Here's an HTML version of my "hi 2021" zine -- a tarot reading and journal prompts about the new year. jlowatari.com/hi2021/

I also have a zip file of the pdfs (one 1-sheet 8pg mini booklet, one 1-sheet spread), pics of the Tarot cards, zine assembly guide, text version, and HTML version. PM me for the URL since that's on my personal hosting.

Hey Fedi,

My housemate has accessibility issues, and we're probably going to need to get her a new laptop soon. Does macOS or Windows have good voice typing/navigation options? We already know that Linux is kinda crap for that.

Questions about language learning, boosts+ 

So, for people who are learning a new language or already learned one. How do you do it? Do you have a certain way of learning? Use flashcards to learn vocabulary or only learn full sentences? Try to get all the grammar rules in, or just don't bother with it? I'm also interested in how much time you spend on average learning it. I'm curious.

My friend circle had a tense conversation about whether police dogs can be Good Dogs.

Found a bunch of my French language reference books! I'm focusing on Spanish right now, but I'm a little tempted to do some French review. However, I'm actually more craving learning about a language with features I'm not super familiar with ever since a friend was overwhelmed by noun cases in Polish... Idk! Maybe what I'm really craving is to learn ABOUT different languages rather than to learn to use them, and that's a distinction I should practice discerning.

John Carpenter's The Thing, but every character who has been replaced by a John Carpenter's The Thing is (without acknowledgment) portrayed by a Muppet

I've read one too many sad Harry Potter fanfic for the week and all i wanna do is keep reading sad fanfic, which i suppose why it's good that my friend is making me visit him for a bike ride.

@hardcorenarrativist Figured you might get a kick out of this mini zine I laid out for a game my friend threw together in group chat one day.

also, i'm feeling very gamesy this past week, so I think I might play FIRE soon.

Is there such a thing as interactive fan fiction? (Or would it be fan interactive fiction?) I've been brewing in my head whether I'd want to try to write one?

Gender assignment? Fuck why did no one tell me we had gender homework?!

We're all made of "star stuff" they say. I prefer to think I was "upcycled" from "star trash."

Calling all lesbians, bis, pans and all queers 

@InternetEh I don't read many romance-focused novels but I do have a bunch of YA superhero novels with romance subplots of varying prominence:

Dreadnought by April Daniels is about a trans lesbian superhero
Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee is about the bi daughter of two superheroes
Hero by Perry Moore is about a gay superhero

Lots of online libraries have tried to become more accessible during lockdown. Many books are available to read online. Some very old. With strange writing, indecipherable illustrations, and curious looking symbols. Be careful, if you’re taking notes. It’s unwise to copy down any sigils unless you know exactly what you’re doing.
