    If anyone decides to get into this and loves it, there’s a lot of stuff with Merenghi and Dean Learner to tuck into. This has become one of those ‘if I start it, I must finish it’ series.

    if you want to learn how to make pizza, its a great sub. If you want to just look at food porn, there's a lot of that. Its a lot like /r/breadit, /r/icecreamery, and other food subs.

    automod does most of the work. Its just /r/pizza. I wouldn't mind having other mods, but so far nobody else does any work or they're too aggressive / take it too seriously.

    Reddit should just copy patreon and double down on porn, effectively taking out onlyfans and taking a huge bite out of patreon itself. IPO be damned!

    If reddit offers a way to sell shirts, stickers, pins, etc -- I'd be willing to sell them through the site... even if I, the only mod of a 400k sub, don't turn a dime. But if they did do a redbubble model via printful or another tshirt printing business, that could be great.

    Ultimately, reddit covers a lot of territory and has a lot of potential. They've dipped into NFTs, but that isn't very forward thinking. It'll be interesting to see where this all goes.

    I'm microdosing mushrooms. Previously 25mg every Tuesday and Saturday. Today I start at 50mg, but I'm also doing 300mg with a buddy in the evening for a little glow. Once I get used to the 50mg, I'll go to 100mg... and when I'm used to that, I'll take a break for a few weeks and restart back at 25mg.

    Low-dose shrooms are awesome. I really don't like being drunk or high, so this is basically perfect. I can still do everything like normal, but I'm happier.

    you should definitely watch Too Old to Die Young. The pace of the dialog is weird at first, but stick with it.

    Welp, I finished the book. This isn't completely accurate. These views are spread out over a few characters who have their own issues and are either wrong or projecting. This is hardly the focus...
    • Exemplary

    Welp, I finished the book.

    The book centers the story of Edie Ledwell, a popular cartoonist who, according to the official description, is "persecuted by a mysterious online figure" — and ultimately found dead — after her cartoon was criticized for being racist, ableist and transphobic (at least partly over a bit involving "a hermaphrodite worm,"

    This isn't completely accurate. These views are spread out over a few characters who have their own issues and are either wrong or projecting. This is hardly the focus of the book, the motivation for any character, or even a point that contributes to the overall story.

    Also, to say 'persecuted by a mysterious online figure' is also wrong. Edie isn't 'persecuted' at all for writing these characters. There is a subplot about the origin of said-characters, but she isn't persecuted for that.

    Its a shit article that is trying to suck up some clicks from a previous controversy. Basically tabloid trash.

    As for a review: it was good overall. Not as good as the others in the series. There's a lot of technology involved, which I absolutely hate. She was smart to avoid using proper domains like a lot of authors do, but the whole in-game chat log, the localization of characters, etc etc was clunky. I think a good ol crime / mystery novel is best when there is very little technology at play.

    The book is longer in length, but the bulk is essentially chat logs from a game. I also don't think shitting on a book for length is relevant, though. Some books are long, others are short... so long as you're not wasting words, it doesn't matter.

    Its like criticizing the Nick Adams stories for being too short... or Moby Dick for running off on tangents. But again, its a tabloid-level article.

    I still love this series and the TV series that is based on it. I was hoping this book would be as good as the others, but it isn't. The chat logs were awful to read.
