Bonsoir. πŸ‘‹πŸΏ

I'm Joseph. You may remember me from such non-existent programming like:

πŸ“Ί This Queer Black Guy Won't Shut Up About Things
πŸ“Ί 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. 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.

Previously on The Chronicles of Queer.party's Prodigal Son: I cosplayed as Miles Morales for Halloween 2K19 and neglected to tell you all about it because I'm addicted to the Bad Place.

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. soundcloud.com/the-auracle/set

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 people you've never read.γ€€

I want my MTV. Only the real ones know which MTV in particular I'm talking about. πŸ˜‰

cc's @theauracle bc as a Brit he knows knows

As an outsider, I learned about that quick

There's no political blackness bc there's systemic antiblackness in NB-POC communities.

There's no political Blackness bc Black ppl have agency.

It's not a choice.

Halfway there to my destination for the weekend and I'm thinking to myself... goddamn, life is so much better without toxic people in it.

History really is repeating itself out here.

What I'd like to know is why the people advocating in favour of eugenics programs for humans believe they *won't* get culled by said eugenics program.

Truly, I feel like I've been watching turkeys campaign in favour of Christmas.

So this is the culmination of thirty-four trips around the sun.

dirt: if you're a girl online, are you a girl in real life?

Goddess: yes my child :blobhalo:

dirt: and if you're an ass hole online, are you an ass hole in real life?

Goddess: yes my child :blobhalo:

dirt: then surely, if you're popular online, you are popular in real life :blobaww:

Goddess: 😬

Take this, for example. Just a beautiful Saturday afternoon and I didn't have to stray far from my gaff to get this one.

As for the camera itself (Nikon D7500), it's absolutely sensational. Still very early doors and I'm still very much scratching the surface of what this thing can do but I can confirm it's dream to use.

For my first Nikon, this is making a stupendous impression.

Man just walked around Philly after work and got some night shots in.

There's some decent ones but one in particular that I love and can't wait to share.

Can I just say how awesome it is to be doing photography walks again?

Man, I am so happy.

UPDATE: I went with the Nikon D7600. It's refurbished and with a nifty 18-55mm kit lens plus Adorama threw in a deluxe carrying case.

I also got a Blackrapid Breathe Curve camera strap.

I expected it to arrive Saturday but it actually arrives today. 😲 You're all now officially on notice: there will be a lot more photography posting than usual.

Everything TEK.LUN touches turns to flames. Good lord, this is a brilliant flip of one of Rihanna's hardest tracks. soundcloud.com/tekdotlun/consi

Anyway, if you'd like to see some of my photography, EyeEm, Instagram, and 500px are the best places to see some of my work.

You can even buy a print, if you feel like it.
