Hi, new people, I'm Emma. I'm a queer, trans non-binary woman (she/they,) amateur astronomer, and wife of @cynthia1960.

I get paid to help people make web browsers, and have cats, a lot of tiny computers, and I like cooking, hockey, indie pop, shoegaze, and post punk.

I'm helping make the all-online version of happen this year too.

The photo is Json, the youngest of our cats. They are extra, but I love them.

It's Bandcamp Friday again, and another chance to remind you that is a listing of black artists and labels on Bandcamp, searchable by genre (if you're looking for something specific) or location (if you're looking to buy local)


I used one of the limes on the tree on our porch, and also added roasted, unsalted peanuts.

It's good.

My #zine order from Germany came! I don’t usually read music zines, but this one is queer/feminist and looked really cool.

It's Bandcamp Friday.

I'm here to boost your bands, esp. BIPOC and Queer artists.

Tonight is yellow curry with sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, and carrots.

I'll add a splash of fish sauce and some limes when the vegetables are tender.

Engagement rings are supposed to cost 100 months salary and if you don't buy one it's doomed and not true love, sorry I don't make the rules. —De Beers, making the rules

Going to preemptively block some idiots on fedi tonight before they appear on a live stream with JK Rowling and Joe Rogan raising money for TERFs.

Eyes up, sysadmins: upcoming OpenSSL release with high-sev bug fixes drops next week:

We are excited to announce our newest employee: Sage Sharp! Sharp joins Conservancy as our Senior Director of Diversity & Inclusion and will focus on our #Outreachy member project. More details here:

The Process:
-see thing u want
-"holy shit that's expensive i'll just learn how 2 make it myself"
-learn how to make it urself
-"ah, i see now why ppl charge huge amounts of money for this. it's difficult and im bad at it"
-buy one anyway
-still be satisfied with the experience overall bc learning a new skill is not only a fun and fulfilling activity in and of itself, but also helps u grow in other areas And gives u a new understanding and love of the thing u have acquired

Seriously, bro, take that shit back to HELLSITE and the Jacobin editorial office.
