Some good stuff on this list:
I don't know how much of the Home/Local timelines show replies back and forth between two people you follow, but if I just absolutely wrecked someone's timeline with a semi-private conversation, sorry about that. Just looking at my "Home" timeline and realizing the wall of text that now exists there lol
I wish I could really push myself to get off my ass and record some songs for once. I've been saying I'll do it for years and keep putting stuff off. Goddamn.
My "zone" is in writing/playing music. I feel like I missed out on an alternate life where I could have been a touring musician and instead am stuck in an endless existence of IT support.
In a writing mood, but nowhere to really post it. I've thought about write.as or some other option, but everything feels so "deserted, isolated blog island" or "not appropriate for this length of content". Yet again, missing what Tumblr had created in its heyday. We need an open-source copy of Tumblr.
Mastodon doesn't exactly feel like the right place to post lyrics, songwriting/poetry, etc either... 😕
I trained a neural network on 1,228 types of cookies and apparently these are what cookies sound like to it.
I'm generally not a console gamer (haven't had one since N64 and PS1, play PC instead) but... all this smash bros shit is making me want a switch. Especially bc it's really clever (for instance, the opponents you fight when you play MM reference MM games/lore) and looks like it has a pretty good singleplayer mode again.
That and I want to play Octopath Traveler and possibly other games that will be exclusive. This is the first nintendo console I haven't been sour on since the N64. Hated all the Wii shit.
I do wish there was a decent replacement for Tumblr. Something about the post length and blog design, but with social network features just works.
I think there's a place for a network like that. It works well for posting art, poetry, photography, songwriting, longer blog posts, and the ability to like (and reblog) really helps things gain traction.
I do miss the good days I had on Tumblr. Have actually quite a few lasting friendships that started there. It got me through a long weird period of my life.
Tumblr: We have an idea, let's let loose a half-baked bullshit "AI" and see what it tags NSFW and take a bunch of people's SFW blogs and posts down for no good reason
Great idea. At some point can we realize that black-box algorithms and neural networks and AI-related shit are still mostly just buzzword BS- yet still used by companies in their relatively poor state to enact significant effects on products and people?
