“Bennie and the Jets” is my favourite Elton John song, and I love his live improvisations.

I wish I could find more songs with that kind of groove.

@molly0xfff As with anything good, content wasn't created out of a motivation for profit. Advertisers were not involved in whether something came to fruition. We didn't spend half our time protecting and defending our presence on the web. Nobody cared who you were.

@mastodonmigration Sooooo surprising that a bond from a corrupt af auto loan shark was rejected. Obviously no one else is going to put up a legitimate bond because trump doesn't have the liquid assets to back it. Let the mar-a-lago yard sale commence.

Let’s chat

Do you feel you have less interest posting about politics / current events lately?

Why?

Do you notice the same responses over and over again?

Do you feel headlines and events seem to go nowhere or seem to repeat?

Do you think people are more polarized or less polarized?

Are people beholden to their sides’ ideology— the kind of people where if you looked at their profile you would know exactly what they think on most issues without nuance?

I just wanna hear where you’re at…

    Is there a way to bet on the collapse of Trump's "Media & Technology Group Corp." stock?

    Strikes me as a sure thing, though I can't be sure when, given that Trump world corruption could prop it up for some time to come.

    So I won't short the stock directly. Better to look at put options, I suspect.

    Related: I will have absolutely no sympathy for Trump cultists who lose money buying this BS stock.
