Here’s another band from Asia: this time from Japan. I LOVE when marching bands also do choreography.

Show thread

Oh wow, I don’t think I have seen a marching band from Asia. (Or maybe I just wasn’t paying enough attention in past parades.) This is an all girls band from Taipei, Taiwan.

Okay so this is a float for Almond Breeze (blah blah, corporate sponsorship) but these bees are very cute. I also appreciate the fact that someone designing this float thought “I think some bees are redheads.” I agree.

Show thread

I am just a sucker for a showy, well coordinated marching band. And there are so many in this parade!

Show thread

Wow, these Rosemount HS marching band (from MN) uniforms are cool.

Show thread

Ooh, I like this float! From local animation company: Stoopid Buddy Stoodios

Show thread

Fitz and the Tantrums were a fun, high energy pick to start out the parade but not their best song. :/

Show thread

Mario Lopez (who just works so much) and Ana Gasteyer feel awkward co-hosting for NBC. Still miss Stephanie and Bob and their thinly veiled contempt for each other towards the end. :bloblewd:

I’m going to be annoying for the next couple hours while I live-toot while watching the . As a native I grew up watching this damn on TV every New Years morning. It’s nostalgic and it’s a personal tradition.

Happy new year! This year I resolve to not change a thing. New year, same old me! Woooo! :yay:

I have tracked anti-trans legislation for 3 years. Every day, people have asked me where to move or how at risk they are in their state.

So I created the anti-trans legislative risk map.

This is my final map of 2022.

Okay so as a concept, everyone is weird in private but for some reason we’re supposed to hide those things in public. And some people are better than hiding those things than others.

But in the history of humans, have we ever tried just being weird in public? I mean, like, EVERYONE not just some subcultures or random folks here and there being their weird, authentic selves.

Would everything collapse? Or would we reach a collective euphoria?

Um, I saw Avatar: The Way of Water 

Oh also, could SOMEbody please care about Spider? Geez, the family who basically raised him didn’t even care to try to rescue him at all.

Show thread

Um, I saw Avatar: The Way of Water 

It was… not that different from the first : same meaningless plot line, same archetypes (absolute good and absolute evil), same appropriation of indigenous cultures to be “exotic” and “different”.

I did enjoy some things: the idea of being able to communicate with another species and have emotional relationships (but not just that of a pet owner) like those of the na’vi and the tulkun (whales), and always love seeing the fantasy creatures and environments.

In true James Cameron fashion: it was TOO LONG.

Please, if you are not a person of African descent, reconsider creating 1st-level toots using the #BlackTwitter #BlackMastodon #BlackFedi or #BlackFediverse, etc, hashtags. In this moment of flux, a lot of Black folks are trying to find each other via these hashtags. It might be more considerate to use #BlackTwitterAllies and other such hashtags to show support for Black communities without co-opting them.

Hi folks, serious talk. This time of year can be shit, so 29 of the nicest people on youtube retro gaming have put together an all day playlist of lovely videos linked together with TV style presentation. Joining 46 hand picked episodes from lovely channels are classic adverts, continuity links, new shorts and a lot more. Perfect if this time of year is not what you hoped or for winding down if it is. With love from all of us to all of you, however it's going.

It’s 6:40am on Christmas Eve and someone is setting off industrial (professional) fireworks nearby and it sounds like bombs (or what I imagine bombs sound like, having never heard one IRL). I hate it. :ablobcatcry:

Even if it wasn’t Christmas Eve, it’s TOO EARLY.

Happy #BlackFriday! I *think* the hashtag is meant to celebrate black creators (artists, musicians, #writers, etc.) so today I wanna tell you all to read work by #NnediOkorafor!

Personally I love the Nsibidi Script Series is a coming of age of sorts about a U.S. born girl living in #Nigeria who learns she has ✨ magic✨ powers and learns how to use them. #BlackMastodon #YAFantasy #AfricanLit #AfricanFantasy

Hm, folks on this instance, is there a way to follow tags? I can't seem to figure it out :blobhaj_thonk:
