Sunfell's Digital Zeitgeist Catcher
Since dedicating myself to getting into “superhero shape,” several articles regarding my weight have been brought to my attention. Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met, eating sprouted grains I can’t pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5’3” frame. Losing 14 pounds out of necessity in order to live a healthier life is a huge victory. I’m a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I’d have to part with both arms. And a foot. I’m frustrated with the irresponsibility of tabloid media who sell the public ideas about what we should look like and how we should get there.

My gender expression is varied enough day to day that sometimes I feel like it would be easier if the decision was just taken out of my hands. 

Today I am a non-binary sophisticate otter

Heh. I’m a ‘questioning queerdo cumberbatch’. Didn’t know that ‘cumberbatch’ was an orientation. Disappointed there isn’t a ‘quinto’ in there.

LMAO about the Pinto beans speculating which house ZQ took his latest Instagram photo at.

I love Spock’s outraged glare at being called ‘Pointy’.

The Wall Street Journal:

For about $12, Sprint will soon let subscribers buy a wireless plan that only connects to Facebook.
For that same price, they could choose instead to connect only with Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest—or for $10 more, enjoy unlimited use of all four. Another $5 gets them unlimited streaming of a music app of their choice.
[…]
Other apps might be added in the future, he said. For now, customers can only choose between those four apps, and they’d need a data plan in order to access anything else. The apps were chosen by Sprint because they’re the most heavily used.

So it begins.

Nah. I’ll pay what I am paying now to connect to EVERYTHING. Having the world in your pocket is a cool thing.

That’s interesting. Why would you caution against it for spirit sigils?
(I’ve never used a sigil for a spirit, so I know next to nothing about the hows and whys of it).

Sigils used in the process of evocation - or put on talismans which act as a foundation for the spirit’s actions - are a means of empowerment for the spirit to interact with your life. Marring them, or destroying them, destroys the link between you and the spirit.
Generally, once they’ve been activated, they’re to be hidden in a safe place and kept until the procedure you’ve begun is finished. You certainly want to keep said sigil out of sight of non-practitioners or those uninvolved until the work is accomplished, because while you and the spirit have made a deal, it might choose to act in a hostile manner or obsess an outsider. You’ll typically give a new spirit you’re dealing with a time limit in which to accomplish a task, at which point it will be given something in return (ranging from a piece of art or something like that, or a bottle of good booze, etc.), or if they’ve been deceiving you about what they can/will do, you’ll use the sigil as part of the process of dismissing them and obliterating the link.

The continuing adventures of “Inoni watches Star Trek” — on to The Next Generation!

Aheh, yeah, I cherry-picked TOS episodes and then skipped ahead. ^_^;; Even now I’ll admit I’m not watching everything (found viewing suggestions for the first two seasons of TNG, which I have been led to…

That was harsh. It happened before the Internet, but I still heard the wails of “WTF?!?” from the UK, where I was stationed.

The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
So. Magic. What’s it all about, then? I wonder what you were after when you go into the game. It’s usually something. Something specific that you think is worth taking risks for. Money. Sex. Revenge. Power. Enlightenment. Thinner thighs in thirty days. It’s a long time ago for most of you, I know. Maybe you don’t remember. Fuck, maybe you don’t even want to. But I’ll tell you something for free. At rock bottom, it’s always about the same thing. It’s always about entropy. The Universe is winding down. Things fall apart. The moving finger writes, and what it writes is “Tough shit.” You can’t get something for nothing. Like God said to Adam when he kicked him out of the garden, “Now you’ve got to work for a living.” If there ever was a free lunch, it ended right there. So we push and we pull and we sweat. Putting in a shit-load of energy to get a little back. Third Law of Thermodynamics, right? The one we all love to hate. Cheers. But with magic, it’s different. Or it could be. Case in point — this fine old plonk. How did it get here? Grapes had to ripen. Peasants had to toil. Some plucky kid in Marks and Sparks had to zip a long the aisles with his pricing gun. Lots of effort. Lots of energy. And once it’s gone, it’s gone. When things fall apart — they do not put themselves back together again. But if you ask a demon to bring you some wine — or jiffy some up with a spell — well, you’re cheating the taxman, aren’t you? It comes for free. No grapes. No peasants. No entropy. So here we all are, then. Chasing the earthly paradise. Trying to sneak back into Eden through the back door, because work is for mug punters. You stupid arrogant little shits. We’re not playing fire, — here we’re playing with napalm. There’s a war on and we’re whoring with the enemy for pennies. Innocent people die when we fuck up. And we fuck up all the time. Oh, don’t get me wrong. Eden’s a nice place. I was there a few months back. Left a piece of myself buried in the ground there, for reasons I won’t go into. So I can tell you, God hates our kind most especially. The cheats. The hellblazers. The collaborators. Look — this is what Heaven has to say to the likes of us.

Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.

This is the thing. Women have been doing awesome shit since there was awesome shit to do, we’ve BEEN THERE, if anyone bothered to look.

Oh, they looked. And then maliciously and willfully erased us from the books to keep anyone else from “getting ideas.”

Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.
