Well, just got around to reading Act 4. I guess this is where it got weird? I remember having trouble keeping track of the trolls the first time around.

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.

It's basically just a zip up poncho, and it's the silliest article of clothing I've ever seen.

It's available in multiple colors.
Somehow, the thing this makes me think of is "did anyone cross this theme over with the DPPt Battle Tower theme"

(the answer appears to be no)

um. I'm not getting any audio from anything since... the Act 2 fight scenes. Is there supposed to be? There's certainly the mute button. The older things still have audio when I go back to them.

Act 2 seems a lot longer than Act 1? Act 1 only took a few hours to read through.

this weekend I intend to figure out what subset of my old socks can be darned and what additional stuff I need for that.

um. I guess?

trying to follow along with @DialMforMara 's . I tried reading it twice while it was still in progress. Can't remember how far I got the first time. Second time, I remember that there was a page with a large green circle (a sun? but that might be mixing it up with something else) on it near where I stopped, but I'd lost track of the plot long before then.

I'm intermittently getting follows from a particular other instance ( from users with no toots. Not sure what to think. Is that a network-abuse-bot thing? I've been blocking out of paranoia.

the 588th Night Witches were a squad of russian bomber women who earned their name Nachthexen from the nazis because they would fly by night, turn off their goddamn engines to swoop in their outdated planes (often crop-dusters), whoosh over the target making this amazing sudden "witch's broom" RRSSSSH sound and manually eject bombs on german targets. they sometimes used their chart pencils as eyeliner and did not use radios and minimal metal so they couldn't be detected. No parachutes, no nothin. fuckin' ride or die. Marina Raskova assembled and trained this all-female team of fighters, many of whom were rewarded prestigious medals and in total over thirty thousand missions were completed. Thirty pilots were lost. They were hated and feared by the nazis who would receive high honors if they could actually take down one of the Night Witches and also assumed they had been experimented on so they could see in the dark. uh sorry, douchebags. but the witches are just better than you.

i've just added a dialogue-only youtube video about a (Ithkuil) to my previously music-only "feel better" playlist.
