Maybe 2019 will be the year that I finally get some of that new material done. Maybe 2019 will be the year that the solo album that I've been working on for the last six years will get finished.
Maybe. Until then, you're just going to have to make do with these tracks. https://soundcloud.com/the-auracle/sets/the-troubadour
I have contributed so much of my time, prose, and energy to Media Diversified. I'm honoured to not only have watched MD grow to what it is today but humbled to have been part of its growth. Now MD needs help in the way of finding to go further.
It would be awesome if you all could either help support and/or share this far and wide. Either way, it'd mean the world. Thank you. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mediadiversified/media-diversified-funding-a-new-era-of-writers-of
So I thought I'd spread the word about an anthology on bisexuality that I contributed a personal narrative to. It's called The Bi-ble. Published by the amazing Monstrous Regiment (an indie publishing house ran by two wonderful queer women out of Edinburgh) and it might be the most important book on bise #bisexual people you've never read.

I'm Joseph. You may remember me from such non-existent programming like:
📺 This Queer Black Guy Won't Shut Up About Things
📺 OMG You're Such A Dork
I'm once again expatriate (originally from the UK) having moved to the States for another long-term stint. Husband to an equally queer af and infinitely more awesome wife. Father to the most phenomenal girl in the world.
I'm very much a jack-of-all-trades/human Swiss Army knife so feel free to inquire.

So I turned 33 yesterday.
Also: British TERFs getting flown out to meet with denizens of the American reactionary & Christian evangelical right-wing to discuss how to *checks notes* push their transphobic ideology more effectively is definitely something a perfectly reasonable person would do and totally isn't emblematic of, say, a fascist.

I plan to add even more services such as email, Pixelfed, etc as I get more funding. I want people to have as much value as they can for every penny the contribute to the Play Vicious Four project and give them the ability to control their online selves in every capacity.
Every contribution I get gets me closer and closer to that goal.
PV is growing Show more
So I just added a Nextcloud (https://cloud.playvicio.us/) instance to the growing Play Vicious infrastructure, which is really exciting. It's not open to the public just yet, but it's proving to be a very useful piece to the platform.
This is already in addition to this place and Code, my Git repo solution where I'm building Fipamo(https://code.playvicio.us/Are0h/Fipamo), which will be my custom blog framework when it's done.
The work has been hard, but it's really starting to come together.
And, on top of that, this analysis in today's Guardian is on point:
"As for the EU [...], they have played their side of the Brexit drama very well so far, combining the German talent for Gründlichkeit (thoroughness) with the kind of Cartesian precision that embodies the best of France. All through Brexit, the European side has been radically transparent and admirably disciplined while staying unfailingly polite."
And a vote of no confidence on top of that... Adding insult to injury or Twisting the knife both apply.
The irony, of course, is that both Pro- and Anti-EU joined together to shoot down May.
I think she was a completely incompetent PM. I simply dread who is going to replace her.
Either way, this is not going to make things easier for the UK.
UK politics, Brexit Show more
Today was a BIG day in politics.
May's #Brexit deal proposition was voted down by 432 votes to 202 in parliament just now - the largest defeat for a sitting government in history.
Jeremy Corbyn (Labour party leader) is tabling a vote of no confidence in the government, which would result in a general election if it succeeds.
If the vote of no confidence fails, the Conservatives stay in charge and we might delay Brexit or leave without a deal.
As far as I understand if nothing more happens we will get hard-brexit. However following might be possible:
1) Commision softens and opens new negotiations;
2) MP get scared and formally announce they remain (EU tribunal decided that they can;
3) Hard brexit happens;
4) New referendum (and Commision said it would agree to extension.

I said this to the Mrs last night and I stand by it: it really feels like Vince going "Fine. FINE. You want Wimmenz tag belts again?! Here ya go."
The most flippant design decision ever and why, oh WHY, are the belts modeled behind sodding Alexa Bliss' gimmick aesthetic?
No no no no. Not feeling it.

All right. I think it's time to let me get this out after seeing it.
The "new" Women's Tag Team championship belts are, in fact, hideous. You can't debut those after every other championship for the men and the women have been gorgeous. It's not Butterfly Divas belt bad but it's bad compared to the drop dead gorgeous NXT UK Tag Team Championship and the Women's UK Championship belts.
