As my computer use continues to evolve, it's less and less likely I'll be posting meaningful things here. :(

The current alternative is that I'll be sending out an email broadcast - once public, once for paid subscribers, talking about the various sorta stuff I talk about.

For now, I'll be using Substack, a proprietary service, since they provide the necessarily payment processing without unreasonable overhead.

Since y'all have gotten access to all my rambling without any sort of gate so far, anyone who wants a paid subscription, just DM me your email and I'll hook you up.

Contrasting Bolivian & US elections, looking at Indigenous representation in environmental engineering, the reciprocity of indigenous peoples and bamboo, an interview with the incumbant (Native) poet laureate, and some suggested instagram and youtube content

I have a list of nearly twenty organizations or individuals I want to reach out to directly to offer writing services. Most related to my own interests/identities or who I have interacted with in the past

Really appreciate all the boosts on my last post about freelancing. Can I get a bit more help? do you know any orgs that I could/should reach out to? Especially groups providing needed support/services who could use help putting together new member packet, info pamphlets, news releases, etc.

"The Great Lie is that this is civilization. It's not civilized. It has literally been the most blood-thirsty brutalizing system ever imposed upon this planet. This is not civilization, this is the Great Lie. or if it does represent civilization, and that is truly what civilization is, then the Great Lie is that civilization is good for us." - John Trudell

Public version of my followers-only posting:

Look, a bunch of you are Collaborators and you know it, even if you'll deny it.

Please just unfollow me and block me. If you really need to access my content, so you can abuse and misrepresent it within your kyriarchist "society," sign up for my mailing list. That way, you can still see what I'm saying, but I don't have to see you going off and being friends with Collaborators a breath after saying how good my "all Collaborators are bastards" posting is.

personal note: If you boost this and I recognize you as one of the people who unfollowed me last late-summer because white folk were claiming I was "genocidal" for suggesting folk question civilization, I'mma get in your mentions and ask you to share the story of your changed opinions since then, and ask if you'd like to apologise for taking part in a "cancelling" that resulted in the police coming to my home and smashing up my garden.

(I can believe this place is full of white folk who would dox indigenous queers for criticizing the kyriarchy: what I can't believe is how many people who call themselves an ally do it without even noticing.)

So I'm just gonna take *waves hand at something like 12gb of random trash archive of hacky stuff from past several years of owning a computer*

and churn it all into Lua data and go from there, so at least I'm not like, dealing with multiple copies of the same archived content.

hey @jeroenpraat thanks for the follow but i actually am more active and more likely to respond through email.

So, I ran this command maybe an hour ago? --

openssl dhparam -out /etc/dovecot/dh.pem 4096

...and it's still going.

Should I expect it to be done before the heat-death of the universe?

A percent-complete indicator would be nice, but I guess that's for weaklings.

Kyriarchist violence escalates in Nova Scotia

"This is what the commercial fishermen did with the live Lobster they seized from Mi’kmaq fishermen.

"They dropped it off at the DFO office. They claim this is about 'conservation' if they cared about conservation, they wouldn’t be wasting thousands of pounds of live lobster. This is the most ruthless, disgusting, disgraceful act towards the great creation of life I’ve ever seen. "

60,000,000 gallons of oil sinking between Venezuela and Trinidad

(That's six times as much as Exxon-Valdez)

This is an avoidable disaster

If you can contact your representatives, please do so. This disaster will likely impact most of the Caribbean if not parts of the southern United States too.

This image shows current flows in the Caribbean. The ship is currently between Venezuela and Trinidad.

This is about to become the one of the worst oil spills of the century. The US ambassador to Trinidad has stated that they will not impose sanctions or restrictions on parties looking to assist. looptt.com/content/us-embassy-

We have just days left to prevent this environmental catastrophe.

While this happens, the Venezuelan government denys that any problem is occurring. news.gov.tt/content/trinidad-a

This ship contains 6 times the oil of the Exxon Valdez spill.

This needs international attention and it needs it now.

This is an environmental problem that you, yes you, can directly make a difference with.

I uh... I feel like I'm always saying this: what the shit is with the lack of engagement on my more meaningful posts.

Y'all gripe when I say I'm switching to email but I'd rather have a small audience that gives an equal shit about important and trivial shit than a big audience that only cares about... I don't even know what.

This mastodon instance is dedicated to the survival of indigenous languages, plant knowledge, art, and cultural survival outside of the dominant white supremacist media promoted by colonist cash on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Melg'puguasit; We stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize food. Decolonize medicine. Decolonize housing. Decolonize from corrupt white supremacist networks like Facebook and Twitter. Decolonize the US from its oligarchal form of government! European statues, place names, words, languages, and accounting systems DO NOT BELONG on Turtle Island, and are killing the whole planet. "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as colonial systems continue to sink deeper into broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. .
