Pinned toot

A passage I quite enjoyed from Eckhart Tolle’s, “The Power of Now”:

“Realize deeply that nothing you ever did or that was ever done to you could touch even in the slightest the radiant essence of who you are.”

Yeah this was definitely not the version I watched. Wow

Old movies to watch or re-watch: with Charles Bronson (1974).

I think I remember parts of this movie from when I was a child — which begs the question, why the hell was a child watching this film? 😆

I don’t think you can unless you also and as well.

I’m sure for most people, getting rid of Instagram and WhatsApp might be difficult, but trust me when I say that it’s much easier than you think. It feels so good to no longer directly support those platforms.

Feeling like another Charles Bronson movie after watching Once Upon a Time. I think it will be the original Death Wish from 1974.

Well, was enjoyable, and as I mentioned before, that Morricone score is perfect. Time to look for another to watch.

Well, tonight I will finish watching “Once Upon a Time in the West,” my first Leone film. I was enjoying it last night but had to quit about an hour in. That Ennio Morricone score though 💯

It didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, having read Christopher Wylie's book, Mindf**k and deleting ALL of my Facebook accounts, including Whatsapp and Instagram, but is still a very important film to watch. Strongly recommended.

... after I check out The Social Dilemma, that is.

I’m off tomorrow and so it’s going to be a movie night. I think it will be Once Upon a Time in the West tonight.

just like alternative to twitter shouldn't be just about using mastodon to carry on the hatred and indignation spread through memes and people trying to get the better joke on the latest political disgrace of the day. it's about changing the whole point and idea of online interaction. it's about being better ourselves, not about finding a 'better' piece of software.

This is the point in the evening where I should probably go to bed, but who am I kidding that is not happening

@robin I get tired of the continual Twitter-fights and people holding others to incredibly high standards. But I realise that without action, without a plan, the words on the bird site are empty and meaningless.

Essentially one is partaking in a ritual to boost the egos and exposure of a few select commentators, and those commentators will do nothing else but comment on things.

They warn about things getting worse, then things get worse, and they continue to warn.

and so on ...

I’ve been thinking about getting a first . Full type of thing, because why not? Need to get some ideas and .

Forget , I seriously need to rewatch the modern classic , Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s been, like twenty years. Time for a rewatch.

Hey everyone, this is my first toot here. Nothing profound, just saying hi.
