The only house I can afford is the item in Final Fantasy I

goddamn i feel like a new being

@pants @balrogboogie "free" is a trap word to obscure the flows of power. if you say "water should be free for Nestlé to come and fence it", you are empowering Nestlé to the detriment of people (BSD license). If you say "the rivers in our city should be freely accessible by fascist warships", you are giving resources to fascists (GPL Freedom 0).

The refusal of the free software movement to take a stance against capitalists has empowered capitalists, because Amazon can get a lot more power out of all the "freely" available code than individual workers can, in the same way that Nestlé can get a lot more power out of a spring than you can.

Moreover the very unspoken premise that this is a problem solvable by licenses in a legalist framework pressuposes that laws and courts are good and work for the people, preventing reforms of the real cause of software injustice: private ownership of the means of production. The freedom to see the source code means nothing if the server farms, networks, computer factories etc. are all controlled by a handful of capitalists.

i mean fuck NFTs and all that shit but if i ever find a way i can create one and make $250k off of it, i sure as fuck would be fine with that

i'm okay with taking whatever bullshit society is high on and taking absolute advantage of it for personal gain

the christian university i made the mistake of attending in the past apparently continues to use my information to send me mailings that equate equality with tyranny

this will make the second time i'm having to request that they cease all contact with me effective immediately

i am proud to be in firm opposition to everything they and their organizations stand for so they need to fuck right off

ugh, uspol, smoking 

banning menthol cigs is literally the least useful thing the FDA could be doing

just fuck off.

really wanting a quite expensive Kiesel guitar but probably shouldn't.... such a superfluous expense

slightly lewd/tmi but then serious 

May have splurged on some recent... personal care purchases.

This is just a PSA to treat yourself goddammit!

Especially if you come from a background of religious sexual repression and shame- celebrate your freedom from it and loudly if you wish.

No more shame or fucked up ideas of purity. Fuck that noise.

me, myself, and i 

still a better holy trinity than the original

Listening to The Midnight and cleaning up my gmail, archiving and getting items ready to hand over to someone else that is taking over web dev for a small business I've helped for about a decade now.

Weird how one gets attached to people/projects even on a "just business" level, it's still emotional in a way, to finally put my "web dev" hobby to rest (aside from strictly personal projects I may pursue).
