Mastodon needs list maker

As my use of the was expanding, and without algorithms telling me what to see I decided to create lists of my followed depending if I wanted to see local information, politics, 2SLGBTQ views, tech stuff etc etc.

Unfortunately you cannot import lists into my new instance so the work was rather in vain – it also took ages.

Some clever bean should create a drag and drop tool to create lists and drop followees into them.

Truro on US TV…

It’s not unusual to have a mention of Nova Scotia on a movie or TV show but Truro, Nova Scotia… they weren’t very nice about us in the context of the plot of Blacklist. Q. Where’s my money? A. If I had it do you think I would be in Nova Scotia? Ouch.

Looks a bit different too.

Certainly not Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada - some coastal town with tropical looking mountains in the background.

I Lost My Talk by Rita Joe

I lost my talk
The talk you took away.
When I was a little girl
At Shubenacadie school.

You snatched it away:
I speak like you
I think like you
I create like you
The scrambled ballad, about my word.

Two ways I talk
Both ways I say,
Your way is more powerful.

So gently I offer my hand and ask,
Let me find my talk
So I can teach you about me.
