This galaxy contains a supermassive black hole hidden by a thick layer of gas and dust.

@liaizon the contrast is too much in the first video here, but i like where it's going.

the second remix is based on the first one, so again too much contrast, but the ffmpeg "displacement maps" are always effectively trippy...

Happy failure

(this was meant to be a normal video, but the satellite receiver that we found on the street and have been using since as a media player can't resist from glitching it in this very creative way)

A #fanzine is not "a fanzine" simply because you call it "a fanzine".

A website with...
- paid ads
- a merchandising section
- a record shop
- an associated public relation consultancy
...does not become "a fanzine" just because contributors aren't paid:
that's just a website whose contributors aren't paid.

> Why can’t I just click a button and follow all the local events for my favorite artist/venue/team/theater/charity? Why do I still have to manually create events and copy and paste details? Why are there so few “add to calendar” and why do they often fail?

It's because of advertising.

Artists, venues, teams, theaters, charities and other performers may themselves not care - they make money on you being there. But everyone else between you and the event, they make money on your attention. They explicitly don't want you to streamline or automate event discovery and attendance scheduling. They want you to visit their pages, and be exposed to ads (whether it's regular ads where they get paid per click, or ads for different events with which they make money on you deciding to attend).

The "attention economy" is, by definition, built on making everything inefficient and full of hassle. To monetize attention, you have to make the users pay it first.

This may be an tired point, but I feel it bears repeating. The problem isn't one of technology - the tech for what you want exists, and actually worked much better in the past. The problem is businesses: they actively don't want you to use the Internet in this way.
