I made a September 2018 Mixtape: elanmorgan.com/blog/elan-septe. It crosses a few genres and decades, and you can listen on both Spotify and Apple Music.

I need to get past feeling HULK SMASH every time someone says that no one has any privacy anymore so you may as well keep handing your info over.

YOUR FEELING OF SECURITY IS AN EXTENSION OF PRIVILEGE.

JUST BECAUSE PRIVACY THIEVES ARE NICE NOW DOESN'T MEAN THEY'LL BE NICE LATER.

WE DON'T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS.

In my early 20s, a psychiatrist told me I had anxiety. I said that I'd heard the word, but I couldn't grasp what it meant, because the feeling was so foreign to me. He said it was the water I swam in, which is why I couldn't see it. Then I saw it, and I could start a growth process I desperately needed.

Sometimes you have to step out of the water, or find someone who can lend you a hand to step out of it.

Do you think it's contraindicated to watch shows about cult murders while you're sitting in front of your seasonal depression lamp?

Maybe if I eat something I can shake this fatalism.

So far, my relationship to Mastodon is to drop in and say something random every couple of days. Birbsite is doubling down on elevating the worst. Fackbook is still fine with fomenting genocide, apparently. I miss the early days of just about anything when we found our people rather than our mobs.

I'm trying out CBD oil for inflammation issues. I'm sceptical but will to do it for a month.

Good morning, toots! I'm planning on making today mine mine mine so I can breeze through the latter part of this week. Let's see how I do.

One of the most important things I ever learned is that my feelings can give me important information both about myself and the world, but I am not my feelings. They are a state, not an identity. The problem is that I keep forgetting that I know this.

Twitter; Jack Dorsey being even more awful 

Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads. And if not enough people looked at the ads for Target or a legal firm specializing in slip-and-falls, then their bus route stopped existing. How stupid would that be. That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.

I have to drive 258km/160miles alone today, and I'm procrastinating by writing to-do lists and finding gifs.
