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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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 dragon.style. 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.

Damn all my energy sure has gone into digesting this sandwich and begniets. I was gonna sit here at the cafe working but I think instead I am just gonna go find a sunny spot to bask in Jackson Square or the Moonwalk or something.

It just has to get Biden’s signature now.

oh yeah I should probably remove Twitter from the contact info on my website now that I nuked my account, shouldn't I. Done.

I finally got around to mixing what I dubbed a "Vic & Nat'ly" and I sure do regret every decision that lead me to this place.

Take a bottle of orange Big Shot. Pour some of it into a cup you caught at a Mardi Gras parade. Add the cheapest sparkling wine you could find in the gas station drink racks next to the Big Shot. "Enjoy".

(This is basically "gas station mimosa" and you should never do this, I am never making one of these again unless I am very desperate to become drunk, which is pretty unlikely for me given how occasional a drinker I am.)

Oh wait shit it is not actually part of Atari 50, he is doing a separate remake of it, oops. Well I guess I have a playable coffee table book of Atari history now.

NEW JEFF MINTER GAME

metro.co.uk/2022/12/07/jeff-mi

The "Atari 50" collection contains a remake of a super-obscure unreleased Atari prototype called "Akka Arrh" by Jeff Minter. He is doing his usual psychedelic eye-massage thing to it.

Man I really gotta get the curtains up in the living room, if they were up I would be tempted to blow all day on this. Instead I'm just buying it and having a brief look on the somewhat-sun-washed-projector screen.

Tonight’s pizza was brought to me by Velma dropping her glasses.

man I sure did sit at the cafe and fuck around aimlessly with a plugin on a drawing that's not going anywhere today

well, back home I guess

hey future me

when you get home and plug the computer back into the desk, reconfigure ControlPlane to consider the new monitor to be a sign that you are At Home With The Desk so that your Illustrator panel layout automatically changes again

thanks from past me

I wish it was a little more saturated but I found Weather Strip and damn this sure is packing everything I want out of a weather app into the first thing I see when it loads. No upsells to the $40/y tier (seriously, Carrot?), no random photos, no overly flashy rendering of the bare minimum, just a thoughtfully-designed graph that shows me today and the next few days. If it’s reasonably accurate then I’m sold.

There is a note at the top of Dark Sky that it is going to stop working in a couple months so I am looking at the weather apps in the ios store and damn there sure are a lot of apps that have huge flashy screens that don’t provide a fraction of what Dark Sky put into the first thing you see when you load it.

Old art from 2012 - 4/20/12 to be precise, if file dates are to be believed - that I felt like posting on Redbubble for prints today. Maybe you're the person who needs this in their life so badly that I heard your psychic cry and did the prep work. Maybe someone you'll share it with is that person.

Yay, my new cable has my computer back to one plug to connect power, monitor, and three wired USB devices. There is still some stuff to sort out regarding audio - it looks like the old Dell monitor would happily pass HDMI audio to its headphone jack even after going to sleep, while this fancy super-calibrated Asus monitor will not - but I'll work that out eventually.

I am having one of those moments where it feels like all the complex ritual found in many books of magic is just there to make you THINK you’re doing magic, and get in the way of actually doing it.

Wow. My black coat sure did have some gaping holes that I just meticulously sewed back together. There’s still some that really need closing, and a few other things to do but that’s enough for an hour.
