#AdNauseam is a lightweight browser extension that blends software tool and artware intervention to actively fight back against tracking by #advertising networks. AdNauseam works like an ad-blocker (it is built atop uBlock Origin) to silently simulate clicks on each blocked ad, confusing trackers as to one's real interests. At the same time, AdNauseam serves as a means of amplifying discontent with advertising networks that disregard privacy and enable bulk surveillance.

Things We Lost in the Flood: A New, Massively Multiplayer Loneliness Simulator Where Players Can Only Share Messages in Bottles With Each Other -- And If Enough Players Win, Self-Destructs
Oh no! I updated my Guix system install last night and today the boot process gets stuck in some loop of trying to start the GUI, or, times out somewhere in there.
Trying to reconfigure from the CLI but tbh not familiar enough with any part of Guix to know how to read the error messages, and due to the whole single-term cli thing, they disappear once i log in anyway <_<
Really taken w/ the description of this #music:
"...Inspired by notions of 15th century choral scores transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths, the album was assembled gradually, with layers of studio-tracked keyboards, choir and woodwinds being woven into the mix, then molded and disfigured through complex programming.
The effect is similar to hearing some ancient strain of sacred music corrupted by encryption..."

Okay so this is cool:
It's like a blog entry, talking about my plans for code, right?
Only instead of just plans, it's got psuedocode of how to implement it.
Only instead of pseudocode, it's real code, that I can export as a source file.
Only instead of just that, I can also run it directly in my text-editor, and pass one bit of code's output to another, and bring multiple snippets together.
And - screenshot included - my editor looks nice.
It's pretty cool.
Airbnb is likely going to force me out of where I live
Roommate asked for some help cleaning the downstairs area. So ofc I helped because I don’t really have a choice if I’m being honest. He started talking about renting the third available room for Airbnb and then asked if I would be willing to switch the queen mattress I’ve been sleeping on with the twin mattress that’s in the other room and I really had no idea what to say. I’m barely able to make rent right now as is. I’m waiting on hearing about this position on Monday but even then I don’t know where I’m going to get paid. I hate this. My parents won’t help me, I literally don’t have a fridge. I am paying 850 dollars for this and I’m not even a real renter. I barely have enough to eat as is and let’s not even think about gas. I’m not on a lease. I’m honestly freaking out rn this is just getting worse. Housing should be a human right
I do things with lambda calculus. Mostly on natural language. Mostly.
