a striking photo of the wild bank building donning its summer coat. its bright coloration conceals its predatory nature; individuals of the genus Argentarius are sessile carnivores like pitcher plants or venus flytraps but preferring large mammalian prey. this "pride-coat" is a recent adaptation, widespread but contained to specific urban microbiomes where the twin pressures of gentrification and hegemonic assimilation are strongest. while this makes the biomes even more riotously colorful than usual, the corporations within are no less dangerous than the rest of the year - they have merely camouflaged themselves to better mimic the world around them!

NSFW artists I cannot stress enough to you that now is the time to make your own website and not rely on corporate social media as your home base
Apple is on a mission to wipe out adult work on every app in it's store and you gotta establish your own space ASAP 👏👏👏

i've been playing stardew valley again and i was looking at mods and i am NOT over the mod that lets you buy the community center rewards

that option is LITERALLY already in the game if you sign up for a joja membership and the whole POINT is that if all you want to worry about is maximizing profit and ease you can align yourself with the capitalist megacorp and the only real downside will be a lack of personal growth through exploration as well as a disconnect from your community

so someone saying "actually i want to be able to focus on profit margins but without any of the negative impacts of capitalism, i just want the forest spirits to recognize the value of money" is just. it's something lmfao.

A group of Black revolutionaries have started an autonomous zone named #OrishaLand in #Austin, #Texas. They've already done a lot to fight #gentrification by organizing material support & political education for the local Black community. It's a real glimmer of hope for what has otherwise been a shitty #BlackHistoryMonth.

ignoring how long that action scene was and how little the amnesia story makes sense when they highlight the reality of digital evidence, there is definitely an implication here that Balem can see her cooch in HD during this gynecological murder scene

THE OPENING LINE IN THIS MOVIE IS "TECHNICALLY SPEAKING I'M AN ALIEN" THIS IS GONNA BE GREAT. Does she mean immigrant? I doubt it; I know nothing abt this movie other than the line "I've always loved dogs" but it's gotta be actual aliens right
