@mxsiege we have lived in a world where Charles Mingus has taught us how to toilet train cats for 70 years

@mxsiege i learned about this from the alt text of an achewood comic and i still think about it every single day

@zatnosk hmm i mean i have seen many people playing these pianos.

@mxsiege it's definitely more portable than most pianos. But there's a curious lack of hammers, and very few strings. Can't be good for more than very simple melodies.

@mxsiege cj there are some things i'd just never know if i didn't follow you

@Garrison like a cat that you're not sure how it keeps on getting into your flat, i leave various dead things and hairballs of delight in your shoes.
