The fraught days end the same as the good days: the sun goes down, we go to bed. It's done with.
Life is short. All we can account for is how we treat each other.
A lot of people are missing the point of the twitter boycott. Ok heres how twitter works, they sell your data to advertisers for money, any interactions, good or bad are data they can sell.
All that harassment women get? That makes them money. All the call outs, all the toxic shit, all the fights with bad people? Makes them money.
They have a vested interest in creating engagement and nothing does that better than anger. They keep the bad people around because they know you will fight them. Thats data, they can sell that and then market to people just like you.
While they market to the people who want to abuse you too.
*not using twitter* is literally the only way to hurt them.
That time we talked about huffing donuts on the podcast with our friend from Stump Kitchen on Youtube. http://montrealsauce.com/2017/10/13/huffing-donuts/ https://mastodon.social/media/KQ8pAiCQEhMG70q8VA8
It's been a while and I've met so many rad people here. So I'll do an #introductions post again.
Yo. I am designated as a human being who enjoys creating. Whether that's writing, podcasting, video or motion graphics. I have diabetes and I've learned a ton about it. I am also dealing with depression. I'm not trying to be a downer, I just want to help people if I can. As a friend says, "talk to me and I'll talk back."
It's getting cold again. I should drag myself to the gym since I don't feel like riding my bike for exercise in -6° this morning. I got this. Yup. I'm going, right now. Mhmm. Uh...Damn it. Okay. Here I go.
Does anyone in Mastodon make 3D modeling?
I want to make friends.

It's #WorldMentalHealthDay and there's so much I want to say on the subject.
As a society we avoid things that make us uncomfortable. We evade discussions of terminal illness, death and even emotions as if we would somehow be afflicted by association. It sounds as ridiculous as stepping on a crack would break your mother's back. Talking about #emotions & #mentalhealth won't kill you. In fact, not talking could kill you or someone you love. Hold each other up, today, tomorrow, & each day.
Twitter needs a dark theme to match the mood there, wow. So much shouting.
Had a great time playing a text adventure game on the podcast. Thanks to everyone that listened. If you missed it, the episode will be up on Halloween. Or it will be available to patrons tomorrow. 😇
