My friend 3d printed these phallic mushrooms for me (hehehe) last year when i said i was interested in trying to paint miniatures. I'm finally starting the project this wk! I made the primer with gesso, acrylic extender, and a little bit of red and yellow to get a fleshy undertone. :P

I didn't know what i was doing (still don't) when first setting up my NAS last year. I already want to reformat it and redo it completely differently and actually commit to it being a media server rather than a half-assed backup server.

Every year in June I reread the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionary (STAR) manifesto that Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, and others, authored. It's a reminder of what we are fighting for. It's less than a minute read.

I've also been considering crossposting my tarot Instagram posts here? I'm doing a 13-month series of mini-readings about the Death Card (the 13th card of the major arcana) and have eleven more to go. I don't really talk about my tarot practice here, but sometimes i like doing these random deep dives into Tarot. If that sounds interesting to you, let me know!

So many hobbies... I am currently back to dabbling in Python/coding... and bookbinding, and I sense ham radio is gonna swing back around soon too. Maybe I'll actually get my amateur radio Technician license by the end of 2022?

I guess I'm trying this self-employed/freelancing nonsense again but being more selective and in-tune with the jobs I wanna take. If I'm bored of business sites then don't bother, yknow, even if I do need to bring home the bacon somehow lol

New Blind users to Mastodon, thanks for the follows! If you need a screen reader friendly getting started guide, see starshipchangeling.net/mastodo #FediTips #Accessibility #Mastodon #Twitter

I'm currently obsessed with Ben Schwartz from the After Party. His skinny tie. His elbow pads on his grandpa cardigan. *fans self* anyway i drew him and then ruined it by trying to paint it 😂

Currently working on:
- Blank game notebooks to print and include in ttrpg kits
- ttrpg kits to distribute to little free libraries
- zine for the Cairn jam on Itch
- homebrew fantasy content for a group that just finished Mothership
- homebrew scifi content for an Offworlders game
- custom tarot zine listing

SNK issue 2 is gonna be released on Fri! Aahhhhh finally

"I'm not going to buy anymore games for awhile..."

*trans rights continue to be trampled on*

itch.io/b/1308/ttrpgs-for-tran

*buys 493 games for a steal of $20*

(minimum is $5)

#Berlin we *urgently* need a lot of accommodation for #BIPoC arriving from #Ukraine today; dozens of people are here in the office in Wedding, waiting for accommodation
Please write to help@tubman.network
Mention where/how long you can offer housing, what languages you speak
If you can even house someone for even just 1 day that would be super helpful.
(Tubman Network is a Black-led mutual aid coalition of several migrant groups in Germany)

Wishlist of games I'd like to run:
1. Scifi/corporate/capitalist horror via Mothership 1e (though I'm not opposed to learning other scifi horror systems) - anthology-style or interconnected campaign
2. Scifi exploration campaign - less colonization and imperial, more fully automated space communism or Hainish - rule system up in air
3. Fantasy exploration campaign - less epic heroes ala D&D, more little guys scraping by a living - using Cairn or Knave

(let me know if you're interested)

I am bummed about Bandcamp.

I just interviewed and turned in my application for a study abroad scholarship to Okinawa.

Shimanchu nu Kwii #2 is almost ready to be released.

I am working on getting custom Tarot zines listed so I can make money.

I probably need to give in and look for a job soon. About three months ago 😅.

But I'd rather read indie ttrpgs, play and run games, and write homebrew adventures to potentially turn into zines after.

Eeee! The Okinawa Times has a feature on the magazine I'm volunteer editor om, Shimanchu nu Kwii, with plans for a second article next month. Wow wow wow. Plus we'll be releasing issue two this month too!!! Good things happening.

These folk are raising money to buy professional laser hair removal equipment to offer their services free of charge to those needing it in the UK. ^_^
