sffbookclub meta crowdfund Show more
The Mastodon #sffbookclub crowd-fund is again operational on @Liberapay at https://liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFBookClub/receiving/
When Liberapay had problems last month, I withdrew the balance to date. I have just set what I withdrew (less the processing fee) to go back into the fund over the next month, at which time I will resume my own regular contribution.
As always, PM me if you need help affording the club selection or want more information about contributing.
* Quantitative research methods and statistics
* Accessing scientific articles from paywalled journals
* Frank discussion of mental health, specifically including bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders
* D/s relationships and select other kinky stuff
* Polyam relationships, specifically with D/s
* To-do-list management strategies
I've seeded the donations, but please consider contributing so that more people can enjoy the club.
I'm Naga. A statistical consultant by training and trade, but more here for general social interaction, especially geeky, sometimes sexy/kinky, and occasionally left-wing political. Oh, and new-dad stuff. Dragonlet is my toddler, Jalan is my wife.
a very nice trans girl I know who is a linguist is looking to talk to other trans women about voice training/modification stuff. reply if interested? she's a sweetie and her favorite thing in the world is vocal fry
Speaking of Aesop, the common understanding of the fable of the grasshopper and the ants is bullshit. It's actually a warning to artists that capitalists are evil bastards.
The grasshopper studied his craft and worked hard all year to entertain the ants for free. Come the Winter, they murdered him.
"Oh, playing an instrument isn't hard work", said the ants. The shifty little cunts.
Tried watching (James Cameron's) #Avatar yesterday.
Wow, this is . . . problematic.
I get the idea: Colonialism bad, exploitation bad, but also making an indigenous population with a mishmash of every white person's vague impression of Native American traditions -- and Bonus White Savior -- also bad.
I just finished "An Unkindness of Ghosts" by Rivers Solomon, and it's *good*. Y'all, who like #scifi and queer scifi, and don't shy away from harsh books with a fair bit of violence – go for this!
It's not light reading, set on a generational starship with a strict class-and-race based hierarchy, but it's really really good! The protagonist (a dark-skinned woman on the spectrum) and her friends go through horrible ordeals, but they experience very good things, too. #amReading
"I am not a robot! I am not a robot!" I continue to yell as the Turing cops drag me away. "You told me to click on all traffic lights, but you didn't specify if you just meant the lights or if the metal pole also counts! Human language is ambig-- I meant natural language!"
"The Black Company" is so good. I'm reading it for the maybe sixth, maybe tenth time before starting Cook's newest, "Port of Shadows". I really love this book, have for about 20 years.

So I promised someone at some point I'd post some pictures of a frog tie. You can still move around with this tie, but it's quite hard to do! If I was with someone else I would have had my arms tied behind my back too 😍
These were taken yesterday and oh by the way I got some new shoes.

The struggle is real.
Must. Resist. Mansplaining.
Ok, that got it out of my system.

Anyone who whines about Millennials spending too much money on frivolous things has obviously never lived in an apartment block with a body corporate that is 99% Baby Boomers.

A bit back Jalan offered me freedom to masturbate for a week--but for each orgasm I'd get two days in #chastity (starting) the next week.
Then we realized I was traveling the second week. Neither of us wanted to deal with TSA, not to mention hours in a plane seat. Wrong kind of discomfort.
So she added a week of masturbating freely.
I'd already racked up 8 days, and managed to hold myself to 10.
Then Hurricane Michael.
Finally started the sentence last night. #kink
The FDA requires it to be named “Cheez Whiz” because it does not contain substantial quantities of actual wizard
Eventually slept, then woke up hangry. Yay.
