It's been a big week for the fediverse so i'm doing another introduction and a new Pinned Toot.
I'm boanus. I like anarchy, learning, cartoons, Star Trek, video games, etc.
I have a career in software development (which i hate) that loosely reflects my interest in the theory of computation (which i love).
I use this instance as my tooting-from-work account, but i have two others. A locked account at @boanus for personal/political toots and another public one at @boanus for livetoots.

OOOOooh baby all i want to do right now is buy things on craigslist and build a giant machine of music and probable death
I feel like this video hasn't gotten enough love (but i'm also not one to make my toots public) so i'll give some background. A daxophone is simply a flat piece of wood, or tongue, that is bowed like a violin and vibrates to produce noise. You can fret the tongue with a "dax" -- which is just another piece of wood -- to change its pitch. What comes out is something similar in sound to a human voice mixed with a string instrument mixed with a reed instrument mixed with a badger.
Here's a meetup alternative still in development that i'm going to follow too https://joinmobilizon.org/en/
