I made a new little website / gemini capsule:
It's kind of like a non-interactive text adventure set in a small town. Every day it randomly generates changes to the town, so check back every once in a while to find new things. It's isn't super big right now, but I hope to add more places/things/people over time.
(feel free to boost)
I finally got around to finding a new home for my dream journal: @montagsdreams
There are no new dreams there yet, but hopefully I'll have a few in the next couple days that I can actually remember.
I just launched a new art project in the form of a Mastodon bot that will slowly tell a story over the course of three weeks by posting a drawing every day. You can follow it at @dailystory
The bot post the first image on Monday April 12 and post a new image everyday at 6 pm UTC (as long as nothing breaks).
I hope you all enjoy it.
I've decided to move over to @montag so I can be on the same instance as a lot of my friends.
This account will stay open and I'll still get notifications for it, but my new posts will be at the new account, so go follow me over there!
advice for new users, birds
For those that are migrating from Twitter to Mastodon, I just want to say that we do things very different around here. Instead of having a bird for a mascot it's a mastodon. Now you might be thinking "What's a mastodon? Those haven't been around for more than a 100 years. I've never seen a mastodon before". Which is understandable since you've probably seen birds before. Lots of people have seen birds because they fly around a lot and sometimes make noise so you know they're there. Some people even make friends with birds. There are lots of birds in my neighborhood and sometimes I see them climb into my neighbors' dryer vents. I think they live in there.
Just want to clear up some confusion and let everyone know that @TheGibson is not a fed. His role as a Cyber Agent in the Netwar of 2068 was for an independent contractor only loosely connected the United Internetional Goverweb and was mostly only of an advisory nature anyway. Don't listen to any rumors trying to connect him to telluric current hacks during the October electro-skirmishes.
Researching this it's really interesting to see how different artists view the ocean differently. In "Lu Over the Wall" the water is green and translucent like old wavy glass. In "Ponyo" it's a deep blue and it either has a calm gradient that reminds me of a Japanese print or it's literally coming to life and grasping at the shore with thick and clumsy fingers.
I was trying to look up screenshots from Studio Ghibli movies but a lot the results are the same promotional art over and over or fan art, which is nice but not what I'm looking for. Then I remembered they have this page with a bunch of them: https://www.ghibli.jp/info/013409/
