"The spectacle, like modern society, is at once unified and divided. Like society, it builds its unity on the disjunction. But the contradiction, when it emerges in the spectacle, is in turn contradicted by a reversal of its meaning, so that the demonstrated division is unitary, while the demonstrated unity is divided."

--Guy Debord, "Society of the Spectacle," Thesis 54

heres what im thinking: whoever said we have to call them instances? thats probably just coder talk from the code of this service/website/app, doesn't mean we have to call them that tho

like how we don't go about calling horses by their latin name unless we need to delve into biology

More annoyed bird venting (hopefully my last) 

"Sure every update just makes Twitter less convenient, we're bombarded by corporate advertisement pretending to engage us meaningfully, innocent users are being suspended daily for standing up to terfs and nazis who suffer no consequences for their harrassment, and Twitter staff has shown Literally Zero Interest in fixing ANY of these issues...but what if my Instance's mod is a jerk and I dont get as many followers there? I dunno you guys. :///"

I will never stop laughing at people who spell rogue “rouge” and I will always think about heavily made-up half elf assassins when they do.

CW Gate becomes the first major conflict of the settlers from the birdsite. What to CW? When to CW? Who gets to say when CW?

toot your friends' horns too!

certified not a horny toot

Looks like Introductions is a common thing here so Hey 👋

I'm a web developer during the day and in my free time I work on side projects under the name voyager.studio.

Right now I'm building a bookmarking tool called Cherrypicked, you can check that out here: cherrypicked.io

Re last: Also, Emacs Mastodon client is nice. No annoying curl errors popping up from the blasted Twit API.

I've already been on here more than I've been on Twitter. Why? More ineresting people, and the Mastodon API's will hopefully never be choked off like Twitter. And 500 characters, rather than 280.

Do you think right wing Star Trek fans even realize the show takes place in a socialist utopian future? I wonder about this a lot.

For Mac users, Boom3D works great with headphones, but you have to turn the headphones up a little, move than one click from mute that is, to get the effect.

The mastodon stages:

1: getting used to the interface

2: discovering that most people are just people, engaged in everyday adventures, big & small

3: the allure of the notification sound

4: a gradual getting used to the fact that not everything is about US politics, and that it's okay to filter it out on a macro level

5: a quiet moment when you think "there can still be poetry in this world"

6: some sort of reconciliation with the quantum magic that is the federated timeline

7: pineapples

I look for you during the night,my spirit within me seeks you at dawn,for when your judgments come upon the earth,those who live in the world learn about justice. 26:9
