My friend the brilliant author Rachel Pollack is coming to the end of her life. She won the Nebula, World Fantasy and Arthur C Clarke awards. She is a world renowned expert on Tarot, and her books on Tarot are still regarded as the good standard. She created the first trans superhero, in Doom Patrol in '93. I will miss her very much when she goes. I am writing this at the request of her wife Zoe, to let her friends know that the end is soon, and to let the obituarists know too.

I don't get this "wait until after the car crash happens then everyone not injured can put in a seatbelt"

We knew it was only a matter of time before Grimes' ex husband booted us off his platform like a failed SpaceX satellite.

The time for relying on corporate social media platforms has been over for a long time now.

We're stoked at the growth of community here on mastodon and we hope to use this platform to share anarchist, anticapitalist and anticolonial videos for years to come.

“Temperatures in more than a dozen Chinese cities have hit record seasonal highs this week, with central China’s Wuhan and Zhengzhou more than 10C hotter than average for early March, official data showed.” 😳

The harm Fox has caused to America, viewers, employees... is unfathomable. Punitive damages should be in the BILLIONS$: Filings have shown that Fox’s top execs admonished members of the news team for their “disrespect” to the network’s audience. A text exchange with former Fox producer Phil Vogel, who told her he was taking a pay cut & forgoing 6 weeks paid leave to get out of the network bc “I couldn’t defend” their voter fraud coverage to his daughter-:
