The December 6th murders at the École Polytechnique were explicitly motivated by hatred and fear of women, and resentment of women's success. In recent years Canada has seen several more incel attacks, some specifically inspired by the École Polytechnique tragedy. It's easy for the women who died to become a number or even a political football. Hope the brief bios above - very little is known about them - will help counteract that.

For those who don't know, Bookwyrm is basically a better, federated Goodreads. Because it speaks ActivityPub, you can subscribe to someone's Bookwyrm feed from directly in Mastodon and see the book reviews they post!

joinbookwyrm.com/

Also there are 2 spots remaining in the Bookwyrm patreon to pay $40/mo and support the project in a huge way *and* have @tripofmice run a server for you and 50 of your bookwormiest friends: patreon.com/bookwyrm

Looking forward to Verizon buying Twitter for 25% of the price then turning around and basically giving it to Automattic.

asking for music reco, boost ok 

Is there any band out there whose genre could be described as "Enter Sandman - Metallica"?

I was thinking about the "Baseline" scene from Blade Runner 2049 the other day and idly tried to search for a transcript of it, and immediately fell down a rabbit hole learning

1. The script for that scene was written by Ryan Gosling
2. The test itself is fundamentally based on an actor's exercise Ryan Gosling had been trained in invented by a Massachusetts Shakespeare company

I wrote a blog post on Cohost about "Dropping In" and the ins and outs of how this happened:

Hot take 

Also, if a company with "bank" or "investment" or "realty" or even just "firm" in their name wants you to consult, charge them 2x your normal rate. And if they have more than one of those, add 50% to your rate for each word.

Do y'all have any good e-reader to recommend?

I'm mostly ignorant of the e-reader world, I just know the brand names Kindle and Kobo.
Can you borrow ebooks from your local library? Can all e-reader do that or do you need something special?

Debate shit take

Hey Camp,

Do you have very-good-pen to recommend? Ideally a metal body, rechargeable, ball-point.

I'd like to buy myself a nice, pleasing pen as a treat.
