Going to fail asleep to The Inevitable End på Röyksopp Godnatt mina kära vänner!

alcohol, selfie, eye contact 

Cheers, and goodnight! NightCap of absinthe in my favourite antique Til Lykke glass.

Today has been - trying. But you good people have helped me keep my shit together. Much love to you all :-) 🖤

So I got something right, for a change? I got a team running the WeRWorld Twitter RoCur for Eurovision. Ended up with 3 in the Americas, and 4 in Europe, and we've had like 24 hour coverage, and it's going down so well.

Can't do shit myself but, as someone (professionally) pointed out before, I'm a good facilitator.

Re last toot, I've been saying similar on BirdShite for some time, but now I say it here and feel COMFORTABLE saying it.

Got elebenty squillion problems of my own, but I am there for this.

Not entirely randomly: if you are struggling with any aspect of your identity, whether gender, sexuality, or anything else, feel free to yell at me. I'm not a counselor, or anything like that, I'm just a regular person who WILL NOT JUDGE YOU, willing to listen.

Because you are important.

medical, not fun 

Yay, tablet night! (Yay, not.) Time to fill up my 3 weekly pill organisers.

Chronic illness a) sucks and is b) expensive.

Aldi still has the $220 sewing machines. So. Fucking. Tempted.

But I did my expenses spreadsheet for my accountant today, and found that I bought my big laser cutter back in October 2020, and I STILL HAVEN'T FITTED THE FOCUSING DEVICE (after market.)

But if I'm going to sew stuff, I sure as hell aren't going to be cutting by hand, not with the pain I get holding shears, and not after seeing vision of a fashion designer with a HUGE gantry laser cutter, cutting out a suit...

As usual, Aldi delivers! Want to do something in trans flag colours? We've got the marker pen set for you!

Mike Oldfield status 

This is my second playing of Light and Shade, and I'd quite forgotten what it was like. Oldfield sure can do techno.

Music of the Spheres, up next, I've had for a while - possibly since it came out. Man on the Rocks and Return to Ommadawn I've only acquired in the last month or so, so second playings for both of them.

Mike Oldfield status 

Tubular Bells 2003 is a pure sonic explosion. It's like you've been listening to the original all these years from another room, and then you finally go inside.

The sheer sonic depth is - mind-blowing. I'm not even attempting to work whilst listening to it. Partly because it's making me teary, and obstructing my vision.

Anyone into synth oddities, Audiokit has just released a "Lo-Fi VHS synth" for iOS. $3.99 I assume that's USD. Essentially synths that have been recorded onto VHS tape, then resampled.

I bit the end off the smallest I could pick up. FUCK YEAH, ENDORPHINS! Yes, they are hot. 4 or 6 in my dinner? Finely chopped. And GLOVES ON. These are PPE grade chillis.

Show thread

I have no idea how hot these are, so need to test to see what goes in my dinner. Pequino, I think. The plants are quite pretty. Black is one of the ripening colours.

Trying to mentally compose a Kandinsky-style piece in trans flag colours. Need more colours that don't need mixing to do a study. Have to look at the pencils currently on offer at Aldi.

I want to do a series, for the people who have supported me through some recent shit. Personalised.

If I can't expand my creative output beyond my work, I think I might burst. It has been FAR TOO LONG since I last did an Art.

Sometimes BirdShite can be good. I run the WeRWorld RoCur (Rotation/Curation account) and I've organised a team of hosts for this, week.

Anyone who's on BirdShite and is into may wish to tune in to the @ WeRWorld RoCur (rotation-curation account) this week as we have an international team on deck this week, rather than just a single host. Should be fun!

Goodnight, folks!I I had so much emotional junk stacked up...
Just going to hit the sack.

Goodnight!
