New account, new attempt at an #introduction, I guess
I'm someone who would like #reading, #drawing/creating #art and #writing, particularly in #fantasy and other speculative genres, but between dayjob, trying to keep my home livable, and mental health issues, I mostly just watch video. In addition to fantasy I like #scifi #movies and #series, including #animation.
I unscrewed the lid from the squeeze bottle, and got some of the goop out with a palette knife, and thinned that with water to brushable paint. And I added more water to the bottle, and stirred a bit, and now it's on my desk and I'll try to remember to shake it up every now and then.
Let's see what happens...
So I got some Black 3.0 paint.. last year? in 2018? from a kickstarter, anyway, and didn't do anything with it.
I also have a piece of particle board with one semi-shiny black side, which I sometimes use as photo backdrop (when I take photos not on my desk)
So I thought I'd finally use the paint to make an extra-matte, extra-black photo backdrop.
Bit of a problem was that the paint could barely be squeezed out of the bottle, it had thickened so much.
Okay, I just had something very strange happen with #Firefox.
I was on a webpage, and the entire content of the page "fell off", in an animated fashion. Like a piece of fabric dropping away, leaving behind a black background.
Hitting back and going to the page again does not result in the same issue.
Note that I didn't touch anything except my mouse wheel before this happened and it wasn't a page with any obvious special effects. I have no idea what to search for to check for info.
I'm trying to use toggl to log how much time I spend on things. Not sure how to organise creative stuff yet, but eh. The idea point that got me to actually do it was to keep track of how much time I spend on looking for ebooks to hoard, and on sorting my Calibre library, and then go and spend at least that much time actually reading...
tips for tolerating fireworks for folks who don't like 'em (OK to RT)
It's that time of year again in the US when knuckleheads show their support for veterans by doing stuff that disturbs anybody with PTSD. Tips:
* wear earplugs or ear defenders
* you can help cover noises with tv, a radio, a fan, or a white noise generator, and by keeping your house closed
* if you feel shook up, it helps to have deep pressure, like from a weighted blanket. talking to somebody really helps, so don't be shy about calling a friend or a crisis hotline. bonus if you can make a deal with somebody to talk to you even pretty late at night.
* keep pets indoors so they don't get scared and run away
