The vinyl re-presses of the Nausicaa, Laputa and Totoro soundtracks are freaking amazing 😍

mastodon.social still has open registrations because it represents Gargron's vision of the "Mastodon network", that's it, that's all

From Paris to Oakland? Window seats are still good.

So did anyone build an Spotify-year-in-review lookalike for people like me who aren't on Spotify but use Last.fm to scrobble? 🙈

(Do I have to make this as a side project for next year? 🤔)

Just finished the 5 seasons of Brooklyn 99 after 2 weeks of binging. I feel empty now.

If an instance goes away, or you decide you like another instance's UX/features more— well, you can repost stuff, you can shrug off content that's lost, you can let your friends know, ~oh, did you hear? I'm on fuckspace.industries now~. You can do these things *IF* Mastodon is a fun little side thing where we do our low-pressure social networking. This is not feasible or adequate if Mastodon is actually meant to be a *replacement* for Twitter.

The lack of an account migration idiom on Mastodon really is fatal, it is sincerely a thing that keeps me from recommending Mastodon to people. The witches.town evaporation to me was kind of like a disproof of the fediverse and I feel like maybe the fediverse dev community should have treated it as such. There needs to be a way to recover your account, "toots", and follower network if one instance goes away.

Okay so tumblr is banning rotating cubes saying it's porn and facebook banned saying "i'm gay" saying it's sexual solicitation and Twitter always seemed like it could disappear at any moment

I feel like we need to be getting ready for Mass Migration to Mastodon, which means we need to fix anything that keeps Mastodon from being usable, and there is in fact something that keeps Mastodon from being usable, there's one specific thing, it's this:

A stranger, in the US: Where are you from?

Me: from France!

yall, @noelle is a main moderator on mastodon.social. she does an incredible amount of work, and they just got 20k new users in the last 24 hours b/c of the tumblr exodus. consider tossing a few $ at her if you can: elekk.xyz/@noelle/998154353638

On one hand: less worry about compatibility

On the other hand: more worry about Chrome because of it being non spec compliant on a lot of things 😬

I see Tumblr is going for the "make everything an algorithm and don't hire humans for reviewing stuff" route. That worked so well for YouTube.

Cool, cool cool.
