Pinned toot

A note for anyone seeing this profile from my Twitter: I won't allow followers if I can't be sure who you are. I talk sometimes about personal things on here, and would rather keep that to people I trust.

As great as Mastodon's privacy settings are, they're still not up to scratch compared to Livejournal.

All those American TV shows for truck drivers, renovations, auctions... the ones that have recurring people on them...

Everyone on them has to have one-liners and quips, and that only highlights how manufactured all the personalities are, and it's *so painful* to overhear.

It already felt like those kinds of programs have "characters" more then professional workers on them, but I think noticing the quips is what's highlighted what tips it off for me.

I hung out with a friend in VRChat as a squeak.

We rode on a constellation whale.

Hm. Firefox doesn't seem to do RSS any more. Or at least, I check my site's RSS and it spews out the raw XML.

Just kinda wonder if there's any point to my site having it in that case...


Of *course* social networking would turn tons of queer people into reactionaries.

It's literally founded on "engagement".

Idle thought: the continued creation of knowledge-based gameshows perpetuates the presumption that knowing specific things is seen as worth more than the ability to research things.

I appreciate Mastodon adding a single-column "mobile" view mode as it's much cleaner than multi-column hell, but I wish I could also force it to use the tab-based mode rather than putting links in a list on the right side.
