The nutty thing about ratchet, as a slang term, is that it stands as a perfect example of itself.

Even though I'm not using my Twitter anymore, I run across things from there sometimes:

These are ppl who are in a constant war w/their own brain, ppl who are battling their own thoughts & fears; hearing every day from their brains they arent good enough,strong enough,skinny enough,that ppl dont like them or that they should hav done better just to list a few things

The whole thread is amazing, truthful, brave, and necessary.

Setting aside any political opinions you may have regarding his election or job performance as President, you have to acknowledge that Mr. Donald J. Trump is a terrible excuse for a human being.

Man, I'm trying an experiment today to work with keeping my iPad on my desk for Slack, email, and calendar — so that only my editor and terminal are on my laptop.

It's working really well, except that I keep having moments where I reach for my laptop screen by mistake. 😕

Critical Mass, but for horseback riders

Hey, other static site generators – a lot of you sure are pretty, but getting me to give up Pelican isn't going to be easy.

Ramon Project UPDATE:

  1. You know, I originally directed my initial pitch toward "musicians". I more recently realized that wasn't a mistake exactly, but much too limited. I feel like I barely count as a musician myself, and in any case am always keenly interested to work in the spirit of Punk Rock, in its broadest, abstract, and ideal sense: Punk not as a particular sound, but as an ethic of working that severely discounts "professionalism" in art and promotes enthusiasm, commitment, independence, and non-conformity as highest values in both aesthetics and ethics. Perhaps the best analogy I can think of to the group I hope to assemble for this mission would be the Portsmith Sinfonia. So, if the idea intrigues you, but you weren't sure what you could do: by all means please get on board and you can at least bang on a can or help make flyers or what have you—and I would be most pleased to have you make your debut on an instrument you've never played before.

  2. Speaking of getting on board, while any and all interested parties are welcome as ever to email or Signal me (details in the blog header), the canonical option for "signing up" or at least indicating your interest is to head over to the brand-new Ramon Project forum, create an account, and start posting. I've done what I can to test it out, but if anyone has technical or other trouble getting going over there, please get in touch and let me know.

Thanks once again for your kind attention, and please consider sharing this post.
