This.

And it’s not just Putin.

Exploiting greed is the cornerstone of every modern autocrat and wannabe autocrat’s playbook.

When we say capitalism is the slippery slope to fascism this is what we mean.

This is where you end up if your compass has profit as its true north.

Kind of a long-shot here, but if anyone is needing to fly from Texas to Europe in the near future, some relatives of mine had a trip planned 2 years ago that got cancelled due to the pandemic followed by serious heart trouble, and American Airlines has just told them that their ticket vouchers will vanish for good at the end of the month, no exceptions, no doctor's notes, nada.

It'd be nice to at least make AA spend the money to fly something somewhere; get in touch w/ me if that might be you?

Governments and official bodies making semi-official statements with regards to wars and the like on twitter has to be one of the wilder things I've seen online. Over here I see someone's cat, over there I see vaguely threatening statements about deploying a country's nuclear arsenal - potentially from people in a position to do so 🤪

As usual activists are on the sharp end of pointing out our real, actionable problems at home. Yet somehow reclaiming Russian owned property on London is seen as a priority.

I WONDER WHY 🤔👀🙃

There are famous games like Celeste, Bleed, Minit, Baba is you, Superhot, 2064: Read Only Memories, Night Call, Bury me my love, Cook Serve Delicious 2, Towerfall Ascension...

And tons of other good games (not necessarily as famous), and not just games (though it's 60% video games and 30% tabletop RPG games)

Unless you don't like the cause, it's a very good deal

I... I think the game is done...

I THINK THE GAME IS DONE

HOLY SHIT, AFTER A YEAR STRAIGHT OF DEVELOPMENT I THINK THE INTERACTIVE MUSIC VIDEO FOR OUR NEXT SINGLE IS COMPLETE.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE NEW MUSIC.

THE GAME IS FINALLY FUCKING FINISHED!!!!!!!

Just tried to connect to free WiFi in aus and found the only way to login provided was Facebook. Is this pretty common? Feels a little dystopian to force users to with with social for access.

Russia/Ukraine 

Nice to see 'londongrad' trending on twitter, and something that those in the UK can focus on as a meaningful action be elevated in public consciousness. I've been pretty quiet about Ukraine, just because apart from "it's really shit" I haven't really known what to say. I'm not an expert on this, and any expression of solidarity feels a bit hollow really.

It's difficult to see what we can do when the economic situation means we can't make ourselves independent from Russia.

In our spring campaign "Connecting Gardens" we want to help you start growing #OpenSourceGardens and connect you via gardens and beyond borders.

To participate, we send you one of our "starter kits" including multiple varieties of Open Source Seeds: opensourcegardens.info/order-s

Solidarity with London Underground workers today. You work damn hard for little recognition ✊

After what feels like aeons, I've finally seen a speech and language therapist. It turns out that due to a number of factors, including a pretty traumatic emotional breakdown during mid-2020 my larynx is a little tense. I've got vocal exercises to do to remedy this and am going to take singing lessons to re-learn how to use my voice. Whilst it doesn't mean I can get back into the studio immediately, we have a distinct way forward and I should hopefully be operational again soon!

One positive I take from the removal of joe rogan's show from Spotify is that, maybe, a bunch of people are going to suddenly learn about podcatchers and RSS. Maybe. I really hope more people realise that Spotify/Mixcloud/Soundcloud is not the same thing as podcasting.

Something big is very nearly ready. I can practically taste the end of it. The 'done' column is over three times the size of what you see here.

I'm looking forward to sharing it with you and moving on, Hearse Pileup has been sleeping for too long.

I'm sorry, but why is the UK govt website asking me to agree to a cookies and privacy policy agreement to place an order for a lateral flow test? And WHY does the UK govt use Google Analytics as part of that? 👀
