On Tumblr, Algorithmic Feeds, and the Gentrification of a Website

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

tumblr is the only corporate social im willing to use at this point, purely because of how vastly different it is from its contemporaries, structurally and culturally, but they're very clearly doing something that is quickly turning me away. for lack of less sensitive term, staff is practically gentrifying the platform. (forcing shit from other socials that tumblrs lack of were the only reason i s... » Continue Reading

on vinland saga (its banger OPs and relativity to berserk)

Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities

(i cant find anywhere to fit this in the actual post body i cannot believe how hard every vinland saga opening has banged visually and music-wise. survive said the prophet going to heaven for these compositions and every animator who worked on them deserves a pay raise and union protections) as far as the series goes, it is classic seinen shit in the best way ever. this, to me, genuinely makes up ... » Continue Reading

im so fucking close to a way to completely get off spotify (read if you also want off spotify)

Category: Music

(i wrote almost all of this out last night and then it got deleted when i accidentally left the page) so obviously we all know spotify Fucking sucks but theyre really good at anchoring you to it through predatory anti-customer practices. SO obviously since i have hundreds of several hour long playlists its not very easy for me to just hop off! so ive been cooking up a big plan... i originally had ... » Continue Reading

A rant about Safe Spaces (CW for Christianity)

Category: News and Politics

I'm in an ‘Alabama Furries’ group chat. Obviously, I'm not expecting some particularly inclusive administration here, to preface. A Christian joins and says (very loudly and invasively, out of nowhere) that we should all say a prayer to God. A few people muse “oh the prayer guy is back.” An admin remarks “It wouldn't be the south without a prayer dude.” I laugh and agree, though begrudgingly comme... » Continue Reading

Longer Tables: A potential transphobe changed their mind after learning!

Category: Religion and Philosophy

Cadence: A transphobe was bitching in general chat about ‘the woke mob pretending there's not only two genders’ and I left an explanation of the reasons they are wrong, which led to this beautiful and wholesome exchange with someone I've never met before! (Doon was not the transphobe in question, that was Spider Byte!) Seriously, longer tables, everyone! » Continue Reading

The Night Grows Longer

Category: Writing and Poetry

Every year, the night grows longer. We all can feel the consequences. It means the world to some, Yet to others, is nothing more than another line on the teleprompter. “Now, its four hundred thirty-eight.” They read it like the daily weather. As if there's no meaning. Something immutable; an aspect of the world to simply let marinate. But I have seen the ones who care. Ecologists and anybodies. Al... » Continue Reading

list of hysterical quotes from tabletop campaign tonight

Category: Friends

“ He doesn't have rabies, dumbass, it's just being-swedish disorder ” - Me, in reference to what is presumably a zombie-like entity. “ Meth daddy ain't raise no bitch! ” L, after cutting open their hand with their own attack twice. Also, their character's father was joked to have been a meth addict. “ Just for good measure, staple his cock .” F, in reference to a person I just killed and stripped ... » Continue Reading

The Meaning of 'Red Letter Day', And the Primal Terror of "This Too Shall Pass"

Category: Religion and Philosophy

you know how people say "this too shall pass"? that phrase has always been existentially terrifying to me. it evokes a sense that any suffering i experience in the present moment is objectively meaningless as within a matter of a few hours i may be in a different mood, a different person, and perhaps never even remember that pain. it is about that existential terror. the dread of the "grand scheme... » Continue Reading

Why I Write: Why I Pirate

Category: Books and Stories

I am a writer because I love to write. I love to create worlds and express them and I think that the world deserves to be able to see them too. While I certainly do not have the right to impose that philosophy upon other writers, I also don't have the money to afford their books. Would they truly prefer I and others not read it at all than read it pirated? I think not, at least when it comes to sm... » Continue Reading

The only "Web 3.0" you really need

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

NFTs, are a scam. NTFs, are a fad. NFTs are the building blocks for the greatest leap in the degradation of the modern internet. NFTs are simultaneously useless and dangerous. The initial concept of Web 3, of decentralization, was a noble one. Matrix and Mastadon have already proven the concept's worth. But this? NFTs and Blockchains? This is spitting in the face of the userbase of and the enginee... » Continue Reading
