there are a lot of folks I've connected with thru music, and know me as a musician of primarily electronic material.

there are a lot of accounts I follow that speak broadly to my interest and work in education and creativity, but also in the sciences and social fields. I currently work in child care advocacy and resources, and have previously worked in special education.

I grew up in Chicago, and spent 2005-2018 living in Brooklyn.

I don't have short stories.

#blackmastodon TIL the father of game cartridges is a brother, Jerry Lawson. inclusity.com/jerry-lawson-194

Google has a Google Doodle to honor him today.

Jeanne Dielman at number 1 in the #SightAndSoundPoll is just a huge middle finger to every single trend in contemporary visual culture

paying writers 

I'm working on a zine series and taking contributions from writers. It's a small project, and nobody has asked me to pay them, but the project has fiscal sponsorship now and I'm looking to pay everyone a fair wage.

What's fair?

I was quoted ~$100 per page for indie comic work, which seems more than fair.

Do writers get paid by the word? What is typical?

Boosts welcome. <3

it is raining A LOT in SF rn which is like almost a year to the last time it really rained A LOT here. it's cold!

I actually love this weather so yay.

see it's just small piles of gear and objects on tables in a room with no space for this kind of thing.

Show thread

hey Andy and I are performing this saturday at @anindexofmusic in Santa Cruz so we are making a mess of our living room I mean “practicing.”

doors are at 8p, show begins at 830p, we are up 2nd. would love to see folks, we haven’t been together live since I think 2018!

here's a photo of mine that my work computer shuffled up for a desktop today. china beach, june 2019.

I feel like owning a library with a secret door would solve all my problems

Day 1 on Mastodon: I am johnsmith@mastodon.social? it seems pretty ok I guess?

Day 3 on Mastodon: im pissburglar@daposts.zone now. all fucks to website boy.

Still getting up to speed on masto, but here are a few people I'm following/appreciating, and why:

@shengokai is writing about & boosting conversations around community, design, and use of CWs

@timnitGebru continues to deconstruct the whole Effective Altriusim / Long-termism hustle with precision

@cfiesler is sharing some fascinating research on social's user design, data, and ethics

@MerlinJStar is documenting how new users experience mastodon, and where it works & doesn't work
