Happy Tuesday, my lovely Masto.ARTists!
Today I have the task of informing you all on some moderation policies we're going to be following in a much stricter sense from now on.
As we know, a very popular Free Open Source art software called the Gnu Image Manipulation Program exists, and its very popular acronym is also an ableist slur.
From now on, we're going to require that when referring to the program, folks use the full name, or the term "Gnu IMP/GnuIMP" instead of the popular acronym.
god, there's a lot i liked about Iron Blooded Orphans
racism, interactions with white people
got asked about my "heritage" at work today, and ended my explanation with "that's why i have a weird face" and got a speech from a white woman about how i'm "beautiful" which i walked away halfway through. like, she asked a pointed question about how i look, not my problem that she felt bad about it
- not the album, the crane wife, but the band, the crane wives
with lyrics like: "and i know that you mean so well / but i am not a vessel for your good intent" and "on some level i think i always understood / that a ship could never really love an anchor"
crop top adventure thread (#sewing)
+ i cut the bottom off of a shirt that was attracting holes
+ hemmed it with a sewing machine and fucked it up a little (also listened to podcasts for six hours while doing so)
+ so now i'm hemming it by hand while i watch LOGH.
+ i want to put a drawstring through the end when i'm done
I think I got spoiled by character work in podcasts. This show is trying to make me care about the most boring characterization of "hero of justice who makes a bunch of hard choices" vs. "a fucking evil guy that's empty inside."
The lancer & saber thing is only interesting because it does some foreshadowing but like, I didn't really care about their interactions.
I like narrative foils and any attempt at making them sucked here, a lot!
