    First act premiered already. Second act isn't finished being written yet.

    The performances that already happened were an April performance of several scenes from the first act with just the three principal leads, then in June was the first act premiere with all of the leads and chorus. In 2016 will be the whole opera concert premiere with orchestra, and a recording made of that and sold on some record label, and then a staged premiere will presumably follow that.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    Yesterday I went to an 8-11pm event, so I anticipated being too tired to bike home after (also 20 min bus ride vs hour+ bike ride), so I biked in on my folding bike, bringing with me a packable-into-tinyness winter jacket, went to my event, and then waited for the bus with my folding bike wearing a winter coat. It just went so well. I have perfectly adapted to my environment.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    TIL Bootstrap compost. If you live in the Boston area and haven't heard of it - and especially if you have roommates - you should definitely check it out.

    We've discovered that 3/4 of the weight of our trash, and about 1/4 of the volume, was food scraps. So for $5 per roommate per month, we've cut our environmental impact down significantly, and by donating our portion of the finished compost we're doing some tangible good for other people, too.

    It was super easy to sign up, and all we have to do is leave the full bin on our porch and get a clean one in return.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    Interesting. We don't have enough food scraps to do it on a regular basis (we just freeze most of them and turn them into veggie stock every few months), though we do have a steady stream of yard clippings in the spring/summer. Maybe I should get less lazy and make my own composter.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Compost should be a municipal thing like trash and recycling. If anyone's in Somerville I think MetroPed still does compost pickup and I think their rates are similar plus you get to support bike people. There's Farmer Pirates around here (linking because the website is hilariously bad), but we're going to try to start our own because we don't have many scraps and make stock whenever we can."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    ryan t:Using a garbage disposal is the next best thing if you can't do composting

    So not true. What goes down the garbage disposal just taxes the water sanitation system even more because that stuff has to be filtered out and... sent to the dump anyway. A former prof of mine who is an expert in composting and waste management thinks that garbage disposals should be banned.

    I am curious to hear more about why your friend thinks that.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    In this class we gained a very solid appreciation for what it takes to turn grey and black water into something that can be put back in the ocean with minimal risk of fucking up the environment. Adding more solid waste that has to be treated into an already overtaxed and underfunded system is not a cool thing to do- especially when it's just going to the dump anyway. Your lazy ass could save the water department a lot of extra work by just putting it in the trash if you're not going to compost it. And don't give me this shit about turning that sludge into "biosolids" because I will fact rage on you about what a dangerous, dangerous scam that is. Come at me, bro.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    I haven't talked to him in great detail on this but my friend said that the bio sludge or whatever from the water system can be used for stuff. He works for something that organizes recycling and compost in NYC, and did his masters thesis on waste management. He's no slouch when it comes to this stuff (and I'm interested too) so if you have a good case against it let me know.

    The main argument against "biosolids" (put in quotes because it's the most bullshit astroturfed name in existence, sort of like calling cigarettes "breath sticks") is as follows:

    Everything that goes down the drain gets mixed up together.
    That stuff includes heavy metals (cadmium, lead, nickel, etc) that are extremely toxic in high enough concentrations.
    There is no effective way to remove these metals from the sludge.
    The sludge, which has a negative profit margin and needs to be disposed of at great cost, is therefore a problem for waste management.
    Someone got the bright idea to rename toxic sludge to "biosolids" and try to sell it as fertilizer and market it as a "sustainable solution."
    Lobbying happens.
    People who don't understand the science and only have waste management people talking to them believe their sales pitch.
    It gets sold to municipalities and sprayed on public lands.


    Tell me what he says in reply.
    If it turns out that they've come up with an effective way to remove the heavy metals and other contaminants from the sludge, please let me know and provide a link. If it's legit, I will retract my entire argument.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks
