Lately when I meditate/do minor magical ritual practice stuff I have been getting visons of unidentified guardian/deity types just... sitting there and casually watching me, with a smile. Like, the same kind of attitude you have when you’re watching a kid repeatedly try to do a brainteaser and waiting for the moment when you see a lightbulb go on over their head because they finally figured out they could put 2 and 2 together to make 22.
Next time I get this I should ask them for hints. They’ll probably just tell me I have everything I need to work it out. It’s that kind of smile.
Sitting around listening to an ex-Floyd jamming aimlessly with the Orb before I go to bed.
I was originally gonna listen to Orbus Terrarum, which is kind of my favorite Orb, but for some reason that’s not on the iPad, probably because Apple thinks my old VBR rips are too shitty for them to want to match.

Every time @zebratron2084 calls home and tries to convince their mother to vote Democrat instead of Republican in the upcoming election, I feel so goddamn spoilt, because if my mom was still alive our political conversations would be much more about "oh god this fucking idiot" and *maybe* some disagreement over whether Sanders was a good idea or not, I dunno.
Thank you for being a big-city liberal, MJ.
Transom Cat sits in the window over the door watching me meditate, mewing occasionally to make sure I know she’s there and I should feed her.
After meditating I decide to to another coat of black on that mask I’m testing it on, she jumps in the window and hops onto the bins I’m using as a makeshift table. I remove her.
Then she goes to the living room and hops onto the table with the projector, and knocks over a bottle that still has last nights beer. Now there is beer on the assorted books and boxes around there, aargh. She was escorted out very quickly.
At least it landed on its bottom and somehow didn’t break, and it only really got the edges of a couple of books...
@zebratron2084 helped me wipe everything off, and was good enough to be the one to take some food out for the cats. I was surprisingly calm about the whole thing but it was still better to have someone whose hoard had not just been endangered feed the kitties!
Last week I had the sudden horrible thought that I bet people on the descendants of 4chan have designed a sexy anime girl named Corona-Chan and are rabidly masturbating to her in hopes of giving more magical power to the spread of the virus. I did not post about this because I did not want to put this idea in anyone’s head, in case nobody else had had it yet.
Today someone posted on the occult subreddit about her and, yep, she is exactly what I expected her to be.

Me: Hey @zebratron2084 would you hate me if I took this Anubis mask that got beat up in transit, patched it some, and used it as a test for this Blackest Black paint?
zebratron: [stares, eyes wide in amazement]
Me: that’d be a yes then
So hey if you are using Adobe stuff like me, they are not offering any kind of Epidemic Economy Collapse Discount, but if you go try to cancel your plan their standard user-retention flow will offer you two months free. Supposedly if you call them to do this you might get three instead but who the hell wants to pick up the phone? I did it online and got two months off, good enough.
