Ooh, maybe not fabric...ink stains. Going to have to do some experimenting.

update: yes. my plans include 1) a nap 2) cotton candy

hmm, what kind of fabric? black? red? printed with 1920s white people? different shades to represent when the covenant was added (similar to the animation on the web site mappingprejudice.org/)? I love thinking about stuff like this

This artist has cut out the fabric to represent foreclosures and then patched the squares from the back...I think I will place fabric on top of the quilt to represent how the racial covenants block homeownership in that neighborhood.

I think I just found another textile project ... these, but for Hennepin County racial covenants. (The idea was originally proposed by Mapping Prejudice on Facebook.) kathrynclark.com/foreclosure-q

OMG I took 15 minutes at the end of my work day to quickly take care of the little things I usually just ignore until they become overwhelming and it was amazing! Who could have predicted

I thought my company was paying me to design instructional materials, but it turns out my primary function is to install software updates on my laptop and watch it reboot. My bad.

"So, what's the look you're going for?"
"I dunno. How about...rock formation."

@solarpunkagorism the first rule of economics is that there's not enough for everyone because it's mine and you can't touch it

OK real question. What is the most affordable US city where you can live without a car (get places you need to go on reliable transit, using decent bike infrastructure, or fairly hassle-free walking)

summer may be hot but at least there isn't 30 inches of, like, sand everywhere making everything 1000x harder

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, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. 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.
