Today I was out walking
when I had a brief flash
and saw the people I was passing
as collections of cells gathered together into muscles
pulling against the bones that they grew for some cells to live inside
slithering against each other like a bucket of live eels

And it was kind of beautiful.

Is it time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.

Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.

I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.

Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.

I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.

You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.

Goddamnit Evernote. You spent the last couple years fucking up your apps by rebuilding them in fucking Electron and adding a bunch of bullshit that looks pretty but gets in the way of actually using them for their core uses. And you STILL have absolutely no facilities for dealing with sync conflicts beyond “now you have two copies of this note, have fun figuring out what changed!”.

Just when did I become someone who thinks "a serious, solemn history of an offshoot of the Temple of Satan" is "casual reading on my day off" anyway

I spent today taking a sad kitty with a bumpy nose to the vet. Now I am rewarding myself for successfully not absorbing her immense stress and fear during this by having cake and a cookie.

I think this may be the most gracious “It’s not FOR you” passage I have ever encountered.

(Michael Aquino, “The Temple Of Set”.)

In the VERY unlikely event of me ever becoming a real estate developer, I want to name a suburb’s streets after Cats.

No. Not breeds of cats. CATS. “I live on the corner of Rumpleteazer and Jennyanydots” cats.

If there is a railway nearby I think it is imperative that it NOT intersect or run along Skimbleshanks, just to annoy anyone who takes the trouble to chase down the reference.

holy crap Wacom support is actually asking for the applescript that stopped working, I guess they actually *do* want to continue supporting that interface? That's a nice surprise.

Rando on Discord: are you good at illustrator

Me: It's been my main medium for 20+ years. Probably.

Me: If you're about to ask me to do your homework, you're in luck - I'm currently having a 90% off sale on my normal rate of $10k/h.

(because it almost always IS "please do my homework" in my experience)

Someday I am going to end up in an interesting conversation with someone who notices that I always sign for credit/debit stuff with a sigil invoking Mercury.

MH, I know a lot of you are struggling lately 

So @zebratron2084 and I just flirted via the exchange of some Sifl and Olly references and I have never felt more of a member of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Generation than i do at this moment.

Ninety bucks for a set of all four of my Arch-Angel Dragonsonas as scarves. Yeah, not too bad, I'm going for it - prints would be more intensely colorful, but these are a lot easier to casually hang up when I want to enhance the Magicalness of my space, plus they will also work real well as clothing accents.

“Fresh Hell” would be a great name for a record label. Perhaps it already is, I didn’t check.

muttering about Heinlein's Heinleiniest book ever, again 

Damn, the sketch layers in these old Absinthe files are set up so awkwardly. I don't miss my old "sketch on paper, finish in Illustrator" process at ALL.

today's unexpected email interaction: educating technical support at Wacom upon the difference between "an API that lets you send NSEvents to the driver" and "AppleScript"
