Are yall ready for Galentine's Day tomorrow? I've got all of the best people in my life here and I'm ready to celebrate and share the love.

📚
Cottagecore Was Just the Beginning - Kaitlyn Tiffany, The Atlantic
Cottagecore may be birthed from queer - especially trans - teens, but we can't forget that it, like everything these days, is being co-opted by problematic groups. Mainly tradwives and white supremacists.

There is so much aesthetic that you can surely find one that fits you. I'm partial to adventurecore and forestpunk.

Stripping the Power From Male Desire - Ming Ye, Sixth Tone
I've been wanting to get into photography by doing some tasteful nude photography of my partners. Now I want to even more and make it queer art.

Love how many people responded because they still thought that they'd get sex for this.

Is This Beverly Hills Cop Playing Sublime’s ‘Santeria’ to Avoid Being Live-Streamed? - Dexter Thomas, Vice
Gotta love the ingenuity while hating the cops.

A Teenager Has Remade Myspace and Everyone Is Loving It - Laura Holliday, Vice
A lot of my friends shared links to their SpaceHey profiles lately, but just like original MySpace I can't be bothered to sign up. It still looks cool! And I remember how much MySpace helped people get started in web dev, so I'm down for more of that fun.

Twitter’s Jack Dorsey wants to build an app store for social media algorithms - Jacob Kastrenakes, The Verge
Remember how Twitter wants to remake Mastodon and the fediverse? How about letting us mix and match how we see things online even more individually? This won't turn out badly at all.

Feds tracking down hacker who tried to poison Florida town's water supply - Jeff Pegues, CBS News
Cool, good to know that I'm just a hack away from folks making my water taste like death.

Why I Still Use RSS
Gosh I need to do more through RSS.

Some things Jeff Bezos can do with his $193 billion - Elizabeth Lopatto, The Verge
We know that there's plenty that could be done If I Had the Money that Bezos Has. Well now he has even more, so surely he'll make time after stepping down as Amazon CEO to do something good with it.

Anyone wanna get one of these for me? 😁

Rebecca Black - Friday (Remix) ft Dorian Electra, Big Freedia & 3OH!3
Kinda love how Rebecca Black fully leans in and turns her hit song into a 100 gecs inspired work.

russelbuck - Data Soup Demos (Official Album Stream)
New Data Soup demo album out and I just spent some time reading to it this week.

A Thousand Ways of Seeing a Forest
Jacob Geller videos are so soothing that even when they meander around the woods they are interesting and worth a deep dive into.

Game Theory: GameStop Made MILLIONAIRES Overnight... Now What?
Good call to action: don't just become the nouveau riche and keep pushing others down. Give back! Become more!

RUSSIAN CYBERPUNK FARM // РУССКАЯ КИБЕРДЕРЕВНЯ
I like this look of a realistic future in which technology and humans work together with the kind of charm that real cyberpunk envisions.

Food Theory: You Can TASTE This Video... Soon...
I'm ready for taste-o-vision to be a thing. That'll make the baking shows even better!
