Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

Finally getting back into taking photos, so I made a pixelfed account to celebrate!

I tend to think that a billionaire is automatically not a good person. A good person would say "hmm. I'm making money really fast, and I don't need more than, let's say $10 million... what can I do to benefit the planet that's given me this bounty?". And then they'd change their business model to do that thing. I cannot see a billionaire as admirable or good.

When I think about art, I think about my friend the cello teacher. She said something like, "In a way, I want musical instruction to go back to its original purpose. That is, we learn to play music because if we don't, there is no music." We should view art the same way. We make art so that there is art in the world. We should never say, "but it's been done." or, "I can just buy any of the mass produced art" We should think, "If I don't make this, there won't be anything."
