my apologies for responding to a post on the internet, won't happen again

(this is here for the next time I need it)

I block pleroma/GS instances when I spot them, so if you're a non-shitbag using one of those techs, I likely will not see your responses, and I'm sure I've missed amazing responses from lovely folks, but I consider minimizing exposure between myself and pleroma/GS a higher priority than worrying about missing out on people. I'm not special. you'll find others to talk to; so will I. ^_^ <3

so apologies if my silence is rude, but it's due to circumstances beyond our control.

be well! ^_^

2020 time machine trashpost 

me: *invents time machine, moves a week ahead*

me there: it's only been a day

me: what?!

me there: it's 2020. go further

me: *goes back in, sets for a month ahead, gets out*

me there: it's only been a week

me: WHAT *jumps again, impatient now, for a year*

me there: it's been nine days

me: GODDAMMIT *jumps back again, sets the 'ahead' to twenty years*

me, there: it's only September. also we're starting to think that you time traveling causes 2020 and can you stop for the love of sweet merciful fuck

"in the future the only currency will be sick sword drawings"

tired: haha how ridiculous. that's now how currency works

wired: hmm. got some good detail on it. yeah i'd call that a sick sword drawing. worth at least a night's lodging. for it, i'd give you two.

i think if i have to keep up with all the news, the new memes, the new jokes, the new fads, i should be fairly compensated for it. like, a small fee, every time i have to look up what a thing means. every minute i spend working out who the hell this new famous person is. thats MY time it's eating into, and i want remuneration

feeling ill and probably won't be around

(like usual anyway 😔)

USPOL, KYPOL, Breonna, Everything is dry kindling. 

Grand Jury to rule on Breonna Taylor Cops this week.

Hint: They are boarding up federal buildings downtown, and my wife has been given an order to be prepared to shelter in place at her hospital tomorrow night.

Motorist on Shelbyville road forced his way through protesters this morning, exited his brown Ford Taurus with sidearm... looking for a fight. This is not downtown. This is a big shopping district.

Whole city is tense.

publishers wielding copyright is among the greatest barriers to interdisciplinary work


#TransCrowdFund hey greyhound just lost all my makeup and my laptop. I have an old laptop from 2011 but it’s less than ideal obviously. I’m also extremely dysphoric without makeup. If you can, it would mean the world if you could help out.

writing whining 

considering just crawling back into my non-humans fandom in a fresh persona so I can just start writing again and not feel like I'll accidentally cause a chain reaction or end up part of something horrible, like

well, all the horrible shit, nobody really needs reminders right now do they


theoretically wouldn't mind attempting a graphic novel with the right kind of art but the only ideas I have for those right now are pretty, well, ambitious at best


maybe I can get the action spy-on-the-run story or the witch "handfasting as adversaries but eventually falling in love" story working somehow but

also half considering extending my published novella as a full novel by filling more middle in and doing more with the ending


so if my research is right the walking dead is basically a show that asks the question "what will people from a world without the word 'zombie' call a zombie that isn't 'zombie' next" and that's subconsciously driven the audience for several years now? because holy shit


it is possible simultaneously
1) to believe that the system is built to be utterly unjust and that it needs to be dismantled asap and
2) to be upset by this shit and hoping for and trying to bring about a situation where the still extant system does the least harm out of multiple harmful outcomes

uspol, rough 

It's happening here. If we're honest, it's -been- happening here.

Strap on your seatbelts, friends, and make sure you've got some semblance of an affinity group whether you're stomping the streets or not.

so around a century ago, there was a comic strip called The Outbursts of Everett True, where the titular character saw people being rude jackasses and decided to deal with this harshly and folks a lot of these still hold up perfectly in modern times

but i am delighted to announce

somebody's found the comics about mask-wearing

and They're Good, Folks

(uncaptioned, feel free to help out with descriptions here, i'd appreciate it)

uspol, disinfo 

There are Russian campaigns trying to get left wing voters to sit out the US election

It is possible to both think that electoralism won't solve all our problems and that voting is a form of damage control. Don't be manipulated by fascists. Request a ballot. Cast a vote.

playing Halo 3 for the first time, reading terminals, WTH Forerunners 

ah, right, the Forerunners decided that saving non-sentient life at the cost of sentient life was an acceptable thing. sweet merciful fuck what a bad angle on this. this plan was your primary plan? how the fuck is that your primary jfc

USPOL, civil rights, horrendously bleak, absolute subtoot, also a trashpost, sorry! ranty DO NOT READ 

gee, I sure hope I survive the next wave of camps. because too many fucking asshats need to vote for a "conscience" instead of the bastard more people can survive.

I'm voting Biden and I'm going to criticize the living shit out of them to whatever degree I can get myself to and feel remotely safe

because I'd rather vote for a random kitten for chrissake

but I don't live in that world. (probably won't live in this one in ten years, either. HA HA HA)

maybe see you in the camps, if you're not a .1%er or whatever saves your particular butt. assuming I make it that far.

we'll all be under this train eventually because there's only one set of tracks through time. this is not a world people can even hide in now, not really.

(no responses, I barely got this shit out of my head and it's surely my madness talking, of course. not interested in debate. not even interested in thinking about this again, because that's why I don't sleep now. people talking about voting for ideals that aren't implementable before my inevitable death. but I'm glad, truly, that I now know that I am worth less than their self respect. people always teach you about them with their actions.)

control, covid (yeah) 

thinking about the people at the bureau who refused to wear the HRAs
