Are you a Portland-based carpenter who likes making custom furniture? I work at a local furniture company and we regularly get requests for custom bookcases and other things (nightstands, hutches, tables, etc) and I’m always trying to expand the people we consign or contract with to include more queer people…hence the post on Fediverse. 💖 Say hi, happy to chat more/answer any questions!

when I see people complaining about removing racist statues, I usually say history doesn't stop and adjust itself to your comfort level. People tearing down statues is history. Usually this shuts them up.

[clears throat] Thank you for attending my Poesis of Genre Fiction 401 class. Today's lecture, on the American detective series Columbo, is about how the American bourgeoisie hides... [all auditorium lights cut off, my mic remains powered] their darkness.

Paul Slocum, software developer who has been curating, conserving, and selling digital art since 2006 wrote an excellent and extensive survey of the effects and problems in the takeover of networked culture by creepto-capital.

He couldn't find a suitable publication for his critical perspective which speaks volumes about the state of media institutions which made a name and raise funding precisely promoting the opposite values to those of blockchain culture and now are totally integrated and participating in the cultural and economic distortion described by Paul.

Do read and share widely.

It smells like the left wing of the day of judgment

Bandcamp are running Juneteenth [17th June], where they donate 100% share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, a racial justice organization with a long history of effectively enacting change through litigation, advocacy, and public education

We would like to help with this, that's why we have lowered our music until then

This is a fantastic initiative Bandcamp have run for the [now] third year running

What if we put Garfield's head on top of Bart Simpson's body! 

It'd look something... like this!

there is no earthly way of finding out precisely what the whale really looks like

Take one tear, dropped aside as I go, for thought of you,
Dead house of love! house of madness and sin, crumbled! crushed!
House of life—erewhile talking and laughing—but ah, poor house! dead even
Months, years, an echoing, garnished house-but dead, dead, dead!

Once again I have defied the gods and written another newsletter. The biggest news in this one is that my poetry zine, Schatzi, is now available for purchase online at Bishop & Wilde!

Wild that the name that stuck for the simple machine that helps you pull things was “pulley,” like no one could remember what it was supposed to be called.

Haul in the chains! Let the carcase go astern!

Queequeq, my fine friend, does this sort of thing often happen?

over the last few years I’ve been making a lot of stuffed animals, especially whales made out of recycled denim (ie, old jeans.) all patterns self-drafted, all features embroidered. the first whale I made was 6 ft long :) Fun fact: humpback whales have unique fluke patterns, like fingerprints, so all my whales have unique embroidered patterns on their tails

Uptown broad
Swappin' places in a deal with God
Runnin' up that hill to get her guy
Gonna tell him where the bullet lies

sometimes i look at dogs chilling and im like, what do they know that i do not, how they so chilling

Methinks that what they call my shadow here on earth is my true substance.
