idk how many times I need to say "I'm a big mchuge tankie and if you hate monads or whatever please just block me so I don't have to see your ugly mug liking my posts" but like. here's me saying it again I guess

my pronouns 

I'd most prefer a/am pronouns. if you've never heard of them, that makes sense, because I made them up. thought they sounded cool. they're pronounced like how they look. here's how to use them: pronoun.is/a/am/air/airs/amsel

next favorable are splat pronouns. although please never attempt to say them out loud, or just like. pretend to make a censor bleep noise with your mouth, I guess? these are meant to be used in text only: pronoun.is/*e/h*/h*s/h*s/h*sel

after that, I still like being referred to without pronouns, by name, or with other roundabout non-pronoun words

now that I have pronouns in place, there should be no grammatical issues from trying to avoid pronouns. so never refer to me by they, he, or she. "it" isn't really mine to take as far as I'm aware, but I'm not against it. it still ranks far below no pronouns, though.

"hey baz what about that emoji font you were working on" ssssssSSSSSSHH 

but in reality part of why I've stopped is I really haven't been able to find a good resource on how to make combining glyphs in a "symbol + ZWJ + emoji_signifier" or even more complicated zero-width-joined emoji in fontforge or anywhere else really. like I'm stuck at those dumb technical points now

but anyways I'm thinking of maybe even doing an extensive animation with a relatively simple model. that might be fun

like in that peepy model I had the tiniest bit of a clear-plastic material for the "whites" of the eyes. idk how noticeable it is but the pupils do get warped from it as your angle to it moves

doctors hate him. one simple trick for more lifelike expressions #arttips

the main reason I don't regularly use eevee is I'm constantly putting some kinda glass or liquid or slime or something in my models. I'm rarely ever not doing something like that. if I could withhold my desire for just like "ooo shiny" for like a moment maybe I'd be able to get a half-decent render out in less than a day

testing both eevee rendering and normalmap textures. I can actually do high-quality renders without letting my laptop sit overnight, if I don't mind some material weirdness (hidden for eye contact)

i mention this because the online white grievance apparatus is getting up in arms about this paper

journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/

> Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “white” people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate. Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation.

will this gimmick get old quick? yes. suck every last one of my dicks about it

Show thread

by "I think I'll post this every day" I actually meant "I'll post this every day someone posts something that reminds me of the fact" which like. is not as often as my outside irl life but still is pretty often
