I'm so happy to share the link to our brand new , !

You can listen on the page, or with your preferred podcast client.

There's also text transcriptions, show notes, and a proper explanation of the term 'kazumpet'.

I hope you enjoy the first episode, and share the link anywhere that might enjoy hearing from a couple of clowns embarassing themselves with a microphone.

Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

Start your week off with clowns!!
(by that I mean me and my partners)
We're doing Acro practice!

Join the clowns for a new week of conversation, gravity defiance, and other related shenanigans in the video chat.

We'll be in the chat starting at 8pm UTC-5, and working on our skills all night.

Your company would be greatly appreciated.

it's my birthday. if you'd like to help me celebrate, here's what you can do:

* be kind to yourself. this could be buying a lil treat, eating a favorite meal, sleeping in, taking a long bath, embracing your cringe, forgiving yourself for a mistake, whatever

* if you have the resources, support someone or something who needs it, whether that be giving time, money, energy, kind words, whatever you feel able to do. and if you don't feel able to do anything, refer back to the first request

Inside of an old Stark accordeon i took apart yesterday. That mechanism is a work of art.

And it's time again for the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour! Join us for a chat and we'll be doing #CircusInPlace after :D

"I found these centuries-old comics about people with 'super powers'. Did people really have those?"
"No, people have never had- Heh. Well, some did. People like us did."
"Like us? But we're nothing special, there's nothing unusual about us."
"In those days, we were invisible."
#MicroFiction #TootFic #SmallStories #BiVisibilityDay

Grab a cuppa and join us for the Friday night edition of the video chat, kicking off with the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour!

We'll be there starting at 7pm UTC-5, and practicing our circus skills all night.

We'd love your company.

Words to live by for those of us building machines:

“We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.”

~ Charlie Chaplin

Once again it's Wednesday, and that means time for another night with the (actual) clowns in the video chat.

We'll be in the chat practicing our circus skills starting at 8pm UTC-5, and there well into the wee hours of the night/next morning.

Come by and say hello. Your company would be most appreciated.

Sick of events starting with the chair saying "We've made it work during COVID, but it's so much better in person."

Instead try "We want to make sure everyone can engage with the debate remotely. Remote access is critical to help engage with marginalised groups."


When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

I'm like "meeeh, there's nothing to read on Gemini" and then @kelbot posts a new #Smolzine.
It's a really good one!

Show thread

In an attempt to describe the video chat, I came up with this:

"An online rest stop for the psyche."
