looking for a 3d artist to model a few simple-ish hard surface objects for use in a cool game project! freelance gig, short-term, marginalized / underrepresented people preferred.

studio internet has been horribly flaky but i'm enjoying the clean simple moments spent offline

i'm looking for reading recommendations on what i'd (maybe clumsily) call 'design for social impact'. i mostly make things that have purely entertainment value, which is fine!!! but i want to explore the real-world points of attack some more, how i can help, etc.

reflections on web presence 

over the past few years i've built a 80k+ mailing list and a 15k+ social account with very regular viral posts and looking back at them now i'm thinking... what a terrible thing to build as a skill?

it warps the ways in which you present and talk about things, you start adjusting your content in order to achieve highest possible engagement. still, i'm proud of figuring out the mechanics that work for me passing them on. might elaborate on this in a longer post.

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.

if you'd like to give minit fun racer a spin but for whatever reason can't afford it right now: message me, i have a few steam keys left, no questions asked. (windows build only)

released a little racing game with team minit today! $3, all proceeds will go to charity, forever. first up is doctors without borders.

made over the course of a month, i did art + animation

minitfunracer.com

added a dark mode using prefers-color-scheme media queries (system-wide dark mode). also added embedded audio players for my music projects

dom.ink

managed to implement a css-only dark mode for my website but realized i can't set cookies without scripts. switching pages would always go back to light mode, which is probably worse than just not having a dark mode >:(

just started my twtxt feed! you can read or follow at this url:

dom.ink/tw.txt

i'll probably stick to very short updates about my website or spontaneous musings. longer form posts (notes, articles, etc.) will go into their own section on dom.ink eventually

so tempted to set up a microblog section on my website and use that to scratch the terrible social media broadcasting itch. probably a bad idea while i'm still marking up every single .html by hand

mental health 

i'm back in therapy and about to see a psychiatrist for guidance with medication. i'm so glad i mustered the strength to work it out even at this glacial pace getting through systems and wait lists and dice rolls

jk but i've mostly been using my private github for journaling and i managed to be consistent this year. those gaps mark a really tough time for me

anyone have recommendations for video games that you can do a fair bit of quiet walking and exploration and zoning out in? i guess i'm looking for something like skyrim without the dragon grandeur. old and janky is fine

just released a double single with my friend as BATLORD – fun dark beats from the void batlord999.bandcamp.com/album/

finished shirley jackson's 'the lottery and other stories'.

some of these i've already forgotten but others are out of this world good and uncanny and skin crawling and will stick for a long time. after hill house i was expecting more actual horror themes, which some of these stories have, but what you'll mostly find is: isn't this mundane thing scary, isn't that person next to you secretly plotting something, isn't this beautiful place actually broken and rotting and corrupted. i love it
