time to once again tell the story of the dude in my geometry class in high school who, before each lecture, would take a Pepsi bottle out, uncap it, allow the green anole inside to run up his arm to his shoulder, and put his head down and nap. the anole would just stay on his shoulder the whole time until he woke up and returned it to the bottle. he aced all his tests so the prevailing theory was that the lizard took notes for him

acryla gouache: for when the horrifying expense of normal gouache Just Isn't Enough

'“Let's buy a bar together” or “Let's buy land and move to the country and raise our kids together” are common refrains among urban-dwelling 20somethings, but very few people actually do it. I wish these interests were taken more seriously, and that we encouraged each other to act upon them, rather than thinking of them fondly as the whims of young people before reality hits.' I mean, kind of? But also, not starting an actual commune isn't, like, a failure of your friend group?

@Ventronik The market relies on an idea of ownership of art that in some ways echoes legal intellectual property (exchange of money for explicit licensing from art creators for specific kinds of use/distribution, such that violation can be DMCAed) and in some ways... does not (en.wikifur.com/wiki/Species#Cl).

@Ventronik I'm an outsider to both scenes, but I think it's a really interesting fact that NFTs are replicating something, Do-X-But-With-Crypto style, a kind of collectible art that has been a big deal in furry/furry-adjacent art circles for years. (This means that it is both more and less scammy than the prima facie analysis of "but I can download this just like anyone else?")
