    Oh now hell the fuck yeah. The Voynich Manuscript has been one of those "unsolved mysteries" that always interested me the most, this is so exciting.

    I wonder if there's going to be any attempt by linguists to sort of catalogue the language in here and release a small grammar/dictionary based on what they find. I've got a penchant for dead languages and would adore the chance to pick something like this up.

    Holy shit I might actually cry. That’s the nicest thing that anyone’s ever said to me hahaha.

    I honestly don’t even know how to reply.

    Thank you! I’m really glad you liked the piece. :) The sun was out and the sky was blue today, so I guess I had to write some drain-y shit to counteract all that positivity hahaha.

    I’ve got another post in the works; small collection of a few small related pieces. Might save it for tomorrow though.

    I’m really prone to rambling innit.

    ANYWAY.

    Thank you! I haven’t actually started making any music yet; more so just keeping the lyric-writing side of me fresh whilst I teach myself piano and save up for a guitar. Once I do finally lay my first track down I’ll be sure to post it here.

    Again, I’m glad you liked it. :) Thanks for taking the time to read it!

    Ehh. “Background” we’ll call it.

    I’ve been writing poetry (predominantly in form of lyrics) off and on for the better part of the last decade. (I only tend to write whenever I’m going through darker times.)

    In full honesty I don’t remember whether I’ve written... how to call it, “real” poetry before. But I’ve definitely read a bit before and tend to otherwise surround myself with the arts.

    So, in short, that was a long winded way of saying “I’d consider myself a writer, but I don’t know whether this would be considered my first foyer* in to poetry or not.”

    * this is so beyond not the right word, I’m just not sure what the word is. It’s a French loanword I believe, synonymous with “venture”.

    You know they’ve got poetry on Spotify? That’s some cool shit. Ended up following John Cooper Clarke into a rabbit hole of other British poets.

    Decided to bite and try writing a bit of poetry for poetry’s sake.

    Anyway. ‘Ere go. “June.”

    I thought your voice was music

    And your beauty - work of art.

    I found your jokes amusing,

    Ponygirl, a golden heart.

    Your company, a journey

    Which I never could depart

    I really felt I loved you,

    Well, I did once, at the start.

    .

    See, music can be different

    Some songs good, and others crap.

    Some begin melodically,

    Then get crashing in a snap.

    Starting subtle violins,

    Then it blares with metal scrap

    They lure you malevolent

    Some music is a trap.

    .

    Some artists Donatello,

    Others Jackson Pollock.

    Some art goes well with wine,

    Some turns you alcoholic.

    Some is deep and intricate,

    Some is purely bollocks

    Can’t call this a masterpiece

    I’m not sure what to call it.

    .

    Thought your lips were pure cuisine

    And your beauty - work of art.

    I never thought the kitchen

    Would have mold and rot at heart.

    The oven sent asunder

    All the counters ripped apart

    You’re a diner with one dish,

    And it’s a dry and sour tart.

    Howdy folks.

    Got in a Tildes-y mood this morning. Started writing a couple posts to different ~ and then closed the tab on all of them, so I figured I'd just come share something easy instead.

    Fun little piece by the punk poet himself.

    Makes me want to consider writing more poetry for poetry's sake; angling things less towards music.

    Any similar pieces you lot would point me towards?

    Cheers.

    It's got all the passive elements of an idle clicker with phenomenal interactivity and story-telling as well. Probably the best app I've ever downloaded (seconded only by the prequel to the game, The Ensign.)

    HELLO TILDES USERS. IT IS I, FELLOW HUMAN, BISHOP.

    As you may have read in an earlier post of mine (ok probably not it was a one-off comment, not like I reinforced the thought anywhere.)

    I do indeed hold the belief that code can be, itself, art, in the right context.

    Or, rather, that code can be used for artistic purposes.

    I dunno.

    That's why I'm posting.

    What would you say is the most artistic or, at least, creatively designed website or mobile app that you've seen?

    I've got some creativity a-stewin' away in my head, and I need a new excuse to kill some time on frontend.

    So, fellow humans, hit me with your best shot duh-nuh-nuh-nuh fire away.

    What ya got?

    This is my favorite non-rap song from a rapper thus far. Easily one of the best songs I’ve heard come out of 2019 so far.

    This dude is dummy underground and deserves so much recognition. I recommend all of you check him out.

    “doll” x Shrimp

    Like honestly. There are very few people on the scene right now (in general) that I would want to make a song with. This dude is definitely at the higher echelons of my “ideal collab” list. Others being Brown Bird, Colter Wall, Fish Narc, Yawns, døves, Cody Jinks

    memories of,

    Semi unrelated, but for my fellow latino/latina users of Tildes, how do you feel about the whole "Latinx" thing?

    I'm hispanic by blood and American by culture; so I can understand (and appreciate!) the desire to want to have a gender neutral term of address for the latino people.

    That said, it was to my understanding that "latino" in and of itself was already the neutral term. This gets confused in the US because we're taught, essentially, that the suffix "-a" is reserved for feminine words, and "-o" for masculine.

    (Por ejemplo, "la biblioteca" (the library fem.) and "el tiempo" (the time masc.))

    However, from what I understand, there is a third "lesser" grammatical case in spanish for the neuter which usually follows the word "lo" and implies an unspecified "thing".

    For example, the phrase "Lo importante aqui..." translates to "The important thing here...", with this tentative "thing" being expressed in the neuter. Is this not the same case from which the word "latino" as a means of addressing the latin populous has root?

    If so; what's all the discussion about then? If not, do you feel that a gender-neutral term (a la "latinx") is an appropriate and gender-neutral way of addressing us all, or perhaps see it as an unintentional white-washing of the language?

    Alex French Guy Cooking. Incredibly creative show. Half cooking, half... DIY kitchen equipment processing? He's made his own Ramen mass production setup. He's made his own chocolate bar production system. He's making his own professional/authentic croissant production system. And he's the second sweetest dude on the planet. Definitely recommend.

    Gaz Oakley - dayum good (and hella aesthetically pleasing) vegan food stuffs.

    Simnett Nutrition - (The reigning sweetest dude on the planet.) All the way whole foods diet; (No processed foods. Just pure fruits, grains, oats, etc.) Mans is my vegan bodybuilding inspiration. And his relationship with his girlfriend is my life goal hahaha.

    Oof mate Chitown is my home.

    Not literally, I've only ever been twice. But out of all the places in the States I've been to, I've never felt more at home than when I was in Chicago.

    Dying to go back. If all goes according to plan this year (in terms of getting myself back on my feet and such) I'm planning to go back in the Winter. If anything, just to try Malnati's (only ever had Giordano's) and see what's fresh at the art institute hahaha

    I'm pretty new to this channel, but I'm quickly falling in love with it.

    For the uninitiated, here's a favorite of mine where Glen and Friends recreate the classic Coca-Cola recipe (sans coca of course.)

    I like how chill, informational, and lowkey these videos lend themselves to. Gonna have to give this channel a proper deep-dive and see what else I can find!
