I started a Discord server recently. Come along and say hi if you're into (or any art), , , either creating or enjoying

Since everybody's all about supporting artists at the moment I decided to create a Liberapay account. Almost all of my artwork is available under a Creative Commons license, and I will not be minting any NFTs.

Anything you want to donate is much appreciated, and if you can't or don't want to I hope you enjoy my art anyway, no pressure 😄

I have another mastodon profile! If you're interested in cooperatives, non-hierarchical organisational structures, alternatives to capitalism, or anything like that, follow me over on

I probably won't post there as much as here, I'm not exactly a wordsmith.

Hello all, I am an and artist mostly, but I also do some traditional and other types of digital art.

I'm particularly interested in genres, and themes around AI, identity, selfhood, authority, the illusions of consumerism, religion and capitalism, and workers rights and democracy.

But mostly I ignore all that and just do whatever tells me :P

I know I've been quiet lately, for a number of reasons which I don't want to get into. Here's part of a background that I've been working on for a game as proof of life.

In the first section of the ad a guy types "communism is evil" out loud and his account is immediately suspended. Even in the socialist bubble I undoubtedly live in online, I see that sentiment expressed every single day.

I'm getting conservative Canadian ads on YouTube today for some reason. Bizarre

The TV show "For All Mankind" also did this weird thing where they had a fictional Soviet moon landing featuring a real male cosmonaut, and then a second one with a fictional female cosmonaut.

The actual first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, wasn't mentioned until the second season - her accomplishment erased by a show that's ostensibly about women's empowerment.

Such a gross weird piece of American propaganda

Somebody said to me yesterday that "The Shape of Water" was full of "political correctness" but that "Parasite" had "no message", and I just find that fascinating.

Really struggled to get the SSL working for this. Every example I found of how to do it in Twisted was different and none of them worked as advertised

Serving a little gemtext using Twisted in . It's going to serve as the dev server for the static site generator I'm adapting.

something i have never understood about traditional journalism is why it is so fucking impossible for them to LINK to the ORIGINAL THING that the article is about.

In a rush to titillate and shock a perceived liberal and middle-class readership, in the lead up to the 2016, the mass media rushed to cover with glee the emerging Alt-Right - everything from the meaning of the Pepe the Frog meme to 'fashy haircuts.'


Since the start of this century, small and mid-sized towns have courted big box stores, using tax revenues to fund expensive road, sewer and electric expansions to lure large corporate chains to town.

These companies promised jobs and tax revenues, and, *technically* speaking, they delivered both, but only if you do some very funny math. National chains pay little or no federal income tax, and often secure state tax abatements.


I do remember the first time I used a CD-ROM. My dad got a Macintosh Performa from work that came with the terrible "multimedia" games "The Daedalus Encounter" and "Inbred with Rednex", as well as the really good game "Myst", all on shiny discs! That was an exciting day.

It seems weird that I can't remember the first time I used WiFi. You would think that would be memorable for somebody who grew up with only cabled networks.

I took over the task from somebody else, and it was a bunch of nasty manual shuffling of CSV and Excel files. I'm hoping some day it'll be a 5 minute job, and basically free money!

I've been chipping away at a reporting job I do monthly by automating parts of it, and I have it down from ~ 6 hours to ~ 2.5 hours

Displate have a bunch of offers at the moment with the code PERSEIDS, to celebrate the Perseids meteor shower I guess!
