Starting to think Sufjan isnt going to write an album for every state. Smdh

i am extremely proud of every trans person who came out over the last year. i am also very proud of cis people who had a questioning phase over the last year and realized they *weren't* trans. i love you all so much

we need to make changing your name common and accepted to help the poor cis kids who were saddled with names like Jack Dick and think they're just stuck with it forever

Yeah, sorry, I can’t come out tonight. We’ve got a little family project going. Yeah, we’re gonna put together some rolls of Family Cloth. What’s that? Well,

it's pretty hilarious that in Alice in Wonderland (the book) the supporting cast all represented different kinds of men who are insufferable and annoying

the caterpillar is a pompous old bitch, the mad hatter interrupts Alice and talks over her, etc

so of course when men remake the story on film they think the caterpillar and mad hatter need to be the best ever characters and very wise and cool

I met a traveller, vorpal sword in hand,
Who said--"two vast and trunkless raths of mome
Rest by the Tumtum tree. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a frumious visage lies, whose frown,
And manxome lip, and sneer of cold command,

You know, all the other ACME Brand products I’ve owned have failed in spectacular ways, but I’ve got a really good feeling about these rocket powered roller skates

Because I’ve had to tell 2 different people this in the last day:

Use ice packs on muscle injuries, not heating pads! Ice is an anti inflammatory, and it helps flush old blood out of the injury by constricting the blood vessels. Then as the site warms up again, fresh blood flows in. 20 minutes on/off for the first couple days.

Yay ice packs!

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other users, and only ever @ mention other users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet! Our beautiful icon is based on photo3idea_studio from, licensed CC 3.0 BY. It has been modified by!
