if your game is about people getting body augmentations and it doesn't have any queer people in it, i'm just calling it cishumanism

🎵 Look at this shit,
doesn't it suck?
Wouldn't you say
that my shit's all fucked up?🎵

i think i'm done with Metal Gear Solid V. the story did not end in a satisfying way for many reasons, though i'm not sorry i played it. i credit Venom Snake and his merry band of psychotic war criminals for helping keep me sane these past few months.

i tried to get back into Elite: Dangerous and Warframe tonight but the amount i'm going to have to relearn in both games just to regain basic competency is more work than i feel like putting in right now.

one more round of Joust before bed.

So This DevTerm from Clockwork Pi appears to be everything I could have wanted out of a #cybredeck when I was 14.

Design inspired by the Tandy 102, but slightly smaller. Screen the same basic aspect ratio as the HP 200 LX, but with modern connectivity and USB.

It'll run DOSBox, it'll run DVTM and all the various terminal apps I need.

The screen ain't sunlight readable, like my Omnibook, but ... I wonder what the bat life is like.

Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day in which we remember those of us who were killed this year. Normally, I would share a list of vigils and names, but for your own safety, I would suggest a private vigil, and a private moment.

If you are transgender, or know someone who is, please remember them. Take a moment out of today, to read these names, to know who they were, so they're not forgotten tomorrow.

self-medication 

i haven't been drinking that much lately, but when i do engage with That Devil Booze i'm having a hard time reaching that comfortable, euphoric head-swimmy drunk that i like and i either undershoot and get an upset stomach upset or overshoot and wind up praying for death. maybe i'm just done with rum for a while.

also, cbd gummies don't hit at all anymore, but really it was only that first time i found a good dose.

why can't i manipulate my brain chemistry with dip switches?

You know Data from Star Trek? And he 'wants' to become more human and becomes more human as the series goes on ...

Why?

I'm pretty sure that if he had some fantastic computery super-brain he'd realise he had nothing to gain from becoming more human.

i did a BUNCH of stuff tonight that had NOTHING to do with getting tomorrow night's show together.

i win at procrastination by DOUBLE PROCRASTINATING.

it was not so much a conscious choice but yes, here we are

much like Sisyphus endlessly rolling his rock up a hill in Hades, i am forever doomed to, once every few years, attempt yet another Disgaea playthrough because the temptation of having a tiny army of demons in my command all named after food items is far too great for me to resist.

i'm also a lot like that Jesus fella in that i'd love to be dead in a cave for three days at a stretch.

uspol; a modest proposal 

the senate is horribly broken. lets make some changes.

- 2 year term limit.
- must live in the same barracks with the other senators while serving.
- fully cut off from personal finances. they get an EBT card from their home state and that's it.
- if they are caught with lobbyists they will be tried and summarily publicly executed. the lobbyist too. all nets, all channels.

--

look, if they don't spend at least one day a week having a fucking HARD cry about how much they hate their job, WE ARE DOING IT WRONG. THEY ARE NOT SUFFERING ENOUGH.

how could i possibly expect someone who lives a life entirely unlike mine to be fit to manage the laws i live by?

they've never had to pick between tire repairs and groceries, and that's a goddamn shame.

us pol + Hamilton reference the world turned upside down 

After 4 yrs of fighting a young CNN correspondent stands on a parapet. & just like that it’s over. we tend to our wounded we count our dead. we negotiate the terms of surrender. I see Joe Biden smile. we escort them out of The White House, they stagger home single file. 10s of thousands of ppl flood New York streets there are screams & church bells ringing. And as our fallen foes demand recounts they hear the drinking song we all singing!

uspol take 

In the days to come, offer this man no respect. He is a bully, a pathetic pile of excuses and bluster with nothing of substance beneath him. There is nothing to honor there. But fascists are dangerous, so when you make of him a laughingstock be sure to do mercilessly.

Nothing cool, nothing positive, nothing that paints him with any kind of honor or redeeming qualities. A squalling manchild whom even Nixon would sneer at and steal candy from.

Also, sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc, motherfucker.

go outside, if you can.

take a deep breath (if you're properly distanced, of course). take several. find your center.

we have four years in which to breathe freer.

rest now, smile now, celebrate now and know that the work is not done.

gather your strength and tell people you love them. hail your comrades.

it's a good day.

Praise Gritty. But srsly thank you Native American folk of the Navajo nation who apparently saved Arizona and thus the rest of us.
