An .

I am @tychi. An internet artist.

I enjoy emerging mediums, which practically means i'm an technologist and anything that can evoke human emotion from a digital signal is my instrument.

My latest project is sillyz.computer. There's not much there, besides Silly, the keyboard kid and the private journals available on every 404 page.

I've built two tools for building my web things cutestrap.com and thelanding.page/tag. Some people think they're cool, which is nice, but they're mostly for me so it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks-- but I share them publicly so anyone can benefit from my progress.

Lately, I've been trying to learn formal programming methodologies less and music more. I've got hyperhidrosis which leads to playing music in live environments frustrating at best and impossible at worst-- so i've taken to synthetic instruments.

Ultimately, I would like to make indie games. I love that the medium encompasses so many disciplines into a single neat package. Writing, composing, illustrating, animating, programming all create beautiful simulations of worlds unfathomable.

But first, I'm surviving our collective dystopia-- participating in the fine balancing act of procuring food and shelter against satisfying the desires of our hearts.

@meduz @celia

i am ephemeral with the knowledge that my mind might change tomorrow and whatever i posted yesterday on the internet is archived eternally but may or may not be a reflection of who i am today.

after over a year on the fediverse, i think i've figured out what this is and where we are.

this is where people are either indepedent artists exploring their digital identities freely without compromise or

the platform of the commons for people that were banned or scorned by other platforms for whatever reason.

it's possible to be both, but i don't think it is possible to be neither. it's possible to spectrum on either axis.

in this year, i've found myself to be more drawn to the artists and and repelled by the soldiers. i've exhibited traits from every different angle. i know i was angry and bitter for a while. like. i was never not spiteful on the internet until like super recently.

i'm getting better every day.

if you post things you enjoy on the internet, thank you.

if you post things you hate, get help.

@tindall I think a lot about all the friends I've lost due to decisions made in conference rooms by people looking at charts trying to get promotions.

Self Portrait of myself.

Unlike most self portraits, I am flashing two peace signs.

This was taken today on a Fujifilm Finepix JX on a tripod with a 10 second timer, double exposure. one with flash and one without.

This is the version with flash, so my skin is a little over exposed. So like, hella white. My blue eyes pop against the contrast.

My smirk covers my teeth, my biggest insecurity.

I'm wearing a snapback hat backwards, my hair flowing out from underneath.

My 80s style wristwatch peeks out from under the left sleeve of a sweatshirt of Atari's Missle Command arcade game.

A table is behind me, with a bubble maker and bubbles on top with a cooler below it.

I'm squatting for no other reason than not being quite sure where the frame began and ended.

The photo was taken to test lighting conditions for a family photo.

One and done, but I really like my style. I wear the watch every day. I regularly wear the sweatshirt...

i'd found a missions organization to send humanitarian aid to americans but would get assasinated by the megachurches that oppress them

if i started a solo electronic music thing i'd go by Yascho

yet another shitty chill hop orchestra

but contrarily, the worst thing someone could possibly do online is make you believe there was a previous post when there wasn't.

dweb camp

dwebcamp.org/

i am going to this (and also volunteering to get a free ticket) is anyone else?

alright, officially changing my employment status from unemployed.

I am officially self-employed with zero income!

I've created an LLC for sillyz.computer

My first business expense was also an iPhone SE with Airpods to let people know I am Super Serious about Sillyz' Computer

i am the best at what i do in a ten foot radius right now only.

My dumbass found my license!

It was in my wallet. I never open my wallet because i usually just walk around with loose cards in my pocket.

My smartass put the license in there while packing for safe keeping.

Show thread

haven't really seen one pair of glasses and broke the other pair and the backup pair makes me feel like someone who hasn't been that me for a long time but also the prescription is out of date.

Move went well yesterday!

The only thing I lost was my... driver's license!

it was in my pocket all day, but fell out when shifting or lifting something.

The next one was better.

Prompt:

"What if a True Neutral super hero existed?"

My response:

"Dave is a machine. Tracks trends of power and destruction and the potential of heroes and villians. Notes the power struggle creates an infinite feedback loop, with more casualties and more cost with each iteration. Goal is to preserve society and limit risk."

Show thread

Packing and cleaning the apartment to move. Came across an old writing notebook.

A prompt:

"What if robots ran the justice system"

My resonse:

"Dave is a lawyer. I'm already bored of this idea."

what if:
the billionaires aren't trying to get to space but

create manufacturing plants in orbit where the workers believe earth is uninhabitable and while the conditions are exploitative, that is just the nature of residing in space and they're lucky to be alive and that only works if everyone does their part so they're happy for sacrificing.

but instead of space and the future, this is exactly how the world works today, but space is the uninhabitable sector and the only reason space is on the table right now is because it is more difficult to regulate human rights

and stopping this culmination is the the series finale of squid game.

They'll take me away and you'll say
Thank goodness such a nuisance
But later when they take you away
I'll say nothing as I'm already gone

trying to read an article called "21 reasons why life is better when high" but can only find three reasons because also ADHD and the pagination buttons blend in with ads

one time hanging out with my friend that is very anti-car and very pro-public transit

in an uber in tacoma to get to the train station

uber driver was like "where train to?"

heading to seattle

i had all my luggage with me.

uber driver "i could take you there"

me without hesistating, "yeah let's just do it"

my friend: :surprised_pikachu: :star_trek_picard_facepalm:

Hufflepuffs have been actively undermining JKR since she tried to erase us, so starting with the release of the first book.

these are her previously unreleased notes:

Gryffindor: selfless heroes
Ravenclaws: the smarty pants
Slytherin: xenophobic legacy admission students
Hufflepuff: the other ones

like, even Newt Scamander takes a back seat in his own series and his primary performances are boiled down to stereotypical charicatures of Hufflepuffs.

my step dad works at a private airport. my mom, my sister and him live across from it, so we hear all the planes.

6 private jets have come in/out this morning alone.

that's a lot of fuel boi.

if i'm ever that rich, please kill me to save society.
