the story of voice&bake 

It differed from the other voice chats in this online space, but it was never really moderated, I did nothing but tell people when I'd start and what we were making.

It is likely never coming back. There is no service right now wich I'd like to host this in. I don't know any body who'd join. But some time in the future I hope to once again be part of voice&bake. Such a good little concept.

the story of voice&bake 

It grew out of me not being able to type with sticky fingers, but ended up being a nice mix between a call in cooking show on the radio and a livestream where all the viewers are for some reason also on voice. Some times it was like a moderated panel discussion and some times a podast never meant for release.

I don't know why we stopped, maybe stuff just got in the way. It specifically wasn't a podcast, it was never recorded. But it had that same talky vibe to it. Some times there would be four people making bread and some times ten people making cookies.

Or rather I was making stuff and I ended up being the person who held the concept together but the baking still served a purpose.

People would come and go in chat but usually some of the same people would stop by. And over the course or two(ish) hours we had made something and talked about nothing in particular.

It was really fun. I would talk about nothing in particular or people would talk amongst themselves. Some times I would give out handy tips for baking.

To be fair, I didn't host this online space. But once in a while, usually around once a week, I had a voice chat channel in wich I would bake something, while talking to strangers.

It could be anything from cookies to cake or bread or whatever I felt like that day. It was kind of like gamestreaming, except it wasn't.

I used to be part of an online .. space (yes, lets call it a space). And this space made multi-person voice chat possible.

I used to be part of something we called voice&bake. To be fair, when I say be part of I mean I used to host it. I was usually the only one baking.

The following thread will be a story of something I used to do, and now wish I did more often again. In fact I haven't done it in over a year and don't even know where I'd begin to get this set up and rolling. I'll call it a concept sketch of something I once managed to pull off 🙆‍♀️😀

also: following toots will be cw'd so as to not clutter your TL, but it's both interesting and very likely non-triggering 😉

christmas selfie EC 

I'm alone in the office so far. Some more people are due in soon. Christmas has started and as usual I'm at work. (but to be honest it's a bit slow..) I'll do some of my "when I have time"-work..

Even cooler: My new kettle is made of glass and I will now try to share a slow motion clip of water boiling 🌊

I got a new electric kettle as a christmas gift. I can finally throw out that old plastic thing I had and make a cup of tea for the new actual cup I also got for christmas ☕

Christmas 

A slow and calm early celebration, such as they are some times..

Maany people have this yet to come but I have all my christmasing done for this year already. Feels very effective 🤔🎄

since we're celebrating on tomorrow instead of the proper 24:th of december it's really getting close (I'm lookung at you, rest of the world).

We're doing the last of the cleaning and wrapping. Soon it's time to put the tree up. that's almost the only decoration we have this year, don't know why 🤷‍♀️

starwars (I haven't seen the last film yet) 

Some say it's best to pretend anything but ep. 4-6 didn't happen. But I think that's silly..

It should be more like if you want political drama with so-so acting you watch 1-3. If you want the original "genuine" starwars excperience you watch 4-6 or 7-9 depending on if you want more than one woman in your films or not 🤷‍♀️

this is obviously a hottake.. I don't know the films line by line. I look forward to the latest one in a few days.

Doing some more baking in prep for christmas. This is shaping up to be pretty fun I think 🎄🥳🙋‍♀️

Also we're celebrating early, because work 🤷‍♀️

The morning was rainy, the day has become windy..

looking at displays. Maybe it's finally time for a new one.. I've been saying this for years. Maybe it's still years ahead 🤷‍♀️ 🖥

In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
