    I'll be banned from the site again

    Due to, of course, more transphobia and disagreeing with site-majority opinions, I have been informed that I will be kicked off the site permanently starting tomorrow. I have prepared a farewell message in the comments below.

    Happy Easter!

    And to those who don't celebrate Easter, too bad, I'm going to impose it on you. Happy Easter. Jesus Christ died for you too, and because He rose from the dead, so can we all.

    Fluttershy and the Lava Demon: A Tale of Friendship

    My first AI art post. It isn't my art, since a computer for Bing generated it, but I had to share. And I always follow a strict "lacerate-demons-on-the-spot-with-a-shotgun-and-chainsaw" policy, but I can make an exception for this one.

    Artificial Intelligence

    "Bradybunch, everyone's already given their opinions on it!" Yeah, I know. But before I left the site for two years for a mission, AI was barely cohesive enough to give slurred and static-like voice replication, nonsensical chatbots, and meaningless swirls of shape and color for art. Then, all of a sudden, AI got really good, so I had to try it out. I'm using Bing's AI image generation, which is

    LOTR will never be equaled.

    I was thinking about it while playing Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War. (My brother gifted them to me for my birthday.) And honestly, the more I reflected on it, the more it made sense. There's a few things that compare in literary achievement, like Dune, but it never made it into modern public consciousness until, like, three years ago. And besides, LOTR wasn't just popular or good-- it

Just a quick field trip · 11:46am Oct 19th, 2021

Up to Boston. An hour and a half flight later, and I'll be with my uncle to go to the temple together.

See, the closest temple to me is the Washington DC temple, only 45 minutes away, but that's closed for renovations. Same with the Philadelphia temple, which is the next closest one. That one is a three hour drive. And after that, you might as well hop onto a plane and go anywhere in the country for your needs.

Temples are places where you perform special ordinances as proxies for people who have died. You get baptized, you get the spirit conferred upon you, etc, for a long-dead relative, for example. Of course, you can't just do it for anyone you want; celebrities, people less than a hundred years old, notable historical figures, and Holocaust victims are off the docket.

But the temple is also a place where you can feel the spirit of God most closely. Each of them are designed for the purpose of being a house unto the Lord. It is a place of reflection, reverence, and revelation, and it's a thin spot in the veil between the spirit world and our world. It's a real privilege to enter one, and my biggest passive goal in life is to always live worthy of entering it. With any luck, it will always be a refuge for me from the dark influences of the world.

You and me both. Everything else can just melt away once you really get into it. Which temple are you closest to?

Wow, cool. I went to EFY with a girl who lived in NC, and by the end of the week, she really warmed up to me. She's at BYU now, but we still keep in touch.
