Django Reinhardt and Duke Ellington
he thinks often about the exchange, since he learned that it was an illusion. this means it is a possibility. this much he can do, since he can’t stay here.

i’m selling my two worn-out old laptops on ebay. a big one here, and a small one here. i will only be removing financial information from these computers. all music, video files, writing, failed projects and abandoned comics will stay on them.
if you are willing to navigate their jumbled and confusing directory trees you could find such things as valentines i’ve made, a text file i’ve used for my to-do lists and personal notes for 2-3 years, high res versions of all my comics, terrible music i’ve recorded etc. these are kind of strange/personal things for you to buy and if you buy them feel free to do something strange with the files on them.

through silence, the truth shall reveal itself.
