For my post (finally!), something I wrote in my journal last year:

"[At the start of the pandemic,] I was a heterosexual neurotypical Christian who liked a drink and had three sons. Now I'm a bisexual ADHD Quaker teetotaller with two sons and a daughter. And two cats."

Anyway, I'm 49yo, live in London, married, the children are 21, 18 and 14. Day job = lawyer. Fervent supporter of trans rights. Heartily recommend therapy (and not waiting till you're 48 to start). Pronouns: he/him

French speakers! I can read your posts (with a little help from Deepl when you get too idiomatic) but my French isn’t good enough to reply back. Which would you prefer I do?

Francophones ! Je peux lire vos messages (avec un peu d'aide de Deepl quand vous devenez trop idiomatique) mais mon français n'est pas assez bon pour répondre. Que préférez-vous que je fasse ?

Stochastic Terrorism: can be applied to not only the likes of right-wing mass shooters, but also TERFs, right-wing media sources, etc.

I want to help get out the message that there are valid reasons for some of the friction and lack of features in Mastodon, while there is also of course plenty of room for improvement.

The inability to free-text search anyone’s messages or anyone’s hashtags across the Fediverse is instrumental in keeping harassers and trolls at bay. Abusers must work harder to find conversations, there are no ”quote-boosts” and no viral rewards. Incentives and abilities to torment are restrained.

my number one most anticipated film for the #CannesFilmFestival2022 is George Miller's Three Thousand years of Longing. feast your eyes at that description.

It was the FA Cup Final yesterday? Amazing how the cultural imprint of the FA Cup has faded over the past few decades, even as football generally has become so much more dominant. When I was a child, “Cup Final day” was a notable event, even for those (like me) who have very little interest in sport

If you enjoy music but you're not a Eurovision fan 😮 , there's a night of alternative music just getting started over on @jnktn_tv going on right now and carrying on for several hours:

jnktn.tv 🎧

It's powered by the Fediverse platform @owncast

(Technically the jnktn server is not federating yet, but it shows what Owncast is capable of 👍 and you can follow them on their Mastodon account at @jnktn_tv)

Me when our 14yo chides me for putting the napkins on the wrong side of people’s plates. (Apparently there’s a right side? 🤷🏻‍♂️)

Profoundly disappointed that The Lion King is currently trailing in that poll

seriously considering that bikes are the anti-cigarette as an accessory cause whatever you're doing, whatever you're wearing, being on a bike is going to make you look like a huge dweeb

Children of Men (2006): SUCH a great film. All the more so now its vision of a near-future world gone completely to shit looks even more credible than it did in pre-crash times
