• Stockhausen vs. Zorn

    I thought this would be a matchup of dissonance, but it’s not feeling this way at all. It feels like classical versus jazz/rock, and it’s difficult to compare. https://brackethq.com/b/82sib/ More on this later, when I figure out which is going to win this. Zorn has the edge. This setup was just a bad idea. I…

  • Study Page for Feasibility and Strategy

    I went down a rabbit hole after I needed to learn about feasibility; so this is a self-education page about that, organizing, and strategy. Since I don’t have expertise in this, I’m just listing some things I’ve found, or recalled. I’m including business and community and political organizing resources. If you aren’t up for reading,…

  • Racial Capitalism or Capitalism Creating Racism

    I asked Bing Chat to tell me which was more popular today, “racial capitalism”, that capitalism is inherently racist, or that capitalism creates racism, to divide the working class. I don’t know enough about the variations in ideas by the listed writers, so I cannot evaluate if this article is accurate. Here’s what the AI…

  • Comparing “Uncle Tom” and the “Model Minority” Stereotype

  • Turn out for #JusticeForRoques May 1

    It’s one day after the hearing, and I’m still mad. The arraignment is on May 1. Show up. The organization I’m with, PANA, is preparing a statement, but I’ll share my online links below. Before that, I will share several videos from my stories. They had similarities: working class people of color suffering violence. All…

  • ChatGPT: Discovers a “Memory Hole” or makes up sources

    This was weird. I asked ChatGPT to do this: compare the reddit groups r/asianamerican to r/aznidentity It did, and wrote a few paragraphs. Then I asked it: what are your sources for the last answer? and got this: What the hell were those headlines about?! I just found out about these porn subs this past…
