Pinned toot

I went to college for Art & Graphic Design. It was the first time I was completely surrounded by other creative oddballs and felt like I belonged somewhere.

A long time passed in the regular world where I didn't feel like that anymore.

Then I found out about Mastodon and this instance in particular.

Even though I don't post art as often as I post randomness, this is the first time in years I've had that feeling again.

Thank you all for being yourselves.

just some added info for people that don't know much about indian classical music (Ragas):
It's very different to western music in that each piece is played over a single drone. The emphasis is on the scale used in the piece, and the themes/improvisations around it. So, no chord changes/perfect cadences etc. I feel like it often loses something when chord changes are added.

โ€œSo what do you think about the late winter?โ€

Well, Itโ€™s getting harder to deer these days. Iโ€™ve been deering for three years now and hope to keep deering for the next ten. Winter is tough deering anyway

โ€œThank you, deer. Back to you, Aprilโ€

This implies your time serving the machine is its own reward

As someone who has been working since he was 13, let me just say, no it isn't

A job is just that. A mechanism of self-preservation as part of the infrastructure in the current incarnation of civilization. You are who you are. You can enjoy what you do, but your job is not "you"

Yeah, please don't do these things, thanks ๐Ÿ˜…

Me, in a Mood, looking through flyers: Ugh, look at all this unnecessary stuff, so much conspicuous consumption driving the misery machine and headed for the landfill

Also me: Ooo I could use one of those

Friends, as we head into #Ramadan, please take special care to CW your posts about #food. Your observant Muslim community-mates will be fasting between sunrise and sunset, and using a CW will make life a little easier for them.

Just started work on a little cautionary tale about conducting an orchestra without the proper training.
