This summer, our recycling program joins forces with @Genoeg@twitter.com Magazine to increase the collection of mobile phones ➡️ https://frphn.co/recyclingpartnership_tw
Half of the recycling profit will go to @JaneGoodall_NL@twitter.com and its programme to protect chimpanzees and their habitat. #WeAreFairphone
A Whale's Lantern is a music project that pairs up musicians at random to collaborate - we have released two albums so far and the third round is currently happening. You can listen to the previous songs here:
If you buy one of the albums, you:
- directly support the involved musicians
- support Mastodon development (we donate a share of the sales)
- get a download code for another album by one of the artists
It looks like video.blender.org is a #PeerTube instance! It's really cool to see Blender supporting this after their bad experience with YouTube.
Has anyone running been able to subscribe to them, either using PeerTube itself or Mastodon/Pleroma? I can send the follow request from Mastodon, but can't seem to get it to work on the PeerTube side.
Which is a shame, because I would be more than happy to watch Blender's videos.
i kinda like this track
it's very pop and possibly cheesy, but it moves the hell of some of my emotions. could also be i cannot read into the manipulation and superficiality.
also, the choreography is pretty nice!

If you sample-slice a Romantic-era piano piece, that's called Frederic Chopinscrew
I'm against pay-walls,
but I'm offering a "private studio visits" to my patrons, who are supporting me to create and publicly release free cultural works under CC licence.
The "visits" are an access to previews and works in progress.
I will post a collage of music from Ferlin's Antigone I just composed for. This music will be a released at the end of the month and another version end of October - hopefully in a very special physical package.
I deeply appreciate that my partnership and friendship with @luka that began with A Whale's Lantern collaboration (we wrote and produced Alchemist's Dream) has extended beyond #MusicCollab. A request for a poem led to participation in a beautiful art project that merges music, art and ideas. Thank you, Luka! It's lovely.
Back in the studio.
Before I start making order I played myself a vinyl I ordered from France for a project purposes. This instrumental version of Donna Summer's "She Works For The Money" is not available on CD.
I shot a short video on my mobile and used a free "Video Transcoder" app for android to get its filesize from 50megs to 5mb.
(@fdroidorg didn't want to give me a compatible version, so I downloaded apk from project's github)
Spent a wonderful day:
- took a dog on the last long walk to beautiful sunny hot Istrian nature
- helped S put away the tribune
- drove to Pula for a long coffee with M's friend
- swimming & sunbathing for about 3 hours on a beach for dogs
- late lunch at a discovered local village restaurant
- one last producer meeting, the car is packed, ready to drive into the sunset towards hometown of Ljubljana.
The show was successfully finished, I'm quite satisfied with the music & sound.
i just got a card jacked by a skimmer at a local gas station, and when i dialed the fraud prevention number i got put on hold for 5 minutes and then it was a _robot voice complete with fake throat clearing noises_ and i didn't twig that it was failing the turing test until it berated me to read the full name on my card instead of responding to what i'd said and then condescendingly told me "that's better".
the actual cyberpunk dystopia is so fucking lame.
I'm coming out of hiatus for a few minutes to give yinz a heads up:
To my fellow photosensitive epileptic friends: DO NOT go see the Incredibles 2. Apparently, there's a lot of scenes with strobe lights -- and, from what I understand, one clocks in at about two minutes solid. At no point are there any warnings.
It's hard to believe that, in this day and age, stuff like this is still being made, and without warnings, at that. But here we are.
Anyway, that's all the information I have.
Is there a "REDECENTRALIZE NOW!" shirt somewhere?
Neoliberals: Ooh, look at you looking so presentable and talkin’ so smoothly about human rights and social justice. Let’s hang sometime.
Also neoliberals: oh, wait, so you actually want to change the system I benefit extraordinarily from? What are you, some sort of communist or something?
