid and unwelcome in my own community whenever I even hinted that I thought Israel might be the bad guys. This made it nearly impossible to even think my opinions through, let alone TALK about them. So as a result, I've been angry and ashamed at the Israeli occupation of Palestine longer than I have felt able to talk about it.

Raise your hand if you've ever been called antisemitic by members of your own family because of things you said about Israel and Palestine? 🙋🏻‍♂️
