Old as dirt, feeling twice as old again. Two stepkids, two dogs, one cat. Politics generally left, philosophically an anarchist. Non-religious, history of undiagnosed depression.

The latest page of Spun Off is finally live, getting Wakatonka's boner off the front page.
This crowd scene with cameos was a lot of fun to make - I actually enjoy that sort of thing - but boy was it a lot of work and I was very tired of it by the end. And I have another crowd scene for a different comic to finish this weekend (as well as challenge and commission work and cover art for a friend. Whew!). #webcomics #fediart

I just posted art on my .social account by mistake. Normally I post art on my account and then boost it here. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Nudity, nude crowd scene 

Something CA liberals do is they'll buy McDonald's (or other fast food) scrip and give that to panhandlers instead of cash. Imagine being such a cop that you personally do means-testing and still feel like a self-satisfied egalitarian.

What use is criminology if it does not help us commit crimes? Totally pointless

lengthy, activist media training advice 

Thomas Woodworth was the ICE cop who shoved his vehicles through a crowd of protesters regardless of their safety. Per "No More Concentration Camps" on fb: "THIS IS WHAT FASCISM LOOKS LIKE. No arrests were made, nor did they take any witness statements.
The cops clearly aren’t interested in pursuing this as a criminal matter. Woodworth could have killed the nonviolent protesters, but the cops are protecting their own here.

Call them and demand a proper investigation and stress that you believe peaceful protest is protected by the constitution and necessary for a healthy democracy.(...) (see response)"

I've had noise canceling headphones for a few weeks now and I'm still not used to how much babysitting Bluetooth on Windows 10 needs.

Finally, just because evil is human doesn't mean that you have to extend sympathy or kindness.

They have made their choices. Let them live with the consequences of them.

I'm frequently reminded of this one statistic that said that the proportion of your total income that you give to others steeply increases as your total yearly income decreases.

The rich (who, ofc, call themselves "generous" and "philanthropic") only help others the bare minimum they can get away with and still be able to posture as, y'know, having a fucking soul.

The poor, by and large, put themselves at great risk REGULARLY to help out others.

please read this, violence, protesting, antisemitism and racism 

@chartier Weird synchronicity because I just read a brief history of employee activism at Google, and spoiler alert, many of the activists have been retaliated against and left the company.

And if you don't have a lot of money, write a mail and say thank you. I received a lot of thank you in the last days and this makes me happy.
