so for , a bit late this week, I've done... this. it's a bit of a freeform cross-legged tie, because I just felt like it. it was a quick fun tie, I'll try to do something more involved/thought out next week

gonna go to fujifilm HQ, find the person who made camera remote, and [redacted] them with extreme prejudice

they're going back for free while everyone else has to pay for the first round. and the reaction should be "everyone should go for free", of course, but yeah it's understandable to be angry at this. idk, I just... hadn't even considered it before that

Show thread

and so when I first read this my reaction was like. hey, cool, older folks can go and learn, that's how it should be. then I saw the angry comments and it took a while to process. of course, they went to college for cheap in the 70s and now they're going back for free? unfair

Show thread

and I had not even considered that this wasn't a thing in the US as a consequence of the price of education. of course I had integrated that it was so fucking expensive and that most everyone had large student loans that took decades to repay. but I hadn't thought about that

Show thread

I remember when university of minnesota made university cheap for people over 60 and americans exploded with rage and at first I could not imagine why. it's a relatively common thing in europe for older folks to go back to school, I mean, it's free, and they have time, right?

could you develop film in an ultrasonic cleaner. like putting the whole ta k in the ultrasonic cleaner. it keeps a stable temperature and does shake the tank continuously…?

it's just my hair I am not in a secret cabal with every other person who dyed their hair blue? anyway, I think about it a lot. two men in a month with blue hair

Show thread

are you saying two is a lot or are you saying two is not many? cause I uh generally see at least two people with colored hair in a day if I just step outside of my apartment but I guess upstate it's not so common. and either way what do you want me to say about it?

Show thread

like obviously im not gonna talk about gender with a random person in the line to piss at a gas station in the middle of fucking nowhere, but also: okay? how am I supposed to react to this. like, cool, I guess?

Show thread

she finally came up to me and told me "I love your hair color!" and I was like oh thank god, thanks it's starting to fade now so I'll redo it soon-ish, and then she said "you know, you're the second man I've seen this month with blue hair" and I. had no idea how to respond
