“Corporations are people, my friend!” – Eugen

FACT CHECK: Kibousoft is, in fact, more of a corporation than Eugen, who is a person (pretty sure). Eugen gets 3 pinocchios for this one

@spookcentral I can appreciate art on a 1-2 hour refresh rate, tops

Goin' out on a limb here to say I think the hollywood bepis robot's posting frequency is too high

@Pixley no no no, you misread, it SHOULD say “Light, sensitive areas of the brain”

Fondly remembering when I got murdered in Apex Legends by a guy whose ps4 username was BIG_CHONGUS

bigshoulders.city

bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future.1 Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.”2

Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas (like at the mastodon exhibit at the Field!), pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.

For now, membership in bigshoulders.city is subject to approval. if you don’t have an invite or referral, email our admin with a Toot-length intro.3

Membership is also free: hosting, administration, and domain registration are provided by our admin. Right now that runs about $100 a year, not counting labor. You can buy him a coffee if you like.

Boundless credit to our sister instances in Portland and Philadelphia for inspiration.
