I was told once that Mastodon is a friendly void that yells back. I really like that.

The world is a big place filled with terrible and wonderful things. I sometimes comment on them at length.

The thing I'm most appalled by with regards to this pandemic is that oligarchs took away our agency and stole our ability to protect ourselves from a deadly virus.

@StillIRise1963 and we have cheered them on.

I don't understand how people on the ground who personally commit atrocities under a flag can come home and just live a full life like a normal person.

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@StillIRise1963 I'm in the same boat. How do you possibly just...exist.

I am pretty adept at learning others. I think I could learn them, but I don't know if it would be worth it.

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@StillIRise1963 yeah I completely understand that.

I grew up around people who honestly believed that their station in life, the amount of money they had been given, or the color of their skin somehow made them better or worse than others around them. They didn't say it to impress others, these people were true believers.

I understand them, but I don't want to. What it takes for me to understand them is painful for me. Bad memories and things like that you know?

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@StillIRise1963 oh absolutely. I wouldn't change me for my past for anything. I'm not saying that I've lived a life free of regrets, but I can assure you that removing connectedness to people to worship at that altar is not something I will ever regret.

I am quarantined and mad and starting to drink beer. If anyone would like my sweary opinions on random things and/or sweary historical analysis, now would be the time to ask.

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@GrimmReality considering our reluctant approach to a digital norm, do you think CD changers should exist anymore?

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@GrimmReality :blobcatlaugh: that does sound rather steampunk or something now.

I meant for the home, but perhaps in your car too.

Like, in the before time if I wanted to buy the new tool CD I just gave the money and I own the cd. Now, not exactly sure that system still is in place. Or is not going to continue to be in place. As we move further and further into streaming, it seems that most industry wants us to become comfortable with the idea of renting. So how do we reconcile renting the latest tool CD? Is the idea of owning music a thing of the past? Just kind of curious.

mentallyalex,
@mentallyalex@beige.party avatar

@GrimmReality literally my complaint.

I grew up loving music and supporting that music with my hard-earned dollars. I spent so many years caressing and pouring through albums, album artwork and cover art. It's a whole experience unto itself. I know you know.

I fear we have decided to pocket everything and just give all the manufacturers rental fees for the songs. It seems like vinyl, discs etc are moving into past tense.

Trying to find a name for my game's main character that isn't copyrighted and has a url that's available. After a lot of searching, I'm going with Bqmgphevuy.

The only place you’ll get this configuration of dudes living together is prison.

So I guess that’s good news for Andrew.

@Daojoan I find it adorable that he finds millionaire businessmen to be a whole vibe.

Like, someone will introduce themselves, "Hi my name is Alex. I'm a Gemini and millionaire businessmen. Can we move into a house together with 2 other guys?"

What a totally normal and completely reasonable thing for people to say. :blobcatfacepalm:

It does wear a body down, being constantly at the mercy of so many motherfuckers.

@theropologist taking time for ourselves is critical. Moreso for those of us who routinely sacrifice for others.

If there is something we can do, we are available.

@Skepticat Dear SoAndSo,
Regarding your fourth request for my input on this project I would like to remind you that in certain cultures this could be misconstrued as an elaborate courting ritual.

In order to maintain appearances, my spouse has requested a hand fasting ceremony to bring you into our family as second partner. Please dress accordingly.

Because of the cold snap we are having, or maybe because I'm feeling down, I'm eating like it's the week between Christmas and New Year.

It's not going well. Or it's going too well...? 🤷‍♀️🙄

On lunch 2 today.

@Waitnwallflower oh God that was me last night.

You can buy butterfinger by the little pack because of Easter right now. Just...in case you were unaware. :blobcat_nervoussweat:

I typically start drinking water by the liter to slow it down. :blobcatlaugh:

Evidently my friend wants to jump into an arctic fjord and then sit in a sauna when we’re in Tromsø and I could not do that and be ok. But hey, why not. Chris Hemsworth says it’s good for you.

mentallyalex,

@tayfonay will he BE there? Because that might change my response. :blobcatlaugh:

That sounds like an experience you almost HAVE to try though right? It might be a bit niche but experience is one of the best things to gather on trips, right?

@the_etrain still heating it up. I scared Zara and have her running on a treadmill to generate power. She's not very fast but I figure after 5 or so minutes I'll have enough power reserved.

This was my dinner. Dave made them. He calls them "Georgian cheese bread boat" because neither of us can pronounce what they're really called. It's a boat made out of bread and filled with ricotta, feta, mozzarella, and topped with a fried egg, melted butter, and parsley. Oh my god, I could eat my weight in these.

Georgia knows where it's at. 🇬🇪

TimTam crossed the rainbow bridge today. He was 17 years old. It was peaceful, at home in Mum's arms.

Please hug your puppers for me.

RIP TimTam. Thank you for being my Mum's world. You were the best boy. 🌈

@Jorsh the absolutely bestest of boys. How absolutely wonderful you were able to spend so many years with such a good friend. Thank you for sharing with us.
