So I think a new is in order given the new influx of people.

Hey there! My name is Derek and I live in . Closed captioning pays the bills, but is how I get my thrills. I write film criticism and make podcasts and edit stuff. You can find a good chunk of it at derekgodin.com

I also post about my and and and and (disproportionately about Bob Seger for some reason) but mostly I just like putting odd sentences together.

All right, friends, we're going to go into Phase 1 of Operation: Laserdisc Party House Party, where I use my account on my own instance (aka laserdisc.party) as my primary.

So if you like what you've seen here on .social, follow me over at laserdisc.party/@derek to keep seeing it!

Weird question: does anybody know of a daily draw tarot bot in the Greater Fediverse?

Masto Vs. Birdhouse Meta 

I love my followers, but I'll probably never do a Follow Friday here, or even a specific recc. On the other site I always found them anxiety-inducing, whether I got mentioned or (more frequently) not. In addition, it's simply not possible to get a real feel for who'd be best/most rewarding to follow when faced w/dozens of reccs in an hour... unless you want online to be your *entire* life. 😵 Which I don't.

But I still <3 you, OK? 🥂

(note that I'm going to be at work today so the invites may not be coming instantaneously but I assure you I'll get to them in good time; this is, after all, a one-person operation)

Hey you! Yes, you! Do you like ? Do you like small, bespoke instances? Do you abhor hate-peddlers?

If you answered yes to all three of those questions, have I got news for you! I run a little instance called laserdisc.party. We're what I have come to describe as a movie-flavoured general instance. If that sounds like a good time to you, you can check out of code of conduct here: laserdisc.party/about/more

If you're still into it, you can DM me up for an invite!

cant believe someone would be mean on the internet

I just did something highly scientific with the help of guinea pig @derek_g.
You (the admin) can silence an instance but still see everything your friends on that instance are doing. #SCIENCE

@Julia hey there Julia what's up, it's me, Derek. From the Internet.
