Found the original source text quoting Wang Fu on the nine similarities of a dragon's shape … and it only took three days.
The abortion issue is the November wildcard. I can't quite resolve the perceived 70-80% support for Row within the dual, closed information ecosystems. Without this issue, the November shitshow is almost a lock.https://moondeer.blog/2021/10/09/on-the-obstructionist.html
Reminder, @elonmusk, if you reinstate Trump's Twitter account without reinstating @moondeer, you will have a class action lawsuit coming your way. Fuck around and find out.
The Quetzalcoatl that I had spotted the other day was from Fate/Grand Order.
Going through Miss Kobayahsi's Dragon Maid for the second time (because everything about that show is perfection) and realized that I totally missed that one of the main characters is Quetzalcoatl.
#ToYourEternity, y'all are f$&kin' brutal.
I had no idea the internet archive had gotten this f$&kin' cool. Followed a Wikipedia footnote and ended up with a PDF of Visser's The Dragon in China and Japan published in 1913.
Bee tee dubs, @manton, were you to add a view to Micro.blog's Posts interface constructed with mass selection in mind (perhaps a list where the posts are displayed in a similar manner to the 70 characterish lead text generated for the timeline), I would totally be able to retroactively apply new tags to improve the organization and accessibility of my site tenfold. As it stands, I rarely have the patience to wait for the list to load when I need to make an edit and the list includes a post with 5K words and 20 or so media assets. No way am I gonna sort through 2K posts to apply new tags.
I think if I could have just one of these blue check m0therf$&kers read me, I would want it to be @iamjohnoliver.
I lagged six days 'cause I'm edging towards disconnecting entirely and watching the world burn; but, @iamjohnoliver still be nailing it. He and @AliVelshi remain the only m0therf$&kers I can currently tolerate.
I had no idea LA County was into electing such douchey sheriffs. I always thought a line had been drawn separating y'all from Orange.
These gusts ain't nuttin' to f' wit'. My squirrels must be all Jodie Foster up in them taaayyys inna wiiiiinnnn.
The dragon weaving section (cutting off where I ran out of steam)…
My mind gleans meaning via metaphorical odyssey. This particular expedition's point of origin practically presents itself. Threads are but thin yarns, after all, and what are myths if not stories? Let us explore the storyteller and the threads of thought with which his yarn is spun.
It takes two to tango, John. God, what a dick.
More evidence that I make notes to store the memory and without any intention of ever actually being able to read what I've written, the penciled annotations I just made while perched upon my porcelain throne.
I still don't understand how shit like this happens.
The one to bookmark for when direct action fails to yield 20th century results and you're left wondering what went wrong.https://moondeer.blog/2021/09/26/notes-on-the.html
Being outraged, @AyannaPressley, is not confirmation that you've been paying attention. Read this and prove me wrong.https://moondeer.blog/2021/10/09/on-the-obstructionist.html
The other tricky bit I'm trying to work in before cranking it up to a full blown warp and weft metaphor.
No idea how many times I've just rearranged these bits as I've been writing them. Turns out that nailing a recursive metaphor is tricky.
Logic check. I've been looking at this section too long, looking to balance out my metaphor.
A story is a narrative. Narratives transmit beliefs. Beliefs compose a worldview. So then, must a tapestry when woven with hanks of the storyteller's yarn.
When you use a scientific process to justify a super lame reference…
I write like I'm transcribing a thought experiment in progress. I freeze in amber some rumination, then reflect on its implications. Reflection spawns the next item to be resined or the dishes are done, man.
Y'all know how writing something down is meant to help you recall it? This, presumably, is one of the benefits of note taking. Well, I'm pretty sure the memory imprint is all I rely upon; 'cause, I'm pretty sure I'm not even trying to make this shit legible.
