hello, GUY, this is your cousin MARVIN RITCHIE, you know know that new sound you've been looking for? well listen to THIS:

🎶prince ali, yes it is he, but not as you know him, read my lips and come to grips with reality🎶

Which direction does your icon face?

Please boost for highest possible demographic :)

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
This is the ideal male body. You may not like it,
but this is what peak performance looks like”

I am so tired. New job is fun so far, but really took it out of me.

Hey folks. We had some downtime this morning, thanks for your patience.

Related to this, if anyone is interested in being a backup admin for the Shop, please let me know! I could use your help.

Over the holidays I moved my blog from github.io to self-hosted.

This mostly consisted of wrangling with pelican static site generator config and I wrote about it.

If polyam folks call the people they <3 sweeties / cuties, can polycoop folks call the folks they’re working with beepies (BPs for short)?

Hold on...

I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool gath.io

The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

Today I remind myself, and anyone who needs to hear it, that when I look at past moments and cringe, it means I am a better person today.

So are you.
