ok i think i will bless the timeline
In commemoration of the second hundred kilodeaths from COVID-19 in the US (which is either happening soon or possibly has already happened, depending on your source), here is a revised & snappier version of everyone*'s novelty favorite, "Mister Virus"!
* @Harena and about 3 other people
omg, drive-in movie theaters should totally become a thing again, because of social distancing.
The experience could be much richer, too -- there could be live text-chat that you can join by scanning a QIC code located on-site...
And you could use mobile devices for the audio, instead of a thing on a wire -- though if you wanted to use the theater's speaker instead of your phone (because quality), it could be connected wirelessly.
Things that happen #inThisHouse:
The scene -- kids are out in the living room playing video games. I'm tidying off a thing so I can disassemble and move it. @Harena is in the office, next to the living room.
The following reconstruction is approximate, but at least partly accurate:
Kid 1 (yelling at game): Why!!
Me: 🎵 did they send her 🎵
Kid 2: 🎵 over anyone else 🎵
Kid 1: 🎵 how... 🎵
Me: 🎵 should I react? 🎵
Harena: 🎵 These things happen 🎵
Kid 2: 🎵 to other people 🎵
Harena: 🎵 they don't happen at all 🎵
Me: 🎵 in fact. 🎵
Having problems with no less than three of my #DigitalOcean instances this morning -- can't get through at all. (Fortunately, the TootCat server seems to be ok.)
Anyone else having DigOc issues?

So, a week or so ago, I got the sad news that my best beloved knit designer, Cat Bordhi, was dying from cancer.. & I decided i should knit one of her moebius patterns in commemoration & I decided on a cotton sling bag, which i, of course, am knitting in bright green.
Here's the cast on & the first row being knit with the waste yarn (for the body of the bag) already in place.
Musical idea: a compilation album of cover songs, where the lyrics are tweaked (anything from just a few words to outright filking) to be about trans themes.
...plus I've got a couple of trans-themed original songs I could contribute, preferably for the purpose of re-recording them better than the demos I've posted.
Ideally, tracks would be recorded collaboratively -- each musician contributing whatever is a particular strength for them. (e.g. I'm pretty sure there are people on fedi who are much better at rhythm tracks than I am, not to mention guitar)
Example: "More Than a Woman" -- change the line "Suddenly you're in my life" to "suddenly you've come to life". (There may be other tweaks that would be good as well, but that was the one which stood out for me.)
Another example: "Careless Restroom"
