another trick to having a good time on mastodon imo: start tooting about anything other than mastodon

[fully recognizing the irony of the above toot, which is, of course, about mastodon. but I think by and large as a fediverse citizen I have achieved a good about-mastodon-to-anything-else ratio]

@aparrish additionally this wasn't meant to be jabbing, and re-reading it i could see how it comes off that way so, you know, we're cool still. also hi!

@aparrish That was perfect. I drafted a toot and deleted it because it was too mean. I couldn't think of a nice way to say 'Don't join and immediately criticize Masto unless you want to be muted by everyone.'

@aparrish jeff atwood said "meta is murder" and he's still right about that

@aparrish I agree. Likewise people ought to stop constantly mentioning 'finally left Twitter' or 'Bye bye Facebook'. I realize they try to 'get away from it all' but then why even still focus attention on those sites if you finally left those? Indirectly that is also tooting about Mastodon, which comes back to your point, heh. ;)


Between a good artist
And a great one


The novice
Will often lay down his tool
Or brush

Then pick up an invisible club
On the mind's table

And helplessly smash the easels and

Whereas the vintage man
No longer hurts himself or anyone

And keeps on



@aparrish cool let’s talk about um *looks around* goddamnit uhhhh

this lamp. This lamp is pretty neat

@metapianycist @aparrish second rule of mastodon: uh...

*checks notepad*

Well there would be a second rule here if someone would stop tearing out pages for their paper planes. :blobfacepalm:
