I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

before the invention of canning, they would make whoop-ass by gathering an assortment of leftover beatings, grinding them, salting them heavily, and stuffing them into pig's intestines or fish, then packing them tightly into an oak barrel and burying them in the cold earth to ferment for 18 months. opening up a cask of whoop-ass was a community event

Border Patrol “rescue” beacons are not a solution to the crisis of death and disappearance *created* by US foreign policy and the US #border apparatus; they are a public relations piece used by @cbp and #USBP to *distract* from this crisis. #HumanitarianAidIsNeverACrime

I took a TV programming course in college.

assignments included "you are the programming director of a local NBC affiliate. Fill in the holes in the week's schedule with syndicated programs you purchase using the money I give you, which is not enough to afford one good or two half decent shows, and the rest is gonna be the cheapest stuff availible. justify your decisions citing the last three years' nielsen ratings from the top 25 markets"

I wonder if the reason so many podcasts I like come out on Thursday is for advertising reasons–on tv certain advertisers (car dealers and furniture stores in particular) wanna advertise RIGHT before the weekend so that the company will be "in their mind" during their weekend shopping.

science fiction is a weird idea when you realise all Indigenous cultures are centred around creating a better future for many generations to come. they probably don't need dystopian novels to warn them that capitalism and war lead to a dark future.

Serious recommendation: if you like solarpunk, look into AfroFuturism. It's been around -way- longer, and tbh, solarpunk was probably inspired by it. The aesthetics and ideals often overlap, and there's way more lore and fiction to read! Also, you'll be giving a platform to people that have great ideas and need the attention.

If you like Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot, please block me now. It'll save us both time. Thank you.

People have very good reasons for not going to therapy, like some of us have traumas on top of traumas from psychiatry. Which therapists ultimately are part of, because if they decide we have to go to the hospital, we have to go to the hospital.

I go to therapy; I'm very, very fortunate to have found a good therapist. I 100% understand why people wouldn't want to go, though. Don't ever let anyone shame you for not going. Go on your own terms, and don't let a bad therapist abuse you.
