(last?)

The last of the bullet points in my profile is one of the hardest to outline. Ludomantic Witchcraft is a theory I have been slowly assembling, the work of which I hope to share here as it develops. Simply put, I love games, almost as much as I love music. From the incredibly simple to the obnoxiously complex, simple acts with cards, dice, boards, pawns, et al. allow us to interact with what one might call fate or fortune. Rule sets are rituals. I have experiments and ideas to share.

I also make mixtapes! It's been a minute since I've done so, but I hope to start up again in the near future.

Here's a link: mixcloud.com/hexwren/

All that's currently posted are what I call Community Mixtapes, done for the queer gaming discord I often hang out on. Everyone who signs up submits 3 tunes, and I pick 1 out of every set and string a tape together from them. I'll be going back to these soon, and am looking to see how Community Tapemaking works on the fediverse.

I am a terrible music nerd. I will often speak in obscure references, suggest records you may never have heard of, and generally go nuts for good tunes. I consider myself an amateur pop music historienne.

However, if there's one thing I've learned in learning all I have about music, it's that there is always more to learn and to listen to. I absolutely want to hear what you're into and what is missing from my rotation. I love nostalgic sounds, but I don't want to be defined by them.

I do many things, and this account is here to share them with you! I also hope to get more social with the fine folx of this instance, but as I work nights and sleep days, it's going to be a work in progress.

One of the things I do is write! I work mainly in prose, which is occasionally smutty, because I am occasionally a crass person. Any 18+ work will be labeled as such.

I have also begun writing my first computer game! As of "now," I am maybe 10% of the way to a finished product.

Hi! I'm Hex, or Wren, whichever you feel is best, it's all me. I like birds and bird puns, hence the name.

This is an account where I will be mostly posting the end result of Work. There will be personal elements, of course, but this isn't a personal/vent/AD/etc account. I'll have more (pinnable) introductory posts to describe what those are coming up soon, but in the meantime, I'm going to post something we can interact with while I go to my mundane job on the other side of the city.

I know there possibly can't be a good answer for this 

who decided it was okay to wear bedroom slippers outside/into the office

did it to myself 

hand sanitizer on a paper cut

twice

thinking about metric and imperial again 

metric really needs a measurement of length similar to the foot.

measuring people in meters is pointless (you can describe like 90% of adults as between one and two meters) and in centimeters, you get into the problem of the brain not being good at delineating large numbers. I can picture the difference between 5'6" and 6'0". 160 and 180 centimeters, not so much. units of ten centimeters might work, but even metric countries don't touch that divisor, and they'd probably have to adopt it first

not sexual, but wow, I am totally playing up the innuendo 

really need to get deeper into hard girls

(they're a band. go listen to "the quark" or "puddle of blood")

people getting busy in burger king bathrooms worldwide taking their hats off

(I'm not even trying to dunk on the guy, he was great and never got his due)

ugh, trying not to get negative, and yet 

this flesh is a prison

considering a mixtape of songs of wanting

i want to see the bright lights tonight
i wanna be adored
now i wanna sniff some glue (or i don't wanna go down to the basement or like thirty other ramones songs)
i want you
i want you to know
i want you to want me
i want out
i want to hold your hand
etc

might fuck around and design an incredibly complex setting and not actually do anything with it

physical injury (minor) 

gave myself the least damaging paper cut possible - it's like a centimeter long, but only a few millimeters of it are bleeding (and they're not even dripping, there's just a bit of red color about halfway across)

but it itches like a motherfucker, and I can't really scratch it without probably making it worse

someone get my continuity editor on the phone, this narrative arc is garbage

people should link me cool queer shit to put on my jacket. it needs to be a lot gayer so I don't look like I'm trying to cosplay patrolling the mekong delta

have you ever wanted to replace a phone because of how lousy the headphone jack is? that's where I'm at right now: having to reseat the plug every few minutes, because it keeps falling out.

work, this is only going to get worse, isn't it 

mandatory overtime has been raised from eight to twelve hours per week starting next week.

if you're wondering why I'm not making good posts it's because i don't want to just completely fill your timeline with A BLOO BLOO BLOO

just saw a Canadian stamp with the queen on it and it's the most sharklike photo of a human being I've ever seen, it's wild

possibly inaccurate but it sounds good 

realizing that heartache is probably just horny people stressing themselves out to the point of anxiety chest pains over relationships that probably don't deserve it

these two posts are verbally related but not topically related

further advances in genderfluidity may require the creation of better containers in which to conform one's volume to

Show thread

hm. I'm conforming too much. perhaps i should be less fluid

sometimes i hop on mastodon with an idea for a post, but then before I can write it, I find myself scrolling up to catch up on the timeline, forgetting what I read going to write about, then scrolling back down in hopes that I can visually jog my memory with what I was supposed to be there for in the first place
