Hey people,

There's another going on, in which participants have to use free software to make some music by 30 August. There's a fairly strong suggestion in the rules that it should be a remix this month, so does anybody have something they'd like me to remix? Any style, but it has to be CC-licensed (without "no-derivatives"), and of course it's best if you can provide unmixed audio and/or MIDI files.

If anyone wants to join in with the challenge, details are here: linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.p . CCing @rghvdberg and @unfa, it's their thing.

bot, potentially bad 

@y6nH I don't really have a favourite. It's a very important thing to me, and I've been doing a lot of research on it in the last few months.

@RumPartov Never mind that, what's your favourite IKEA product?

reduce your ableist language (contains examples of same) 

Thereโ€™s a *lot* of ableist language in common parlance. These words and similar ones exist as slurs towards neurodivergent folks in particular. Try pushing yourself to replace/eliminate them.

crazy, insane, mental โžก๏ธ wild, surprising, hectic
dumb, stupid โžก๏ธ foolish, silly
idiot, moron, dumbass โžก๏ธ bigot, asshole, fool

In addition, you are encouraged to think through what youโ€™re trying to say better, and address what the real issue worth criticising is. And if you canโ€™t rephrase it, maybe it didnโ€™t need to be said at all.

My new album is out. Eight tracks of disquieting drone/ambient/shoegaze, inspired by anxiety, climate grief, crustaceans, the coast, and nuclear power. blacktent.bandcamp.com/album/d

@blinry Nice.

I think one of the oils was wrong, maybe a fragrance oil rather than food grade. It just tasted very strongly bitter.

I've tried the Cube cola at the actual Cube, and it's pretty good when they make it, so we messed something up.

@blinry Is this the Cube recipe? We tried it and it came out really horrible, so I wish you better luck!

LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

even if it was 3 million, we could still take every single one of them and have the moral imperative to fucking do so especially when you consider that we're the ones who fucked up where they used to live. and even those obsessed with the 'usefulness' of these asylum seekers to us like fuck me these people are BUILDING their own BOATS to cross the sea, I could barely build myself a boat if you gave me ยฃ500 and a week, the average migrant escaping places like Syria or Libya are gonna be far more useful than my ass lmao

it's bandcamp friday once more - bandcamp are waiving their revenue share for the day so 100% of the money spent goes to the artists/labels

here is a crowd-sourced list of black creators on bandcamp: blackbandcamp.info/#/

if you're able to spend some money supporting black artists, this is a good way to do it

another javascript conundrum 

@monorail
JS frameworks often move the event handlers for components up to the document level, because it's much more efficient once you get a number of them on the page. So you're probably right about that. The details depend on what framework is in use, but if you trigger the event on the select it ought to bubble up to the document. You probably need to provide more details in the event args.

@viennawriter @kashhill seems to have followed 5 people and not posted anything, so maybe she should give Masto another try. For me, it's a big advantage that my real life family and acquaintances aren't here. ๐Ÿ
