I'm so stoked to have Yannick in charge of artistic stuff at work for many reasons. This is only one of them.

My guess for the scientific accuracy and validity of this test is somewhere in the neighborhood of "not very", but the results are interesting none the less. https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/OSRI/?results=63,75

However my gender exploration thing shakes out, one thing is certain: I am all on in clear nail polish (keeps me from gnawing on my fingernails), and wearing leggings (so comfy!)

Can I go ANYWHERE without being assaulted by Morrissey’s atonal warble?! I’m at a fucking TARGET.
If you are losing your home because of this shutdown, don't hesitate to ask for help.
If you hear anyone asking for help, go to their landlord with some friends to tell them that there will be hell to pay if they evict anyone.
All we have is each other, but that's still a lot. https://twitter.com/NPR/status/1083927043824340992
What Day 20 of the Government Shutdown Looks Like
Overall, about 420,000 government employees are working under the promise they will be paid retroactively, with nearly another 350,000 on furlough at home. This does not account for the hundreds of thousands of contractors who will never see this missing pay. This includes the janitorial, food service, information tech

Feeling self-conscious waiting for this show to begin, not because of presenting somewhat gender non-confirming but because the average age of the room is trending towards 50. But that happens when you’re seeing a band whose biggest hit came out in 1993.
Instance block, related to that rape one Show more
While you're at it, do yourself a favour and block neckbeard.xyz, because those vermin seem to be in on it too.
Self-care has origins in black feminism and queer support groups as a practical way to keep fighting in spite of violence and demands for community, family, and church labor.

Opinions About Audio Mastering Show more
That's a particularly egregious example, but there's stuff like the first couple B-52's albums, the entire Oingo Boingo discography, and probably bands you care about that put out albums before the age of CD where the current CD and digital releases are shitty, early CD masters that sound _terrible_.

It boggles my mind how many CD releases of old albums, and the digital releases pulled from them, sound like hot garbage and are still in print.
I mean, shit, you can still buy the 1987 CD master of DEVO's "Freedom of Choice," despite it getting a good sounding remaster in 2009. The '87 master is _shit_. It has almost no goddamned bass on it, which is a huge problem as it's supposed to sound like a fucking R&B album made with synthesizers!!!
