New server, new .

I'm Hugh. I live in south-west with my partner and children. I work as a web developer, and contribute to .

I make occasionally. I've played bass in bands, but mostly I compose weird music solo on a computer. I contributed a track to the second A Whale's Lantern compilation by musicians of Mastodon, collaborating with Mascha.

I speak some , and less .

[Boris Johnson sits alone on the floor of his darkened office. Before him, in a rough circle, rolled-up ยฃ50 notes stand in the cracks between the floorboards. He strikes a match, and lights them one after the other.]

BJ: Oh Mummy, they're all calling me a names. A clown! A prick! A wet wipe! What am I to do?

Vengeful Ghost of Margaret Thatcher: You are a Tory. Do what we Tories do best: Destroy them. Crush their insignificant lives and sell the dust off cheap.

BJ: Yes, of course. But, I mean, how can I convince people they're wrong, that I'm not a cockwaffle?

VGoMT: [looming closer, a hideous expression that could be rage or glee flaming in her rotted eyes] Alexander, they aren't the least bit wrong. You are an insult to wet wipes. I have scraped better Prime Ministers than you off the sole of my shoe.

BJ: But, Mother...

[The last banknote burns out in a curl of smoke. Boris Johnson is alone.]

Is anyone playing ? Got a friend code I could use?

If anyone wants my code, it's 7WC9-4NAF-SF22.

Find out what happens in this dark comedy set at a book store in Seoul where Ivey Condon, a depressed retired police chief (Kim Kardashian) dresses in a teletubby costume and stalks Cherry Cummings, a stoner ferret (Solange) in order to impress her childhood sweetheart.

hey writers/readers: is fictional non-fiction a thing? Like a story or book that's a field guide to plants on an alien planet, or a history textbook about the zombie wars, or an instruction manual for a time machine.

Is it weird I don't really want to read about people and their struggles, I just want to read about sci-fi stuff without the human drama element? When I'm reading sci-fi I'm like "enough of this character development, tell me about how the spaceships work"

Let's get a thing going today! I'd like to support some musicians, artists, and other folks who make and sell things online.

Maybe with the hashtag #IMadeThese ?

So what do you make? Where can I buy it?

Big news!
I finally uploaded my Semester Project to Itch!
ayior.itch.io/chimarena
Inspired by #Pokemon and #Spore you can breed your own Chimera and then battle with it for a spot in the leaderboard!
Being a School Project it's a pretty small game, checking it out probably wont take you more than 20 minutes but I'd be happy to see entries in that leaderboard grow! ๐Ÿฅฐ

PH / Covid / PSA 

Hey everybody, I'm still ill. Despite being fully vaccinated, I've got Covid-19. After the official 10-day isolation period, I still have fever, aching muscles and a head cold, so I'm in extended self-isolation. I'm not feeling like doing much, not even posting here, though I've been catching up on a lot of reading.

Please don't take this as saying vaccines don't work: they do work, and you should get all the vaccines you're offered. But they aren't perfect. They work maybe 90% of the time, or maybe 70%, or maybe only 40%, depending on the type of vaccine and the virus variant, so there's still a fair chance of you getting ill. So keep on using masks and hand gel and all that as well.

Still ill. I slept so much yesterday, and read. There's a vague nausea which means I don't want to eat or look at screens, so I'm not on here much.

I'm vaccinated and don't expect it to be really bad, but definitely worth a sick day or two.

It seems I've finally got COVID. Did a PCR test on Sunday and it came back inconclusive, but two household members are positive. Now I have a temperature, cough and headache. ๐Ÿค’

support a queer neurodivergent artist (1/n), boosts welcome 

Hi. I am a queer #actuallyADHD musician with recurring depressive episodes and migraine and I need some help - I need to make at least 3900โ‚ฌ this year to keep my health insurance (it is a weird bureaucratic construct) and I believe I'm not even at half of that. (Too anxious atm to check.)

I make experimental sound with SuperCollider. I also do German copy editing and copywriting as my day job - drop me a dm if you need those services!
