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!!!
I got home from work... Stormycat was snoozing and curled up on the couch in her cat-nest instead of getting up as soon as I get home for foods, so I sat down next to her and petted her and she was all rolling and purring and nuzzling and stuff...
... and I dozed off...
I am apparently tired and kitty is comfy.
If you have the moolah to spend on a new console, spend it on a game on itch.io instead. Every game that allows payment lets you pay more than asking price. Heck, spread it out over several games if you want.
Giving $100 or so to a small dev for their $15 game is so much more rewarding than a hunk of plastic filled with rare earth conflict metals and shitty labour practices.
In case I'm not the last one to hear about this, there's an online game expo this Saturday about games made by people of colour.
The schedule looks interesting, there's already a number of talks I'm thinking of attending. Lots of short talks too, which is a plus in my view, so you can quickly get an overview of a subject.
I left my phone at work!
I keep it auto-locked after ten minutes, and any password stuff on there is behind a separate and more complicated lock, so I'm not really worried about anyone casually getting into stuff on it (like weirdo smut doodles that I do not at all want to explain to my normie-het tiny-town coworkers), but...
... it's my phone... and it needs me...
Nothing I can do about it now, and I'll get it tomorrow when I get there... I just... I don't just leave my phone places... I got distracted at the last minute, and forgot to grab it... I know that's what happened...
Home from work... kitty is fed... laundry is running...
Time to waste away yet another evening in escapism gaming, because I'm am out of spuns and have to face outside again, tomorrow.
They cut down some trees in the apartment area, today (dead ones, I assume/hope... I know at least 1 was definitely dead and had no leaves at all, this year), and piled up all the logs in the last parking space... as in, I had to move a log pile in the dark when I pulled in, so I could have a place to park.
I want to live somewhere else... but no matter where we move to, it'll still be in this stupid moron-run country, and it'll have it's own problems...
Currently, there is a live (online and distanced) reading of ThePrincessBride from the original cast going on (that are still alive, of course). They are taking donations as admission for the event... the donations going to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin...
I donated... because there is very little that would not give to hear and see Mandy Patinkin demand that he wants his father back.
The video and audio is not the best, but it is still very much soothing my heart.
I follow one account on birbsite that posts interesting art and photos, and whom chirps entirely in an arabic text... I think. I am honestly not sure because I can't read it, and I apologize if I'm wrong.
Today, my feed is entirely full of reposts in this text... like every other post, easily.
On the one hand, I have a strong feeling they got hacked and are bot-posting...
On the other, my feed hasn't looked this pretty in years, and I am not drowning in the daily sea of horrific images of what IdjitOrange or his legion of morons are corrupting today... it's a beautiful appearing script language.
friendly reminder that 3DS games are ridiculously expensive but thankfully it's ridiculously easy to hack a 3DS and pirate like every game
so easy i was able to do it
here's a guide https://3ds.hacks.guide/
It's amazing when the past is unusually poignant...
Link to a metal as heck cat
I'm intentionally breaking up this link into two pieces, because the link will lead to birbsite (no, that's not why), and will show pictures of cat that will look freakishly nightmarish to some folks (that's why).
The cat is a hairless sphinx that has needed to have both of it's eyes removed due to disease... there are no scars or anything, just no eyes and no fur to cover up the eye sockets. The cat is fine, healthy and very loved by it's owners.
He (Jazzypurrs) looks like a skeletal demon, and it is glorious.
I'm someone that is fascinated by oddities, and to me, this little guy is amazing and I wanted to share.
"Wang chung", in Chinese, translates to "yellow bell", which is structurally adjective-noun.
"Everybody wang chung, tonight", then, diagrams as personal noun-adjective-noun-noun, which is not a sentence, nor does "everybody yellow bell, tonight" make any sense...
"Wang Chung" is also the band's name, so it could be taken as a personal noun instead of adjective-noun, but then the sentence diagrams out to personal noun-personal noun-noun... and that doesn't work either, and makes even less contextual sense.
So, it must be concluded that the sentence has to follow the previous sentence pattern of personal noun-verb-noun-noun ("everybody have fun, tonight"), meaning "wang" in this context is a verb.
Thus, 'wanging chung' is the correct active tense, and not 'wang chunging' or even less correct, 'chunging wang'.
Sqveaky weirdo roo-thing!
