We tried to play/sing Brass Goggles outside the library together at the Steam Powered Michiganders meetup a couple weeks back. This is what happened. I don’t think I know the URL of Wren, who was playing my guitar?
Say hello, The Spine. You’ve got a lot of people wanting to meet you.
Yes, that’s right folks, after a good few days of work, we’ve successfully converted The Spine from steam-powered to solar-powered. He’ll be perfectly fine so long as he’s still nearby the sun. If we get too far away, he’ll have to spend time under a lense in order to concentrate the starlight enough to power him. But that won’t be for quite some time. Like say, past the orbit of Mars.

Finished this sock tonight! It’s the first one I’ve made out of actual sock yarn, and also the first time I’ve tried cable knitting. The cuff came out a little funny, I think because I switched to a bigger gage needle for that thicker black yarn.
it really alarms me that marketing to men is geared around more - more power, larger muscles, more enduring hair
while marketing to women is based on less - less weight, fewer wrinkles, shrink pores (which isn’t biologically possible, though you can reduce their appearance), body hair gone
like so many industries are saying, we want more of each man and less of each woman, and we want you to pay us for following our orders
everybody has that one fictional character that they irrationally adore above all others and will defend to the death and you just get super happy and excited whenever you see their face on your dash
Or their mask, as the case may be :)
Dammit, already put a crack in my new phone. Not used to how slippery it is yet.
