why is every single person on the planet individually out to undermine and devalue black resistance oh wait
OH THIS IS SO COOL
So, a bit over 100 years ago the US government wanted a record of every type of fruit in the USA.
How do you do that before colour photography?
You have someone PAINT them. In detail.
A few years ago this collection was released free online and there was a twitter bot made to tweet them out.
They are beautiful and now I found a Mastodon bot that does the same!
anyway i’ve been encouraged to share my venmo after threads like these for doing labor outside of my work hours, so if you want to drop this queer some coin my venmo is @ juicebat

Like my posts, boost my posts, and then support my Patreon. You read the writing first, and then the money is given to me. It's not a paywall, more of a pay door that I have lead you to with my writing. Walk through the pay door.
Did you play in [average indie band] in [second class city] in  and have since moved on to become a primary school teacher or archbishop or something?
Go dig out your old bands CDs, rip them and put them up on Bandcamp for like $2. Someone out there, like me, who loved your music but lost/destroyed your CD years ago will be *very* happy to find you again.

Chocolate should not be a cheap everyday commodity. It should be a rare, occasional treat. And it should be expensive.
The only reason chocolate is cheap is due to exploitation of farmers and workers who've never even tasted the chocolate their work is vital to.
I'd rather pay more or simply miss out than continue to support modern day slavery.
Since so much of the West is on fire now, many people are in crisis mode. Found this great doc on how climage change crisises can help us simultaneously DISMANTLE colonial systems, and build something even better.
The sky out there is hazy and some news people are saying that air quality in Oregon is currently worst on planet. Several towns have been almost entirely wiped out, and evacuees in the region are seeking food, clothes, shelter.
This is NOT a time to waste breath talking about money. Landlords and Realtors everywhere should be more generous than they have ever been in their refunds.

self reminder. maybe for you too
I took my advice and texted someone I'm close to but have had a hard time communicating with since pandemic and she called me and we had a good conversation and was very thankful I texted her because she keeps forgetting or overthinking it

Hey Seattle friends, anyone want an HP Color LaserJet? It works okay but it's just taking up a lot of space and it's kind of a pain to deal with. I was going to donate it to a thrift shop, but Lifelong doesn't accept printers and Goodwill isn't accepting donations at all right now (at least not in Capitol Hill). It'll also come with some extra toner cartridges.
These days, I'm usually just working because let's be honest we just need better tools to build online communities. What we have now just isn't what we need to move forward.
If you're curious about how I'm going about it, check out https://www.patreon.com/Are0h.
I'm firm believer that we already have what we need to build better spaces. We just gotta put our heads down and do it.
Every bit helps me to keep going until we get there.
