My Patreon is up! Also SHAME

Versione italiana qui. My Patreon is up. https://www.patreon.com/loonmartian Finally. After many months of indecision, I resolved to make one. I feel I don’t have much to offer for the moment, unfortunately, but it will come. I have bought the cable I needed and I can finally record from the piano to the computer. So my … Continue reading My Patreon is up! Also SHAME

It’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and I am tired. Literally meant. È la Giornata Internazionale contro la Violenza sulle Donne e io sono stanca. Inteso letteralmente.

(italiani, tradurrò domani. è stato un lungo giorno) So today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and I wanted to write something intelligent but I spent the whole day with my head up in my book – it's coming out nicely folks – so I don't have much energy and … Continue reading It’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and I am tired.

Italians doing weird things abroad: the nativity scene. Italiani che fanno cose strane all’estero: il presepe.

Construction site. I spent a good part of my day cutting wood and burning my fingers with hot glue – because are you even using hot glue correctly if you don't hurt yourself a lot? – to build the hut for my nativity scene. That mossy wall you see by the side is a last … Continue reading Italians doing weird things abroad: the nativity scene. Italiani che fanno cose strane all’estero: il presepe.

Sunday wrap-up. Riepilogo domenicale.

I decided I'm going to post on Sunday all the stuff, or at least the most relevant stuff, that I post on my social media during the week that's way too short to be a decent WordPress post (the stuff. Not the week). Memes, articles, stuff like that. Also knowing me this won't probably happen … Continue reading Sunday wrap-up. Riepilogo domenicale.

I want a Muslim Marilyn Manson. Voglio un Marilyn Manson musulmano.

I wasn't unfortunately able to find out who drew this. Purtroppo non sono riuscita a trovare l'autore. Nella vignetta: "Sul serio, questi estremisti islamici sono abbastanza da far bere un profeta...""Vuoi dei popcorn? Ciccioli di maiale?" I've seen some very bad opinions going around about the matter of Mohammed's caricatures in France, which are often … Continue reading I want a Muslim Marilyn Manson.

Vlog. I bought some second hand books by an author I loved as a child and I am heartbroken. Ho comprato alcuni libri di seconda mano di un’autrice che adoravo da bambina, e adesso ho il cuore spezzato.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE8EJXZwrDo&t=11s Questo appartiene senza dubbio alla categoria "Avventure, disavventure e quotidiane tragedie dei bibliofili di tutto il mondo". Ho pagato cento dollari per mettere le mani su quei libri, capite? Di cui cinquanta erano spese di spedizione. ~ This goes definitely under the category "Adventures, misadventures and everyday tragedies of bibliophiles around the world". I've … Continue reading Vlog. I bought some second hand books by an author I loved as a child and I am heartbroken.

Terrifying dolls. Bambole terrificanti.

After seeing this marvellous picture on the internet, I thought I would give a brief account of my own childhood toys. I had some dolls as a kid, like, the kind of doll that looks like it's a baby. I also had some Barbie dolls. I really liked Barbie dolls, although my favourite toys were … Continue reading Terrifying dolls. Bambole terrificanti.

Fluff

This article is from 21 years ago, and I'm glad to see that back then there was someone with thoughts very similar to mine on the matter. https://newrepublic.com/article/150687/professor-parody?fbclid=IwAR22ey_AF36pOiHL_iQie31LIuvJYwpyquZzgWzamA-Bu-Oln_QK-DnEPwc A bit of context: the article is a merciless criticism of Judith Butler. I found it on Twitter. Apparently, Butler has given an interview and a lot … Continue reading Fluff

I’ve also got chaos dragons. Anch’io ho i dragoni del caos.

I just discovered that Jordan Peterson actually talks about chaos dragons. I had always thought it was a joke, a twist of something else he had said! Nope, it's real. I'm baffled by my own optimism sometimes.Dude! This guy teaches at a University! He's famous, and he's got a truckload of money too, probably. Oh … Continue reading I’ve also got chaos dragons.
