The "albiflora group" needs a new name - please help!
I've been saying since I first wrote about the variegated "albiflora" plants that this group would probably need a new name, and the time is now.
These cultivars are a group of unknown white-flowered hybrids, probably involving T. fluminensis, T. crassula, and other species in the Austrotradescantia subgenus. Most plants in this group have very compact and branching growth, and most are variegated with pink or white stripes.
I'm kind of sick of "oral history" style articles, but I gotta give props to Waypoint because this one of Tim Curry's Red Alert 3 performance is maybe the best edited article I've read all year https://www.vice.com/en/article/qjkv9q/an-oral-history-of-tim-currys-escape-to-the-one-place-uncorrupted-by-capitalism
I am running for the WMF Board: voting will open in a few hours and be open until Sept. 6.
Best way to support me is:
* Vote at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:SecurePoll/vote/Wikimedia_Foundation_Board_Elections_2022>
* Rank me first.
* Reach out to 5 other Wikimedians you know, and get them to vote as well.
Information about my candidacy and links to all relevant materials can be found at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Legoktm>.
sometimes living here is pretty good.
it was a pretty good cup of coffee, tho.
i have to assume other people's brains provide this service by default
this escalated until i just wedged the opening to the tunnel in the propped-open screen door so he could go back and forth at will and now he just sits in the tunnel entrance and periodically yells at me.
((these guys will also be selling out big venues for as long as they feel like going on the road, probably, so they're probably doing just fine sounding a little less like a hot jam session at a festival where everybody's high as a kite and more like something that might conceivably get played on Today's Hot Country Hits.))
(everybody's entitled to be whatever kind of band they want, mostly, and i don't begrudge people doing different stuff. it's just weird when you see talented people sort of shedding their distinctiveness and adrift in these zones of samey genre signifier. i can imagine the pressures that lead to it, but it seldom ends well.)
in favor of soup.
follow requests welcome! but please have a posting history i can check out, be someone i know, or just message me saying hi first.
