Can folks recommended me some things to watch on #vimeo? My usual YouTube method of looking up specific content creators that I know are good, and then watching everything they make, is useless here because I don't know who's on Vimeo.
Things I like:
-DIY carpentry and metalworking
-Let's plays, especially of indie games
-Ethical cute animal videos
-Science and history trivia
I know i'm risking bringing Voting Discourse into my mentions with this, but I just got a notice from my township that, since we voted in no-reason absentee ballots last year, I had the option of always voting absentee.
it made me feel good, hopefully more working and disabled people in our state will be able to vote now that they don't have to find a way to get to the polls or risk losing a shift/their job over it
a thing americans do that irritates me
just saw something that reminded me of this, but I hate the tendency for us (white) Americans to say "Im French" "Im Irish" "Im ___" when what we really mean is "My ancestors were ___."
I dont mind people being proud of their heritage, I'd be quite the hypocrite for that, but it just seems appropriative (is that even a word?). Many of my ancestors were Scots, but Im not Scottish, and it seems like Id be insulting actual Scots if I claimed to be
Is there an #Irish instance?
And just to be clear, I'm not talking Irish language or (God forbid) Oirish-Americans (no offense, you absolute swine)

Hey PDX Mastodon: I plan to join this Thursday's monthly ICE protest put on by the Buddhist Peace Fellowship. Let me know if you want to meet up there, or maybe carpool if you're coming from the east side?

As someone involved in film, I've been using Vimeo alongside youtube for some time now. There is an awful lot of good stuff on Vimeo by an awful lot of talented people. Give them some love this week please.
dauntless had a big update yesterday and introduced a new game mode, "Escalation." Instead of a battle being with a single behemoth, you fight progressively harder behemoths until you get to the top of the island, and sometimes even more than one monster at a time.
It's super challenging, but in a way that's fun, unlike the last game mode they introduced, Trials.
I'm finding it hard to concentrate on work today
