{point} [of internet] missed

this was not meant as a mechanism to force-breed spruce
bringsteen albums down our throats as if we were slutty baby
birds. at least, i suspect -- that we'd just talk with
people all about the world we'd not have an opportunity to
otherwise, and share good albums, and the great stuff that
would have stayed in a small pocket reaches the whole world.
instead america breathes a collective sigh of relief as a
taylor swift snafu gets a congressional investigation after
30 years of ticketmaster's draconian horseshit, bla bla,
only the microsoft corporation has free speech; anyone who
speaks ill of them will be demoted from the meaningless
twitter blue to banned as microsoft basks in the
unquestionable legitimacy of their, er, Moissanite color
check mark

does anyone remember the story of how the unicorns died?

unicorns are not dead, because theyre undieable.
maybe they got trapped in the sea again?

BUT yes, suggesting albums is still welcome.

sorry, i was just complaining, "the internet used to be cool
but now it's collapsing into a black hole of selling us shit
like TV"

i do have fond nostalgia for watching dust particles in the
sun, in the 90's, for twenty minutes at a time... no, i'd
rather not go back that far.

instead, i'd like to go back to when there was just like
"IRC" or something, and not "discord" or "mastodon" or
"reddit" like i have to pick a fucking team.

and that team has a fucking sensitivity committee and
nation-scale groupthink and... fuck it, i miss just saying
"list all the channels on DALNet" and there are 10k+ and you
just pick ones that seem interesting and most are misses but
found some of the most interesting nooks that way
