There's a comedian I used to live with who is slowly getting more and more popular. Living with her was a TRUE NIGHTMARE, including a lot of her screaming at me out of nowhere and her threatening to sue me when I moved out, and every time I see her stuff RT'd it's ... weird. Not even stressful honestly, it's now just a kind of funny "bad roommate" story now, but it's WEIRD to see her get popular?
I don't know how to speak LA.

I made a thing, it's a code-generated number station podcast:
It has two sources of data: 1) my mysterious corpus 2) you can submit your own message.
Messages are encrypted and read aloud. There's also some music and other random variety. It's weird, but I like it. It's not quite as automated and/or 100% computer-generated as I would like, and I'll probably fiddle with it forever, but here it is!
we just gave Moro a (very badly needed) bath and she's soooo sooooft now and I can't stop petting her and saying "hello soft lady who is the softest lady of them all"
I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. https://mastodon-de-mob.codesections.com/
Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.
It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.
