only today did it hit me how insipid the line “i got soul but i’m not a soldier” is

but it’s fun to sing and THAT’S WHAT COUNTS

I work for an online retailer that sells in-home lighting; most of my job involves sifting through images and making them pretty for our websites. A few months ago, I came across a peculiar ceiling light that reminded me of spaceships hanging in the sky, the Starship Enterprise in particular. To me, it almost resembled a baby mobile. Hmmm, there’s a fella I know who really likes Star Trek, and who’s also having a baby…one thought lead to another (with a nudge of inspiration from Fry’s spaceship mobile from Futurama), et voilà! I ended up crocheting an Enterprise mobile for Kris Straub: TNG.

I’ve never done amigurumi before, and only a touch of crochet. It still only took about five weeks from start to finish. I did five ships total, since the first one looks like ass compared to later versions. It’s weird not having the squishy little buggers around anymore, but they’ve gone to a good home:

Ben Kuchera responds to criticism from women.

Oh good, it’s this guy.

I don’t know Ben Kuchera at all, aside from hearing snide things about PA Report, but I’m inclined to chalk this up to shitty wording? As in, he might be saying this to men? He seems to be staunchly on Brianna Wu’s side. Polygon ran the article, after all. If I’m wrong, feel free to beat my naïve Internet ass into a pulp.

Game Designer Jason L. Blair Writes About Dealing With OCD

takethisproject:

Over on his blog, “I Have My Eye On You,” game designer Jason L. Blair has some thoughts to share about the true nature of OCD:

“I was exhausted. The more people I was around, the more energy I had to put into pretending I was fine. I couldn’t let the mask slip. I couldn’t let on that I was losing my mind. That I was under constant torture and just as constant pressure to act like everything was…

some of this sounds distressingly familiar. when I learned about OCD in school, I remember learning about hand-washing and the compulsion to check on things…not so much about unwanted, intrusive thoughts, which I’ve got in spades. I worry about other people who read this and think, “but he was so strong to have fought this off, and I’m not him”…but you’re more like him than you think. you’ve got that light inside you, too.
