On First Clicking Through To Bezos' WaPo

Some say Democracy dies in Darkness
Some say in a Fire

From what I've seen of Online Ire
I hold with those who Favour Fire

Yet for Destruction Paywall's nice
And would Suffice

For those who are wondering why the above Mastodon posts contain HTML (after what I said in my Mastodon comment on the Oct 1 episode Mastodon post), my changes to the Javascript didn't save in IFTTT.

I clicked "Update" to close the Javascript editor within the IFTTT Applet, but then I didn't click "Save" on the IFTTT Applet itself.

When I publish Thursday's episode, we'll see if the HTML goes away this time.

A new episode of the I narrate, UNSONG. "Chapter 63: My Wrath Burns To The Top Of Heaven" <p>"Blue sky and fair winds, like every day in the eye of a hurricane. Multicolored symbols circled and sparkled round. Invisible celestial machinery kept up its steady pulse."</p> <p>This is a serialized story narrated by Matt Arnold with the permission of the author, Scott Alexander.

I use If This Then That (IFTTT) to automatically post here when I post an entry to my podcast. IFTTT has a great new feature that lets me give it a script to change the content before posting it; this lets me extract much more of the actual post so I can fit as much as possible into 500 characters.

I see now that it doesn't strip out the HTML tags. That's why it looks like what you see here. I have now fixed it; we'll see what happens on Thursday when the next episode releases!

So I finally settled for the Kowaitober prompt list from lois.goody on Instagram and the first prompt is "band-aid".

I'm trying to use my old ink nibs more because I mostly use pens nowadays and want to get better at lining with nibs.

(I am using the Inktober tag because I am using ink for my promts, but am not following the official Inktober list.)

The young goldfish from umbrella academy goes mushroom-picking.
