"Men are always alright. Right up until they pull the trigger. And then we watch the neighbors solemnly march out to the news cameras to tell us: 'He was such a nice, quiet guy.'"

-- Evelyn Marsh, Twin Peaks S02E11 (1990)

What if you could switch off the combat in ODST and just watch the aliens roam about the city

Another thing that happened on the weekend:

A fairly prominent broadcaster on one of the two major sports networks in Canada came out as gay on Saturday.

In the video, the article I wrote about coming out is directly mentioned as an influence on his decision, in addition to a couple talks we had since I wrote that piece.

So yes, I am contagiously spreading the queerness, evangelicals. You were right all along. Nothing you can do about it. Suck on that.

For some reason, after this article was already pushed lower by new #Bandcamp Daily pieces, it is now again on the top of the front Bandcamp.com

Well, thank you, tho I don't understand (doubt there's :bandcamp: writers on the fediverse to explain).

Meanwhile purchases & follows are pinging my app more or less by the hour. It's pretty amazing to compare effects of an ad we did in The Wire (absolutely none) and this (crazy influx of followers, likes, downloads and purchases).

Woke up with the worst sore throat I've had in years. Parrot's gonna get me some soup

Nerd fun fact: the "touch" command in linux is actually absolutely not here to create empty files, it's to change file timestamps.

@socalledunitedstates not only that but:

- It is (according to BBC, for that matter) the biggest producer of organic rice in Latin America: bbc.com/portuguese/brasil-3977 (in portuguese)

- It uses outstandingly ecological methods, like agroforestry: mst.org.br/2018/10/24/agroecol (in portuguese too)

And they've been a major political force in the last decades, despite being constantly attacked by the agropecuary elite and the big media. They're really not popular here

What the fuuuuuuck how have I never heard of the Landless Worker's Movement

mstbrazil.org/

It's a horizontal squatting organization in Brazil somewhat akin to the Diggers, who occupy unused land it and just build farming communities on them. And it's worked. A lot of their squats have been recognized by the state. They now have over 1.5 *million* members, and I've never fucking heard of them

psa: please kindly stop saying "trans and nonbinary"

trans includes nonbinary by default (unless the nonbinary person in question says otherwise)

it was used at pride too and i talked to another enby who pointed it out and that they weren't comfortable about it

it has Consequences when our rights are considered and implemented separately (ie usually not at all) from trans rights
