    Tusky, Husky, Fedilab, Mastodon. The default Mastodon Android app is decent. The mobile web app works great too.

    Thrice is still to this day one of my all time favorite bands. They started out a shitty pop punk band and grew and matured with me.

    I went through a rough divorce a few years ago. Sounds like you've got a plan and a good head on your shoulders. You'll come out of it a better person. If you need to talk, let me know.

    I'm still playing Apex Legends. It's a lot more fun now that they added the 3v3 Arenas mode. I hope it stays permanently.

    I was a GPM user from day one. I loved it, but after using YouTube Music since the beginning I have come to like it even more. The "For You" mix is great, the pre-made playlists are great, and I love the UI. I mostly listen to playlists, albums, or the personalized mix so it's perfect for me.

    I'm self hosting a docker image on linode. The premium only features are still premium only, even when self hosting. The free version suits me just fine though.

    Love my Pixel 4. If I ever go on a trip and forget my camera I don't worry about it. Plus battery life is great.

    I started playing Valorant and I don't really like it. it's fine I guess but I feel they should change the name to "Hide Around Corners".

    I've been using YouTube music since launch, and pretty exclusively for about 8 months. I'm loving it. The UX is better than GPM. Music Discovery has become easier and more accurate. It now almost has complete feature parity with GPM. I've already moved my uploads and playlists.

    I have and use YouTube Music but I still have a collection of mp3s mostly from the 90s that I have kept around in one place or another (old hard drive, Google Drive, Google Play Music, Plex Server). Some of it isn't on any streaming service. I can stream it from GPM, YTM, or Plex but I do like to keep an offline copy on my laptop and desktop for playing in a local music player app sometimes.
