can’t you already hear the cloying first act β€œi want it” song showstopper about spreading magic after she spends her last 20 pound note at a london coffee store? a slightly whimsical tune just after contrasting her rejection letters with hogwarts acceptance letters? the meritocracy that totally exists and isn’t a neoliberal fiction rewarding her for her struggle being the REAL acceptance to hogwarts that these libs crave? and her haters, the REAL dementors looming at the edge of the castle gates?

haha but let’s be honest folks. the REAL bad harry potter hamilton-style musical we’ll all have to hear about won’t be a retelling of the stories from the books. it will be a saccharin and probably slightly dishonest retelling of jk rowling’s rise to international fame. this will happen in our lifetimes and it WILL win tonys

folks when i say this is a REAL BEAT from hamilton....

here's me covering eugene by sufjan stevens, from "carrie & lowell"

i have been practicing this song for four years and it feels amazing to finally record a version i like πŸ’œ

Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.

Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).

Aw just when I thought I should rein in my Friday afternoon Paula Temple #techno posting, I find she's got a track called Post-Scarcity Anarchism πŸ’˜

Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
