@Gargron Heya. Do you have a blog post about not having boosts-with-comments? I think it's good and would like to point people to an explanation for why it's good.

I've come to appreciate masto's boost-only system so much that I now spend a lot of time defending a similar system on pillowfort.

People are really tied to the idea that they are owed retweet/blog with quotes AND that it's Good.

Amazon is going to make a series out of Cat Valente's The Refrigerator Monologues.

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

Saw yesterday. The audience gasped in shock and surprise MANY times. And there were mmhmms, and cheers throughout.

A vocal audience is the best.

This movie is such a jaw-dropper.

Love this mueller advent calendar very festive

Poor Pillowfort. It's back up and being bombarded into the ground by people trying to access it and sign up and post.

A good problem to have, I guess? But they need a bigger server and a CDN.

*waves at all the new users*
This was my first account, but I moved to a smaller instance where I am more cozy and the federated timeline doesn't move as quickly.

If you're comfy on .social that's great! But if it's not quite the right fit, take a wander. That's the beauty of the fediverse. Migrating instances is pretty simple or do what I did and just set up an alt somewhere.

Normalize paying your instance admins and mods. This place is not free. Hosting isn't free, time isn't free, and good instances are a lot of work.

If you're financially able to, start getting used to the idea that you need to pay for good communities.

@chris How's the ship? Tumblr is imploding, so you might see a bump in users.

@pixelfed Man, if you could figure out how to get fanartists to adopt pixelfed... Tumblr is imploding right now because they're banning all erotica images.

And now my social media is all SPN spoilers.

Me: What herbal things can I make my aunt to try to assist in cancer prevention?

Pubmeb: Dandelion root extract kills pancreatic cancer cells. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/226477

Me: 😐Nice to know. My mom died of that.

So this this week cancer came for my aunt and one of my friends. Both have very good prognoses, but it's enough now.

Want to see an opera in Scots and Gaelic? My friend just helped with Dido and Aeneas.

My roommate has picked up watching Farscape again.

We just watched The Saddest Episode.
