Just updated the #madeina2 site for the first time in awhile. We gained @email@example.com and @TreetownT@twitter.com.
Responsive images aren't ready yet but I don't care right now, got them working and it's mostly config now thanks to @firstname.lastname@example.org's @email@example.com work so I'll just leave them for later. Also #edc is useful in an era when you don't leave the house, right? https://jshwlkr.info/posts/2020/edc-2020/

Also, a big thank you to Third Man Records and Jack White for The Pathetx - 1981 https://thirdmanrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-pathetx-1981
Just a reminder that this album exists and it's a crime that Death isn't a household name, especially in Detroit. https://deathfromdetroit.bandcamp.com/album/for-the-whole-world-to-see
https://algierstheband.bandcamp.com/track/the-underside-of-power #NowPlaying #MusicMonday Darlings of southern gothic post-punk, critically underrated. (And maybe incredibly relevant at the moment.)

#Fascism has happened in the US and can happen again. https://www.nybooks.com/daily/2020/06/22/american-fascism-it-has-happened-here/
