Copied from my LJ account:

Well, LJ has finally done it. I'm leaving effective this weekend. The whole Russian involvement was bad enough, but the new TOS doc is terrible.

"ATTENTION: this translation of the User Agreement is not a legally binding document. The original User Agreement, which is valid, is located at the following address:" [document in Russian]

Oh, and you can't get in at all unless you agree to it. Which I did only long enough to get the rest of my data.

Everything has been/is being moved to https://asheris.dreamwidth.org/.

end of an era

will delete my livejournal account at the end of the day; posted a brief message saying so. because russia hates teh gay. my account was seventeen years old; I was an early adopter with a four-digit user number. who knew we'd still be fighting the russians after all these years?

everything has been migrated over here. I guess this is it.

so here we are.

so everybody's fled livejournal in the wake of the russian LGBT persecution. including me. i want to delete my account but i can't log in, tells me i have the wrong password. wtf, i just changed it recently, it's not like i've forgotten it.

posted an epic rant/whine about my specialty coffee failure on facebook. somebody said failure is not in falling down, but in staying down. i don't have the emotional energy to get up again as far as coffee is concerned. fuck it. i gave it a good shot, more than good.

i also gave art a good shot, and now i'm thinking of having a fire sale and closing up my studio. i never thought i'd be famous but i would like to have moved more inventory. actually *make* some money instead of just spending it on storage unit and studio rent. making money as an artist though is pretty tough though. so i don't feel so bad there. it's just that every time i go into the studio lately it feels like the past.

oboe is still going well, at least.

though i have zero idea about what to do with the next twenty years of my working life, assuming i work until 65. that's still a long time to be clueless.
