asking for help, covid, boosts ok 

Hey y’all, I have exactly 10 dollars to my name and because no rent cancellation has been passed I‘ve already had to spend the stimulus money on rent and bills. We need help again, I’m sorry to ask. I’ve been trying to find work that isn’t Uber or Lyft as my partner is immunocompromised, but after 40 applications there has been no callback or leads. Please help us.

For those playing along at home Yelp owns Grubhub, so that's not remotely shady at all. Nosiree.

Fuck Yelp and their Internet Racketeering bullshit.

And while I still have media on my mind, here's a friendly reminder that if you post images to your timeline, give them descriptions. Blind people like myself really appreciate them. One really awesome thing about the fediverse is that in my experience most people actually do this, which is just amazing.

So once again government incompetence has cut off funding for my dream gig (it was a nice... few months, anyway) and I'm adrift in the covid economy.

If you have a line on work involving: Audio Mixing, Audio Programming, Multimedia manipulation or programming in general, or a general Python / Rust gig, I would really, really appreciate it.

In the meantime, I have albums available for sale here:

mired.bandcamp.com/
wingfactory.bandcamp.com/

I also take music commissions.
