Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid.

A través de mi amigo Max y su newsletter Regios Will Be Regios, me vine enterando que en también tenemos un iceberg de teorías conspirativas y . Entre graciosas, intrigantes, prejuiciosas, atemorizantes e históricas. Algunas de ellas ya vienen xilograbadas en nuestro ser, y las llevamos a todas partes con nosotres.

Playing around with . So far, so fun! It's bringing memories back from what I had learned at the workshop five years ago at Notts Pride. I think then they used to teach and it was connected to synths tho? This is a good re-start. :ground:

I'm not good at many things, but I'm kind of fine at and , particularly in the department. I have a poetry book, called Meanwhile, about people who live in between stages and don't fulfill success standards in regards to migration, sexuality, growing up, bodies and minds.

Looking to get involved in more opportunities and incorporate and as some of my live performances show. Maybe not relying so much with a live band anymore, but more , and guided by a ethos in my practice.

@admin qué tan grande es el espacio que te da Nextcloud? Ahorita tengo 2TB de Dropbox, pero pensando en mudarme a algo más seguro.

Suggestions of creative who use the Fediverse/Mastodon rather than Big Tech socials? I already follow @pluralistic and he's really inspiring my practice. I literally only have Big Tech accounts to share my gigs now. Don't want to rely on that anymore eventually.

@ingenieroscotty “clase media”. Me acuerdo cuando ser clase media sólo implicaba tener un sedán y una televisión por familia. Clase media mis polainas.

@ghost_bird I wish Sara Ahmed joined the Fediverse. She has so much to share.

“To be asked to communicate whether in writing or in person with the person who has harassed you, is to be asked to reopen channels of communication that you closed to protect yourself. The person who abused you is given more chances to express himself.”

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

https://smartsurvey.co.uk/s/gendercensus2021

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

@gatooscuro@mastodon.la otra opción, algo más gringo y actual: Hereditary y Midsommar de Ari Aster. Entre cultos, imágenes hermosamente asquerosas (o asquerosamente hermosas) y tramas que parecen garabatos en libreta de psicólogue familiar.

@gatooscuro@mastodon.la depende de qué es lo que más se te antoje. Si quieres yakuzas oníricos y asuntos muy freudianos, ve Gozu. Si quieres un melodrama disque romántico que termina en tortura de hilo dental (ya verás), ve Audition.

Nota: llevo más de diez años sin ver esas películas y no sé cómo les ha sentado el tiempo, pero en los dosmiles eran la onda en la sección de "arte" devenida a "J-horror" en el videoclub.

@gatooscuro@mastodon.la has visto Audition de Takashi Miike? O mi favorita de él, Gozu.
