Does anyone know anything about Pleroma and why an instance might not be using integers for message IDs? Is that a new change in Pleroma?

Childqueen by Kadhja Bonet falls into several neo- genres but stands really tall on the strength of Ms. Bonet's vocal jazz skills. If I were to over-simplify things I'd say this is what you'd get if you made a Diana Ross, Family Stone, and Esperanza Spalding supergroup.

Today Me: well shit

Chelsea Wolfe makes heavy spooky gothy music. It does not "slap" as the kids say. But, if you need something to play while you're plotting revenge (something involving poison) then her latest album will definitely bring that mood.
