Sending me a follow request?

LET ME KNOW.

I never think to check my follow requests, so it's either tell me or be willing to wait several months.

Bucket theory, for the rest of you, is the idea that everyone has one bucket. Stressors add to the bucket. Some things like sleep and relaxing drain the bucket. But when the bucket is full, more stressors can't fit and it overflows and gets everywhere.

I like to call it "the cope bucket"

HELLO HERE I AM AGAIN EVERYONE ON MY FLAG BULLSHIT

I have gotten some good feedback from people and I am leaning towards using the attached image, combining the elements of my original idea with the unanimous feedback of "too dark".

Bonus from @maple are the choice of purple - # A000CE (get it???) - and the diagonal variant

I'm going to redo my :flag_asexual: icon and a special mention to @Aster (who made amazing icons using the darker one just now!) in case they want to change them!

James Nicoll is looking for young folks (born after 1990) to participate in the next round of Young People Review Old Science Fiction james-davis-nicoll.dreamwidth.

it sucks that criticism of the exploitation in sex work in mainstream discussion is always used as proof that it鈥檚 somehow a uniquely and inherently bad industry instead of recognizing that analogous exploitation happens in literally every industry. discussions of labor conditions in capitalist societies are very rarely used sincerely, unfortunately, even though it鈥檚 like the #1 issue in most people鈥檚 daily lives

I feel pretty confident that it's like 90% due to importing words and names from other languages but it's still, like, there are so many places where you know who's not from around there by the fact that they pronounce something the Wrong Way

and I don't mean accent or idiomatic pronunciation like New Orleans, I mean things like whether you say, for example, Monticello with a -ss- or a -ch- in the middle

So @Terrana has been playing around with some syllable generator code based on the phonology of English (which is very entertaining) but it reminded me of a thought I had earlier today, which is that, like

people talk about how different combinations of letters sound completely different in different words, right, that's a common "what the heck, English" topic

the real fun comes in when you start pronouncing the SAME WORD in different ways. Like with names.

Because of the defunding of
organizations and the lack of media coverage it鈥檚 hard to figure out what to do to help, but here鈥檚 what I鈥檝e found out:

Sign the petition to Demand BlackRock stop financing Amazon destruction, they are a huge contributor to climate change actionnetwork.org/petitions/si

Sign with Brazil鈥檚 resistance and donate here: amazonwatch.org/take-action/pl

Petition to stop the exploitation of the rainforest which you can sign: change.org/p/impedir-o-desmata

Also: ran.org/

The Amazon rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks, the fires are raging so strong that cities kilometers away have been darkened by the ashes.

The current Brazil president, Ja铆r Bolsonaro, is a climate change denier, he鈥檚 withdrawn a lot of the protections that were in place to protect the rainforest, there is no official media coverage.

Fires are being started deliberately to illegally deforest indigenous land, people have died in the fires already Patax贸 woman says twitter.com/sunrisemvmt/status

Like don't get me wrong I am heavily into the optimistic type of steampunk instead of the dark and gritty kind but that doesn't mean it isn't still about fighting back against the oppressive uniformity and exploitation of mass industrial capitalism enforcing class divisions and suppressing individual creativity

Bit of a tangent but if your ___-punk doesn't have inherent running themes of resisting an oppressive class structure then what is even the point

Actually it only just occurred to me that "screw mainstream fashion acceptability" is The Most Punk and I'm feeling a lot better about life and presentation

"But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet."

I've decided my ideal fashion aesthetic is neon punk steam

"Don't you mean steampunk" no because that's lost all useful meaning and just reads as "fantasy Victorian gentry" and I'm like y'all look I want wild hair and chains and patched-together hand-me-downs shit too, screw mainstream fashion acceptability

Now that I have my phone again I want a new cute puzzle/sim game >.>

Fun fact: you can turn most common nouns into an insult by prefacing it with the words "complete and utter".

For example: what a complete and utter handbasin that person is.

It's overcast and the windows are open and the air is normal and nothing is on fire. Things are okay.

I'm going to get some coffee and breakfast.
