Sitting at home with a cold. I'm tired, but I try to make the best of things. Had a nice hot beverage and some nutrition. Playing some Witcher next.
Ugh, dass in allen, allen Serien alle Maincharas immer Autor_innen, Künstler_innen, Schauspieler_innen sind -_-.
Wo sind die Bürokaufmensch-Azubis, Dachdecker_innen, Steuerfachangestellten?
(en) Okay. I'm not going to check my Birdsite feed until I had the chance to watch Star Wars.
Seriously, how does that site w/o CWs even exist!? 👻
(de) Ok, ich werde meinen Feed auf Vogelseite nicht lesen, bis ich Star Wars sehen konnte.
Ernsthaft, wie kann diese Seite ohne CWs überhaupt existieren!? 👻
Confession: I don't like dragons.
Good morning 🐘!
Literal Nazis, Daily Stormer, Huffington Post Show more
Huffington Post claims possession of a Daily Stormer 'style guide' for writers: written by Andrew Anglin, the site's founder, and promoted by Vox Day and Andrew 'weev' Auernheimer.
Unless the provenance of this document can be disproved (because it is the Internet), it appears very explicit that yes, these are in fact *literal*, not ironic, Nazis and they are in fact committed to anti-Semitism and an end game of genocide.
thanks to Botnik Studios there's this: a chapter of Harry Potter written by a predictive text bot w/the entire Harry Potter series as its dataset. Things escalate fast
"Magic: it was something that Harry Potter thought was very good."
"To Harry, Ron was a loud, slow, & soft bird. Harry did not like to think about birds."
"Harry tore his eyes from his head and threw them into the forest. Voldemort raised his eyebrows at Harry, who could not see anything at the moment."

In my creative work, I'm primarily a live performance (circus and theater) creator. While successful in the past, #crowdfunding has been difficult for our company because of the additional, and sometimes seemingly Herculean, efforts we had to undertake in order to create physical products for rewards.
In the end we did it, but most of it felt unrelated to the work...and in some cases potentially damaged the work because of creative concessions that had to be made.*
*The example that comes to mind was adjusting theater lights and seating to accommodate video recording for a downloadable video of the show.
While the campaign was truly a rousing success, I can't help but feel like we spent a considerable amount of our creative energies making good on "begging-related" promises.
I'm curious how those who make things that can't be turned easily into downloadable or shippable goods make patroning and funding work for their projects.
Chime in. I'm curious.
Do I need to say more?
Do you know that feeling when you get into a room where 4 cis dudes sit around joking and you are not a cis dude and suddenly they all fall silent?
Hello Mastodon! Survived a meeting with 8 students and 2 teachers.
Also I might be getting ill again. Argh.
Fresh sheets! 💖
The 10 lives of TQ - when I look back, it's almost as if I've led that many lives so far. Today I can identify clear breaks and twists in my vita, and it's strange and fascinating and creepy.
To the Bettmobil!
(Some jokes can only be enjoyed if you happen to understand English, German and pop culture.)
Shoe problem Show more
Ordered Clarks Nature V a week ago. They arrived today. And they do not fit AT ALL. They are wayyy to wide at the front and not really comfortable. They are advertised as "the perfect comfortable shoe blabla", and I adore the design SO much! I do not own a single pair of sneakers, would have loved to keep them. 😢
