I'm MOVING... to here @alan

it's not that I don't love you all. I think I'm going to setup home over there. I will keep this one alive, but I'm likely to spend more time over there.

I will follow most of you from there. follow me back, if you wish.

I marathoned all (2 seasons) of "The Good Place" on and it's an amazing show. Very much worth binging. Before the night is out I'll watch the 1st episode of season 3 (on #recommend

I'm watching Maniac ...only up to EP 3; good and I got to the moment of #MSFW but also funny at the same time. I don't know what to think yet; but probably worth watching as long as you know it's #NSFW or kids safe and screwed up (no pun intended). #netflix

I just finished the 2nd season of Atypical; and it's still a good show. #verygood

okay topic starter... who here follows/supports someone on Patreon? if so, (if you're interested in sharing), who? why? #patreonshare

for me I have a few, but the one I'd like to highlight... Orla Gartland ( She creates music 2 original songs a month. Instead of releasing EPs she releases them to her Patreons.

if you have a Patreon page, tell us about it! and why! #patreonplug

let us know, I'd like to hear about the people support!

still baffled by a large traffic bump for one of my #podcasts. it surged and has retained a lot of the new traffic. the show has slowly grown in listens over time; but this is unusual #IMO ...I just rant for 3 minutes once a week. what's the appeal in that? 😀

if you're trying to guess at # of cameras on the upcoming Google Pixel 3 will be; I suspect it won't be 5 or 6; generally isn't competitive for the sake of appearance. If there's a tech advantage/improvement (they've made) than there will be more than 2. That's my #guess

I'm still watching "The First" on and I still recommend it. I suspect I will be done with the 1st season by today.

Clearly the upswing in Bots and spammers have come to Mastodon. Cause the 'swift is now following me... and a California real estate group on one of my other accounts.

okay podcast finally edited. time for bed.

okay so what does everyone feel about Telsa vehicles? would you get one if you could?

question for everyone... what's the last game you played and/also gave up on? and why?

me it was staxel. it was very beta when Iast played it. since then I started back on recoding/building an old side project. I haven't missed the game since. programming is more fun for me. I know I'm odd. 😄

finally caught up (on buying) I was missing. It's harder to purchase music from an artist you like especially when they're cross-polinated w/other artists. Everything now, is stream centric; tough for those who want to show financial support not just accountable #'s.

I'm now getting DMs of support because people are afraid if they agree publicly they'll be harassed next. That's not a good atmosphere folks.

It's, important to know: I have 2 different colored eyes and wear glasses.

PPL: Wow you have 2 different colored eyes? are those contacts?

ME: Nope.

PPL: Are you sure?

ME: I am. I don't wear contacts.

Alright, give me an example of something someone said to you that was so astonishingly stupid that you can never forget it. #pleasegoaway

fun times today. </sarcasm>
this morning l dropped my phone (face down) in the 2 years... maybe this the 3rd time I dropped my phone. this happened on my way out the door. it seemed fine, worked, except wouldn't charge when I got to work.. I took it out of the case and you could see the screen bulged a bit.

I was going to wait until gen 3 of the pixel came out, nope; so I just bought gen 2; I'll just have to fend without a phone until the weekend.


also good night masto! until another day... we shall toot again.
