All caught up... venturing into the federated limeline. Wish me luck.

I have been spending a bit of time the last few days on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr one one thing I notice right away is that the most common post type seems to be screenshots of posts from one of the other networks.

FEDERATION!

How can we take advantage of this type of federation being normalized and integrate that knowledge into our anticapitalist self hosted decentralized future?

I've been thinking for years now that I don't let myself fully enjoy albums now like I did in the past.

It's clearly due to technology: it's far too easy to create a playlist or something and just listen to individual tracks.

Anyone interested in starting an album "book"-club or similar?

I'm thinking of picking something new from Bandcamp (or other fairly freely accessible platform), having a few weeks to listen to it, read the lyrics etc. Then join together somehow (xmpp or irc room, jitsi meeting) and discuss what we think.

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

Well, that was a bit dissonant... just went from Iron Maiden to Neil Diamond 😀

Is seeing a request for "RT's" in a post a sign of someone who hasn't learned the lingo (which is OK, we were all newbies once) or of someone crossposting from the birdsite (which is not)?

Having my first listen to Ozzy's "Ordinary Man". After the first few songs it's feeling a lot like Sabbath's "13" (which I considered an excellent return to form).

WTF is wrong with this world? Am I actually supporting Nick Kyrgios' latest rants?

Have to rebuild my filters since moving to the new instance. Maybe I'll find some stuff I've been missing out on and might actually want to read now.
