Hi, I'm the admin here at stream.void.garden
I'm trying to build a small, friendly community for people who make things and want a chill place to hang out
I'm modelling this community based on advice from runyourown.social
I'm someone who makes mostly digital things, generative art, interactive media, and I'm also learning about electronics and modular synthesisers
we exist again
remember our number
Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so
Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.
I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

I don't know about your intentions, but mine are to create a space without cops, so this is entirely consistent
for real tho, if you ever need any content warnings for a movie, check out http://doesthedogdie.com
it doesn't just warn for animal death anymore. a ways back it started adding more and more content warnings.
it's gotten to warning for specific kinds of deaths, specific kinds of trauma and abuse, hatecrimes, specific mutilations, addictions, etc.
it's really really helpful for people with any kinds of triggers for stuff like that.

basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.
but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.
At this point I realise that nightmares are my brain just processing shitty/scary emotions, and it's not the content of the dream that is in itself scary. So it's already decided that it's going to be scared, and it's scrambling for some justification
Sometimes it's weird existential horror, other times it's "oh no, furniture broke" 🤷
Last night I had a nightmare where my boyfriend told me to look outside because it was snowing, and when I looked...
THE TABLE IN THE GARDEN WAS BROKEN!!!
I woke up in a panic, and then when I calmed down, all I could think was "for fuck's sake brain, I know for a fact you can do better than that"
