Pinned toot

Would you like a tarot reading? My cats will hook you up but you have to shuffle because no thumbs.

I feel like I just leveled up my witchiness vibe with my amazing familiar, too.

Soooo... I guess I am not going for that bike ride today. Or maybe ever? 馃悵馃う鈥嶁檧锔

I only went about 2 months without riding my bike and these folks moved in!

I've been slowly exposing their nest more and more hoping to persuade them to go find a better one. (That's why I'm now able to take such a close up picture.) But they seem content to stay. 馃槗

They just name-checked Bayard Rustin! This is really good. I'm kvelling!

So far poseathon.com is magically, beautifully queer & cheesy. It's got 80's telethon energy, 70's soul, and 2020 revolutionary energy, all through the medium of a Zoom meeting.

I hope this is just the beginning of a new era where companies are expected to care about more than their profits. They are just as responsible as the rest of us for creating the world we live in. At least until the workers truly seize the means of production.

"Black queer people exist. Stonewall was a riot against police. The fight for Gay Liberation was lead by queer and trans women of color. Why do we need to learn these things over and over?"

Protests are on-going in Minneapolis against racist murders by police, and a lot of people are going to need bail money. Folks can contribute here: minnesotafreedomfund.org/donat

the future, coronavirus 

We have to stop thinking of COVID-19 as a temporary condition, and start adjusting and responding to the new normal.

US politics, COVID-19, cannibal rats 

This may be the most American thing I've ever read.

I hope people who shared photos of homicidal, racist "open the economy" tools, will also check out the many people protesting to PROTECT each other. Consider sharing an equal number to help people realize there are more of us!

I also loved how cantpaywontpaydurm.org had their own mini radio station so we could all bump the same tunes and stay connected from our cars. And I super appreciated the bike marshalls for stopping traffic and keeping us safe. (All while looking fantastic 馃懇鈥嶐煄ゐ煔.)

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch this live teach-in with the great Angela Davis and Naomi Klein, as well as Durham's own Loan Tran and others. It's one of the few things that has given me hope that it's worth making it through this miserable fucking experience and that we can organize and build a better world.
