Pinned toot

Hi mastodon.art!

I've moved here from mastodon.social, am entirely new to the world of all things art, and am merely aspiring at the moment. Got myself an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and have been doodling around in Procreate. I'm hoping to get inspired and learn from all your amazing pieces of artwork.

@minga Oh shit I didn’t realise you were on here! :D

"We've moved beyond the idea that women wearing pants is a problem. Women wearing pants is powerful, it's strong, everybody accepts it, and it's associated with the patriarchy, it's associated with being male. The minute a man puts on a dress it's disgusting, so what are you saying? Men are strong, women are disgusting? I'm not doing that anymore. I'm done with that. I'm a man in a dress and if I feel like wearing a dress I'm gonna wear one." - Billy Porter

We went to Dogs on Show again this year, having missed it the previous two years! SO MANY GOOD DOGGOS. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

The best part of having such a great dogsitter is that we don’t have to stop posting Clark pictures even while we’re away.

Version 1.1 of Mastonaut is out! Some of the new features include:

∙ Custom emoji picker: Select from the list of custom emoji in your instance when composing a toot! You can even search them.

∙ Mention auto-suggestion: Just start typing a mention using the @ character and Mastonaut will lookup users with that handle.

∙ Delete & Redraft: You can now re-draft your toots. Mastonaut will even reuse the original attachments so you don't have to upload them again.

The more Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook run into controversy, the more I think that the concept of social networks just doesn't scale well beyond roughly a few thousand people.

And why would they? Prior to the internet, what was the largest monolithic social network you could join? It was a physical limitation, but we're a product of thousands of years of those physical limitations.

If you run an instance that has closed invitations (by policy, not temporarily due to load or spam), I'd be interested in chatting with you about why your instance is closed, and how/if you allow new members, and what you do for people who you can't/won't let in. (I run a closed instance myself and LOVE it, so I'm just looking to get a sense of current practice, not for debate.) #mastodamins

I think I just got "Activated". I just got a call from a Washinton DC number and I think it was Korean spoken backwards by a robot.

If E3 is so good, why haven’t they made E4?

We went for our anniversary dinner tonight, then a wander through the city to walk it off afterwards. I brought the camera along and took some photos! flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

My wife and I have been married ten years today, holy crap. I blagged about it: blog.virtualwolf.org/ten-years

(Link contains _lots_ of selfies with eye contact).

We finished watching Good Omens tonight.

Ahhhhh that was so GOOD!
