"'You have to tell me more, Lay'tek. What is this hearing about? Is it something I have done? What are the consequences if we lose? What is this all about? I don't know anything, I think I might be losing my mind!'
Lay'tek, in the shape of Morgan Freeman, leaned over the desk and padded Mike on the arm."

"Of all the things Mike would expect to find on a spaceship, this wasn't one of them. If Carl had surprised him, then it was nothing compared to how he felt now. Being abducted by a furry alien was like driving a bumper car, while this was backing a truck down a twisted mountain road 80 miles per hour while his pants were on fire. "

"Mike Williams had a very forgettable face. People always seemed to have trouble remembering him. Not his name but him as a person. 'Excuse me, have we met?' they would say and not 'I know I have seen you somewhere before!'. At social events, people would introduce themselves even though they had already met."

"Mike Williams was an extremely normal person. If you can use the word "extremely" about someone who is absolutely not extreme in any way, that is. He lived in a small house in a medium-sized town. Not a Big City, but not a small village either. He didn't hate his job but was as fond of it as he could be. He worked at a helpdesk and answered the same ten questions asked in one hundred different rude ways over and over again."

... okay, y'all can stop boosting this now. Thanks everyone, I have a culture/art alt on icosa now:

@zatnosk

Leaving the living room to go to the kitchen, I turn around and say a last thing to my girlfriend.

Me: luv you
Her: byebye

True love πŸ’•

Gah! I just woke up the Tiny Human by making a loud noise in the kitchen, and now I feel horrible :'(

Where is the baby? You told me there would be a baby! What do you mean 'sleeping in his pram?'

Currently listening to Metatropolis: Cascadia, which is a short story collection sequel to the Metatropolis short story collection.

And the quality and imaginativity of the stories are noticably lesser. Less inspiring, less progressive, less awesome.

Especially the third story of the collection, which I'm currently listening to is disappointing. It reuses characters from a story in Metatropolis by a different author, and they feel mangled to my ear! Not at all like they felt in the original.

I've decided that my new account on Icosahedron ( @zatnosk ) is where I talk about books, comics, movies, and similar cultural phenomena.

So go follow me over there, if you want to talk to me about stuff like that and hear me rant about scifi or fantasy on occasion.

That means the server is down, right?

(sorry for deleting an reposting that multiple times. Kept finding tiny errors)

I'm considering moving my primary mastodon activity away from (currently dead) manowar.social :loading:

I'm thinking of trying to compartmentalize my(net)self a bit, and make specialized accounts.
I already have this one as a personal alt, but I might convert it to :crt_w_green_lines: weird-tech-cybre-dreams

Probable accounts:
:crt_w_prompt: tech ideas and exploits
:blobross: art & culture

Please boost, as I only have 11 followers here and @ me with suggestions! :thaenkin:

Sooo. My primary instance is down, and I can't reach it.
I hope it comes back online at some point. Or at least that I get to extract the data from it. Soooo many ideas.

Ah well, I could probably extract all my public posts from other servers such as :cybre: or m.s.

Phew, contacting support gave me a reactivated payment link. And pretty fast at that!
Now starts the waiting game.
