I'm a choral composer; I like to release my music under free culture licences, usually CC by-SA.

I'm working on a PhD in contemporary sacred choral composition.

I'm neurodivergent, and I have multiple healthcrap issues. I'm a migrant. I'm Christian.

You can find my work at artsyhonker.net/ and fund it at artsyhonker.net/support

I also run Cecilia's List, a project to highlight Christian sacred music composed by people who are not men. That's very much on the back burner for the time being because of PhD stuff, though.

New rule:

You don't get to say "oh, you could sell that on Etsy/set up a Patreon/write an e-book and sell it/etc" unless you promise to buy stuff from the person you are saying it to, at a price that pays them a living wage for their time *after* material and admin costs.

I'd say "I don't make the rules" but I totally just made a rule, there, so.

My favourite fact about Canada is that in the 70's a radio show had a competition for a national simile along the lines of "as american as apple pie" and the winning entry was "as canadian as possible under the circumstances"

Neat harmony thing that I wonder exists in other choral/a cappella forms: "tag singing," where people will harmonize little bite-sized, 4-part bits of music; often the last 4 bars or so of a full song, but people write stand-alone tags as well. Easy & fast to learn, and I gather that people often exchange & sing them at gatherings; instant ice-breaker and bonding experience. youtube.com/watch?v=ktwJ6Ob_u8

Do you like the designs I make? Do you want to see more? I do too! But I want to make these on paper with paint and pens and whatnot. I like working my hands, but that's hard without funds.

Subscribing at any level, but especially at $5+, helps a lot. Boosts help too. patreon.com/kyefox

The most effective, available and scalable #carbon #capture technology is reforesting our planet. There are practically no downsides to this. #Restoration could become a driver for a new kind of eco-nomic growth. Imagine a tax-funded initiative to massively deploy forestry programs. This would be a jobs programme as well. Give people housing in the newly reforested areas so they can maintain them. Combine agro-forestry and permaculture techniques to feed the local populations and restore biodiversity. Make it possible for people currently in bullshit jobs or carbon-intensive jobs to retrain to this new system. It is possible. We have the means.
