Does Weird Al count? Because he is just as talented as any "serious" musician.

Also, The Presidents of the United States of America.

Tangentially related: if you see something that needs to be addressed now, like CSAM or gore, notify an instance admin via Matrix. That tool can send push notifications, so you're more likely to get a prompt response. Some instances also have public Matrix chats you can use.

You can find the Matrix account info for Lemmy users by clicking the "Send Secure Message" button in a user's profile.

What do the users in this community think about possibly migrating over to [email protected] and locking this community? While there's nothing wrong with having multiple communities for a topic, I feel like a consolidated community would be more fun and possibly get more overall engagement. And [email protected] is clearly the quieter of the two based on the number of posts and active users.

I'm curious to hear your opinions!

The new medium for the strip is up to you: newspaper, book series, online, etc. You want Dream of the Rarebit Fiend on Tumblr? Sure, the universe grants your wish.

If we work together we can stay one step ahead of the orphan crushing machine!

We are homeschooling one of our kids because his particular needs were not being met by the local school. Meeting other homeschool families is always nerve-wracking for me. I never know if they're going to be a normal family adapting to an unusual situation, or tinfoil-hat nuts using homeschool as an excuse to hide their children from the outside world.

Loans aren't the problem. Insane loan debt is a symptom of an unsustainable higher education system.

You can learn a lot on your own, but many careers require a formal education (medicine, law, engineering, etc.). By itself, banning student loans within our current system merely makes it harder for poorer people to attain those careers.

TL;DR, the AG asked for a bench trial, Trump's defense team didn't respond, and so Trump gets a bench trial. It's possible that a jury trial would have been disallowed in this particular case under New York law, but the defense didn't even bother to ask.

Whelp, that's on your people, Donald. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
