quick psa about my emoji usage
πŸ’™ : friendly, not romantic
❀ : probably romantic
so, if I toot a blue heart at you, it's not intended as romantic affection. I thought I should clarify that, since some people might feel uncomfortable with hearts being thrown at them.

@lynnesbian I've known this for years but now that you mention it again I'm looking at the name "Windows XP" and I can't read it as anything other than "Windows 😝"

@dartigen When it comes to books, the amount is closer o 15-20%. HOWEVER, there is a very very small profit margin on books going to capitalists. Books require many many many man hours to edit, to lay out, and to bind. You may think you are sounding kind to the author, but the author is NOT the only laborer involved, and all of them are underpaid, too. My agent has spent many man hours editing my book already, and while I make all the changes, it wouldn't be the same book without him.

@shoutcacophony It normalizes exploitation of artist labor on the left and it's fucking bad. "Smash the system!"

No, fucking build another one so I can fucking eat, THEN smash. Or hell, smash and then QUICKLY build another support system.

But don't be some managerial class fuck's son pretending the exploitation of artist labor in and of itself is fucking praxis.

"Intellectual property is theft" is all well and good, but I still need to fucking eat.

There are people who will howl about not getting paid a living wage who won't take steps to ensure the writers and artists whose work they enjoy can afford to eat.

I'm not a corporation. When I write, I retain ownership. My relationship to a publisher isn't employer / employee. So yeah, pirating my work steals food out of MY mouth. Not a corporation. Mine.

So fucking pay me.

Anyone know any certifiably actually good metal sites? Ones that ideally aren't packed to the gills with nazi apologists?

Bonus if they have an appreciation for weird shit+the underground.

Gold star if they have diversity in promotions, genres, styles and demographics of the bands they recommend.

(Also any metal+other music recommendations are always welcome.)
