So I made a personal experimental documentary, film. It was shot in a small offgrid cabin in Sweden.
"A deeply personal and experimental documentary, at its core A Slower Journey is a personal letter from the director to the audience. A conversation about waking up to the world around us and a reflection about change in our lives. It touches on our relationship to ourselves, each other, nature and the environment."
you don't hate Mondays, you hate capitalism
you don't hate commercials, you hate capitalism
you don't hate your shoddy internet service provider, you hate capitalism
you don't hate shopping, you hate capitalism
you don't hate your job, you hate capitalism
you don't hate standardized learning, you hate capitalism
"Imagine going to the grocery store and buying three bags of groceries, and as you walk out, you throw one of those bags in the garbage can. It sounds ridiculous, but in essence that's what's happening every day."
Hmmm, maybe the Remainers are resigned to leaving, and the Brexiteers have their backs up. I dunno.
"Freedom is lost gradually from an uninterested, uninformed, and uninvolved people."
Money breeds both softness and callousness. It cripples your coping skills for life’s obstacles while extinguishing any empathy needed for navigating society and social relationships.

Ppl need to come to terms with the fact that the worst kinds of ppl can do the most amazing and globally lauded kinds of things. Davinci was a known and SELF described pedo, Marlon Brando sexually assaulted his co-star and fought for indigenous rights, MJ, RKelly, & John Lennon were Sexual Predators but musically legendary(JL was shit sorry but w/e), Tarantino is a sexist rapist enabler who almost crippled an actress who spurned him yet he’s also an incredibly gifted director etc. -
From my office I hear the police shouting through a megaphone, clearing out the homeless encampment in the alley behind my building.
Meanwhile, the storefront across the street from my office has been empty for months, because the landlord raised the rent to a level nobody can afford. They'd rather keep it empty as a tax break.
Somebody tell me one reason landlords should get tax incentives for keeping rent ABOVE market rates, in a city full of people who need homes.
Dear glasses frens,
If you have a strong af prescription (I'm a -5.75, for example) and shops try to sell you polycarbonate or high-index, tell them no; you want Trivex. If they refuse, leave and find someone else.
Context: I just spent /a month and a half/ fighting with shops that insisted I didn't know what I was talking about re lens materials and multifocal cuts, then blaming /me/ when /their/ lenses were unusable and I needed a refund. Found someone who'd do it how I wanted — zero issues!

"A former US Secret Service operative who specialised in protecting politicians from unknown substances has told Nigel Farage to “keep a change of clothes handy and man up”
Dan Kaszeta, who served as a senior physical security specialist under president George W Bush, suggested the rise of “milkshaking” should be considered a form of protest and “not political violence”, unless there was evidence it was intended to cause harm."

Like, due to social stigma... how many men have gone to the pharmacy and bought one of each brand of condom, just to try them on?
I have. I'm pretty sure I'm a freak.
(Amusingly, the clerk was a very attractive women I knew had a black belt at my Karate dojo... small town moments!)
How many men share my frustration that condom packs rarely have useful sizing information printed on them?
How many are aware that if circumcision and smoking both effects the type of condom you want?
twitter, nazis, Mastodon discourse Show more
xkcd’s take on free speech can’t be posted often enough, especially with regards to the hordes of man children, nazis and bigots on borblesite demanding for their instances to be “recognized” or listed officially..
Guess what? It’s not going to happen, because the community is showing you the virtual door.. 👋🖕
Fuck jobs, my god. How has such a baffling overwhelming proportion of people managed to internalize this utterly nonsensical job worship, where the solution to all our fucking problems is to fabricate more useless work for people to slave over. It honestly has never made sense to me at any point in my life, even when I was a liberal
When discussing history you may have seen me using the HE (Holocene Epoch) notation for dating. I despised the negative dating system of the Dionysian Calendar, when studying history. So when I discovered the Holocene Calendar, proposed by the scientist Cesare Emiliani, I leapt at the opportunity to change the way I numerically viewed history.
Rather than dating the beginning of the 'Common Era' back to the establishment of the Roman Empire, it instead follows dates back to the estimated beginnings of civilization itself.
It's my opinion that this system of dating provides us with a more complete outlook on our own history, rather than Eurocentrically discarding 10,000 years of historical development. It even retains a form of negative dating with BP (Before Present) representing larger periods of time where exact dating isn't necessary.

@srol it's very telling that programmers adapted a word from the advertising industry
it's also a reason i so despise the word "content" because to so many it's just replaceable fluff between their precious ads
