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

Disability, django reinhardt, Happy birthday Show more
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!!

death Show more
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
