near death experience?? not mine. happy ending Show more
Blessings to ostara and thank god me and my coven went out to do a ritual in the park tonight. A man fell in the river and we happened to be there to call 911. He’s going to be okay thank the gods but had we not been there he could have gone under the ice. Praise to the old gods and thank everything that it turned out okay
Anyone know who this dragon is?
And yes, you may boost...
Patreon News (-) Show more
As many have been expecting, Patreon is unveiling the multi-tiered funhouse version of it's service to pointlessly try to siphon more money from you and your supporters.
Part of this change is to try to reintroduce payment processing fees charged against low pledges, but to prevent another backlash, this is only for creators that join after the transition date, so if you want to set up a Patreon, you should do it soon.
(thread) personal/status -- plurality, speaking (+ but sort of process-heavy) Show more
most of us can't speak, save for whispering or the occasional exclamation.
two of us can read things aloud, and i can script and memorize things to speak. i also burn out from speaking (and masking) fairly quickly, so its utility is fairly restricted.
Art commission Show more
I got this commissioned because I felt the style of the artist fit really well with @kel and I hope that xie likes it. Can send the file if xie wants, as it's intended for xir to use. Mostly it was trying to see how we like getting commissioned artwork done, and I picked the artist, and found something that seemed like a good way to go with it. Not *quite* sure that the green is right. Or for that matter the purple.
Another nazi instance - admins should block/defederate Show more
idk if this is a new instance or just one I haven't been familiar with but I suggest any and all admins block waifuappreciation.club as one of the first user results I came across was someone saying oppression of trans people doesn't exist and that nazis don't exist anymore because blah blah blah who cares it's an instance for nazi shitters.
I definitely think this is a result of the fact that "not having kids" is considered a socially valid life choice for the first time in like, ever maybe.
And I think that's a good thing! Raising kids is mad hard, and not everyone can do it. Sometimes you're just not equipped to physically, financially, and emotionally support another human being for 18+ years. And that's fine! Better to realize that now instead of fucking up some future person's whole life.
venezuela, nation-wide blackout, long post Show more
at 5pm on thursday, everything went dark. we didn't care much for it cause we're kinda use to it. it's usually just for a few minutes or hours. we didn't know how bad it was. by saturday morning people were desperate
no water, no electricity, no phone calls, no internet, no food
the electric company released a statement saying that all was caused by a lack of proper maintenance of the plant, they warned this was gonna happened but no one listened. the government, as always, blame their "enemies". it was an attack they said
everything went back to kinda normal this normal but most cellphones still have no signal, including mine. most businesses are still closed and some were looted during the weekend. I heard that over 80 people died in hospitals including newborns
last night I went out to protest and we were received by the guards and their pigs with rubber bullets and tear gas
I showed up for work just so I could get online and gather some info, I'll share what I can find
I'm ok, but damn, this was one rough weekend
Podcasts with no obvious RSS/ATOM feed Show more
It seems that a lot of the podcasts that I look at (I can't say percentage wise, because I haven't been tracking) think, "podcast" means, "iTunes" or "Google Play Podcasts" almost exclusively. They may offer "alternatives" but all they do is point you back it iTunes or Google Play Podcasts. I am not convinced that I *can't* get them, but why are so many of them not relatively easy to get a feed for?
people called "Scanners" Show more
Possibly related to plurality: Has anybody heard of Scanners (in terms of people)?
A Scanner is "someone fascinated by so many areas she can't settle for only one."
I'm not a big fan of labelling here, but it actually helped a lot of people. Barbara Sher coined the term and wrote a fair bit on it.
"To Scanners the world is like a big candy store full of fascinating opportunities, and all they want is to reach out and stuff their pockets."
"It sounds wonderful, doesn't it? The problem is, Scanners are starving in the candy store. They believe they're allowed to pursue only one path. But they want them all. If they force themselves to make a choice, they are forever discontented. But usually Scanners don't choose anything at all. And they don't feel good about it."
Marvel Cinematic Universe (question) (probably spoilers) Show more
I just watched *Black Panther* and at the end we see Bucky, and I really am wondering if it is canon around the Bucky/Steve relationship. And if it is in MCU, what about the original comics (and how far back).
Updating this, wanted to, but now not sure what to say. Feeling frustrated with *everything*.
