Pinned toot

Hello ! Thanks @finn for admin'ing this instance highlighting and surrounding area. These days I live in West Seattle near White Center and work downtown.

Hoping to spend time here versus browsing news sites so much to contribute and discover links to works by the many talented people in , , and surrounding areas. Occasional random links to free content will undoubtedly show up, too.

A few weeks ago I (virtually) presented a #workshop on dealing with stage fright at the International Thespian Festival.

Now that the festival has ended, I'm happy to be able to release the #video under a #CreativeCommons license on the #InternetArchive

I'll leave it to the viewer to determine if my askew perspectives on fear have any useful applications outside the world of #theater. Regardless, enjoy seeing me talk shop to an adorable stuffed lion named Glitter.

And this all comes back to the whole "Surfing the web vs stroking your feed" thing. You used to go from one website to another to another, it felt like travelling. Now the system is that you stay right there and have Content fed to you through a feed. It feels like the internet has become more like television.

It's so funny to me that the three publications they show the Ghostbusters in to show they have captured the national zeitgeist are USA Today, The Atlantic and OMNI magazine.

Frankly quite alarming how many of you will read a story about a person doing something reckless and dying from covid and walking away with a "so what, they deserved it" type attitude

this country would be a million times better for everyone if Black and Indigenous people had power, it would even be better for the rich whities because none of them are actually happy with their blood money anyway
