Slowly starting to transition to @kevinflo - Tons of changes I still want to make to the instance (it's currently stock mastodon, but will eventually be a fairly opinionated fork) but it's at least live and stable

Absolutely floored by Sunshine Rock. How do you write something that goes this hard 4 decades in?? Bob Mould redefines how I see dedication, passion, work, age, and most of all in 2019... Rock and roll

I can’t wait to see what Mitski does next

Finding a game I can play well from my laptop while traveling (auto chess) was bad for my sleep schedule... But yay I won one finally!

So proud of my former roomie for launching her kickstarter for an amazing weighted blanket! She really put so much into getting it to this point. Let's see how the fediverse does in getting the word out

Practicing pronunciation and ending up with a pretty funny vocab word of the day

“Critics of the big tech companies are often told, ‘If you don’t like the company, don’t use its products.’ I did this experiment to find out if that is possible, and I found out that it’s not—with the exception of Apple. These companies are unavoidable because they control internet infrastructure, online commerce, and information flows. Many of them specialize in tracking you around the web, whether you use their products or not”

Must be hard to get exposure like this... everything is background music wrapped in an anime avatar wrapped in a handle wrapped in a dream. Who knows who Lokan is or how you go from seeing them as `now playing` to being a fan or following their work but they're definitely a cool producer youtube.com/watch?v=FQeoqOgDAF

This new ecosystem makes me feel old, which is a relief because maybe things are going somewhere

Encouraged by stuff like aviencloud.com/radio - smallish community with 24/7 live stream of indie electronic music. Open submissions for new stuff. Not very genre-pigeonholed. Interesting that this is the current form of this kind of DIY thing in that it exists only on youtube/discord and is intended as background music. Was watching a music producer's twitch stream and when he heard something good said "you should submit it to aviencloud" like it's an indie artist stepping stone. Good tunes

You can write art as supreme as tsukema tsukeru and have it go viral outside your hemisphere. If you get sick of me rambling about Yasutaka Nakata it's largely because he exemplifies more than anyone else how borderline content can be stretched to contain the highest of high art

The meme is the dominant form of music distribution, like the album once was. The best artists now are working to trojan horse within that creative constraint. It's still scrounging for scraps in terms of artistic palette, but the best artists can flex even within that

Who is Louis Cole? Ask youtube and you only get his borderline content. He's relatively concretely two sided and the top results speak clearly as to which side of his is silenced
