Do parties serve any function other than to intensify feelings of alienation?

So I just watched House Of Gucci and, to be honest, I wasn't expecting much going in. Turns out it's pretty well done! The characters avoid becoming two dimensional tropes and I think there's some really interesting social narratives at play. Well worth a watch imo.

Interested in books, Marxism, the iww, or other leftist projects? Live in Liverpool? Come to the book fair in Casa tomorrow from 11 - 4! I'll be speaking at the event and standing at our stall!

Turns out women can't light cigarettes in the new Cowboy Bebop?

I recently decided to go all-in on trying to have a "writing career" without giving in to monopolistic corporations like Amazon and Google.

I'm selling my fiction directly to fans, Patreon-style, instead of putting myself thru the endless stress of subbing to magazines.

I'm using open-source software, no cookies or trackers. The only "middleman" is the credit card processor (stripe).

Oh, I see xmpp is trending today... a whole day after I started using it! Coincidence? Probably...

Turns out there are some apps that cost money on Google Play that are free on F-Droid... like the xmpp app, 'Conversations' for one... I saved myself £3! That'll go almost all the way to a cup of coffee!

12ft.io/ and boom you are reading that shit.

So, having some """unplanned""" time off has determined that I watch YouTube video essays until midday. I'm watching one by Adam Something and, wow, do they shit up the positive/negative liberty distinction. Essay is otherwise fine, tho. Hmu with some youtuber recs. Not Vaush, plz.
