Pinned toot

Dear neighbours. Anyone else, operating phrases like "Russian trolls", "kremlinbots" and other general dehumanising concepts, please step forward, so I could block you. Thank you in advance and sorry for the inconvenience. I'm not having this shit again here. There's Twitter for that.

Pinned toot

Now, suppose it's time to make :)

I'm an amateur classical . Started learning properly at 34 and cannot imagine stopping any time soon. Love Fryderyk . Admire Arthur and Emil , and am trying to model my playing on them (extremely arrogant, I know πŸ˜…).

I love and am enslaved to two of them. Love , ships & books about sea adventures. enthusiast. Love fountain pens. :)

I speak , and now study

I might have missed it, but is there a way to read a local timeline of another instance without having an account with that instance? Have it in another column on the web interface, like a timeline?

Already found the icon! Adding it to my extremely slow website. *gg*

Does anybody know if there's a logo in white on transparent instead of usual blue on white? Can't seem to find.

It amuses me that McDonald's and other fast food places call themselves "restaurants". :)

Now it suddenly occurred to me that with V. we simply were not meant to be.

She's enamoured with Norway, its twilights, its fjords and cold sea.

And for me it's Mediterranean, narrow streets and white stone houses, scent of greenery heated up in the sun... :)

Outside my open window somebody blasts from their car. 😁

"Amore, amore, amore, amore, amore, non si puΓ²".

He also spends time remembering his late wife, so I'll need female names, too.

Calling and fedizens.

What were your grandparents called?

I have an itching to a short story about an old man in , who lived through WWII. I'm not sure yet if he'll be a Pole or a Jew. I'd like to look at possible names. A ring to the name might partly define a character.

The only thing preventing me from collecting pianos is their price and size. πŸ˜…

"Off with racism! Blacks are no different than whites!"

My teacher on my uncertain and often incorrect wrist/finger movements over black keys. :)

Like a magpie that I am, I made myself a new shiny account. :) It can be found here:

Now does somebody know how to follow people from other PixelFed instances?

Legacy free G Suite doesn't show Google ads. It also doesn't track user's search history, including voice search, and device data.

At least it promises so, as even free G Suite is considered to be a business account.

That's me suddenly remembering, that I have three active legacy accounts, one of which was for my old blog domain and has been abandoned for 5 years. :)

I wonder if people would have already established colonies on and , had they stopped wasting so much money and efforts on killing each other and inventing new creative ways to do it.

Seriously. So much resources go into war. In lots of regions people starve, but those militarists have almost unlimited access to resources.

Such a shame on humanity.

literally. πŸ˜‚

In Brazil a woman pushed a priest off the stage when he said that fat women were not going to Heaven.

Sometimes I wonder if my neighbours are deaf.πŸ€”

Sure, I never practice piano after 10 p.m. and generally don't make other noises. But still. Not a single complaint or even an acknowledgement.

Except for that downstairs neighbour, when he once asked with a smirk if I was the one who played "Seventeen Moments of Spring" theme. Can't shake the feeling he was laughing at me. :/

Fun fact. My manager has repeatedly pointed out that I lack in the teamwork department and need to work on my collaboration skills. However, 90% of "thank you" cards I receive from other employees via the corporate acknowledgement system are for the Teamwork.

The funny thing is, I'm sure I would have loved for its minimalism and Markdown support.

But it's definitely not a platform for bloggers. It's a platform for sysadmins who can run their own server. :) All other options are indecently expensive.


Somebody is trying to download Chopin's Premier Concerto performed by Emil Gilels and The Philadelphia Orchestra off of me.

Alas, the upload speed is low and the connection often breaks, and I've been searching internet for some time now about how to improve torrent upload speed. I want this unknown person to be able to hear this excellent performance so much!

And no, I'm not ashamed. is a treasure that belongs to the humanity. And so is .
