Pinned toot

It's worth noting that this is on my custom-built banjo Telecaster, which has fast become one of my favourite instruments. Looks like a standard Tele from a distance, but get a bit closer and you start seeing the differences...

I don't toot often enough (harhar) - here's some music noodling I did the other day: facebook.com/cwiiis/posts/1010

Honestly, I think it is a huge mistake for Mastodon to not just treat Twitter like yet-another instance. At least automatically handle @-mentions in the @foo@twitter.com format. It feels like idealism to pretend Twitter doesn’t exist, but I think we should be far more realistic.

Doomworld Top 100 writeup 

I played "Impossible: A New Reality" (#087) early last year on a WAD Wednesday stream, you can see my stream-of-consciousness first reactions to it here: youtube.com/watch?v=ZnxZfhMMk9
Still enjoyably clever in ways that are hard to capture in stills. It does several tricky non-euclidean things I've done in (as-yet-)unreleased work, but did them in 2006 without GZDoom's modern portal tech - impressive! And the final confrontation really is a nice dramatic payoff.

Hmm, not so many people here, maybe I'll start doing gamedev tweets... It's at an embarrassingly early stage, Twitter feels too exposed...

I'm using the bridge site to find all my mufos. It takes a few minutes to pull but it may help others who can't find their people: bridge.joinmastodon.org/friend

It's Orwell Bluegrass Festival this weekend - my band, The Vanguards, will be playing on Friday at 14:40, with special guest Ewan Penkey on bass :)

Also very much looking forward to trying out Shackleton's new bluegrass banjo: instagram.com/p/BToGEdwl8Tu/?t - expecting it to be pretty powerful...

Don't really post much on here... Maybe I'll just talk about banjo-related things, as opposed to on Twitter where it's mostly just tech and sarcasm.

Let's start off with all of the multi-track banjo recordings I've got on YouTube so far: youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRG

so, are people tooting their tweets? (love that sentence!) Or do people treat Mastodon differently somehow?
