I suspect Courtney Milan is about to make a plagiarist very sorry:

It's not clear yet how many other romance authors have been affected.

I'm listening again, and I still don't hear anybody actually challenging the Beastie Boys' "right to party."

I want to play the saxophone, but I want to hold the duckie more.

Watching a ghost movie. Made a joke to my wife about how the monster will probably just be Javier Botet crawlin' around in dirty underwear again. Well, HEY Y'ALL GUESS WHAT?

"Braindead" is still the best Peter Jackson movie. Fuck it--it's just the best movie there is. In the world.

Definitely still believe this but don't know how we get there:

Digital preservation can't be something that only "digital preservation professionals" do, it needs to be something within reach of individuals who want to keep their own stuff during their lifetimes and then pass it on to friends and family. You're probably not going to run some ISO-certified preservation repository at home, but you should be able to keep your photos and home videos for yourself for as long as you want to keep them

I haven't read Naomi Novik yet, but I'm automatically a fan of anyone who can take a genre as dry and established as the naval adventure and just say "AND, DUDE, LIKE, FUG'N DRAGONS GODDAMN EVERYWHERE!" and fans of naval adventures are impressed by the result.

The thing about 'not all men' is it's something men bark at people who are lashing out at the group that's hurting them. Trying to separate themselves and remove any affiliation.

All it does is tell those people to shut up while doing nothing to change the structures that allow toxic masculinity to continue that original victimisation. Step in and tell fellow men to stop, that it's not ok, instead of telling people, especially women, you're not like the others so how dare we get angry about it.

My game, 'Lovers in Freefall', exists now.

Hold your lover's hand, ride into the black, take your Messer with you, and don't look back.

What's the best way to find and interact with other #librarians on Mastodon? The hashtags I've used and loved on Twitter don't seem to have users here...lovin' Mastodon, but still learn' the culture and best practices 🙂

Oh, I know and love the Trunk (though I should revisit it again, it's been awhile...)

Thanks in advance!!!

After I set up my old guitar for B standard, I tried it through my cheap Pocket Metal Muff clone--with the high boost switch on. It sounds absolutely horrendous, and I am very happy.
