First tooooooots...

I do help desk/service desk work, and am studying computer science as an older student. I love running services out of my home and tinkering with hardware.

I'm a democratic socialist / anarchist, love music like Scissor Sisters, Carly Rae Jepsen, Janelle Monae, Disasterpeace... hoping to find more people here

I'm overwhelmed with new homeowner issues and don't post much, but I might start treating my mastodon feed like my underused blog..

so follow me?

:Doctor13: doctor who, just vaguely spoilerish Show more

omg i LOVE Jodie Whittaker. What a brilliant doctor. #doctorwho

I have seen the new #DoctorWho and I am happy to report the show is in exceptionally good shape for 55 years old. And the new Doctor seems to have the right attitude from the start: she helps people.

Odd fact about me: my "first Who" is the wrong actor for the time I was watching the show. I started watching #DoctorWho in summer 1986, which was Colin Baker's era - but at that time, the station in Australia on which I was watching Doctor Who was airing Jon Pertwee episodes, so Pertwee is My Doctor despite my having been born after he left the role.

computer nerds
do us all a favor
literally everyone who isn't a programmer

get
a fucking
union

The amount of clout a programmers union would wield is just fucking incredible. Stop fucking around like just because you get a lopsided paycheque the rest of us won't ever see things are somehow ok. They aren't.

Organize a union.
Help fix this mess.

hey so just checking, who all among women/queer/trans/poc is in the NYC area or wants to be and doing #ml? i know a surprisingly decent (and ethical) company doing hiring in the near future

men, were you also not aware that you could just not attempt a comedic reply to a toot about awful men?

me @ other leftists: don't ever feel like you're not doing enough! capitalism is exhausting and running yourself ragged isn't worth it! small steps add up!!!

me @ myself: I'm not doing enough

Colin Mochrie is very good

image 2: "Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human. To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing it's mind and soul so tragically."

Re-drafted to include captions to the image, I'm sorry for not doing that before.

"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"

Tom Waits has a new song out, it's a cover of an Italian Anti Fascist song youtu.be/50GvkAO0OIg

Brap! 💨

A space for your toots and braps. This is mainly a personally-run instance for me & my family, but we are friendly to socialists, anarchists, feminists, LGBTQIA+, the poly/non-monogamous, and general lefty activism. Also welcome: technology, programming, and whatever. Feel free to join! But don't expect 100% uptime. I'll try to alert when downtime might occur, it should be minimal. Alternate interface available at https://halcyon.brap.party ... Pinafore alt interface also coming soon.
