Hello! I'm Magpie, 29-year-old Brit, and I started making stickers in October after losing my job to The Global Situation Right Now. I'm hoping it can be at least a self-sustaining project, but it doesn't hurt to dream big so please follow for my meteoric rise to fame and subsequent replacement of Sanrio as Earth's biggest producer of little cute things :p
Unfriendly reminder that western countries have been built on land theft, colonisation, genocide and slavery, which created generational wealth gaps that are only getting worse and that the only looters are billionaires and politicians, have a good day.
but forreal if you;re black and nb (especially if you;re already following me) follow the group @blackEnbys
migrazioni e respingimenti, rotta balcanica
«“RiVolti ai Balcani” chiede l’immediato e urgente intervento di istituzioni europee, internazionali e locali nell’area di Bihać, e una soluzione di sistema a lungo termine che assicuri a migranti, richiedenti asilo e rifugiati il rispetto dei diritti umani fondamentali».
Djamila Ribeiro: «La mancanza di responsabilità per i processi di colonizzazione fa sì che l’Europa si presenti quale luogo civilizzato, continente sviluppato e intoccabile, ma a che prezzo è stato costruito tutto ciò?».
Anyone here hosts a #bookwyrm instance ? I don't know if I want to host one myself (I already host too many things), but I'd be willing to pay a couple euros monthly for the hosting.
Quelqu'un ici héberge une instance #bookwyrm ? J'ai pas trop envie d'en héberger une (j'ai déjà trop de trucs), mais je pourrais payer une paire d'euros pour aider aux frais d'hébergement.
plea for remittances
Sunday bedtime sucks, wage slaving ahead. By the way, fellow #locationlucky workforce participants still enjoying full wages: Make do with less, like the people on furlough, and send the difference as #remittances to friends in countries without Covid palliatives. Please. It’s also fun not to behave like capitalism says we should. Try & enjoy. No overseas friends yet? Come on, that’s what the internet was invented for. Be creative. You can do it!
"If The World Was Created By A Programmer"
The last panel had me in tears 😂
special kind of mood
It only happens once a year or so, but #cave, as we say in my profession, here comes my occasional urge to react to whatever attracts my attention on screen, instead of go find my keyboard, my standard response to a restless mood. Apologies to anyone inconvenienced by this outburst. Promise it won’t last.
fiction, need I say more + solidarity
Meanwhile, project #remitauncle has been running for 6 months, at a rate of 600 €/month. Not much, by global standards, but a pile of cash for me, and for the recipients in Lagos who rather appreciate their Covid hardship bonus. Feels cool, to cheat capitalism by sending the money where it is needed. Beats politics.
On the job, everybody in home office, on full wages: What’s that horrible noise, impossible to work like that... (upstairs neighbor redecorating, power drill noise sort of disturbing teams meeting)
In the private inbox: If Covid restrictions go on, I might as well close shop. Own this old hut, won‘t sleep up under the bridge, but...
On my twitter feed: Shit, buddy, without the remit we wouldn’t be eating, working have the usual hours and wages overdue since May...
mainstream social media
It has all been said before by wiser contributors than me, in more sophisticated terms, but it still sucks: I have mostly to go #twitter to make friends with interesting people. Interesting as in living in non-OECD countries, working in minimum wage manual and service jobs, engaged in very different lifestyles... The fediverse often feels like a very special kind of privileged echo chamber.
