First post. Krita and MyPaint user who wants to make beautiful things. Desperately trying to improve. Here's a piece from 2018, "Approaching Destiny." it normal for every friend group to have "the one jerk" who is abjectly awful but who you're expected to tolerate to be part of the friend group? 'Cause this has seemed to happen every time someone tries to introduce me into a larger circle.

And when I say "no I'm not dealing with that guy" then that's it for that attempt.

Adobe Creative Cloud holds creative works hostage: if you stop paying the monthly fee or if Adobe's servers go down, you can't edit your work. Once you buy into the Adobe ecosystem, you're stuck there and forced to pay rent.

There are many free open alternatives which give you full control over your work without locking you down:

Realized that all the markets I used to send short fiction to are either gone or on indefinite hiatus.

Which explains why I've only been submitting to the rare anthology lately that aligns with my interests.

Which also means my bibliography is woefully short.

I guess the secret to getting more of a following on DeviantArt now is, "You probably can't."

One of the greatest tricks capitalism ever pulled was to convince people that it was synonymous with free markets (which is opposes) and commerce (which predates it by thousands of years).

The whole concept of influencers is bullshit. Stop allowing your opinions to be shaped by people who don’t even care that you exist.

Good morning, I've thought about it and the best part about Winnie the Pooh is that even though Eeyore is basically depressed he still gets invited to all of the things with his friends, and they never expect him to pretend to feel happy or force him to change, they just love him anyways and never leave him behind. And I think that's neat.

I visit the RWBY subreddit pretty often to sate my dark fanart desires, but since they announced the new writer, the shit side of Reddit has sure shown up in force there.

tired: male soccer players should earn more than female soccer players because of viewership

wired: female soccer players should get paid as much as male soccer players

in-fucking-spired: neither of these groups should be getting millions of dollars when this country is doesn't even support its homeless population, fucking hell, how did it come to this, i'm so tired, please-

Before I go off to celebrate Midsummer by being in bed sick (Swedish woes), I want to share a small update.

#Tusky will keep blocking servers which actively promote fascism. This in particular means Gab.

We will get our next release out just in time for the 4th of July.

Don't even try to debate us about Free Speech. This is our speech, exercising #ANTIFA views. And we will keep doing it :toot:

We will post a bigger update at a later time about what this all really means.

Wait I'm going to flying to Poland in a bit over two weeks and I haven't planned anything at all for that trip.

Personal stuff 

My need to use a backscratcher has gone up exponentially this year.

Just went on page on Google's playstore and downvoted and flagged 1 star reviews criticizing the developer's stance on blocking gab and other alt-right instances. I recommend every Tusky user (and others if you guys could) to do the same.

Nazis, alt-righters, white supremacists and sexists must never be welcome.
