Ummmm, welllll, I don't actually post much to any other metal communities because they tend to have different rules for posting, and different people. This is one of those things where I'm a bad example of the "advice" I'm giving. I'm not a big poster anywhere. Wasn't on reddit either tbh. I genuinely wish I could find the same "vibe" as the .world metal C/ that was also friendly to direct YouTube links. There's a couple of good metal communities on lemmy, but they tend to dislike the YouTube links, or you catch hell for it from other users lol. It's one of those where I'm not following my own beliefs because it screws up other people's flow.

I get where you're coming from about needing minimum activity to make a subject matter to build a true community. I even agree, it's consolidating the smaller ones into a central one and hoping it can split up later rather than just disintegrating after some schism in the user base that I object to on a meta level.

I just think that spreading awareness of the various communities and encouraging crosstalk is a better long term goal.

Also, I hope that my word choices and phrasing don't come off aggro or with ill intent. I've been reminded that tone isn't conveyed well via text today with an unrelated chat away from lemmy. Since there's been a few points where I might have taken my own words wrong, just want to clarify that if this was in person, my tone would be friendly and you'd see me smiling at someone that's wanting to build good community.

Comments don't need aggregation.

Look, we obviously have a difference in philosophy of the fediverse here.

So, let me back up a second and explain that.

The fediverse should be about communities being disparate. No single instance, no single mod or admin owning an idea, or the consequent community that forms around an idea. Part of why reddit became so horrible was the inability to have a viable alternative community around a subject when one went off the rails because someone had total control over a word, like "parenting", or "knives" or "gaming".

The more you consolidate communities, the more you give fewer entities control of a idea/concept/subject.

Comment aggregation is nice, if all you want is a single feed to scroll through, but the price of it is too high.

For easy grouping, until lemmy itself has a "multi" function, apps fill the gap okay. Not great, but it does work if one uses apps at all.

[-] [email protected] -2 points 8 hours ago

Encourage cross posting. The function is viable, and when it's used, it not only improves each community individually, it keeps awareness of other options.

The only thing "killing activity" is people nodding being unaware of cross posting existing and/or using it.

Consolidating communities defeats part of the purpose of federation and decentralization.

Man, I wish I could afford their rates. They're just a little bit higher than I can justify compared to other options for a given service.

Free starter! Yay!

I've never had that but just the idea made my mouth literally start watering. I hope it's as good as it is in my head, so that you can enjoy the heck out of your work :)

Chickens will eat the hell out of other chickens. There are no fucks given in that regard. To the contrary, they like cooked chicken, and some will eat it to the exclusion of other meats or even live insects.

Seriously, chickens are metal as fuck!

That would be an incredible piece of ink for real

Nah, that's part of the point of granular control. Sometimes you want/need a decrease in a given band without an increase in the rest.

Perfect example is the Metallica album St Anger. If you fiddle with the eq in a good player that allows for per-album or per-sing settings, you can dial back the over mixed high hat and partially dampen the tin can snare. You end up with a better sound (particularly in headphones) that doesn't fatigue the ear as much.

If you took those attenuated bands and upped the others, you'd just have muddy mids and you'd lose the clarity of James' low end.

That album is so over drummed that it's hard to listen to without eq tweaks. With them, it's a much better experience.

Never, ever fuck with Dolly. Doesn't matter why you go after her, there are millions of people that will instantly hate you. With that many people around the world, there's going th be some crazy ones that will ruin your life if they can.

This is why I hate not being able to do shows any more. I miss this kind of energy and sheer immersive brutality.

This may be the sickest cover of the decade. There's so much funk in there that the room you're in will stank. Just bloody amazing track.

Chili ala Patrick (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 1 month ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Patrick is the cousin I cook vegan food for. This is his favorite.

2 tablespoons olive oil.
1 medium onion, diced large.
1 clove garlic minced- or 1/2 to 1 tsp garlic powder.
1 or 2 bell peppers, red, yellow, orange or (ugh) green.
1 large or 2 medium zuchini. 1 (15-oz) bag frozen prediced butternut squash 2 tbsp chili powder.
1tsp cumin. 1tsp black pepper.
1 heaping tsp paprika, smoked being a plus.
1 (16-oz) can kidney beans, drained.
1 can black beans, drained.
2 cans tomato sauce.
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, or parsley if cilantro is soap to you.
1 medium jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely diced, or 1/2 can adobo.

In 6 qt pot, add oil. Sweat onions until tender. Add garlic if using minced and cook until fragrant. Add zucchini and saute until zucchini is barely tender. Add seasonings , squash, beans, and. simmer 15–20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until hot. Ready to serve. However, this can be done in a crock pot for up to about 2 hours if necessary for other food prep.

Best served in bread bowls, but you definitely want some good crusty bread, or some corn bread to go with if you serve in regular bowls.


This can be done as non vegan, but even as a meat eater, this stuff is better without. The textures of the butternut and zucchini disappear when I've tried adding chicken.

The recipe is modified from an old Publix recipe that I can't find online currently. The original is pretty amazing on its own, but I've tweaked it for my cousin over the years, and he says he prefers this version, so that's what I went with. I do have the original saved in my recipe manager app if anyone wants that; it uses more frozen veggies, and is missing some of the seasonings.
