i'm wolfteeth, i run a tiny closed instance called mellified.men. i post my hilarious goofs and japes unlisted or public but i mostly make boring locked posts for my followers. i like animals and art and fantasy/sci-fi and movies and being kinda pretentious despite also being a total dweeb. in my spare time i like to draw/paint. my day job is wrestling with computers like jacob with the angel #introductions
PSA: Lilies are dangerously toxic to cats. Even one small sniff or nibble can cause kidney failure and death. Rapid vet intervention cannot reliably save their lives.
*Never* keep true lilies (lilium) in the house if you have cats.
Make sure your family and friends know too! There's no warning at the store about the danger of lilies, so they get around in the holidays.
Midwinter is fast approaching in Dinotopia. A light snowfall covers the boulevards in Sauropolis.

My problem with The Bible: not enough like The Muppets in some places, TOO MUCH like The Muppets in others.
“For we each of us deserve everything, every luxury that was ever piled in the tombs of the dead kings, and we each of us deserve nothing, not a mouthful of bread in hunger. Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? No man earns punishment, no man earns reward. Free your mind of the idea of deserving, the idea of earning, and you will begin to be able to think.”
Ursula K Le Guin
The painting is one of my best from the book, a Plesiosaur making like a wobbegong, using camouflage to blend in with the surrounding coral.
There's no evidence the any plesiosaur did this. But then, we probably wouldn't know if they did, which was part of the point of the book.
Happy Birthday Jerry Lawson!
Jerry invented arguably one of the most important components to modern home console gaming. Modular software (cartridges). His work would help build the FairChild F, the first modular cartridge console. He was a chief engineer for the company. This predates the 2600!
here's the thing about a blog, i always feel like it should have a purpose. an art blog, or a collection of articles i have written, or some topic i am diving deeply into. instead i just want to post about an assortment of dumb bullshit. a diary of sorts. which i guess is what mastodon is for anyway
