  • i knit a dog toy out of fancy pencil roving. i am happy about how pretty the colors are (it's why i bought the roving originally) and i'm happy anticipating the fun times i'll have with Leela. i'm also pleased that i was able to get over myself and use the roving instead of hoarding it against some "more worthy" project.


  • i gave some AU Marvel/AU Potterverse crossover fanfic a try, and it was delightful. someone in my circle recommended it, and i left it unread in an open tab for days. thanks!

  • this rare SFW Oglaf comic


  • i've been reading Code Name Verity to C before bed. he's well and truly hooked, and he's caught on to spoilery things well before i did when i read it. it's such a pleasure listening to him try to puzzle it out.

    archiving digital content is tough and expensive. more support for my belief that we're living in an era that future historians will consider a dark age due to no recorded culture surviving.

    this playlist is amazing and I love it .

    i think multiple people rec'd it today, but i failed to take note who.
    thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    this is an entire mashup album of Star Wars and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts
    Club Band. it is in the heart of [personal profile] ironymaiden's venn diagram.

    enjoy before someone decides to take it down. (it certainly is a
    transformative work, but you know how that goes.)
