Existential Friday: Bye-Bye Birdy

With heavy heart I announce the passing of a social media platform -RIP~Twitter. 


Today was my liberation day, I deactivated my Twitter account. Could not see the point, either the whole thing will come down like a burning house of cards, or Musk will salvage something of it, and put up a paywall.


I will watch the mess from my Mastodon Account, which I had since the April. Yesterday, I helped my wife set up an account on another Mastodon art server. To find out who else has an account besides Liz, myself, and Stephen Fry, see “Anyone Here going to Mastodon?” on my Media Literacy blog.


Library life in Monochrome

I was challenged on Twitter by fellow blogger Calmgrove (Chris Lovegrove)  – a black and white photo challenge on the topic of library life. Now that I have been challenged, some fellow bloggers on Twitter will find themselves  called to library duty, starting with Hedy Bach Sloppybuddhist  .

If you haven’t read Fielding’s picaresque novel, History of Tom Jones   link provided. The Flora Fyrdraaca YA fantasy novels are a delight.

Media Literacy question: Why is Scooby Doo featured on Electrasol dishwasher tablets ?

Surreal Thursday: What the Doctor Ordered


Surreal: having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream; unreal; fantastic, phantasmagorical, uncanny, intense hyper-reality, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur. Characteristics associated with art and literature created by founders and followers of cultural movement known as Surrealism.
