How do you chill?
Once more for the people in the back:
Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
Your message will get further with a CW. By not CWing your politics etc., you're preventing people from boosting them, because people can't always deal with difficult subjects Right Now. Saying 'I don't CW this/that' gives the impression that you don't care about spreading your message in a meaningful way, you just want to force the closest people to look at it, whether that helps or hurts.
It takes a lot of us awhile to absorb this, but please, try to accept it.
I did something about it.
From now the funds from any of my music purchased though my bandcamp will go to directly to my friend's favorite charity: https://www.specialeffect.org.uk/
Tom really got a kick out of my weird Xmas music. He always backed my Kickstarters and purchased albums and what not. I think he'd like this.
So go buy some music:

I just found out that a friend of mine... a friend I met on and knew through the internet, but a person I really connected with... died of brain cancer a few months ago.
I don't want anyone to feel bad for me. he had a wife and close friends and family that are surely hurting badly... I'm fine.
I just feel like I have to do something about it...
I'm sharing this to remind me to do something about it...
I copied that from my birdsite account. I'm over there pushing my game and I got distracted and slipped into some real talk. Wanted you all to hear it too.
It's from the heart! 💖
Three days left to get Radical Chess by backing my rad kickstarter. Don't say I didn't warn you.
