Je trouve ça quand même encourageant. J'espère que les gens au pouvoir vont prendre le bonnes décisions...

The sample itself is actually a mistake. I tried to import something but it glitched because I had no idea what I was doing. And then I kept playing with it, adding effects and stuff, because I thought it sounded cool and it was a good opportunity to learn.

At this stage, I was just happy to make noise, but I knew I wanted to try to make a full song out of it.

The whole thing is just to learn this music software called .

I'm currently working on a little weird song and I just realized that I had saved multiple exports, which means I'm able to post some sort of work in progress.

This is the first thing I did. It's just some drone background and weird sounds. In reality, it's all the same sample, but at different speeds.

No need to listen to the full thing. It stops near the middle and just keep looping.

"Audible Exclusives also work in direct opposition to the basic principles of libraries—free access to books, both digital and print."

And, of course, Audible-only titles are also barred from bookstore distribution...which only enhances Amazon's monopoly over book-sales and erodes the dwindling, fragile market for your community bookseller.

Libro.fm is an amazing alternative to Amazon's Audible: an independent audiobook platform that sells books from every major publisher at the same price as Audible - but without DRM, and with a share of every sale going to an indie bookseller of your choosing.

Virtually every audiobook title is available through Libro.fm - except for those titles that Audible demands be sold as "Audible exclusives."

love how the BBC has an article about how amazon plans to exponentially increase their groceries selling business, and at no point in the article do they stop and go "you guys think it's kinda fucking scary how amazon owns like everything now? maybe this could be a problem"

ever wonder why your train is late in the mornings sometimes? well,

I think it's been months now for me. Since that Covid thing started…

Wait no, it's probably even longer than that. I don't particularly like to shake hand or hug with strangers/coworkers so…

Wow, this is somewhat depressing…

Chaque fois que j'ai une rencontre avec ma psy, je prend des notes sur les trucs qu'on a discuté. Quand je relis mes notes du passé, je constate à quel point j'ai vraiment beaucoup évolué. Souvent même très rapidement.

C'est pour ça que je prend des notes sur tout! Parce que sinon j'oublie trop facilement.

Some awesome things about my native language, Tagalog, on #NonBinaryDay:
- No gendered pronouns ("siya" is for everyone)
- No distinction between gender for a lot of relationships ("kapatid" means sibling)
- No grammatically gendered nouns or articles ("ang")
- The common form of many nouns is neutral. ("doktor" isn't always a male doctor, it's just anyone who's a doctor)
- It's entirely possible (even common) to tell a story and not mention anyone's gender.

Gender is a construct. 🇵🇭
