good morning, throwback to that angry bird I met in Amsterdam [cw angry bird] instagram.com/p/s4foAMDBlQ/

good morning, my hackathon project's todo list is looking pretty good!

Not much to the readme but the code is here if you're keen: github.com/ashfurrow/buggy

Good morning, enjoy this advertisement that has been repurposed as Art [content warning happy child, ec] mastodon.technology/media/xoVz

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

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 [cw an american apologizing to all of canada, and a canadian not accepting that apology]

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

pray for my plant, whom I'm about ready to give up on

good morning, this is a musical typewriter, no not the fun kind

Number 1 Artist: The Weakerthans
Number 2: John K. Samson (frontman of The Weakerthans)
Number 3: Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans (a collab)

@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: wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/s Another Weakerthans song, "Night Windows" is also based on one of his paintings: wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/n

@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.

the bumper stickers you come across in NYC, I swear...

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

new york, in way too many ways, is a city of extremes

@ashfurrow you’re missing a sticker with an elephant 🐘😝

good morning, happy 1-year anniversary to whatever this was :dont_at_me:

yes I’ve listened to the problematic podcast but I promise I feel guilty about it
