PV 4 Thoughts, changes Show more
So, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ve heard me talk about my project PV4, which is Play Vicious 4.
I started it a couple of years ago with the intention of it being a media site that posts stories about all kinds of cool stuff. In part it will still be that.
However after talking to a of really smart people and examing my own motivations for building, I decided to expand what PV4 is going to be. Check it out here: https://www.patreon.com/Are0h
Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.
But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.
My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.
Aye folks. I don't how other instances will operate, but I can promise Social will be a safe space for us to talk openly about issues without wasting effort on people that don't want to listen.
I want honest convo on my instance, but if one cannot do that respectfully and without resorting to childish taunts, they will be shown the door.
I'm the big brother you call when someone is getting on your nerves.
I got your back. Always.
I love #introductions. Let me do a proper one.
I'm Ro. I design, develop, overthink and on occasion, make beats. Check out: https://thetwelfth.house And before you ask, yes. I am.
I'm also a history buff and I think a lot about social theory. Ha, you've been warned.
Needless to say, I got a lot going on. But I'm pretty cool... generally.
I'm still thinking about what I'm going to do about the white dude that tried to troll me, so I trolled him back and he ended up blocking me, so he's been spamming my admin email for the last week.
Part of me just wants to shut down his whole shit because I've spent some time digging into his whole set up, but then again, I find his response so sad and pathetic, I feel like I would cheapen myself be responding to something so silly.
I feel sorry for him more than anything, if I'm honest.
Leftist unity will come through kindness & respect for oppressed people, not the expectation that they tolerate as much cruelty & dehumanization as they can stomach.
If kindness or respect can doom your grand plans for fighting fascists or toppling capitalism to total failure, your plans are shit. Make better ones.
One of my favorite new artists, Issa Reyes, in on this project so I've been meaning to check it out.
I finally sat down and listened to it and I absolutely love it. Easily one of my favorite projects this year.
Never neglect your self care, y'all. That shit is amazing when you stick to it.
A lot of people ask me how I'm able to handle all of the non-sense thrown at me and a big part of it is my self-care routine.
Before I do any work, posting, etc, I have a routine where I get ready for the day and I just kind of pamper myself to set the tone. And it works.
I used to think self care was just something people said, but if you engage it as a practice, it really helps to keep you even everyday.

We need to stop giving people the impression that they can just join any instance and get a view of the entire Fediverse. We keep getting into these arguments because people have joined under that impression and flip out that we're talking about changing the situation. The longer we put off splitting the Fediverse, the more drama there's going to be about it. We need to do it now. And we need to do it together.

growing up, my dad would talk about the time he spent in California, and how (boomer voice) "everyone in California follows the leisure ethic!" He said that meant that they only worked as hard as they had to in order to have enough time & money to go have fun. he saw this as a bad thing.
fuck the Protestant work ethic yall, it's toxic as hell
I think I'm gonna leave OKCupid and just use Tinder.
I haven't been on there a week and I've meet some really cool folks who actually want to go out rather than just talk.
No, there's nothing wrong with conversation, but I like getting out and meeting people so I can figure out the vibe.
And that is happening much more on the Tinders.
Social media samaritans are coming to the rescue of a Trinidadian native, Trevor James, who was arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (#ICE) officers despite being a Green Card holder.
Ha, 99.9% of the people that don't like me/block me are white dudes I had no idea existed until they slobbered their non-sense into my timeline
Just say you don't like Black people and go, boss. Stop playing ping pong with social language and vocabulary you don't understand.
It would make things a lot easier.

mastodon.fail seems to be run by the same ban-evading admin as quey.org

Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
