In the early days of the Internet, insularity and homogeneity aside, the wide open access to things by default meant that we had the liminal social spaces more easily.

You can walk up to a crowd, unknown to them, and scope them out. They'd probably be quite public, you would be quite anonymous, and you could start participating pseudonymously, if not outright anonymously. You can see how a group reacts to you, you can adjust yourself and join, be accepted, and only then reveal who you are.

All lawns should just be clover and wildflowers. Yes they'll probably be taken over by bees.

Sorry lawns belong to the bees now

I played my first game of tonight, where I also MCed. I was uneasy about the prospect of being put on the spot while other players depended on me, but this first session turned out great.

I really appreciated how the game system (and I assume this extends to apocalypse world too) distributes storytelling authority equally to everyone, rather than just to me. (Creativity has a cooldown timer!)

I'm wildly excited to keep this game going now that the session ended on a cliffhanger.

right after i joined mastodon i saw a post (idr who it was from) that said smthn like "it's really painful how things like art and dancing are considered something you have to be good at instead of things that all humans do, as naturally as eating or breathing" and i think about that all the time. the things that we naturally do have been commodified and portrayed as somethint to struggle for, as things that only The Best are allowed to do. when without that pressure, we would all just do them??

It's gay denim jacket weather again, and I'm extremely here for it. :heart_trans:

Tech Question, Home Server 

A confession: having grown up playing has molded my use of language to the extent that in text messages or speech I'll just outright say social commands like "cackle" or "comf"

(This toot brought to you my me doing just that right now, and realizing that they probably have no idea what I just said.)

woman goes to doctor. says she lost her house in the divorce. doctor says, don't marry American women. woman says "but doctor I am the American woman"

Also, a window into the application in progress, from my deprecated fedi account:

My other interactive art work, which is currently a work in progress, involves a star field. Finding a machine readable database of star positions led me to Early Aughts Hobbyist Internet, which I adore unreservedly.

Anyway, I really appreciated finding Project Rho, which hosts a page of 3D star maps. (projectrho.com/public_html/sta) It directed me to the HYG database, which is what I ended up using for my program.

Oh hi, didn't notice you there. Just some leisurely hacking on the train to Pittsburgh. :trainsgender:
