So I don't really post this kind of stuff on here anymore but we're about to get hit with a pretty sizable vet bill so if anyone wants to buy any transforming robot toys I wouldn't mind you taking a look at my eBay listings. ❤️

@ajroach42 We've made several small games and interactive experiences on packbat.itch.io/ #IMadeThese

Almost all of them are PWYW (one of the tech demos is marked as "no, don't pay us for this") and I think almost all of them are interesting and cool. weirder.earth/@packbat/1065034 is the thread we wrote about them on here.

I think "Driftself" is the one people have found most compelling and "1960 #7 in 72 minutes" is the most underrated (understandably, given the time commitment).

Oh shit, I didn't realize it was Buy Nothing Day.

Fortunately, I didn't buy anything (I don't buy things most days), but wow.

Due to their unique regenerative abilities, exposed neural tubes, & weird heart defects, axolotls are vital to scientific research.

To facilitate such research, they were cross-bred with albino tiger salamanders, so scientists could see their bones better. They also engineered the bones to glow green under black lights, although I'm not totally sure I understand how that helps.

Still, science is wild. I collected some of my weirder discoveries about bones over here: newsletter.eleanorkonik.com/bo

Remember--if you don't make racists uncomfortable it will be racialized people, Black people, Indigenous people, who will feel uncomfortable and unwanted. Which would you rather feel comfortable and safe, bigots or their targets? Choose accordingly. That choice will say much about you.

hey y’all. american thanksgiving is coming up. i know it’s a shitty colonialist holiday. but i think one way to make some good out of it is to donate money to your local food bank. thanksgiving is also traditionally a food and harvest centric holiday, and demand for food banks spikes during the winter, so i feel like this makes sense. also, the pandemic is still happening and many people are still struggling financially. so i hope you’ll join me in doing this. :boost_requested:

I just want you guys to know that the multiple *years* I've had my music on Spotify and iTunes have still made me less money than the first two weeks of the same albums on Bandcamp.

Please support artists directly if you can.
