Shameless plug: I’m doing a DJ set tonight from 8pm -> midnight US Eastern time. If you’re looking for a virtual party to see off 2020, join in!

Before You Get Mad About The CentOS Stream Change, Think About…
House raided and computers seized for telling the truth on #COVID19.
Question for the fediverse: I’m a hobbyist DJ that does a livestream set every Friday night. How do I promote myself _without_ using the typical social media channels? I have a website for my DJ persona but I don’t really see any way of promoting myself if I want to avoid Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the like...
I am fairly certain the election lawsuits will not pan out. Election officials (republicans _and_ democrats, depending on the state) knew they would be under the microscope and so they did everything as “by the book” as possible. Happy to debate this with you if you think differently; I’m not a party zealot and I’m always willing to consider reasonable evidence.
That all said, with the election behind us... I’m looking forward to not caring about politics for a while.
As a US citizen who has already cast their vote, I'm going off grid promptly at the end of my work day today, and I'll check back in tomorrow. There's enough fear and anxiety in my household and my extended family without my contributions.
When it comes to panic over things that we can't control -- like, how votes are counted in other states, or how many lawyers each party has -- a particular Zen proverb comes to mind:
"Let go, or be dragged."
I respect everyone’s right to their opinion. And I disagree with Donald Trump’s base of followers on what direction our country should be going. But I don’t think that referring to them as “those MAGA fuckers” is the way forward either.
If that is the level of discourse you want to have... just realize that you aren’t creating a space for meaningful conversation.
