Grammy Nominations 2022: Surprises, Snubs, & More Takeaways

The Recording Academy continues to exist within its own strange dimension, one in which Jon Batiste is the center of the musical universe and the second Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett jazz duets album was one of the landmark popular music events of 2021. You have to hand it to them for the consistency, at least: So many extremely Grammys-esque artists were showered with nominations today in preparation for the Jan. 31 ceremony at, uh, Crypto.com Arena. Some of them, like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber a...

In an interview on Jamey Jasta’s podcast The Jasta Show released yesterday, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds volunteered that he regrets touring with Disturbed for Mayhem Festival in 2008. When asked if he had any bucket list tours left, Hinds responded, “No, I did a lot of tours I didn’t want to do though, like Disturbed and all that Mayhem stupid bullshit. G** a** shit. You gotta fuckin’ open up for Disturbed. You gotta play to people that like Disturbed.”

Turn any website into a Linux desktop app with open source tools

Mastodon is a great open source, decentralised social network. I use Mastodon every day, and it[he]#039[/he]s probably most common to use Mastodon through its web interface (although being open source, there are many different ways to interact with it, including terminal-based applications and mobile apps), but I prefer dedicated application windows.

Howdy, bakers!

Howdy, bakers! Submitted by 2ck on October 31, 2021 - 9:22am. Hello, Fresh Loafers! This is my first post on the site. I look forward to learning and trying your beautiful baking recipes :) About the site, I wanted to add a follow link for my Mastodon account, but the profile only allows an enumerated set of sites for some reason?? Couldn't you just have a generic (tag, url) entry instead or in addition? If not, could you at least add one for Mastodon?

Mastodon Threatens to Sue Trump's Social Media Site for Violating Open-Source License

Social networking provider Mastodon is threatening to sue Donald Trump’s upcoming social media platform for allegedly misusing Mastodon’s open-source computer code. On Friday, Mastodon announced it had sent a formal letter to Trump’s “Truth Social” platform, demanding it comply with the open-source license for Mastodon’s computer code within 30 days. If Truth Social doesn’t, then Mastodon could sue the platform for copyright infringement, according to Mastodon founder Eugen Rochko.

Mastodon Puts Trump's Social Network On Notice For Improperly Using Its Code

Mastodon has sent former President Donald Trump's company a formal notification that it's breaking the rules by using Mastodon's open-source code to build its social network, named Truth. The Verge reports: This news comes from a blog post by Mastodon's founder Eugen Rochko, but others have previously pointed out that the organization behind Truth, the Trump Media and Technology Group (or TMTG), was violating Mastodon's software license by not providing the source code for the site built on top ...

Trump Given 30 Days To Have His Social Media Site Comply With Open Source License (techdirt)

Plenty of people have raised concerns that Donald Trump's sketchy new social media site, Truth Social, is just a lightly reskinned Mastodon, which is violating Mastodon's fairly strict AGPLv3 license. As we had previously discussed, the aggressive (and sloppy) terms of service for the site claim that the code is proprietary, and even claims that "all source code, databases, functionality, software, website designs, audio, video, text, photographs, and graphics on the Site (collectively, the “Con...

Trump's Broken Social Media Venture Is Valued At Billions Of Dollars And Its Breaking Experts' Brains (techdirt)

Last week we wrote a bit about Trump's new planned social media website, Truth Social (which forbids too many capital letters, so I will oblige by not capitalizing the entire "Truth" part of the name, as Trump's branding apparently prefers). We mostly focused on the ridiculous terms of service (forbidding capital letters among other things), and the fact that it was already kicking people off the system (who only got on the system because Trump's coders apparently failed to properly secure the s...

Trump's TRUTH Social May Violate Terms of Open-Source Code It's Built On

ISayWeOnlyToBePolite writes: The new social network founded by former President Trump may violate the terms of use of the software on which it is based. On Wednesday night, after Trump revealed the TRUTH social app, Twitter users began to note that the network appeared to be based on an open-source social networking software called Mastodon, which allows people to modify the underlying code so long as they abide by its license. But the Trump network appears to have taken the publicly available c...

Watch Members Of Mastodon, High On Fire, & Yob Cover Mountain’s “Never In My Life”

Jordan Olds’ great video series Two Minutes To Late Night no longer drops a new all-star cover every week, the way it did in the early months of the pandemic. But the series is still going, and whenever it puts together one of those ad hoc remote-supergroup covers, it still absolutely rules. Two weeks ago, for instance, the series paid tribute to Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ version of “Stagger Lee.” Today, Two Minutes To Late Night salutes the great ’70s proto-metal hard rockers Mountain.

Mastodon – “Teardrinker”

Atlanta metal veterans Mastodon announced their new album Hushed And Grim, the follow-up to 2017’s Emperor Of Sand, a few weeks ago. But the one song we’ve already heard from the album, the hard-riffing “Pushing The Tides,” was decidedly not hushed. And neither is new track “Teardrinker,” which comes with a Lorenzo Diego Carrera-directed video of the band entering different universe in an empty warehouse. Watch and listen below.

The forest dates from the Miocene era 10 million years ago.Mastodons, horses, and rhinoceroses lived there.As we go about our daily lives, it's easy to forget that the places we find ourselves weren't always the way they are now.
