My first exposure to WFMU was actually during the marathon in 2019...the obvious passion of all the djs for their shows and the station in that time was part of what got me hooked. I've been a swag for lifer ever since!

And this show is one of my faves! Mark is awesome!

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Handy Haversack:

Techtonic is an absolute good in the world. It's shocking how much resistance I find just talking about the things that Mark delves deeply into for us. Imagine if this were some sort of podcast looking for a home. Never happen. No ad-driveb hosting platform would touch it. But we get it every week for free. Free!

I am *happy* to send in what I can so that Techtonic can keep going out over the airwaves. I value it more than I even know how to say. Same for all of WFMU, but Techtonic feels like a secret defender, always in my corner, telling me that it's OK to stay angry, to stay skeptical, to keep insisting there are other ways.

Thank you, Mark. Thank you, WFMU.

This show is invaluable. Pledge! This show is also not a podcast. Pledge!
  6:24pm P-90:

The sharing and posting and checking for likes produces a little rush of dopamine in your nervous system. Which reinforces the behavior in a loop. Yes, that’s a kind of addiction.
  6:25pm J Boogie:

Commenting here is different. It’s more of a conversation
  6:25pm J Boogie:

  Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Erin in TO:

@P-90 it's the same mechanism they get you with in video games, where you get that little rush every time you check for loot, and that's definitely additive

I read a recent quote from guitarist Bill McKay who said his landlord knocks off $25 from his rent whenever he shoveled the walk. He has made more money shoveling snow than from plays on Spotify.
  6:30pm J Boogie:

I’m starting to shoot 35mm photography again and for a second remembered what Instagram (pre Zuck) was all about (pre algorithm) in the first place. It bummed me out. Something that I’d otherwise use to share my work with friends... I’ll just have to build my own website I guess

  6:31pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Mark and Sheila. Perhaps you've covered this before, but.... your thoughts on Bandcamp?
  6:31pm J Boogie:

NFTs are pretty fascinating
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm ultradamno:

The guy from Ripple was on Axios yesterday. He was very intent on using the phrase "crypto industry" as much as he could, which seemed like a concerted effort to make it seem tangible. I don't know a lot about NFTs, but they seem like another way to get you to spend money on things you never really own.
  6:31pm J Boogie:

Hype bubble right now though. I’m not buying
  6:31pm Martinibomb:

@scott I've had work stolen and put on bags I've had other artists steal my style it's all brutal

  6:35pm J Boogie:

Martinibomb if I had licensing fees for every time some asshole stole something from me on Instagram, and profited, I’d be rich. It happens so much. Happened to me twice by artists with over 100k followers. The only way to fight back is to not participate in that grifting circle. This is also why I found the NFT thing to be so interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Scott67:

That's shitty MB! I wonder what someone would make of my Art?
I don't have "friends" on Fakebook that I don't, or wouldn't have in life. So hope they wouldn't plagiarize me. Don't think they'd wanna claim my stuff as there own anyway. 😉
  6:37pm J Boogie:

The wildest was when some overhyped gen z artist from Brooklyn literally made a painting of one of my photographs nd sold it for more than I probably make in a year
  Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Erin in TO:

Yaaaay! Thanks Mark, I'm excited for a new book endorsed by you <3

I think more & more people are getting wise to what social media is like & what it does to them - & what the profit motivations really are... I 'll be interested to see what the new Admin in D.C. does about the tech monopolies - & where we are after a few years... The pandemic of course intersects this massively - isolating everyone & profiting the tech titans - *massively* - & if we get past covid I'll be interested to see what Biden has time for... & mid-term elections - &tc.

At the risk of sounding self-righteous, a huge reason for not engaging digitally while I'm at home is to set a good example for my young kids. I'm sure it's a losing battle but I want them to know that the world exists outside of the phone, not on it.

Lynette Yiodem- Boakye
She copied a photo of a dance I had made in agreement with the choreographer and dancers; she made my photo into a painting, Everything inc the edge of the frame- hands toward edge, exact same clothing, lighting and hair bounce. She did change the skin tone and used the medium of paint. The choreographer felt violated too. We sought legal advice and did not have the $ to pursue. Though there was a chance we would have won, I'm sort of known in this small scene.
LYB "found it on the internet" so "It's mine" LY-B always says she makes paintings from her imagination" on her gallery site and in interview's in NYT et al .
I and choreographer understand art stuff- about homage, appropriation , collaboration etc. This outright stealing with the artist yakking about her imagination was/is, can u tell? infuriating.
