Still loving the J-music ensemble's perfume covers. Nakata's jazz influence comes out so strong with that instrumentation and the vocal parts are a perfect fit for a horn section. As stellar as they are, it makes me want even more fleshed out ones with more of the crazy harmonies represented

Well I have literally zero idea what could get people not currently on the fediverse to join to check it out, but time to start having fun throwing things at the wall in my free time and seeing what sticks

Step one feels like it might be to start posting fediverse-related content *outside* of the fediverse, so I made socials for Tinyfed where I can do that

New PC day! Open box microcenter deal means I'm retiring my 4+ yr old one (gtx970) with a new gtx2080/8700k. Finally can hit max settings on those AAA titles

To those from the meetup who doubted... my baby is flourishing, stylish pin and all ❤️🌿❤️🌿❤️🌿

Also a perfect example of how google going all in on RCS when it lacks end-to-end encryption is so unforgivable

A baker's dozen of y'all signed up and I love ya for it. Thanks for helping me get the ball rolling with

It's crystal clear that more needs to be done to encourage new mastodon users to find people to follow and stick around, but regardless people are at least interested enough to register which is so cool. A fine start if you ask me!


Of all the signups so far from the instance launching today, literally none of them followed anyone. Onboarding is a colossal, behemoth, showstopper level unsolved problem in the fediverse at the moment.

The launch explainer video is live on my old social media profiles. Anyone joining, be sure to find 5-10 accounts to follow or else you won't see new posts and it won't be interesting. Maybe find one person you think is interesting and follow some people they follow. is a directory of some accounts on the fediverse grouped by interest

Also tomorrow morning I plan to "launch" tinyfed! For now this basically just amounts to me posting the following explainer video on my currently dormant social media profiles and seeing if anyone is interested. LMK if you have any feedback on the video or the concept for the instance

Tinyfed is now on mastodon v2.8.2 🎉🎉🎉

Adam Neely’s new video with sax player/bandleader Patrick Bartley is such a perfect synopsis of the very `music/composition nerd` place my love for Nakata’s music and Japanese music in general comes from

Loved the mayday festivities at Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis!

Just linked my to this account... very nifty that it works but I'm unconvinced keybase is the best way to solve the problems it's trying to solve. Social graph construction/identity are extremely unsolved problem in the fediverse. Dunno know how this gets solved in an elegant way without centralization. Tough to compete with a world where your @ on insta is the end-all-be-all for a digital point of contact. How/when could a fediverse account be given verbally to a new acquaintance?

I hope that in my lifetime I'll get to describe to a child that we used to let human beings manually drive cars around at highway speed and they'll think what I'm describing sounds absolutely insane.
