@ajroach42 this thread is making me think of last.fm and Pandora back when algorithms didn't seem as creepy and was more new and exciting.

In the end, the music i listen to comes from my friends, whether they're making it or talking about it. Things like scrobbling on last.fm or sharing on music blogs or whatever is just trying to scale up the very personal/vulnerable relationship you need with someone to talk about music.

You wanted to leave and
you left. So here
you are with
your freedom.
You ride in
your nostalgic trams to
villages full of eidolons.

even in stillness.
They flake with rust.
You lick
your freedom from
your cracked lips
and taste solitude.
You left
your oasis
in a distant land.

@pixouls it is rather embarrassing how easily my stuff SPREADS when given the choice 😂

@pixouls I'm really enjoying the ska-ness of the song you posted

@pixouls i interviewed her for my podcast ages ago! (mp3s aren't hosted anymore--always happy to send along--but here are shownotes and artist links: grrlongrrl.wordpress.com)

She will prob laugh that I've come out as nonbinary now bc i wasn't at the time lol

@pixouls makes sense! If I'm handwriting notes, my screen is to the left and notes on my right. (right handed.) but if i had the choice it'd be all in front of me, prob spread out in a semi-circle haha.
