Greetings Fediverse, It is good to be here in such as a sea of creativity and brilliance. l am a publisher/editor/writer with a specialization in women beat poets, women's history, Chaucer and Cicero. I try to unredact the history of those who were left out, ignored or edited out. And there are many.

Hello Mastodon art people! I’m Julia, an illustrator and naturalist from Germany. I’ve quit all social media a few years ago because addictive algorithms, ads, infinite scrolling and tracking surveillance were killing my creativity.
Mastodon is likely the last social media experiment I’ll try. Here are some birds for you, because although I’ve left Twitter, I love drawing birds.

self promo (book release), asemic text 

I have a new book out on Aleator Press! aleator.press/releases/wendit- it's a collection of asemic prose poems in a small handmade letterpress edition. the book was generated with code from a nanogenmo project of mine from a few years ago (source available here: github.com/aparrish/word-gan-b)

james did such lovely work with the book design and printing. it was rewarding to work with him and I'm so glad this is finally out in the world!

@drwho There haven't been many cats at SFACC (where I volunteer) lately but I feel like there's always a bunch of dogs. SPCA also seems like they don't have a lot on hand but they do have animals out in foster and ultimately adoptable. You can always check online if you want to make sure you're not wasting a trip sfanimalcare.org/adoptable-ani

Hello fedi

a good friend posed a question that I did not know how to answer

my friend wrote this:

"i often find voice chats inaccessible
is there anyone here who has like, hidden hearing loss? I'm hoping there's like. a small piece of equipment that would help
i do have headphones and they're even good headphones but they don't fix it entirely and neither does turning up the volume"

context is I want to host a voice only monthly event in a discord server

anyone have ideas?

:titrc: is going offline tonight for maintenance. I honestly don't know how long it's going to take, it might be hours or days. If you don't hear from me don't worry (right away) and if I manage to mess it up bad enough you might start seeing follow requests from the new me. That is a worst-case scenario but you never know. I'm going to let this notice stay up to marinate for a while and hopefully get started around 0000PST. Please boost while you can
