@rose thank you for the excuse to post this bison i saw in yellowstone

i started the book Dark Ecology by Timothy Morton. i'm not sure what i think about it yet. it's been wrong in frustratingly obvious, glaring ways a couple times, but i think it says something important to a particular kind of "rationalist" maybe... i gotta get further in it and mull it over still.

i rewatched Pig tonight. it was maybe my 4th or 5th watch and it still makes me cry. it's slow, and it likes to sit in its own emotions, but i think what it has to say about Names, Families, and Connections is unlike most stories, and worth hearing out.

@roundtit it was hard to accept this morning that what my dog did was, in fact, pretty cute.

@pie @FinalOverdrive studies tend to show that when people feel like they're stealing from a person it feels different than when you're stealing from a faceless corporation. but, politically i agree that in class war, businesses are businesses and they are predicated on exploitation and the violent upholding of their power, and as such, the non-propertied can't really treat them differently.

Marx: "The less you eat, drink and read books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorize, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save—the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor dust will devour—your capital. The less you are, the more you have; the less you express your own life, the greater is your alienated life—the greater is the store of your estranged being."

From the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844

i can't believe i'm awake right now. i woke up to our dog whining at me and standing over me. naturally i assumed she wanted me to let her outside or something so i got out of bed.

she didn't leave the room with me, instead she just stole my warm spot.

here are the studies that were shared with me through my research hub on the topic of shoplifting. i'm still looking for more though!
