#Fedivision announcement!

The Fedivision Song Contest (#FSC) will accept entries until Friday, 28th midnight CEST, so we have enough time to find collaborators if needed (#FedivisionCollab), come up with beautiful songs for the fictional country or faction you would like to represent.
Also, we won't run into scheduling troubles with this other music contest named #ESC.
\o/
Spread the word, have fun! I'm looking forward to the weekend of the 29th/30th when voting will take place!

DOUZE POINTS!

I just had a terrible idea. Would anyone in the fediverse be interested in a fedivision song contest?
And participating?
I... I think I would like that!

The images on LowTechMagazine are just so, so shit and it's so, so unnecessary.

And they've been told repeatedly that they could just use regular JPEG images with basic compression settings and get the same efficiency, but they still use Shitty Dithering™ because it suits their aesthetic.

In case you haven't noticed, and this is key to enjoying Low Tech Magazine responsibly, their aesthetic is "you can have nice things but only if they are also shit".

I love their writing and research and the fact that they dredge up great stuff to learn from, but you can really skip all the anprim subtext, along with the anprim images.

Yes, this week's Blindboy podcast was absolute class. It really does feature a 4 foot Limerick born highwayman, naked, riding an ostrich, robbing English in 19th Century Australia.
