approaches to style: the 4 types of writing styles, and examples of authors in each category.
from Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer — which i recommend! it’s one of the best books about speculative/genre writing i’ve ever read.

Beyond the algorithm: Omari Jazz's Dream Child
I've been very blessed to have gotten some wonderful recommendations from very thoughtful curators!
Came across this album on Bandcamp, off the music writer/critic Hua Hsu's feed.
Tumblr media
Omari Jazz is an Oregon based music producer - I'd say their music is characterised by beautiful loop based, MPC centred, and live instrumentations.
How's it sound?
For fans of early Flying Lotus - and it's really melodic! If you're looking for something astral-facing and cosmic and spacey and a bit new age, yet warm - with lots of percussions and harps and strings - and really beautiful synth work.
What mood?
Good for relaxing! Lazy afternoons, early and unrushed mornings - any time really. A great alternative to lo-fi hip hop beats to study to.
You can check out my entire bandcamp collection here - it's not a perfect way to buy music because we are still relying on a tech company, but it's better than streaming! plus you own copies of the music!

everyone's all for disabled rights & anti-capitalism until your co-worker does the dishes slowly, or gets confused when given directions, or needs to be trained on how to do something that you think is fairly simple, or this or that or whatever lack of ability they have that makes you start to devalue them as a person and call them "useless" for not being a perfect cog in the capitalist machine
like sorry my existing makes your job harder but maybe direct your anger & aggression upwards instead of stamping down vulnerable groups who are just trying to survive and have gone their whole life being abused and screamed at for not being "good enough" or for being Inconvenient or a Burden

Imagine when a lukewarm take is so wrong that the author rightfully, publicly drags it....

Giant green pill millipede, Zoosphaerium neptunus, Sphaerotheriida
Found only in Madagascar, this species is the largest pill millipede in the world, sometimes reaching almost 4 inches in length. Although superficially resembling pill bug isopods (aka roly polies), they are not related.

kinda miss social media in 2012 where the concept of an influencer didn’t exist and everyone was using instagram’s premade filters and posting pictures of random shit like a handful of skittles or an overexposed sunset those were the days
