Good morning! Today is the last day I share albums each morning. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ending with The Weakerthans' final album, the live recording of their final concert.

The Weakerthans, and John K Samson, mean a lot to me. Their songs helped me when I was in a bad place, and learning to play those songs helped me leave. Their final album is band at its peak - favourite song is Wellington's Wednesdays, and let me tell you why...

@ashfurrow i'm predicting at least 3 cate replies from pleroma instances on this one

Follow

@bclindner pleroma =

pathetic
little
e
r
o
m
a

I gave up actually

@toast @bclindner (to clarify, I don't think pleroma is either pathetic or little, except in the JS bundle size sense)

@ashfurrow @bclindner :blobsnuggle:
I like using pleroma as a backend, since it's easier on my server and doesn't do weird things I disagree with (e.g mastodon's insistence on caching and re-encoding all media)
but as a frontend I mostly use https://pinafore.social, so there's not that much of a difference for me tbh

@toast @ashfurrow i would love to hack on a Go fediverse server but while go-fed exists there's nothing really analogous to mastodon/pleroma/etc yet and i am not about to be the one to go through the trouble of building that

@bclindner @ashfurrow
want me to hit you up when I get around to it?
it's on my list (just fairly low below it, I wanna do the couchdb port to go first so that the server can use it)

@toast @ashfurrow i'll probably know either way, i check for new fediverse servers in other languages every like 3 montbs
