dreams, weird animals
Few days ago I dreamed of a huge, long and scaleless fish living in a deep well. It looked really disturbing (I pulled it out of the well in my arms too). Why does my brain make these weird, misshapen animals, I thought?
Today I stumbled over a picture of an amphiuma, which is somehow EXACTLY THAT GODDAMN FISH. Only smaller, thanks fuck. Still pretty huge for something that weird. WHAT THE FUCK, brain. WHY.
Everytime some nimrod grandly pronounces that people should not feel THIS emotion about something, or feel THAT one, or not feel emotions about it AT ALL, I lose a bit of will to live. 😒
No advice at all, just: of course! With your willpower you can (and must!) change your emotions! GRIT! PERSEVERANCE! NYARGH!
online shopping, craft supplies (-)
why do online yarn shops in this country have so terrible filtering? And I mean truly terrible.
Just "knitting yarn", then a list of brands.
Two folders, "imported" and "local", then a list of brands.
Sidebar filter that has skein weight, length, material type, but NO YARN WEIGHT.
Yes Karen, I am eager to click through all your goddamn folders to find which of these arcanely named yarns would be good for my project.
PSA: If you're doing research but don't have access to a university library, you should definitely *not* use a website to pirate a large amount of journal articles. That would be illegal and wrong. I post this link so you can bear witness to this unlawful activity. https://mg.scihub.ltd/
This is hilarious!
The pizza joint I went to framed a hole in the wall in the men’s washroom and called it “Fragile Masculinity”
I spent some time on DW tonight but my energy for serious posting and interraction is all gone now. Have you ever seen a gaggle of oppossums munching banana slices? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRIVTEBaLkA

I liked it! It's almost as (or more) mined for nostalgia as TRS, but it has a much easier time with it, being an original TV show. There is a bit of (imho) filler, but it's manageable.
Pedro Pascal's acting with a bucket on his head is A+++. The Child is, obviously, a delight, and so is Kara.
Highlight: almost all of the important characters are non-white.
Lowlight: whatever the fuck that prison break episode was.
also fun: the HTTP error code 418, "I'm a teapot" (as opposed to a coffee maker). it was a joke that went too far, people fell in love with it, and when threatened with removal, fought to keep it. 418 is still an official HTTP error code.
People seem to think that opposition to 'cancel culture' is about easy forgiveness or not holding people accountable at all, and it isn't.
It's about opposition to the way 'made a bad post' becomes 'is completely worthless and everything they ever made is tainted by their worthlessness and if you reblog their stuff you are now tainted too and everyone who reblogs your stuff is tainted and everone who reblogs people who reblog your stuff is tainted, etc.
That's what is so destructive.
