Hm, it looks like Diaspora "ignore" doesn't actually apply to comments from a user, just their posts.

Seems like the sort of thing that would have been ironed out early on.

The thing I grieve most for future generations is that they may never experience the joy of Iron Maiden "Powerslave" for fear that it is "Dad Rock".

Hey, can I just say, because capitalist propaganda is so hard to unlearn:

If you have a job, any kind of job at all, I'm so proud of you. This shit is hard. Working, period, is hard.

And if you don't have a job? That doesn't make you lesser than the people who do have one.

We all deserve the same level of respect as human beings. Capitalism fails to uphold what should be a law of human rights.

@mwlucas gave a great talk at the Michigan!/usr/group ( last night on Free BSD

Label: (takes all legal means of obtaining music offline).
Musician: I don't make any money off of my music
Youtube: Hey kid, tough going. Here's a nickel. Call someone who cares.

Really getting tired of bands being on Bandcamp and then signing to a particular label and having their entire Bandcamp discography vanish.

Because if you look up "The Browning" you'd be hard pressed to find any of their previous albums at all.

I don't understand musicians and the music industry sometimes.

I think one of the main reasons I like being on Mastodon is because of @sara 's work on . It's a joy to use.

Feeling grateful that Mastodon has some excellent command-line interfaces. Have tried to get several working for Diaspora and each of them is failing in frustrating ways.

I also feel compelled to say: while I've dropped my main source of income, I'm not at serious risk of being kicked out of my apartment or etc and many people are on harder times. I'm doing contracting and I have a savings buffer. Partly I am trying to put my excess privilege to good use because I don't think there are many people who are in the position I'm in who *can* and have the experience I do.

If it's between donating to me and something more urgent in your life, take care of yourself.

Listening to @mwlucas talk about FreeBSD at the Michigan!/usr/group meeting.

Watch the live-stream with us:

so maybe now #mastodon can be my replacement for Google+. who posts #RPG stuff I should be following?

King Crimson is one of the few bands I know of that can write a pop song that makes musicians tremble from time signature fatigue.

I just had the exact conversation that proves we’re all fucked forever, thanks for coming to my TED talk.

The great thing about computers is that they're so consistent.

Save for when they aren't.

Ok, so now I need to follow a bunch of people here to talk about roleplaying games, history, de-colonization, how cool rocks are, probably some other stuff. I guess ping this if that sounds cool to you and I'll follow you back?
