Good mornin, and happy American Thanksgiving. Please enjoy the Americans’ “wtf?” reactions to the the phrase “American Thanksgiving” – I look forward to it every year.
Good morning. A bookcase I bought came with a damaged shelf and instead of just replacing the shelf, the company gave me a second bookcase, so I LEGO’d them together into one super-tall bookcase. https://mastodon.technology/media/jexIXixDcN_v2Q4mekc
good morning, just admiring my colleague’s GDPR tiara https://mastodon.technology/media/cwrwQvVD3feK7CzAwk0
@ashfurrow You always respond to the last one, makes me wonder if you are trying to break something with a giant thread. :-P
That table is kind of neat.
@ashfurrow Impressive but you will get tired of putting stuff back on the top shelves that your cat(s) knock off.
@selea I don't even know! We got it while it was much bigger, and it died back because we forgot to water it :( It seems similar to a "nerve plant", which is really sensitive to hydration I guess!
@ashfurrow Actually, wood ash is a natural mineral concentrate that purifies the soil. Tobacco ash is actually quite amazing if you can get it, it's a concentrate of the premium fertilizers tobacco is fertilized with and can nearly bring back a dead plant.
Also you're probably going to give the “threading” an interesting stress test after a while if you keep going
@ashfurrow The weakerthans are great, but maybe you need to branch out a bit? Maybe even listen to a band not from Winnipeg? Crazy talk, I know.
@ashfurrow How about Wintersleep? Also from Canada, also start with W. Might take a bit to get used to after a steady diet of folk-rock.
@bremner there is also, I should mention, quite a long tail of other, non-Winnipeg artists on there :)
@bremner I’ll have you know that Jim Bryson is from Ottawa!
I do need to branch out though. Mostly it’s been due to me learning guitar, and many of John K Samson’s songs. A kind of feedback loop I think. Right now, I’m listening to a lot of his older punk stuff from Propagandhi.
So yeah, time to branch out 😅
@ashfurrow I've only listened to a bit of the weakerthans, but everytime I listen to Heavyweight and their song comes on, I think I should listen to more.
@Tuxhedoh That's so cool! I hadn't heard of that podcast before – you like it?
The "Sun in an Empty Room" song is based on an Edward Hopper painting: https://www.wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/sun-in-an-empty-room Another Weakerthans song, "Night Windows" is also based on one of his paintings: https://www.wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/night-windows
@ashfurrow I really do enjoy Heavyweight, though the most recent episode might've been the worst of the season. I didn't really like it. You should definitely give it a shot.
