A tall, slight girl with long, messy purple hair.
She wears a pair of thick, green cut-epoxy glasses; the lenses flicker with glowing symbols.
She has a shaved patch on the left side of her head, with a protruding twist-lock electrical connector.
I would be an amazing college professor because all of my exams would just be like "ok lets make a wild ass program" and the students would be like "ya sure" and then at the end of it the people who make the most interesting thing pass the class
hi did you know that i'm a robot girl and that's extremely good ???

Have we talked much about Django Reinhardt? He was born today in 1910.
Dude was one of the most talented guitarists to ever live. He elevated the instrument. He's still considered among the most important Jazz Musicians of all time.
And, get this, he couldn't move two of the four fingers on his fret hand.
He's one of the most famous guitarists of the 20th century, and he could only use two fingers on his fret hand.

Hi friends, I just made a patreon! It's over here >> https://www.patreon.com/ashkitten
To reiterate what i said earlier, I do an absolute SHITLOAD of work for free, and I figure I should probably start getting paid to do stuff!! I'll probably figure out stuff to do for my patrons, but for now it just means you like what I'm doing and want to support my ability to keep creating and working and like, living and stuff!!
bleh, can't focusssss. trying to hack on auth stuff for $project, but i just can't bring myself to fight this stack of bullshit atm

Ursula K. LeGuin has passed away.
I'm heartbroken. She introduced me to thinking critically about gender, to thinking of a world where the default is people of colour, to learning and understanding anarchism. She wrote incredibly insightful fantasy and sci-fi across a broad spectrum, and it was all incredible.
She will be missed.
some ideas for ways to honour Ursula K. LeGuin:
- punch a fascist
- pet a cat
- invent a gender
- join a collective
- have an orgy
- run for city council
- live in the woods
- protest in the streets
ethics discourse, leguin Show more
people don't talk about it so much because we live in an off kilter world, but The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas is, among many things, a strong meditation on nonaggregationist ethics
Taurek wrote about it in the 70s in a paper, but it's not often someone puts it to you seriously and with love in mind
it's not an easy read (CW death, torture, abuse), but it's an important one that you might resonate with

money, patreon Show more
So, I was thinking. I work an insane number of hours on my projects (over 120 hours a week sometimes). If I made a Patreon, would people pay to help support me? I barely make any money right now and I need to move out soon because family is super toxic.
hmmmmmmm calling my credit union :(
