This feels very 1999

I'm starting a blog again, not on LiveJournal, not on Tumblr, just retreating to my own page to make a blog. I'm calling it a blague so I won't take it too seriously.


I've been blogging weekly for just the Patreon Patrons, the hardy few Phooligans who make it possible for me to have time to make things for everyone, for many years now. I feel like I want a place to post things for a wider audience, but I am having a more and more difficult time coping with creating free "content" for platforms that help fascists be more fashy. I know my web hosting platform has its own ethical crisis.


Maybe someday I'll be able to host all of this myself and won't have to stress about whether my hosting fees are supporting apartheid on the other side of the world.


Here is a picture of me, in the PhooleOut Shelter, with Angelo the Cat, with a nervous and uncertain smile on my face.
