Guess who salvaged a raw wood bookshelf off the side of the road today?  Really nice one too!  It just needed a quick wash, barely any dust or cobwebs on it at all.  Solid wood, no back, but well-built and surprisingly light!  Maybe one of the neighbor people made it, and decided they didn't want it anymore?

Anyway, I've given it to Sneak.  I'll get zer a new thing of gel medium or ModPodge  or something, and ze plans to decorate it like ze did the last one.  Ze's pretty psyched!

I feel like a successful big brother today.  Also a successful cheapskate.

On tumblr, I use the tag 'IMPURE OF HEART' to describe that super-gross identity politics all about conspicuously performing virtue.  Someone showed me this filk of the Gravity Falls episode 'The Last Mablecorn,' called Pure Of Heart and I thought folks here might enjoy it.

Man, but I really am not a villains kinda person. In fiction, they get to be stone-cold badasses, puppet-masters and genius psychological manipulators... but in reality, they're such fucking BABIES.

It's berry season!  Me, Mori, and Biff went and picked everything we could reach off the public portions of the mulberry tree and raspberry bushes near our house.  We almost filled a big yogurt container!

DELICIOUS FRESH BERRIES FOREVER! :D

Oh man, I had a total lucky break!

So, we thought we had a dentist appointment today.  Turns out no, their automated texts were wrong, and since no human being actually checked with me, I had no way of knowing that it's actually next week.  Bummer, right?

Except I'm not sad at all, because it meant we got into the radical bookshop when it was open.  Got to do some business, sure, but even better, you'll never guess what I found in their fucking free box!  It was a bunch of queer comics from the old days, the first 21 issues of Hothead Paisan, and the complete series of Tales of the Closet! (I thought that I was missing the last issue, #10, but it turns out it was never printed at all!)

Holy crap!  I gave Hothead Paisan to my roomie and her girlfriend, but I'd wanted to read Tales of the Closet for years, but it's been out of print for ages, near as I can figure.  But now it's mine, ALL MINE!

I can't believe they just had it in a free box!  They had no idea the gold mine they were sitting on, Jesus!

EDIT:  Also I got Jeanine Renne’s Andy Blake book, When a Fan Hits the Shit, from [personal profile] dreamer_marie  today!  Best book day ever?  BEST BOOK DAY EVER.

I realized that Battle the Universe has gotten big enough and sprawling enough to require a 101 page.  So here it is!

Summary: Reggie has a bad day and ends up a costumed vigilante by accident.
Notes: This was the original story the whole BTU series (not to mention its name) spawned from; notes on the series’ evolution at bottom. It was sponsored by the Patreon crew!


Reggie’s brother had died just before the election results went public. The two events were always entangled in his mind, especially as the years progressed. He remembered the glass in his hand, the taste of the cola, the sound of his father’s voice choked up over the phone. He remembered being numb, confused, unable to understand the old man’s words, and sitting down at the TV out of sheer habit. And he remembered seeing the news on the pixelated old screen, the new president smiling and glad-handing with the other suits.

The phone call was an earth-shattering shock; the election was not. Forever afterward, Reggie would be perplexed by anyone who felt otherwise. Of course the universe (or the country, at least) would take a sharp right turn for the worse, without Kevin. What else could he expect?

Hey guys, I got some new folks who joined up recently, so I'm gonna forward y'all to the Big Dreamwidth Multi Introduction Post and remind everyone that it's open unto perpetuity!  If you want to keep an eye on it without manually checking it over and over, you can track it by by clicking the little bell icon directly underneath the post body. (You can see an example of it on this post too--it's the little bell at the far right right at the bottom of this post, right under the post body and just above the words 'Reply.')

If you track it, you will get an inbox message (and/or email) whenever someone new comments, so you'll know when the party's starting up again!

Have fun and play nice all y'all!

Okay, so for Zyfron and Mystics’ stag party, pre-wedding, we went bar-hopping.  Both us and Zy were on the wagon for the night, but that’s fine, because the first bar had something way more awesome to do:

IT HAD A MECHANICAL BULL.

Zy and Mori made a solemn pact to see who would last longer while riding.  They each did three rounds.  The result: A TIE!  We still have bruises on our thighs, and of course I drew it all (and other members of the bridal party took video, which I’m sure will end up SOMEWHERE at some point).

Drunk Alaskans, by the way, are the BEST audience.  I highly endorse riding the bull at the Gaslight in Anchorage any day of the week.  Mori says that between the bull, the poledancing stage, and the jukebox, she has experienced everything she’d ever want to in a bar.

Had an awesome time. Made a 30-page travelogue comic about the trip. Got to watch Zyfron and Mystics get married. Saw moose and eagle and did not get eaten by bears. Very good, much fun. Ate reindeer.

God, we’ve known Zyfron ten years! Whaaaaaat? They were the big name behind healthymultiplicity.com for years; we were the johnny-come-lately so it seems funny that folks see it as our site now. (Don’t worry, I badgered them to do some stuff again. We’ll see if they do!) Due to reasons that likely aren’t my place to say, much of the Gemini archive has been lost. If any of you guys downloaded and saved any of it before then, it’d be a huge boon to us.

Pulled an all-nighter, then didn’t get in until 3 AM due to flight delays. We are wicked sleep-deprived and blurry slurry right now.

We will be out of town until Sat. June 24th!  Likely no internet.  See you when we're back!

We were well enough to go to our neighborhood Pride block party!

I found a nice shady un-crowded spot near the entrance and the ATM and did free queer tarot readings for folks, using my Thea's Tarot deck, a radical lesbian feminist deck from a local! :D I did maybe a dozen readings, and some of them gave me money.  It let me meet all sorts of new people and chat with them and share this little hint of local queer history with them!

And I got a purple hoodie from a yard sale!  A past owner sewed yellow spikes and purple wings on it, so it is now my SPYRO THE DRAGON HOODIE!  I can't believe I found it for two bucks!

What a great Pride.  And Biff had a great time too!

We found a book in the library, Working Like Dogs: The Service Dogs Guidebook, by Marcie Davis and Melissa Bunnell.  This book is concise, informative, and I feel it'd be helpful for anyone wanting to learn about service dogs, whether for themselves or a writing project.

Making a post for our own reference later, should we ever forget and wish to return to this title.

I accidentally found a Thea's Tarot deck at a garage sale for a dollar today!  Apparently it is kind of hard to find and buy now.  I'm excited!  I like it.

I just realized that even though I CREATED a commissions info thing, I never actually posted it. No wonder folks don't realize I'm open for commissions. So here it is: How To Commission LB!

lb_lee: Biff, a brown, frizzy-haired guy with freckles. (biff)
You know, these days I wonder if the reason Biff hates all sci-fi and fantasy is just that he's never gotten over Back to the Future.

On the plus side, I can easily revive all the memories of his most annoyed child schoolyard days just by shouting, "HEY MCFLY" at him.
