Since June two massive protest encampments have unhoused people in Philadelphia have been demanding that the housing authority transfer their VACANT houses into a community land trust and give permanent housing to the unhoused protestors

AND TODAY THEY WON!! 50 Houses are being transferred into a community land trust owned by the unhoused protest organizers!! This is a HUGE precedent and a STRONG start! Philly is THE poorest major city America

The Caracal, also known as the African lynx /Gazelle cat, is an elegant, medium-sized cat.

Elusive & largely nocturnal, the caracal is a powerful predator known to take down prey much larger than themselves! Talk of fierceness, think caracal!

idk how else to describe it but logging onto mastodon feels like going into someone's basement. im not saying it is a good basement or a bad basement, but you can tell you're in one.

I did decide against trying to replace the bridge because the weird size of it in my guitar specifically promised to be especially nightmarish and I am not in fact a luthier. I do, however, own steel cans, tin snips, drill bits for metal, and clamps, so making my own platemate type cover and installing it was not an unreasonable proposition.

*flop* Danish oil already works best with long drying times between coats and this mix is tinted with oil paints, making the hardest part of the project not fixing (well, "fixing") the bridge, as expected, but waiting patiently for the stain to dry

People think it's impossible to write a Lawful Good Paladin and have them be fun, interesting, likeable, or at all any sort of human but Adventure Time has Finn so I think people are just lazy

To clarify, I am not especially interested in saving "America". That's just what shows up in that type of appeal.

"Voting is one of many tools we can use to stymie fascists and protect our own, and we need to use every tool we have to survive" is a much more effective message than "voting for our shitty centrist will SAVE DEMOCRACY AND AMERICA if you disagree you LOVE TRUMP AND HATE FREEDOM"

Breaking what was to be a de-stressing hiatus to ask for help.

Patreon support continues to sink. I haven't had any pay from any work since July. I just got an electric bill that will wipe out my account. Any help would be very appreciated.

US Politics, asking to donate to bail funds

Cops in Louisville just got away with murdering Breonna Taylor.

This ruling is just one more shovel full of dirt on the notion that Black people can get justice in US courts. The only way to get justice is to burn the country to the ground and build something better.
