Narrate unusual stories.
Write songs and minimalist music.
Contemplate the meaning of it all. (Ontology.)

Probably older than you.

Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit. You can follow their official account at:

➡️ @LemmyDev

You can try the flagship instance at

They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)


Good morning. I'd forgotten that I'd even started a podcast on that site!

If I started a self-care IRC channel to discuss various aspects of self-care, would you be interested?

(Please boost.) Thanks!

Do you want more people to notice your posts on Mastodon and the Fediverse?

✅ Use hashtags on your public posts if you want people to find them. For privacy reasons, the only way to search on Mastodon is by hashtag, so if there are no hashtags the posts will not appear in search results.

It is totally ok to use lots of hashtags if your posts deals with lots of different topics! Don't be embarassed to have a list of hashtags at the end 😄

"A great many so-called "gutter bums" and "hoboes" and other assorted "street people" are Awake; they are Divine Rulers in their own kingdoms and queendoms and otherdoms. Only when you look them in the eye do you really see them; and then, they see you."

I haven't been on Masto for a day or so. I've added you to my "VIP" list so as not to miss anything. 😉

Can anyone recommend a keyboard stand?
I don't like mine.. It's an X frame, it's height is controlled by pushing a pin through holes in a circular thing.. But it's either just too high or too low. See picture.. it is quite a common mechanism

Can anyone recommend a keyboard stand that's continuously variable?
Bonus points for two tier and cheap.

Whilst entering the UK, the husband of a couple got detained and taken by the police, the wife is distraught and doesn't know what to do. I'm travelling with her now and supporting with WiFi and money and whatever else I can. I'm wondering if anybody can share some useful resources concerning the legal support part of it?

I just finished this relatively non-noisy #noisevember composition. I'm experimenting with dynamics and clarity of parts (via eq, saturation, etc) and how they are affected by mastering methods, so any comments on the sonics are appreciated. Gracias in advance.

Probably not of much interest to most Mastonaughts, but I've started a of sorts on my new website.

The episodes will probably comprise a series of monologues as I ponder out loud on the nature of life, the universe, and everything.

Ho sempre amato Coleridge, da quando l'ho incontrato ai tempi della scuola. La sua Ballata in particolare — così affascinante e misteriosa. Così, come già altri hanno fatto prima di me, ho pensato di scrivere dei brani ispirati a questa magica poesia.

Questo è il quinto, e si chiama

As Green As Emerald

In questo post spiego perché questo è per me un brano speciale:

Anche su #funkwhale e #peertube!

Una volta ho scritto a Kerry Minnear e mi ha risposto sua moglie, gentilissima. Chissà se si offenderebbero sapendo che ho dedicato questo brano a Kerry ^_^'
