I did a thing I wanted to avoid and *it wasn't that bad*. If I could only remember this for next time...

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

I used to buy band merch. Now I buy podcast merch.

Long introduction 

Updating this again.

Hi everyone, I'm a Blind, and gay, writer and reader that doesn’t talk verbally a lot to people because I stutter. I'm some flavor of human that's always growing and evolving. I roll my eyes at people that use Liberals and Neoliberal like a gotcha. It's not good praxis. Basically,

I care more about progress than labels. I also care very much about harm reduction when any Revolution is discussed. I value progress, progression, advancement, and actual empathy. Not empathy just to get more social media likes.

I'm disabled, and honestly can't stand the entire online left. I am offline more than I am online, reading, writing, playing audio games and even video games. I also recently started streaming, too. More importantly, I detest the non-disabled social media spaces. There are far better things I do with my time. I value art over any form of social media. I believe art, of any form, can teach me more about social justice than listening to people on any social media platform. Now, on to the fun stuff!

I love cats, especially union organizing cats like Jorts (and Jean) I love reading. I love most books people would find ghastly, like Flowers in the Attic, but I also love romances and Young Adult books. I read all banned books no matter who bans them. The only genre I just can't connect with is Westerns.

I hate all forms of crypto, no matter if you're left wing.

I'm a literary activist and a Disabled activist. I blog a lot about many long form opinions or thoughts I have. I cry of utter joy when people hug in books.

I'm also sex repulsed so don't write sex in my fiction, but I fully support sex work. I love almost any cookie, and love cats in books along with fan fiction.

I use IFTTT so I can take extended social media breaks and still post blog updates to all social networks without me logging on for a month or more. For a reason why, see https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/2021/10/11/different-literary-activism/

You can get an overview of my website here https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/map/

My main RSS feed is at https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/feed/

Ultimately, I believe in every social justice fight because that eliminates all forms of oppression but especially Disability injustice because everything is Disability related.

Lastly, I read and write fan fiction, in addition to blogs. I love fiction podcasts and listening to fan fiction podfics.

I'm offline more than online, so subscribe to all updates here https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/subscribe/

I give back to my street team a lot. To join my street team, go to https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/team/

Amateur upholstery 

Mended this needlepoint tiny stool my grandma Mavis decorated in 1931. There was some horse hair in there, I'm pretty sure. Wee bit of glue on one leg. I'm stoked.
Our household furniture is extreme mish-mash of various hand me downs + Ikea.

POTS book question 

are there any books about #pots out there? I tried to search in the library and a online bookshop but all I'm getting from their search engines is books about potty training and pots (for plants or cooking or whatever).

Boost based consumerism 

Someone boosted this into my feed, I bought it, and it is awesome. Thanks interwebs humans.

The main reason I haven't had to have an abortion (yet), is ample access to sex education, and contraception.

The CWs were there, I did not heed them.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

Hand selfie (semi ph-) 

Been tearing out metal sheeting from my basement ceiling that's not in use for a cold air return any longer. Clumsy hand scabs. I like when my hands are grimy from work I'm happy with. Think dirty garden hands, ink stained printmaking nails, etc...

a traditional masto it ain't
though you wouldn't know it from its paint
watch us talk slightly odd
with a wink and a nod
on account of a thrilling constraint
