Added "Betty Boop: Minnie the Moocher" (1932), you can watch it here:
Disturbingly surreal, pre-code animated short featuring a rotoscoped Cab Calloway performing the title track.
(And yes, this is the same Cab Calloway who was in "The Blues Brothers")
NOTE: The audio is quite low on the source material, you may need to turn up the volume and/or use headphones.
@tootapp app looks neat, congratulations! does it have an iPad layout (as opposed to just showing the blown up iPhone interface)?

Why I don't trust StartPage Show more
StartPage.com has a media page here:
It has five videos:
-Katherine Albrecht, who thinks RFID tags are "the mark of the beast", who has written a horrifying book for kids about it, and whose Amazon listing says "Katherine helped to create StartPage ... and is on the team that developed StartMail"
-"The founders of StartPage meet Alex Jones"
...and that's it, no other videos.
TL/DR: Are SP nuts? 😟
"Paul Czege is known for the inspired and unconventional roleplaying and storytelling games he makes — games like My Life with Master, Bacchanal, and The Clay That Woke. In this workshop he'll talk through his creative process for making games, which is about finding inspiration and motivation that will sustain you, solving problems, and getting what you need from others to finish and publish a game. The workshop will be partly conversational, and he will take questions."
Say what you like about Apple, they're on the right side of this particular battle.
I read hacker news a lot at work because it is less obviously goofing around than reading reddit or facebook or whatever. More acceptable. It's got a lot of good content but also a lot of terrible people in the comments, the worst kind of techbros. A dose of Webshit Weekly (in glorious Comic Sans) helps take the edge off. http://n-gate.com/
Next the Red Foliot called for his Cat-bears, that stood before him foxy-red above but with black bellies, round furry faces, and innocent amber eyes, and soft great paws, and tails barred alternately with ruddy rings and creamy; and he said, "O Cat-bears, dance before us, since dearly we delight in your dancing."
They asked, "Lord, will you that we perform the Gigue?"
And he answered them, "The Gigue, and ye love me."
Reading through the guidelines, again, they sound nice, but I keep wondering whether any particular one is more protecting people from harassment, or protecting harassers from criticism.
I guess in the end it doesn't matter because they're just guidelines.
And they would, if they were followed, prevent a lot of open, explicit abuse and toxicity.
Just read the "gnu kindness guidelines." They sound nice, and I mean that in the least complimentary sense possible.
rms calls for respecting people's gender identity and pronouns, but using singular "they" is a bridge too far - the only hyperlink in the piece goes to a personal essay from rms about why singular "they" is unacceptable, and if you must use a gender neutral pronoun, use one from a 1974 science fiction novel rms happens to like.
"That’s the point that I got excited about what this form of writing could do as the fiction launches us into the rules and the rules launch us into more fiction."
That's from Jason D'Angelo's latest post in his series about reading The Clay That Woke. It's pretty great:
