Another great joke ruined by that “Nobody:” bullshit.

I'm revisiting The Sea Will Claim Everything starting today because it's the tenth anniversary of its release. Or maybe that's the day after tomorrow, Wikipedia can't be sure. If you haven't played it, please check it out! It's ten bucks on Steam and it's super fun and good.

homophobia, important 

Please keep an eye out for people trying to brand monkeypox as a "gay disease", explicit or otherwise, and push back hard and early!

I've already started seeing the same kind of "the damn gays fucking everywhere" rhetoric that also popped up during the first years of the AIDS epidemic in the US. That rhetoric was directly responsible for (tens of?) thousands of deaths.

We absolutely *cannot* afford to let homophobes gain control over the public narrative around monkeypox, and let them use it to once again kill queer folks by denying them crucially important healthcare. :boosts_ok_gay:

I love when someone uses a trending topic on Twitter as proof that the political tide has finally turned in their favor and that the other side is finally going to get what they have coming.

I beat Elden Ring! I got the crappy ending because I didn’t realize I was making a choice but oh man, that was three solid months!!!!!!

Non-corporate interview, body horror 

I just typed the sentence, "The first parturition is when you colonize the baby with bugs."

I mean, I guess it's less horrifying in context.

Corporate interviews: It's lovely that Jeans Day has a charitable donation aspect to it, but it's not that exciting, lady, calm down -- I'm working in my pajamas right now and I don't have to pretend that I'm fulfilled by a corporate job.

I love transcribing corporate interviews; it’s all grey people insisting that their jobs are important and their lives are meaningful. Big shoutout to the poor 27 year old version of me who worked for Ernst and Young for some reason and wanted to die. It gets better, buddy. There’s a lot more to the world than suburban heterosexuals in business casual.

I dunno, I guess for now I’m just going to do both heroin and methadone because I meet so many great contacts while doing heroin that it would absolutely hurt my career if I quit, but if the deal goes through I absolutely pinkie swear I will quit heroin and just use methadone because look, I know there are so many problems with heroin but they definitely won’t get fixed if Elon is in charge of it.

I can’t believe Activision charts their characters on a grid to make diversity! Art at that level should be a deep expression of the soul! It should never be made to fit a demographic or altered for a focus group!

Congratulations to Ordina, Liturgical Town for being just the absolute worst videogame level ever made!

Oh thank God, I’ve finally stumbled on the gay porn instances.

Man, picking my Mastodon instance is in no way like picking a cafeteria table in high school. This is so much of a lower-stress form of social media than Twitter was.

I don’t think I like Mastodon.

Humanity’s greatest stain 

I hope the Russians let me finish my book before they kill Elon Musk. I’m going to need at least six months. The day before I release it would actually be ideal, that would be the most maximally disrespectful.
