It's been a while since I did an introduction post. (CW for length)
I'm Julie. The cartoon Roo what goes SQVEAK!
I play a ton of videogames and pinball, and I've had a love of them since the 70s... like, arcades were my happy place when I was growing up, so it's kind of obsession-levels...
I also have an obsessive love of cartoons, and that includes a lot of the really corny ones... old HannaBarbara goofy characters, FleischerStudios rubber-limbed black and white 'toons... love that stuff.
I also love weird. Bizzare. Freaky... but still fun.
I draw as a hobby. Sometimes I draw things for others, but it's not my profession, I don't take commissions, and my output is very linked to my depression, which I have a lot of... so a lot of my doodles come from my emotional high points and hedonistic places.
I ramble a lot about introspection and observation. I talk through my depressions, repressions, and agressions. Sometimes it's theraputic... sometimes it's spirally.
I draw naughty things... cartoony weird things... alt-gender things... inflation things... chompy Pac things... furry things... video game character things... anything I doodle like that is behind content warnings, and unless I'm following you, it won't show up in your timeline.
If that's an issue, I get that, but I'm definitely a weirdo. This is who I am and what I do, so it's what I'm gonna keep doing.
Do you have gender?
It's ok. Many of us either do or did at one time. It's a somewhat common thing, really.
Did you know that you do not need to keep your current gender if it's not working well for you?
You can have more gender... less gender... no gender... all the...
... well, no, you can't have all the gender. I mean, save some gender for others that may want some...
Point is, you get to choose how much and what type(s) of gender you want, and you get to choose how you want to express it.
Yes! You do!! Yes, you!!!
Stopped in Cedarburg on the way home for some walking around... but that got cut short due to conservative religious nuts holding IdjitOrange signs pro-life protesting outside of the Penzey's storefront...
... got angry, so we left...
Now having a bier at an outdoor bier garden before the next stop.
Why am I awake at 8am, you ask...
... yes that was a few hours ago, but the point still stands...
A friend of Raccoon's just opened up a non-profit art supply/arts & crafts space in Sheboygan (a bit north of Milwaukee, after many farm fields), and we went to support and check the place out.
medical debt and a gofundme for a broke queer indigenous writer
a few people have expressed their desire to help me out with a ridiculous medical bill, asking if i would set up a gofundme so i did
please, if you are in a tight spot yourself, take care of you first. this is like, the most absurd time possible for debt collectors to come knocking for me but i suppose thats why they did it. i've made my first payment today and another isn't due until july 18th.
if you can and want to help, thank you! let me know if there's anything i can do in return for you. if you can't, that's totally cool. this is not an emergency need, i'm just broke and its gonna suck paying this off lol (boosts are ok)
I have tried hard to stop preordering and buying games on release, over the years. They will always drop in price, later... and it's not like I don't have a ton of games to play already.
... I mean, unless the games are by Nintendo, who NEVER drop their price points even years after, by more than 5$... that just seems crazy.
I found the charging cable for my audio player over the weekend... about 50 gigs worth of albums... and a dead battery that I can't easily replace because it's an old and discontinued model.
I will try to order one, but that's an if.
But, I now have the cable, so I can use it plugged in!
My playlist is still active, and apparently I had a LOT of TomWaits qveue'd up the last time I used it.
... I like TomWaits, but it is absolutely not the right apocalyptic time to be listening to lyrics like, "The one thing they say about man-kind is there's nothing kind about man..."
That's... not helpful as a distraction, right now... let's switch to some INXS and some Extreme...
... Devil Inside, followed by Decadent Dance...
... le sigh...
I started playing Shipbreaker last night, and I'm very much enjoying it, and will likely stream some of it this week.
The world its set in is very unethical corporate dystopia, and you literally have to purchase your oxygen and rent your tools and spacesuit... all of which you can eventually purchase your way out of, but it creates limitations and timers that you need to adapt to, and although annoying at first, it's organic progression through the game world, and I appreciate that.
This Independence Day, remember the native people who have suffered but preserved and survived for all these years despite our government's best efforts:
Donate to the Navajo Nation Covid-19 relief fund (both money and supplies, like homemade cloth masks!):
Support native owned businesses:
Donate to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund:
Don't just decry America, help support and bring about its future

If I get arrested for assault tonight, then I am sorry.
I am a little drunk.
The adult bastard who touched and assaulted my underage godkid, years ago, just sat down a table away from me... and likely does not recognize me...
I will do nothing if he starts nothing...
... but I should stop drinking now.
Sqveaky weirdo roo-thing!
