'Mastadon is grumbling - and many blame my crap article'

yeah mastodon is definitely a pretty white place especially if you're in techbro "daddy Dom" land but I follow and interact with more poc on here than like anywhere else AND have seen their voices be boosted and heard more than most places without having to be rockstar users so maybe it ain't as a bad as it seems

I cobbled together a Blur album-that-could-have-been from their non-album tracks - I'm calling it 'Commuting'.
Enjoy!

Reminder that when I asked my little brothers (9 and 12) what they want to do when they grow up, they told me they plan to move into an apartment together and start a youtube channel.

'Ooh cool,' I said. 'What will it be about?'

They looked at each other. The older brother shrugged, and the younger said, 'I don't know. Spiders?'

I will never give a fuck about what a razor company has to say about anything. Everyone's so easily baited. You're playing into the hands of a corporation who doesnt really give a fuck to begin with. Viral marketing is a cancerous tumor on society's ass.

*whispers* toxic femininity is a thing and while it shouldn't be brought up to disregard toxic maculinity the fact remains that we live in gendered societies. Some of these gendered situations are upheld by women regardless if they arose due to patriarchal rulings in the past.

*whispers* there is a real difference between toxic masculinity and sexism and disregarding this hurts men.

*whispers* some of you keep using words wrong, that has consequences for how future gender discourses happen.

Did my first Pokémon commission! This is @Aerdan 's dragon/fairy Eevveelution - with some elm and oak blossom.
I'm very happy with it, and now have a hankering to do more pokémon commissions

I've been thinking about music discovery some more and I'm coming to the conclusion that music discovery is a problem that will probably never be entirely solved using a non-human algorithm (ex - Discover Weekly) [pedantically, yes I know that algorithm is written by humans]

some degree of human curation is needed in the process for it to be truly effective, be it a friend telling you to "hey check out this album" or a Bandcamp editor or a random comment on r/listentothis

i continue to complain about voyager and i cannot be stopped Show more

So, Voyager generally had underwhelming, or even flat-out bad alien designs. But! It did have some gems. Here's one, that can only be displayed in video form

I recently read an article by @andyAstruc about utopias in video games that is particularly poignant here:

"In a sense, most utopian worlds in fiction are simply dystopias viewed from a different angle, or early in the transformative process. The truth of the matter is right there in the origin of the word: utopia is Greek for “no place”; the very concept of a utopia is fantasy, even inside a fictional world."
