Our crowdsourced list of Women in Generative Art is now online. It's just a starting point, so get in touch if you'd like to be added or have your info corrected. I still need to add mastodon account, and more.
It's looking quite likely that we'll have to move again. We just did this last year. We've been perfect tenants, love the house and our neighborhood, but because of circumstances outside our control, our partner and I will probably have to move again.
Tiny house, dog, quail, garden that Shelby's invested so much in, piano; being uprooted again with no relocation assistance. Dreading it
If anyone knows of good housing opportunities in #pdx with a decent landlord, lemme know.

@arnicas hello! 👋
Did I ever tell you people about Bernd das Brot? It's a show that plays on the German KIKA TV network in the night when they have nothing to broadcast otherwise.
It's a show about the existential crisis of a depressed, sentient loaf of bread living in a blank white universe tormented by robotic arms and a creepy narrator. It's utterly brilliant.
in the spirit of December and also the fact that I was dirt poor this time last year and remembering how much it sucked i couldn't do much to enjoy myself, I wanna get somebody a copy of Smash Ultimate.
