idea for a game in which you accept a magical potion that turns you into a living fursuit who much survive by draining the life force of its wearers. I call it... 

This tuba player is really shredding. Somehow.

This is the weirdest bar band I’ve been subjected to this week.

Two guitars and a tuba playing mariachi music.

Incidentally I haven’t lived in a farming town in 15 years and this is pervasive smell is all too familiar.

Anyway the film shoot is over and I had some fun chats with the videographer about gear. And here is one last photo from the venue. Moo.

Spud just asked “what the hell am I doing here? I have a master’s degree in architecture from Harvard for crying out loud.” I showed him this thread.

The videographer just referred to me as “she” though, and he’s about as old as the farmer, so now I don’t know what to think. But the again he drove in from Spokane and they actually have a queer community.

Blehhh kindly old farmer just asked me about the video editing process and then told Spud, about me, “Be nice to this man, he has so much work ahead of him” and we both just kinda grimaced.

I mean I even bothered to wear makeup today what the hell ugh

On the minus side most folks here are misgendering me and my business partners are just like... avoiding pronouns for me. But this is Trump country, so probably smart. Even though they’ve seen my glamour shot in the company brochure and such. Mehhhh.

Oh yeah the farmer said he took an opportunity to tour one of the data centers here and he was amazed that so many people would bother to store all the photos that they were never going to look at again. He saw it as pretty wasteful, and well, he isn’t wrong...

Anyway I technically didn’t have to come on this trip but I figured it’d be fun to take a vacation day and tag along. So far I’m happy with that decision.

My favorite interaction today: a kindly old beef farmer was telling me about the fact there are THREE fiber backbones that converge here, and when I asked about the bitcoin thing:

“Oh, I don’t know anything about the technology behind it but it sure sounds like a Ponzi scheme to me.”

I thanked him and told him he was smarter than the people who think they know anything about it.

“So what are you doing in Quincy?” you might ask.

Remember that AR company I am part of? We have a gig to produce a mixed-reality app for their farming museum. And the local high school class is now here to record parts for the live action portion.

Quincy, WA is a weird city. On the one hand it’s a tiny farming town of 7000 people. On the other hand it’s got some of the most massive data infrastructure anywhere, and between that and cheap hydro power they’ve had to place a moratorium on bitcoin miners coming to town.


PSA: you probably can't redefine your gender to avoid the effects of the patriarchy.

Queer Party!

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
