long, meta, pretentious explanation of why this "place" is different
This is an archipelago.
It's not one place but a series of islands of differing sizes and closeness. You've landed on the shores of one of them that you like and set up camp. You can always hear what your neighbours are talking about and you get parcels full of the messages sent out from neighbouring islands.
If it seems too quiet, you can venture out to look at some of the other islands. They each have their own unique culture. Some speak languages you don't understand; some speak your language but use it in ways you don't understand, yet. Some places they seem to talk of only machines, or politics, or music. In others they make art for their neighbours to enjoy. Some are ruled over by a laird, others are democracies. All islands display their rules clearly; most enforce them justly.
You're not tied to the island you're currently on. You could set up a home on another island, many other islands if you please. Perhaps here you will write poems, while over the horizon you will learn how to repair a broken computer. Argue vigourously on one island, return to another to enjoy the views of your neighbours' gardens.
All these places are accessible to you. You can befriend people on any island and receive visitors or not, as you choose.

I can think of Bromton and Dahon. Any tips on these, or suggestions for others? Preferably available secondhand in Denmark.

it's done! this is the last KONPEITO mix, I held off releasing it because I am a creature of ritual but now I've been able to gift this tape to solderpunk to say thank you to him for Gemini and what it's inspired me to create.
digital version should be up on konpeito.media tomorrow as a thank you to you all, you who've listened to and shared the tapes, you who've created your own works around our underground Internet and you who've encouraged me and inspired others to create.

Extremely nerdy ink/paper question
The paper in my fancy #Moleskine notebook does not get on well with the pen I'm using (Parker rollerball, also their Quink in a fountain pen). It bleeds through, or else spreads too wide.
I'm not changing the pens because (a) no disposables and (b) I bought a huge batch of cartridges years ago and they're still not near finished. So when this book is full, I'll be looking for a different brand of notebook.
Anyone got any recommendations for something like a moleskine but with more compatible paper?
@aussocialadmin suggested an #introduction post, so why not eh? I'm Vince, I live in Melbourne (Wurundjeri Country), and am a composer (all kinds of #music) and producer (also all kinds of #music & #soundart). I'm not great at social media, and have been on a bit of a mission to reduce my reliance on restrictive platforms (and actually engage in community, broadly speaking). I'm also a music academic and work in that world. This feels a bit like signing up for Myspace did way back when, but, I dunno, not at all like that. 😅
