Hey, Mastodon. Would any of you be interested in a #MastodonCares β˜ƒοΈβ€‹ holiday ❄️​ fundraiser? πŸŽβ€‹

I've got a page all set up to raise funds to donate an Ark to Heifer.org. But I don't know if that's a thing the fediverse would like to do?

@Gargron A data point on instance selection: I told a coworker about Mastodon, and Google gave him mastodon.social as the third (and most highest) hit. So he registered there.

If you want to spread registrations around, mastodon.social is gonna need a special front page that directs people to instance pickers, etc.

That dude is looking to hire illustrators for Thrillist. Apply by sending him a post card with some art on it.

Re: Last Boost, It'd be nice to have quoted messages*, similar to birdsite, that then could include CW's.

*I still can't call them by their default, palindromic name.

NaNo really makes me want to not go into the office. Cause it's a lot easier to make faces at my computer and write when there's no one around.

Well on the plus side, FF Quantum overwriting the Mastodon scrollbars means I can actually use the left/right scrollbar at the bottom

So the Amazon multi-season series is a done deal.

I have no idea why anyone needs this. There's already 15 hours of movie, which is basically a TV series.

Please boost widely: Call for Proposals, "After Social Media: Alternatives, New Beginnings, and Socialized Media." It's a call for research/essays on alternative social media, including Mastodon, of course. robertwgehl.org/blog.php#2017-

This chocolate manages to use honey and bee pollen without making the chocolate seize. So the bar is crisp. But you can definitely taste the honey in the aftertaste.

So. I saw #GeoStorm.

It wasn't as bad as I was hoping. Like I was hoping for a movie so bad it would make me laugh. This just had wildly implausible instantaneous weather and space lasers.

And a really really earnest message to please not fuck up the Earth.

Tonight I shall use my Moviepass to see Geostorm. The most perfect use of this service, I think.

"If you look at the world and say β€œYes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.

And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system."

Looking at the returns map of Virginia, the alt-right's gonna flip its damn lid.
