If you want a straightforward, practical project to help contribute to leftist, anticapitalist, and anarchist movements, then learn a new language. It is without a doubt one of the most limiting factors in our movements.

What is happened in Iran earlier this year? If I knew farsi I could maybe tell you, but instead I just know what the NYT said happened.

Saw Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst with Better Oblivion Community Center at the showbox last night 🖤🖤🖤

If that is the last show i get to see at the showbox before they tear it down and put up a skyscraper it will at least feel appropriate

Thinking about switching careers to do all of the "before" portraits in the learn-to-draw genre of books

I really have that style down pat

Just found out sureshot in the UD is closing this month 😞

Spending Thursday night bingeing through this podcast called «The Dream». It's all about multilevel marketing scams.

Hard not to feel it to your bones that capitalism is a scam when you can listen to audio of every US president since reagan trying to sell you on amway

Here's bush 1:

I never had imaginary friends as a kid...

But I have my fingers crossed to one day be reminiscing about an old friend with my parents and have them look at me like, "Who are you talking about? You spent that summer alone."

Does anyone know about #servicedogs/#assitancedogs, #mobility specifically, or dog anatomy/is a #veterinarian that can explain something to me?

My dog is tall enough that to steady myself, i can just put my hand on her back. I feel like she doesn't need a bracing harness, but I do want her to do a tiny about of light guidance, if you will. Can I just use a leash attached to her (ruffwear) harness?

is this jane fonda documentary on hbo as wild as it seems like, or am i just way too high

You know all that history you feel like you need to quickly learn about to catch up with everyone else

Climate change thought of (my) day: 'I should buy mosquito nets'

how I got there:

- seattle doesn't have mosquitoes due to climate
- seattle has a high amount of anti-vax fuckwits
- as temperature increases, mosquitoes will travel to seattle and spread "tropic" diseases to seattle
- because of anti-vaxers the death toll will be high

climate migration and climate refugee crises will exacerbate things

The people who go to shows and then spend the whole time squeezing their way back and forth through the crowd. Always with the look like they are a very important person needing to get somewhere to do important person things. More important than watching the show that they for some reason find themselves at...

What IS that?! Where are they always going
