Belated intro Show more
I'm doing an #intro because I never did one when I actually joined a couple weeks back.
I'm in the US. I'm a career educator, currently in the library field. I read when I can. I play and record music (mostly noisegrind) with cheap equipment for fun and no profit. I love open-source software and tools with which people and communities can express and empower themselves. Glad to be here. Hello.

livestock mutilations Show more
I have a solid hypothesis for old alien livestock mutilation cases. There WERE aliens visiting Earth, back in the '70s and '80s. For interstellar travel reasons we as a species don't yet understand, they just needed to collect enough cow eyes and horse vulvas to get home. The cases dropped off when they got enough.
weed legalization, lewdish Show more
I don't smoke weed, but I still enjoy seeing little folding café signs on the sidewalk that say stuff like "West Virginia OG Sticky Purple Wizard Pube is back!" chalked in dainty, curly handwriting and surrounded by hearts.
The Cher-ror (lyrics) Show more
To the tune of "If I Could Turn Back Time":
It's fuckin' Tuunbaq time
It's gonna find a way
To tear out your soul and devour you
If you stay

rant about foss nerds and the software industry Show more
It’s a great day to dunk on some chud-ass foss nerds. Let me tell you: I read the GNU manifesto when I was just starting my career. We were supposed to be increasing access to software for everyone! In the intervening 20-plus years, “open source” is used mostly by huge companies to save money, RMS has literally eaten his own feet, and the software industry is full of self important racists who think they’re in a meritocracy. Burn it all down.
Gab, fashy nonsense, and admin work Show more
I'd just like to say a big thank you to all the admins who're working hard to block all of the garbage which has been appearing here recently. I think I speak for everyone who matters when I say, we appreciate the effort you're going to.
Whatever happens, I think it's important that we maintain our spaces here and take a zero tolerance approach towards fashy garbage and hateful scumbags. They want this place? They can't have it!
Tolerate anything except intolerance!
