here is my quick #introduction.
My name is Massimo, I am from Italy and a year ago I had a weird dream about a boy and a strange phenomena.
That image grew in my head and I started writing some short stories (in Italian). I decided to publish them on a personal blog/site – https://crooked.ink. That wasn't enough: bored because of the lockdown, I decided to translate one in English and –a few weeks later– to write another one directly in English.
TL;DR: I think I enjoy writing.
As the crypto wars continue around the world, we must remain vigilant to fight for strong encryption to protect our right to privacy. 💪💪
I fell in love with https://fraidyc.at/ – after a couple of days, it feels better than any other RSS reader I tried
Or worse: "This will be our last kiss"?
This blog post is titled as a very recent pop album, but the main protagonist is post-rock https://crooked.ink/blog/folklore/
Big news for https://crooked.ink! Other than some reviews to the stories (I'll be never happy with them), I managed to add some cool features as:
- Reading time! Now at the top of each story/blog post you can see how much time you'll waste
- Contact form! Because shy people like me prefer to avoid social medias
- The very first story I wrote... -properly- translated in English!
Take look, you will see into your imagination! (yes, this may be a quote)

After a year, I finally translated in English the very first short story I wrote.
It is about a family living in Montana, where once the Crow tribe lived.
They had an interesting creation myth — ever heard about it?
I wrote a very short story called 'The Palace': it is about a very elegant building, yes. And death, too. I'm new to this type of narration, any opinion would be appreciated!
This is my first twoot (tweet + toot), posted on both social networks by a neat script that required much more work that I expected.
As a bonus, here is an interesting link about life lessons. https://www.outsideonline.com/2401643/life-lessons-97-year-old-lobsterman

#nowplaying "Echo and Abyss" by Caspian (from "Dust and Disquiet", 2015)
This is my first toot sent by a script. It integrates with Apple's Music.app and gains some track info... and while reviewing this I realize that the Genre field in iTunes has always been a nightmare. What the heck is 'Alternative & Punk'?
By the way, if you like #postrock, give a try to Caspian!
