What's your favourite fruit?

Hey, I voted for your song "go try reality", thought it was really great! :blobcat_mlem:

Thank you for entering it, hope you do a song next year!

An Eevee I made for a friend back in 2016. The fur was fun to make! It is brushed out yarn that was then flat ironed and cut.

His self-reply sort of implies he was just joking, but it has a weird passive aggressive tone that sounds like he very much isn't joking.

Even if Elon doesn't end up buying Tw*tter I am staying here.

I love it here. It feels like home. I have found a family πŸ’š

Just saw someone commenting from a university's Hometown server in the Philippines.

Would be fantastic if universities could get the Fediverse to a wider audience like they did with email and the web.

Eurovision winners' music video released, war 

(Originally wasn't going to post anything serious on this account, but this is such an unusual moment. CW:d to allow discretion.)

The winners of Eurovision yesterday have released the official video for their song today. It's unique, filmed in an actual warzone by those being bombed and fighting back:

Sharing it here as I think there is hope and pride in it as well as despair and horror.
