Content warning: Pinned post, about following from multiple addresses
Hi, when I follow someone I usually do this from multiple accounts, with different servers and platforms. This is partially as backup. It’s also because different software has different features. E.g. at the moment of writing I mainly post from my Friendica server, but it doesn’t yet support polls, or account migrations. So I also follow from my Pleroma server, which does notify me someone has migrated.
I also sometimes use platforms that support nomadic identity, that allows my channels on multiple servers to be synced. From software that doesn’t support that, a follow request looks like multiple separate requests from those channels.
Content warning: pinned opinion about nude scenes in films
Many actresses are somewhere in their career forced to do a nude (sex) scene. The male actors hardly ever are. To me the purpose seems sales rather than art. I'd wish for films to never include nude scenes and to always use suggestion instead.

@GidiKroonbut I'm mainly using my own Friendica for now. Even though I have been on the fediverse for a few years, I've never done an #Introduction post, so let's do one for this channel.
I tend to post about actresses and singers I'm a fan of, sharing news about their new projects as well as my thoughts about films and tv I watch. In between I give my take on political things as well as about the fediverse. When I learn new things hosting a fediverse server or other technical things, I try to share them here too. Longer posts may end up on my blog

In real life I work as a software developer, but I keep work separate from a private account like this. I play (beach) volleyball when I can, at a very low level. I live in the Netherlands and occasionally cycle and take photographs. I read and watch sci-fi and fantasy, and am interested in ways to achieve social justice, gender and race equality, sustainable energy use and climate justice.
Feel free to follow, as I will also follow other accounts I find interesting without expectation of them following back. Feel free to share (boost, repeat) my posts if you want, using whatever share function comes with your platform. I tend to close DMs to only allow people I follow. I check my fediverse accounts only one or a few times a day, typically on my phone or tablet, so I tend to not be part of live discussions.
First time in years of running this server/account that my dozens of saved searches have a hit and put a post in my timeline of someone I don't follow yet.
Anyway, it's not good news about a Jodie Foster project having its release delayed. Secretly I already knew that from https://deadline.com/2023/08/true-detective-night-country-premiere-moves-january-2024-hbo-1235533433/ ...
Just watched Jodie Foster in Hotel Artemis. She deserves a better script. I have no idea why she chose to do this.
Usually I try to find something positive to say, but I get no further than she's indeed in it.

(*) this is the release year. The films were made in 1975 and with Jodie's birthday in November 1962, that explains the age.
