drawing makes me happy, so why haven’t i drawn anything in like, months?

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.

I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:

I love how most of the fediverse seems to be flavor of trans, non-binary, genderqueer, demi-gender, etc.. I wanna see the stats! Tell me who you are!

Here's one of my absolute favorite shots, "Momentary", where one had been sailing over the other, before being kicked out of the way mid-air, leaving them with a perfectly hapless expression.

The biggest problem with phone app stores is they don't have any theme music playing in the background.

my current background viewing choice (while working) is the youtube channel Occult Demon Cassette. it's a bunch of VHS tapes ranging from "satanic panic" videos by evangelical groups, to "Phone Power," a 1988 instructional video about how to make business phone calls

TL;DR: "Voting with your wallet" in capitalism doesn't work because those with a bigger wallet get more votes.

And policing the consumption behavior of others is just shouting to people how they should ineffectually vote with their wallets.

A little more: Some peoples' wallets are so restricted that their capitalist "ballots" are also restricted, consumption-wise. Please bear this in mind.

If you want to affect *real* change for the better in this corrupt world, go after the system. Hold corporations accountable for the consumer goods they create, how they do it, and support plans to downsize them and democratize and unionize their workplaces.

i should be catching up on work but instead i'm watching trailer reaction videos on youtube

i still don't know what to watch. maybe i'll read? or... slep

just spent at least half an hour trying to decide watch to watch-- i feel like watching something but i don't feel like watching anything?

tech/brain rant i guess?

tech/brain rant i guess? 

i swear, i waste so much time in my life chasing down the solutions to minor tech issues i run into, rather than just shrugging my shoulders and coping like a healthy person might. the small annoyances irritate me and i feel the need to fix them RIGHT NOW

meta, cursing
