Instance meta 

This is a pretty small instance that I set up for friends, but for me is mostly a gateway to keep in touch with friends elsewhere on the fedi, as well as to meet new folks.

Registration is generally open unless there's some bot fuckery going on.

There isn't really a "theme" here but I'm happy to welcome anyone who is good-natured. I sort of want this to be the next evolution of that message board where you used to just go to hang out.

Hey peeps, I'm Stu and I run straylight.expectnomore.net. It's a small instance where I constantly try to cajole old internet friends into joining, but it's also open to anyone looking for a home online.

I post mostly about my pets, music, game development, and home improvement. And also usually links to weird shit.

The production is just worlds apart. Maybe it just speaks to Tyler, the Creator as a producer? I mean the guy is a mad genius. But I think also the standard has been raised in the past two decades also. Super interesting juxtaposition.

To this, which was on an album that was - a hit I guess? Do we have hits in the post-streaming world? I don't know, but Tyler, the Creator is popular enough to have made a commercial for Coke, so he's gotta be: youtube.com/watch?v=1gAHhLb6tj

Listening to some DMX because of course, and there's lots of early 2000s nostalgia for me in that, but after going on a binge of modern hip hop recently (albums from the last ~5 years) it's crazy to me how much production has evolved. The edgiest of edgy beats from 2000 sound so basic now. No disrespect but I find it fascinating.

Is MX Master 3 (Logitech mouse) a worthwhile upgrade over MX Master 2? Yes. I think it is. I was doubtful, but upon discovering that my scroll wheel no longer sounds like BLRBLRBLRLBRLBRBLRLB I was convinced.

Screaming at this list of “most American” and “most British” words (“Pus” is percent of US people who recognize the word, “Puk” is percent of UK people)

Fucked up that we only got one Danger Doom album.

Been getting totally obsessed with Tyler, the Creator in recent weeks. I love that I can still find new (to me) artists that do things to pleasantly surprise me.

Was thinking about the fact that I might not pay for #Spotify if not for Spotifyd. If they ever block the GPL powered server I will stop paying.
