Hey y'all: We need some more toots around here on the local TL is just gonna be me doing quote threads of Italo Calvino

Thus, when traveling in the territory of Ersilia, you come upon the ruins of the abandoned cities, without the walls which do not last, without the bones of the dead which the wind rolls away: spiderwebs of intricate relationships seeking a form.

They rebuild Ersilia elsewhere. They weave a similar pattern of strings which they would like to be more complex and at the same time more regular than the other. Then they abandon it and take themselves and their houses still farther away.

From a mountainside, camping with their household goods, Ersilia’s refugees look at the labyrinth of taut strings and poles that rise in the plain. That is the city of Ersilia still, and they are nothing.

In Ersilia, to establish the relationships that sustain the city’s life, the inhabitants stretch strings from the corners of the houses, white or black or gray or black-and-white according to whether they mark a relationship of blood, of trade, authority, agency. When the strings become so numerous that you can no longer pass among them, the inhabitants leave: the houses are dismantled; only the strings and their supports remain.

This city which cannot be expunged from the mind is like an armature, a honeycomb in whose cells each of us can place the things he wants to remember

I don't think anyone besides me uses the web masto interface, but I did some CSS stuff for the main layout. Let me know if you dig it.

Sometimes when I get overwhelmed, I imagine myself suspended in water but with light shining down from the surface. I thought it might mean I should do one of those float tanks, but I'm probably just disassociating. Anyways, time to read Invisible Cities again.

Very excited to find a tool for mass tweet deletion. It was really past due since my Timehop liked to continually shame and embarrass me

The best part of going to the gym so early is seeing the same gd infomercials over and over. I could sell you an air fryer

Supposedly, Animal Crossing Switch is set to come out April 29 and that is so much sooner than I thought and I am totally ready to lose my shit.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm super pumped for yet another billionaire dickhead to spend an election cycle telling us what we can't afford as a country.

I had a dream last night that I was in a plane crash. I realized it was going down, and then felt the lurch of the crash and then "woke up" OK, still in the dream. Someone told me that our luggage was scattered around and I got super pissed when my switch wasn't in my backpack because that meant I lost my Diablo III progress. After surviving a plane crash. I woke up to my precious switch securely next to the bed.
