I've come to a realization.
I am a covert narcissist. I believe that I ought to be a leader. I believe my thoughts could shatter mountains. But I suppose I fail to show it because I assume everyone else is just as powerful, just as potent, given the right opportunity.
I may believe I'm deific, but so is everyone else.
A modern day pantheon of druggies sobbing in dark corners, lovers entangled in their own pains, and caregivers laying down the weak or young to rest.
I gladly worship you all.
This is very important! This is what lies past free software for me. This is a signpost and a warning.
So I'm writing a weird MLP 40k fanfic, which I think has a novel take on the concept. Two chapters so far, 2k words, check it out.
If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things
I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.
The problem with this is twofold:
- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead
- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either
There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

Fiction, mental health
I tend to be most creatively active when laying in my bed in the dark. I also tend to get more depressed at night. I know for sure that these two things aren't connected, but they lead to a deep self criticism of my creative works, and deep insecurity. My already poor record of getting feedback becomes a black hole that pulls in all my fantasies, crushing them.
Raw meat, chicken, food, unskilled cooking
So! Two whole chickens, seasoned with salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, cumin, chili powder. Turned out alright. A little too close to the element because I forgot it needed to be lower. So there's less even cooking, but turned out good! I like the seasonings too. All with olive oil drizzled and rubbed on first so it would stick. Next time, less water in the pan, and further from the top of the oven.
