This week is the one year anniversary of my friend Blair passing away. They made this drawing many years ago, and a friend printed this huge poster of it after they died. It expresses how a lot of us felt at losing them to this shitty world that endlessly destroys queer and trans people (and so many others).
I didn't think I would be sharing anything about them online today, or this week. But I see a lot of my friends on here hurting and angry today. I hope sharing these words and drawing from Blair will help focus our rage and grief against this world that must be destroyed. 🔥
"To whom it may concern...
FUCK YOUR WORLD
It is killing everything we love, it has taken too many to ever be forgiven. So many are in pain and dying at your 'invisible' hand. We see through your bullshit. We are not impressed with your attempts at 'tolerance'
Our children will dance on your ruins."

RIP Blair Lauren
Things I have moved by cargo bike in the last 24 hrs: a sectional couch, 7 potted house plants, 75lbs of t shirts (not pictured cause that was just regular work stuff).
While these are things I acquired directly from people who were moving and not in the trash, I wish everyone a wonderful trash christmas, may you find exactly what you were needing today.
If been very bad at posting #FunADay due to reasons but I'm back to share this perfect sign from a lobby on this extremely sad, rainy day.
#FunADay - today I played guitar again! Nothing exciting to note.
But shout out to the whirring fan (?) belt (?) ventilation system (???) on the near-by building (I think) which sounds almost exactly like crickets/peepers. Falling asleep imagining it's summer and I'm in the country for the last month or so has been great.
Ok I fell off #FunADay after day 2 due to several stresses and puppy care and generally being avoidant, so today just played along to a couple albums I know pretty well, figured out a screamo solo bit that's been in my head for months and played along to some fast hardcore. I'm torn between wanting to get better at noodly shit and just real fast power chords. Maybe I can pull both?
To start it off, I jammed tonight. Here's a snippet of a song we wrote tonight ft. me messing up the drum part #FunADay (sorry bandmates for sharing a very unfinished song 😬 )
Ok barely getting in for my first #FunADay - was gonna do riff-a-day, but settling for anything music (-a-day). Thay could be play guitar (I just got a fun new electric which helps make it exciting!), drum alone, jam, or mess around w mixing/mastering. For accountability, I'm gonna try to figure out some kind of sticker chart system to use alongside actually posting here cause I gotta be real about how bad I am at social media. But I'll try to post some things along the way.
Hello! 438punk.house is hosting / organizing a Fun-A-Day this February and we wanna invite members of our instance (or anyone else who wants) to participate!
Basically, the idea is that you pick an activity or project and you try to do it and/or work on it every day during the month of February. More details to come
You can use the hashtag #FunADay to keep track of your progress and see others', and this account will be boosting participants and giving updates.
It's December. Here's last year's Yule Log video.
