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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

Tonight in Dying In Space, The Game, I found the derelict spacecraft of the Ancients and spent like ten minutes floating around it looking for the entrance, then got in and read some messages about other Ancients making plans for the end of the universe just as the “supernova time is now” music started playing. Now that’s timing.

I am an adult who schedules meetings about print jobs and this feels weird every fucking time I do it

Add-on idea: the Horny Furry Lab OSHA Inspector character who is constantly ending up “accidentally” stuck as a Horny Science Test Subject and “secretly” enjoys it.

Do you ever wonder what would happen to your typical Horny Furry Lab Fantasy if OSHA got involved?

“We have six hundred counts of people getting ‘accidentally’ locked into extreme bondage in the past quarter alone. You really need to get this down if you’re not gonna be in violation, a lab your size should be having about twenty to fifty incidents of that per quarter, max”.

This footnote from the text sitting next to the unfinished New Major for the second edition of the Silicon Dawn still makes me happy.

Tonight we remembered the existence of Tank Vixens, that legendary early furry story about lesbian foxes in hover tanks. zizki.com/mike-sagara/tank-vix, nsfw, possibly has aged very very poorly.

Dying In Space Update: I did not manage to land on the Quantum Moon despite thinking I had figured out how to do so. Drat. Clearly there is something else I need to learn.

OH SHIT I think I finally figured out how to get to the Quantum Moon, now I just need to execute this plan

without any autopilot because the 'start autopilot' button is used for other things

aaagh

things I say on the toilet 

Transom Cat is very hard to get a good photo of sometimes. My phone did NOT want to keep its f-stop low enough for this image.

I made it through the currents around the core of Giant’s Deep! Then I broke my ship and went out to fix it without putting on my space suit first, and drowned. I think that’s enough Outer Wilds for tonight.

Oh damn that is some attention to detail. I died in space and respawned, looking up at Giant’s Deep passing overhead. The Quantum Moon was there. And then, as always with respawning, I blinked. And the Quantum Moon was gone.

I think it’s time to go die in space for a while. I might decide to get a little drunk while doing that, too. Space exploration mix well, right?

uspol, ancient web lore, whimper 

Damn, there is some nice environmental storytelling in Outer Wilds. I just found the... stuff... near the escape pod lost in the Dark Bramble and now I am sad.

Gods bless Bristol, as it continues to slowly erase the name of its biggest slave trader from... well, all manner of things all over town. Today's news is a pub that decided they shouldn't wait until they have a better name before dropping "The Colston Arms", so they are now provisionally "Ye Olde Pubby McDrunkface". bbc.com/news/uk-england-bristo

I hope for the staff's sake that the name doesn't stick, but it's right near the posh university so I bet it does.

tfw you join a discord for an Adobe Illustrator forum and there is one guy who hangs out there answering all the questions with absolute *nonsense*

Seriously they just followed up to me giving a short explanation of how to do a thing with something that does not make any sense to me and I have been using AI for twenty years...
