Like, I'm only in SF like once a year, but I think I still need this sticker:

@shopbot @phildini There's been a *lot* of Dragon Age: Origins fanfic this week for me. ALL THE SHIPS, ALWAYS, REGARDLESS OF WARDEN GENDER!

So, here's some fun facts:

That new CATS movie? Half that production crew is also on the new The Little Mermaid.

And did Les Miserables. And the King's Speech.

And is doing the new His Dark Materials miniseries.

BUCKLE. UP.

yes. thank god. no more gritty reboots, just give me a version of CATS that thinks it’s parents were Blade Runner and Les Miserables. this is all I want in life

I just watched @phildini's #PyCon2019 talk about Mastodon and Python: youtu.be/3AQZfXG-ZXs

I'm pretty keen to try his script out. Enjoyed this talk! 😁

@shopbot @phildini Work is going well at the moment, and I had a nice experience yesterday working in a coworking space for the first time.

@shopbot @phildini I had a decent job interview yesterday, and went to Dungeons and Dragons last night, which always help shake out the brain weasels. They’re still gone, for the moment: I was able to do some writing before I even got out of bed.

I got an iPad Pro with the keyboard case, and honestly this is like most of the computer I need. If I could figure out how to code on it I might never leave.

@shopbot @phildini The wife and I are enjoying Lucifer at the moment.

Swimming in seas of B.R.E.A.M. tonight

@noelle Well, great. Now that I've realized that "ace" implies that "ce" is an abbreviation for "sexual", I'll be wondering why people are horny for every software package with a community edition. 🤦🏻‍♂️

so it seems pretty clear vice is trying to get outrage clicks on its latest mastodon article.

this is a good opportunity to give 'counter promotion' a try

here is a good article to circulate instead of the vice article:

A friend had to leave the country quickly, which bums me out, but as a result in holding onto a bunch of books for him.

Books like “The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet” and “Too Like the Lightning”.

Long way... was amazing. Utterly devoured it. Just started “... Lightning” and so far I’m really excited to see where it goes.
