introduction Show more
ive been on here for a little while, but i havent properly done one of these so heres my #introduction
I'm Jack, I'm 19, at the moment I'm on a gap year, before I start college in the fall (which is gonna b in the pacific northwest). I grew up, and still currently live on Oahu.
I have a great passion for helping people, and want to learn how to do more and help more people, and I'm trying to do so. Things tend to take a bit of time for me.
I'm still learning about it, but I'm definitely anarchist/communist.
And! I love making things! Most recently that's been weaving, which I immediately fell in love with. I also know how to sew, knit, learning to crochet, embroider, as well as painting and drawing. I also write a lot of poetry, and some fiction (usually scifi or fantasy). And, as you might have seen, I've been gardening.
Nice to meet all of you !
pets, medical emergency, asking for $ help Show more
Friends and compatriots of laserdisc.party, there's not really a clever or zippy way to say this: my cat Celeste has a medical emergency and I need all the help I can get to make sure I don't go broke or hungry while she gets medical attention.
Any little bit counts. I would be eternally grateful for any and all help the fediverse can provide.
They eat weeds and fertilize the soil to make way for grass and other garden-type plants. They also eat weeds *before* they eat grass.
No viable seeds survive their ruminant guts.
As commenter Jose Benitez writes, "It's kinda funny that with all our technology we are now realizing and relearning the old ways are not so bad after all."
Goats go where and do what chemicals and machines cannot.
After technological disenchantment, we are forced to re-learn ancient wisdom.
Free photos alert!
I'm generally planning on moving away from dA at some time in the future but I want to make you aware that all of my photos are now CC0, even if they are marked otherwise (dA mass editing is a pain). If you do use them I'd love seeing what you create!
Any photos from 2018 I also have the RAW and TIFF files for and am willing to provide those on request. Alas all the older stuff was lost in a hard drive fire.

💚 💜 💙 Thanks everyone whose been enjoying by music. I hope it gets used in some fun projects.
I try to keep my creative work as accessible as possible, but I still need to eat. I'm not gonna lie, financially things are pretty awful for me right now. If you have a few bucks and want to support me you can through my music. I setup a subscription model for $5 or more a year and you get all of the music I upload.
You can also of course pay what you want for the individual tracks or albums for a one time donation. It's the best way to donate to me though. 💖
new music release! A new EP inspired by solarpunk called ASTRAL.
All tracks were made using 100% FOSS. All tracks are CC. If you have a cool project and don't want to attribute me just ask me and I'll probably OK it. Everything is pay what you want with no DRM. 💖

By the way this thread turned into software really quick but the original sentiment also applies to real life goods. If y'all have food shares, free stores, free skools, time banking, makerspaces, tool libraries, seed libraries, book... libraries, repair cafes, bike repairs, brake light repairs, community gardens, free clinics, meshnets, etc. in your communities, find them and tell your friends about them
its really cold in canada - try to look out extra for folks you see on the street in this weather / cops being horrible mention Show more
Giving people money is basically giving someone a reason to be indoors for as long as it takes to have a coffee or a meal without being accused of loitering.
even though im really anxious about talking to strangers, i can still drop money in hats/cups/wtv.
but i also just saw something about toronto cops pouring cold water on homeless folks and their belongings in our recent -22 weather. so also you can get waterproof emergency blankets pretty cheap at canadian tire and sporting goods stores. i think they're usually 5-10 bucks a pop and they are small and easily folded up to fit in a pocket, easy to have on hand to give someone if they could use for it. can be used to protect the person or their stuff, their choice.
i havent listened to the whole episode yet but the newest This Is America has been super good, a lot about mutual aid and interviews w ppl involved in mutual aid nd community organization
so it's official, the government is trying to kill me. i cant survive off £93 a week, especially when we're being hit with such cold weather. i literally cannot work, i'm disabled, even standing for longer than 20 minutes can put me in severe pain. walking to the local store is difficult enough. at this rate i will have to decide between freezing or starving within the month.
if you have the ability, please consider donating so that i can keep the lights on.

@queeranarchism “The police have been monsters . . . I don’t know who invited those motherfuckers to be in the Pride parade, they are the most detrimental thing to ever happen.”
Miss Major is incredible & it's incredible to have such an amazing icon still alive & active... hopefully this isn't detracting from the original post too much, but if anyone wants to keep up with her, she has a website!
