morning ritual: cat sits on my stomach, purring

On account of insomnia, just got through that famous old book about a man who fashions a living, thinking monstrosity from unliving parts. My first go-round!

Arachnid film 

Oulipians, I got a short film of a tiny arachnid making fuzzy silk!

Warning: arachnid

Oh btw Oulipo: this spot has high quality no-cost, no-copyright digital books! Including our own _Dracula_ and _Moby Dick_. (No Whitman so far.)

Baby arachnids starting to hatch and spin silk orb traps right now!

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
