Hello, artists!

Because of Reasons I am currently in a place where I would like to spend more money on commissioning art. That may mean art from you!

If the idea of ME paying YOU money for your art sounds appealing, please see this for more: alis.me/open-commissioning/

The new Tweetbot icon looks like a tiny, angry bird and if that isn’t Peak 2018 Twitter I don’t know what is.

There's probably more, but just listing this out is depressing me.

Seriously, though. Anyone who thinks Baby Boomers know jack shit about the responsible spending of money is deluding themselves...

(Spoiler alert: CPI is *literally* the official measure of how much "things get more expensive over time.")

How is it funded? Body corporate fees that increase by an arbitrary percent above CPI every year "just because things get more expensive over time."

You'll notice that none of this refers to funding things like general building and facilities maintenance (lifts, etc.). Because, yeah. This is all on top of that.

- $30,000 p.a. "gardening fund" (separate to all other gardening expenses)

- $10,000 p.a. to re-do all the grass in the courtyard on an annual basis (we live in a climate where grass... basically just dies)

- $10,000 to upgrade all the security cameras to high-definition, plus to install appropriate server architecture to store all the footage indefinitely (police have literally told us there were "very happy" with the quality/coverage of existing footage in the one theft incident, ref. above)

- $10,000 for speed bumps in the garage, to stop people "driving too fast" (there have been no injuries or incidents)

- $90,000 p.a. for a full-time "handyman" to... mow the law, I guess? This is on top of all the existing contractors who do the garden, take out the rubbish, maintain the lifts, etc.

- $90,000 for a second set of roller doors to the garage, ostensibly to keep non-residents out (there was one theft, once, resulting in the loss of one bicycle)

Like seriously. Some of the things our body corporate has or has wanted to spend money on include:

- $30,000 for a second, "more private" gazebo in the complex courtyard (there's already a large gazebo)

Anyone who whines about Millennials spending too much money on frivolous things has obviously never lived in an apartment block with a body corporate that is 99% Baby Boomers.

Accepting the garish colours of the official designs as a challenge.
