Hey an additional about me in case you’re checking my account before accepting a follow request:

If you get a follow request from me and wondering why this rando white dude is following me it’s because I’m trying to widen my feed to a larger demographic then just other white folx. If that’s not okay, I will hold no grudge - you owe me nothing. If it is okay, I thank you and am open to learning more about experiences outside my own.

I should make a NEW with my new account I guess

I'm John, I'm a 39yo web dev California transplant living in Kentucky with three kids, a wonderful partner, three cats, way too many laserdisc, and just the right amount of bourbon.

As well as being into programming, physical media, and drinking I write, paint, and other nerdy stuff. Will post about my assortment of projects here.

Ankle and foot pain 

So I might be done with the boot?

I’ve pivoted to an ace bandage for a chunk of today and not having the height discrepancy from the boot is actually helping. Yay healing!

I kinda wish Wheaton was on Mastodon again so I could have a chance to bully him for this

The season 2 finale is gross. It’s Star Trek trying to build a franchise that canibalizes off of its own content until there’s nothing left.

It also brought Wesley Crusher back as the equivalent of Rip Hunter and I need to drink more

I misread bourgeois as “boogereois” and I’m cackling at how hard they’ve been owned. Revolution is imminent y’all.

@PalmeDork @hex this is kind of what I was talking about with Clerks a couple weeks ago; the history of 1990s film, especially independent horror, can't be written without The Blair With Project; I don't think those guys are pantheon directors, but it 100% merits inclusion

The groundhog that frequents the property has decided to get close enough to rile up the cats

@hex @derek everything about the release and reputation is so cool to me. like, as a little kid it was like synonymous with the scariest thing there was, even when we hadn't seen it! and I love that aside from a couple of not very notable movies from one of the dudes, they just basically never did anything else. incredible mic drop

woo! moving on to the next interview stage with these guys.

Not me trying to see if I can knock out a quick coding project for the helluvit

Oh yeah the other job interview I had today went well. It was for a place that does tele-vet sessions for pets and has a shop for pet medical stuff and fun stuff and I cannot tell you how much I’d like working at a place like that

My comedy alt was an NFT and it got stolen. All my japes gone.

Buffalo shooting, mh, racism, violence 

So anyway, when you hear people lamenting "oh, it's not guns, it's about mental health!" or "it's all about guns!" just know that they're both wrong.

There is an active and growing white supremacist faction in the USA and until they're rooted out and made to fear for their lives, this kind of thing will keep happening.
