Pinned toot expires today. Yeah well, uh, that was that.

Presumably this is the last song I will write this year. See you in 2019!

"At the start of this year my goal was to write a song a day. I'm not sure if I've even averaged a song a week, to be honest. I'm still happy with my output, but hopefully I can do more in 2019."

I've written about my failure to write a song a day in 2018 here:

Now I wonder where I go from here.

If I haven't tooted in a while it's because I've gone down a factorio black hole and it's deep. I currently have a solo game, a multiplayer with friends hosted on AWS, and a third game for the tildeverse, also hosted on AWS, that starts this weekend and will run only on weekends.

Hello Nothing against you, but I'm looking for an instance with a more vibrant local timeline. I'm going to head to, see you in the fedi!


I get the real impression that I don't really know anyone online, that I don't have any real "internet friends".

I'm only slightly embarrassed that my Spotify history contains my own single and EP.

Yes Flagpole Sitta is Harvey Danger's one hit, but they're actually a great band and you should check out their other stuff especially King James Version

As usual, nearly 11 o'clock on the west coast of the US is the absolute worst time to announce this, but...

I recorded a full song for the first time in over a month!

"This was so obviously a hip hop beat from the start. I don't rap, and I don't know anyone who raps, so I took a vocal sample from LibriVox to fill it out a bit."


You know, I think there are millions of people that want new pop rock music, songs like this, and it just basically doesn't exist.

So I'm practicing my song for open mic tomorrow night, and my fingers really hurt. This is some combination of 1) I don't really have callouses for playing guitar anymore and 2) the action on my old guitar is very fucked.

I should toot more about baseball, because when I made posts on birdsite about the 2018 they looked hilarious in hindsight.


Celebrating my wife's birthday tonight with a historic San Francisco streetcar charter! Her birthday was actually in Feb (she turned 30) but we couldn't get the streetcar until April.

Got into the office at 8:30. Why did I get into the office at 8:30?

Not interested in doing any work at work, but there's nothing non-work that I want to do either. I'm just bored.

Wow, I swear I did it again, right after I posted this:
