First time back on the ice tonight. Felt better than I expected, given my age and 13 month hiatus. Man, I needed this. It's a kind of high that I don't get from anything else.

Planning on making some quote posters in the coming days (and not just of my own writing!) ;P

[VIDEO] I was back on the YouTube show Paradigm Shift. We had a wide-ranging discussion about populism, progressivism, Joe Biden's presidency so far, culture wars, ranked-choice voting, and Andrew Yang's NYC mayoral campaign.

Just accidentally (and apparently irretrievably) deleted a folder of half-written essays in Deviant Art's sta.sh. They were no good — most had been sitting in there for years, but it annoyed me all the same. Just wanted to say fuck you to Deviant Art for not having a trash can system where deleted files could be undeleted, and for designing a system where you can highlight one item, but somehow delete one on the row beneath it instead. A chickenshit platform that 100% deserves the backslide into irrelevance it has experienced in the past couple years. I hope you've been enjoying being the internet's home base for furries and crappy drawings of 60,000 ton women eating people. Helluva legacy.

I've migrated the essay "The Rise and Fall of Donald Trump" to my Substack. It's no longer on DA. https://americandreaming.substack.com/p/the-rise-and-fall-of-donald-trump

Very interesting art page, love it!

It's been a day or two since Biden's victory. How are you feeling? =D

The initial jubilation has certainly worn off. How about you?

Still celebrating. It felt like anything is possible now.

I'm happy for your mood. :)
