@LinuxLounge that's awesome. I have a t460(i think?) With ubuntu right now and it's okay, maybe i'll spring for the pinebook next?

@garfiald also stories become less contained over time which dilutes the intent behind the show. I feel like Breaking Bad did a really good job of keeping the core themes intact throughout the run.

@kelbot when my ideas get too large, i put 'rules' on them- rails that limit my direction more pointedly. I find it makes a more grounded and better outcome.

@jaye it's a framework for discussing 'signs' in other words, talking about how we talk about things. Here's a great intro to it:

@jaye yes! Subjective experience is absolutely a part of encountering image as language. Semiotics is a very useful framework for discussing that aspect

@jaye @FirstProgenitor if you make an image, using any tools or materials, you're likely engaging in the language of pictures! So, When does something become a painting could be as easy an answer as: when it's a picture made with paint. if you want to go deeper: when it references the qualities of paint, such as emphemeral qualities like movement, body, color, etc. A print of a painting is both a 'print' but also a 'painting'. You see? It's not a tight definition.

150 years ago today, on April 6, 1871, armed participants in the revolutionary Paris Commune seized the guillotine that was stored near the prison in Paris, smashed it into pieces, and burned it in a bonfire.


The guillotine is not a symbol of liberation.
