A moment of diasporic joy: I'm working the front desk at the LGBTQIA center at UC Davis and an older Chinese lady comes in for resources. I tell her 中文也可以. I tell her 欢迎来到美国. She asks me if my parents know and I get to tell her yes.

Yesterday endured Black Panther. If you enjoyed the film about a warrior woman winning ww2 this is out of the same mould.

Been to The Light Cinema to watch Isle of Dogs. Only fell asleep twice. On leaving my friend said "Great. Really looking forward to going home and cleaning my oven."

The Chinese have been in Liverpool for centuries. They have brought a few mates along and put on a show.

The Terracotta Warriors are here.

Interesting exhibition. Must prebook. All tickets are timed but once you are in nobody is doing "hurry along there!"

Value for money.

Not posting pictures. Loads online.

Get down to Liverpool. Enjoy the exhibition. Get down to Chinatown. Enjoy your meal. Hit the town. Collapse . Rinse repeat.

This site has been left hanging for years. Something wrong in this country. Shortage of accommodation and still people are sitting on land. Sick.

This is the first time this year my bike has been out of the shed. It's been too cold, too wet, too windy - today is Goldilocks perfect.

Hello Mastodon. It's been a long time since I've logged in! I think I need more accounts to follow.

Laurie Anderson is amazing https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Vkfpi2H8tOE
This piece is so good. It's got a lot about 80s phone culture and answering machines going on it, which is a major theme in her early work, but there's a very forward, present theme about US military intervention. 'Here come the planes. They're American planes.' and the part about 'chemical arms' and 'electronic arms'.
I bought an album several years ago that was a live performance of this piece from late in the month of September in 2001. The liner notes talked about the intensity of the 'here come the planes' section and the lasting consequences of us imperialism.
I love the political at of the 70s and 80s that's uncompromising in both the art and the politics and this is such a brilliant example of it that charted. Such a wonderful piece.

PC giving me Disc read error contl/alt/delete to restart. The good news is it did restart. However, Mr Google says that the HD may be on its way out. Yes there are other things I can try, cables, ram etc but what I really would like to do is to back up my data.

What software would you recommend for the job? Have been using Karen's Replicator but for some reason, W10 update?, it has fallen off planet.

Help!

Please keep in mind that not everyone is in a privileged enough position to be able to delete Facebook or Twitter, that they need it for staying connected with their network etc.

However, you can still encourage them to start building a new network here, and you can help them by recommending them directly to an instance you think would fit them!

Hey, I've got another blog post up on Medium, and it's another I think y'all might like. It's all about the centralization of power on the internet and how that basically sucks for everyone!

If you wanna take a look, I'd really appreciate it :)

I have nearly 2k followers on Twitter and I’m a bit shy of 800 here yet I consistently get much higher quality interactions on my posts here than there.
