@feoh I really like upcycles within the spirit of the original machine like when the original mainboard and CPU are in place but upgrades and connectivity are built into the original schematic.

@pixouls my dog is called Ponyo. Can confirm that she loves ham.

@chebe I do not like the idea of getting advice from a cartomantic device imbued with the dissatisfied ghosts of unpaid and uncredited artists.

@car it's not actually mine, @tj brought it to EMFcamp for me to borrow on long-term loan!

re: ukpol 

@alex that is beautifully succinct and insightful. I'd like to call it an analogy but it's kinda not.

Just saw Yayoi Kusama's infinity mirrors at the Tate Modern. I'd seen one of her infinity mirror installations before, but it was presented without any context on the artist herself so whilst it was pretty, it was no big deal to me.

This time, in the context of her hallucinations and experience of self-obliteration through being subsumed into patterns, it took on a whole different meaning and I was able to (for all of 2 minutes a pop) actually throw myself into the experience.

I probably got more disassociation than ego death due to being over-tired and occasionally spotting a figure in the reflections and going "is that me?", but I think that's a pretty fantastic result.

Looking forward to reading more about her and watching some documentaries - I think the experience of trying to manifest your own internal experience of self-obliteration for others is a wonderful inversion of the concept of the more private experience of self-obliteration and monism from (what I understand of) e.g. Buddhism.

@dualhammers Also I love the unbordered Rider-Smith-Waite deck and I'd love to see a shot of the cloth at some point if you'd be amenable to that <3

@polezaivsani I'm inclined to believe they're just selfish assholes personally but to each their own

@chebe I only wanted to be a wizard once I’d already grown up and discovered everything you’re supposed to want to be is cynical and terrible.

Definitely get the eccentric inventor vibe off of you <3

I’m trying not to be a total misanthropic hermit but y’all insist on watching reels without headphones on public fucking transport and it drains every ounce of patience and kindness from me.

I feel like my life is constantly unpicking beliefs about myself that I built up slowly by mistake without realising.
