hello fedi, i think you all will appreciate this "protocol" which i made
tbh i don't think i really care that much about the historical reality of what plague doctors actually thought they could cure, the figure from our contemporary viewpoint is what's interesting to me
the plague doctor as a creepy figure is fascinating. like, we're uncomfortable with the idea, like he's a figure of death, but he's not *killing* people. accepting the presence of this figure is accepting what's going to happen to you. he is a weird counterpart to the last rites a priest can offer. he's got leeches and nothing
on the one side, allows a lot of fun unreliable narrator stuff where maybe you don't understand what was going on in this family/village until you hear multiple people. on the other side, what are the literary possibilities of palliative care's acceptance of the inevitable?
@TeethTeethTeeth I enjoyed it! I'm a sucker for sets and costumes that really go for it, and it was a good laugh.
https://auralite.io/ <-- this could be cool, but it's taking VC money so it almost certainly won't be, but I'm still a little hype to see a new project using webmentions.
@antifuchs has he thrown it at me
@vy I read some of the other replies and I know that it's late but I would say that I think "cartridge" is best for something capturing an idea of modularity/interactivity, but "cassette" is better if it's a metaphor for data in storage
@lesbianhacker oh man this is too familiar =_=
update: when I wake up it feels for a bit like my teeth are in different places. I.. uh... that... doesn't seem ideal?
