Vulcans: Vulcan ethics is complicated
Also Vulcans: *act like any 13 year old after reading Marcus Aurelius the first time*

๐Ÿ’ƒ @zenlucy is streaming Baba is You over at! This is my first time seeing the game, tbh. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Random suggestion: I've been playing "Heaven Will Be Mine" lately, and it's super weird, gorgeous, fun, and very queer. It's taken me a bit to get a handle on the political/historical situation in the game, but I'm loving it so far.

guys, guess what, i just got off the phone with the ceo of capitalism and its over guys we did it capitalism is cancelled guys

I should note that I'm only three eps in, so Kirk Hamilton (the host) might pivot to talking more about the cultural aspects somewhere along the way.

๐Ÿ˜ I fell completely in love with a podcast today: It's an accessible, technical breakdown of songs that goes into chord progressions, vocal techniques, instrument usage, etc. I've wanted something like this forever.

It's not a podcast that discusses cultural aspects of songs or production, though, so while Toto's "Africa" episode is very, very good, there's only one passing remark about the lyrics of the song. I can get that elsewhere, so that's okay with me, but YMMV.

Imagine not being a CEO and being against collective bargaining like baby who hurt you

gab federation warning 

oh also gab is going to be open sourcing their version and from a video they made it appears theyre documenting how to set it up so just blocking flagship may not be enough. i dont have advice for this.

Is there a word for someone who isn't technically in a fandom because they don't watch the primary media around which the fandom congregates, but they are friends with so many in the fandom that they enjoy the jokes, references and fan made artistic endeavors involved with said fandom?

Like, being a member of the fandom through osmosis?

US concentration camps, resources wanted 

What politicians, people, groups, orgs whatever are actively, like with specific tasks, working to stop the U.S. concentration camps? Don't care how or what, looking for anyone relevant.
(this isn't a callout, I want to find a way my little spoonie self can somehow do something)

#2165 "Millennials" 

Ironically, I've been having these same arguments for at least a decade now. I thought we would have moved on by now, but somehow the snide complaints about millennials continue.

US politics 

Anyone who will eliminate (or even reduce ๐Ÿ˜ญ) the sheer volume of human atrocities we're committing is a win over Trump. After that. most candidates are probably better than Biden. - 2/2

US politics 

Two very good profiles of Buttigieg:

1) (covers evidence of his policy and "values")
2) (covers his book)

I really did not like what I saw of him in that "values. not policy" town hall clip that circulated. and so a real look at his work was welcome.
I do keep criticism of the current candidates in perspective. of course - 1/2

ok so I need advice from the hive mind: if you were going to a conference by and for trans folks, and a trans psychiatric specialist was giving a talk, what would you want to hear them talk about? HRT and mental health? Meds? What would you wanna see them focus on, regarding trans issues and mental health?

"The emphasis on โ€œpersonal data hygieneโ€ more or less ignores the questions of who has time, money, and access to the spaces and rituals of purification." Excellent in and of itself, plus many book recs here I want to pick up.
