Pinned toot

I wanted to make a Curious Cat, but that wants you to sign up with twitter or facebook, and fuck that noise, so I made a Q&A article/page on my blog instead, since it's also an excuse to actually do something with that.

Have at it! amandag.net/article/qna

Pinned toot

For I am announcing my blog! You can find it at amandag.net

There's not a whole lot there yet, considering I just launched on it, but I made it myself more or less from scratch and I worked real hard on it! I'm a tiny bit proud.

Is there anything gayer than saying "I love you" at each other at the exact same time as you head off for the day? :blobcatlesbian:

nothing 

I'm so fresh you can suck my nuts / ewag

I think it should be illegal for the sun to rise any later than 7:30 in the morning

I'm gonna embark on an endeavor I'm totally underestimating and make a tiny matrix client

everyone talks about the fact that we say "roll the window up" despite the fact that car windows aren't operated by a crank any more, but nobody talks about the fact that we "ship" software despite the fact that almost no software gets shipped to stores any more

art, boosts appreciated 

Art #50:"Ocean Sunset"

I sell these as "Pay what you want / can". I need my costs for materials and shipping covered, anything more will be awesome and appreciated!

Check my gallery for more: kittenme.ws/art/

Like my art and want more? I am currently not cash positive with my art and I would appreciate a Ko-Fi (if you're able to)!

Anyway, because I keep doubting myself, I'd appreciate feedback (and boosts!) if you like it!

hot take

disney, copyright 

Now, in a move that only Disney would be brazen enough to try, they have unilaterally decided that they simply don't have to pay authors for their work.

disney, copyright 

I'm increasingly convinced that Disney is one of the companies that has done most harm in the world. Their harm is not economic or ecological, as in most cases, but cultural. Whenever Mickey Mouse would run out of copyright, they use their considerable power to make sure copyright terms are extended in the US – and because of US power, elsewhere in the world. This has robbed us a hundred years of culture that should be in public domain but instead is inaccessible and forgotten.

the mr. tv man: but who solves mysteries if not for the coppers!!
me, pulling out a comically long list that starts with like "journalists, lawyers, doctors & scientists, private investigators," and then goes on to list every single other career ever because "mystery" as a general writing concept is not something policemen or crime have a monopoly on???
