Pinned toot

For the folks who have followed me over from dot social, and new followers as well, I have a brand new Ko-fi set up if you like what I'm doing on Mastodon or on my website. You can buy me a "coffee" (even though I prefer tea) here:

If you want to read a bunch of free stories (and I'm working on a new one right now for the site), my website is here:

Ugh, just when I get used to having an always-on screen on my phone, an update occurs which makes the screen turn black instead of going to it. Now if I want the always-on screen, I have to tap the phone. Isn't the point that I *don't* have to do that?

Hopefully this is something that's just a bug that gets fixed pretty soon.

February 14 vs. April 23

The top of the collar on the tree is about 35", so roughly three feet of snow in the deeper spots.

Entertainment facts:

"The Hills Have Eyes" is not only the name of a classic horror film by Wes Craven, but also the entire plot of the game Bloodborne.

Well, maybe 6.5 if we're willing to give half-marks, but I think decimals in a fraction kinda screws up the whole metaphor.

Here's what THEY don't want you to know:

Weed isn't really all that amazing. It's all right, and kinda fun when you're with like-minded folks, but overall doesn't live up to the hype.

I'm on the Square Enix mailing list for some reason, and they regularly send advertisements for their games. It's not all that frequent so I don't really mind, but wow this latest one.

It's for some weird crossover between Star Ocean Anamnesis and Valkyrie Profile, and in the artwork that comes up EVERY female character is sticking their tits forward in a really obvious and awkward way. And natch, all of them are slim with huge boobs as well. It's really jarring.

The death of landline phones means that this cute Betsey Johnson fanny pack (first pic) is just fashion and can never be as cool as this 70s bag (second pic) which actually plugs into a wall and functions as a phone. (The answer is probably Bluetooth for a current day remake.)

You're only as young as you feel.

So feel a 20 year old today!

Does anyone know where I can find a blank for that Tom and jerry meme where he's looking around the corner with a bat, and the second time he looks the mouse is giant?

Hi everyone, I am excited to join the art community on Mastodon! I mostly paint, sometimes I draw. I never seem to have enough time for it, but I do as often as I can!
Here is my latest oil on paper, you may recognise the source material, I call it, "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHHH".

Skyrorn a much shorter game than I'd expected, thank goodness. At least if I went back to my last save and did the last double battle on Easy it was a lot faster and less frustrating. Seriously, on normal part one took MORE THAN A HALF HOUR. That's not good game design in an RPG, that's just a way to annoy the player.

In any case, at least it didn't wrap up with the shoehorned het romance I was afraid it would.

You know it's a bad RPG when the final battle(s) are so fucking tedious that I'm chanting "I don't want this" all the way through.

So yeah, don't play Skyborn. it's great up to a certain point, but then the difficulty ramps up at the end so you're pulling long, long, LONG battles that you're likely to lose anyway if you haven't been grinding as much as possible.
