Toots with expiration dates lets me imagine them like Sappho’s fragments—beautiful partly because of the disappearances and the silences, the space allowed for time to have its quiet, modest, impactful say

From my inbox: a request for donations of space heaters from @moreneighbors and Inquilinxs Unidxs for tenants in a slumlord's building who've been without heat. Temperatures here have been in the teens and twenties.

They can be delivered in person, or if you aren't in Minneapolis, you can have them shipped from Target or any other online retailer that delivers, to 3715 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55407

The recommended model is: Honeywell 360 Surround Indoor Heater Black 1500W HHF360B

"The famous photo of Krist Novoselić lifting Kurt Cobain to cover a Grays Harbor sign will likely no longer be recreated.

"The WSDOT has adjusted the sign to change the 666 to 667 for safety reasons because of the amount of Nirvana fans visiting the site."

real talk:
climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say :bancars: , this is shorthand. but: don't be stressing about your personal issues, *like that guardian article says*, addressing climate change is about society-wide choices. and as a society, we have chosen cars to transport us. this is not about you, or your job, or your kids.
reliance on personal automobiles needs to stop at the society level. this is not about you.

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, and anonymous.
