The Lipstick Ends Of Tomboy Femmes
I've compiled a book from my writings online here at Metafilter, Facebook and Tumblr, chronologically documenting my gender transition from January 2013 to September 2016. The book is available via Amazon.com.

Touch Bar Piano
Have a new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar? Wish it had a really tiny fiddly two-octave keyboard? Then this is the program for you! Fully polyphonic, choice of all 128 sounds from the General Midi orchestra. Here's a demo video.

RIP My Menchies: Thoughts on Going Viral
I had a tweet blow up for the first time and it changed the way I use Twitter and think of Twitter. Here are my thoughts on that.

F_ract_l
I've been exploring and creating a lot of flame fractals recently - they seem to provide an endless universe of fantastic shapes and patterns. So I've started putting them all on a Tumblr. They make great desktop backgrounds, anyway.

dopewars bot for Slack
I built a dopewars bot so that you can play dopewars on Slack, because of course that's a good idea.

Guided By Voices song title bot (@favoriteGBVsong)
My first Twitter bot project! I trained a Markov chain generator on ~2500 Guided By Voices / Robert Pollard song & record titles, and set it loose to generate fairly believable GBV song names. Song titles from the wonderful Guided By Voices Database.

I built a multi-plane animation stand
I’m really happy to finally finish a new multi-plane animation stand set up after two weeks of building, visiting hard ware stores, hunting for fabric and transporting heavy glass in a suitcase by bus. Link includes a time lapse video showing the building process, followed by detail shots with more information and a test shot inspired by Blade Runner.

Demake Bot
It's another Twitter bot! This one "demakes" images, meaning it makes pixelated, low-res versions of images. It works on its own schedule but will also take requests from mutual followers.

Lorem Ipsum
I have done broad nib calligraphy for the last two years. From somewhat rough beginnings, I have gotten pretty good!

Futile Fonts
Do you like fonts based on ultra-obscure 1980s LED displays, or based on ROM dumps from the Commodore 64's pen plotter? Of course you do!

Decrypting Rita
I spent four and a half years drawing a comic about a robot lady dragged out of reality by her ex-boyfriend. It's done now. You can finally find out if she managed to get herself back together and stop that hive-mind from taking over the planet. Somehow I managed to get some amazing blurbs for it somewhere along the way...

Six years of masks
Each year for the past six years I've crafted a mask for Mardi Gras - they're all skulls, and all made out of papier-mache. Recently I decided to document all of them at once and felt it would be more appropriate to show not only the masks themselves but the costumes that go with them. The result is this composite image, put together from six different photographs of me and my masks.

all GRSSK to me
A fun, frivolous one-trick-pony Tumblr. Inspired by a Mediterranean restaurant in my neighborhood that swaps Δs for As and Σs for Es in their logo, this blog regularly publishes examples of swapped-in geometrically similar letters from various alphabets, regardless of the letters' phonetic similarity. In post descriptions, I also try and swap the original phonemes back in; thus GRΣΣK becomes GRSSK, and (mild) hilarity ensues. Submissions welcome! Shout-out to Bulgaroktonos for blog-naming inspiration.
