With Net Neutrality on the verge of being axe I’m starting to really worry about my future here. This is important to me an probably any artist who uses the internet to gain a living. We need as many people voting against this as possible. 

 1.Go to This Link (They made it complicated to navigate their site and make it a chore to voice your opinion against them directly, so this takes you straight to the goods. )

2. Hit “express” on the right hand side 

3. Fill this out and hit Continue to review screen. Done!

I don’t know how effective this is (Instructions by John Oliver), but it’s worth a shot! Reblog this and spread the word!

Idk how the FCC functions, but if it’s anything like the policy office at my agency, actually, these comments are SUPER important. So, please take half a second to do this.

“When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole. We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance. Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone. A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket.”

-Nikola Tesla, 1926

Who wants a flying car or a lunar colony when you can have the digital and networked future of the 1990s with Dancing Baby gifs, flame wars, and GeoCities? 

And all of it accessible at a dizzyingly fast 56k!

Thesis: People hate social media and the concept of internet friends because it breaks through societal control of social interactions. White kids who live in towns that are 98% white aren’t supposed to have black or brown friends. Teenagers aren’t supposed to know 15 other kids their age who are LGBT, lest they question their own gender and/or sexuality. There are people who hate that kids and young adults are making friends in places other than school, work, place of worship, places within the local community, and family connections, because those are the places where you meet people who are “your kind”, and now it doesn’t matter what worldview adults try to instill in their children. They can be exposed to several other world views, some of which may conflict with the one they were brought up with, by talking to people online from 5 different countries.

oh i thought people hated it because there aren’t really “visual” interactioms with online persons, such as eye contact or body language

This is another reason people hate it. They see neurodivergent people making friends online and they don’t think it’s good for them because we’re not practicing all of the skills we need in the “real world” so they say these internet friends don’t count because we didn’t work as hard for them as people we met through irl interactions that could often be awkward and scary for us.

It also throws a wrench in the plans of abusive parents who want to isolate their children and the plans of parents of

disabled dependent adults who move to tiny deserted communities to hhide the fact that the have *gasp* A DISABLED SON/DAUGHTER. Because the children of these parents now have a support network of people other than them!

Tumblr: #this fucking donut #can we talk about this fucking donut for a minute #can we #because on this donut #the sprinkles just comfortably melt into the icing #you can tell that they are so perfectly in tune with each other #and they’ve come so far from when the sprinkles just sort of sat on top #barely touching for fear of rejection #just ugh I can’t #otp: comfortably melting

4chan: here’s a picture of someone putting their dick in a donut.

reddit: that donut needs to go back into the kitchen and make me a sandwich.

academia.edu: Here is a pdf of the seminar paper I wrote about the erotics/poetics/semiotics/science of donut eating.

deviantArt:I did not steal this donut. I traced it so now it’s mine.

It got better

Fanfic.net: The donut is the setting for a high school AU, were two sprinkles meet and realise they have more in common than they ever thought possible, however, the mean chocolate sauce has caught wind of their secret relationship. Will they be able to make it together before it’s too late? M for a lemon flavoured donut.

This has officially become one of my favorite posts.

I JUST REBLOGGED BUT FANFIC MADE IT PERFECT

Did anyone notice how quickly the internet turned into a
Lovecraftian horror scenario?

Like we’ve got this dimension right next to ours, that
extends across the entire planet, and it is just brimming with nightmares. We
have spambots, viruses, ransomware, this endless legion of malevolent entities
that are blindly probing us for weaknesses, seeking only to corrupt, to thieve,
to destroy.

Add onto that the corrupted ones themselves, humans who’ve
abandoned morality and given up faces to hunt other people, jeering them,
lashing out, seeing how easy it is to kill something you can’t touch or see or
smell. They’ll corrupt anything they think could be a vessel for their message
and they’ll jabber madly at any who question them. Their chittering haunts
every corner of the internet. They are not unlike the spambots in some ways.

Add on top of that the arcane magisters, who are forever
working at the cracks between our world and the world we made. Some of them do
it for fun, some of them do it for wealth, others do it for the power of
nations unwise enough to trust them. There are mages who work to defend against
this particular evil, but they are mad prophets, and their advice is almost
never heeded, even by those who keep them as protection.

All people know several spells to use the internet. Facebook
asks you for the magic words to log in, so does your email, so does your
twitter and on and on. The spells are words or a gesture with the hand, some
use the colour of your eyes, or the shape of your finger. Our chief of security
joked about requiring users to give a drop of blood before they could log in.
Many do not understand the humour of mages.

The cracks between the two are breaking. IP cameras filled
our world with eyes and the magisters learned how to open almost all of them.
We all carry magic slabs of glass that if you hold it up to your ear can sing to
you with a loved one’s voice, but if you look at it with your eyes, can show
you a corrupted human with bleeding orange skin scream the profane with a
thousand voices. The other day I saw someone hack a moving vehicle. At one
point they made it stop. At another they made it so it couldn’t stop. Some of our best and brightest are going to create
an army of four winged bats hovering throughout every city and we are going to
connect them directly to the dimension where the nightmares live.

I’m not saying it’s all bad, but I am saying Cthulhu lies
deathless dreaming in this web we built him and he is waking up.
