@not_on_pizza @alx this kind of music used to play before every single c64 game back in the day. uh, at least the ones you got for free that is πŸ˜‰

@beervana I hope they don't change their formulas. They make some of the best beer, albeit not always easy to find and not the cheapest either. In fact there's even a replica medieval village out here that (off-label) serves Nut Brown as their tavern ale.
Maybe they could do away with the coal and all though πŸ˜‚

@intentionaut there's a lot of people on mastodon who want to figure out how we can help or mitigate that problem that people are apparently having. because we think the freedom that this platform gives us is very powerful for society, and we'd hate to see people go back to billionaire controlled sites. that would not be a win for people.

@thetitanborn is there a way to mitigate this or is it just natural and unavoidable with growth?

would new instances help or hurt?

is there a way to fine-tune follows / tags to minimize?

@thetitanborn i literally had an argument with someone last month on reddit about why americans talk about politics so much, i'm like, because politics is literally the discourse of what is affecting the people. it got very "no it isn't - yes it is" and i was flummoxed.

@benjaminwittes i mean what is he supposed to do, come back and have a beer with biden?
let's don't stan the surveillance state.

My team at work just launched new research on the #TwitterMigration: We analyze which platforms are growing - especially #Mastodon, #Tumblr & #Post.

We look at which sites users are adding to their Twitter bios, posting to their friends about & downloading apps for.

Please do boost this, and love to hear any comments or feedback on it!

Depression 

I can tell my new antidepressants are doing wonders. There is a particular sad Christmas song I listen to every year and it always makes me moody and weepy. But it's just not hitting the same this year. I don't feel the sad. It isn't resonating the same as it usually does. Kind of cool tbh. Medication is great.

@straphanger most of the acela route is on the same old ROWs as old amtrak, and the tracks go down fairly close to the coast, and all the waterfront communities demand the train stay slow so it makes less noise. rhode island and connecticut ROWs in particular are pointlessly slow. Doing on old track routes is half assed, but it's what we have.

Back when I would sometimes take work trips to NYC the delta shuttle and acela cost the same yet the acela took twice as long.

@gbhnews used to work with a guy years ago in that was on a team. back then i didn't even know what curling was.

You have up watch this. LeBron James questions why the media repeatedly asked him about Kyrie Irving sharing the documentary on his social media but hasn’t asked him once about his thoughts on the Jerry Jones photo. We know why but much respect to Lebron for making this point πŸ‘ŠπŸΎ. twitter.com/etanthomas36/statu
