I just bought a disco album about Brexit 😎
I mean, good satirical take. But it's also horribly catchy. I'm hooked.

Pinned toot

Okay my identity is a work in progress. Apologies. But I'm back.


Faces along the bar
Cling to their average day:
The lights must never go out,
The music must always play,
All the conventions conspire
To make this fort assume
The furniture of home;
Lest we should see where we are,
Lost in a haunted wood,
Children afraid of the night
Who have never been happy or good."

Show thread

"I sit in one of the dives
On Fifty-second Street
Uncertain and afraid
As the clever hopes expire
Of a low dishonest decade:
Waves of anger and fear
Circulate over the bright
And darkened lands of the earth,
Obsessing our private lives;
The unmentionable odour of death
Offends the September night.

homophobia, birds, lewdish, funny 

expectation for running a zoo social media: look at our cute lion cubs!!!

reality: the male birds are fucking, Lorie. by choice.

Hmm. Maybe the "whom to follow" feature is buggy in Fedilab. Now following a f**kton of people at random there, see what that brings…

Clarification: "philosophy" not "Philosophy". I don't give a damn about whatever Whitgenstein said, but if you want to talk about what the Chinese Room thought experiment says about sapience, you had me at "what".

I would love to fully switch away from birdsite but I don't see it happening because there are topics I can read there that I can't seem to read here. I mean, I'm okay with shitposting and cat pictures as much as anyone. But I also want to talk about politics and, I guess, philosophy?
Maybe birbsite wins by virtue of having so many f**ing users -- "all human life is here, damnit?" With that in mind, I'm also @stareye, but it's no better.
Fedilab supports the "whom to follow" thing, but there is no-one (!) in "UK politics" or "philosophy", either here or there?

I suppose I have a lot of emotional capital invested in the idea of the Disney Star Wars being not good. The originals were important to me, and I hated the prequels. I've not seen any of them.
Couple of days ago I saw the first ten minutes of Rogue One, and in that time I went "Huh? Why is?" about three times. Not a good sign; normally I don't spot suchlike, I'm **in** the movie. I'm afraid your movie franchise is very much dead…

Well that was all a bit rushed and last minute -- "shit! look at the time!" -- but that's an awesome Christmas dinner cooked and eaten. We rock. :)

Thought I was including a URL and Fedilab has embedded the vid! That's clever.

You ever look at graffiti and wonder "...how did they get up there?"

It's not when you can't see home, that's still too close. It's when you can't see how to get to where you can see home. That's when you've lost home.
"There," father says, "just above those three stars in a line. You can't see it, but that's where Earth's Sun is."
I can't see it.
