tired: you don't hate mondays; you hate capitalism

wired: you don't hate computers; you hate capitalism

inspired: in a world where everything is seen as a product or a potential product, all that could be real is necessarily substituted for advertising, and all that could be good is broken for cost-cutting reasons

"You don't care," he called into the void.
'no' the void replied.
"The universe is not fair, or kind, or just!"
'no,' the void said, 'but'
"What?"
'you can do what the universe can not, be what it can not, and care'

Total ownage of Jordan Peterson.

This is a thorough breakdown of exactly how he operates and coincidentally why he's such a twat.

The best part is that he literally cannot come back from this article because it would mean clearly describing what he believes and his entire MO is NEVER to do that.

He's fucked basically.

I have put in thousands of hours on my poetry generator over the past three years. Thousands. It gets rough, sometimes I feel like I should get rid of the whole thing and simply write poems on my own.

My Met Gala knock off zip tie halo. Super easy to make, like less than 5 minutes of sliding zip tying and then giving it a spray down with semi-matte spray paint. I was going to add flowers, but they were the wrong scale and those might look better as a second layered headband. Also, if I was going to try this again, I'd try to get shorter zip ties because these long ones are maybe a bit too long.

Bonus: My photo app glitching between camera and gallery into an overlap I had to screenshot.

Like Burning Man, but instead, it's Burning Chrome, a mass consensual hallucination, a celebration/solemnization of the reality of our unreality and the unreality of our reality.
