New account, new attempt at an #introduction, I guess
I'm someone who would like #reading, #drawing/creating #art and #writing, particularly in #fantasy and other speculative genres, but between dayjob, trying to keep my home livable, and mental health issues, I mostly just watch video. In addition to fantasy I like #scifi #movies and #series, including #animation.
so i don't have a source for this, i'm just talking to someone about it and they can't find the article they read
but apparently there was a sony executive who was into the paranormal and opened a psy research division
and eventually it closed with some vague handwavy explanation about "we have weird results of things happening more often than they should but there's no way to profit off of it"
capitalism in a nutshell is "we found out that ghosts live in the playstation network but we stopped looking into it because we can't make them work for us"
A chat with a colleague last year or longer ago comes to my mind, because he said he thought people believing conspiracy theories are harmless and amusing...
possibly covid/corona related terrorism
The Robert Koch Institute in Berlin was attacked last night with Molotov cocktails. One broke a window and caused a fire in the room behind, which could be extinguished by a security staffer
Since the RKI has an important role in corona research, and there have been demonstrations against corona-related safety measures in Berlin, a political motivation for the attack is being investigated.
a nice way to listen to music (+)
Oh! I just found out I can listen to mp3s so much better if I lightly rest my fingertips on both speakers! It makes it feel more like how it does when you play an instrument, and you can feel the wavelengths of the vibrations much more specifically, and the left-right difference in the stereo. Even though I test with above-average hearing (which is a superpower that enables me to be more annoyed by vacuum cleaners than the average mortal), listening to music this way brings a whole additional dimension and heightened detail to the music. A+, highly recommended experience.

This episode might be too sad to enjoy continuing posting.
Kid tetectice team, yay!
oh man, not being believed sucks
Pay me to make music for you.
Or boost this. Both are helpful!
aaah, not a reference to an older episode, the series hasn't been going for 15 years.
Is that one of the hunters who killed Sam and Dean that one time?
I don't think that's classic rock I hear, or a period episode I see.
It's sad that our modern culture only seems to recognise Eros as "real" love and everything else is considered lesser somehow.
I think this is part of what bothers me about fandom things. An author can work to carefully sculpt any one of these kinds of love between two characters in a story. But no, they looked at each other one time, so now the whole fandom is obsessed with the idea of the two of them banging.
For me, it often reduces complexity and makes things feel flat and lifeless.
To very briefly summarise, the varieties of love recognised in Ancient Greek philosophy are:
• Agape – love and charity to all
• Eros – sexual, intimate love
• Philia – affection friendship between equals
• Storge – familial love, particularly between parents and children
• Philautia – self-love and acceptance
• Xenia – Hospitality and generosity.
Yes, these are brief summaries. Yes there's more nuance. No, don't @ me about it.
