Podcast Recommendations! I get asked a lot for some good podcasts and I don't like pulling down an avalanche of information on the heads of people I just want to have nice things, so I've found it helpful to just have a compilation that I can link. I can give content warnings for any of these, so please feel free to ask for what you need.

People need to learn to see the world as a positive sum game. Anything that benefits one of us, benefits all of us. Anything that disadvantages one of us, disadvantages all of us.

It’s that simple.

if your game is about people getting body augmentations and it doesn't have any queer people in it, i'm just calling it cishumanism

I don't regret any of the last 3 years as a Masto admin because I learned a ton of shit and met a lot of really cool people I wouldn't have otherwise.

Running Social has also given me much confidence in my ability to build and manage my own community, which I will always be grateful for.

But I can no longer use a platform in good conscience that has proven to have no interest in the safety or concerns of marginalized and targeted communities.

So it's just time to move on.

So PV is moving away from Mastodon because it's a flaming pile of horse shit but we're still gonna be around as we continue to push forward with our own community until the new platform gets done.

Social is gonna be up for another few weeks before I take it down and focus on internal projects so if you'd still like to support and stay updated on the latest check out patreon.com/Are0h

For the good folks that don't like Patreon use paypal.com/paypalme/Are0h or $Are0h at CashApp

Free support for folks who are grieving

“What racial and ethnic fakes do when they impersonate racially and ethnically minoritized people is engage in a pairing: They plunge the concept of property deep into the heart of race and race deep into the heart of property.”

Happy International Men's Day to all the lads #onhere. Consider celebrating by talking to a male friend about your feelings today. Or maybe make an appointment with your GP about that health problem you've never really addressed.

I made a harvest apron! I'm tired of carrying stuff in the bottom of my shirt.

Two selfies with the apron in each mode

there are lots of bad things straight writers do but one of the worst is when they don't realize they've written a not straight character

Type people! I was thinking about typeface design and it occurred to me that every type designer I know of is white and most of them are men. Do you have any favorites who are neither?

One thing that's been *amazing* has been talonvoice.com/ . It's a tool by coders for coders, for coding by dictation. It's heavily configurable and programmable (it has an embedded python interpreter for the config), which means it's probably unhelpfully complex for people who don't want to touch code. But if you do, it's pretty great what it can do. I'm a few weeks in and really loving it.

The tallest tree in Wales had been damaged by a storm and was supposed to be cut down, but a better solution was found. Natural Resource Wales, which was in charge of the site, ordered artist Simon O'Rourke to cut down the tree. He thought of a giant hand, symbolising a giant, and the tree's last attempt to reach the sky.
