Information Society, Deathy 2016 (Pt1)
our body's present
our mind is absent
live like a legend
until the very last second
few of it lasting
reoccurring in future
will we ever need it?
who will be organizing
who will be sorting
or will we be conforming
to informational extorting?
I switched to here to post more general stuff (was kind of discouraged to do so because the other instance is for gamedev related stuff).
I like to ramble about almost anything. Favourite music, photos, videos, (bad) jokes, sports, daily life - basically everything I did and do on birdsite.
Uh yeah - let's have a nice time together, I guess!
today is the day Putin will be constitutionally made a czar - a life-long president, marriage will be defined between man and woman, and governers and local mayors are no longer elected.
Probably the best day to say, that I do not care about my birth-country, I am a European of German nationality first and foremost. I do care about the people that suffered and still suffer under that authoritarian state tho - hoping for better times.
Itch.io is holding a fundraiser! All funds will be split 50/50 between the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund.
A group of itch.io are giving download codes for 700+ games for only $5!
More collaborators pitched in so the offer is not 1000+ games for pitching at least $5! Support the BLM movement and get cool games lol
I think a lot about how to explain the problem with whiteness to people. How if you're white, you are by default blind to certain shit.
The best way I can think to explain it is this:
When is the last time you, as a white person, noticed other white people?
When you go to the grocery store, do you notice other white people? The laundromat? The salon to get a haircut? The DMV? The bottle return place?
Do you see other white people? Do you marvel at seeing them?
