When purposefully mishearing song lyrics gave me a new name for rpg characters:
In the song "bigmouth strikes again" by The Smiths, there is the line
"Now I know how Joan of Arc felt."
I had that song stuck in my head for a few days and at some point I tried to interpret the line as
"Now I know <name of a person>"
I tried to turn the phonetics of the rest into a name and I ended up with
Hauchon of Arkfeld
First name sounds Spanish, but the last name could be German or Danish... 😄
Der Rigaer IKEA-Parkplatz ist genau so groß wie 2 Blocks im Stadtzentrum mit 40 Gebäuden. Interessant, dass die Leute bei großen Geschäften problemlos mehrere 100 m laufen können, kleine Läden aber gefälligst Parkplätze direkt vor der Tür haben müssen. https://twitter.com/otucis/status/1176128104877711360
Live fire/police scanner audio from San Francisco processed and mixed with ambient and experimental music.
A surreal audio zeitgeist of the city.
I bought a cheap 800mm mirror lens a while ago and I made a picture to compare it's quality to my other lenses.
On the right you see the output of the 800mm lens.
On the left you see a picture I took with my Canon EF 200mm 4L IS, zoomed to 400% for comparison
It's completely expected, that the 800€ lens performs better than the 150€ one, but it's interesting, how the atmospheric distortion kinda levels this difference. But this building was 2.5km away...
Queer Culture has been teaching me so much 😸 It means so much to be part of the community 💙💙💖💖🤍🤍💖💖💙💙 https://redd.it/gng0kr
The JS ecosystem believes that tiny packages with decentralized maintainership are best, but it also put all of those packages in a centralized repository owned by a private for-profit company, so it gets to experience the risks and failures of both of those mistakes.
I was playing around with color channels, trying to get something like the first picture, when I found out, that taking the black channel from a CMYK picture is pretty nice. (see second picture)
Interestingly I had to extract the black channel from a jpg. When I tried with the raw, it was completely glitched...

Pandemic • China • America • politics
@ak Especially on a crisis, you’d think working together world be the important part.
TBH, propaganda bothers me more coming from western countries. China doesn’t really hide its authoritarian nature. People in western countries, on the other hand, act as if they’re just so much better while buying into the exact same us vs them rhetoric. The hypocrisy is infuriating.
