News flash: blindly being a contrarian in all situations doesn't make you cool, deep, or interesting. It often just exposes your unspoken desire for attention, while extinguishing the desire for anyone to give attention to you. Okay, bye.

I love it when people realize that Black people exist. And not in some, like, ironic or token existence type of way. We're people. And we're Black. And trust me, we go through some SHIT just for being people that are Black. But it's okay to just treat us with the respect we deserve underneath all of the cool and funny shit we bring to the table as well. The people that get that? Y'all are good with me.

I don't watch horror movies. I just think about the fact that is going to make a live-action version of . All the fear I need.

So I've finally decided to check out this Mastodon thing. Simple rundown on me: Black guy from the DMV area that was moderately successful as an independent hip-hop artist. Now a full-time creative streaming games on Twitch and Mixer, along with writing about video games, mobile tech, and music on Medium. The vibe is always chill. When it comes to drama, I'm tryna stay out the way. Come kick it with me.

Opinion: there's never a bad time to eat pancakes.

Fact: there's never a bad time to eat pancakes.

by the way, a cool trick to keep in mind is that fediverse.network has ways of figuring out which instance blocks which.

for example: https://fediverse.network/pleroma.site/federation

so if you ever want to know what is up with an instance, you can just use fediverse.network to find out.

okay, thanks for coming to my TED ta... *pulled off the stage with a shepherding hook*

I've been on here for almost 24 hours, so I think I'm basically an expert and here's my take:
Mastodon has split the difference between a big discord server and Tumblr.
Like,, I'm not talking directly to anyone so it has the Tumblr "shouting into the void" feel, but the void interacts back enough that I can tell that for somewhere somewhere, my shouting is their problem.

Happy Thursday, lovely fediversians.

We're all going through something. That's just a fact life. When one is moving and shaking to be a better person and improve their community around them, it gets hard.

At times, this manifests as some not so great stuff. Aloofness, rudeness, pettiness, even hostility.

I've found it's a good practice to take a step back and give people space in these moments. Don't take it all so personally. Usually, it's not about you.

The walk is just hard sometimes

Good morning Mastodonauts :blobcatcoffee:

I posted this yesterday on Instagram.

We are putting together the second volume and we will include fan art from the community.

If you love someone, ask them how their mental health is today.

At some point in time before the day I die, Ajit Pai has to run my fade, slim. Me and that man gotta square up.

The year is 2060. World War 3 has ended over 30 years ago. The children are now in school, learning how America went through such devastation. And they are informed that it all began when the Nazis were allowed to pass under the radar as America focused on banning porn and adult content.

"i could probably hack that"

New waves of Mastodon users = much time spent wondering if folks know mastodon.social is not the only server on the Fediverse.

Mastodon pro: I can't search for stuff to get mad at
Mastodon con: I can't search for stuff to get mad at

After the Wizards game goes off, I'll likely get back on Twitch for a little bit, playing some more . See y'all around 10:15 PM EST! twitch.tv/theregalreport

yall, @noelle is a main moderator on mastodon.social. she does an incredible amount of work, and they just got 20k new users in the last 24 hours b/c of the tumblr exodus. consider tossing a few $ at her if you can: elekk.xyz/@noelle/998154353638

NOTE TO NEW USERS:

Mastodon's a cool place, but it's private like a local coffee shop, not a home bathroom.

Remember that the admin of your instance can see EVERYTHING you post, including direct posts. They can even disable 2 factor authentication, if you have it enabled (and you should. No really, enable that stuff now.)

Bottom line: Find an instance where you feel you can trust your admin, and don't send direct toots unless you trust the admin at the recipient's instance as well.

Confession: I don't understand a gahdamn word on that "Mo Bamba" hook.

Deltarune was a really fun watch. Toby Fox knows how to make charming stuff, eagerly waiting for the next chapter.
