Hi! Name’s Stephen. Some of y’all miiiiiiiiiight know me as “Sage Freehaven”. Furry, bi White guy, not sure about much of anything else beyond that. I dabble in pixel art and writing from time to time (read: not often enough). Testing the waters here after the situation.

Y’all be good to each other, ’kay? 👋

One day, I'd like to be an Unfluencer

I want to be able to crash any stock by just mentioning that I use the products/services of the company

Life is like a hurricane
Here on fedi
Drama, CWs, memes, migraines
But we're ready
We might goof on "it's been"
Or talk 'bout our kin
AP woo-oo!

Don't Talk To Me Until I've Overanalysed Every Social Interaction I Had Yesterday, Convinced Myself I've Alienated Everyone I Spoke To, Imagined Every Way I Could Fuck Up Today, Been Overwhelmed By Horror About The Future, And Had My Coffee

You never expect to be circled by several robed figures during breakfast... but here I was, cereal halfway between my bowl and mouth.

"Can I help you?" I hesitantly asked.

One gestured to my pile of new books, another gestured at my pile of old unread books, and yet another gestured at the books I was rereading.

From the first time I was exposed to their music watching MTV's Amp back in the 90s to today, I'm grateful for all the years of great #music

The opposite of a TERF is a FRET: a Feminist Reactionary-Eliminating Trans person.

I have a small habit of remaking memes/image macros that have been JPEG’d to holy hell and back. I was gonna remake one that was spiritually the same as the image macro I’m posting right now, but I couldn’t find the original image for it—so I grabbed an image off Unsplash that had a similar idea and made this instead. :blobfoxlaughsweat:

Norbert Wiener's concept of cybernetics comes from this milieu.

This shows:

1. State bureaucracies can afford high degrees of freedom and creativity when motivated to do so.

Internet utopianism, which also stems from this milieu, was always inherently doomed because the power mechanics of the military industrial complex were never made explicit, let alone examined, challenged or removed. This was hidden in plain sight, but it was hidden. (Especially from the Gen Xers who bought into it wholesale.)
