i want to play a game but not any of the ones i'm currently playing which means it's time to revive my unplayed game list thread
the rule is i play at least 20 minutes of every game in my library in alphabetical order!
last time i didn't buy any new games for myself until i had reached M, this time i'm not going to set an ultimatum but i would like to get to S and maybe i'll do something fun when i get there like finally upgrade my gpu possibly
i did buy a couple games and acquire a few since last time so i'm gonna toss in the cyberpunk bundle from itch and then we'll be good to start again at the top
new #introductions post for a new instance
hello, i'm ebeth! i'm a former public #librarian living in southeast michigan with a husband and two cats (anya and naito)
i'm agender and go by any pronouns - gender is not something that i inherently hold, so however you want to address me is fine with me!
one more point i want to make is that it's really weird to have a non black person refer to my hair as "dreads" because of the direct root of where it comes from. especially white people. you're using the exact same wording as your ancestors that enslaved mine. try to just call them "locs." it feels a lot better to hear that from a white person/non black person and it makes you sound like you actually understand the history of the wording.
so it's extremely disrespectful to see a non black person with their hair "matted" calling them dreadlocks. how do you claim to be woke at all about anything if you intentionally chose a hairstyle that literally means "fuck white people" ??????? from the point of view of slavery????????
when black people first started wearing our hair in dreadlocks intentionally, it stood as a direct symbol of black pride and anti white supremacy. since we knew the white people thought it was horrible, we wore it to reclaim and have pride for the beauty of what our hair can do. it's interesting, now, that having dreadlocks still bothers white people to the point where we're barred from jobs, told to cut them in schools, and expected to upkeep them in eurocentric ways.
covid, wedding, +
went to an absolutely gorgeous zoom wedding this morning - the couple went out to the woods with just the two of them plus their household bubble (and very cute household dog) and streamed the ceremony for everyone
short, lowkey, pandemic-safe, and their friends and family still got to watch them make their vows to each other
anyway i've been wearing necklaces again and i just got a necklace from drop dead & wrought and i'm excited for it
every time i go to buy some cool goth shit i'm like "ugh gotta google everyone first to make sure they aren't huge racists" and then i remember this list and go here instead
posting this big list of black-owned goth brands again because i keep continually coming back to it and it's such a good resource: https://stephano.me/blog/black-owned-goth-brands-list/
wrestling, looking for one specific match, plz boost if you have wrestlefriends
Hey, if anyone... ~happens~ to have a recording of Lio Rush vs Jay Lethal at Supercard of Honor 2016, would you mind shipping that to me? It's my favorite match, and I haven't watched in forever since it got taken off DailyMotion.
one of the stickers on my waterbottle was starting to peel so i swapped it for these two
