Had a dream about how to set up my release pipeline and I might just follow my dream advice.

holding my bag together with safety pins because i got the engineer brain

due to global warming, we're going to have ever longer and more intense hot girl summers

me when the 5g engineers turn on the new signal: "ow my cells!"

I smashed all the mirrors in my house cause this person that looked like me kept trying to break their way into our world.

if you have an oc who gets into swordfights and they don't have their hair tied up so it can dramatically unfurl during the middle of a climactic battle, what the fuck are you doing

a joke is a special kind of lie you tell when you trust your audience

You ever read an article so bad your brain starts to overclock and you clip through the office floor?

i think i'm gonna grind and grind and grind until i'm super famous on twitter and have millions of devoted followers, then one day i'm gonna post "major development, watch this space", then i'm just gonna leave and everyone watching will remain watching, and eventually their phones will die and their minds will empty and they'll have achieved a state of pure meditative self-removal, and i'll have a pretty good day, too

I'm not saying you have to vote, and I'm not saying you have to like it. I AM saying we have to understand that voting is, completely unsurprisingly, seen as a useful political tool by many. And if we want to build the necessary networks to create extragovernmental power, we have to do it with people who vote.

When we speak to voters and potential voters with contempt, at best we are pushing away politically marginalised folks who are necessary for building parallel power structures to the state, At worst, we are putting forward the image of some kind of leftist equivalent to blackpill.

It's useful to discuss the failings of electoralism. It's useful to discuss labour organising. It's useful to discuss civil disobedience and direct action. But like it or not, elections are perceived as the biggest political engine in the world.

A reminder for anti-electoralist anarchists - it's fine to pursue building power outside of the voting booth. In fact, it's necessary if we want to build a strong and stable extragovernmental network of power. However, deriding other leftists or otherwise disenfranchised folks for engaging in in their communities through voting is dogshit politics.
