Had time to re-watch part of this one today, so good.
"Roger #Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times rated the film four stars and called Sally Hawkins 'a joy to behold.' He added, 'This is Mike Leigh's funniest film since Life Is Sweet. Of course he hasn't ever made a completely funny film, and Happy-Go-Lucky has scenes that are not funny, not at all. There are always undercurrents and oddness.'"

I spent most of the day on #Gopher. It's a very pure experience, like I'm a kid again, looking through my dad's bookshelf where I don't have to worry about load time or cookies or JS or CSS or bad formatting. Just information.

Upon first reading I really thought Nancy was just referring to an essay I'd never read.
Lookin' good! These are ashcan copies of the game zine @maenad and I collaborated on: two different games about dying in space, combined in a flip-book format.
This is her photo, as today she's putting copies in the hands of some New Mexico-based gaming folks. We're not finished with the project, but... far enough along to see what it might look like in print.
Rue's dream come true is a bag, designed for sleep.
Dad and husband, a fan of scifi, the Internet Archive, coding, the fediverse, bikram yoga, sushi. I boost a lot of cat pics.
