"In basically every case of entitlement within our culture, you’re going to see right-wing..."

“In basically every case of entitlement within our culture, you’re going to see right-wing reactionary behaviour. The thing that a conservative basically wants to conserve is their own entitlement. I’m seeing it time and again, in basically every topic I’m following lately. It seems like we should be pointing this out, because that entitlement is actually a very right-wing mindset, and it seems as though all our intellectual opponents on progressive topics — the slimepit, the MRAs, the 4chan and Reddit trolls, the antifeminists, the racists, the pure reactionaries — are overlapping to such a degree in these topics that it’s very helpful to identify the ways in which their Venn diagrams intersect. They are of a piece. They share more than just a xenophobia against inclusion and a hatred of progressivism generally. They share a reactionary mindset and streaks of right-wing authoritarianism. They look for heroes to worship, and they look for “heroes” on the other side (even when there are none such) to cut down.”

Two more weeks of this...

The "caller ID" no longer works on my office phone, so yesterday when I answered it, I heard "Hi !! This is [politician].  I know everybody hates robocalls, but..." [click]

I have grown not to just despise the politicians, but to hate the process.

Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

Extreme Winds Cause a Waterfall in England to Blow Upward

Extreme Winds Cause a Waterfall in England to Blow Upward wind weather waterfalls England

Hikers exploring England’s Derbyshire Peak District earlier this week stumbled onto a rare phenomenon caused by extreme winds. The River Downfall, a 30-meter (98 foot) waterfall was blown back almost vertically by a powerful updraft, making it seem as if the waterfall was simply flowing into nothing. Very cool.

Banksy just published photos of a new piece titled Girl with a Pierced Eardrum, a take on Vermeer’s famous Girl with a Pearl Earring, replacing the girl’s earring with an outdoor security alarm. The mural appears in his hometown of Bristol, UK where he last painted the Mobile Lovers piece earlier this year.

Ocean Atlas: A Massive Submerged Girl Carries the Weight of the Ocean

Installed earlier this month on the western coastline of New Providence in Nassau, Bahamas, “Ocean Atlas,” is the lastest underwater sculpture by artist Jason deCaires Taylor (previously), known for his pioneering effort to build submerged sculpture parks in oceans around the world. Taylor’s cement figures are constructed with a sustainable pH-neutral material that encourages the growth of coral and other marine wildlife, effectively forming an artificial reef that draws tourists away from diving hotspots in over-stressed areas.

Towering 18 feet tall and weighing in at more than 60 tons, Ocean Atlas is reportedly the largest sculpture ever deployed underwater. The artwork depicts a local Bahamian girl carrying the weight of the ocean above her in reference to the Ancient Greek myth of Atlas, the primordial Titan who held up the celestial spheres. The piece was commissioned by B.R.E.E.F (Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation), as part of an ongoing effort to build an underwater sculpture garden in honor of its founder, Sir Nicholas Nuttal. You can see a bit more over on Atlas Obscura and at the Creator’s Project, who are working on a documentary about the piece.

Very quickly, here's how a computer works at the simplest level.

D Latch

Want to see how computers store data? This next device is called a 'D-Latch'. It holds a binary bit. The top switch is the value to be stored, the bottom switch enables storage. Eight of these devices can be used to store a byte in memory.

The White Horse Paradox

It’s Day 4 of Philosophy Week!

I love Gongsun Long. So much so that when I [url=http://cowbirdsinlove.com/52]initially drew Gongsun Long[/url], I gave him basically the same character design that I use for myself today. When he returned to the comic around comic 1287, I cemented my theft of the short hair, brown skin, blue shirt look.

One of the things I love about the White Horse Paradox is that Gongsun Long is not trying to prove some crazy fact about reality. Rather, he is trying to prove out through reasonable statements something unreasonable, causing us to reflect on the nature of identity. We can say a white horse is a horse, but we can also say that a white horse is not a horse, in the sense that those are not identical concepts.

One of the things I love about this comic is that with regards to horse drawing I just kinda decided that my best attempted horse drawing isn’t much better than my worst attempted horse drawing, so I just decided to wing it.

I know if I ever need to be published in a serious horse illustration journal I’ll have to clean up my act, but for now, giving myself permission to draw bad horses has been incredibly therapeutic.

I hope you join me tomorrow, as we wrap up Philosophy Week and LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE.
