Hi! i'm violet. i absolutely adore raccoons, they make me smile a lot.

I also care a lot about my friends who are the best, i love you all.

I am multi-talented in many fields and generally find myself drawn towards technology, art and videogames.

In my free time, I like experiment with new interesting things, make music, 3D models and just have a chat/play videogames with friends.

I am trans, ace, use female or nb pronouns and i will probably give you a long hug.

I'll get a photo of the outside of the boat tomorrow when it's light outside

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 looks like it'll be okay. I'm not really as big on Marvel as I used to be so rocket raccoon aside I can contain my excitement for it at least.

I wonder if iconfactory will ever make a mastodon app, I used to use twitteriffic back when I had an iPhone and that was a great experience

I don't have an iPhone anymore but it'd be neat to see, considering tapbots is now doing a mastodon client as well

Hello I am going to repeat for the hundredth time that I used to love technology but now I spend more time complaining about technology.

ranting about mobile apps 

on top of that I think account creation and royalty schemes are a fucking nightmare and should not exist. If I'm a one-time customer who is only visiting the area once I should just be able to order the food I want and not have to spend an extra half an hour trying to fuck around with a shitty broken account system. At this point it's easier to just phone the place to make the order, which sucks if you don't have any change on hand!

ranting about mobile apps 

even if a service has a functional website, trying to force installation of an app is really fucking annoying.

ranting about mobile apps 

I tried ordering a pizza while visiting a friend not too long ago and the order refused to go through on their mobile website and tried to force me to install the app. I had to fake a user agent to get the website to load the desktop site so I could order a fucking pizza.

ranting about mobile apps 

why does everywhere need a mandatory phone app these days

public transport, concerts, cinema tickets, fast food delivery

the apps are always bloat that ends up running in the background of the phone for no reason, slowing it down and taking up hundreds of MBs of storage space.

just let me use a website, please, I'm begging you. my phone is tired enough as it is.

Rant: Spotify 

I don't want to sound mean, I'm very happy when people listen to my music!

But these Spotify wrapped things are always a slap in the face. As an artist, you don't earn anything.

I have over 19,000 plays according to Spotify, that's just under 21 euros.

In comparison, I've earned a lot more from alternative platforms.

Please don't get me wrong, I'm really happy when you folks listen to my music. It's just important to me that you also see the other side behind the stream.

I tend not to listen to a lot of artists or songs on repeat and enjoy discovering new music by new artists I've never heard of, which is why as you can see in the first image I listened to 955 new artists this year. I love exploring bandcamp, it's a fun thing to do.

I don't use Spotify so here's 365 days of last.fm scrobble statistics instead.
