Re: Telling Lies

I am tickled by the fact that Reed Diamond plays a part in this. He's so properly creepy in Agents of SHIELD (hands down my favorite show lol) and I'm always excited to see him in things.

I know I'm late to the game but i just played through Her Story and enjoyed it very much. Perfect length for my attn span--about 2hrs to figure things out but spent an extra half hour just following other crumb trails just to get a better picture. The "spiritual" sequel Telling Lies looks great too but for $20 it's outta my game/time price range.

True, but you cannot even FATHOM all the ideas/products/processes/community leadership you've lost out on from the people you've driven out.

You're focusing on a couple constellations at the expense of the Milky Way

is anyone who follows me able to translate English to Amharic for a tenant organizing poster? not a large corpus, just 10 sentences or so

the big secret on how to become an expert in your field:

fuck up
figure out why and how you fucked up
learn how to recover from fucking up in that specific way
repeat until you are an expert in your field

a lot of schooling tries to skip steps 1 and 2 but they are very important

The team that made Beak, Feather, & Bone is making 6 little, weird, beautiful TTRPGs you get once a month digitally, and then altogether as a boxed set:

I am putting a call out to the fediverse for people who rely on screen readers to use computers to critique Mixxx's accessibility. Input from people who are musicians would be especially appreciated. I want to consider your perspectives as we are planning how to rewrite Mixxx's GUI with QML. Please boost.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me.

You can see some of their work here

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

"im proud" spends rest of toot complaining, haha whoops. Gotta practice taking compliments even from myself

I'm proud of myself today for transcribing about a minute of Spanish audio as a precursor to my actual homework.... It took me over an hour and i still have 2.5 more minutes to do. 😭 I'm gonna be wrangling my attention span the whole rest of the week.

Somehow got myself involved organizing the first issue of an Okinawan diaspora art/literary magazine???? I'm greatly pleased! (this is an understatement). i'm mostly worried about logistics of printing and accessibility with digital versions. and we're already talking about how we could possibly pay contributors, which is a relief, though it'll probably be a tiny amount to start.

Oh and i want to actually submit something for the first issue too, so you know, this'll totally be pain-free... <_<

Things autism research could be about:

- How does autism radar work?
- Do we have an easier time communucating with other autistics because our ways of communication are similar, or because we've all had to learn to accomodate the people we're talking to?
- What can be done to prevent and treat autistic burnout?
- What even *is* autistic burnout exactly?
- What effects does masking have on your mental health?
- What autistic traits are actually traits of autism, and which ones are trauma responses?
- How is a non-traumatized autistic brain work?
- How can we better accomodate autistic people?

What autism research is about:
- How do we make the autistic people stop existing?

What are platforms/avenues for a radical/leftist theatre artist? I'm a playwright and actor interested in writing about rad things and helping develop rad theatre (I fucks with staged readings).

hey fedi, is there a bandcamp for writing? like a place to find indie short stories online? I'm specifically looking for sci-fi stuff.

I "accosted" a Spanish speaker in a Bitsy discord to practice Spanish and also to ask if i can see more of their art. Glad I can put myself oit there. But my God, is the anxiety worth the short spurts of extroversion??? Why do i do this to myself?
