Mahnwache in Mannheim / Hanau
Heute abend ab 19 Uhr ist eine Mahnwache, örtlich organisiert von "Mannheim gegen Rechts", auf dem Marktplatz.
Sorry für den FB-Link, steht sonst nirgends. https://www.facebook.com/events/198855421225903/
Warum wir in Deutschland nur noch niederländische Verkehrsingenieure einstellen sollten, damit uns nicht andauernd die Radfahrer platt gemacht werden:
@checkervest there's literally nothing homeowners hate about homeless people that wouldn't be solved by giving them a home.
They leave trash around! Yeah they lack garbage pickup. Give them a home
They are always ranting and raving. Me too, but I have four walls so nobody sees. Give them a house
They're dirty. They don't have a room dedicated to getting clean. Give them a home
Around 1995 - 97 I bemoaned that the move from DOS to Windows meant that more and more programs were embracing the design of black text over white background and that with the computer screen being a glowing medium this made everything too bright to look at for a long duration. People told me that I'm being nitpicky and that things look a lot nicer that way.
It is now 2020 and practically everything has a "dark mode".
Somewhere, teenage me is feeling vindicated.
Sadly I've been kicked out of a bunch of groups for having the unpopular opinion that artists shouldn't work for exposure. People don't like being held accountable.
"But we're showcasing their art to our 20,000 group members!"
I don't fucking care. Do you know how low click-through rates are just for follows, and how few of those actually convert into sales? It's minuscule. Fucking pay them instead.
RAAAH *shakes fist at the sky*
PSA: Using reference in art is okay! It is nothing to be ashamed of, *especially* if you took the reference photos yourself. It doesn't diminish the worth of the work.
It is also totally fine to be (heavily) inspired by other artist's work! It is a normal thing to learn from others.
Thank you for your attention.

The year 2X99
Humanity has been gone for a while.
The ai it left behind is still very much at work.
It evolved to use all available resources to further its goals of development.
Considering that no means of keeping time have survived-
The year of Linux on the desktop might finally arrive soon.
“Kickstarter workers are now the first white collar workers at a major tech company to successfully unionize in the United States, sending a message to other tech workers.”
"wait, what do you mean sin() is broken???"
I mean that sin() is literally straight-up fucking broken
