…academics, acquaintances, activists, actors…

Looking through some of my old twitter threads and having been struck by a whim, I think I shall turn one of them into a blog post to enjoy it all over again.

Here’s one from the beginning of 2017 when I was getting more into Twitter and revelling in the variety (I like mixed herbs) of the people I found there, and was inspired to alliteration (always a sign of stimulation) in the form of this celebratory ode. It appears that I never quite finished it because the last few letters of the alphabet eluded me. Perhaps rolling it out again will breath new life into it.

As a suggestion, feel free to read this in a hollow, metallic, rhythmic chant with a southern US twang, like a solemn call to arms.

Perhaps you will see yourself represented in the list.

The muse strikes – I’m going to do a thread: alliteratively celebrating the weird beautiful diversity of the humans I follow on Twitter.

weather-dependent witterings

my phone started including German words in its autocorrect all of a sudden one day.

it turned my sloppy ‘witterings’ into ‘witterungsbedingt’.

imagine my mild shock when it appeared fully formed before me, unbeckoned, seeming to have flown forth from my frivolously flittering thumb!


self-styled character portraits

funny…just saw that in 2014, I’d said that the reason I didn’t attempt a lot of self-portraits was because I was the one person that I was least in a position to take a photo of. (in just a small note about a selfie.) now, the (improvement and fine-tuning of the) selfie camera on phones has not only made this no longer the case, but it’s almost made the opposite true – at least concerning head and shoulders portraits. we may now be our own most accessible subjects.

but I don’t need to use any stupid manga apps because I already have freakishly neotenous photographic tendencies and an unnatural relationship with light. (at Keflavik International Airport)


who needs to spend money on accessories now that you can just use #msqrdapp?
so I decided to #giveitatry and then added a bit of my usual #prismaapp magic to polish it up. #rebeccatun | #amianelfnow? #digitalselfstyling #artyfartyselfie #digitalselfportrait #prismaappart #prismaappfilters #driventoabstraction #redwhiteandblack #msqrdfilters #msqrdappfun #cartoonself #msqrdthenprisma #liferemixed (at Reykjavík, Iceland)


found this lovely spot for a picnic on the way up to Öxarárfoss in the region of Thingy to enjoy some more bitchslappingly cold waterfall sprayage in the last minutes of today’s winter light.
