LB: I hadn't known Brave was funded by Peter Thiel, and just settled into using it a couple months ago. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Well, bump that.

Switching off Chrome at least got me to build out my silly Shaarli-based bookmark system to break free of browser syncing. So maybe now I go for Firefox with the usual privacy plugins? I'm not sure I want to fuck around with tor for daily browsing. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

oh no. I'm falling down a hole of maybe un-Amazoning my substantial book/audiobook consumption? ๐Ÿ˜ณ is my starting place. I don't think I want to buy another physical ereader right now (my Kindle is rather new ๐Ÿ˜ฟ), but I want a really, really good mobile reading app first, including one that can sync positions, bookmarks, and notes... somewhere (Dropbox, S3, whatever). Icing on the cake would be a Windows app it can sync with. ๐Ÿ˜‡ Wish me luck in my hunt.

Anyone have some good solarpunk blogs they could suggest? I'm loading up my feed reader and need something new.

Mastodon android clients 

While I'm mildly annoyed at needing to find a new client for Mastodon (and Peertube!) to avoid potential blocks to accessing my full feed, I am so relieved it's possible and only took 30 minutes of trying apps.

I haven't used Tumblr since their Dec 2018 policy change, but the utter obnoxiousness of their mobile app felt like an inescapable trap that added problems to an already busted SM platform. I miss tumblr's format for my fandoms, but not anything else about it.

The Trump Administration Just Gutted the Endangered Species Act

Last week I spent time talking to a Christian... constitutionalist? originalist? Someone who thinks the Founder Fathers nailed it and that people/govts shouldn't be mandated to help others. His focus on diminishing spheres of empathy leads me to wonder if he thinks ecological shit like this doesn't matter until it hits his backyard or his local-ish economy.

I'm too tired to ask him.


Sometimes I wonder if Tr*mp voters who like him because he "negotiates" even care if he does it well. Evidence suggests no. ๐Ÿ˜‘

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
