I try to stay pretty agnostic and centrist in most things, and welcome thoughtful productive discussion in my social media. But I'll put this out there real quick for anyone who follows me and doesn't know me --just in case you made a mistake:

I want nothing to do with bitcoin and nft. You can go blue in the face trying to convince me there is a net gain to any of that and I will not resuscitate you.

I have zero tolerance for any social or political stances that do not respect people as people. Other peoples' bodies are not yours to discuss or decide what to do with, nor is how they choose to identify themselves. The color of someone's skin, where they were born, or the origin of their ancestry has no weight on their value as person.

We are all one on this earth, in this universe, and are irrevocably bound together.

The new Chrono Romancer EP, Krieger, is available for download on bandcamp and streaming on all major streaming platforms!
(Just search for "Chrono Romancer" 😃 )

My wife, our friends, and I worked hard to make this happen. Give it a listen!

I'm still looking for a good instance to post it up on...

I have a sudden odd inspiration to write songs inspired by peeps I follow here on Mastodon; just name each track by their username and see what happens...

@nebunez @gabek I hear a common theme here that I totally relate with and don't think a lot of people would truly get unless they've tried to be a leader. For me, it's music, and I led a trio that saw some good regional popularity but I did all the booking and everything (although they did always show up reliably, heh) and then the piano player wanted to do their own thing, and eventually I just started my own trio with hired guns but then you don't have that team spirit keeping you going AND still have to do everything. So I retrained myself at the piano after a decade of primarily being a sideman myself so I didn't have to rely on ANYBODY - but I realized after some years that in fact I was relying on the then monthly startups and eventually on the monoliths and was spending way too much time learning how to optimize for this platform and the api for the other that I could have been spent doing the ART which, finally, I saw that I had and always would rely most on the people who get what I do, and that any focus after making something worth sharing has to be facilitating community. Owncast has been one of the very most important tools for me in achieving that by allowing me and the people who like to listen to me play a secure place independent of the platforms that profit from being gatekeepers to relationships. So infinite thanks to Gabe. 🤎 ✊ (P.S. This coulda been so much longer, I'm actually only halfway through the video lol)

NewPipe got borked by a Google change, but it's already close to being fixed after just a few hours. Oh, FOSS people <3

I'm working in a #wayland compositor for #Emacs using Emacs native modules similar to EXWM but customized to my taste. I had no idea that it can this much fun.

This didn't get a lot of attention when I posted it on here... ok! But maybe I should re-state why it's interesting.

If you've wanted to get into Scheme or SICP, this is like a from-0-experience Scheme tutorial that compresses about 3/4 of SICP's core into an hour / 30 pages!

I promised to share some discussion around discovery of decentralized content. It mostly consists of some personal opinions and high level ideas. It is a topic that I find myself thinking about, but don't see a lot of talk about elsewhere.

Retro console question:

I just acquired a Gen 1 Sega Genesis (called Mega Drive internationally, I believe?). I wasn't a Sega kid really, but it has what looks like an 8-pin DIN connector for AV out. I confirmed with a spare plug that it's physically compatible.

Is this interchangeable with SCART/composite cables I have for the VIC-20 or C-64? I've got an RGB cable on order, but it'll be a while before it gets here. Just want to know if I should dig out those cables to test the Genesis.

i saw some posts here about badass warrior women so i thought i’d pitch in too and tell you all about kumander liwayway (“commander dawn”), a member of the hukbalahap - the guerilla resistance forces against japanese occupation of the philippines during world war II

she was known for dressing formally & wearing red lipstick in battle 💋
