Today, we at Usual Pets will be horsing around! We’ll jam on the never-ending fullness of zeros, entryways to artful process through tension and release, how to write a first word, creative spaces in virtual worlds–and, does capitalism foster creativity? To kick it off, Richard offers the four-minute “Test Pattern,” a poem set to music, our WTF (wonderous-transmogrified-filament) for this episode. We also offer the music to “Pollinators,” an accompaniment to this episode’s video, available to our Patreon listeners.
