Good morning, I got a dino plant last night and it’s gorgeous! I took photos of it rehydrating itself, like the Trisolarans!

good morning, I'm sorely tempted to snip off and steal a cutting of this plant from work but Stealing Plants Is Wrong.

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. mastodon.technology/media/jexI

you're thinking "no one here has bumper stickers" and yeah, they're less common, but!

that just means that the bumper stickers you _do_ see are much much more potent

@ashfurrow I think it's called "Native American Genocide Day"

@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.

@gudenau haha yeah 😅 I’m going to start a new thread in 2019 XD

@ashfurrow Impressive but you will get tired of putting stuff back on the top shelves that your cat(s) knock off.

@ashfurrow Nice! My game of choice was always pinball - fond memories of playing that

@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!

@AskChip I'm hoping it can avoid the Great Compost Heap in the Sky but we'll see 🙃

@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.

@AskChip oh neat! that makes sense. I'm not a smoker, but maybe I can ask at work...

@ashfurrow No.

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 😅
