Just learned that George Floyd was a part of the legendary group Screwed Up Click back in the 90s. Billboard’s got a good summary of his career and links to several of his songs. billboard.com/articles/columns

While we protest his horrific death at the hands of police brutality, I also want to learn about his life and celebrate it. Black lives matter, and his black life matters.

I could really do with a good Spanish-speaking moderator right now. Any help appreciated! #mastoadmin

These end abruptly due to power loss from thunderstorms. One can see the storm roll in quickly and then poof no lights.

Bonus points: at payment, there's an option to cover processing fees so the org gets 100% of the donation. Great idea. I left it on.
