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.
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.
Mini Cornflakes Show more
Melinda says she was wacked out on some new drug called Mini Cornflakes. Found her naked at a gunshow whisperin' "My name is Paula Deen, welcome to my kitchen."
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
noise Show more
I made more noisecore. I recorded this on a piece of literal garbage without writing or practicing, and I think it shows. After years of effort, I'm finally getting worse at this. To give the composition its proper place within the Western canon, I've also included a sample of Pauly Shore from Encino Man.
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.
pinball Show more
There has never been a production Hellraiser pinball table. Think about what a travesty that is.
library stuff Show more
This is a very small thing, but I just last week realized that you can click anywhere in the supplier box in WorldShare when looking at holdings--not just the hypertext "Yes." This is going to save me tens of seconds each month.
My #SadMechJam 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!!!
caring Show more
Folks who don't care like to tell themselves--and everyone else--they have a "thick skin." They don't. They have no skin. Not caring is easy. It's just what broken, fragile people do when they're embarrassed and afraid. They're not fooling anyone, either.
I'm gonna give a shit. It's hard. It hurts like Hell. I'm gonna do it anyway, and so are you. We're strong enough, there are always more of us, and we won't back down.
