me running this blog with a pure and innocent heart
Sometimes I think about those high res Jupiter pics and then think about Van Gogh and get emotional because it’s like this one, lonely man that didn’t experience an ounce of fame or recognition in his life time had the image of the universe in his head and he didn’t know it.

it’s funny because yes, you CAN disable right click save, but it takes like an extra two seconds to get around it because of how images are displayed on websites. (technically you could also just screenshot but this gets you a real jpg)
for example, instagram has disabled right click save. here I am trying to save a picture of this girl with a pumpkin sweater, but I am thwarted by the lack of right click save!
to get around it, right click and go to “inspect” or “inspect element” (it’s called different things depending on what computer you’re using)
shimmy around the webpage code until you find the “src” bit. It will helpfully tell you when you’ve found it because the image, and only the image, will light up as if you selected it.
that source is the link to where the image is hosted on the website. click the link.
find the actual hosted image. right click on that.
check and mate.
reblogging this version so people can piss off the NFT bros better
In Firefox you can do this
Go to Page Info from the Tools menu or hit Ctrl+I (you can also make your browser UI nebula-coloured in Firefox if you want)
Then click onto the Media tab and scroll down until you find the image. I recommend using the down arrow key instead of trying to guess from the filenames.

[ID: A digital drawing of the front of a bakery, a small dragon sits outside on the front steps staring up into the window. Outside it’s dark and raining, the light from the bakery is warm orange, the window full of shelves of bread. The bakery is called “Indigo’s”, and on the window reads “bakery cafe”. /End ID]
[Image description: The same dragon now lays on a pile of bread with some chunks torn out of them, fast asleep in the backroom of the bakery, near some sort of fire with the racks of different kinds of bread all around the storage area. They are safe and full. Description on post reads, “He got his bread.” End ID]

your future self loves you. they dream of hugging you and wiping your tears away. they wish they could tell you stories of your future, just to see your smile and relief. they wish they could squish your cheeks and tell you how lovable you are. they miss you. they listen to playlists you made just to experience it again. they wrote you a long love letter too, but you will never read it. you are so loved.
so i just learned that after disney+ debuted disney shut down a huge chunk of its tv channels around the world such as disney channel and disney XD including the ones in south korea, so for old times’ sake i just spent a good hour or so watching channel shutdown compilations and 90% of these worldwide disney channels just…. got absolutely no sendoff whatsoever. many of them got their plug pulled right in the middle of a show without even waiting for the episode to finish airing and there was no ending jingle or even a voiced-over announcement, only a sudden cut to a soulless monotone blank screen with “this channel is no longer available.” like the stuff of childhood nightmares
you’d think a company with such a family-friendly image would take the time to at least explain briefly to its very young audience that all their fave shows will be moving to another service or something, hell, at least do it for advertisements’ sake so that kids can pester their parents into buying disney+, but disney does not care about you and it does not care about your children and it will absolutely snatch the last shred of comfort from a kid’s hands if it means they don’t have to spend an extra $400 recording an ending announcement in different languages
and honestly i am just sitting here with my heart in my throat like. none of our current art is truly permanent, is it. we like to think that we have better documentation and archiving technology than generations past but all it really takes is for one megacompany to slap some copyright tape over its comic book villain safe and then toss that safe in the ocean for all it’s worth. youtube could potentially choose to do the same and simply wipe its entire site clean overnight. adobe decided to throw flash in the garbage and decades worth of internet content just…. disappeared from reach. i am begging every digital creator out there to backup your content to as many outlets as you possibly can. use different cloud services that aren’t owned by one company. use physical usb drives and hard drives. if programs you used to open your work become obsolete at least document what it was so it can be passed on and remembered by people who want to. jesus christ i need a drink
Is a language dead if it has more than *squints* half a million daily speakers despite centuries of imperialism?
Sometimes you wonder if they can function outside their imaginary world
the english want the welsh language to die so people dont notice that 80% of ‘english mythology’ has been lifted wholecloth from wales, had the serial number filed off and covered with a union jack
Cymru am byth 🏴 ❤️
It’s a beautiful language, like Gaelic, Scottish and Irish. All languages are important for our history, it teaches us who we are, and who we were, it’s our true indigenous tongue.
Welsh was never a “dead language” because it was too strong for it’s enemies to kill.
the welsh government wants to force everyone to learn welsh? man that sure sounds totalitarian, imagine if the english government forced everyone to learn english smh smh
A form of genocide by trying to kill a language the English and American powers that be have been attempting on indigenous cultures for centuries. Protect, Welsh, Irish, Native American languages, Austrailian Aborigine, and all the many others not coming immediately to mind.
This is happening in France as well. French is the only official language in France and for many years, children weren’t allowed to speak other languages in school. This is why many of the French regional languages, such as Breton and Franco-Provençal, are endangered.
Most endangered languages aren’t endangered because their speakers stopped caring, they’re endangered because they were forcibly repressed
been thinkin about this lately and i think i want a small life. not a BAD life n not an ISOLATED life n not a CLOSED life but just. small. with defined boundaries. i want a job that will sustain me that doesn’t require exhaustion to survive. i want a place to live that’s big enough for me to choose every part of it; just enough shelf for mugs i love, just enough cabinet for a neat set of paints, just enough closet for clothes i actually like wearing not just ones i tolerate. i want to do little routines and make small batches of things and be a regular somewhere. i just want to have something contained and clear that’s mine, mine, mine
Honestly the queue and schedule post options on Tumblr are extremely underrated. No other major social networking site has the ability to do that with the same ease as Tumblr does, and we’ve had them for like a decade now. They’re fantastic features and Tumblr doesn’t get enough credit for having them.
The thing you’ve gotta understand about the drive to get people back in the office is that it isn’t just about cruelty, or bosses being control freaks (though that’s certainly part of it); it’s also about the fact that the greater part of the managerial class don’t actually do anything.
Now, don’t get me wrong, management in the sense of having someone whose specific job it is to keep track of what’s going on, facilitate communication, and generally insulate the people doing the actual work from administrative distractions is an essential part of any large undertaking, but most so-called managers don’t actually do any of that – they foist it on subordinates instead. In a best-case scenario, that means an administrative assistant is doing all the real work; more typically, some poor sucker on the production floor is effectively doing two jobs, their manager’s and their own.
The upshot is that there’s a whole class of middle managers who are terrified that if people keep working from home for much longer, the company brass are going to realise that they can save a ton of money by optimising those middle mangers right out of the equation. It’s a fair question whether this would actually happen, mind you, as keeping those those do-nothing managerial positions around has other benefits (e.g., nepotism, money laundering, the ability to dangle said positions over people’s heads as rewards, etc.), but that’s the fear that’s in play.
