Bandcamp will be holding a fundraiser tomorrow to support artists, during which they're waiving their side of the revenue share.
If you've been thinking about getting some new #music, or supporting an independent artist, that would be a great time to do it.
I took a taxi because I thought it’d be better than public transport for social distancing.
I was surprised the driver didn’t have hand sanitizer.
Then I was surprised he was touching his face.
Then I was surprised he was biting his nails.
By the time I noticed he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt I wasn’t surprised anymore.
On the way back, I had a driver who was wearing a mask and listening to a radio program about developing a vaccine.
@JPEG Trying the new Mast... seems less configurable than I remember but faster/smoother.
I’d like to be able to show the full account name @user@server instead of username in feeds.
Username gets blocked if a toot is hidden, so you don’t know whose toot it is unless you recognize the icon.
If text describing the hidden toot is very long, it extends a bit above & below the size of the toot.
Full width images are a great idea.
#nobot sigh why are bots opt out instead of opt in?
The taxi driver spoke very little English, and the time on the screen of his phone showed numbers I did not recognize. But he knew the roads. For most of the trip, the computer stuck to the window kept telling him to turn the wrong way. It was annoying and also silly. Turn right says the computer, and he turns left. Turn right and then turn right again, it says: he goes straight. We arrived five minutes early.
The train car was quiet. Excuse me, said a man loudly, and we all took him for a beggar, but then he said Does anyone know downtown, Can you tell me the best stop for, and he gave an address. A completely reasonable request, polite, and surely most people could have answered. Silence. Is that the kind of world we’ve made? I suck at directions, I had a guess but wasn’t sure, started to think maybe I should say anyway. Then someone finally answered, mumbling.
and Karen said It’s crazy for me to spend all day in the kitchen if we’re not even going to use all the chairs, well my first thought was if I accidentally broke one, it’s a bit tight around the table with all nine anyhow, but the thing is one of them might really break some day and it’d be good to have a spare, so I thought who do I know that won’t already have plans or want to bring anyone along, and Karen’s a really good cook, so anyway how about coming by tonight and making it an even nine?
I was so enthralled with Bach that I almost forgot, but I made it to the bookstore 3 minutes before closing. #snowden (does he have a mastodon? it seems like he should)
When possible, I escape to the woods.
