Really enjoying poolside.fm/

It's silly and weird in a way I enjoy. A lot of the music is excellent as well.

Labor Day in America. Using this day to teach my kids why labor policies are important. That took about 30 minutes and they were bored. Now we are having a living room dance party. Later we might do a jigsaw puzzle. 🧩

I'd never noticed before that listen and silent are anagrams of each other

I don't think I've seen it in the timeline but:

It's #BandcampFriday

You have a little under 14 hours to make purchases that more directly benefit the artist.

Since my game friends can’t get together I’ve been playing a lot of Board Game Arena. The upside: I can play a TON of games without buying them. The downside: I keep buying the games I play on Board Game Arena.

hey @robert sorry to see you close shop.
We are honoured that you named us as a place for people to move to.

There are other places that have boardgamers like elekk.xyz and eldritch.cafe/

Anyway, thank you very much for making a space on the fedi for hobby for the last few years

Birdsite, Doctor Who fandom 

Just when I think I'm totally done with the birdsite I find something like this on there. :tardis:

Today's silly article was written entirely because I have a song from 𝐇𝐲𝐩𝐧𝐨𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐎𝐮𝐭𝐥𝐚𝐰 stuck in my head again. Guessing 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 song is left as an exercise for the reader.

I say things like "dude" and "sweet" a lot which dates me as Gen X even though most of the younger people who would notice don't know what Gen X is. Don't "ok boomer" me, boomers say "man," not "dude." "Ok Xer" is acceptable.

I'm going to actually try and write a story every week, because, as Ray Bradbury said, it's impossible for someone to write 52 bad short stories in a row.

This week's story is about wolves.

Dear apple Photos app: this is not person, is tree. 🌲

I've been playing with the Pimoroni Keybow again. I thought I'd write about it. It's a fun little tech toy, powered by a :raspberrypi: Raspberry Pi Zero WH, which seems hideously wasteful, but seriously, that board is $14, I don't know if you could make a cheaper compute component.

Anyway, here's what I did, with a link to my "code" on github. Honestly I'm most proud of the comment at the top of the file.

Things I should tell my kids 

Nobody likes doing dishes. Everyone likes clean dishes.

𝗦𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲:

Most of the 𝑺𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒘 𝑽𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒚 𝑶𝑺𝑻. But that's just good music in general. It's a little unfair that Eric Barone is good at literally everything, but I'll take it. Stardew Valley is a masterpiece.

𝑪𝒍𝒂𝒊𝒓𝒆 𝒅𝒆 𝑳𝒖𝒏𝒆 by Debussey.
