I posted over at the Birdsite that I think its "operational metaphor is Reality TV Set. It looks like a house, but nothing is private; everything is recorded & commodified. Its mantra is 'I'm not here to make friends.'"

Other people have been talking about how mastodon feels like many other "early" internet spaces. I hope that means (modulo instance) it's a place that's amenable to make friends.

TL;DR: I AM HERE TO MAKE FRIENDS (even though am bad at making friends)

Today discovered Unicode has a symbol, the "Epiglottal plosive" or IPA glyph 173, which in sans serif fonts turns out to look exactly like the "female" symbol modified into a question mark.

...Is this a Gender
I think it might be a Gender

I got the word that Santa has been stealing from the till.

I think that that right jolly old elf better make out his will!

Going into the javascript console to adjust the volume on bandcamp pages.

I saw Donnie Darko this weekend, and my brain has just been nothing but Tears for Fears ever since.

indulgences were like christianity microtransactions

I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

Spending the day anxious while my dog gets tested for Cushing's syndrome.

Ripples and a-wibbles
Tentacles and tribbles
Dancing to inhuman rhythm
Cos they're non-Euclidean

The whole ship shimmies
When everything is moving around and around and around and around
Everything is moving
Everything is grooving baby
Folks lining up outside
Our dimension
Just to get down
Funky little planet
Funky little planet

Lovecraft
has a little old place where
we can get together
Lovecraft, HP
Lovecraft, HP Lovecraft
Lovecraft, HP Lovecraft

bang bang bang
on the door baby

if you see a faded sign
at the side of the shore
that says fifteen miles to
(roar)

I'm headed down
the Innsmouth coastline
looking for
a space out of time
headed for a space out of time

i got me a ship
it's as big as a Shoggoth
and we're headed out to meet
a fun guy from Yuggoth

I got me a cruiser
from the Miskatonic faculty
so hurry up and bring
your forbidden archaeology

Lovecraft
has a little old place where
we can get together
Lovecraft, HP
Lovecraft, HP Lovecraft
Lovecraft, HP Lovecraft

Reminder that under communism, you have to be interesting.

I saw Gillian Welch in concert over 20 years ago, and she described "My Morphine" as having the world's slowest yodel. I remember it being lightly funny, with looks between her and Rawlings sparking smiles during the chorus. youtube.com/watch?v=wUoZPtE7fV
