i might not have a darkroom or a scanner at my disposal anymore but that doesn't stop me from shooting as if i did

(three dramatic black and white photos of trails through dense woods before any foliage growth, a river valley in the distance, flattened grass, mysterious vibes)

last night i watched two movies on mubi.com - i realise many are already oversubscribed on streaming sites but if you like movies with representation outside the mainstream i can't recommend mubi enough

I'm rubbish at finding people to follow. Things I'd like on my TL: plants, rewilding, solarpunk, wild camping/swimming/climbing, urban greenery, urban adventures, DIY, crafting, carpentry, cooking, brewing, makerspaces, yoga, sewing, very basic programming (like, raspberry Pi? IDK), queer homemaking

...that you can do from an urban apartment

Jenny Odell, in her book 'How to do Nothing', describes going to see a John Cage performance made up of unscripted "noise", where the instruments included body noises, a blender and liquids pouring. She found it funny - most of the audience did. But on her way home she was suddenly aware of the screech of a tram or the hum of a traffic light. The world had not changed, but her perception had.

This is probably in vain but: is anyone traveling from Ukraine to Germany (Berlin/Brandenburg area) some time soon and would be willing to transport a cat for me? Cat has all international papers and vaccinations etc. already.

Funny how your relationship to a song changes over time. Here's one that started as almost a novelty, one that my friends and I used to chant the chorus to annoy people. It stuck around in my head and on a ratty old cassette, taped from the radio.
Years later I realised it was a credible early / track. Now, more years later it reminds me of a night at Studio 24 in Edinburgh, dancing like a maniac to try and prove that you _can_ move your feet to each individual beat and don't have to do half time.
At 30 years I suppose this is now technically a Golden Oldie...

Today's harvest: Beefsteak fungus (Fistulina hepatica)
This thing has many names. In German it's also called "Leberreischling", "Leberpilz" or "Ochsenzunge" (ox tongue).

Oh, it's lots of Muslimgauze remixes ; collabs, nice.

For the first time I think, I'm having the "listening to and enjoying an unknown / forgotten album in my collection" experience in a non-physical / digital way.
I must have ripped it, I assume it's one off of the Wire magazine but I don't remember it. Whatever D.O.R. stands for, their Almanac says they had a pretty good 2004.

It might have been recommended to me by someone On Here but I'm just now getting to this from LARB on and it's very good indeed:

Stealing twitter.com/droog811 ’s tweet:

"I’ve asked this before but I’ll ask it again: What band is the loudest you’ve ever seen in concert? For me it has to be Dinosaur Jr. They were so loud I could feel my organs bouncing around inside of me.”

My answer(s):
Stadium: Rolling Stones in 1994 with Foo Fighters opening, Meadowlands

Club: Motorhead in either 2002 or 2003 at Lupo’s in Providence

I already asked this question, maybe things changed.

If I want to write a piece of music with super alien intervals like... quarter or third tones⸮😒
What music software (with a staff) can I use on linux?

Musescore can notate it but you don't have immediate feedback (there is a plugin that give some help, but I want to hear the note when I put the accidental).

Ideally I want to go up to 72 divisions of the octave (too many notes but subsets are manageable and some are really familiar).
