I'm posting an #introduction for people to find me. (hashtags are searchable)
I'm a music #producer making electronic #music and a member of the #demoscene in the group Bedrock Bros. I also write watchfaces for the #pebble #smartwatch and recently #fitbit smartwatches. I'm generally interested in everything #audio #visual on a very nerdy level.
So I made a thing.
The green on this graph shows where chlorophyll b absorbs (the type mostly used by plants). You can see it catches light in two places. Near 450nm (the blue end of the spectrum) and around 650nm (in the red).
The two lines show the wavelengths emitted by LED lights. Blue is cool white and red is warm white. Both have a spike in emission around chlorophyll's blue absorption and broad emission over the red absorption.
In other words, this is why houseplants like LED lighting!
Is this the cutest ghost choir or what? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXF3VYYa5TI

one of the hardest things to learn as a depressed former Gifted Kid™ is that half-assed is better than nothing. take the 50%, 40%, even 20% job. scrubbing your face is better than not taking a shower at all. picking up your clothes is better than never cleaning. nibbIing on some bread is better than starving.
DO THINGS HALFWAY. NOW YOU'RE 100% BETTER OFF THAN YOU

One of my college professors used to say "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly." I didn't understand that for years because I didn't do anything poorly. I couldn't do anything poorly. I had to Do Everything Perfectly.
But brushing your teeth for 30 seconds is better than not brushing them at all when that 2 minutes seems exhausting. Doing ten minutes of yoga is better than 10 minutes of sitting when 30 minutes of cardio sounds impossible. Changing my clothes is good when a whole shower is impossible. Standing on the porch for a few minutes is worth it after being in the house for three straight days because l don't have the energy to go anywhere.
Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly... because doing it poorly is better than not doing it.

Please CW your posts fediverse, I've seen so many recently that need to be CW'd but weren't. These posts can be genuinely triggering, upsetting, angering or a reminder of horrible, difficult times or their current life and having at least sympathy for that isn't too difficult or if you don't at least try to understand. The CWs are there, please use them.
@KelloggsFrost it's on!
