The Longness of You

Between the longness of you
And my shortness of breath
Cicadas sing
Our moon falls into shadow

Video: ffmpeg, with heavy postprocessing in ShotCut and iMovie
2016, from the Dronecast project.
Titles: inkscape, and no I’m not satisfied with them. I just had to stop, I had to stop. So I stopped with the promise that my next video will have better title/credit cards.

Technical Issues

I’m not receiving email from any of this domains addresses. If you need to reach me use any of my social media accounts.

I’m trying to resolve this as quick as I can with Bluehost tech support.

In the meantime I have deactivated Cloudflare (to prove its innocence in all this). The move may have introduced bugs, and the site might lag more than normal.

We’re working on it 😀

PS: the issue is mail is being sent directly to dev/null
If anyone can help me with that.

It happens to coincide with the latest update to dovecot

Welcome Google Play Music Podcast Listeners

FBI Scrutiny in Denton? – Texas Sharon’s Bluedaze

I had no idea that the tactics of mainstream politics have seeped into municipal governance.
I guess Marx was right: “The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas”.

It saddens me.

Did you receive a receive a shiny mailer today in your mailbox claiming there is FBI scrutiny in Denton and warning of subversives? Must be election time.

Bernie Sanders because a poor kid from Brooklyn is tougher than a silver spoon from Queens

What’s up with all the Bernie?

I’m kinda happy how this FB comment came out. Someone said something like, “what’s up with all the Bernie talk, you guys as as adamant as Trump!”

My first response was something like, “yeah, we’re a passionate folk, I guess.
Is this your first political campaign?”

On receiving no reply, I went ahead and had my say:

Thanks to the internet (which could go away, any minute now) you’re being afforded the opportunity to hear what people are thinking about.
And we’re all thinking about the same thing. We’re thinking about the election. We’re thinking about how November will affect the rest of US and World history. It’s an important one.

This is the open debate that goes on behind the scenes that the media are oblivious to. And it certainly is an exciting one.

Now that you’re aware of it, you’ll be hearing it everywhere. At the water cooler, and in the elevator.
Park benches and sidewalks. In line waiting for your coffee, people are talking about it. Like everyone. Everyone is talking about the democratic primary!!!
You start seeing little stickers on windows, and little buttons on backpacks, little signs in yards,
And BIG signs on the highways

And you wonder: “wait, is this a thing?”

It’s kinda like Olympics, it comes around every so often and it’s all people can talk about for a while, and before you figure out what all the excitement is about, it’s over 🙁
There’s a pretty closing ceremony though, with torches and dancers.
That’s nice
