In 2021 im rebooting Tea Jay's Garden with a keen focus on providing evidence based information, free culture, and delving into organizing and mutual aid. It starts with:

SO: Sea Shanties are popular on tiktok right now

Things don't happen to me. I'm a thing that happens to people.

And I wholly endorse this approach of happening to people.

I have no further context on this but here's an interesting tidbit about bad politics at Baker Creek seeds:

I love reading their catalog but was already not planning to order from them b/c (0) a lot of their varieties are kind of marginal in my climate, (1) they don't provide good info on their seeds (days to maturity, germination temp, etc.), (2) the one time I did order from them, one of my packets contained the wrong species.

Since the PR to remove Gab's block is getting some traction again I stated a bit more clearly my position here.

(please don't swarm the discussion, I'm just posting it here so that my position will be clearly known)

Also, I'm working on a blog post (since some time in fact) to state more in depth the reasons that made me do this, and to talk on various subjects around it.
I hope it will be ready soon. 😉

Going to reiterate this again:

Companies do not want your free labor. They only want you to be a fan on their own terms.

Nintendo does not want your fan-made creations. Period. Stop giving them free labor.

The only safe way to create things in Nintendo's universes is with a signed contract. Everything else is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

We’re all familiar with free libraries, right? Meet free blockbuster video. Perfect for dropping burned DVD’s that you torrented off the innerwebs into, I mean, erm donating your legitimately purchased movies you not longer watch now that streaming has become a thing.

Is getting a 4 yr degree actually useful when your pushing 40? Like am i just getting myself into crushing debt for a paper vanity plate.

If you asked me when I was a kid what I wanted to be it would mostly have been a botanist when it wasn't an astronaut.

A comrade in Richmond, Virginia just launched a kickstarter for his food sovereignty project- already doing tons of work and tons of food grown for mutual aid. Check it out, share WIDELY, and if you’re able/inclined, throw a few bucks towards a Black led food sovereignty project

Whoever first came up with the idea that dish detergent (its not soap) was a handy DIY gardening tool should be fed to enraged wallabies...

Fetishizing revolution is literally how cryptofascists play leftists. Defending fascists is always a shit take.

Covid safe LARP: Hacker Larp. You all play shutin hackers and phone phreaks from the 1337 days, hacking the evil Macrohard corporation.

My winter is coming along fine. Well what passes for winter here in Bakersfield anyways.

Zero-sum radical internet-leftism is exhausting.
