Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.

But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.

My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.

Aye folks. I don't how other instances will operate, but I can promise Social will be a safe space for us to talk openly about issues without wasting effort on people that don't want to listen.

I want honest convo on my instance, but if one cannot do that respectfully and without resorting to childish taunts, they will be shown the door.

I'm the big brother you call when someone is getting on your nerves.

I got your back. Always.

I love . Let me do a proper one.

I'm Ro. I design, develop, overthink and on occasion, make beats. Check out: thetwelfth.house And before you ask, yes. I am.

I'm a mediaphile which means I'm always watching or listening to something. Follow trakt.tv/users/are0h and/or last.fm/user/AreOh for details

I'm also a history buff and I think a lot about social theory. Ha, you've been warned.

Needless to say, I got a lot going on. But I'm pretty cool... generally.

One high profile act after another — Jay-Z, Rihanna, Cardi B — rejected the NFL's offer to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, standing in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. "It says what we already know ... hip-hop is cooler than the Super Bowl."

The only thing special about the social media giants is their duplicity

Facebook made their money by exploiting their users the most underhanded fashion and then became a safe space for the internet's worst behavior.

Twitter has never turned a profit and has survived by getting periodic VC cash transfusions, which explains why they are so friendly with bad actors posing as conservatives.

The idea that these places represent progress is a bad joke.

Ha, that HuffPot interview of Jack Dorsey is an example of what happens when you talk to someone that doesn't know what they're doing but hits the right buzz words so people think he's 'smart'.

Leaving that place was a great decision.

Despite the federal government telling California it can't offer unemployment coverage to federal employees required to work without pay during the shutdown, the state's governor says "we're going to do it, and shame on them."

I'm gonna change this design another ten times before I settle on something.

Let me sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.

Ok, made some updates to the previous mock that I think I like enough to build.

There are few things that are more satisfying when you push your muscles to the point of fatigue and that burn sets in, but you push through it to get a few more reps in.

I'm getting addicted to that feeling. If my muscles aren't screaming, I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing.

My workouts are going really well, so I feel like I'm a couple protein shakes away from ballooning up.

I like being svelt, so I'm gonna stick to a sensible amount of protein, but I am mildly curious to see how I would look with a bit more muscle.

Ok, the mock up has been aunt approved.

I think we can move forward now.

Are0h boosted

Yes, a good portion of my mock up images are women I kind of have a thing for.

They cute and stuff.

SOLARPUNK IS TRASH IF IT HAS NO AFROFUTURISM OR POC INPUT
thank you

Ok, so you log into Fipamo and this is the opening screen. Thoughts?

@jalcine gave me a book about investigating modern UI conventions and now I'm sitting here redesigning Fipamo...

got damn it...

"As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging," Cohen said on Twitter on Thursday, "what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it."

I'm very open my views on whiteness and that culture. I don't hide behind memes or marginally clever attempts to be subversive.

If you want to know something, just ask like a sensible person.

But if you come at me like a bigot in bad faith that's how I'm going to treat you.

If you don't want that result, act like you have some sense.
