What is Cheapie Theatre?
This has come about largely as an attempt at keeping busy, and encourage writing. Honestly it feels somewhat wierd, since if one wishes to get to the point of it? Posting to any number of sites like archive of our own, wattpad, or even to social media like Facebook is incredibly easy. So, why do it this way?
Mostly, because why not? I like gemini as protcol and concept. It's flawed, but it represents someone looking at the problems of web bloat, an overabundance of advertisement, your own computer spying on you for the sake of selling to said advertisers. Then instead of just hand wringing and whining endlessly, they're attempting to do something about it. Gemini isn't appropriate for everything, shopping and banking being big ones, but it is surprisingly versitile in spite of being both simple and activly hostile to being extended.
If you're viewing this via your web browser, that is because flounder has a proxy that mirrors all of it's own content to the web. There are space restrictions to be hosted on flounder, but for the time being? It works for what I need.

Clean Sweep [Chapter 6: Study]
It's a blog, but on Gemini.
Now and then I try writing. I have been told I am reasonably good when I apply myself. Might as well have a home for that.
My ongoing attempt at making a d20 based RPG. I will also mirror content I have written about Engine Heart, True20 and any other pen and paper RPGs that take my fancy here.
Youtube, Odysee, wherever service I find them on. If I find it interesting enough to share and it is linkeable, I will throw links to interesting videos here.
Here are a few things on the Big Web I feel are worth sharing.
While Gopher has been largely unchanging, it is essentially the inspiration for gemni. That and I think Gopher is interesting.
While Gopher, web, and video links get their own subpages tucked away. For now i am putting the gemini links front and center. This list will change as I do my own crawling about gemini space.
DSL's Gemini Thing
HexDSL is a linux centric youtuber that I sorta got into because he had videos on command line, and I happened to find him interesting to listen to and often agree with what he has to say.
From the author: Parisian, not working as a developper but enjoying writing code during my scarce free time, I publish here various activities and notes in the hope that they can be useful to others!
Gemini Social Media and Aggrigators
Yes that apparently exists.
Station's a social media like thihbfor Gemini: because of course that exists. Even when there are no client side scripts social media finds a way.
Reddit-Like(ish) for Gemini. Interactive link service (with comments)
