I just wanna put it out there that 99.999% of my ideas are things that I'm like "damn this should be a thing" so if you ever see me talking about a project I wanna do and you have the ability to do that project yourself, usually I will be happy if you "steal" the idea, even if I don't get credit or involvement (although some things I would love the opportunity to be involved with if you feel like reaching out!)

Commissions (art, sewing, knitting) 1/2 

I think I've casually mentioned commissions being open (for visual art) but I figured I should actually pin up some details!
Currently (and see replies in case this has changed), my commissions are open for art, sewing, and knitting, and here are some restrictions and pricing:

Visual art:
Digital, pencil, or acrylic (open to other media)
Price depends on complexity, could be anywhere from $5-100

I may decline super complicated patterns

"popular myth is that people who are Very Computer have computers that work. nothing could be further from the truth. the Very Computer are capable of generating much more novel and fascinating ways to make computers not fucking work and exercise this capability wantonly"

guys, when explaining the #fediverse to new people, just go with the simplest analogy, e-mail. worry about the specifics later. no i don't care if it's not completely accurate, you can make it more "correct" after the fact. you just need to put very basic understanding into new people's heads, you don't need to go

"oh well activitypub is a yoingus sploingus babingyi"

no just say something like

"say you were on outlook, and i was on gmail. we could still send each other emails right? imagine that, but with tweets instead of emails"

i've used this explanation dozens of times, and people always get it.

- don't buy fuel
- don't pay for repairs
- don't use paid parking
- don't cause any major accidents
- don´t need multi-lane highways

how much money do u think the automobile industry has given to youtube to suppress 'not just bikes' recommendations

online fabric stores say things like "stretch" and "drape" and "hand" (not sure what that one means) but what I wanna know is "spinny"

okay so I need to get a lot of practice with making sure things fit the right sizes but I can't afford to be sending ppl free clothes bc I would have to pay for materials and shipping
so I'm thinking of starting an "as is" section on my store where I sell things for way less than they're worth but enough to at least mostly cover materials, and have a disclaimer that they might not fit right
the problem with that tho is idk if people would give me any feedback

honestly I really love the cws it makes it so easy to overshare without crossing lines (and ofc there's still a safety/security line but I'm better at self-preservation than at stopping myself from saying things people don't care or don't want to know about)

Alice was trying to find Bikini Bottom as a Kingdom Hearts world logo, and apparently that doesn't exists, so I had to go and make it.

"This page looks better in our app."
It's funny how some sites try to present their failures as a good thing.

Really tired of “activists” who think activism is berating people online for caring about different issues than they do
