THE 9TH OF MAY | MOUNTOWN JOURNAL
ENTRY BY JEREMY/HI54LOFI | MAY 2018
This ninth day of May 2018—also known as 'The 9th of Meh' in some households (ok, only one household)—marks the return of the 95EH… thing. If you were on the wrong side of the algorithm that Facebook uses to decide who not to show posts to, here are 3 #DogsOfKimberley breaking down why 95EH is specifically returning on May 9th…
As you can see, this sort of calendar-related word play only comes around once a year (ok, sure, the 5th of September might work as well, but the illogical shorthand that puts the month before the day is more of a 'Merica thing). So, even though most of the 95EH logistics that need to be figured out still need to be figured out, this '9/5 ≈ 95' happenstance seemed like a numerical synergy way too good to just let pass by. I mean, you can't argue against math.
So, much like the local bears now rolling out of their BEAR HOLES after an extended hibernation (or wherever it is bears sleep), 95EH is now slowly rolling out of its 95EH HOLE. What 95EH will be rolling out as will be a work in progress (aren't we all?) — but, in a nutshell, the overall idea for the 95EH project is to be a collaborative platform that not only highlights the people / places / things in the area, but also tries to use the power of the internet in fun & interesting ways. I've got some general ideas on how I think that could work, but, for now, I will spare you the ramblings.
Instead, if you're a local writer / local photographer / local business / local creative / local local who thinks the internet & this section of the world are both pretty neat things, if you believe in the power of collaboration and DIY and mutual benefit and doing things differently and all that good stuff, or maybe you just want to say "hey", feel free to reach out to email@example.com about whatever (whether that's questions or comments or ideas or et cetera). Or, you can just use the handy form below:
In the meantime, from this 9th of Meh onwards, I will start re-dedicating some of my tinkering time back from another internet project over to this Highway 95/a one, eh. When something new is added or something old is updated, the 95EH socials will probably be the best place to keep up to date… so if you're not already, please follow along / say hello on whichever ones you use:
