Halloween & Christmas arrived early!

I ordered several things over the past few months and they’re all arriving at the same time.

Why isn’t there a record emoji?

There’s a vhs one, but not a record?

Got a COVID test today. 9yo was sent home from school with symptoms. So they tested us both. Results within 96 hrs. Until then. 9yo stays home.

Looking forward to seeing how many COVID cases the kids’ school since we know there is one.

This is the wrong time to realize that we, my family, need more social contact with people. We are fairly isolated and self-contained. So, I guess our first 2 years here were training for this one? 😅

Need an app or something to be able to create playlists/collections of albums and be able to view them and play them as such. Not just throwing entire albums of songs into a playlist.

I don’t want to get out of bed, but I always feel like I’m wasting the day if I don’t. Not like there’s much going on. If I get up earlier, the weekend will seem to last longer, right?

I hate watching a video about music and it mentioning a number of different albums and I react: “oooh! That’s such a good album. I need to listen to it again! Oooh! That’s such a good album I need to listen to it again!”

I need a way to simultaneously listen to all 23 albums mentioned in this video and enjoy every second.

I am always complaining about not having time to listen to music in my list of things to listen to again, vet i am constantly looking for something I haven’t heard before.

I had to go and run Windows Update, didn't I?

In other news, got to hear some new tracks in progress that I can't wait to hear get released.

I've been purposefully spending my days not on this site, because I am getting really fucking tired of the bullshit.

And it's been very very good for me, to only dip in for small doses.

And YOU should be thinking about why it is that every BIPOC that you know is spending less and less time on here.

And if your white fee fees can shut the fuck up long enough to realize it is, in fact, your fault.

Listening to this reminds me of Alabaster (Missing you! 🖤), who introduced it to me. I gave away my copy to a mutual friend. It went out of print. My MP3s of it were total garbage—unlistenable. I finally found a copy.

I think it’s more sentimental than good, but I still like it.

I dread when it’s time to do a massive upgrade to this instance. I have no clue as to what I’m doing. Just to be transparent. 😅

A month later and I’m in the process of moving all the accounts over to it. Good times. And it’s actually been mostly painless. A few things have cropped up—like when people tell me they’ve swapped up the name servers for their domains, but haven’t. That’s been it, though. Mostly painless.

@chigh best part about moving to VPS is I have rebuilt the system twice and it takes less than 5 minutes.

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
