Pinned toot

Gonna see if I can pin this to my timeline properly so as people show up they can intro.

So I'm Visi. I'm 25, they/them. I do technical theatre, usually hair and makeup but I've been known to dabble in props n shit also, or costumes sometimes if nobody cares that I hate sergers. I'm a true crime nerd, pokemon go player, and all around human dumpster fire. I host, and do a lot of the day to day shit in the system. I'm here to meet new systems and make friends and such and like? Learn? idk. I've known about us for like 4-5 years now but I've never engaged in a meaningful way with the community as a host, even though some of the others (egg im calling u out) really wanna connect. So yeah. Whaddup guys?

shoutouts to, beings that are unapologetically weird on main; systems with absolutely wild or unconventional dynamics, beings that completely abandon any semblance of traditional being or sanity, those who are so beyond any concept of normality held by those who align with strong norms

hella,

this happens more often than you’d think.

...plurality is interesting

Periodic reminder that no matter what corporations raised you, that still doesn't make them your friend. You can be a fan of Nintendo's games and understand that they're one of the greatest dangers for video game preservation. You can be a fan of Disney's movies and understand they've pillaged the public domain and done their best to pull the ladder up behind them. Corporations are cold, unfeeling machines, and no matter how much they pretend they're friendly, it's a Terminator underneath.

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing

The year is 2022. Every social media site sucks because its only motive is profit and its profits are raised from things like "driving interactions through divisive content" and "creating fomo and infinite scrolling holes" instead of things like "fixing bugs to make sure the platform is useable" and "having literally any form of human support to solve issues users may experience"

It's been linked here before, but just in case others haven't seen it yet there's a lovely project called Standard Ebooks (standardebooks.org) which has a bunch of "remastered" public domain books drawn from Project Gutenberg. There's lots of good stuff in there and the books look great as well.

covid, putting on my dad hat, risk assessment 

Judging by what I'm reading about hospital capacity, and from the local EMT friends my roommate knows, now would really be a good time to practice IRL risk assessment.

Everyone's already made up their minds about covid risk levels and balances, so I won't harass except to say Get Your Boosters Please.

But also:

Cook and clean carefully.

Watch the state of the leftovers you eat.

Don't do anything stupid with electricity, wires, or your space heater.

Consider postponing repairs and projects that need power tools, if you can.

Stay off interstate highways as much as possible.

Watch. Out. For. Ice.

People are already sitting in ERs for *days* at this point. This won't last forever, but it might be a good idea to live like you're made of breakable materials for a few weeks. Because you are. 💜​

*walking out of an art museum*

weird how every painting in the last hundred years is a terrified commentary on capitalism

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

Creative professional life hack: if you live in the United States and are wondering how much to charge for creative labor, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps records of hourly wage estimates by occupation: bls.gov/oes/current/oes_nat.ht

Find what you do, find how much people get paid for it, and multiply by how many hours it takes you to do a thing. And if you want to charge less than that, invent things to sell that take fewer hours, because you deserve to be paid fairly.

@GwenfarsGarden For sure! I also did this one for someone else a little while back in case you didn't see 😂
