I've tried building a few generative music things and it seems the musical output of things that are computationally interesting often isn't musically interesting.
I've been messing with cellular automata and music and the output is either too random or nothing special that I couldn't have just made other ways
I like wetlook leggings but they totally don't fit my usual fashion vibe
there are a few different things like that for me. Things I like but wouldn't wear because they don't fit my usual vibe. I feel like I could easily become sombody who has seperate wardrobes for different styles depending on how I feel, but I want to avoid that and stick to at least having things that match each other enough that I can wear most things I have with each other and still have it not be out of place
I feel like my interest in esoteric stuff makes me seem kinda insane to some folks but like, I don't believe in a bunch of weird esoteric religious and spiritual stuff (not that it's bad to), I just find it incredibly fascinating. And I'm convinced that magical practices work, although probably due to psychology rather than occult forces. Also esoteric philosophy (while certainly often less rigorous than academic philosophy) is cool and there's a lot of super interesting ideas there

I feel like the core idea of animal liberation - that we need to divorce moral consideration from species - is a very good one and one I really like, but if the consequnces of his form of this argument is that he wants to kill disabled kids, I can't defend that. Because I was a disabled kid!
so uhh I've been reading more into peter singer's work and I have defended the guy in the past, his book is literally why I went vegan, but his position on disability is shit I've heard a lot about it, and thought it was a misrepresentation of his argument in animal liberation regarding killing disabled children which I read as being an argument against species-based personhood, but in his other work he has explicitly said that killing disabled children is morally OK
what the fuck
