For anyone here who is anti YouTube or just wants to support federated services, I'm slowly copying my videos over to a Peertube instance over here...

You can follow me from Mastodon at... @mrfunkedude@tube.tchncs.de

My videos vary from baking to philosophy to mental health topics. I think it's worth a follow.

For those new to me, allow me to myself!

I'm a 52yr old dude, in the Lebowski line of dudes, who likes to live stream on YouTube and make videos about different things. I focus on kindness, mental health, good discussions, eating out, making bread, going on local adventures, movie and series reviews, philosophy, tech, and more!

Aside from that, I've got a blog where I keep everything I do in one place. My videos, thoughts, etc. You should check it out.

Links are in profile.

And Hi!

When challenging someone's perspective stop and ask yourself these questions...

1) What do I understand about the others perspective?
2) What do I understand about my own perspective?
3) Could I be wrong?
4) What do I want the other to understand about my perspective?
5) What do I want the other to understand about their own perspective?

If you find yourself skipping the first three, you're not really trying to have a discussion and may want to check your ego.

Is it weird that I asked my girlfriend for a tortilla press for my birthday Friday?

My birthday is Friday. I'll be 53.

Fuck. I'm getting old.

*death metal voice* IF YOU SPRINKLE WHEN YOU TINKLE PLEASE BE NEAT AND WIPE THE SEAT

There's not enough weed in the world that would make me want to buy Twitter.

Not that it really matters. I just want Mastodon to be in the lead since I rarely post to Twitter anymore. I mostly just use it to amplify my videos and live streams.

I have 202 followers on Twitter, and 174 on Mastodon.

C'mon Fediverse. You know what to do. I promise I'll be somewhat entertaining.

If I had to describe myself it would be "Mister Rogers with an attitude." I believe in spreading kindness and being helpful to others as well as affirming the intrinsic uniqueness of every individual.

But also, fuck you if you're being a piece of shit.

I really wish that PeerTube had an IOS app. I think it would really push the service forward.

I just noticed I have 40 subscribers on PeerTube. Sweet.

I run 3 channels.

One that's short form videos where I remind people how awesome they can be and how everyone is unique and that's what makes us all so wonderful.

Another where it's just my thoughts about different things.

And lastly a baking channel.

I bet the ancient Sumerians had some pretty funny names for their junk. Itʼs the one thing that unites us all across time and cultures.

If you enjoy my content, please visit my website mrfunkedude.com where you can see more. I explore philosophy, the fediverse, food, photography, and just life in general.

Thanks.
