7 Things That Make You Look Older Than You Really Are 

1) Not getting enough sleep

2) Overindulging in alcohol

3) Accidentally referring to your friends by the names of the ancestors they resemble.

4) Ignoring horoscopes because “All the stars move anyway, so who cares.”

7) At every opportunity, you mention “This all used to be underwater” while gesturing at everything.

cw: porn in the woods / Before Times anecdote 

Pre-internet, it was impossible to predict when/where a youth might first encounter porn. A common trope is the stash found in "the woods."

I remember a long ago morning: torn up magazine pages on a Catholic school lawn, disembodied & strange body parts quickly collected and pocketed by young boys before class.

My best friend hid his scraps under his family's dog kennels. Worked great 'til the kennels got hosed out.

He lost everything.

Before there was social media, I might watch a dumb movie and then have the thought "Shazam is mech," and then that thought would just... go away. Never to bother another soul.

But here we are.

Got a busy weekend lined up. Gonna grow some spines, maybe some poison sacs at the base, learn to cling to salty rocks and speak the language of the tides.

okay, so I just type in this box and then click the blue button labeled TOOT! and then what

Sometimes I just post links as a defense mechanism against the lust-for-things.

Anyway. Pretty much love every little vinyl figure this company puts out: every skull-faced pumpkin, monster, etc.

I wrote a random table of 36 treasures for whatever your fantasy RPG of choice is:

Just in case you're sick of gold and magic swords. Can't throw a rock without hitting a chest of gold with a magic sword sticking out of it.

I hope we're ready to be very forgiving of how weird ppl are going to be when we all have to learn to socialize with strangers again, post-pandemic.

Out of boredom, I find myself drinking water like a movie viking, splashing water down my beard and chest and it's ridiculous, but no one sees me, so who cares

I'm turning feral and I'm probably not alone. All of this will need to be unlearned.

If you ever paraded in the woods, mud-daubed, drinking blood from a cauldron, learning the language of leaves and darkness, [this is the point where the voice in my brain that tells me to shut up won out, uninterested in the punchline structure]

@signalstation listen, pal, it's important that your resolutions be a realistically achievable goal. try eight books.

new year's resolutions (draft)

* Lure the sailors aboard The Merry onto the rocks, drag them down
* Fulfill promise to sea crone who crafted my gills and fins
* Make NEW promise to sea crone for jelly wings
* Read 10 books
* Revenge myself upon the seaside town of Baylock, swooping over them with dripping wings, snatching up babies
* Lose some weight
* Get betrayed by sea crone, dissolve into foam

Hey, mastodon hive-mind.

If one were looking to learn more about autism-related resources and support communities, anyone from that community have an opinion for a good place to start?

i.e. Once someone reads some checklists and starts re-examining their own behavior, where do they go next?

Are there any biologists/fungi specialists willing to glance over a sentence I've written? Just wanna make sure the grammar makes sense and that I'm not pop-sciencing something beyond accuracy

Finished watching LOVECRAFT COUNTRY. Not as much crafting as I expected.

... Look, I didn't want to share that joke anymore than you wanted to read it. Social media is a disease.

okay, it's day 2 and I'm sorta regretting my xmas wish for "a maw lined with rows of serrated rotating teeth" cause it was fun to bore holes in things all day yesterday, but I've been flossing for three hours and

holiday music, more or less 

I enjoy making eclectic music mixes, but I'm usually not much for holiday music. But today, the imp of the perverse spoke up and said it was sure I could make a 45 minute mix of xmas tunes I genuinely like that are eclectic as all get out.

So if your holidays need rock, blues, reggae, dubstep, an off-key children's psychiatric ward, some vaporwave, some drum-n-bass, and other suchlike and so on... well. I have a download for ya.
