Going to be livestreaming tomorrow 12 PM Pacific Time, talking about my William Gibson interview, our current status being near the active volcano, and my plan to get Keanu Reeves on the podcast next. 😀😂
"Millenial mental health crisis?" Yes, being paid 1 cent a word for articles or coding fake-traffic algos for VC pump-n-dumps whilst ubering to your barrista trad-gig that's losing hours - bad for self-worth & mental health. Juggling three shit jobs and still having to live in dad's closet cause a one-bedroom is 70% of your salary, and listening to "the avocado toast lecture" nightly does one's fucking head in.
Depression and madness is a normal response to being deeply fucked.

The William Gibson podcast will be coming in the near future, once I get to my good machine. Will toot the actual podcast when it's out.
I just interviewed William Gibson in Vancouver. The future may be unevenly distributed, but Neuromancer's author has fenced some atemporal cyberpunk-continuum to Silver Spook. (Still mindfucked that he agreed tbh)
Also, I believe I may have the only recording of Gibson saying, "Mother fucker", and with full 70's-Ramones-punk attitude, also.
Neofeud Anthology up on Itch!

The volcanic eruption near our home is continuing, we had a fairly large earthquake, but we are ok.
On the plus side, lava zones prevent real estate speculation. No giant empty towers, no exorbitant apartment prices. Your house may burn down, but it is just a house -- not a capitalistic investment vehicle to prop up a broken, extractive, neofeudal economy. It's a trade off.
As we native Hawaiians say, "You learn to respect and live with Madame Pele (volcano goddess), or you won't last long."
May Motherfucking Day. Support your local strike, quit your corporate job that's eating your soul and lives of thousands of vulnerable people, work for yourself, co-op-ify, compensate your people fairly, bring people to Mastodon. When they come to break your wrists, ban you from the internet, threaten your future your career, your family, just remember there will be no future for anyone soon.

-50+ million Americans still with toxic drinking water, sewers overflowing everywhere, as infrastructure falls apart
-Schools, education, non-manipulated information itself collapsing as disinfo multiplies
-Private police outnumber public, militarization of law enforcement
-Healthcare costs $30,000+ for family of 4 (deductible included) despite plummeting health
Neofeud was not joking, sadly.
