Putting this out on the Internet because why not; if anyone in upstate NY east of the Hudson has even two acres of land for me and a partner to farm on, plus even just a little mobile home we could rent that's far enough back from the road to sleep at night, I'd like to talk :-)

Dressed for a wedding, but the kind where I can ignore the weather and go barefoot but have to wear my computer glasses. [eye contact]

This Independence Day, remember the native people who have suffered but preserved and survived for all these years despite our government's best efforts:

Donate to the Navajo Nation Covid-19 relief fund (both money and supplies, like homemade cloth masks!):

Support native owned businesses:

Donate to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund:

Don't just decry America, help support and bring about its future

Long story, but I have a small collection of unopened, unexpired food that I would like to donate. Can anyone in recommend an organization or mutual aid group that would accept this?

Central Brooklyn Food Coop is finally happening! Help them get started with this Kickstarter 🙂

They're by and for a mostly black community, and are going to be working to improve the links between regional farms and the city. Big ambitions for a food coop, and a welcome alternative to the often-less-revolutionary Park Slope Food Coop.

Graceless, anarcho-goth zine 

I finally read issue 1 of Graceless, the anarcho-goth zine from 2011. They addressed the rise and fall of DIY, recommended radical goth bands, and called out the misogyny of the goth scene.

> we demand that the goth scene be more than a black-clad reflection of mainstream society

when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"
