With the #twittermigration in full effect it’s time I reached out for content:
Looking for anyone tweeting about #folklore / #neolithic / #history / #archaeology, especially #british / #european / #scottish / #irish / #welsh / #english or #wrestling / #ProWrestling / #aew / #AllEliteWrestling, #nature / #gardening / #outdoors / #permaculture, #SimpleLiving, #pagan / #druid / #paganism / #witchcraft
Aaaannnnnddddd…. I think that’s it.
@JamesGleick When Sweden was still a more-or-less socialist country, Science Fiction was frowned upon as "escapist literature" when citizens of course should occupy themselves with solving real problems. The state TV refused to show Star Trek. When VHS came there was a lively trade in Star Trek tapes amongst the state TV's technical staff, who could tape it off of feeds from abroad. Those days are gone, thank goodness.
I just saw the #StandingStoneSunday hashtag and want to share this photo I took in Avebury in June when the weather was very, very hot
Here’s your reminder to ditch the #Twitter link on your website and replace it with a link to your Mastodon account.
#Chautauqua, the famous summer arts and philosophy resort in western NY, founded as a Bible camp, was also apparently “crawling with queers” in the early 1950s. Here’s Michael Rumaker‘s description of Chautauqua in 1951, when he was 18. Yes, he lost his “gay virginity” (his words) at Chautauqua that summer. Has anyone written a queer history of Chautauqua? #queerhistory #histodons #LGBTQ
“Time is an enormous, long river, and I’m standing in it, just as you’re standing in it. My elders are the tributaries, and everything they thought and every struggle they went through and everything they gave their lives to, and every song they created, and every poem that they laid down flows down to me – and if I take the time to ask, and if I take the time to see, and if I take the time to reach out, I can build that bridge between my world and theirs. I can reach down into that river and take out what I need to get through this world.”
- Utah Phillips
#StandingStoneSunday The Devil's Arrows in Yorkshire in February 2009. Three of four of these huge stones remain. They are arranged in a straight line and probably date from around 2000BC. Their exact purpose is unknown. The name comes from a legend of the Devil attempted to throw them at nearby Aldborough, but missed. There is an apparent alignment with the most southerly midsummer moonrise. The grooves in the stones are probably from natural weathering #Archaeology
I made the mistake of checking in on my 'other place' profile - it actually made me feel queasy at the opinions being openly expressed there; the people who are just plain wrong being promoted, valourised.
I've seen so many toots saying this, but you really do only realise how awful something is when you escape it, put some space between you and it...and then look back in.
You see this? On Nov. 19, militants defending Welaunee (aka the Atlanta Forest) felled a few trees to block access to a police firing range in the woods. Bonus points: the trees took out the power to the range and gave folks the chance to smash the pigs cameras. We've said it before and we'll say it again- take notes, yall! Read more details here:
@noracodes I really resent the whole "Mastodon is too technical" thing because
1) it feels like a concerted effort by a subset of influencers and opinion leaders who have realised that Mastodon is a lot harder to game and they may not be able to preserve clout they didn't earn, and
2) I'm a music major who doesn't use cohost because I couldn't CSS my way out of a wet paper bag, and I picked up Mastodon inside a couple of minutes, tops. People are trying to speak "Mastodon is too hard" into existence because they don't want their world to change, but an unchanging world is a luxury some of us have never had.
Yearly reminder to not give money to the Salvation Army. It is not a charity, it's a fundamentalist Christian organization that supports anti-queer policies. Support mutual aid resources instead.
