Update:
Y'all have so many good recommendations! So I compiled a list:
Places to get digital music, in order of most to least likely to have my stuff / for me to use

1) Freegal

2) 7-digital

3) BandcampΒ 

4) CDBaby

5) Resonate

I'm unlikely to use more than the first three, but it's super nice to have so many options that I didn't know about!!Β Thanks again to everyone who replied!!

Pirates (matey)
Communists (comrade)

what do these groups have in common? they all hate capitalism

@00dani when was the last time you saw a speaker that looked like πŸ”ˆ, a phone that looked like πŸ“ž, a temperature sensor that used a 🌑, or a … how did βš™οΈ become the settings icon over πŸŽ›/🎚 anyway?

i wonder what'd happen if we took a bunch of teenagers, locked them in an alternate dimension without our current iconography, and made them reinvent standard UX symbols

I just found out that the "wild strawberries" i've been finding in the backyard and eating are actually an unrelated plant called "snakeberry" or "mock strawberry"

me: "Well, that explains why they don't taste anything like strawberries"

my wife: "and that didn't tip you off?"

me: "I thought i was just... tasting them wrong"

the power of the brain to overwrite what it's actually sensing with what it expects to be sensing is very strong and disturbing.

someday game designers are gonna realize that making augmentations make you less human is actually a horrible, bigoted mechanic and the best tradeoff mechanic for cyberware in rpgs is the compatibility headaches you get from reconciling seven different networking protocols with each other and your own biology without it all shutting down

Every once in a while you see an article or something floating around that talks about people using public phone charging stations to steal data, and warning that if you're going to use them to use a special charging-only cable. Obviously, those are kind of a specialty item that you'd have to buy from online or whatever. Sometimes they're selling you a specific one. But all they are is a USB cable with the two power lines, but no data lines.

So here's how to make one!

Heterosexuals stop normalizing unhealthy relationship behaviors and then gendering them challenge

this kind of in-your-face combative messaging addressed at changing harmful behaviors towards queer people is a great example of a large organization doing pride right

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country

Hey so, I'm putting together a transmasc resource site (to include compilation of folks' self-reported experiences with transitioning, legal info stuff by state, a community/media side of things, and eventually hopefully community submissions).

I'm really interested in transmasc folks sharing what sorts of info they'd like to have covered, whether that's personal experiences they want represented or questions they'd like answered.

Pls send me yr thoughts, and boost this if yr comfy with it.

Mastodon and the larger fediverse puts curation and moderation duties back into the hands of smaller communities.

:battery_full: Curation
:battery_ok: Moderation
:battery_low: Censorship

The term censorship has gotten really watered down in online discussion. Turns out a lot of online actions fall into the first two buckets. Moderation is necessary, and curation can be quite good.
