i shot, directed and edited a short movie for the 48-hour film festival recently. it won some awards, including best film. :^) we drew the genres "fantasy" or "family film", and chose both.

Minnesotans, we have the opportunity to demand our right to repair the devices we own! Tell your legislators to support HF 1138 (even the bill's number is awesome!)
my nephew and his friends asked me to play fortnite with them. (not my thing, but whatever, they're into it.)
i took one of them down, and the others mocked him for getting killed by a "default". this is, i gather, a slur for someone who hasn't bought any character models.
we don't need to teach kids prejudice, they'll figure it out.
Hot take: economics is largely built upon a foundation of bullshit, but some of it is not entirely bullshit. Right now, economics is like alchemy. Some of the principles are correct, or even useful, but the fundamentals are just flat-out deadass wrong. It's alchemy, and we need to turn it into chemistry.
i'm late to the party but blender, perhaps my favorite piece of software, turned 25 yesterday. :^)
