@ashfurrow Um, wow. I absolutely love stickers but don’t know what to do with them.

@ashfurrow Yeah, I know. Where I work - WillowTree Apps - it’s all the fashion to decorate your laptop lid. I’ve thought about buying a cover for my personal MacBook Pro so I don’t have to clean it off if I sever sell it. 😀

@fahrni @ashfurrow I saw some blog post a few months ago about a product some made that was designed exactly for that. It was transparent and designed to be removable without leaving any residue behind.

I considered getting one, but I quite like the totally clean silver aluminum look.

@shadowfacts @fahrni that’s totally :valid:

fwiw I bought a big sticker from gelaskins of a photo I’d taken, then put the stickers on *it* to avoid this. I’ve spent too long with rubbing alcohol and cotton swaps to not think ahead 😜

@dasyatidprime sure! Do you know what the bowl says? I haven’t translated it yet.

@ischade @dasyatidprime thank goodness! was slightly worried that I’d accidentally bought like a really offensive shirt or something 😅

@ischade @ashfurrow I was altering it for pun purposes! I thought cat ramen could plausibly be ニャーメン (nyaamen), after the usual transcription of cat meowing in Japanese…

(I'm not actually well-studied in it, I only know some bits and pieces)

@dasyatidprime @ashfurrow I love it!!! (and yes, I totally missed what you were doing. 😳 )

@ashfurrow finally i can relive my childhood memories of giving myself arthritis

@ashfurrow Should be splittable on both handlebars so everybody gets to decide how they want to hold it!

Whenever I see this, I want to dress up as daft punk and do the robot rock

@ashfurrow it's an older meme format, sir, but it checks out

@ashfurrow You could always #AskMastodon for band name suggestions, and risk getting the #fediverse equivalent of “#BoatyMcBoatFace” (e.g: “The Kashyyyki #Moof-Milkers” or something relating to a rude #goose), but you might also get some gems to take back to your band mates.

Yellow Afternoon
The Tribe From All Nations
Wrung Out Sponges
Hank and the Second Chances
She Likes Cloth
Two Ducks Fighting
Music For Humans

What kind of music will you be playing? If it's going to be a They Might Be Giants tribute band, then She Likes Cloth is the only option.

@linkz57 we're very much steeped in The Weakerthans / John K Samson, so indie rock stuff for now :)
