Michael extracts meter and rhyme from texts like the script to Pokemon Red to find poetry in arbitrary places. Originally meant for limericks which turned out to be really hard but check out these from dril #wordHack

This self-destructive tape loop by AMULETS has me super inspired. What would it look like to have an art algorithm self-destruct like this? By running the code that generates the art recursively, a screen or hard drive overheats maybe?

To do before I'm at the airport at 1pm:
- get dressed
- pack everything on my packing list
- pick up friend who's house sitting
- lunch with house sitting friend and friend who's taking us to the airport
- hug cute wife
- don't panic

Starting this Friday night is Pesach/Passover for a week, and then starting May 5th is Ramadan for a month

During this time of year you should be extra mindful and CW food, especially bread, in order to be considerate of us Jews avoiding chametz for Pesach and especially for our Muslim siblings who will be fasting for Ramadan.

Thank you!!

dee and i are watching the fifth element right now and i haven't seen this movie in about a decade i think? the CGI has honestly held up really well, imo. it's obviously CGI, but not distractingly bad.

hey, i made a cute little microblog that lives at, check it out if you want. it's got some good glitch art and writing up on there so far

every so often i remember the week when there were signs reading "no vocalizing in the restrooms" hanging all over the shared bathroom in the building i work in.

like, it was because there were opera auditions happening on that floor but. still.

i was lying on my stomach on the couch, doing an accessibility audit for work, and one of my cats sat down on my butt to take a nap, and i guess what i'm saying is that i'm stuck here now

It wasn’t meant to be like this. This isn’t what we thought it was going to be.

The Event Horizon Telescope, incidentally, is a fantastic example of a large scale decentralised non-governmental collaboration.

That black hole image was taken using 8 separately managed radio telescopes scattered across the planet. It was organised by scientists working in 60 different research institutes in 17 countries across 6 continents. With no motive beyond trying to learn something which they didn't know before.

the black hole is my girlfriend and so is roko's basilisk. anyways here's more
