Just heard Watkin Jones Group are planning to build a 30 storey, 825 unit build-to-rent and co-living development at Portcullis House (just at Charing Cross station, ) - gonna be a huge building if it goes ahead - these co-living guidelines sounds interesting, like a modern day commune.

I just realised I like Rob Zombie. Two banging songs just played while I was working on something.. I absent mindedly turned them up super loud and then was like hang on, those were great, what did I just hear?
Rob Zombie - Dragula

Rob Zombie - Living Dead Girl

They're going in my playlist alongside Rammstein - Du Hast - anybody got any suggestions of anything similar?

Hello Mastodon World! Here we are once again. After starting this mastodon node around 4 months ago, I tried inviting all my fb friends to come make accounts over here, thinking... "Who wouldn't want a more free and open social network?" How mistaken I was. A tiny few came to say hi (thank you, the few who showed support), but most of my "real friends" still can only be contacted via fb. 😩

If you're still undecided which console to go with this generation, people have figured out that they can float ping-pong balls on the Series X vent... so I think we have a clear winner.

For Microsoft Windows users who want to try out Gemini you can get a browser here:
marmaladefoo.com/pages/geminau

Gemini is a new alternative to the web so 'geminaut' is like Chrome or Firefox or the Edge browser except for geminispace.

Gemini is much simpler than the web and is mostly text with links to other stuff that can then be downloaded.
Think: no cookies, no GoogleApis no sign in here to Facebook etc. It is perfect for personal pages and blogs, a bit like the Web in the early 1990s.
