Siri kept calling me Shirley and I was getting really annoyed until I realized that I left my phone in Airplane mode.

It's been a while since I've been on here. I'm mostly over on mastodon.technology now, same @.

*logging on after working on code*

*being asked about big tiddy alf and vape ape*

its interesting how 'the medium' still hugely influences stuff we experience!

a. the style of shooting at f/1.4 to create a Cinematic Vibe is actually to blur out unnecessary details in each frame to optimise for youtube's encoding, giving more bitrate to the the details that remain

b. the style of putting a lowpass filter on drums to create a LowFi Oldskool hip hop feel is actually to optimise for MP3 encoding on souncloud, which completely ruins everything if you have anything much above 15k

I love dragons and I think my newest shirt is adorable. Wish there was a filter that made my shirt look ironed.

I hope Elon Musk doesn't get into a scandal. 

Elon-gate would be really drawn out.

I'm going to add another machine to mastodon.social infrastructure to ensure the people we got on here have a good experience.

I wish I could rapidly order a small potato snack via Mastodon so I could get Two Tots by Tooting, Tout Suite

The one-l lama,
He's a priest.
The two-l llama,
He's a beast.
And I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn't any
Three-l lllama.*
