Guns 'N' Roses - Get in the Ring

Stupid song, but I love it. Reminds me of being 12 and thinking it was cool because of the swearing ;)

How did the atheist movement die so ignominiously? One specific incident was the canary in that coalmine, just before the explosion.

"You are not the โ€˜Great Creatorโ€™ of your songs, you are simply their servant, and the songs will come to you when you have adequately prepared yourself to receive them. They are not inside you, unable to get out; rather, they are outside of you, unable to get in. Songs, in my experience, are attracted to an open, playful and motivated mind. (...) sit down, prepare yourself and write your own damn song. You are a songwriter. You have the entire world to save and very little time to do it. The song will find its way to you. If you donโ€™t write it, someone else will. Is that what you want? If not, get to it." Nick Cave, issue #43 of the Red Hand Files

Kitten pic from the weekend. Mick sleeping on my lap, and Blixa looking a bit weird next to us ;)

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

KITTEN DAY!!!! ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿ˜บ

Can't wait til I finish work and our little kittens are delivered!

I like these temporary platforms used to test demand/objections in potential cycle parking locations - https://www.eta.co.uk/2019/05/17/reclaim-streets-beyond-parklet/

Last time visiting these two at the shelter yesterday, next time we see them will be in our house :)
