the mastodon instance at is retiring 

for a lot of reasons, both personal and practical, i don't think i can effectively run a public mastodon instance any more, and i need to retire i want to do this responsibly and make sure everyone has a chance to migrate and export properly, so here is the plan for the instance retirement (feel free to share this link around):

due to ongoing moderation load issues and understaffing, between now and 1 november, the instance may be undermoderated. for other instances, if this poses an issue for you, i encourage you to use federation tools at your discretion. i would only ask that you be clear and public about your decisions so that users can figure out where they will be able to migrate their accounts.

thank you

did you know has a blog? i often don't and i write the thing

i'm investing in it more and just added a cute lil thing to it

hi, I focused on completing something album length during the pandemic. it is finally released and is a half soft half harsh noise album inspired by swamps, plants, family, places, field recordings, decay, lushness. it's my first ever bandcamp release and i would be honored if you peeked.

"yeah, i know how to master audio"

*opens audacity, adds fade-in/fade-out, slaps reverb on the whole thing*

here u go

@d6 yeah! i count myself very lucky to have had great music influences growing up, including my noise friend i met bc he worked with my older brother. friend ran a noise label for our little region and was peddling releases (his label and others) constantly. face of vehemence was his recommendation for someone brand new to noise and i took to it immediately. looking back i guess it was a new album still? this was like 2003 or 2004. prog/psych rock dad and jam band band older brother-in-law laid the groundwork for me becoming a noise fiend.

this is the album that got me into noise. i bought it from a friend on CD out of a plastic bag he took to the noise shows he organized at a local coffee shop when i was in high school and he was finishing up college. i spent countless meandering country drives with this in the CD player with the volume as high as i could stand it, just basking in the literal vibration of the car.

@monsterblue hell i want to *be* a magic cicada who never knows sadness

instrument idea: elaborate hive of cells each with its own cicada and a variable sized hole. modulate by covering/exposing the holes.

also the cicadas are magic and will never die or need food or know sadness
