Confession: I am still brainwashed by social networks. I've avoided the SEO or social media blogs & experts and yet I think like a marketer when it comes to my posts. I just posted a bunch of stuff about to birb site because I thought it would be seen by more people. WHY DO I EVEN CARE? WHAT IS IT THAT I WANT TO HAPPEN WITH THOSE POSTS?

I'm not a brand. . We are a pack species. We need each other, not exposure, clicks, or likes. Relationships are not a commodity.

Anyone ever use Phoenix OS? Thinking of trying it on my unused Nexus 10 tablet.

I'll just have to get the show notes done and then onto another episode of edits. We're coming up on number 100 soon.
I have an idea to celebrate which will require some more editing.
However, today I may be done. Tired me is tired.

ME: Don't forget to promote the podcast!
MY MIND: So much for live listeners. Stupid, stupid, me.
ME: Don't forget to promote the podcast!

MY MIND: Give up! You suck.
ME: Don't listen to that! It's talking.
MY MIND: I mean isn't it you talking?
ME: Well...
MY MIND: So, which voice do you listen to when there's really only one voice?
ME: Sorry there's no live podcast tonight, I have a headache.

If you're in the market for DNS freedom, you should definitely ditch & then visit to pick some fresh, homegrown, local, open DNS servers.

Tonight we review Wanted on Film Frown with our friend @cuibonobo!

Listen at 6pm PDT, 7pm MTN, 8pm CDT, 9pm EDT.

A clan of weaver assassins was born in a monastery. This is what I'm learning from Wanted.

Watching it for tomorrow night's Film Frown podcast live.

Super glad I went to writing for recovery again. The challenges presented in the group bring our the creativity and fiction inside me that remains hidden from my articles.

@kai do you have the search feature now that upgraded?

Yo smart people, I have a question:
Statistics can be manipulated by asking questions to manipulate the results. Researchers get paid to find the results clients want to see.

Are algorithms just as easily manipulated? If an algorithm is created to count the letter 'e' use on Mastodon and we only give it 6 instances to look at, one being, things will be misrepresented, correct?

I'm confused.
You're advertising that you are a 4-time founder/CEO?
Is that a good thing?
"Hi! I'm all about pumping and dumping!"
Maybe I'm being too negative.

I wanted more fine tip water brush pens, so I decided to try a different brand, Arteza. Compared to the Pentel Aquash, these have much finer control of water. They consistently keep the brush wet without user intervention. Plus, when I do squeeze to add water, it is in much smaller amounts, giving me more control.
There's 1 spot to squeeze for water, which is an adjustment compared to the Pentels. I found my self pushing for water, but I didn't have my fingers in the right spot.

Is influencer a career path now? Asking for my friends at Taco Bell, where you can get cheap, delicious food-like eats.

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

@deadsuperhero I just had someone drop for the other Bond parody that we're reviewing on April 26th at 7pm MTN. Interested?

If not, no problem. I thought I'd offer.

Doing show notes thanks to @deadsuperhero reminding me about the upcoming releases of the podcast.
