CW: Racism, fetishization of Asian people 

Kudos to this tattooer for putting out a warning

"I'm currently standing in the hangar bay of the UAC power plant complex, located on Phobos. Normally this is a facility buzzing with life, delivering 666 GigaWatts of energy to science facilities all across this moon. But right now, things may have gotten a bit out of hand..."

seems to be a lot of fun things for making ambienty beepboops, but I want to see if I can make this do a bigger range of sounds. I want some big beats and harshness as well as all the soft polyperc arpeggios

Tomorrow is the deadline for the #libremusicchallenge, and I think my #synthwavefromscratch track is in a good enough place for it.

For those of you just joining in, for the past month, I've been making a synthwave track from scratch: no DAW, no plugins. Just C code and some scripting languages on top of that. In other words, I'm using my #sndkit and #gest projects.

The code for the song can be found here:

...if you don't believe me, compile and render it yourself ;)

playing with norns in a docker container using a pd patch for controls is kinda...meh. Going to get my grid working with it and that should add more hands-on coolness to it. And then if that's really fun I'll consider some kind of norns hardware.

All browser prompts need a "Lie" function in addition to Allow and Block.

<Website> wants to:
* Know your location
* Use your camera
[ Allow ] [ Block ] [ Lie ]

so fae pronouns are kinda cute and they feel nice to me in one way but in another way to me they feel very linguistically awkward (especially "faer")

how do I learn to do makeup! I want to do makeup and I got some ages ago and a friend did my makeup for me while kinda explaining what she was doing but I don't get it. How do I makeup?

it now magically works again. I'm not gonna question it. Today really has been a weird day.

I have had a shitty day today and just to cap it all off, my pinetab decided it was no longer going to charge on USB and I have to charge it with a barreljack now. Basic functions of a device just stopping working out of nowhere seems to just be acceptable in the pinethings world.

anybody have a monome grid and can recommend some cool things to play with it with on linux? It seems a lot of the cool things are either max/m4l or norns (which are both cool but I can't use them)
I expected this when I got the grid and love making my own stuff but I want to mess with some other people's stuff and get ideas

current mood: wanting to build fun pd patches or weird synths
also current mood: having no ideas for fun pd patches or weird synths

"Congratulations to drugs for winning the war on drugs." is going to be something i say obnoxiously too many times for the next five years, i can feel it


went to a meeting of my local branch of the SWP. I've no idea what their overall revolutionary vision is and if they're any good in that regard but the things they're organising and doing are good and they're very pro-trans, I was expecting a bunch of old marxists complaining but it seems to be a bunch of old marxists actually orgainsing things. (If anybody has dirt on the SWP then do say, but so far I don't have a bad image of them)
