Pinned toot

This wednesday I got to know at the eye doctor that my optical nerves are 90% damaged due to glaucoma as well as the the peripheral vision of my right eye is totally gone.
I may take farewell from Fedi, maybe indefinitely

It was nice stumbling upon this thread about some time back and seei g the overwhelming support for this instance from the wider community:

A reminder for anyone new to mastodon who might not be happy with some of the racist and bad actors out there on other servers... Just import the fediblock list to your personal blocks and you will be safe from the vast majority of bad actors.

I took all the domains from block list and put it in a csv file that can be imported so you can block all hateful ...

Dude, why isn't there The Bible THE GAME? It's like Assassin's Creed but you're Jesus. Open world - you can level up your wisdom and perform incantations. You go from town to town defending yourself from Romans who are chasing after you, and in each town you gather apostles. In the midgame you fight Goliath, except he's Roman. Even though you win, there's a cutscene where you lose anyway and get crucified. Then Easter happens and you come back as SUPER JESUS. The game's difficulty ramps up to adjust for the fact you're now super powerful. You wander through the desert and fight Satan. You think it's the final boss, but then... YOU FIGHT GOD. How has this game not been made yet?

from the last several years Thor has been my favourite poster on Fediverse, always writes good toots

they don't seem to make movies like Forrest Gump, The Truman Show or The Sixth Sense anymore. it seems to be all superhero and fantasy movies now. at least that's what i see them advertise everywhere.

a lot of 90s movies were about having realistic worlds where extraordinary things happened to ordinary people.

with superheroes and fantasy, it's the opposite. the characters and/or settings are purposefully unrealistic and there's CG in every shot. such movies feel a bit plasticky to me.

"feeling plasticky" is a bit of a vibe of the post-2000 era, isn't it? everything's polished and digital. i think this is why the hipster aesthetic exists. it's the stark opposite of futurism.

someone called Mastodon as Macedonia

So many people I talked to here have left Fediverse
