Pinned toot

My () is hilariously out of date. My name is Patrick Hogan and I'm a journalist. I've worked a bunch of places, but I'm presently between the jobs (hire me). I wrote an intro to Mastodon last month for The Outline

I toot a lot about scifi/fantasy novels, video games and other crap. I've made several dumb bots: @FursonaAssignment @NintendoPowered @Energy_Forecast and I released a Mastodon ebooks bot you can use today!

But we basically have that now thanks to chat apps with emoji reactions.

For all of my boosterism of The Expanse, you'd think I'd be deep in the paint of season 3 by now, but I actually only just started. I'm four episodes in and this remains the only show on TV that can leave me mouthing "What the fuck" repeatedly when the end credits play.

I've reached the point of the summer where sleep is basically impossible later than usual to year
