I spent £44 on a radio the other week and it's already broken down. I kind of expected better from Sony.
The radio still plays, but the screen has stopped showing any information, so you have to "guess" what radio station you're tuned into.
I need a new radio, because I can't sit here working in silence all day, but I can't really afford another £44 at this point in my life.
Look at these beautiful visualisations of (US) radio stations and their service areas - more interesting than it sounds:
Sultans of Ping F.C. - Where's Me Jumper
"My brother knows Karl Marx
He met him eating mushrooms in the people's park
He said, "What do you think about my manifesto?"
"I like your manifesto, put it to the test-o"
Took it straight down to meet the anarchist party
I met a groovy guy, he was arty-farty
He said, "I know a little Latin: anicus anicae"
Said, "I don't know what it means," he said, "Neither do I"
Wait, what? This was the only section worth reading in the bloody Guardian.
There's a house near my house with an alarm that goes off all. the. time.
If you want to start robbing houses, surely that's the one you'd start with.
Think about it, it's the perfect crime. You break in, the alarm goes off, no one goes "hey, that house alarm is going off, must investigate!". They just go "that bloody alarm", close the window and go back to sleep. 🚨
A few times this week, I've got up, looked in the mirror to shave and for a split-second I've seen a woman looking back at me. It doesn't last, but it's a really interesting thing.
I wonder if it's down to face shape changes on HRT, or just psychological. Either way, it's fun! Has anyone else come across it in early transition?
Instead of fucking off to - *checks notes* - Canada why don't we stay here and try and make the country into a better place to live for everyone?
Honestly, the chorus of "right, I'm off!" every time there's a negative political development is one of the worst things about our recent period of non-stop negative political developments.
Those of us who don't have the means to emigrate are... what, stuck while you bugger off to Canada/NZ/etc?
Early 30s (she says hopefully). Trans. Urban Planning student. I've usually got the radio on. Sometimes I even like what I hear.
