Day 5: blade

Happy with most of these, though they're pretty easy to draw. However I messed up my timing for 3 and 4

Day 4: Radio

Not too happy with these. Last one isn't bad for 5 secs

Please tell me someone else out there has created the Muscle Barrel on F-Zero GX

If you have a screenshot pls send - this custom ship caused much hilarity when we first created it 😂

Aside from pulling an "Eternal Summer of the Spotless Mind", does anyone have any suggestions for replaying Outer Wilds?

I really loved this game, but it is truly sad to think that once I've learned everything that the game is effectively dead. I guess filling out your log book is a way to measure progress, but I'm interested to know if anyone has a suggested "attitude" toward replaying it?

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

Well I haven't posted a decent update for far too long. @alice_swaggen and I have fully populated the bed after fending off some wildlife attacks. The tomatillos are looking good and the kabocha is growing nicely. @GwenfarsGarden's suggestion of sticks as a defensive measure has worked wonderfully!

Welp, thanks to a combination of tree surgeons visiting the house after, rather than before, the establisment of my raised bed, foxes and/or cats, and being away from the house to do recording for the album, approximately 50% of my raised bed has been obliterated.

Anyone else watching on in horror as Condé Nast opens fire on it's own feet and slowly sends the youtube channel down the toilet? 🙈

can we declare "real name" policies on social media to be an unmitigated disaster and an utter failure at every possible level from start to finish yet

Shout-out to the folks who keep your Mastodon servers up and running.

Hey @kawaiipunk,

Just wanted to let you know that I don't think I'm the guy for this job. I have a fairly high day rate and am not economically in the position to do a lot of favours for people right now.

Basically you have my blessing to take this job; and to ask for my help if you get stuck on anything 👍

The House of Lords.

How about, from now on, Lords are appointed by qualified #sortition? I.e. if you get 10 people to support you, you can put your name in a lottery and every time a Lord quits/dies a new name is randomly picked to replace them.

We would then have a second house which is way more democratic/representative and can think longer than the political term...

We can also rename it to the House of Citizens or something 😆
