The bicycle is such an elegant vehicle. So beautiful and iconic, graceful and efficient.

street scammers 

What do y'all think about paying street scammers? I used to have the mindset of detecting scams and avoiding giving them a single cent at all times, but I've been reflecting recently and wondering if it is really such a big deal. If they have nothing better to do than trick people for money, then they probably need it, right? If they're asking for an amount I can comfortably give, then who cares if they actually need it for drugs or something. The more sneaky or forceful the scam is, the less likely I am to willingly give them money if I figure it out though.

For example, I gave someone $10 because they were "$8 short for the bus home". My parents told me afterwards that was a scam. But even if I had known they were lying, would I still give them the money? Is it foolish to do so?

I made a button from my fungible star artwork and I'm so content with it

I just had to pirate a movie because DRM made the copy I actually paid for unplayable. DRM literally causes piracy lmfao

I've been meaning to draw the *other* Linux mascot for a while and this ASCII art phase seemed appropriate, so here's a Xenia.

I just found out that my windows 10 partition broke itself, meanwhile "unstable" arch linux has not failed to boot in the 2 years I've been daily-driving it. Lmao

I love how they always tease us when they release singles by cutting off with a transition to the next song, so you can tell the single is a part of an album

i wish all the cool fediverse people inside my phone were real 😔

Honestly being a trans girl rocks because I can talk in a feminine voice but also sing like brad roberts from crash test dummies

Oh my god two of my favorite instruments: glass harp and theremin. They complement each other so beautifully in this performance.

Howl's Moving Castle theme "Merry-Go-Round of Life" performed on theremin and glass harp:

I like to listen to the whole album this is from, it's so relaxing and nice

money help ask 

hi lovelies,
i've been keeping on top of things for the most part and am ready to start streaming on a regular basis! :blobcatcoffee:
one thing that's making life a lot harder and limiting my ability to interact is that i haven't had phone credit in a while.
i'm putting out a call for contributions to get $20 to top up my phone so i'm not wifi-hopping so much of the time.
you can help me out here:
