Pinned toot

I recently had it pointed out to me that I should do an post! So hi! I'm a clown, stiltwalker, juggler, musician, starting to work on some acrobatics, and I work for a (circusfreaks.org) I have a BA in German, and am hoping to start practicing speaking with people more often in German. I was invited to come and try out Mastadon by @RussSharek@mastodon.cloud and have been enjoying it thus far.

Finally decided I want to make a for longer form posts, so I"m playing around with today.

The best advice I got which applies to art & media comes from my old sports & athletics training:

Do not over-train.

You will injure yourself, come away stressed, not be able to recover fully before you have to work again, and you may become bored with what you were once massively interested in.

sometimes u just gotta doodle your gay elf man and his circus bear

Spent some time learning and training acro-stilts and stilt-dance with fellow performers @Avalon and @naugeleh

To say my a** was kicked is an essentially accurate statement. To say it was kicked repeatedly with legs wearing long extension poles might be more accurate.

What kind of monster did Heisenberg turn into every full moon? Show more

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she'd always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She'd always wanted a cat.

I have this fantasy that one day I'll be in an interesting city and get involved in shenanigans with interesting and fun people that goes on all night and in to the next day. It never happens but it'd be fun if it did.

A new Linux smartphone is coming!

With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.

KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.

You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

Looking to add another to my feed, anyone have any ? Open to pretty much anything, currently listening to a lot of tech podcasts and am open to more of them, but could also use some variety in my feed lol

A dog just boarded the bus. The driver couldn't get the dog to leave the bus.

Free ride dog is my hero.

Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.

There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.

Get back up, learn something new, and try again.

#inktober today I was so motivated to sketch! and then I had to do groceries and when I went outside it became colder, and I am still a bit sick myself with a cold.. so I was standing in the cold wind trying to sketch.

this is our local lidl supermarket with a construction going on on the sidewalk and bikelane, a worker laying some pavement stones, and the faceless lidl building in the background. ok, this lidl is at least in an older building.

Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.

Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
