🌑 Lightplay 018 – The Old, Weird Internet (Never Died)
In this episode of Lightplay, host Jasper Nighthawk presents the essay, "The Old Weird Internet (Never Died)," which addresses the question, Can a retro-looking blog platform help us express our feelings? Then the writer Lisa Locascio Nighthawk recommends Vladimir by Julia May Jonas (28:49 ). Then Jasper shares three motes: Get Out There, So Long Kinga Browser, and 7x7 Reading (30:59 ). The show finishes with a Land Reminder (33:32 ) and a Benediction (35:03 ).
The post is available online, with pictures and a written recipe, in the Lightplay archive.
You can read my essay “Music and Power” in that archive as well.
Here are links to multiverse.plus, my page there, and my friend’s cool trippy post. You can also visit kickscondor.com and weiwei.place, the websites of the multiverse’s founders. Here is the evasive joking on a Hacker News thread and the cursed archive of Kicks Condors’ site. Here’s the link to the site that’s sort of like StumbleUpon.
If you’re interested in the 7x7 event at Beyond Baroque, here’s the event listing. I invite you also to read my collaboration with the artist Corinne Chaix and to watch the recording of the panel discussion I participated in at Beyond Baroque.
