can i say, i get how this picture could seem emo, but take a step back and consider the ironic and hilarious oddity of going to a place (let's call it, perhaps, a zooseum) to observe a tv which, it turns out... will turn around and start watching you right back. That's what I find v delightful here.

"Mummy! Let's go to the museum, I want to see the telly-vision!"

Who watches the watcher, Alan Moore, eh?

I have discovered an alternate reality, or a future one.

I have spent the last few days documenting it.

I may continue; for how long, I'm not sure. But I haven't drawn a dude with a boombox head yet and I'm pretty sure I finna do that one for sure.

Hubski, I will keep you posted as I report back from this superserious mission. Send me fancy glass chemistry tubes that do extra cool stuff, please. Cathode rays are premium. I must blend in with my environs.

actually does anyone know anything about like digital media like say you drew some stuff and then wanted to put it into a program and fix it and further improve.

first of all is there a "best" way to get those paper images digitized? like is it really byzantine to take photos of drawings and then send them to your laptop or is that going to be just as good as scanning images?

second i really hate both free photo editing apps i tried today, one didn't have basic capabilities and the other one for some reason is refusing to talk to my photos and vice versa

basically i have no idea what i'm doingggg

does anyone on hubski draw using a tablet? i've got a few friends who do and i'm kind of curious but know nothing about how any of that ish works at all

So I mean, then what's the appropriate radius from an event within which the local news should be allowed to report on it? 25 miles, 50 miles, what? We could limit such news to the boundaries of the school district which is impacted?

Imagine being related to a child who goes to a school at which there was a school shooting and having absolutely no idea about it.

Imagine hearing about school shootings by quality-degraded word-of-mouth instead of on live broadcasts straight from the source or through reading vetted, accurate, news/journalism articles which meet a certain accepted (and removed) standard.

Refusing to run news about such events has easy parallels to outlawing abortion: you're not going to make it stop happening, you're just going to make people have to go about it in messier, more complicated, less convenient, less accurate ways.

A child whose reaction to hearing about another child's suicide is to attempt suicide is a child who needs help, not a child who would be perfectly fine if they hadn't heard about the other one. I assure you the feelings they have which make them think suicide might be a good choice do not suddenly pop up in their skull in response to hearing about someone else who committed it.

i think the more we reinforce that concept the better for so many reasons

(I am working through Thanks for the Feedback, a book about exactly what it sounds like. The book focuses most on how to receive feedback well (or, at least, better); the verbiage about being a receiver, and working with a giver, refers to the two roles in a given feedback scenario.)

"As receivers, we shouldn't use our views to dismiss the giver's views, but neither should we discard our own. Working to first understand their views doesn't mean we pretend we don't have life experiences or opinions. Instead, we need to understand their views even as we're aware of our own. And that's almost impossible to do unless we make a key shift -- away from that's wrong and towards tell me more: Let's figure out why we see this differently."

Hate that #guns.lil is a repeated tag, but I don’t hate it cuz of the lil part
