#INTRODUCTIONS HELLO, my name is Iris Jay and I've been posting comics online for a little over a decade now. I'm a full-time freelance cartoonist and illustrator, but in my free time I also enjoy cooking, reading and thrift store diving.

My old supernatural religious webcomic that folks still like: http://epiphany.irisjay.net
Things born of a future that we had in the past are smoke in a closed room, and the later iterations of it are speculative. The interplay of the real and unreal is already apparent in things like fashwave. Opposing forces need to be mustered and deployed.
There is not only an advantage and initiative in steering genres like cyberpunk into a more progressive tack, but a moral responsibility to be custodians of these aesthetics and media vectors, and to prevent them from being weaponized by malicious forces.
It is through the seizure and utilization of retro imagery and attractive nostalgia that we may not only communicate memetically, but deny our enemies refuge within them.
i seriously don't give a shit about your grandmother or how you grew up in her log cabin and eventually want to build your own log cabin so your grandkids can turn into boring food bloggers themselves someday, just tell me how to make gnocchi okay
is there a firefox plugin that removes the irritating novel-length introductory essays from the top of every single recipe i look up online
*turns chair around to sit on it cool youth-pastor style*
*adjusts laboratory goggles to be at a jaunty angle*

Looks like silence is now copyrighted.
So. Call your MEP or e-mail them, now. The vote in the commission is June 20th. We only need to flip one vote:
Quick after-party selfie bc I looked HOT tonite
Cyberpunk narratives that paint body-modification as a negative thing because of "loss of humanity", are subtly transphobic because they associate essence with the physical body. That to modify the body is to negatively modify the mind.
It also presumes that to become less human is to also become less empathetic, whereas a person should be allowed to be non-human, or maybe even not a "person", without losing empathy and sapience.
Monsterpit currently has three admins, but only a lone demon to manage the actual server and software.
The week after Monday, I’m likely being switched to an eleven-hour workday and will only be able to maintain Monsterpit sporadically.
I am in need of someone who can take over admin and server side maintenance of both our Mastodon and Nextcloud instance.
I'm moving soon! I'm in the Seattle area and would be interested in splitting a 2- or 3-bedroom location if anyone else would be interested.

ANYWAYS HEY, FOOTNOTE ON “BONECHARM CRAFTING”: idk if it counts as “crafting” if the big bonecharms you craft do the exact same things as the little ones you feed into them. That’s not really “crafting”, that’s just boosting the number of charms you can carry at once— unless you count CORRUPTED charms, which are just “does the same shit as the charms you feed it, EXCEPT there’s a new proviso that makes it worse to use”. It just feels like a weirdly incomplete idea

Also I was thumping around upstairs in the totally deserted (modern day) mansion and suddenly, from behind me where there was only a blocked door, an Enemy Aware lightning icon pinged at the same time a ghostly voice right behind my head whispered “w h a t a r e y o u d o i n g h e r e” which congrats, devs, that scared the daylights out of me for a sec
