If capitalist puritans want people to be gainfully employed, fine, let's do this! Under the principle that employment must be gainful, employment that impoverishes workers is summarily banned. Pay below living wages and unpaid overtime? Crimes against gainful employment. Since housing costs are a major source of worker poverty, employers must subsidize housing whether directly to workers or through public programs. Same for transport.

As employment is often not gainful to disabled and sick people, resulting in net loss of health, their livelihoods must be supported, as should their caregivers. Work accommodations must be given to disabled and neurodivergent people who can and want to work, so that they can work without harm and their employment remains gainful.

I mean... this IS what it means, right? For people to be gainfully employed? 🤔

Please send me all your project-finishing energy! I'm so close to the end of this novel draft.

No I'm not procrastinating, what made you say that?

For reasons- please share you favorite fictional curse words, swears, etc.

I am so close to the end of this draft I can taste it. But my brain would rather sit with that excitement than actually...finish the damn draft.

Wrote a few more pages today. We're getting close to the end folx! Got about 20 more pages left in this notebook and then I think I'm going to start typing up draft 2. I might not finish the climax by then but I think I'll be close enough and I'm getting itchy about having a digital version of this story!

I have all these unfinished bits of electronic music (of varying quality) lying around and I think I just wanna add lyricless screaming over some of them, how the hell do I go about finding people that wanna provide me with .wav after .wav of screams

(I say how, i guess this is an open call?)

It'd be a collab + I'm open to working with multiple screamy people - I don't really want to sample cis white men screaming just because there's enough of that in music already
