Doesn’t do me much good having my #bulletjournal in the car, does it? :/
Wherein I toot about my bygone days of camming Show more
Camming was fun, but the tech side of it was a real pain in the ass sometimes. Now, I'm fiddling around with more SFW streaming and the stuff that's available is plain overwhelming. I am a bit jealous tbh.
Darkweb is a continuation on a "cybersoul" path, but with another, darker voice that raps, sort of. It's about digital life. About having trouble cutting through the noise of selfies, dickpicks, cats and political propaganda. To feel small alone and powerless, but still have a great, common and strong inner world. About getting out of one's comfort zone to find better fate and to put down your phone sometimes.
After months of pondering, I have finally been hit with an epiphany. I’ve struggled with the name Pity Party. Kinda cute and quirky (to me) it still definitely has a negative connotation.
BUT. I have finally coalesced an idea that theoretically ties all my favorite things together under a new pseudonym I’ve been testing out, so... time to re brand again :D
The whole "Oooh! Libraries are OBSOLETE, the world is DIGITAL now!" thing bugs me for four reasons.
(1) You know a lot of people actually like books that you can hold in your hand, right? And that there exist large numbers of books that ONLY exist in that format and haven't been digitized yet?
(2) Libraries have often been the centers of digitization efforts. Yes, you can find ancient papyri online. This is largely because of efforts like the one at the papyrology department at the University of Michigan library. The same is true of a bunch of other things.
(3) A lot of people have a library involved in their digital explorations, whether using machinery and connections AT the library because all they have is a phone, say, and perhaps a heavily metered connection, to access subscription only databases and archives, and to get help with research.
(4) They provide nuclei for community interaction, often around topics that improve people's relationship with knowledge.
I feel like not enough people know that the amazing/surreal/gross artist Shintaro Kago can be commissioned to do a crazy portrait of you for $65 plus shipping from Japan.
Subtoot, ableist language Show more
I keep seeing otherwise socially-conscious people continuing to use "crazy" and "insane" as casually as any other words.
Can we all please be aware of this casual ableism and work to remove it from our collective vocabularies?
